Busy, Busy.....BUSY!!

I swear, I seriously need like three of ME...that would help out tremendously!! Between Soccer tourament games, broken butts and ER visits, Hubby coming home, scrapbooking...its been CRAZY!! Okay, your wondering about the broken butt...well, my dear DJ fractured her tailbone last saturday at a Retirement Party up the street on a blow-up bouncy thing...she's doing alot better, she's just really sore and has to carry a pillow with her everywhere!! Kaleb had his last soccer game yesterday...they played such a GREAT game and they ended up tying it up, but when they went to goal shots, they lost by one and didn't win...Boohoo!!!

I've got some exciting NEWS...I was participating in the March Madness Contest over at Timeless Daydreams, it was FIVE weeks of Awesome Challenges by both Michele and Dolores and Well, I WON one of the three Guest Designer spots...WOOHOO, So excited...they put out the best KITS :) Here was my last layout for Round had to be an "All about ME" layout...

"This is ME...Today"

Next Challenge is UP for Dirty Scraps:
Challenge #8:
COMPASSION, there is definitely a lack of compassion in this world that is full of judgment. So this challenge is all about compassion, maybe it will give someone else perspective on having compassion and less judgment, maybe it will make you think twice next time? So scrap a page about yourself, and something you "wish" people would stop judging you about and have compassion for you about. Not feel sorry, not pity you, but have some compassion because they don't know the whole
story. Let's spread the love and get some insight on life :)

Here is my layout for this challenge:
I'm just sayin'..Don't JUDGE!!

Come on over and join us!!!!
Have a GREAT week!!!

Enjoying the warm Weather!!!

I am just LOVING this beautiful weather that we have been having here in good ol' NC lately...I've been planting and planting NEW bushes and flowers in my gardens...I had some Lantana that really over took my front garden and it got so big, that it killed some of my holly bushes...just an excuse to get some new plants and bushes!!! I've also been messing around with my camera taking some photos of some of the new flowers and new growth...

And of course, I have to get some pics of the NEW leaves on my Crate Mrytle...this is one of my favorite trees...

Woohoo Hostas, hostas and more hostas...this is just about the only plant that is coming back up and its multiplying...LOVE my Hostas!!!

Just a few goofy pics of my daughter...she is such a camera ham...

Also, GUESS WhAT...I designed the April Kit from Tallyscrapper!! I was so honored when Brandy asked Nikki and I to designed a kit each...but honestly, I didn't realize how hard it is...especially when trying to find stuff from different manufacturer's and hope its matches...but I like the final result!! Thanks Brandy!!(the kit should be up for sell today!!)
Check out a couple of my layouts using my kit...
