I Scrapbooked!

It’s been a while since I scrapbooked! Sure I’ve made some cards and mini books, but since before Christmas I haven’t sat down to do a “real” scrapbook page. So when I heard about the Scrapbook Throwdown contest going on at Memorable Seasons, I decided to jump in and get scrappin!


So the first Challenge was called Wedding Cake. I had to use a wedding picture, something old, something new, something borrowed, and something


Looks like a simple page right? Well, it took me FOREVER (it sat on my desk for 2 days)!! I hope that I can get my mojo again and start scrapbooking a little more often, and faster too.

I made this 6x6 heart board book for Valentine’s Day this year and I just LOVE how it turned out!


I used a kit that my friend, Shannon, made with Stampin Up! products.

I printed my favorite pictures from last year’s photo shoot and they just went perfectly!

Love Mini

Here are a few close ups of my favorites.



I don’t know if you can tell but half of the papers are glittery!


So cute!



I know this will be something the kids will love looking at over and over again! Hmm…maybe I should make one every year on Valentine’s Day! ;)

Email Shannon if you would like one too!

Valentine’s Party

On Friday the kids had their Bright Lights Valentine’s party. They were so exited to exchange cards and candy with all their friends. We had to wear our Valentine’s outfits.


Here is Kalen modeling the outfit that I made for her.


Tyler decided he needed to show Kalen how to model.


Like she needs any help.


“Alright Mom, enough pictures!!”


That was my first time making a skirt. It turned out so cute I know I’ll be making a lot more in the future!!

Then we headed out to the church for the party.

The girls.


And the boys.


And the whole group.


We had a lot of fun!

Later that night the kids had a sleepover at the Elmore’s so Mike and I could enjoy a night out by ourselves. We went to dinner and a movie, then didn’t have to worry about getting the kids to bed. It was nice!

We hope you all had a Happy Valentine’s day!
