Top 12 of 2012

The year is almost gone, and I personally can't believe how fast it went! I swear that the older my babies get, the fast the time seems to that's why its nice, to look back over the last year and remember all of those amazing moments, whether they be a special occasion, or the perfect everyday moments.

So, I thought I would jump on the wagon and do a favorites of 2012 post, below you will find my top 12 projects of the past year, in no particular order, cause don't think I can narrow down that much. lol

Looking forward to seeing what 2013 has in store!

Hope you all have a happily blessed new year, and take the time to create something you love!

Motivation and Time

I have a layout today!! I finally got not only the time to scrap, but the motivation to actually get everything out and do a layout instead of take a nap! lol. I didn't realize how much I had missed it, that time for just me, to get all crafty and unwind! Really, really hope today wasn't just a fluke, and that I actually get to work on more layouts SOON! :)

Studio Calico is doing this awesome contest along with the Create blog, they are giving away a 6 month subscription, so when I saw that, it definitely helped to push me a little to try and get a layout, or maybe even 2 turned in, since I not only love their products, but would love to get their kits...and since the hubby is not on board with that quite yet, I had to give this a go.

Anyhoo, here is the layout that I am turning in for the contest. I used one of my favorite collections of theirs "Hey Day" on this layout, almost exclusively...there are a few other misc. embellies thrown in.

A quick back story on this layout, my middle daughter, Katlyn, is a lover of music. It doesn't matter what it is, she will sing and shake her booty to it. She changes her favorite songs fairly often, but this one here has been her favorite since she heard it from the first time....and something about it, even before she loved it, always reminded me of her....mainly the chorus, cause if you listen to the rest of it, it in no way speaks of a sweet little 4 year old. lol. I was lucky enough one day to snap this picture, and I immediately knew that that chorus was going to be the title. :)

 ( Just noticed my typo on there...still love the layout, lol, will just have to try and figure a way to cover/fix that...suggestions would be welcome! :))

I loved having this challenge, it really helped get that mojo going. So if any of you know of any other fun challenge blogs out there, leave me a link in the comments. I feel like I have been out of the loop for awhile and I'm not sure what's out there anymore! :)

Hope you all have a fabulous day! Take time to create something you love!

I'm a slacker

I feel like I have abandoned this poor little blog, I have just been so caught up in our sweet baby boy, and watching the girls with him, loving on him, you get the I apologize that I have been so MIA. The itch has finally came back though, I am dying to get some scrappy time in, and now that we are more in the flow and getting a schedule going I have the time, at least I think I will lol, to get some done.

So until I have layouts to share, thought I'd share a few more photos..mainly of baby boy, since he doesn't argue with me about getting his picture taken, at least not yet! :)

Here the girls are modeling their Indian headdresses, idea courtesy of the Fancy Pants blog, that we made for Thanksgiving. Little man had one also, but he wasn't to keen on wearing/modeling it for us. lol.
This sweet girl celebrated her 4th birthday last weekend. I can't believe how grown up she is, such a sweetheart, she is full of love, and her precious smile gets me every time. :)

Will be back SOON with a new layout or two to share. PROMISE! :)

Have a fabulously blessed day, and take time to create something you love!
