It's Sunday...how much can I get done today???

Too bad that I can't just hang out, read a book, watch TV...you know, mindless stuff! Our weekends are always full of stuff to do...laundry, cleaning, more laundry, posting the checkbook...then there's the digital photo project that is ONGOING!!! I love using a digi camera, however, getting photos uploaded to Shutterfly to order just never seems to happen...so I have been uploading photos all weekend, starting with July 2008 and moving forward...gotta get caught up so I at least have a backup of our photos in case our computer crashes...I also need to burn backup CD's of our photos...but that is for another weekend! ha,ha
Back to what I need to get done today...I have been promising my son that I would get his MILFORD patch sew onto the back of his letter jacket for several weeks now...so that has got to be PRIORITY!!! (& here I sit typing in a blog entry...) He'll never know!

So here's a few shares & then I will get BUSY!!!!
This first layout is one of my FAVORITES! I participated in my first ever online crop...if you haven't done this yet, you have got to give it a try! It was so much fun...chances to win, challenges, messaging...lots of fun! & now you know why my TO DO list is so long! LOL!!!
The online crop was at www.scrapbookcircle.com. The challenge was to create a layout using vintage photos and the title "The Way We Were"...so I asked my mom to bring me some of when she & dad were dating, etc. I used the Feb. '09 sketch @ www.scrapjazz.com and here are the results! I love it! I have since framed the layout & gave it to mom & dad for Valentine's Day!




The next layout was also created during the online crop at www.scrapbookcircle.com. This challenge was to use the sketch provided if so inclined and to use either beach related photos or colors. These photos are a few of my favorites from our family trip to San Diego last summer. This was the first trip to the beach/ocean for the boys...they loved it!


Finally, this layout was inspired by sketch #7 at www.52weeks52sketches.com. I just discovered this sketch website through the forum at www.scrapbookcircle.com and I love it! Their sketches are awesome...& they have a giveaway each week! Who doesn't love the chance to win scrappy goodies??? This layout features my youngest son as he rides the bench during his 6th grade year...he suited up for varsity, but did a lot of bench warming...thought this photo turned out great and the title was inspired by some OLD sports stickers that I found in my stash "Play me...or trade me". Too funny and the perfect title!!!


I've got lots to share on Project 365, but better get some other things done first! Maybe will be back later today with that post...until then, ENJOY your day!
