.....*{Creative Scrappers Sunday}*.....

....good morning, hope this Sunday is going to be a good one wherever you are <3...we're enjoying the beatiful weather and smiling in our flip flops....well i am anyways....there's a very inspiring sketch up at CREATIVE SCRAPPERS...created again by Supa-Talented Aphra Bolyer....the Creative Team worked on some really beautiful reveals for you! Make sure you check 'em out and leave some love...for some of the team, it's their last reveal with Creative Scrappers. I will miss working with such a talented group of girls, but am excited to begin working with all the new girls on the new team :0)

Here's my reveal, my picture is kinda janky on the left, i heavily distressed the edges....i think i made it uneven...not sure why what happened there...but it was a really fun sketch to work with.

...*{hoooorrayyy for winter}*...

...said in my best sarcastic voice with a fake smile slapped on for emphasis...i'll add a sarcastic "awesome" in there....not like awesome! like my two friends Rachel and Bree....*{Old Man Winter}* has kept the Morgan's perpetually since the middle of January....and so this post is a day late....due to my acute sinusitis and infection...sad because i used to really love you Winter...this year...not so much... fun and exciting news....*{THE PAPER VARIETY}*...has a brand new challenge to inspire you this week. make sure you head on over and check it's all things cupcakes this week! ....and really if cupcakes don't make you happy, you're either a dude reading this or you are on a diet....

...*{it's QUITE the WinDy WeDNEsDAy}*...

....and i can't believe i am saying this....but i am actually happy we didn't get hit with any of the crazy snowpacolypse weather...i know crazy right?!?! those of you who really know me, know that i am a big snow loving dork! i am not quite sure why those words are coming out of my brain and onto this post...however....i have really enjoyed the rain :0) maybe i haven't completely lost it!

....we have been crazy busy...the kiddos are keeping busy with school, friends and dodging illness...which i think will probably change soon since all of their friends seem to have been stricken with some crazy cold or other fun stuff...january was a complete blur...seriously....we're already in february and i have no idea how it went by so fast...and february is going to blow by too seeing as how we have so much going on this month....though we do have a great week long break --- which *{ROCKS}*...i think i may do a countdown.

...enough with the jibber jabber....i want to tell you about something exciting happening over at *--{INSPIRED TO SCRAP}--*....there is a FANTASTIC...I mean FANTASTIC's called Inspired by Sketches...happening right now....and you can still sign up and join in....
