Oh my, it has been a while since I've last updated my blog, hasn't?! My apologies friends!! This week life has been busy to say the least!

First off, happy scrappy talk....

This the latest lo I've created using the Bella Blvd line, isn't the most fabulous camping line ever!!!??? I love this picture of the family, it was our first time camping this past summer, using our brand new camper and the site was fabulous, hence the title of the layout. I really miss camping (I honestly didn't think I would love it so much - it would be even better if I could have access to the internet!) and every week Dan and I talk about it. We are already planning our summer camping trips! YAY!!!


CHA is right around the corner, I love this time of the year!!! It's the best! One of my favorite company has released some previews of their new collections, check out the new Jillibean Soup papers!!! It is sooooooooooo fabulous!

Old World Cabbage Soup
Chicken Noodle Soup
I want it all now!!!!!!!!!!

Make sure to check out the Jillibean Soup blog here, they are having fabulous giveaways!!!


Now onto the not so fun news, Dan lost his job yesterday. Seems that the economy is still hitting hard some people and we've had to suffer too. But we are trying to remain positive, things happen for a reason, when one door closes another opens up. We have wonderful friends and family that are their to support us and I know that things will be ok!!! It's just hard after being at the same company for 9 years to be let go!

That's all for tonight peeps! Thanks for the visit. I'll be back with more projects this weekend. :)

I love to go camping too! I wish we had one of those pop up campers like you.I think it would be more comfy than lying on the ground.I wish my hubby shared my enthusiasm.Love your layout and all the layers.

I am so sorry to hear about Dan's job.I have no idea what we would do if this ever happened.I am sure that something good is on the horizon for him though :)

I am so sorry to hear about Dan's job. I hope that he finds another position soon. These are such tough economic times, and it's so sad when companies let good employees go.

As for that page, it is fantastic! I haven't used many Bella Blvd products, but this is making me think twice about that!
