Monday Monday

I can't believe it is Monday already, I really didn't want to go to work this morning.  I am still wishing I could get around having that daytime job.  Maybe one day soon I can do this full time!!
We had another birthday celebration this weekend. Mike's daughter turned 11 and  her brother turned 13! I always have plenty of girlie cards laying around but I am still short on male cards. And 13 is at that in between age where I can't make a cute kid card.  So Mike told me to use the pirate ship. I do love this stamp set and use it often!

Thanks for stopping by ~ Shelley

Scrap it with a Song - Every Girl Like Me

Hi!! I have another My Digital Studio page to share with you for Scrap it With a Song's new challenge. This week it is Every Girl Like Me by Sugarland.  I have been wanting to scarp some of our 4th of July pictures and saw the work firecracker in the lyrics and thought I should run with it!

We have such  great time letting off fireworks this year. 
The kids really loved it. 

I used the sketch at Creative Scrappers

You have until July 31st to join us for our July challenges. We can't wait to see what you come up with!!

Have a great day ~ Shelley

Hi! Another busy week, I'm so glad it's almost Friday! And this Saturday my sisters are throwing me a bridal shower!!
I took some time out this evening to make a couple cards for some ladies I work with, they have had a rough couple weeks with lots of changes going on. 

This was the first time I got to use my new stamp set Mixed Bunch and the blossom punch! I just love this flower!

Have a great day ~ Shelley

Hi! I took a little time out today to smash in my new smash book. I love notebooks of all kinds and these books are a lot of fun. And I got a lot of wedding stuff finished this weekend too. I can't wait until I have it all done.  Plus I went to Michael's today and only spent my money on wedding stuff. That was a big accomplishment for me, but it sucked not buying the other stuff I really wanted. lol

Have a great day ~ Shelley

Scrap it with a Song - American Girl

Hi! Scrap it with a Song's new challenge today

I used  the lyrics "Take it easy, Baby" for my title.  I just added a few words to fit the picture. This is my son Larz, holding his baby cousin. He was so scared to hold her! The picture is priceless! I used the layout from  Frosted Designs and created my page in My Digital Studio.   I can't wait until I have more time to create pages and crafts. My wedding is a little over a month away and I feel I have so much to do!! I am in panic mode. lol Of course then I will have tons more pictures that I want to scrap!

You have until July 31 to join us for the challenge. We love to see your creations!

Have a great day ~ Shelley

A long weekend....

I always wish that the weekends would slow down and this weekend certainly has. The electric went out Friday evening with a massive storm that left thousands on the east coast without power. Trees are down everywhere. Electric is still not on for me, but thankfully we have a generator to run the essentials. And the wonderful electric company is out in front of our house now. Says it should only be 4 more hours!! 
I can't believe the size of the trees the storm brought down. Here are a couple pictures a co-worker shared that is right down the street from him in Beckley, WV.

I can't believe how it tore the ground up! Thankfully all were safe here. I haven't heard of any deaths or injuries.

I dd work on a few things this weekend until the heat was too much that I didn't really feel like moving. Crazy how much we need AC to function. It was a 100 degrees!! And felt much worse indoors than out. 

These are going to be my ring bearer boxes. I have so many nephews I decided to have two ring bearers. After I put the antique varnish on these they looked terrible! So I put more turquoise paint on top and really like the finished look. 

Hope everyone had a great weekend! Shelley
