I sure don't post here enough!















Well I certainly don't post here enough! Sorry to my followers, I hope you don't feel like I am a waste of space!But anyways, I have some things I want to share with you!
First is the fact that every week my fabulous friend Ashley has a Etsy Inspired challenge. Basically she gives us an Etsy shop to look at and be inspired by. You can make ANYTHING that you want. Cakes, cards, scrapbook pages, etc. I have been participating and I absolutely love it. :) One of the great things is that every week one lucky winner will win a prize from the Etsy Shop that we were all inspired by. Sounds fun huh?? So if you want to play, go check out Ashley's blog http://hearthugsdesigns.blogspot.com So these are the past 2 cards that I made that I was inspired by. She just held a DT and I applied. It is the first DT I have ever applied for, and I have my fingers crossed. If I don't make it, it will be ok because I know Ashley will pick some awesome and talented ladies!

Next is a couple layouts that I made during VSBN (Virtual Scrapbooking Night). It is actually a weekend of challenges over on SCS. It was my first time participating and I absolutely loved it. So the first one we were given a sketch challenge, and I came up with a page that I love and need to add pics too! (ok note!!!!! my pics are not ending up in the order they are supposed to be! I am not sure how to fix it, so I am just going to keep going. If anyone can tell me how to fix it, please leave me a comment letting me know how!)

The second one was 2 challenges that I put into one layout. The first challenge was to distress the layout and putting something you love on it. The second challenge was to use the sketch given, stamp on your page, and to journal. So I came up with the 1 cool dad layout!

And the third challenge I did was to make a layout using bright summer colors. I love these silly pics of Raine. She is such a sweetheart! :)

Today Raine was in the tub, and all the sudden she starts naming all the months of the year in order. I didn't know she knew them, so of course my jaw dropped to the floor! I can't believe she is only 3 and knows them! She makes me so incredibly proud.

Does anyone know how I can make a signature for my name so I don't have to keep typing it? I know all you lovely ladies have some, and I have no idea how to get one! lol thanks!!

Thanks for stopping by, Kristen
