WHAT has Carolyn been up to?

WHEW!  Well.....I'm finally back.  I wasn't kidding when I said I was going to disappear for a while to work on my contest album was I?  And, YES, that is what I have been up to all this time.  Of course life had it's wonderful way of getting in the way of my scrappy time.

I spent an entire week down and out when I came down with strep & a double ear infection on Memorial Day Weekend.....UGH!!!!  Then of course came the rush of the end of the school year.  Wonderful news, my youngest daughter (the 8th grader) tried out for the girls golf team and will be on the team for her freshman year!!  My middle child (the 16 yr old) started drivers ed....YIKES!!!  Right now that mostly means that I have taken 2 1/2  hours out of each morning to transport her to and from - ok, what that really translates into is that I have spent the last two weeks shopping for 2 hours a day (might as well use my time wisely right?)  Good news on that front is that I am all set for both my trip to Florida AND for the up coming weddingS.

Yes, I said weddingS.  My son and his fiancee' are getting married on Sunday, July 21, 2013.....and brother is getting married on Saturday, July 20, 2013!!!  Kinda crazy but my brother's fiancee' went to book the wedding place and that was the first and only weekend available until  after November, and after getting a go ahead from my son and his bride-to-be she booked it and set about QUICKLY planning a wedding.  So, after CTMH Convention (I leave on Monday -and I am creating and scheduling several posts) I will be in full blown weddingS weekend mode.

YES, I did finish my contest album....and I am so stinkin' pleased with the results.....absolutely a 'labor of love' on this one.  Since it IS for a contest I won't post any pictures till after the turn in deadline (7pm, Wed June 26)  check back on Wednesday night to see ALL the pictures from my 2013 Contest Album Entry

For The Rest Of Your Life

So, I FINISHED with FIVE whole days to spare (breathe, pack etc....).  Then I realized that I MIGHT still be able to get a few swaps done......hmmmm?????


  1. stopping by from Deezy does it. Thanks for stopping on my blog.

  2. Hello Carolyn. I'm glad you stopped by my blog Life - Up, Down and Sideways during the Deezy's Pimped out blog. I see that you live in Deer Park, Texas and just started laughing like a loon. I lived in Deer Park in 1971 to 1974 and went to the Deer Park Kiddy Corral for a couple of years before moving to Utah.

    I wish you well on the scrapbook contest and I'll check back on Wednesday to see how that turned out. I'm now registered to get your email update feeds.

    My original blog Cuttin' and Stampin' has been turned into a weekly challenge blog. You should stop by sometime and enter some of the challenges. I would love to see more of your creations.
