Softball season is over!! Yipee!! It was really fantastic. The girls improved so much and the coaches commented many many times tonight at the party, how amazed they are that this is their first year. They're just going to get better too. Daddy already has a game plan for the summer to improve some technique. And baseball is something he knows... the girls are really excited :) Here's Rae's most improved trophy...

But like I said, I'm so glad that the season is over. Hoping to get Tuesday Taco night started again with the grandparents. Hoping to get some more scrap LO's done. Hoping to maybe even do a little better with this blog :) We'll see.

It's a Happy Happy Day!! FREEBIE alert!!

Hey hey Scrappers!! Happy [inter]National Scrapbook Day!! So glad you're traveling with us today :)

You should have just come from Christy's blog: and after me will head onto Natasha's blog: Are you loving the goodies you've collected so far? Well there's more... so don't stop now.

Let me tell you a little about my neck of the woods. I live in beautiful Northern California and one of the most impressive tourists spots we are known for is gorgeous Lake Tahoe. Take a look...

Seriously beautiful.... any time of year. Great places to snow ski, wonderful beaches for swimming and boating and even some casinos at the state line... just for fun, of course ;) So although I would REALLY like to go to Hawaii someday, I'm pretty happy living just over an hour from this little corner of paradise.

Now onto what I know you came for... your freebie.

Boo-hoo... I didn't make it onto round 4 of the ScrapMatters Design Star Challenge. But oh my gosh!!! Have I learned sooooo much these last few weeks. I will definitely keep up the designing.

happy accident

I am scheduled to post this of my photo blog tomorrow and accidentally posted it here. Thought I'd keep it just in case anyone wanted to see what I did yesterday :)

So this little guy tends to spur my creativity. Maybe he needs to come over more often :) Unlike my kids, he's a very willing model too.

Scary fun!!

So there's this contest going on at ScrapMatters... it's a Design Star challenge. It's an incredible opportunity! Contestants chosen will get to work with and be mentored by a Designer from SM and then get to start selling in the store. I'm jumping in and I am soooooo nervous!! I always figured I'd take the next step into designing, I just didn't know I'd feel so unqualified. Anyway, anyone interested should really go check out the thread. There are so many awesome details.

There's also another daytime Speed Scrap in the morning. GO HERE for details. It's 8:30 am my time so if I come straight home after I take the kids to school, I can make it. Heather has some really cool brackets up for the participation prize. I'm gonna do my best.

If you haven't been to ScrapMatter's lately, go check it out. It's growing by leaps and bounds and has a ton of awesome challenges always going on. Here's the LINK. Hope to see you there.

Speed Scraps

Well, I feel like I hardly have time to update and I will get better about that, I promise. Just getting used to being a working mom... I've never been that before :)

I am hosting a Speed Scrap this next week though and I'm so excited!

And I snagged this really cool alpha from Sya. I love it and see myself using it over and over.

Denise is hosting one on Tuesday night too.

I'm going to try my best to be at hers. Tuesday is our weekly family (with Grandmas & Grandpas too) dinner and we usually don't start eating till six. But sometimes I can squeeze one out at the end. If the instructions are easy enough :) Hope to see you there!

And another one

There's another speed scrap this week.

Although I won't be able to attend this one :( My friend, Alamama is hosting too. Go get 'em Christine!!
And actually, there are a couple speed scraps each week. I just haven't been doing a good job of posting the announcements. I'll do better, I promise. So, come to these speed scraps and you'll be able to say you've gotten at least 2 LO's done this week :) See you tonight!!
