While I haven't been so busy blogging here, I've written a few posts over at One Story Down, and I've been scrapping quite a bit lately.  That, along with school and trying to balance life, has been keeping me pretty busy.

I'm also taking Ali Edwards' 31 Things class and (of course) not really keeping up with it.  I love it, in theory, but forcing myself to set aside time to do it is totally different. I do want to do it, and maybe even scrap it into a little Shutterfly album or something.  Just hafta catch up.  Part of my issue with classes, seriously, is the pictures.  LOL.  If I didn't have to take the pictures to go along with things, it seems like it would be much easier.  Or maybe that's just an excuse.  hee hee

Had a good convo with my little sis today.  She's so funny/crazy.  Sometimes I can't believe the things that come out of her mouth.  It has been a surprisingly family-heavy week this week.  My grandma came over on Monday, My mom came over on Tuesday, my brother stopped by on Wednesday, and then talking/texting with him and my sis the other night.  And he is supposed to stop by to get a couple of things today after work too.  We've never been that close... he's not a close-type person, but it is good to be in touch with him more lately.

Anyway, here are some of the pages I've done this week.  I'm still trying to figure out how to fit in to Zig Zag Scraps and how my style meshes with their's, so I'm not completely happy with the pages I did for them this week.  But I love my Sissy Sparrows girls and their artsy products.  And Peeps & Milo (aka Chantal) had cool templates.  And of course, Lauren Reid and her great products.  It was all good.  Sara Gleason had some new templates out and she's letting me stay on her CT as a guest through the end of the summer.  So very lucky!!!  I just feel like a scrap piggy with all of the goodness that has been out there lately.

Love your layouts. I am a card maker and love your use of colors and how different they all from each other. The backgrounds are GREAT! Have a great 4th!
