This is an oldy but it is perfect for the day!

So, once again it is Halloween and I have not gotten Carter a costume. He is so funny about dressing up. He does like things that are different from the everyday...this comes from his daddy as I love to mix it up. So, I will be out looking for costumes today. He says he wants to be a race do I pull that on off. Race Car driver I get but race car ... any suggestions?

Bad Blogger

So, I had an awesome time this weekend at my second retreat of the month. I actually got a lot done but it was only in the last few hours. I pulled a all nighter on Sat! Ugh...anyways, I have lots of layouts and pages to show you. These pages represent my business as well as a lot of other great products. Enjoy!

My Why!

This is a contest page I did for the Regional Celebration's last year! It was about why I am a Close To My Heart Consultant. It funny to think how much that why changes over the course of 2 years. Originally, it was about making an income and sharing my passion. Now it those things but so much more, I see this as my full time job I have no doubts about the path it is taking me on. One thing I never realized is how many amazing women would come into my life and the friendships I have created. That alone is reason to be a consultant.
Well, today will be my last entry until at least Sunday or Monday as I am on my way to another retreat. I can't wait to share all the artwork I create!

The Patch

Just as soon as I get last fall scrapped it is off to the pumpkin patch again. I have to be honest the day was going great until I looked at my son and realized he was really know that moment were it is so time to go home...but since you paid to play you push on. It always ends in screaming as you are hauling your child, pumpkin and kettle corn out of the patch hoping you appear to have it all under control. Now that is the real layout...what truly happened at the patch...the pictures can be so deceiving!

Final Retreat Layout #4

So this is the last Retreat entry! However, lucky for you I am going on another retreat this coming Friday! Exciting. This retreat is one I have been going to for years prior to being a CTMH consultant. Back when there was no patterned paper - just stickers and white base pages. Funny how we have evolved - and now I find my self going back to simple. I have made it more complicated then it needs to be.
In addition to all of these layout this week I reorganized my albums - all the pages have been categorized into four names Places we go, Things we do, People we love, and All about Us. This is from the book Photo Freedom. I am officially not scrapbooking chronologically! Boy does that take the weight off my shoulders.

Retreat Layouts #2

So, yesterday's post were more my style, but I am trying to simplify my layouts to save time and money. My husband told me once looking through my book "why don't you have more pictures on the page, I am not interested in looking at all the stuff." I realized that I had moved away from the reason for scrapbooking to the embellishing. Truely, though I love all that stuff! Now I am trying to do a little of both. These pages represent the style my husband enjoys.
