I've been a bad, bad girl...

I've done a terrible, horrible thing. I am absolutely a no good, dirty, rotten scapdrel! I CANNOT belive that I have not updated my blog in OVER a year! What the (bleep) is wrong with me? Its not that I don't have anything to show you because I have been scrapping my heart out and then some! I've bought tons of scrappy goods, I've been trying to organize my scrap spot...I've got to do better...don't I? Don't answer that.

I guess since I am the biggest slacker in the land that I need to catch you up with what has been going on with me! I've had a really good year on my new job...I take that back, I had a FANTASTIC year! We started the school year in August and it has (by far) been the smoothest school year ever! My son is getting taller by the second and continues to amaze me academically and socially. He is four, yet he is currently wearing size 5 clothes. He is also in the "top" group at his school...yeah, they do it in Pre-school as well! He just started soccer again too, so get ready for some cool soccer layouts and projects! I have to brag and tell you that at his first soccer game, he scored all of the points his team had! I was sooo proud of him! Lastly, I've had a boyfriend for 6 months now...thats definitely new! Hmph, what else...OH...I have been rocking out some great layouts for the past month! I can't wait to show you.

Back in January, I made a personal goal to do 52 layouts for the year. I figured doing a layout a week wouldn't be much of a hassle...until August rolled around and I had only completed a whopping 16! Not so good. Well, you would be glad to know that as of today, I have completed a total of 43 layouts. WOO HOO! That means I am actually on track to exceed that goal of 52! I am really excited about that!  Here are a few of them that I absolutely adore:

Currently, I am working on an amazing paper bag mini album. I was inspired by Kathy Orta, the YouTube Queen of amazing mini albums! If you have not seen her work, you have to go and check her out! She makes you feel like you can do anything! I am also working on these teeny, tiny noodle boxes and mini albums for some of my friends at work. I learned how to make them in a swap and have been churning them out since! Check back in a couple of days to get a peek of all of it!

Until then...SMOOCHES!
