Two In One Week........ Shocking!!

So........... I've joined a group of girls who are going to encourage each other to share our creations, and keep up our blogs! So far so good!

I have had a crazy week including a quick trip to Vancouver for the weekend. Brayden had a fabulous opportunity to participate in a hockey skills camp, at GM Place. He was so excited to be skating on the the same ice that the Canucks had just skated on the previous night.

I've got a busy week ahead of me, I'm already booked for 2.5 days of teaching, I've got meetings and doctors appointments, plus I have to plan for this coming weekend when we are once again on the road for sports. Carsyn and Butch are headed to Victoria for Carsyn's first "Junior Development" soccer tournament. Brayden and I are headed to Gold River (joy oh joy) for a full day of hockey - minimum 3 games possibly 4!

Wednesday night I will be out at a late night crop with Megan. She Run's With Scissors - one of our LSS holds a "Crop n' Shop" every Wednesday - we've been a couple of times and have decided to do it every night that we can.

I think the biggest excitement for us this week is Tuesday marks one full year since we received our finalization papers for the boys. In some ways it seems hard to believe, and in other ways it just seems like they have been with us forever!! We will spend Tuesday at Butch's mom's house where we are having a huge family dinner - complete with one of Butch's best friend's family. Bill has come home for a visit from Toronto - this will be the first time he has met our boys. It is usually a fun night - how can it not be fun when there are 20 people around for dinner.

Well, I need to find something scrappy to put on here... so here we go.. I only started scrapbooking last July. Here is my very first layout I did. It is a 2 page, 8x8 layout that I did for a swap. I loved it so much I almost didn't send it away!

So....... not a lot of scrappy stuff... I have more on my camera that need to be downloaded - but I've lost my cord and my hubby is on the laptop where I could just put the SD card into to download. I'll do those another day.

Thanks for looking!

Those are great pages for your first layout! You should see my first pages...OMGosh!!!!
I hope you have a great week!

I agree with April these are great for your first layout. I'm scared to try scrap booking, at least with the cards I only have a little bit of space to fill. The amount of work to make a spectacular layout intimidates me. I look forward to see more of your work..maybe it'll inspire me to do one!
