Not scrapping quite yet....

....although the thought has crossed my mind several times. I have been trying to get some stuff done around the house here...you know those fun things like pulling weeds, painting, landscaping, etc.....My buddy, Ryan, is away this week with his Dad in North Carolina, so it has been perfect for getting things done that are hard to do when he's around. The weather has been a bit "iffy" at best...chances of rain almost every day for the past week or more...ick! Today was the first day that the sun actually was shining for most of the day....yippee! It's hard to sit in the house and do anything when the sun is out playing in the sky! So, I have my scraproom all straightened out and ready to go once my chores are done...LOL!

In the meantime, I have another layout to share that was published in the May/June issue of BHG Scrapbooks, Etc.
Lots of journaling here about how I finally got my first teaching job after 13 years of being certified! I had to get this story down on paper since it was such a HUGE deal to me. I'm pretty sure if you click on the picture that you would be able to read the journaling (if you are in the mood)! I was thrilled to have this published! Thanks for stopping by, and maybe you'll see a new layout from me....one of these days!!! Have a great day!

Back to our regularly scheduled program.....

I can't believe it has been almost 2 months since I blogged. Well, it has been a crazy 2 months, but my main reason for not blogging was because I was not feeling well. Not sure what it was, but I was just not myself. And worse than not blogging.....I have not scrapped in 2 months, either (gasp!). To make a long story short....I wasn't feeling well, and now I feel better. So, I decided that it was time to get back to "normal" if anything is normal!

School ended today. I will miss those crazy kids. My first year teaching Civics in the 8th grade could not have gone any better. They were a great group of kids, and I will miss them terribly. So, now the summer begins, and I will be taking a little break from anything that remotely resembles work!

I hope to be blogging a lot more and hope to share any new scrappy goodness with you....if anyone is still around! In the meantime, here is the last layout that I created with some Fancy Pants goodies:
I just received a bunch of new goodies from Fancy Pants.....Kraft Kuts Boy and Kraft Kuts Girl.....so I am eager to get creating! Hope everyone is enjoying their evening. Thanks for stopping by!
