Where has the summer gone?

It has been sooooo long since I have blogged....been so busy lately and just recently got back to my scrapbooking too. I missed it and it feels so good to be scrapping for me. Shelby is getting married this year and we have been so busy planning her beautiful wedding. It has been so much fun and we have got so much done. I still cannot believe she will be moving to Montana. I will miss her so much!! We really love Scottie and are happy for them. Chelsey starts high school Monday....can you believe it? In November she gets her permit....how is it my girls are growing up so fast. Charlie and I are getting old! LOL

Anyways, I resigned from Mosh Posh and Dreamgirls a couple of months ago....just could not handle everything with the wedding and needed the summer to spend with my family too. I did get the chance to go to CHA this year and met up with Tracey and had such a fun day with her....my first online friend that I got to meet. We had a blast and she introduced me to Glimmer Mist/Tattered Angels and I am now hooked!! Love that stuff!!

I also recently have lost quite a bit of weight. I had gained so much especially since my surgery last summer and I am so much happier and for the first time in years and I mean years.....I am wearing jeans.....size 10! I need to keep up with exercising...been slacking lately and work out more. It feels so good though and I definitely want to get to an 8 before Shelby's wedding.

A couple of layouts I have done recently of Shelby and Scottie.....these are some of the pictures I took of them....and I made two 12x12 albums...one for them and one for us.


Also a picture of Chelsey and I that we took of ourselves together! She is such a cutie and I love having her in my life.....and she is stuck being an only child for the next few years...so she has all our attention whether she wants it or not! LOL

Hope everyone hs had a wonderful summer!!

Dear Lisa,

Welcome back!

Way to go on the weight loss! I normally can take it off... but always fail at keeping it off!

I love the teal (is that the right color?) that you are using in your scrapbooking. As always... just beautiful!

I love meeting blogging buddies... such fun to meet kindred spirits!

I've been thinking about your little basket of albums and thought... that seems less daunting to me then a huge scrapbook... might start a basket for friends to look through.

Blessings!

Love that layouts and the photos are fantastic! I bet you're so excited for the wedding and congrats on the weight loss! You will be a stunning mother of the bride!

Well, hello! I've certainly missed you! I had a feeling your absence from blogland had to do with wedding plans and such! GOOD for YOU!!! And WTG on the weight loss! Could you send me a bit of your will power? I'm doing OK in the workout department and the eating thing is semi under control. But I'm obviously not doing as well as I thought. Can't shed a single pound to save my life! LOL!

Love your LOs as always. I've missed seeing all your lovely creations! The pic of you and your "only child" is just gorgeous! Beautiful mom and beautiful daughter!

Hope you have a wonderful week. Glad to have you back! xoxo L
