Mojo was MIA!!!

Don't you HATE it when you feel like you
have NO mojo and just can't seem to sit down
and actually be creative...well that has been me
that last couple of weeks.  I would just stare at my
scrapbook table and stare some more, knowing
that I need to get busy, but just can't seem to do
it....well, finally....
I was able to sit down yesterday and scrap not
one layout, but two...which is very unusual for me...
I'm usually just a one layout-a-day kind of girl...but
I completed two layouts and it was so much
Well it also helps to get some inspiration from Liz's
Sketches over at "The Scrappiest"...Today sketch 120
will be up (isn't this a great one)...

Here is my layout using this fabulous sketch:
**Take Note**

I also used the fabulous Tallyscrapper May KIT "That's how we roll".  This kit is
jammed packed with some of the newest products and just frickin' ROCKS.  There
is only a few left, so get yours before they are gone!!!!

Here are a few other layouts that I did with this kit...
"Sandy Toes"

"2 of a Kind"

Also TODAY over at "What's Scrapping" today is
Monday's Bright with Color....

Don't you just LOVE these colors....I had so much fun doing this layout...

Counting my blessings....

Well, I don't even know where to begin...
well as most of you know, I live in Jacksonville, NC
and this past Saturday, they were calling for nasty
thunderstorms and tornadoes.  I think I watched the
news channel pretty much most of the afternoon, just
keeping an eye on where they were hitting...well, most
of the day, they were mainly north of about 7:15pm
you could see the storm cell on the tv showing that a storm
was coming our way and just about all of these storms were
producing tornadoes!!  The hubby and kids were outside playing
football in the cul-de-sac, so I yelled to them, that a storm was coming
this way and about 10 minutes later, they all came was starting
to rain.  The storm was coming into J'ville and they were calling for it
to hit the Piney Green area around we headed into the
bedroom closet and I just sat in there with the two kiddos.  Of course,
you could hear the storm, rain coming down along with lightning...we lost
power and of course hubby being from Iowa, was outside watching the storms,
basically listening for anything...he came running in, threw the mattress over the kids and I and
told us to stay down....the storm passed, we were still out of power and had no idea
if any tornadoes had hit anywhere...well they had, apparently right in some neighborhoods
right off of Piney Green.  So the storm had passed and we never heard anything else come our
way that evening, so we played a good ol' game of Charades with the kids in the dark and then
watched a movie on our laptop(thank goodness it was charged already).
Well, come to find out on Sunday morning, once power came back on...the tornado
first touched down on Camp Lejeune, Tarawa Terrace I and destroyed some of the
base housing before jumping across Hwy. 24 and then destroying a trailer park and then
onto the neighborhoods by my house.  The destruction is about 2 minutes from my house, but
at work on Monday, a bldg. inspector came in with his tornado path map...

Apparently, that tornado was alot closer then I had originally thought...My house is on the left hand side, in that neighborhood, I live in the culdesac...this is about a mile from where I live...Unbelievable.

I'm so thankful that we
are fine, but so many others in my community are homeless and have lost sad.

On to other news,

LOVE days like this!!!!

What a wonderful weekend we had...Sunday,
we decided to head to the beach and just relax...
it didn't start out beautiful at all, but by the end of the
day, it was absolutely gorgeous...had some crab legs,
shrimp at Molly's at the Sheraton on the beach and
the kids just enjoyed the sun and sand. I didn't think
they would get in the water, it was only in the 70's that day, but
boy was I wrong...

It was a great day....couple more shots that I
got of the kiddos..

They are actually being nice to one another, I'm ;)

Don't ask, I have no idea what he was doing...
he just likes to play in the sand.

My two boys...
Dad and Danielle 

these are the best kind of days...with the family and having fun.
