So sneaky!

We had a nice weekend here. We headed down to Ocala for my little brother's state fire college graduation. I was so proud of him!! :) He has worked so hard for the past 3 months and it all paid off this weekend. I will share some pictures tomorrow! Lots of family there to help celebrate!

My in-laws came for the weekend and we had an enjoyable time! Bayleigh got a new Crayola camcorder for her birthday - so she is in hog heaven. I don't think that she put that thing down the entire weekend. hehe And with the added memory card - 80 minutes of film. Oh boy are we in trouble! The drama queen officially has a stage! *grin*

We are on spring break this week and just enjoying our time. Today we stayed in our pj's all day, watched some movies, and baked some cookies. Lovely day if I do say so myself! Tomorrow is errand day - so we will head out mid-morning to get a few things done. :)

Had to make sure to pop in with some sneaks for Scrap'n Supply Shack. I got to work with the card kit and had a blast with it!!!! :) So, here are some sneaks - the full shebang will be up in a few days!
Be sure to check it out! The kit should be going live very soon! Fun stuff for sure. :)

Alright, off to get some scrapbooking in. I love spring break - I get to stay up late!!! And lounge around. Well, as long as my children play along. *smile*

Until next time....

We were so busy yesterday! I don't like days like that. We had an appointment for Layne's 1 year check-up in the morning. Then, we went to Target to pick up a few things (since it is right next door!!!). I grabbed lunch on the way home and put the boys to bed when I got here. I tidied the house for a few before getting ready for my dentist appointment. Ran home afterwards and got ready for Bayleigh's first teeball/softball game. was soooooo busy!

So, I have declared today "chill out day." We need a day to catch our breath because the rest of the week is just as busy.

Layne is coughing and sneezing all over the place. I am not sure if it is his sister's ickies or if the pollen is wreaking havoc on him. Man, it is just sooo bad right now. We need rain really bad to wash some of this pollen away for sure. The cars and driveway are covered with yellow pollen....shoot, who am I kidding!?!? It is *ALL* covered with pollen.

Have a layout to share with you. It's sketch #12 from Inspired Blueprints.

All of the paper, die cuts, and journaling punch out is from Scribble Scrabble. Just *LOVE* their new lines. The above page uses Ruth's collection. I am working on another page with some more of their goodies. :) You have to check them out. Tell your lss to get it in because it is just fabulous. You will love it immediately! I still can't decide which line is my favorite.

Enjoy your Tuesday....I am off to wipe more snotty noses. Come on Mother Nature, give me some rain!!! We need relief!

Until next time....

it's about time, huh??

Well, we are still alive over here at the Wildes house. hehe Things were hectic the past few weekends with birthday party's and then I left for a woman's retreat - where I was teaching a class on scrapbooking! So, lots of prep had to go into that and into getting my family ready for me to be gone. LOL I think Bayleigh asked me 4 or 5 times to pray for her while I was gone....too funny! She's smarter than Andy knows. *grin*

The scrapbook class was a *huge* success. Even more than I could have imagined or planned for. The interest was huge and so I am leading the scrapbooking department at Fellowship Baptist Church. hahaha Okay, it's not a department really, but I am guessing it might need a committee soon. Right, MTM and APC?? *wink*

On April 17th, I am starting our Crop Til You Drop cropping times. They will happen once a month and are for people who are just beginning and people who have been doing it for years. If you are interested in coming, please email me!! :) It will start at 6pm and will go until the last man is standing. hehe Dinner and general supplies are included in your $10 fee and kits are available for purchase if you need it. I am so excited and I just know that we are going to have an awesome turnout and will only get bigger and better. Space is limited due to location, so please email soon!

On to the good stuff....Little Red Scrapbook pages. The reveal went up last week, but I haven't had time to get my act together to post them. So, here they are!! Lots of fun Homegrown stuff by 3 bugs in a rug. :)

So much fun to work with this kit for sure. I even tried my hand at a 6x12 page!! And April's kit will knock your socks off!!! :)

Hope that your Monday is going well. I am down 1/2 an inch around the waist since starting to workout 2 weeks ago, so that makes me smile. Progress is always encouraging!

