I think there is no question on my love of Studio J and how it has affected my scrapbooking and memory keeping. This summer has been so busy and when I find time to scrapbook it has to be quick, organized and I need to get a lot done at one time. Scrapbooking to me is relaxing when I can sit down and get a lot done. I also enjoy doing it while watching my favorite shows. These are some of my recent Studio J projects.
Some of my best girlfriends got to come to Pensacola for the weekend and I loved being able to get the photos scrapbooked really quick. I love being able to use my Instagram pictures because lets face it most of my pictures are on my phone these days. I also love that I could print off multiple copies of this layout to send to my girlfriends so they could have a happy. Even if they don’t have a scrapbook these layouts are fun for a wall. Stay tuned for lots more Studio J fun, I have been a busy Bee!

Hey all so I know several of you were following me during my week at convention. It was amazing as always. Close to My Heart wined and dined us as usual and then threw Mickey into the mix. It was AWESOME! I couldn’t wait to come home and get started back up and then, I opened my scrap room door. The crafting Gods threw up all in that room! Boxes, paper, markers, ink and kids toys everywhere. EECK! I had to start cleaning so I could get inky! Here is the before pick! Notice my darling “helper”. I managed to contain her to one area! I have made a dent but I still have a long way to go. I did manage to set up all my convention goodies so you could see all the CTMH goodness!

Hi all I know I know you have missed me. What a crazy 6 weeks I have had. I have truly not had any free time. I haven’t even scrapped, crafted or inked in 6 weeks GASP! Here a is a brief recap of our last few weeks.
Mid April-Sawyer had his first virus/sickness (which at 5 months is amazing for us) we ended up taking him to hospital for CROUP. How is it after 3 kids I had no clue about CROUP
Then April 29th we had a flood. Literally Pensacola received 27 inches of rain in a 24 hour period and many people lost Their homes. We had property damage but no water in our home Praise God. Our neighbors however were not so lucky.
My baby girl turned 5 and had an amazing Frozen party.
My baby brother married my gorgeous sister-in-law
I took a much needed vacation with some of my best girlfriends
My baby girl graduated Pre-K. I can’t believe I have a Kindergartner.
Then we had a few more visitors for a weekend.
WHEW what a crazy whirlwind life has taken us on! Needless to say it has been super busy and I have a ton of scrapbooking to catch up on. Be on the look out for some amazing scrapbook pages and classes coming up.
