What a Slacker...

Yep, that's me...I've totally been a slacker lately. My creativity has just tanked lately so my layouts have been suffering, my photos have been suffering and my motivation to post has been suffering! I have a couple of pieces of business to post and then I am going to show you the few LOs that I've actually gotten done. I think I'm getting my inspiration back but we'll see how long it lasts!! I do have a few pictures edited and I would like to get a few more done so that I can post them...tomorrow, maybe! My husband says he doesn't know what's going on in his own life anymore so I'd better get back to my posting! :)

First is the new collab kit at STS. This month it's a huge kit and all the proceeds are going to charity. One of my fellow CT members, Tara, has been working to get an accessible playground for her daughter and the many other children who could use it! You can read about here daughter below and check out the cause here. All proceeds from this kit will go to help out these wonderful kids!! You can go to Stuff to Scrap here to pick this up!!

The second piece of business is that Scraps of Ellay is retiring some of her kits! I really love some of these and you really shouldn't miss out!! Just to make it easy on you, she's marked them down to $2 until October 31...after that, they're GONE!! Go to her store here to pick them up. You can see which kits in the preview below.
Now for the few LOs I've done in the last almost month! First I have this one from Thanksgiving 2008. I did this for a couple of challenges and I think it turned out really cute. It was a crazy weekend that year. We tried to go out of town but there was a storm and the roads were awful so we turned around and came home. This was the next day!

I actually really like how this next one turned out. It's really simple and pretty (I think, anyway). These are pictures from our family photo shoot this past summer.

I really don't like this next page (shhh). It was for a mini-kit challenge (where you have to use every item they give you) and the colours and the items just didn't inspire me. But, this is what I did anyway, so I'll show it to you.

This next one was for a colour challenge. They're supposed to be fall colours but they really reminded me so much of Christmas that I just had to do a Christmas LO with them. I think it's kinda pretty.

This next one I really love. This was a Scrapping U-Turn challenge. Basically, the hostess describes a page to you and you try to recreate it. I absolutely love this page with this picture of Evan.

This last page is from a freebie Eva Marina Scraps has on her blog right now. It's actually a HUGE blog train so if your interested, just hop on over here and start collecting! The theme of the blog train is thankful. I've realized that I have so few fall pictures that it's not even funny. I dug into the archives to get this one of Jason & I from 2001. We were dating at the time, I think.

Anyway, that's all the LOs I've got for now so I guess I'll be done with this post. I'm actually working on a LO that I really like so far so hopefully it keeps going well!

Until next time...


  1. I love, love, love that picture of you and Jason in the last layout - you look young, happy and in love...not that different from when I normally see you, I think!!
    I really like your pages! Thanks for sharing!

  2. I love the first page of Thanksgiving last year. I absolutely love the pictures and I love the fact that even though they're snow pictures, you still did fall colours. It makes a greater impact I think. Great job! Even in your slump you're still WAAAAY ahead of me!
