I hope that you all had a great week and I hope you're super pumped about having an amazing weekend! I've got a trip to the beach planned for my family this weekend. We're going to go looking in tide pools and have a BBQ for lunch. The kids love to BBQ hot dogs and have macaroni salad.

What a busy week it's been! I haven't stopped for a minute! Last weekend the whole family went out to my hometown for my cousin's wedding. Actually, he got married in Mexico and they came home to have a reception/supper/party and it was the most fun I had in years! We had a babysitter for the kids and we stayed out dancing until 3:30 in the morning. It was so much fun. I got to spend lots of time with family that I haven't seen in such a long time and I also got to have the best date-night with the Hubby!

When we came home on Sunday, we had a great supper and got the kids to bed. They were so exhausted. :) Then for the rest of this week, I've been spring cleaning! It hate spring cleaning but it's something that has to be done. The first step is grabbing a few garbage bags and going from room to room and throwing out all of the accumulated junk that the kids have poked under beds and in closets. Then it's time to organize and clean out the storage room. Once we finished all of that, we started washing sheets and blankets and comforters! I can't wait to get in the bed tonight with my clean and fresh comforter! Tomorrow, it's dusting behind and under everything and cleaning all the floors and washing walls. Then on Sunday... It's Easter! We're having a turkey dinner and spending the day together as a family. We have an egg hunt planned for after dinner and then we're going to tell the kids the Easter story. It'll be a beautiful day.

I was sitting at my computer last week and I was wondering what I would have to release this week and I was stumped! I was so busy I didn't have time to really finish anything that I was working on so I started looking through some of my older kits that I had just recently gotten requests for. At the top of the list was SISTER and BROTHER. So, I played around and tweaked them up a bit and here they are for release! I just loved these kits so much and already had several layouts created with them. Check the previews out below and then run on over to my store HERE and snag them for 25% off this week!

It's April! Where is this year disappearing? It amazes me just how fast the time is ticking by. One thing I'm so happy about is that Spring is starting to peek it's head out and brighten things up around here! I can't wait to be able to start going to the park with the kids so they can get out and run around. It's been a long winter and they're itching for some fresh air! With that being said...

It's Buffet time again at GingerScraps and we've got some fun stuff for you! Our theme this month is definitely one of my favorites! It's all about spring and playing outside, enjoying the fun things to do as the weather starts to warm up. HAPPY HOPSCOTCH is so much fun and I just know that you're going to love it.! I've got 5 packs on sale for only $1 each this week from April 1st-5th! Check out the previews below and be sure to hurry on over to my store to snag your packs HERE.

Included in the element pack are: 1 banner, 1 bird, 2 bows, 8 buttons, 5 flowers, 8 frames, 4 journal tags, 1 leaf, 5 puzzle pieces, 3 ribbons, 3 ricracs, 4 ribbon flower (wordarts), 1 scatter, 1 staple, 1 string, and 1 swirl.

I also created a few layouts using my Happy Hopscotch collection. The first layout features Emma about to go on the slide at her favorite park. The second layout features Aiden having a blast on the swing. I just love how bright both of these layouts turned out!
