I didn't drop off the face of the Earth, but I think my scrapping mojo did. I'm hopeful that this will kick-start it though...
I'm back on the DT at Sketches: Creatively Yours!
I'm so excited to be back with Ali. Her work is amazing, just as her personality.
Please visit to see what the other designers did when you have time!
Here is my most recent layout:
You slept through it all, but at 1:51pm on August 23, we had an earthquake. B was on the computer playing on the American Girl website, and Z and I were playing Brain Quest. I initially thought it was a truck or motorcycle next door or a train out back, until Z asked what that noise was. I never before imagined an earthquake as being loud, but it definitely had a dull roar to it. After I few seconds, I said, “I think it’s an earthquake,” and B screamed. I didn’t think until afterwards that we should have headed to the downstairs bathroom, but we huddled together in the living room until it passed. It probably lasted 30-40 seconds, but I was grateful once I could tell it was subsiding. Daddy was at work and went outside after the plants and shelves started shaking. I can’t imagine living somewhere that this occurs often. Ridiculously, I once said that I wished I could be in a small earthquake just to know what it felt like… I hope that’s the only one that ever finds me. While it wasn’t terrifying, it definitely disturbed the big kids because there were lots of questions for the rest of the day about how earthquakes happen. Just days after the earthquake, Hurricane Irene went through, and we lost power for almost 2 full days… played LOTS of games on Saturday, lit candles, and made shadow puppets.

- I am Heather, a stay-at-home mom of 3 kids, ages 9 1/2, 7, and 3. I have been scrapbooking for about 9 years but I'm happy to say that my style has evolved quite a bit since the beginning. Most of my layouts are about the kids or our family, but I also treasure my scrapped recipes... it makes cooking WAY more fun! You can follow my blog by clicking "Follow" in the top left corner.
