My last day in my twenties!! (and a scrappy RAK)

That's right! I turn the big 3-0 tomorrow :) I'm totally excited. It's no secret that I love my birthday! I'm not sad about it at all. After all, I've been married almost 7 years and have 3 kids...I feel AT LEAST 30, haha! Kevin and I are taking off for the day tomorrow and going to see Bon Jovi in concert. It's outside and I really hope it doesn't rain! It's been raining here for over a week! Blech! I'm excited about it either way :) Thanks to Mom and Dad for the tickets and for babysitting!!!!

Ok, I'm going to try to type quickly while the boys are out on an exploration with Grampie (complete with binoculars, science journals, and a picnic) and Bridget is napping. What's that sound...oh right,'s so unfamiliar!

Wow, can you believe it, I don't think I have anything to type. Ha! That doesn't happen often...

A quick cute Riley thing...he called his Freezie a Freezbie last night..heehee.

Kieran is getting more mischievous lately. I think the true terrifying threes are coming. Look out, I could be in trouble!

Bridget has been feverish the past couple of days, but I think she's feeling better today.

Ok, on to scrappy news. The cyber crop at Treasured was so much fun. I only got my challenge done and one other, but there is so much eye candy in the gallery that I'll have inspiration for weeks to come! My challenge was a Summer Blockbuster use a movie title or tagline as the titlle of your LO. Here it is...I used the tagline from Star Trek :)

This was the first wedding layout I've ever done.

I also did Aymee's Lazy Days challenge. To scrapbook things you love to do in the summer :) I love to just hang out and go to all the summer events...First of July, Kids fairs, etc. I always have to drag Kevin, but we always have fun in the end!

This was done using the my DT kit from TS! Love, love the bright colours!

I hosted the first scrapjack over at Let's Capture Our Memories (which, thanks to Kevin, we are all calling L-Com for short...sounds like a secret agency to me. Just call my Sydney :)). The reveal was last week. Sadly, my own layout isn't even finished, but the rest of the girls did an AMAZING job!! Check it out!

I also found out that I'm going to be a part of the L-Com sketch DT. Some of the girls are the same ones from the old Paws team and some are new, which we are totally excited about. We get started with our sketches and challenges July 1st! You can check out the blog here.

So, lots of scrappy goodness going on! I also got my DT kit from Scrap That! yesterday and I'm so excited to get working with it! The colours are so bright and summery! Also, stay tuned for Scrap That's blog hop in July!!

Ok, so, in honour of my 30th I'm offering up a RAK for all my scrappy friends! Just leave a comment on this post and I'll put your name in a draw for a birthday RAK from me!! Gotta love a birthday!! It's as fun to give gifts as to receive them!

Have a great weekend all and cross your fingers for no rain!!
