Scrap 4 Life Guest Designer

I've been bursting at the seams but now I can share my excitement. I've been chosen as the Guest Designer for Scrap4Life for August. If you haven't checked out this site I highly recommend it. I've been participating in challenges there for 5 months and love it. Their kits are top notch and the community is very welcoming.

I had the opportunity to work with their August kit. The kit had bold colors with polka dots and stripes. You know how I love spots.


Journaling: In large part to my siblings. Who I am today is due to my childhood with them. Our everyday adventures turned into priceless memories. Those memories that make your stomach ache from laughter. The stories that get more embellished over time. Growing up I didn't realize how lucky I was to have them. But as an adult I realize how blessed I am to have such awesome siblings. JOURNALING: This spring you were so excited to help plant flowers in the window box. You came with me to the nursery & chose the colors. Red, pink and white. You climbed right up and said 'I help' You started getting the soil prepped or planting. Filling up your pail, picking it up with great determination and emptying it in the bucket. Now that the petunias are planted, every day you get your little red watering can and help feed them.

We celebrated the Sweeney July birthday's at the cabin this year. Morgan- 11, Nicole- 16, Nick- 34 (Bennet snuck in)
Isn't she cute?

JOURNALING: You are such a happy baby. When I walk in the room you get a huge smile on your face and crawl as fast as you can towards me. After a long day you remind me that life is good.

I finally got around to scrapping my 30th birthday. I'll be 33 in Nov :)

JOURNALING: On my 30th birthday I was 8 month pregnant with B and ready to say goodbye to my 20's. A decade of milestones- college, jobs, travel, love, house, marriage. . . I'm truly excited for my 30's Bring it on. I'm ready for the next 10 years of memories, firsts. . . all of it.
