My son TJ is a closet music star. Literally.  He turned half of his bedroom closet into a recording studio.  He writes his own songs and records them.  He even does music videos, filming in the house and around the neighborhood, sometimes just by himself and sometimes with friends.  His high school has an annual talent show and he has auditioned and performed in the show for the past 2 years.  This layout is of him at this year's show.

I actually got a few layouts done this weekend.  Hopefully the sun will come out tomorrow and I can take some photos and share them with you.

Thanks for stopping by,

Big Boy Toys

Who said grown men are too old to play with inflatables???  My husband text me these pictures of him on the golf course with Golfzilla.  Golfzilla is a giant inflatable green dinosaur with a big mouth and holes in his hands. Golfers try to hit their golf balls through the holes and into his mouth. I guess you're never too old...

A cyber friend of mine,  Renee Hagler, is on the design team for  Use Your Stuff Challenge Blog.   Their challenge this week is stickers, so I'm linking this up to the challenge.  I used a ton of golf stickers to embellish my title, photos and journaling block.  If you're like me and have tons of stickers to use,  check out their challenge this week.

Thanks for stopping by today.

I'm Back!!!!

Hi everyone, I'm back!!  I had to take a break from blogging and design teams for awhile due to some life issues. During my break I realized that life happens and we're always going to face some type of issues,  it's how we handle them that counts.  Slowly and surely my creative juices have started flowing again and I am excited to restart my blog.

I want to thank everyone that reached out to me during my absence to make sure I was ok. Even though I have not met many of you in person, it feels so good to know that I have cyber friends that are concerned about me.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Those of you that have know me for awhile remember when TJ was just a little one.  Well, he turned 17 in June and will be entering his senior year in the fall.  Today I'm sharing a layout from his birthday.

I did some reorganizing in my scraproom recently and have taken a lot of things out of their original packaging so I won't be adding any supply lists to my posts.  However,  if you'd like to know the manufacturers of any of the products I've used, just leave me a note in the comments and I'll try my best to let you know.

I'm linking this layout up to Your Scrapbook Place August Challenge - Anything But a Card.  I haven't participated in challenges in ages so we'll see how it goes...

I'm also linking up to this week's Word Art Wednesday Challenge.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you continue to follow me as I restart my blog journey.
