Bad Weather...

What a horrible stormy day we had yesterday. There were Tornado warnings everywhere but thank god no touch downs! When I went to pick up Will from school it was raining hard with wind gusts at 55 mph. We were both soaked by the time we made it to the car.  I love a good clean rain just as much as everyone else but winds that take the shutters off my house I can do without. Today though the storm clouds are moving out and the sun is starting to peek out so it seems the bad weather is over for now.

Another good thing about today is that Jason will be coming home after 10 days in Brazil. This is the longest we have ever been apart and I am starting to feel like a single mom and don't like it. The kids miss him like crazy too, especially Will he doesn't do well with changes at home and daddy being gone really messes with him.

With Jason being gone I have tried to scrap and have gotten a few things done. It always helps me scrap if I have Challenges or am trying to reach a deadline and last weekend there was an on line crop at A Walk Down Memory Lane . Kristen the old owner of Serendipity is hanging out over there so she invited me to join in on the crop. It was a lot of fun and I did manage to get a couple challenges done.

One of them was to create a Non Halloween layout, you had to create a layout using Halloween paper but non Halloween pictures. I decided to use this picture of Sydney because you can just see the little monster in her in this picture.

That look in here eyes is just a little scary don't you think? She reminds me so much of myself its not even funny.

Well that's it for right now. I have a house to clean before Jason gets home and the cloths drier just started beeping so I need to get the cloths folded, Ugh.....Laundry never seems to end. Thank You for stopping by and I really hope you have an wonderful day.

Everyday life.....

Its been so long since I have blogged. I have thought about it almost everyday but there always seemed to be something else needing done or someone else on the computer. I am sure you all know that feeling. So today I decided I would take at least 10 minutes a day to blog. I think I deserve that much. I also think I was not blogging much because since my mom passed away I just had no desire to create, and for me blogging and creating kinda go hand in hand. Well I am happy to say that I am once again creating! I have learned that scrapbooking can be very therapeutic and healing. I have been playing more on my layouts and trying different things. Getting a little more dirtier, if that was even possible. Here are a couple of my layouts that I have made in the last few weeks.

The picture on this layout is one of my favorites of Jason and Sydney. I love to see my strong Husband turn into the gentle daddy and this picture just captures that perfectly. And this paper by Fancy Pants has to be one of my new favorites. I love the soft colors.

This next Layout is of my baby Sydney. In this picture I can really see the Beautiful little lady that she is growing into but the real fact is that she will always be my baby.

Now what a handsome young man I have. Will is always fast with a smile even if it is his best fake one. He loves being in front of the camera!
I think my 10 minutes is long up. Thanks so much for stopping by and I will see you here tomorrow! Until then be safe and have a great day!
