She Does the One Arm Chicken Dance

Not much time to chat tonight. We were busy with camp, the park, the car place, the garbage cans (don't ask), soccer practice x 2, and survival today. Here's the first half of the mini I made for All About Scrapbooks. I'll post the second half tomorrow. I need to get off this dang 'puter and journal it, so I can drop it off in the morn. Hope you like it. Love how the mix of KI's Juicy and Cosmo Cricket's Snorkel and Sass (of course) turned out. Thanks for stopping!

Wanna REALLY Big Peek?

Shh. Don't tell. Kristen is swamped with preparing for CHA in Orlando next week. She's been way too busy to post a peek of August's kit. Well, I thought I'd do you one better and show you the whole shebang. Yep, that's brand-spankin new BG June Bug. wink.

Before My Eyes

Does anyone else find it weird that this is not the first time I've posted a picture of food on here?!? I just had to capture the fact that my ketchup-obsessed daughter (you know the kind... the kid who drags three fingers through her ketchup as she dips her fries, sausage, or anything else that passes her lips) did NOT add ketchup to tonight's meal. Yep, my homemade meatloaf (lowfat, mind you) and bakers passed the 5 star test. ALL five kiddos went to town. Ahh, my work here is done. I can serve this daily, right?

Not sure if these pictures do this 2-pager justice. I'm lovin this swiss dot paper from Bazzill recently. Plus, it's yellow, which I've also been into recently. Had to document these days while the twins were in the hospital and their room sat empty for an entire month. We just were not complete. All I wanted was my whole family together.


Well, here I am eating just baked chocolate cookies and blogging when I should be scrapping. I've got a darn cute Maya Road mini (the one with the chipboard and envelopes) that I'm working on for my LSS. AND, August's Mosh Posh kit filled with June Bug goodness is going out in tomorrow's mail. So, I've got scrappin to do. But, I thought I would take a break, and share with you some recent pictures and scrappy stuff.

On Monday, I had the chance to meet up with Estee. I'm on the design team with her at Mosh Posh and she does some other really cool stuff with and GCD Studios. But, mostly I just dig her. She's very down to earth and funny as all get out. Plus, her kids are adorable. She was in town visiting her folks so we did the park thing with our kiddos. So fun!

I've been burning the midnight oil these last couple weeks... Til next time.

Playing Ketchup with Mosh Posh

I've been soo bad about posting my mosh posh stuff here. So, I'll show you what I've done both this month and last month. July's kit is still available here. But you should hurry because June's kit sold out super fast.

First up is June. Filled with the brand spankin new Cosmo Cricket Early Bird. Loved all of it. For this one hancut a bunch of those big retro flowers. Raised some of them with popdots and left others swinging free for even more dimension.

For this one, I just had to make something with a little quilt look. These papers just scream Sew with Me!"

Just a quickie card with kraft cardstock, those great Lily Bee rub-ons and some scallops.

Some little flowers along the bottom and the Lily Bee rub-ons again. They were perfect for these shots of Reagan running away from me as I tried to take his picture.

A rare 2-pager from me. Really happy how this turned out. Wish they all flowed this easy.

Another quick card from me. If I let myself, I would colorblock all my cards. So easy.

Like the tag here for this card. And that JB button with the flower.

Next up is the July kit featuring the much anticipated Cherry hill form October Afternoon.
Went a little free form with this one...Used some rub-ons on the butterfly and the ribbon.

Just an easy one with my little cuties. Love those OA labels here.

Not so sure about this one, but I love getting this documented. You can't love all your stuff all the time.

This picture cracks me up! The 2 birdie paper is perfect for the twinnies.

That's it for now. Be back soon with some sneaks of what I've been up to.

Don't Go Bowling in Franklin with Snacks for your Babies

Red letter weekend for my crew, that's for sure. We started the weekend early by going to Cow Appreciation Day at Chik-fil-a Friday. For those of you not lucky enough to live near one.. na na na na nah! This place is the greatest fast food on the planet. The deal was if you dressed like a cow from head to toe you got a free meal. Any excuse to go there all week long to pick up the costume "parts" By the time Friday rolled around, all the "Bigs" wanted to dress up. So, I downloaded extra "parts" and we put together costumes for the "Bigs" and me and mini signboards for the twinnies. We had a blast with the jolly jump, face painting, bubbles, sidewalk chalk, and balloon animals. As you can see.
Saturday was Cub Scouts at the bowling alley in Franklin. We.will.not.return. Who ever heard of such a strict "No Outside Food Policy" that they would not allow the babies to eat their snacks?!??!? So, I allowed the twinnies to scream in hunger until I could get the crew out of there before we headed for the Wendy's drive thru to feed my starving wee ones. Ugh!!!

Sunday was a birthday pool party. My head was on a swivel as I watched the babies ramble around the backyard while the "Bigs" scrambled between the pool and the waterslide. I was exhausted ! After that it was off to the grocery with sun and water soaked kids to gear up for camp today. Got hit by a horrible storm as soon as we returned. Double ugh. We lucked out in the damage compared to many neighbors.

Today was Y Camp for P.J. and Julia. The rest of us met up with Estee, her mom, and her kiddos at the park. I "know" Estee from Mosh Posh. So cool to meet up irl while she was in town visiting her folks.

Been scrappin like a fool, but no pix to share quite yet. Later this week for sure. For a scrappy peek, I DO have some pixs of that Maya Road grab box I bought last week.

I'm audi. Thanks for stopping.
