I got 4 more rooms in the house organized and cleaned thoroughly over the weekend. I know, I know. Doesn't sound like such a great accomplishment but you should've seen those rooms before! I'm not a naturally neat person so this is HUGE for me. My goal is to have the rest of the rooms in the house organized and cleaned by this weekend. (We'll see...) I've devised a plan for keeping the kids on top of cleaning up their toys throughout the day and even for transferring toys from one room to the next. We'll see how that goes, too.
Scrap That Poetry. This time we've got "Footprints In the Sand" by Mary Stevenson.
I feel like this layout isn't finished but after hours of trying to figure out what was missing, I couldn't seem to find anything that fit. I even have some of the La Jolla Beach sand that I wanted to put on the layout but couldn't seem to fit it in. Oh, well. I'd also planned to color in the metal heart ribbon slide but decided the raw metal color looked best.
We've got a full day ahead of us of basketball camp and cheer & tumble class. But first we're heading on over to Michael's to pick up the kids' very own scrapbooks. We'd decided right before summer started that they were each going to start making their own scrapbooks. I promise I will let them make the pages as they want and will not interfere (mostly, lol). And now they're just that much more excited and inspired because of Joseph who played along with the Favorite Things Favorite Shoes Challenge. He's 6 also and he has his own blog! So, of course, the kids are going to have their own, too. They plan to make their debut with their Favorite Things Favorite Toys entries!!!! I'll keep you posted.
We would LOVE to have you come play with us on Scrap That Poetry!!! You have until the end of the month to play along with "Footprints In the Sand". Check out what the DT made for your inspiration. They are fabulous! And many of the layouts have very touching stories behind them so be sure to click on over to each blog. I'm going to rant a little here... we have over 130 followers on STP right now and consistently over the last few challenges have been getting only 5 or 6 players. Seriously? Come on, people! I CHALLENGE you!!! Play along with us!!!! ;o)
Have a great day!!
