Natural Moods and Camping Out!

Hello everyone! Gosh do I have tons to chat about today,
so sit back and be prepared for a long post.
We changed the clocks, Ohhh man I hate the change.
I accidentally changed it 2 hours ahead,( don't ask!! LOL)
so I was way off on time all day on Sunday, I am still
not sure what time it I don't know about
the rest of you, but it takes me a good 2 weeks
to get used to this change. I have a hard time
getting to sleep and even a harder time getting up!
Let's hope these next two weeks fly by!!! lol

Last week was a crazy week for me. I had to work
all week which meant going to bed early and getting
up early and NO jammie days...LOL I tried scrappin'
after dinner, but nothing was coming to me, I was
thinking I lost it! I would shut the computer down
and pray that the next night would be different,
but it wasn't. Saturday finally comes and I should
get stuff done, but nope my mojo was lost. The weather
man says its gonna be a warm day, so off the computer
goes again, I went out shopping for myself and my dogs
of had a nice day getting some of that warm
air into these lungs of mine. And when I came home and
started to play I couldn't stop...the layouts just started
flowing again, YIPPIE I found my mojo!!!

So now where do I start...
Well, I will start with the kit that inspired me.
Beth RAKed me with her new kit called Natural Moods... It
has everything in it I love, yeah I am a girly girl, I love
flowers and ribbon and it is my favorite color blue! I knew
what photo I wanted to use and everything just came together.
I really like how this one came out, so I emailed it to Beth
and thanked her profusely for giving me back my mojo! LOL
Here is her new kit:

If you would like to get this kit click HERE to go to
Beth's store, it's on sale at the moment... 25%off

and this is what I did with....

This is Ambry, she was at Abbie's birthday party last week,
what fun I had taking pictures of both of these babies.
Ambry turns 1 in about another month.

Sunday me and my sister Lisa were suppose to get together
and make cards with all our new stuff from my Stampin'Up
party, but she wasn't feeling good, so we just decided to
do that another day. Which was fine by me, I had more
layouts to get done anyway.

Kim had gotten her new kit done and I needed to make something from
it. Wait till you see this one! If you like camping you'll LOVE
this one! I haven't camped in many years, we go RVing which is
more up my alley. Gotta have that bathroom and shower...nothing
like camping with those luxuries. Plus electric and cable...LOL
Gotta love those!!!
Anywayyyy, here is a preview of Kim's new kit called Camping Out.
Click the preview and it will take you right to her store, for
this week only it's 30% ya better hurry!!!!

And here is my 1st layout with the kit....

This is Abbie, of course I extracted her and put her in the
tent, worked perfectly! LOL

And this one I just played with more stuff from kit.

After playing with this I thought it would make a
great QP for all my dear readers. So if you like to
have it, just click on the preview below.

Now onto other stuff... I have this very good friend at SBM.
She is such a sweetie, she hasn't been around for awhile but
now she is back and I am so happy she isn't gone for good! LOL
She has done some remarkable layouts with my kits, gosh this
girl makes my head so big sometimes...LOL Hey Elle, gotta a pin??
to deflate my ego! LOL So I wanted to show off some of the work
she has been doing, I put them on 2 pages, I would love to show
them one by one, but she has been really busy!!! LOL
Here they are:

Thanks so much Elle! I love these layouts!!!! You are really
a sweetie!!!!

Now I must go food shopping, UGH, I hate food shopping! Well, not
so much the shopping itself, but the carry the bags into the car,
then into the house, then up the stairs and putting it all away,
then taking it out to cook....UGH.....LOL But someone has got to
do it! Might as well be ME!!! But first I need a list of what I
am making, decisions, decisions!!! I am thinking simple this week,
maybe cereal, those boxes aren't heavy! LMAO....

I still have to get the color challenge done for DSO. I tried
making stuff, but it just wasn't working last week, so hopefully
this week will be better! I should have it done by the end of the
week, hopefully!
Well, that's about it!!! Hope you all have a great week!!!

Chow for Now!!
