Oh man, I haven't blogged in forever...
No excuses though, just incredibly busy, I think??
So what have I been up to?
Well, we went to Virginia Beach over Labor Day Weekend
to visit our friends Gene, Rachel and Janessa
that moved up there recently...had a wonderful time!!
Here's just a few of the pics that I got while we
were there....our goofy kids....

So its back to the grind, kids in school, getting
myself back on some sort of schedule...hmmm, don't
think its working!! Bill's been traveling alot lately, so
its been scrapping time for me...Yeah!!!
So I've been scrapping with my fabulous
September Kit from Tallyscrapper

Here are a couple of my layouts using this gorgeous
"Hold on to Summer"
Close-up of the banners I painted with pink Acrylic paint and
then glittered them up with some of the Glitter Glam in the kit!!
"Sweet Thang"

Also, Survivor has started over at Tallyscrapper, as well....and
the first challenge was a doosey, by ms. Christine
The challenge was:
*Use a Will Ferrell Quote as your title
*Use Banners and Doilies on your layout
*Use the colors red and yellow
"How many sarcastic pills you take this morning?"

such a love/hate relationship :)
