Our First Home Scrapbook Pages

So I have been REALLY behind on my scrapbook so I have taken a good chunk of the weekend and tried to catch up (but I didn't get very much accomplished because I forgot how long it really takes to do this stuff). These are some of the layouts that I liked the most of the ones that I did. The first one I am not crazy about, but I do like the 2nd page much better! The first page is ok, but my favorite part of it is the little "envelope" that I made to the right of the picture of our house :o) The quality of the pictures is not the greatest because I took them in my office last night kind of late and we don't have the best lighting in here. Oh well! As far as the supplies that I used on these pages, I know that the paper I used is from American Crafts and is from the alaCarte collection that I got a great deal on at Big Lots. The piece of brown paper with the white lines on it from Basic Grey's line, offbeat. The sticker that I used is from The Paper Studio (Family Sayings #2). The bird stamp is called "Textured Bird" from Stampabilities and I did some embossing with it. If you are curious about anything else, just ask!

I am probably going to be pretty quiet this week. I have to work every day between now and next Tuesday, with the exception of this coming Tuesday! It's going to be one LONG week, and I'm not looking forward to it!

More pictures

So I realized that some of you who read my blog don't have Facebook and can't see all the pictures from my trip to PA so I thought I would post some more! Enjoy :)

Luna (my step-daughter) being silly at grandpa's house
Juan with his mom and dad (who are divorced, but still get along and spend lots of time together even though he is remarried and very happy)...kind of strange, but also makes it so much easier on us when we go to visit! We all had dinner together every single night! It was wonderful!

Juan and his son, Donovan

Me with Luna

Juan and I passing time by taking goofy self-portraits!

No longer MIA

I have been silent for a while because I haven't really had anything to post about. I wasn't doing much in the crafting world and all I was doing was just working. We did take a week and go visit family in PA. We had a great time and we are looking forward to moving up there around this time next year. Here is a picture from our trip up there to visit family:

We watched the movie Gran Torino today. I will be honest and say that I didn't really care whether or not we saw it, but it was a GREAT movie! I would really recommend anyone watch it. It dealt a lot with racism, but had a really good ending! I have never seen all the Fast and Furious movies either and recently we have watched all of them except for the Tokyo Drift one, and I am becoming a huge fan of these movies as well. LOL. I never thought I would like cars or racing, but since my husband has an "American Muscle Car" now I have started to get more interested in cars and that sort of stuff. We are standing in front of his car (an '09 Dodge Challenger) here:
I have been working on a scrapbook this weekend and maybe I will post some pictures of it later this week. Some pages are just kind of boring and plain (nothing more than some pictures and stickers), but I have made a few that I really like and I might post some of those soon. I will be working A LOT over the next 2 weeks so it might be a little hard for me to post at all, but I will try not to let so much time go between posts in the future!
