OK, OK... I know this is supposed to be Scrapbook Monday, but either blogger or my internet provided has been testing my patience! Every time I would try to upload a picture, it would either be cut in half and pieced backwards, or just missing part of the picture. So today, I used the connection at work and everything worked perfectly!
This is another MDS page I created. I would still rather create hands on, but it is getting easier to make my pages look a little better. There are completed templates where you can just drop in pictures, but I'm obsessed enough to feel like that's 'cheating' if I post it on my blog! I used some of the pictures from our big hickory tree for this layout and decided to make this an 8 1/2 by 11 page instead of my typical 12 by 12. I do love how easy it is to resize everything in MDS!! Unfortunately, I did not make a list of what I used on this and honestly, I don't remember now!
This past weekend, my girls and I had a little getaway with my sister. We went to Gatlinburg, TN to attend a youth conference that is associated with my sister's church. The speakers were wonderfully motivational & thought provoking, and there was a lot of fun and games too! Of course, we couldn't go to Gatlinburg without shopping!! Lots of walking, lots of reflecting, and most importantly, lots of girl time! I have to admit that it was pretty good to sleep in my own bed again on Sunday night, but after looking at the pile of laundry on Monday, I was wishing for another break!! Why can't someone invent self-cleaning clothes?!
Just a reminder that today is the last day to sign up for my blog candy give away found here! The baker's twine is all ready to be packed and mailed to one lucky commenter (is that a word?!). So if you haven't already, be sure to leave me some love on that post!!!! Have a wonderful Leap Day!!
