Summer Fun 2pg Layout and exciting news!!

Hello everyone, I hope you are having a wonderful day. I'm sorry I haven't gotten to post in a while. Things have been crazy around here. With the Relay for Life in full swing and joining in on a blog hop,( more about that in a minute)I have been super busy. I acutally made this LO  last week and was going to post it. But......I got busy, and before you know it it's already the next week. Boy time sure does fly by!! What happened to the days when we were younger and time seemed to stand still? Those days sure seem like a distant memory :(
        Now about the blog hop...then I will get to the LO. I promise!!  I'm going to be in an Easter Blog Hop on April 7-10 With some very talented ladies. (My first ever! I'm soo excited!!) I hope you will stop by, I have some great stuff planned. You won't want to miss it hehehe.
       I am still wishing for warmer weather to come and stay for a while. It has turned a bit colder here where I am. It was so nice a week ago, now the cold is back. So, I thought I would make a summer themed LO, to try to warm me up a little :)

       These pics were taken when we went on vacation to Carolina and visited a  Water Park that was over there. The kids really had a ball playing in the water and on the slides. (I did mention before that my kids were part fish ..right?)

    I just love Peachy Keen Faces. They make everything adorable even little drops of water LOL.
Hope you liked it. I thought it turned out pretty well. Thanks for stopping by!

Birthday card and challenge

Hello everyone and happy Tuesday to you!! Just a quick note to share with you. I made this card for my baby boy who turned 21 today :( boo hoo boo hoo...It seems like just yesterday I was bringing him home from the hospital.  I made his favorite dinner and cake. (yes, I bribe my kids to come over hehe.)    I decided to make the card to go along with the M. A. G. Challenge by the page
 A pretty simple card, but I think it turned out well. Thanks for stopping by.

Lake layout

Hello again everyone :) I finally got my pics taken and loaded. I am really ready for the warm weather...sooo I thought that making a layout about our favorite activity to do in the summer would be fitting. We love to go to the lake and play and we love to camp. When we combine the two it is awesome. My kids are like fish they looovvvee the water, lol. 
I cut the wakeboard from EDPD and I couldn't find a ski rope so I made my own welding a hanger and hose together in my gypsy.
This was the first time my kids had ever wakeboarded. You would have thought they had been doing it
their whole lives. They were up on the first try. ( Isn't it funny how kids can adapt to anything so quickly!)
Needless to say it took us quite a while to figure out how to do it , LOL.
It was hilarious watching my hubby and his brother trying to get up on the water with the wakeboard....  : p

I'm entering this in  Emma's TBT Challenge . It has to have the color green in it.. I figured that the trees and the grass on my sign would count soo here we go :P
Thanks so much for stopping by and visiting with me !!

(: (: SMILES :) :)

Good Afternoon!!

  I hope everyone is having a great Saturday. The sun is shining here and it is supposed to be warm today! Yaaayyyyy.. I have really missed the warm weather :) Just thought I would write something so that you didn't think I had totally forgotten about my blog.
 I have been really busy with our Relay for Life team at work trying to do a lot of  fundraisers for the Cancer Society.
  We have raised over $2,000 so far. I think that is pretty good..I still have until May so I have a lot planned. (Needless to say I have been feeding all of my co-workers well!!) They told me  the other day that I was going to have to start making diet food, because they were going to gain too much weight from all of the good food they were eating lol.
  I have got a layout to share with you, but I still have to take the pics and upload it. I'll try to get that on here later today.
 Thanks for stopping by and visiting me.
Smiles :)  :)  :)

"Luck O' the Irish"

Hi, everyone. This week I made a card to enter in the TBT challenge over on Emma's blog.
Her challenge for this week was to do something with a St. Patricks Theme. So I decided to do a
shaped card and used my Celebrate with Flourish cart.
I also added some ribbon. Since,  the hat is a little curved I couldn't just wrap the ribbon around
it. I ended up folding the ribbon along the middle section of the hat so that it would curve along with it.
I also used some glittery paper for the clover and some of the other parts of the wording.
I had alot of fun with this card.
 Hop on over to Emma's and try your hand at "going green" lol.
Thanks so much for stopping by,

"Live Life"

Hello friends, I hope you are all having a wonderful day :) It is dreary here, but I'm gonna make the best of it.
This layout was one that I had origanlly started for a couple of challenges. Then I got sick with the flu, and couldn't finish them.  I finally got all the elements and pictures down on the page. I thought I would go ahead and show it.
The challenges were monochramatic scheme.. which I chose to use all blue..( I added a little bit of white to it, since I didn't get to actually enter it.)
And, to use the wild card cartridge, that is where the border on the strip of paper came from. I liked the swirled look. :)
These pictures are of my two daughters and one of their friends when they were at the Amusement Park. They sure were having a good time.
That's it for now, hope you enjoyed my layout.
As always, thanks for stopping by. I love company.
