What I have been up to...

Well this weekend seemed like it was full of stuff & at the same time I feel like I got nothing done. Do you ever feel that way?


Friday night I was on my own. The kids were away & David was on a business trip. He wasn't due in until after midnight so I decided to pack up some scrap stuff & head over to my friend Gabi's house. She had snacks, made me dinner, & was a fabulous hostess. I got four layouts done & we brainstormed some new challenge ideas for Scrapdragons.


I can't share my creations quite yet as they are for upcoming challenges. So you will have to check Scrapdragon & Scrappin' Mojo over the next few weeks if you want to see them.


Here is one that I can share...


I made this for an American Idol scrap contest I am in over at Scrap-tastic. I am so loving this challenge. Some of my favorite layouts of all time have come out of these challenges. Don't you love when that happens.

Saturday, David & I went over to the Neshanic Valley golf course & hit the range for a bit. After hitting a number of balls we played nine holes. It was a bit chilly, but I just love getting out.

That evening we headed off to see David's mom & took her out to dinner. It was nice to see her. We spent some time going through some of David's grandmother's things. She lived in her home for something like 50 years & there are all kinds of treasures stashed away everywhere. David & I took on the project of having the old family slides converted over to CD's to share with the family. David's grandfather was a professional photographer & there are some amazing photos in the collection. I am so excited to see what gems are in the collection.


Sunday we had plans to play golf again in the morning, but when we woke up it was only 20 degrees. That is just too cold for me to go play golf. I don't even like to ski in that kind of weather. So we ended up taking a drive out to the Woodbury Commons Premium Outlets in New York. It was a nice drive & fun to get out. Plus I got a really good deal on a Coach bag...gotta love that!

So that is about it. Today I am going to clean, do laundry, & work on laying out the ad booklet for my Rotary Club's upcoming Casino Ball. What are you all up to?

Hi Lauren, wow! you did have a busy weekend. I do agree that 20 is way too cold to be outside golfing!! lol! love the layout you did!! can't wait to see the rest - i've been scrapping a bit again YEAH!! things are getting a bit easier - thank goodness for pt and nerve blocks - still need 1 surgery, but hopefully not for some time and the dr wants to permanently disable a few nerves in my neck. but, not going to think about that now - spring is finally here and it is 50 and sunny out so i am going to enjoy the day!!!
