3 from Scrapsketch

I did these 3 last night, and did not have time to take the picture during the day so they are a little blurry.
These are from the kids trip to Ringling Museum in Sarasota. It is an art museum and circus. It also has beautiful gardens.

I went back to Work Full Time

I can't say yet if I like it or not, I do love being out of the house and having adult conversation, but I sure miss picking up my little girl everyday. And having breakfast with my Monica and her friend before they left to school. The boys I still see the same amount of time I did when I was home.

My wonderful beautiful sister and best friend picks her up for me and take her to her house until the boy pick her up around 4:00 then the 4 sometimes 3 of them are home alone until Stan and I get home around 5:30 - 6:00pm. Daniel's chore is to start dinner, Monica's chore is to make sure nothing happens to Natalie and play with Natalie and Tyler's chore is to pick everyone up. The 3 older ones have to make sure there are no dirty dishes in the sink, counter and keep the house in the same manner in which it was when we left in the morning. So far so good but is only the 2nd day.

Is funny I'm working with DH and we have to pretend we don't know each other because they don't like relatives to work together although there are plenty of them, so we look like lovers getting little glances here and there is too funny. I love that man I tell ya. He checks up on me a few times during the day but does not say anything just this wonderful look. I love what is happening to our relationship at least until we get home and have to deal with Teenagers again.

My scrapping time is so limited but I'm going to make my Friday nights a late night and scrap until my eyes can't see any more.

Will update you all soon. Have a wonderful week.

Two New LO

I love day's like today, I did laundry 6 loads so far, cleaned, play with the girls, took my daily 40 minute walk, made dinner and scrapped, my kind of day. I still am full of energy it must of been the 2 cups of Arab coffee I had this afternoon.

Oh and a card and I never do cards.

Now I'm going to show my Darling Son Daniel what a clean room looks like for the 100th time.

Have a wonderful evening and a great Sunday I hope I can scrap tomorrow after we come back from church.


Chris Olsen at Twinkles glow with Stamps is having this amazing blog candy go check it out it ends October 30th.

Explore ***Practical Scraper Challenge**

I did this for the practical scrapper challenge this week. We needed to use those old rusty decorative edge scissors, Well I used them on the photo mat and the pp. I like how it looks with the distress ink.

Ringling Museum

My kids and mom went to the museum while I met some great friends from Scrappinmojo.

This one took a while because of the swirl but I do really love how it turned out. Sometime I guess I need to take the extra time, even if I want to do everything fast.
I love this picture of the 3 kids, it was taken at Ringling's museum in Sarasota, FL. this summer.

"IF" To My Son ***Scrap That Poetry Challenge and Frosted Design CHallenge***

I did this for scrap that poetry
and Frosted Design
The second I read this poem I knew I wanted to scrap it with this picture.
Thanks for the challenge. The flourishes just came naturally.

I painted the swirls then added glitter while the paint was still wet, used the heat gun to set. The stars I painted then embossed them and added Glimmer mist tap the excess of used the heat gun to set.


I love my little pooch and never scrap him because with the 4 kids I think I have plenty to scrap, I did this for a challenge over at ScrappinMojo.
