I couldn’t find anything I liked in my stash, so I made something. Maybe I’ll put this “Zoo-licious” kit together and post it up here this weekend… but for right now, I must get some sleep!

Dinos & Soccer kits

I recently realized, I’ve been doing ALOT of shopping at the Sweet Shoppe lately.  but they have such cute stuff!  Like this one:

Since BigBoy is just Dino-obsessed, this is just too cute to pass up!  On sale today too!

And as long as I’m sharing…  I found the cutest soccer/sport kits at Sweet Shoppe too!

This word art set by MandaBean is awesome for sports stuff:

Anyway, that’s some of my latest finds.  Enjoy!

Goodbye

Goodbye

Goodbye is such a big part of our life.  I just felt the need to do something with the emotion.

Journaling says:

My love,
The hardest thing about being your wife, is having to watch you walk away.
Sometimes it seems that I am destined to watch you walk away for the rest of my life. Those first few hours without you, knowing you won’t be back for days/weeks/months, those are the the hardest. Eventually, I pull it together, & life moves on. But I will always miss you while you are gone. I feel your love, your support even from an ocean away, but I crave your arms around me. You are my soft place to fall.  My rock when the world seems to be against me. I miss not having you here, with me, but I understand why you must go.  So go.  Honor, Courage, & Commitment.
But please,
Hurry home.  We need you.
your loving wife

Birth of a Soccer Mom

First Soccer Layout

GeekBoy has decided to play soccer.  This is a big step for him, this getting off the computer and going outside.  *S*  But the registration has been paid, the chin guards bought, there’s no backing out now!

Most of this layout came from “MVP” by Dani Mogstad @ Sweet Shoppe Designs.  The soccer ball bkg I used for a photo matte is from Heather Roselli’s “Sports-Soccer”, also @ Sweet Shoppe Designs.  Word art came from “And I Quote… Athletes” by Manda Bean, and the note paper is by MandaBean, found in a TwoScoops kit, “Boys & their Toys” by Manda Bean & Zoe Pearn, at, you guessed it, Sweet Shoppe Designs.
The stitching on the ribbon (recolored to match) came from a Miss Mint kit, I think it was “Foxy Lady”.  The knot at the begining of the ribbon is a Christina Renee (extraced from a star, and recolored to match) blog freebie.  I also used some “Picture Blankets” versions I & II by Traci Reed.  The journalling font is one of my favs, Angelina.

Feels good to scrap again.  Now i just need to carve out more time for this.
