So behind...

Well, you know me. I get so busy scrapping and I forget to come back to post my pages here. I'm sorry!
Before we get started, a little bit of fair warning. It is a long post, but if you stick with me, I promise it will be worth it!

I know I say this all the time, but I really love how this page turned out. I just love these photos, and the memory of that wonderful day. On this particular trip we found 19 full sand dollars! It was just like finding treasures! So when I saw this saying, I knew it was perfect!
I used Erica Zane's kit "Sail Away".

Well, as I told you in my last post, Ellie Lash is a guest designer over at Scrapable this month. Her very first kit in that shop was called "Backyard Sweeties". Take a look. It is SO cute!
And here is my page, "Backyard Sweetie" (I know, real original title, huh? lol):

Ellie made the next kit for Sunshine Studio Scraps and she named it "Monsters!" Hehe. There's nothin' scary here! Just another adorable kit! Perfect for all those "Lil' Monsters" in your life! ;)
Here is my lil' monster, being silly at Cody's birthday party a few years back.
Ellie has two new kits just released at Scrapable today, "Sugar & Spice" and "Snips & Snails". But don't let the names fool you! They are very versatile and chock full of cuteness! See for yourself.

Here is my page from "Snips & Snails". These pics of Zach were taken on my very old Motorola Razor cell phone camera. They cleaned up not too shabby, huh? ;) He's just so stinkin' cute anyway, that it doesn't much matter. hehe
You gotta LOVE being the Mom of boys! LOL!

Rachael has been a very busy girl lately too! OH! But first, speaking of Creations By Rachael... I have some very exciting news! I have just officially been made permanent on her CT!!! Woo Hoo! I am SO thrilled! Thanks again, Rachael!
Ok, here is a gorgeous kit by Creations By Rachael, "Wings and Wildflowers". I absolutely love the color scheme, the beautiful papers and the unique elements. See for yourself:
Beautiful, huh? This kit is so packed full of beauty, I made two pages and you'd never know they were from the same kit! I love that!

Side note: I had such a great Mother's day this year! We had all 5 kids back home again for the weekend! I LOVED it! Thank you guys! You don't know how much I appreciated it! And thank you for indulging me and my need for pictures! :P I love you all!! xoxo!

Rachael's newest kit became available on Tuesday. It's called "Denim Days", and I absolutely love it! It's got such a rich color scheme, and Rachael has an amazing talent for designing such beautiful papers and unique and versatile elements.
I took this photo of Zach at the Oregon Zoo back in '05, and I have been waiting for the perfect kit to compliment it. This kit is definitely that kit! Look at the mischief in that boys eyes. I hope he never out grows that!
Look at my puppies! They were so adorable when they were tiny! No wonder I just had to have them! Too bad they had to grow up, huh? Lol, JK! I luv my doggies!

I used Brandy's two most recent kits, "Secret Garden" and "Fingerprints Set 3", to remember the year we planted all the lavendar in our front yard. Here are her kits:

My yard smells beautiful! And here is my page:

Sunshine Studio Scraps is being shut down for the next couple of weeks, but NO WORRIES! It's being given a face lift and it will reopen, better than before, on June 1st! Just in time for their 2nd birthday!!
Here are the last two pages I made before the shut down:
For the first one, I used "Intense Love" by Craft-tastrophic. It is beautiful with the purple and green color scheme.
This is one of my sisters' favorite pics of my niece, Akaila. I'm glad I was able to scrap it for her and I hope she likes it.

My last SUN page was made from Valarie Ostrom's kit, "Dear Mother".
I used one of my Mother's Day photos again, and I really like it in the black and white with the colors of this kit. And with all the good and bad... I truly do LOVE being the Mom.
Yeah, I know... They're all taller than me, except for Zach. And it won't be long till he passes me too! But I'll always be the Mom ;)

Alright, last one for tonight. This last kit is a Collaboration of the Polka Dot Plum Designers to raise money for the National Cervical Cancer Coalition, called "Perspective".
When I was asked to work with this kit, I did not know what it would be benefiting, but I could just tell that it was something special. I had an idea that I thought would be fitting of such an inspiring kit.
My Grandma has had a very hard time the last couple years dealing with the death of my Uncle Doug, her only son, to cancer. She has a friends at church who also just recently lost a son in a horrible accident. They have become very close friends, understand and feeling each others pain and helping each other to cope in the tough times. I wanted to make this page for them, letting them know that I love them both and pray for them still. I know it is a true comfort for both of them to know that they will be reunited with their boys when the Lord comes to take us all home together.
You are loved, Grandma and Molly, by God and by every heart your lives have touched! As a friend of mine says, "Be blessed, because you are a blessing."
xoxo, Krista
