Are you ready for Father's Day?

Father's day is just around the corner.

I've been feverishly working on a Father's Day Project called, Mouse, Paper, Scissors, Dad at  It was coming along nicely and then I ran out of ink.  I print on an Epson Stylus R2400 wide format printer at home.

I love having the flexibility of being able to print right away when I'm working on a project... but occasionally I do run out of ink. to the rescue! I was able to order my ink and get it the next day... the next best thing to printing right away.

It is a project that you can finish in one day if you have the supplies (black duct tape, 81/2 x 11 printing paper (glossy or matte) and some of your own journaling) and the time! ;)  I will be finishing up that project, hopefully today, and will share that with you when it's done! Happy Friday!  In the mean time I have created these circle tags, embellishments for you to use as you wish! You can print them right out on whatever paper you choose! (They are in .png format and are measured at 2 inches - perfect to just punch out with your 2 inch punch)! Enjoy! Just click on the link below, right click and save it to your computer!

Spring Concert

Spring concert was yesterday for my little ones at school. Oh so adorable. I do love concert days because these days are the only ones where they are willing to get a bit dressed up without any complaints. So, I, of course, was armed with camera in hand. Ready for those perfect shots of those cherubic smiling faces trying to sing a tune. Well, I was able to get some smiles out of one of my guys and a pseudo-hidden smile from the other. I guess it is better than nothing.

Spring Concerts mark the nearing of the end of the school year. It marks another year done. It means my kids are getting older. It means I'm getting older. It also means that as the school year comes to an end, the summer will begin. It means no rushed, hectic mornings. It means leisurely, unhurried mornings where no one is stressed out or rushing to find last minute things for school. We are all looking forward to a nice, warm, relaxing, fun summer full of memories to be made.  Of course we'll throw in some summer recreational activities, play dates, and swim dates, so as to keep the boredom at bay, but for the most part it will be a fun time to be had by all. There may not be a whole lot of time for scrapbooking, but I'm sure I'll squeeze some in... and what I don't get in, I know I will have lots of photos and stories to tell waiting for me come Fall.  What are your summer plans? Remember, making memories and spending time with family and friends are more important than scrapping them. You'll always have time to scrap, but your kids, family, etc will only be with you for a short while before they grow up and get busy.

We are having a lovely day over in our part of the world, I hope you do too!

I'm Back

Happy June everyone!

Sorry for being away for a week+, but my last post was a little reminder to my family comes first. It has been an extremely busy, hectic week and my little kiddos needed my full attention, nurturing, and love.

I've been consumed with everything digital and scrapbooking the past two months. I guess I'm trying to make up for lost time. I have such a passion for learning. I just have to remember that this information will always be out there. Why do I feel like I am falling behind? Who am I trying to keep up with? I realized that I am trying to keep up with myself. Trying to find a little more balance in my life. I am beginning to find that balance and it feels great!
