Things that are paper scraps Prompt 1

Yeah, so a while back I won a Pretty Paper Party Class that my friend Paige had a giveaway for back in October of last year. Since it's online and a forum you don't really need to sit down and do it in a month. You can take your time. Obviously I have been taking my time... Because I'm now on prompt 1. Lame right. Well I gotta start somewhere, so obviously it's the beginning. I haven't posted many of my layouts that I have completed, mainly because I am too scared they aren't as elaborate as most scrappers. Shimelle gave us 4 layouts and we can copy them or just have fun and create our own variations of them. But, the goal of the paper party is to use the scraps that we have.
I tried not to be simple with them, and add more than what she gave, but it's so dang hard for me. ugh!

This seriously is my first card that I have actually made that looks cute. The majority of the paper is from the teen line from AC

Then the goggie wanted to join the fun! :)

Tutu's & All

This one I thought was my best one. Even Chase agreed.

Photobucket
This one was my first one, then I slowly started getting better. lol

Girls Camp. That's really what all of these layouts are about. I just picked some pictures that I had in a pack and cut them up! :)

Photobucket
I just used regular pen on all these. No use using a fancy pen right?  

Photobucket
Then you get a really cute goggie! Who wanted to be in most of the pictures.

Then lets do a close up because he's just so darn cute! :) and smiling even! :)

What do you think? I really don't know what the average is when it comes to creating scrapbook layouts. I want to get better and be a better crafter but sometimes I feel like I rush too much and then I don't get the best that I wanted out of it. Or the design in my head isn't what I wanted it to be. Does that ever happen to you? Or am I just the only one? 

P.S. I have some exciting stuff to tell you about. I think it's a great idea and can't wait to share. But that will have to be a different post.  :)

Things that you may think you are too old for

Easter Egg Teeasure Hunt. Let's see, "may the odds be ever in your favor." :) "find the golden egg" and the "amazing Easter race." If there is any cheating in the game then the grand prize goes to the game maker. :) Yup totally for adult children. That's what we get when we don't have kids in our family. Here's some pictures from today. Logan even said he was going to beat both Chase and I.
Photobucket
These were the clues, all in purple eggs for me. blue eggs for Chase, and green eggs for Logan.
Photobucket
At the beginning right before the game makers gave the "ready, set, go" Logan said "I'm gonna totally beat you guys" well guess who has the golden egg in front of them? :) Chase was even telling him where some of the eggs were too. Man I'm good! :)
Photobucket
We got these bags and they had some Easter treats for us too.

The reason we did our Easter events with family Saturday was because Chase was leaving for Maryland today. :( Yup he totally went to my favorite place in the whole world.

So this is the goggie from today. taking advantage of a husband not being here. Plus he needs some cuddle time too. :)
Photobucket
He misses Chase already. I mean I do too, don't get me wrong. Hurley was waiting for Chase to come in with me today when I got home from church. Yup He's been staring out the window waiting for him, shaking.

Can't wait for Wednesday night to get here! ahhh
