What could be better than scrapbooking and turning your online friends into real life friends!!!! I have to admit I'm a little nervous, I hope the like the real life version of me.

I did this layout for the 1 hour sketch contest that was hosted by Kristine at Creative Scrappers last night. It was fun, but a disaster too. The boys were "suppose" to be in, but the both got up twice and DH was out of town so I had to keep running up and putting them back down, lol. Then apparently I dropped my stamp on my photo and didn't even realize it until after I had posted the layout in the gallery. Despite all that this contest was just the therapy I needed to escape from my stressful week at work!

This layout is based on Sketch form Shanna! I was so excited when she posted that sketch, I immediately ran and snatched up those photos. I loved this pictures, even though they aren't the best photos, because of the emotion I felt when I took them. Ahh...why do they have to grow up so fast!

Last Class!

So I taught my last class at my LSS this past weekend, or at least for now. We had some changes in our family and it just wasn't going to work with my schedule anymore! I am sad but I really couldn't justify the time spent away from my family since I already work 30 hours a week

But the good news on the horizon is that I am pretty sure I'll be working from home by the begining of 2009! Yippee!!! Some days, depending on traffic I can spend 3 hours in the car!

Creative Scrappers Design Team Layout

This is the layout I did for my first assignment as a member of Creative Scrappers Design Team. I am currently working on my second layout right now, and I got to say I am really loving it so far!
