Thank Goodness for LOOONG Weekends!

I am so happy whenever a long weekend rolls around. We are not going anywhere this weekend. Just going to be a quiet weekend at home and I love it! That means every free moment I have I can devote to scrapping. Nap times, bed times, early mornings. I did two layouts last night for Homegrown Summer Survival:

I have also signed up for Got Sketch 102 and can't wait to play! Stashbuster will start next week at Homegrown Scrapbooks in anticipation for Fall Survival - which of course I can't wait for. I am anxiously awaiting my September kits from Studio Calico and Scarlet Lime.

Here is a card I did with Studio Calico's August kit:

Nicholas is being his usual crazy self.......learning so many new things each day. He's ready to be a basketball star!

He already knows how to slam dunk!

I took my camera with me to work last week and walked around on lunch and took a ton of pictures. Here are a few of my favorites...

This is the soon to be finished Trump Tower!

I think that is it for now and will update later today with more layouts!

I am hoping to get even more done today..........

I happen to be very proud of this Summer Survival layout: because i did all the stitchng by hand - by myself :) I love the way it turned out. I love this October Afternoon papers too!

Summer Survival Layout: There is no greater bond than that of a Mother & Daughter!

A close up of all the yummy prettiness.
NO LAUGHING! Yes this is me, I was probably about 11 or 12. I need to add journaling but this is yet another Summer Survival Layout. I can't wait until fall! I am loving this program.

Studio Calico August Confections kit: Shopping for the Perfect Dress. My wedding was butterfly themed so what better layout for the wedding dresses I tried on than .... Butterflies! I adore this kit :)

Okay I think I am up to date now with all the layouts I have done so far. I hope to be adding more soon. I need clean the house, do some laundry and wait for Nicholas to take a nap and then I plan on scrapping!

I feel like I'm on a roll!!!!!!!!!!

I've been scrapping alot more than usual lately and it feels so good! I think it has to do with participating in the Summer Survival Program over at Homegrown Scrapbooks, wanting to participate in challenge blogs and my desire to be on a DT. Plus I have tons of picture stacked up that need scrapping.

ZZ kit: Unconditional love (my grandparents with my son - their one and only great grandchild and their pride and joy).

This is a Summer Survival Layout: You have the most beautiful big brown eyes (this has to be my favorite pic of my son to date)

Another Summer Survival Layout: Sunkissed Baby (my beautiful niece)

I am not sure what kit this was from: Oh so Sweet (my stepdaughter when she was younger)

A card using the Bad Girls July kit.

This was using a Limited Edition Easter kit from A Million Memories: Easter page 1 (my stepdaughter)

Easter page 2:

I will be back later with more! Just have to take some picture and crop but Little Mister is getting hungry so I must tend to him first :)
