WOW!!!! It has been such a looooong time since I've been on here. I have moved across the country, bought a house for me and my son, and enrolled into school!!! PHEW! Thankfully I finally have some easy quarters and have been able to get back into the crafting world. I recently purchased the Cricut Explore Air and absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!!
But I digress, I am here to tell you about some fabulous giveaways over at Cathyplus5! Check out her blog and her wonderful projects and enter to win some goodies!!!
I will hopefully be back on with more tutorials with the new Cricut Explore Air and some projects I've been working on.
Thank you for stopping by and I cannot wait to start seeing more of you again!
This has been a crazy week studying for midterms. I apologize my post is so late so lets get right to it!
How You've Grown
We want to see how you've grown along the way of your scrapbooking adventures.
Here, I have the very first layout I ever did, 5 years ago!
I have the actual hat and booties from the picture on the page!
I was in the kitchen eating chocolate when my son came in and saw me. He said he didn't want any so I put the rest back in the fridge and went into the bedroom. All of a sudden my son comes RUNNING into my room and yells, " Mommy!!!! I ate all your chocolate that was in the fridge!" (in his sing-song voice) LOL!

Hi everyone!! It is PARTY time at Lasting Memories today!
We're celebrating Karen's
special day with a "Scavenger Hunt Birthday
Hop"! It's her 40th birthday tmw and what better way to celebrate
than to have a hop in blogland!
Before we get started, you better get yourself a
pen and paper because you're going to need it! There are 10 blogs in the hop and
each person has chosen an element to use on her layout. Your job is to find all
10 elements, write them down and choose FIVE to include in your layout!
Be sure to keep your eyes
open because we have sponsors as well as DT members giving goodies away. You may
have to do a little something more for the DT candy, so be sure to read every
Sound like fun?? We think so!!! Ok, lets get to it! You should have
arrived here from Claire and if you're just
coming by, start at Lasting
Memories because you don't want to miss a thing! You'll also find the
master hop list there too. For my layout today, I chose pockets for my
My son and I went to the beach, where we collected sea shells. On the bottom picture I have glued a mini magnifying glass to show how far out people could go to swim.
I have hidden journaling pockets everywhere! If you have been following me, you know I love my hidden journaling and pockets on layouts. I have four pockets on my page. Starting at top left, I have hidden journaling. I have glued, with Crystal Effects, a sea shell to all journaling spots. The next pocket I made with blue glitter paper and my score board. I used a blue mesh bag and placed our sea shells from the beach in this pocket.
Here is another hidden journaling pocket. I asked my son what his favorite part of this day was. He said it was swimming with Mommy! So this is what I wrote and placed in this pocket. Why should I have to write all my thoughts on these layouts?!!
Here is an up-close shot of the pocket of sea shells.
And guess what! I'm giving away some candy!! Just leave me a comment telling me how many pockets I have in my layout and what you like best! I'll be giving away a kit to make your very own summer layout!
Don't forget, for the grand prize you have to complete the hop, enter your layout using FIVE elements you've found a long the
way and be sure to comment that you've done everything!
Thanks so much for joining us! You're next stop is Darcy!
So I did my layout ahead of time to get ahead of the game.......HOWEVER.......I totally forgot to put up my post!! OMG!! I'm losing my mind!
Anyways, so we want to see 2's or 3's on those Layouts! 2 of something, 3 of something, pics, stash, journaling, or like I did, use the # 2 or 3.
Sorry for the delay and last minute notice! Remember we have a new challenge that starts EVERY SUNDAY!!! So go to Lasting Memories and link up with your layout! Be Sure to enter by Saturday night to win a fabulous prize!
I love scrapbooking and paper crafting! My passion is my son JaKobe. He is the light in my life and who I scrapbook about. He is also why I named my blog The Bookin Room. When I would be scrapbooking in my room, Daddy would tell him I was scrapbooking, but he couldn't say all of that! So he would say 'Momma in bookin room'! How cute is that?!
I also like to make cards, however, I do not do it often because I never give them out! Hopefully trying something new, such as this blog, I will get back into cards and lots of other crafts with paper!
I really hope everyone enjoys what I post and has some great feedback for me! Thank you so much for checking me out!
