Summer Love


My Babylove came home to me this summer! I’ve been enjoying spending time with David since he’s been back from deployment. I’ve enjoyed losing myself in the long summer days. Spending time hiking, relaxing, painting and trying to beat him at backgammon (although he always finds a way to kick my butt).

Wow I can’t believe summertime is almost over. I hope you have enjoyed every moment of it with your friends, family and the ones who mean the most to you in your life.

Every moment of life is precious and that’s why we scrapbook the moments that means the most.

A couple weeks ago, we went hiking in Colorado at the  Garden of the Gods and it was so magical! I wish we had more time there but sometimes a short trip is better than a long one.

Guess Who Won First Place at The Halloween Contest?

I was pretty excited to win the first place prize at my companywide Halloween contest!

I was a regulation rapper. For those of you who don’t know what a regulation rapper is… that’s ok because I totally made it up. You know that old 80’s rap song called O.P.P?


I made a parody to this rap song called F.O.C.

(For the record, I’m not ‘down with O.P.P. I was shocked at what the actual lyrics to this song meant! As a kid I just liked the beat.)

During our Halloween contest and parade I got up in front of our entire company and sang the rap song.

  • You down with F.O.C?
  • Ya you know me? 
  • A.K.A “Friend of Compliance
  • To the B, to the C, to the DD
  • Reg Z, well that’s not that simple….
  • It’s not from the NCUA
  • It’s from the CFPB
  • What up, yo!

Well it was super funny in person!

I also made a really awesome photo booth in my office and took pictures of my AMAZING co-workers. It was so much fun! I would love to create a cool Photo Booth at Scrap Diva Retreats.


Would you enjoy a photo booth at Scrap Diva Retreats?

I think it would be fun to have dress up stuff like silly glasses, hats and props. This is something I’ve wanted to do for a long time, I just haven’t had any free time.

Did you dress up for Halloween? Did you take some cute pictures of your kids and/or grandkids? I would love to see all your pictures.
