FINALLY! New stuff! :)

Ok, its been way too long since I've posted some new stuff! SORRY! So far our week here has been going good. Nothing much out of the ordinary. Potty training is still fun... ;) I found some Thomas the Tank undies, so I'm going to get them today to help entice Aaron to use the potty more! I am tired as usual, so that's nothing new! I work Monday-Saturday this week. So Sunday I will go to church then probably just REST! I'm hoping to at least get Aaron's potty page scrapped! Next week I have my 6 month check-up for Alex plus I'm having a HUGE yard sale!! Really trying to get the house ready for Alex, so we have lots of stuff that needs to go! Plus a few extra dollars in my pocket can't hurt anything! We have pretty much all of the "big" stuff for the baby, but we do need to get a new playpen because ours was ruined when Aaron's old babysitters house caught on fire. So hopefully I will make enough money to get a new one! Really getting excited to meet Alex, but August seems so far away!

Here are some new goodies I've gotten recently. I didn't need anything new, but I've been a little emotional lately with all these crazy pregnant hormones, and shopping does make me feel better! :) I got a cute little baby boy paper pack in the $1 bin at Target. I got the tinsel ribbon and the 5 ribbon spools at our local ribbon outlet for 10 cents each! The 2 packs of American Crafts ribbon and rub on letters came from Big Lots for $2 each! I finally got the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder and the My Community cart I've been aching for from Custom Crops! CAN'T WAIT to get some crafting done with it!

At Happy Scrappers this past Saturday, we all brought some craft items and had a yard sale! It was great! I got a few magazines for a quarter, a really neat clip art book, and the cutest SU! set called "Rainy Days". I wasn't feeling the best that day, so I only stayed a few hours, but they were a great few hours! I love getting together with the girls for the day! Such a nice vacation from life!
Here are a few layouts I made 2 weekends ago. Got to scrap Aaron's birthday pages which was fun. Can't believe my sweet pea is 2! We didn't have a big party this year because I haven't felt well, plus Jamie's grandmother passed away 2 days before Aaron's birthday, so we didn't really feel much like a party. We did get him a cake though and shared it with my grandparents! He also got lots of presents since he's SPOILED ROTTEN!!

Supplies: Patterned paper, circle stickers, present and cake stickers-Pebbles Inc.; "Aaron is"-K&Co. chipboard; Birthday Boy-My Minds Eye; Striped and polka dot ribbon-American Crafts; 2 cut with Zooballoo cart and embossed with Mosaic Cuttlebog die.
This was another page I did a few weekends ago. VERY simple, but that's ok! These were the pics of the kids with the Easter Bunny, which was Aaron's first time meeting him!
Supplies: Cardstock; American Crafts blue rub on letters; Patterned paper-Doodlebug; Circle cut with George; Bunny cut with Doodlecharms; miscellaneous ribbon; Prima stack with a MM crystal brad in the center.
These last 2 layouts were done this past weekend at HappyScrappers! I finally scrapped these pictures from our visit to a local zoo last summer!
Supplies: Grass paper-Karen Foster, pop dots, Zoo die cuts-Reminisce (I think!).
These are the pics from my little monster when he snuck into the donuts a few months ago!

Supplies: Paper (says "I can sometimes resist temptaion, but never mischief!)-Reminisce, Letter stickers-TLC. Left that blank space towards the bottom for journaling!

Well that's all of my new stuff for now. I am hoping to scrap a little this weekend, plus I want to start on my new project-the table I took all of these photos on. It was a yard sale special! It is all wood with 2 chairs. The woman was handpainting it but never got finished. So I am going to redo it. Think I'm going to do it in primary colors and Modge Podge some cuts from my new cartridge on it! Trains, planes, cars, and trucks. Then I'm going to put Aaron's name on one chair and Alex's on the other! Can't wait to start on it! Will post pictures of my progress! Hope you're all having a GREAT week! Thanks for stopping by to visit!
