I know sounds strange, but I love my Mondays. The boys are back in school. My house is clean from the weekend, laundry done. It's an easy day! Very relaxing!!!

So I was in charge of the ScrapMatters post today. You can check it out here. I completed a few new layouts this weekend to go along with the posting. I had to update my wall with some new pages.

I thought they turned out fun. Also, we have 2 new designers at ScrapMatters that are amazing! I'm so excited, I'm downloading as we speak. Just a tiny preview because there is just a ton of new kits. We have Lisa of LG Perspectives and Leslie of GG Designs(Golden Girl) designs. I can't wait to start using their kits.

Awesome right? So, in review, Monday's are good, I've published my 1st article(haha) and awesome new designers are at ScrapMatters.

Saturday Special!!!

My blog is looking a little bit different. I'm trying new things so be patient. I haven't quite figured it out yet! And if any of you can tell me how to add elements to my background page that would be sooo appreciated.

Anyway! ScrapMatters started having challenges on Saturday now too. Tuesday will be the Template Challenge and Saturday will be different fun and creative challenges. Today's challenge is about opposites. You can check it out here.

Here is my take on it...

I know, a boy page! Crazy huh! I went to the mall last week because my 6 year old has this horrible habit of crushing the backs of his shoes down and his pair he got for Christmas were trashed! So I went to the new Vans store in our mall, I don't know why I love Vans so much but I do. I found these cool pair of Old Sckool vans for Hayden, way cool right? Then I turn around and they have the matching shoes in crib shoes for the baby! Sooo cute! So of course I had to have them. I was way excited that I actually had a reason to scrapbook them! Yes, I'm a dork!

Now I have to go because prom is tonight and I have like 5 updo's to do but before I leave I found this way cute thing on one of the members at Cafe Mom's home page. I loved it and wanted to share!!!

Finally a Freebie

I know I have been saying forever that I would post another freebie, I finally came through. I meant to post this on Friday but my weekends get busy with everyone home and working.

So here is my template for you...

Download here

Yes I know, a little boring. But it is boring for 2 reason. 1st when I download a template I usually will choose the ones that I can use any kit I want and embellish it to my hearts desire. The 2nd reason is so that I can show you just how cute it can be...

For those of you that have not seen Brittney's new Her Royal Highness kit you have to check it out! It is a dream come true for me. How sad is it that I haven't even scrapbooked Hensley's 1st birthday yet. I guess I just needed the perfect kit. Here are the previews of Brittney's new kit and the 2 that coordinate with the kit. There is also a fun freebie on her blog that has some princess quotes...

Can you even believe how perfect this kit is. It is so fun to work with.

Here is the polka paper...

And Faith, Trust and Pixie Dust...

She also has a brag book...

Don't forget to check out her blog for the coordinating 'Who needs a fairy godmother' mini kit.

(link is above)

Here is how much fun I had with this kit...

Hensley got this dress for her birthday. She started stripping off her clothes the minute she opened it. Party guests and all.

Love, love, love this kit. And of course it is available exclusively at ScrapMatters.

Also, the Quick Page Exchange for this month we are using the Luke kit by Ellie Lash...

I haven't done mine yet, but there are already some awesome quick pages in the forum.
I'm extending a template challenge to my cafemom group, if you want to participate, there will be a prize.
Have a great day!

Tuesday Template Challenge

Hello everyone! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend!!! I got a lot accomplished. Unfortunately not much of it was scrapbooking. I have been really busy with my salon the last couple of weeks. My computer time has suffered because of it! LOL!

Check out ScrapMatters Blog for the challenge this week and then post your layout here. There is a chance to win $5 GC to the ScrapMatters store!!!

Here is my entry...

You get a fabulous free template and then there are certain items that you can and cannot have on your layout. No flowers!!! That was my challenge, I always use flowers.
OK, baby is crying and I still have to grocery shop so I will be back soon. With a freebie, I promise. Also, check back soon, I've decided to switch up my blog a bit. The link will be the same.
