Sledding layout (based off an ad)

So for the crops I did a layout based off an ad. I chose this gap ad. I love a lot of things about this ad. I originally wanted to do a summer layout with the white background, but couldnt find any pictures that worked well.

Heres what I came up with. It was fun to do.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!

Where Ive been lately

Today I noticed that I have over 10,000 hits on my blog...that just amazes me!! So I thought I would update whats been taking all my time lately. I have four boys and they all like to play sports. This year three of them decided to play city league basketball and my oldest decided to wrestle. So now, every night I have a sport for one of them...its keeping me busy. Here are some pics from this past week.

This is Tyler in his last Saturday game. He played so awesome...he made at least 5 baskets and had at least 3 steals. Sometimes I miss some of the action trying to get a picture, but it was a fun game to watch. He was on fire. (hes the one in the blue jersey and he just shot the ball)

I missed half of the twins' game due to it slightly overlapping Tyler's game, plus it was team picture day. Jeff went with the twins to their game. They won and my friend told me they made all the baskets they shot for. This is Cole shooting. (#24)

and here is Carson shooting. (#13) They won their game and it was lots of fun.

Brady decided to wrestle this year and has won all but one match. He actually won this match and I wanted to take a picture when they raised his hand up as the winner, but the ref. messed up and raised the other kids hand and took away my photo moment LOL.. Brady is the one with 10 points on the scoreboard. Brady also plays church basketball, but I dont have any photos of that.

On a scrapbook note, I will be part of two crops over superbowl weekend. There is one at Simply Obsessed. The challenges are going to be so much fun and there will be lots to do. I will also be involved in a crop at Treasures To Scrap. There will be challenges there as well. I believe both sites will have prizes so come check them out. They start Friday January 30 and go through Sunday February 1st!

Thanks for stopping by!

Winter Fun

I just uploaded a 2 page layout for TTS. I purchased everything but the date stamp from TTS. Sorry the pictures arent better, its overcast and Im having a hard time getting a good picture. The lettering is glittery and I put stickles on the snowflakes to make them glittery. This is from the other day when I took the kids sledding. I also used a sketch by Becky Fleck.

This is the first page

This is the second page.

As always, thanks for stopping by!

Scrapbook Trends December 2008 issue

My son just told me a package arrived at the door. I hadnt ordered anything and so ran to see what it was, and it was from Scrapbook Trends. I had almost forgotten I had a package coming. I am in the December issue. It is the last thing I have submitted...guess Id better get back on the ball and start submitting again.

The editor mentioned me in the Note from the Editor at the front of the book. That was exciting to see (click on it to make it bigger). Its even more exciting because this was my first pub with S.T. YAY!

Thanks for letting me share!

The boys had their cousin stay overnight and we wanted to make sure we did something fun while he was here, so we went sledding today. Brady brought his friend Kyle along too. It was super icy and it was hard to walk back up the hill, but they had a fun time. Heres a group picture of them. I took lots of pictures today but none are great. Ill have to take them again and take more pics. Hope you had a great day!
