You know you're addicted to scrapbooking when...

I have to share this because only fellow scrappers would get it :) Mike was sitting at the computer last night and turned around and saw my big CTMH bag by the door. He announced that he was rolling his eyes, in case I couldn't see. He told me that he didn't know which was worse, that I was taking that huge bag on vacation with us or that it was the ONLY bag packed and ready to go. He should know my priorities by now--LOL!

This crazy summer...

These last couple weeks have been crazy! After we got back from Las Vegas, Austin started swim lessons. Sadly, Brendan was on the wait list and didn't get in, so he and I just have to sit for a half an hour every day staring longingly at the pool. He's been pretty good about it, but it's still sad. By the time we finish lessons, play at the park and run errands it's lunch and nap time. I am just exhausted.

Saturday we are leaving to go up to Idaho, so things are pretty crazy trying to get things cleaned and packed. We decided to go camping for part of the time we're up there, so we need to pack our regular stuff, camping stuff, toys and of course scrapping stuff. Good thing we bought the van! I just hope the boys will be good on the drive. We're going to try and do all 14 hours in one day. Pray that we get there safely and still sane :)

I can't wait to get up there. My mom and I have big plans for scrapping and manicures (shhh don't tell Mike!). They just opened an Archivers up there in Boise, so that's definitely on my list. As for Mike and I, we have plans for a few date nights while Grandma has the kiddos. Seeing Harry Potter is definitely on that list. Oh and of course reading it. My copy is being sent to my mom's house, but I'm seriously thinking of going to get a second copy at midnight tomorrow night so I can have it for the drive--LOL!

A few cards

Here are some cards I've been working on for a friend of mine who owns an antique booth. She wanted some rose cards for her booth. I've been working on quite a few things lately, but haven't had a chance to take pictures :)

Even though the fireworks we went to last Saturday were a bust, we had a blast. How could you not? Look how beautiful the scenery is--can't wait to scrap all of our fun!

Some pages Ive been working on

Mike took Austin swimming while Brendan was taking a nap, so I finally had some time to scrap :) These pages are all using CTMH Floral Tapestry paper and Stickease. I love the way they turned out. I was trying to do double duty planning an upcoming workshop and participating in a couple of scrapbooking challenges
This page is in response to a challenge to do a page about your dreams and include a song title--I used "My Wish" by Rascal Flatts
This was a page about me and my sisters--I used words from the song "My Sister" by Reba McEntyre. The blank spot is where I want to add one more picture of us when we were little. I couldn't find one, so I'll wait until I go to my mom's and steal one of her--LOL
This last one is a layout from the photo session we did last month. They are the first family photos we've taken in 12+ years
