I'm here, I'm here! I'm alive!

Shame on me for neglecting you for so long!
Almost a week! I tell ya, these kids and husband of mine need to realize where my priorities lie...Scrapping, Blogging, and then them!
(You know I am only kidding)
We have been busy with baseball, school and work.
I'm not sure if I've mentioned it here but my husband and I
are starting a new business venture.
We are opening a furniture store!
I am very excited but know it's going to be a lot of work.
It will be located in Blue Springs in the new Adams Dairy/Coronado development.
It is right next to Texas Roadhouse and Planet Sub. Our grand opening is November 6th!
Last weekend we took the kids and went to the Plaza Art Fair
Any of you local Kansas Citians know what an fun (and free!) event this is.
Where else can you:
a. look at awesome art
b. bring your dog!
c. drink a Bellini while doing all of this! ;) I'll share some of my favorite pieces with you...
I know you are dying to see, right?
This is hilarious, don't you think?
Here is my favorite, simply titled "BabyMaker"
Ah, a woman after my own heart! LOL

These little siamese robot twins caught my eye, aren't they great?

And this is FAB!
All in all it was a beautiful day, great weather and well behaved kids even!
Moving right along...this is supposed to be a scrappy blog right?
Well guess what, I've got some new layouts to share with you!
Here is a 2 page spread with some birthday photos of Koby. He was turning 6.
He is now 7.5...better late than never though.
(sure....slacker mom!)
I used MME Abbey Road papers and Maya road chipboard
painted with Distress crackle paint.
The letter stickers are Pink Paislee

Here is one that has more recent photos...this time of Mia and her friend, Mia!
I just LOVED these pics and couldn't wait to scrap them. The colors are awesome!

EEEK! Halloween is getting close!

Can you guys believe it is October 1st already?
Here is a layout using the brand new MME "The Spider's Web" papers
Aren't they delicious?
The pics are from 2005 but I could scrap them over and over
(I think this is the 4th layout I have done with them on it!)

Just one more (I know, I'm long winded tonight, eh?)

These photos are so near and dear to my heart, I will never forget my Little Miss Mia
dancing with her Daddy at my cousin's wedding back in June.
She sooo has him wrapped around her finger!
He's not too strict with her...he says she can date when she's married.

This week I received some very exciting news but I am going to make you wait until Monday to hear about it. (What a tease!)

If you are still reading then, thank you.
Thank you for being interested in me and my crazy life.
Each one of you mean so much to me and your comments just brighten my day!!

Now I'm off to my happy place...
