My Little Cooper Bear

It's been a while since I last posted a project... thought you might like to see my new project that just went up in the 2peas garden...

As usual--the garden is FULL of some wonderful inspiration. It's the perfect place to stop by if you are needing a little motivation--like I've been needing lately!

It's the spookiest time of the year!

I just love the week before Halloween! We're doing all sorts of creepy things around our house! We've made caramel apples, read all of our Halloween books, went to a Halloween party, and bought our favorite Halloween cereal!  I'm going to be sad when it's all over.. but at least we have Christmas to look forward to!

I have some creepy cards for you today. I made this card set for the 2peas garden. I mostly used the Echo Park Apothecary Emporium paper collection. Find more information on them here.

Have a fantastic day!

If you have boys than you know how they are--everything becomes a weapon of sorts. I saw Logan even chew down his toast until it was gun shaped. haha And Landen's new obsession is Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. A fun throw back to when I was little. I remember my brothers jumping off the couch with their foam Knumchucks and screaming "Cowabunga!" It makes me happy that Landen is having the same experience! I'm hoping to get him some really cool TMNT stuff online for Christmas!

I have a couple fun cards for you today--

And if you haven't noticed... I've filled up my ETSY shop with a TON of handmade cards. I'm swamped with them here and need to get rid of some. So I'm selling them for almost nothing! They are $1-$2 a card--go check it out!

Have a fantastic Day!

viA video for you...

I was in charge of the Finally Friday video last week--I have a fun little trick up my sleeve involving paper flowers and some copic markers! :) You can go over to the 2peas garden and check it out! While you are there, snoop around at all the other Garden Girl's projects--stunning! I seriously can't believe I get to work with such talented women!


Thanks for stopping by!

Did you think I forgot about my poor blog? Well, a little--I've been working on something BIG! Don't worry, I'll let you know what it is in about a month...

But since I posted last I've been having some fun with my kiddos! And since it's my FAVORITE time of year--we've been doing lots of Halloween fun stuff. One of our yearly traditions is going to the pumpkin patch--here's some cute pics of my sweet boys at the patch:

 Hope you are having a wonderful October! ;)

Finding lost minutes

I'd been frustrated the last couple of days because I just don't have enough time to do everything I want to do. If I spend too much time scrapbooking then I feel guilty about not spending that time with my kids and I'm not getting my house as clean as I want, I just felt kind of bogged down. So Brandon brought home a book for me called Time! it's just a small little book, but it's got a ton of tips on how to manage your time more efficiently. Today--I'm following a schedule and I feel so much better! I can see how much time I was wasting on little things like PINTEREST, checking my email too often, and watching TV.

Do any of you follow a schedule every day?

So I have a couple projects to share today.... Here's my cameo card set I did for 2peas:

Bright and colorful-just how I like them! I'm just in love with those fun cameo's by Maya Road--super cool!

Thanks for stopping by everyone! :)

I can't believe it....

 I made the Doodlebug Design team! Along with some other amazing girls! I seriously didn't think I even stood a chance--super shocked!

Wanna see what I submitted? Here's my Doodlebug Projects I sent in:

You can read all sorts of fun facts about all the designers over on the Doodlebug Blog. I think it's so fun to read all those random facts about people!

Hope you have a creative day! :)

I have one project to share with you today.... here's my Swim Party layout I did for the Designer Garden over at 2Peas. 

Hope you all are enjoying the last few days of summer. It's raining here--I've put a big pot of Vegetable Beef soup on the stove and I'm going to whip up a batch of homemade rolls. I even put on my new winter cardigan--lovin' it! Winter is definitely coming!

Have a wonderful day!

I'm a list person

Are you? I have everything I need to do on a large, large list. I write down everything--doesn't mean anything gets done though! haha And Pinterest is the perfect place to find people who love lists like me! I've been finding all kinds of planners, printables, etc. Pinterest is seriously addicting. Are you on there?

So I finally have some stuff to show you...

Here's a layout I did for 2peas Design School class. My Design rule was Emphasis. I chose to emphasis my title--on the left.
And some exciting news--they've asked me and a couple other GG's to fill in for Kristina's Finally Friday videos. This was my first one--it's not that great. But I'm sure I'll get a lot better. Check it out  here.

And just a fun card I made!

And I'm due for another giveaway! Who wants to win the fabulous Victoria Garden's paper pack by Echo Park? Leave me a quick comment and you could win! I'll post the winner on Thursday.

oh, and before I forget.... there's a new site.... I'm SOOOO excited about it... check it out...

I can't wait to cut some of those out with my Silhouette!
Have a wonderful day!
