Got my fingers dirty

I made time for me today. Something i seem to be forgetting to do lately. Im not sure why I dont set this time aside for me, but I dont. After today I remember why I love and need this time. I am going to set time to scrap and make cards for 1 hours once a week. Now i know you are thinking one hour is not much but to me to see 1 hour of free time in my day and get the chance to scrap would be oh so nice. plus we all know that once you are in your scraproom / cave / nook and working away, we neverreally want to stop. Today I made a card for a challenge on a great blog. This blog is called Digi Haven it can be found here... They use digital images that you print from home in place of stamps and make cards with them. These girls are really good at what they do. i would love for you all to join in the fun too. here is the card i made. the image is from ___________ gotta find her name going to update in a little while.

Summer is just about here. My girls have a week left in school and then it's vacation time. I am so looking forward to being able to just scrap anytime I want. Right now it is hard because all my scrap stuff is in my basement and I can't bring it up because i run a daycare and do not want my daycare kids to get into it all during the day. Now that its summer (I close my home daycare during the summer) I am able to get my scrap on. I just posted this months contest and challenge I hope you all can join in the fun.

What a great month!

It's official... I am back scrapbooking. It only took my youngest to turn two so that I could find the time but I'm back. I had the best time the beginning of the month in Maine. I went to point sebago for a scrapbooking retreat. I used to go every year Now that my little one is old enough I was ale to go back. It was a wonderful time and I got the chance to see some of my great online friends from northwest scrapbook friends. If you live in the northeast part of the US you should Deffinely look us up and join in the fun. My friend Laura got to come along with me. We had a last. We got there around 2:00 Friday afternoon and stayed there until Sunday around 12:00. I was able to get 14 layouts done and 9 cards. Felt so good to be ale to just sit and scrap and not worry about what the kids were doing what I was going to cook. To just sit and scrap. Ahhhhh Anyway I am already registered to go back next year. Although this time we are going to arrive on Thursday instead of Friday. Another whole day to scrap woohoo. I have lots planed for my blog so be on the look out starting in June. Happy scrapping...
