I am finally able to upload a page again and my computer is back and running better. I love kids that know about technology!!! If it wasn't for my 2 boys I would be here without a computer and I'm sure I would be going mad...LOL...I also got a page done and with the month or more that I have had lately it is truly amazing. I am still feeling scrappy and may actually produce more this week.
This is my oldest and youngest out of my 7 kiddos. This was taken when Josh (who is turning 21 in a few days) was in the 8th grade and was really into skateboarding and music and well Mitch he is and was into anything with wheels. I love finding pictures of days gone by. I miss my younger kids. Halloween this year was sad, birthdays are happy yet sad and I truly miss having young kids under foot. Can you have kids at 44 and not be looked at funny...LOL...I miss when anything and everything was exciting to them....awww well they grow up and I guess parents are never ready. Come on grand kids...hee hee hee

Needless to say my creativety has all but left me and I wish I could somehow get it back. I did so a page awhile back but my scanner wouldn't work and then my computer crashed. Now my computer is working again so I will try to reload my scanner and see if I can finally get my page up. Believe it or not I didn't use Stampin Up on my page...LOL..
Anyway I just wanted you all to know that life just got very crazy and I am still around.

Every year our stake holds an annual picnic out at the church ball field. The kids have always had a good time playing games and eating lots of great food. For the past couple of years brother Chuck has been making dutch oven cobblers and you can always find Ub, Zachary, and Jeremy there to help him. As you can see Ub has found a very inventive way to mix the cake mixes, A POWER TOOL with a whisk attached...LOL.....aren't men funny what they come up with. This year Zachary invited his new girlfriend Bellaand we were so glad she could make it. I had a great time getting to know her mom, Susan...such an easy name to remember...LOL.
I still haven't been able to figure out my scanner issues but I did manage to take a pic of my page so we'll see how it looks later.
Have a good night

Truthfully it's probably my darn computer that is causing all this grief but my darling son Josh or Jared will come to my rescue and figure it all out. Thank goodness they know something about computers.
Have a great day everyone

This page is a page done of one of my older boys he turned 19 and I just cannot believe how fast time went. I feel this way about all my kids really. I love milestones but do we have to reach them so quickly...LOL...in 2 months he will be 20 and Josh will be 21 and I feel like I'm to young to have a 21 and 20 year old already. I'm sure all parents feel this same way.

I decided to join an ATC swap over at www.splitcoaststampers.com. One of my favorite bloggers, me, my, stamps, and I has some really cute cards she has made with her ATC's so I thought why not join a swap and try my own ATC's. These are for the Spooktacular Halloween swap and I signed up for two spots. Talk about fun and super easy!! The top one I am going to use on a page and the bottom one I think I will make a card out of. Those are my projects to work on this week. Then I signed up for a journaling ATC and I will start on those this week too. I am lovin this small size. I have 2 gallon size ziplocks full of Stampin Up cardstock scraps and this will really help use them up. Thanks for looking.

I never get my swaps done on time and I am usually sorry because everything I WOULD have gotten back is so darn cute. Well this time I did get them done. We had to make 9 pages and 10 cards. The page is done but I want to get pictures on it before I upload it here. Here is my card and I didn't lift/case it from anyone...LOL...so unusual for me. Cards are just not my thing but I do love making them. My upline holds her own swap of just her downline girls at convention and they were nice enough to let me join even though I don't get to go to convention. They are such a talented group of ladies and I can't wait to see what they have come up with. Thanks for looking and have a good one.

and it didn't snow....LOL....I take way to long on one page and way over analyze pages but I am trying to be better about NOT doing this and just having fun with this hobby. I have forgotten how fun it is and how every page doesn't have to be ready for publication, which I haven't been published EVER....I have won contests but I haven't ever wanted to publish anything. Maybe it's laziness or just that I don't care. Oh well my blog and my scrapbooking site I love is all the publishing I need. If you ever want to see my gallery here is the link to see other pages I have done...SB.com I have been on Scrapbook. com for years and I post everything I have ever done there.
The top 4 pages were done at a class I went to from Close to My Heart and were workshops on the go and we got to do 3 double page spreads but one of my layouts is missing because I had to pick up a kiddo from school. It was a great class. The bottom page was done using Stampin Up products and my friend was making this into a card and I happened to say it would make a cute summer page with those colors and the next thing I know we were making a page. I LOVE this craft. Well I will stop my rambling for now and thanks for the love and stopping by.
Maria, my friend, link me your blog because I can't get to it by clicking your name. I can't believe I don't have it saved...uggg.
