oodles of FUN news!

I wanted to share some exciting news! The clear album that is in my last post is going to be published in SCRAPBOOK TRENDS magazine, December issue! You can't imagine how excited I was to read the email where they requested it. TOO much fun! It just makes me want to do another one. They are really fun to do. I highly recommend them!
More exciting news! There is a HUGE sale going on at I couldn't believe all the amazing things that were being discounted. You will NOT want to miss out on this, especially if you love Basic Grey, 3Bugs in a Rug and Dream Street papers! 40% off! What a deal! This is where to find it:

Here is a LO that I was able to make with their July kit. It's got such pretty paper in it!

One more piece of some very great news! An update on the Showdown at the playground! I have made it to the next round again! The competition has moved from 34 down to 5 players. I can't post any of my LO's on the online galleries yet, but I can show them here. So, here are a few that have got me where I am at.

JULY CROP at 2scrappychixdesigns!!!!!!!

TODAY is the DAY!!! It's the first day of the July crop at I just posted my first challenge to everyone. It is to complete this cute card using a tranceparency ( this is all the rage right now!) I thought I'd post a photo of it. This great design was inspired by my friend Nancy at scrap4life. She always comes up with such BEAUTIFUL work!

Soon I will be uploading the next challenge which is a sketch challenge. Those who complete both challenges by Sunday 5 pm est, will have a chance at winning a RAK.

This is a LO I did using the BF sketch that will be posted. It's of Ashley in the middle of her first T-ball season when they suddenly decided to call 3 strikes your out! And 3 outs and you are off to the out field! Poor lil' guys. It was so confusing to them because they were just used to being able to hit until they got the ball and they went all the way through the batting order. So, here my doll is right after her first strike out. My heart broke but she was so strong. She didn't even act upset, which made me so proud. I could see the hurt in her face though and I wanted to document it. So, that's why I took this photo!

Come joine us at for a fun weekend crop full of RAK's and prizes!!

What a wedding!! My husband's cousin Peter got married to a gorgeous bride named Liz on Saturday. Arte officiated the wedding and it turned out so beautiful and so very elegant! I've just been dying to show these photos that I took! This is the most gorgeous couple. I could have snapped pictures all day long and nearly did. I tried, however, to stay out of the way of the professional photograhper!

My daughters were in 'awe' over the 'barbie princess.' I had to pry Kelsey out of her arms at one time during the reception. Then at the gift opening she sat right in between them to help them open their gifts! It's a good thing that Liz obviously loves children and seemed to take a liking to Kelsey. If Kelsey has any say in it... they are friends for life now! LOL! This was our first time to meet and get to know Liz. What a sweetie she is! Isn't she just a doll? Her and Pete are both very blessed to have each other. I also found out she is a scrapbooker! Wahoo!!!
I tried most of the day to get a shot of Ashley in her sweet hat. She's been waiting all spring to be able to wear this to the wedding. Then of course, she took it off when she got there! Right at the end she put it on and even smiled for the camera which was shocking considering how tired she was!

The wedding was a gorgeous Resort in Washington, that had this amazing waterfall. It was just breathtaking and I was so glad we took the time to hike down a little ways to see it.

The next day, there was a gift opening at Pete and Liz's place. The have done such an incredible job decorating and remodeling. WOW! That was fun to see. And of course,here is kelsey, in the middle of it all, sitting on Liz's lap!

I'm having trouble uploading these photos but I will try again in a bit. The kids are learning how to scuba dive. Can't miss that!
