Home From West Virginia and Scrapbooking Contest for You!

Did you know I was gone? LOL!

This week I took my son and drove to West Virginia to visit one of my best friends, Michelle! It was great to go see her and her family and stay with them for a few days. She took me to her AMAZING studio and I was so impressed! The photos on her website don't do this HUGE studio justice at all. Everyone, if you are even anywhere near WV, you HAVE to go stay the weekend, there are rooms and everything!

We scrapped for most of the day on Wednesday and I was working on my album for the Making Memories Challenge at Faith Sisters. This is my first time working with an acrylic album. It was lots of fun! I am really pleased with how it turned out!

Click on the picture to see the rest of the album.

Faith Sisters has a great gift R.A.K. for our contest sponsored by Making Memories for this weeks challenge winner! It is the Fresh Anthology Paint Set and you will be sure to want it for your own! Winner will be based on the use of Making Memories product, creative design and theme. Upload your MM projects in our gallery for a chance to be featured on our blog and win this awesome paint set!

Storm in the Neighborhood

Homes were damaged and tress were knocked down as a strong line of storms moved through the state.

There were at least 17 unconfirmed reports of tornadoes across the middle of the state yesterday.

This HUGE tree fell down in the vacant lot just one house down from ours. Thank goodness it fell down now and not after a new house was build there. The tree fell from the back of the lot, forward and too up the whole expanse of the lot to the front.

Many of our neighbors had damage to their homes. Fences knocked down, and some had their houses bashed in by trees. See the bottom photo of a house just on the block across from us! They had just put the house up on the market to move, now they will have to fix it up instead. :(

We were blessed that the only thing that happened at our house were about 5 trees that broken in half and that were uprooted.

It was an amazing sight to see when the wind started whipping up and we all ran downstairs into an inside closet to wait out the storm. The hail was dime sized and it sounded like the windows were going to break.

We are happy that all is well now.... Just a lot of chain saws going today!

Scraplift Challenge and A Blast from the Past!


This week at we did a Scraplifting challenge. What you do is choose someone's layout that you love and recreate it for your own. Don't do it exactly the same, but do something that is inspired by it! Here is my layout below inspired by a gal on the FS Gallery!

I used products for this layout by me, my Beach Kit and from Krystal Hartley's Blooming Happiness Kit (some recolored) and her It's a Family Thing kit. The second layout was done with Krystal's It's A Family Thing kit also.

So, this is me when I was 4 just going on 5. I sent this layout to my mom to verify the info on it and she said that it made her morning. I said, oh why? She said that it brought so many memories of me when I was little, flooding back to her. She said that was my look that said, "Yes I am cute but don't bug me because I can get mad easy!" LOL! Ya don't mess with the Karma!
