Challenge Catch-up

Hey all! The following idea was brought to us by our good friend and loyal customer, Nicole.

Let's play catch-up the next two weeks. I'm not going to post a new prompt on Sunday for the challenge. Both Sarah and I are going to be out of town for the holiday weekend. We are assisting in opening up the family cabin for the summer! So...use the next two weeks to catch up on our challenge prompts. Or join us if you haven't started yet. It's never to late!

Have a great holiday weekend. I feel the wind coming from the lake already!

Could it be?

Could it be almost summer? Just took Jack for a little walk and it is so nice out today. It's clear and sunny and makes me really look forward to the holiday weekend at the cabin. Should be lot's of fun. Look at the cherry blossoms caught on camera.

Wishing each and everyone of you a great day and a great weekend.

Random post...

I should be working on my layout for this week's challenge, but thought of something else to post about instead. ok, I admit it I love to watch American Idol. I am totally into it FOR SURE because my man, David Cook is in the finale! Yes, something about him is amazing. When he sings, there is true emotion in it. I've cried a few times. Yes, it's sad, but oh so true!

Ok totally random (and not scrapbooking related AT ALL), but that has been my thought today....

Happy Birthday to Matthew!

My little Matthew turned 6 years old today. We had a fun filled day. He was exhausted by the time we got home.

~He brought cupcakes for his friends in his kindergarten class today.
~We went to lunch at Noodles and Company (one of his favorites) with daddy.
~We went to play at the park by daddy's work.
~Daddy met us at the park and then we headed to Como Zoo
~They saw the animals, rode some rides, and walked a lot. The gorillas were Matthew's favorite.
~Went to dinner with Auntie Sarah and Uncle Todd. Matthew had his name announced to the restaurant. He thought that was pretty cool.
~Ended the night with reading two books and off to bed. A big hug and kiss before bed for this big boy of mine.

It's hard to believe he is 6 years old. Seems like time just flies by. He is so very proud of being 6 though. So Happy Birthday bud! I had a great time with you today.

P.S. see post below for our prompt this week!

National Scrapbooking Day give away...

National Scrapbooking Day is tomorrow. It's a day (or weekend) to celebrate this hobby that we are involved in. Scrapbooking has brought so much into my life. I have met wonderful friends, treasured many memories, and even opened a small business with one of my greatest friends.

In honor of this special weekend, we are going to give away a gift package. It will be a secret what the package will have in it, but I know it will have paper and embellishments. Hmmm, no surprise there!

My favorite subjects to scrapbook are of course my two boys. They have brought such joy to my life. I want them to see when they get older, what I saw as they were growing up. Who they are, what they mean to me, etc. I scrapbook because of them, for them. In honor of NSD, post what your favorite subject is to scrapbook. away. We will draw a name on Monday morning.


p.s. sale at scraploft through May 10th. 30% off your entire purchase Just enter NSD in the box on the view cart page.
