June 2012 Sneak Peek for TSR!

Hi everyone!
Last day of school for us tomorrow...WOOOHOO!!! It's been a GREAT school year. We have been so blessed with great teachers for our boys this year. I'm so ready to have them home for the summer, though.

Here's my "sneak peek" for the June kit from The Scrap Room. I got to use the Jillibean Soup Neapolitan Bean Bisque part of the kit for my sneak. These colors are so fun! When I saw the little "I love moustaches" sticker in my kit, I KNEW I had to use these photos! Ha! Enjoy, and thanks for stopping by. :)

Baseball Pages

Who loves baseball?? WE DO!!! If we aren't running one of the boys up to the ball field for a game or practice, then we are usually at home watching a game on TV or out in the backyard playing wiffle ball. With 3 guys in this house, it is baseball 24/7 it seems.

I finally scrapped some of last season's pictures for my oldest son. I used an older We R Memory Keepers collection called "MVP." It's PERFECT for all those baseball pics I have!

Thanks for taking a look! PLAY BALL!!!!!!!! :)

A Couple of Extras!

Hey there!

Just uploading a couple of extra layouts I did for The Scrap Room with the leftover pieces I had from using the May 2012 kit. Here they are:

Yes, folks, I realize that the photos I scrapped are from 2009 and 2010....but hey...they are DONE! ;)

Frappuccino Explosion

You know that commercial where the dad and the teen daughter are in the kitchen creating a volcano for a science project, and the mom walks in just as the volcano explodes all over her kitchen? Yeah.....

A while back, my mother-in-law bought me this frappuccino maker for Christmas.

I love it...it's awesome. It makes DELICIOUS frappuccinos. However, I don't use it much because it takes a little bit of time to get everything in the mixer and set it all up, clean it up, etc. So today, I thought to myself, "I'm going to make myself a little treat." You know, just put the ingredients in, push start, and then have a delicious treat. If only it would have gone that easily....

You see, I put the lid on the container backwards. I mean, I have made several frappuccinos with this machine before, so why should I read the instructions? I know what I'm doing, right? Wrong.

At first, the machine acts like a normal coffee maker. It filters the espresso, and the espresso fills up the clear container. Then, the light starts blinking to tell you it's about to start "blending." This machine is awesome, but the blending part of it is super loud and a bit scary....so when the light started blinking, I even said outloud to myself, "Here comes the scary part." Little did I know just how scary that was going to be....

People, it started blending (with the lid on backwards), and there was a frappuccino explosion all over my kitchen. Dripping off my white cabinets, all over my clothes, covering my microwave and other appliances, and all over the floor!!!!!!! I just stood there for a minute, staring at the mess once I had frantically turned the machine off. It was one of those, "What the @#&$ just happened????" moments. You know, when something scary happens and you freeze and just need to take it in for a minute before you know how to react? Yeah, that was me.

Then, I finally came to my senses and started cleaning it all up, laughing at myself and shaking my head the whole time while saying, "I cannot BELIEVE that just happened." After cleaning it up and wiping down the cabinets and walls, all I could think of was, "I really should have taken pictures of that so I could have scrapped it." LOL! True sign of a scrapper, right?

So now I need to go mop my floors really well because they are STICK-AYYYY. The good news is, my house totally smells like Starbucks right now. All I need is to put on some Nora Jones, sit at my laptop while drinking my frapp, and pretend I'm there.

Happy Friday, everyone!

The Scrap Room Full Reveal (May 2012)

Oh man, has it been busy, busy around here! It seems like everything we do is involved around baseball 24/7...but my boys are having a great time and learning a lot, so that's what it's really all about. :)

Even with all the craziness going on, I was able to sit down with my May kit from The Scrap Room and bust out some layouts and cards:

As you can see, I was even able to go back into my ever-growing pile of photos and scrap some baby pictures of my youngest. It feels good to finally get those in an album!

Here's to busy schedules, baseball, and squeezing in scrappy time whenever you can! ;) Thanks for looking.
