You can check out more little sneaks at the Webster's Pages blog at http://www.websterspages.typepad.com/.
And if you haven't already checked it out head on over to Webster's official site inspireME. Lots of amazing layouts and projects up in the gallery over there and it is a fun friendly site to hang out at.
In other news:
Zoe started swimming lessons this week. We opted for private lessons which cost twice as much as the regular ones but sooo worth the money. It is great to have all that one on one time. BUT this afternoon I got a call from someone at that college saying that they are having to cancel the whole first session of swimming lessons due to the new floor they had put in around the pool. It is super slippery and the lady said they had 6 people fall down today on it. Soooo, no swimming lessons until they get that fixed. Zoe was pretty bummed to hear that her swimming lessons were canceled but I guess it is better than slipping and breakin your bum huh!
John and I bought a new bed and it was delivered today so I am totally looking forward to going to sleep tonite on a soft cushy bed.
Today I scrapped Zoe's birthday picture which is a miracle in itself. I can't share it with you just yet cause it is for Bad Girls but I will post it when we get the go ahead :) Just the past couple months have I scrapped her previous birthdays. Here are a few of them.
I am still trippin over the fact that I have a 7 yr old. It seems impossible.
I hope you are all taking down notes for your fave things this week for Fave Five Friday! I have a few things down on my list already :)
Have a great night!

Yes people it is that time again. As the weeks go on, I find myself more and more excited for Five Faves Friday! I headed on over to my new found friend via Five Faves Friday and checked out what Kirsty Piper posted this morning. I love seeing the similiarities and the differences that we all share. So make sure to head on over to her blog and check out what she loved this week!
I am working on my Five Faves journal using the July Bad Girl Kit that I just got in the mail a few days ago. This kit is FANTASTIC. So I was glad I procrastinated on making my lil book.
Here are my five faves this week:
#1. Starting out my day with a cup of coffee and a Luna bar or tea cake. This morning I had the Orange Blossom tea cake which invited me to "Renew myself with a Luna moment of skin-revitalizing goodness". My skin doesn't feel any different yet but it was pretty tasty. VERY strong orange scent on this particular one. My all time fave Luna bar is still the Smores one though.
#2. My pink hydrangea turned PURPLE!!! I have always wanted to have a purple colored hydrangea and well dang it all if it didn't turn purple on its own. Check it out Jamie!
#3. Pacifica Blood Orange perfume. I can not describe how delish this perfume smells. For only 20 bucks this is a MUST have. And check out how dang cute the box is! I can't find it in myself to throw it away.
#4. Move on over Guitar Hero III, Mario Kart has made its way into my heart. I haven't laughed this hard in a LONG time. I feel like such a dork when I play this and I giggle like a school girl but OMG this game is hilariously fun. You were soooo right Leslie! One of these days we are going to have to battle it out on the online option. However in the heck that works. If you have a Wii and you don't have this game yet...get it! There is no way that you can't love it.
#5. My scrappy Fave of the Week is the NEW Wrangler line from Paper Trunk. I just got my DT box yesterday with this delish line in it. Carrie did a fabulous job designing this really versatile line. It will be so easy to use for either feminine or masculine layouts! Paper Trunk will not be attending Summer CHA but we are going to be having a super fun Birthday Blog Bash instead. I forsee myself giving away an entire set of this new line sometime in the near future as well ;) If you would like to get a closer look at the new Wranger line and Paper Trunks new addition to the family (Alphabet stickers in 6 new colors!) head on over and check out the Paper Trunk newsletter! Also there are a few days left to submit your entry for the Paper Trunk Guest DT challenge as well. Information can be found on the blog!
I leave you with a challenge. Post your five fave things of the week up on your blog. See how it feels. Test the waters a bit and then come on back here and link me up if you go for it!
Have a fabulous Friday all. I know mine is starting off just right :)

Now this must be some kind of record week for me because I saw not one but TWO movies this weekend. On Friday I went with some girlfriends to go see Sex and the City too! Now this was a show that I watched religiously on HBO. I cried when it was over. This movie totally brought closure to me. UNLIKE The Sopranos LOL! I loved every bit of this movie and I just may have to go back and see it again. I laughed, I cried, I loved! And now I sound like Roger and Ebert LOL. You can tell me to shut up anytime now. But if you haven't seen this movie yet, grab a girlfriend, go out for cosmos and see this movie but make sure you have 3 hours because it is about that long!
I haven't gotten anything scrappy done this weekend. I can see where it is going to be hard to get anything crafty done with summer going on. So I have no scrappy lil goodies to post but I did buy a few things this weekend. I received a gift certificate to Michael's and it was burning a hole in my pocket so I bought surprise surprise some more of the Amy Butler K&Co. die cuts and the fabric word strips. I can't stay away from Amy Butler. The woman is a creative genius! I am going to be making a little notebook to keep track of my fave things of the week and I am thinking some of these goodies will make their way onto my notebook.

1. Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup- good for the body and soul. I had it not only once but twice this week. When I was first feeling sick but could still smell and taste, I whipped up a batch myself and I have to say I did pretty dang good for my first attempt at it. My second time was delivered to me via Pammy Mac a few days ago. And I have to say that hers was better than mine ;). The chicken was fantastic in it and magically made me feel much better the next day.
2. Last Comic Standing-I love this show. Always good for a laugh and a scare at the same time.
3. Craftstylish- Both the magazine and the website. Pam dropped me off one of their magazines along with the soup and I have been visiting their website for the past 2 months or so, and well I have to say I am hooked. Crafts of all kinds on there and a great place to get alot of inspiration.
4. Musicplaylist.Net- This site is what is streaming in the awesome music that you are hearing now. I am totally addicted to this site. For a person who adored making mix tapes in high school, this is utter heaven for me. I have spent hours this week browsing around and listening to all kinds of songs and have relived my childhood a million times over. LOVE IT. You need to try it!
5. And my Scrappy Fave of the week- It is going to be a digi for ya ;)
I made a really cute gift for the secretary at the school using this kit from Weeds&Wildflowers at PrimaHybrid and combined it with some beautiful Prima Caliope paper and well forgot to take a picture so you will just have to pretend with me. The sign turned out beautiful and I thought she was going to cry. It was fun to do something hybrid this week. It had been a while.
In other news, our soccer season ends tomorrow. I am hoping our team has a good last game because the practices this week weren't so promising LOL. We are throwing a bowling party afterwards which all the kids seem excited about. So hopefully that will be bribe enough to keep their attention during the game.
And school is ALMOST OUT! A blessing and a curse at the same time ;). I always struggle during the summer trying to find things to fill up our time and that don't only involve Zoe and I doing things together. She tends to get super clingy when we spend days on end together so this summer I am trying to fill our schedule up with some activities that will give her some freedom to do some stuff with out me ie swimming lessons, art classes, heck maybe even going to vacation Bible school this year. Something, ANYTHING that gets her out there socializing with someone other than me.

And for a little jumpstart to give you some ideas, Bad Girl Ania created this fabulous layout. I love her style!
I also have to give a little shout out to Brandi for getting one of my fave layouts that she has made thus far picked up for the Showcase section in the Oct Scrapbook Trends. I can't wait to see it in print. And between Leslie, Brandi and I, someone had to represent LOL! So happy for ya B!
I am still sick and feeling like crap, so I haven't been creative this week at all but hopefully I will have some Trunky goodness to share with you later this week. We have been brewing up some fun things this past month, so be on the look out!
Have a great Wednesday and if you stop by today, SAY HI! I have got nothing else to do today but wallow in my own hackish, stuffy headed misery LOL
