some scrappiness

Hello! I have been seriously slacking in the blogging department...just being online in general. My schedule has changed a bit at work. I was working about 25 hours and Shaun and I figured I may as well work 5 more hours a week to get the nice benefits;) So now I am working a few more hours but in less days (3 days a week). Those are some long days...couple that with the fact that the tourism season in arriving so I am busy busy busy the whole shift. I have been one sleepy girl by the end of those days! I have the next few days off, but today is an early release day, so it's off to pick A up early then to the park for a birthday party, so on and so on. I hope to get my garden planted within the next couple days and snag some beach time. 

So that's my whole long story;) If you made it past all that, I actually do have some scrappy projects to share. I haven't scrapped this week, so these are from awhile ago:
Every once in awhile, the Nook does photo swaps, and I participated in this one. I swapped photos with Tara, and she was sweet enough to fulfill my request for sending me wintery pictures:) She sent me these photos of her beautiful family! I used Crate Paper's Snow Day collection (with some snowflake embellishments from American Crafts), and she told me that was her very favorite line by Crate:) yay! I had lots of fun with her pictures...someday I will get my kids in the snow!!

Some close ups:
I sent Tara some pictures of A in the sand and this is what she created:
I love it! I love the tags, colors, and white space!! I had no idea how to scrap these photos and I am just over the moon about how Tara scrapped them:) Thanks again, so much!!!

My friend, Lilith, was sweet enough to let me know one of my pages was the featured project at Two Peas...that has never happened to me before, I was so excited! I took a screenshot, but it is kinda hard to see:
One of my other pages was in the top 3 most bookmarked (along with some other Nook gals!). yay!

Here is the page that was the featured project:
I am so so so soooooo in love with the new AC Dear Lizzy Neapolitan line. It is gorgeous. I need more of it. I don't ever want to run  out, ha;)

I have another card to share that I created for a challenge on the Nook's card forum. I used the February kit for this:

And one more share....I made this frame for the AC blog:
You can check out the full picture tutorial on how to recreate it HERE:)

Happy weekend, friends!!!
(I know it is only Thursday, but since A is out of school tomorrow, it's the weekend!!!)

I think there is a rainbow hidden inside this post...there isn't a color that isn't popping out from somewhere!!

Congrats on the pea garden nod! That is one amazing page (even though you know that I love all of your pages) the colors of that line ate gorgeous!

I feel for you girl. That many hours sure can make you feel zapped. I am happy with my one to two shift/week for sure :) It gets crazier as the kids get older too, more lessons, more driving, more homework, and on and on. It's a season though, and before you know it you'll be on to the next one. I've missed you, but I know exactly where I can find you, thanks to the fabulous place we call The Nook. Hugs to you!
