Pixel Scrapper August 2017 Blog Train - Good Vibes

Well Hello!  Welcome to August!  Can you believe it's getting close to the end of summer...well for some of us anyway.  We probably won't see cooler weather here in Florida until around mid-October (bummer).  I guess I can't complain too much since the tropics have been pretty quiet so far this summer (knocking on wood).  

I have been working on this kit for most of June and the entire month of July simply because I had zero ideas flowing through my head.  I've had plenty of time to ponder ideas but I've been enjoying time outdoors since I lost my job at the beginning of June.  The company that I worked for (for 12 years) decided to close our billing office and redistributed the work among two of the other billing offices in Texas and Kansas.  It was kind of a bummer since I really enjoyed working there and I really miss all of my co-workers.  The good thing is the type of work we do is abundant so the possibility that some of us may work together again some day are pretty great.  I had already planned a vacation for the week of July 4th so to have this happen before my vacation made it difficult for me to job hunt.  Not too many companies want to hire someone who will be taking a vacation within the first month of being hired....so I waited.  

I started a new job on July 24th....that was the longest I have been out of work in over 20 years and it felt great.  I needed that time off.  I feel refreshed and my batteries are recharged 😊

This is what I have for you for the August blog train.  Enjoy the rest of your summer!

Pixel Scrapper July 2017 Blog Train - Summer Lovin'

I am on a roll with the summer kits.  I hope you haven't had too many that you can't find some use for this one.  My favorite part of this kit is the string of lights.  I love those Edison style lights that are popping up everywhere.  If I had a deck in my back yard, I would definitely have these.  I was running out of ideas for summer so the elements are a little random.  I also opted to not create any solids since most kits on the train have solids.  One could only need so many solids in the same color right?  Anyway, I hope you find room in your scrapbooking arsenal for this great stash of summer kits.

Pixel Scrapper June 2017 Blog Train - Nature Escape

Hello everyone!  Here we are...6 months into 2017!  If it wasn't so hot here in Florida, I wouldn't believe it was already June.  I have been so busy at work since my promotion, sometimes I don't even turn on the computer once I get home.  I liked how these colors worked together, they seemed to have that "calming" affect on me so I was able to work a little here and there to get this done.  I brainstormed but couldn't really come up with anything more creative.  But...thankfully I was on the right path with my idea so the items in this kit should blend well with some of the other kits in the train.  There are some fantastic contributions this month.  I hope you all enjoy.

Pixel Scrapper May 2017 Blog Train - Destination Florida

Wow!  I actually finished before the 1st!  I haven't done that in quite some time.  We had an open palette so I decided to use the same color palette from last month and continue on with the tropical theme.  The theme for May is "Destination" (hometown, state, etc...).  I chose Florida because that is where I live and have called this my home for the past 23 years.  I was born and raised in Ohio but when I scoped out the planning thread there were already several "Destination Ohio" kits so I didn't think one more was needed.  I was surprised to see so many Ohioan's in the forum though.  

Anyway, last month I gave you the fish, now you get the birds and palms.  I am in love with the paper I used for the background in my layout.  I think it turned out really nice.  I have included a few other papers which are under the banner in the preview, There isn't much to this kit so I hope it will be useful for something.  If I find time (no promises), maybe I can make up some buttons, bows, ribbons, frames to add to it later.  It's beach season so I plan on spending a lot of time at the beach this summer.  We went to the beach so much last summer, lugging everything from the car down to the beach by hand...I am prepared this summer!  We bought a wagon to carry everything...water cooler, food cooler, towels, blanket, pop-up dome for a little shade, boogie boards, inter-tubes, air pump, sunscreen....you get the drift...there's a lot to haul.  This weekend is supposed to be in the 90's!

Pixel Scrapper April 2017 Blog Train - Raindrops and Rainbows

Hi!  Long time....no post.  Sorry about that.  Real life happens.  I do have something to share this month for the Pixel Scrapper Blog train though.  I do have to confess...my contribution may be a little off compared to everyone else.  We were given the color palette and instructions to keep in mind "watercolor" and "fantasy" so mermaids came to mind so I ran with it.

Hope you can use some of the items along with the other contributions over at Pixel Scrapper.

Pixel Scrapper January 2017 Blog Train - The Guys

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

I hope everyone had a great holiday!  Did you make any new resolutions for 2017?  I didn't....I never stick to them so I decided this year, I'm just going to roll with it.  Whatever happens....happens.  I joined a gym over 6 months ago and I try to get there every other day.  I always hit the treadmill and alternate the extra workouts (arms or legs).  I have been trying to concentrate on my arms because they are getting a bit saggy and my 16 year old made a comment to his dad about my "flabby" arms...so I have the motivation to take care of that!!  Sometimes I over-do it and can barely lift my arms but it WILL be worth it.  So...I am NOT calling this a resolution but more like motivation since both my son and hubby are lifting pretty heavy weights and bulking up so I refuse to be left behind on the fitness train, lol.

Here is my contribution to this months Pixel Scrapper blog train.  There are some really great contributions this month.  Since masculine kits are scarce, I thought this was a great idea and there are many different ideas on "The Guys" theme so I am sure you will find something among the many contributions to make some great pages.  You will find the link to download below and don't forget to stop by Pixel Scrapper to check out the rest.
