I've had, no, I've taken a little extra down time this week! Last week was just busy, busy, busy, and usually I am not into that. So I needed a breather. And I spent some of the time (this is quite something for me) scrapbooking! I am so far behind on all my albums because I really have not been into it lately. Lately=for the last 3 years.

It isn't an easy transition from cards to pages with photos that is for sure. When I used to scrap all the time I would go to the store and get 2 of almost every paper I bought because I generally do 2 page layouts. With cards, I just buy one of the paper that I like. Thus I had some problems! I was wishing I had more of certain papers, but it just forced me to be more creative. I did get about 7 layouts done, minus a few journaling spots!

Now it's time for me to put it all away. My parents are coming to visit me for the week. Time to get down and dirty and whip this house back into shape again. How does it happen so fast?!

And it's my hubby's birthday tomorrow, so we are heading out for a minor league ball game. It's his birthday tradition, and I enjoy the time alone with him.

Have a good week all! I'm not sure when I will be able to slip back into here and write again. I'll leave you with a couple of photos that I took this week.

My hubby's birthday is Aug 9th! Baseball game? That sounds like fun!

It's super hot here so we'll be enjoying the outdoors, maybe go for a swim at the river.

Good for you for taking some time to relax...I'm going to do that soon too. I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed with everything!
