Scrappy Sunday 9/30/12

Just sharing a page I did recently of my little guy at the beach this past summer. His favorite thing to do was jumping the waves! :)
I love this collection by Fancy Pants! It's their "Wave Searcher" collection...perfect for my beach pics, and more layouts using this collection are coming up. ;) Thanks for taking a look!

Quick page share. It's almost time for me to go pick up the boys from school, but I thought I'd post my latest baseball page. This year, my youngest son FINALLY got to play on a real "team." He has watched his older brother play on teams for so many years, and he was SOOOO excited to finally get to play on a team of his own.
(paper by Deja Views, stickers by Echo Park) His best buddy was also on his team this year, which made it even more fun. :) Speaking of baseball....we just got back late last night from my oldest son's traveling team tournament all weekend long. We are all still exhausted, and I have a ton of dirty laundry to wash (and somehow need to get baseball field dirt and grass stains out of WHITE pants????)...but it was a fun weekend. Our boys came in 4th place out of 12 teams. These were all big city elite teams, too, making us the only "small town" team there, so I am so proud of our guys for hanging with the big dogs and giving it their all. :) Better throw the laundry into the dryer and head out to pick up boys...thanks for looking!

First Six Weeks Awards

Hello friends!
Just sharing another 2-pager I did for The Scrap Room using the September kit. This kit had me thinking SCHOOL TIME!, so I put together this page about my oldest son when he was in 2nd grade. I've wanted to scrap this page for a long time and include all of his little ribbons/awards that he received. I have some of these ribbons from when I was in grade school, and I know that eventually they turn colors and fade.

So, before I put these on his page, I sprayed them with some Krylon "Make It Last!" acid-free spray...so hopefully it will preserve them for a long time. :)

You Make Me Happy

Just sharing another page I did for the September kit from The Scrap Room!

They really do make me happy. In fact, the little guy and I were playing in his bedroom floor earlier this afternoon, and I'm pretty sure we both laughed until our stomachs hurt. :)

TSR Reveal Week for September Kits!

Hey all!
Over the next several days, I will be sharing my projects I've done using The Scrap Room's September kit. This kit is one of my favorites from the whole year! Tammy really put a nice selection of new, fun products in this one, as she does every month.

For my "sneak peek" layout, I was assigned the Basic Grey "Clippings" part of the kit. It was perfect for my youngest son's preschool picture from 2011:

Love that little sly grin on his cute face. :)

Thanks for taking a look!

(By the way, BARBARA was the winner of my Wall Art giveaway. Barbara - I need to hear from you ASAP to claim your prize. Thanks!)
