Long time no post...

Wow!  I can't believe I haven't posted anything since March!  Life got kind of hectic for me and I didn't have a whole lot of time to scrap, much less post my projects.  Here's a brief overview of what has happened since March.  I found out that I was pregnant with our second child in March; my son had his first birthday in May; the school year ended (I teach 4th grade) and I threw his b-day party just a couple days later;  while my in-laws were visiting for his b-day, we remodeled our bathroom (or should I say my father-in-law remodeled it); we took two family vacations- one to Wisconsin and one to Massachusetts and Maine;  my son started walking (more like running)I directed the kids' summer musical at our church; we found out that baby #2 was a girl;  the next school year started; then our little girl, Laila Grace was born in November.  I'm now staying home with the kids until Feb. 28, then back to work I go. 
Since I've been home, I've been finding a little more time to work on my son's scrapbook and now I'm excited about starting my daughter's book, too!
I'm going to just share with you some photos of things I've done recently.  I know I haven't taken pictures of everything.  I'll go through my son's scrapbook later and take some more photos.  I'll try to remember some of the carts I used on these, but I may not get them all.  So here you go...

I used ZooBalloo on I think all of these cuts.

All Mixed Up for the title, Doodlecharms for the popsicles, and one of the Christmas carts for the penguin- sorry I can't remember which one.

Storybook for title and Stretch Your Imagination on the rest.  I also ran all the eggs through the cuttlebug with different folders.


Paisley again :)  The branch might be from another cart, but I can't remember.  I used my i-Top to make brads for the flower centers.

Designer's Calendar and Cursive 101 for title, From my Kitchen, Sentimentals, Simply Sweet, Gypsy Wanderings, and Doodlecharms

Hello Kitty Font, Stretch Your Imagination, Don Juan

Printing Press, Paper Pups, Locker Talk

Cuttin' Up and Everyday Paper Dolls for all 4 of these...

Card for my friend's baby shower:  Create a Critter

Birthday Bash- one of my new favorites!!

Create a Critter and Simply Charmed- 2 of my other faves!!!!

Birthday Card:  Simply Charmed, Don Juan, and All Mixed Up
That's all I have for now.  I'm in the middle of making two other LOs, so hopefully, I'll have them on here soon.  Thanks for stopping by!

Yay! I'm so glad you're "back". I came across your blog a while ago and absolutely LOVE the layouts you create. They definitely motivate me to try to stay-up-to-date on my own kids scrapbooks. Also, it's interesting that we have a few things in common - I was a 3rd grade teacher (although now I'm staying home with the kids) and my kids are also 1 1/2 yrs apart in age. It's busy, but definitely worth it! Looking forward to seeing the other layouts you create!
