I'm back, BABY!

It's official, I am definitely feeling better -- I'm not tired at all and I actually have energy to get things done, still take care of the kids, and look, I even had a little bit of time and energy to do a project! Okay it was a really small one but the BIG project was yesterday. When I woke up yesterday I started working on a layout for Aaron for Father's Day (nothing like waiting until the last second -- typical me). I had no ideas or plans for it so that was helpful and I didn't get it completely done but I am blaming that on the fact that I had to spend soooooo much time looking for stuff. Okay the most BASIC of BASIC supplies in scrapbooking is adhesive. I bet I looked for it for about 10 minutes. The kids get into my scrapbook drawers and help me organize quite often. Also the scrapbook table that I bought a few months ago had been covered since January probably. Everytime I wanted anything I had to go digging -- driving me crazy. When the kids went down for their nap I organized scrapbook stuff for over 3 hours. I had to put all the paper that was everywhere away after they went to bed. Even though I have made a total of 2 layouts since February -- I kept buying stuff and Keely & Monica gave me some stuff too. Most of it was still in bags. Forgot I had some stuff. So I ran across this giant clothes pin that Keely gave me for my birthday. It was bare wood -- when she gave it to me I was a dummy and had to ask what it was for. I was looking at it yesterday and found some black and white paper (which I am so into right now) and decided I would decorate it today. Just some paint, paper, modge podge, ribbon and a flower and TAH DAH! It looks so cute on my black scrap desk! I now feel so organized and ready to create!
It was a good potty day for Miss Addison --she earned 11 stickers today! Only 3 accidents (one was at nap). Good thing I got out the football stickers too ~ as soon as Caden saw those he was ripping off his diaper and trying. He earned 3 today and probably tried a total of 5 times. Of course, to make his Daddy extra proud he picked a PINK football sticker. Don't know what kind of sticker is going to make Ethan want to potty -- he could care less about stickers or candy, he's just not so into it yet!

Love the photo holders! VERY creative idea and it look slike it turned out great! I have only recently begun scrapping, but the idea of paper scrapping always overwhelmed me and I had no idea where to start. I have recently found digital scrapping and it is mess free and I am learning as I go, but am having a good time. You ever try it?
