finally-back-hip-to-the-hop!!!

omg!  i have been gone for what seems like FOREVER!!  i literally have not scrapbooked for THREE MONTHS!!  shut up!  it sucked.  on june 30th we had torrential downpours and record rain amounts.  megan and i were trying to get home from basketball through flash floods and it took forever.  seriously, cars and trucks were up to their DOORS in rain water.  it was crazy.  meanwhile, back at the ranch (style house), we lost power...and our sump pump went out (we live country style)...and our (finished)basement FLOODED.  it was crazy.  we lost a bunch of stuff and had to get all new flooring.  the great part was that my scrapbook room had very little damage (besides the floor).  the bad news is we had to pack everything hastily away in boxes for the whole rest of the summer while we repaired and replaced.  did I mention "the whole rest of the summer"...you know, when i DON'T WORK (because I am a teacher) and have bunches of time to scrapbook?!?  yeah.  this summer nada.  zip.  zilch.  no scrapbooking.


while we are still putting in new baseboards and such, most of the work is finished and i can (slowly) unpack my scrapbook stuff.  BOO-YAH!!!  here is what i completed last night:

Ugh....I feel your pain. I won't even start on the trials of the kind of "country-style" living we endure! Ha!! Still love living here, though. :)

Great that you can finally sit down and scrap a little. There's always next summer.......

So sorry that you had the water damage. Made me think that I need to run downstairs and pick all of my scrappy stuff up higher, but that won't happen. Love your layout!