Until next time..... (which won't be nearly as long!!)

We are finally better around here. Layne was cutting 3 teeth. Then he got a touch of RSV, which we had to have treated and monitored. For 3 or 4 days, he didn't eat. He maybe had a total of 4 ounces over the those days. Poor baby! But, now he is making up for lost time and eating me out of house and home.

I am getting ready to hit the road this weekend for a woman's retreat on St. George Island with my church girls. I am actually teaching a scrapbooking class, so I will be busy prepping for that today. I will share the project I have planned when I return. :)

As promised, I am going to share some layouts that I have done in the past couple of months, but haven't shared. Bad bad girl!! hehe

Inspired Blueprints sketch #10 - using the Kenner Road kit from last month (which is DIVINE):
Inspired Blueprints sketch #11 - using the add on papers from February's Little Red kit:
There are just so many great sketches. And we have a great surprise in store for April, so be sure to check it out. You won't want to miss out on any of it! :)

And finally here are some sneaks for March's Little Red Scrapbook kit. This line by 3 bugs was featured as an editor's favorite in the newest edition of Scrapbooks, Etc. (by BH&G). You don't want to miss out!

I got a page done with some of the fabulous new Scribble Scrabble, but can't share just yet! Their new lines are just so delish - run, don't walk, to your lss and tell them that you must have this new stuff. :) You will not be disappointed.

Off to work on my project kits for the weekend. Enjoy your Thursday!

Until next time...

So I can finally share these pictures from my 30th birthday punking by my friends. Aren't they the best?!?! The picture in my post before was showing the 380+ forks in my yard. haha

The mailbox that greeted me when I came home from dinner:
My car was filled with crumpled newspaper and balloons!
The street with my "old" driveway:
The number 30 in forks under our tire swing:
Our front porch:

My mug in front of the door:The sign with everyone's siggies on it. :) Yes, they left evidence of who was involved. hehe
Making my mad face! hahahaha Don't buy it for a minute.

Such fun!!

Gonna share some pictures of birrthday weekend. Here was Layne's treat - a rib!! haha Look at that boy gnawing on the bone....typical boy huh?? He loved it and didn't want to give it up when it was time for bath. He had a conniption - arching his back and screaming!! haha (which seems to be a new trend in the Wildes household lately *eye roll*)
And here's Miss Bayleigh with her new night clothes with her fun painted nails. Her Nellie (American Girl) doll has matching pjs. She was so excited to get these - as Nellie is now retired as are all of her things. :) So she was beyond thrilled when my mom gave her this set for her birthday. Oh and her new headband that she used her Claire's gift card on! (Thanks MTM!)
How's that for picture overload. :)

Check back tomorrow for some fun new layouts. I have been slacking on posting them - so I am way overdue and behind.

Until then...

The cookies have left the building...

So, it's Girl Scout cookie time. Yes, indeed. Our garage was overloaded with cookies that needed to be delivered. Let me just say that I am now 95% done and I could not be happier! LOL I will be glad when those things are out of my house for sure. Be gone with them!

Some other news - I have started working out again. FINALLY! It has been months since I last worked out. But, I had to start somewhere right?!?!? So, I used that On Demand that I pay for every month and did a workout video with Jillian from the Biggest Loser. Two days in a row! YAY me. That's a good start. My goal is to workout at least 5 days this week. Start small and grow is my mantra. Yeah, it has to be because this is totally kicking my butt!

I owe pictures from my 30th birthday punk. So, here they are. The one picture I showed last time was of the 350+ forks all stuck in my yard. hahaha But, apparently blogger isn't going to cooperate for pictures tonight.

The little man is now 1. He uses his little lion push toy to walk around the house and just sticks his chin out waiting for someone to look at him. When you do, he starts babbling and grinning - just so proud of himself. I will try to take a picture tomorrow. Although I am sure it won't be the greatest since he is in constant motion.

Off to finish up a layout with the new Scribble Scrabble. Oh man, this stuff is delish! I can't wait to share this page with ya'll. Look for it on the Scribble blog soon. Check out their new lines...because I have a hard time choosing only one as my favorite! :)

Have a good one...I will try to get those pictures up tomorrow.

Until then...
