A Mommy "oops"

I will admit that my photo taking skills on doubles really suck - this is honest to god straight IRL. Combined the lovely sketch at Sketchy Thursdays and Mission to Create - Mission 17.
The challenge at Mission to Create was to use : the color Brown, Distressing, Decorative Edge Paper (hand cut scallops? hope these "count"), a vintage item. I don't own any beads so could only do 4/5.
Anyway - this is what happens when you don't have child safety locks on your cupboards - exploration heh

I signed on the dotted line!

After putting an offer in last week, discovering foundation issues and having things fall through on that house we decided to go into a higher price bracket and found ourselves a gorgeous 2400 square foot 5 bedroom house with double garage and a fully fenced yard (double lot!). We've got a conditional offer so just need to get our financing sorted out officially and get the inspection. Im nervous that it won't work out even though I know that it should as my dad said he would co-sign for us. Our life is going to change so much that whenever I think about it I have tears come to my eyes, it's going to be so great for the kids and us!

Scrapping however may be taking a fair bit of a back seat for a while between us moving, me working, school and us having to finish the house we are in and get it on the market and/or rented out. Yikes!!

Just thought I would share.. And I keep thinking of all of the new and wonderful photo ops I will have in having such an awesome yard for my kids!

Holy smokes the scrap muse strikes again!

Every time I "see" an opportunity to scrap I keep trying to plan it out to maximize my time seeing as it's so hard to find these days between work, school and now the house hunting we've added to the mix. I don't know what happened this evening but Sketchy Thursdays sure helped me kill my evening of free time! I even managed to watch Grey's AND Private Practice while doing all the fussy cutting on this page! Ahhh I love it though :)

Sketchy Thursdays 4.29

I was thrilled to win this kit from Life Preservers (thanks ScrapFit!) It figures that it was the only kit from March that I hadn't ordered from LPS and it's the first one I dug into after receiving them. Im being rushed by the hubs but this is based on the 4.29 sketch at Sketchy Thursdays. Hope everyone had a lovely NSD yesterday!!
