Weeds & Dirt, Dirt & Weeds!

That's what I have been staring at the last couple of days. I just hate the look of dry, cracked, weed-filled dirt. BLECH!!! And since the weather has been really nice this week, I have been making a dent in the yardwork. A small dent, but a dent none-the-less. :D YAY!!!

BEFORE - blech! blech! blech! Makes me feel like dousing my skin in lotion! LOL!


Ahhhhh! I love it! It's like vacuuming! Instant gratification!

Yes, I'm strange. I'm weeding dirt. We don't have any plants or trees in our new yard. That won't happen until we sell the other house. But I have faith that if I keep working on it, it will be ready when it's time to dig those holes! Yeah! :D

I have a few new layouts for you, a crop announcement, and sneak peeks of the new Noel Mignon kit that will be going up for sale on Sunday. Oh, Nelly! You don't want to miss out on this one! TRUST ME!!!! It came to my house this week and I about had a heart attack at it's loveliness!!!!

What?! You want to see the sneaks first? Well, okay! Here they are! :D :D :D Presenting Sneak peeks of the new Noel Mignon Lovely Day kit. Oh, my! These pics DO NOT do this kit justice! :D :D :D

There's a new challenge up at Mix It Up! Here is my layout using pictures of inanimate objects and a 6+ word long phrase for my title. I edited my pictures to kind of have a blown-out dreamlike quality to them. Ever since Noel gave me LightRoom for Christmas, I can't help but edit all my pictures funky ways. Sorry, if you're sick of it. :) I'm sure it is a phase that will dissipate eventually! LOL!

I also created another layout using the beautiful Scrapperie Cherries Jubilee kit. These are pictures of my niece when she was a baby. I'm just working on a few pages for her baby book! :) (Slowly, but surely, Amy, I am getting it done! ;) Thanks for your patience!)

Last, but definitely not least, you will want to mark your calendars for April 17th to 19th. BackPorch Memories is having a Spring Fling Crop and it's going to be full of fun challenges and prizes. :D :D :D Now what scrapper can resist that?!


That's it for today!
Have a great one!


  1. Wish I could be playing in my garden too but there's still about 2 feet of snow on it. :( I do understand what you mean about instant gratification when vacuming, I love it! That kit looks gorgeous, I can't wait to see what you do with it! I'm loving the los too but that' goes without saying, I always love your work. :)

  2. You are so cute to weed your dirt...that's hilarious! I'm sure all the hard work will pay off when the time comes to plant! Your LO's are fabulous--love the photo editing!!

  3. I love the look of the new Noel Mignon kit. You must be itching to plant in those beautifully prepared garden beds.

  4. Your beds look wonderful now! And those are some more beautiful pages Jana! love your work :)

  5. If you wind up in Oklahoma feel free to come and weed my beds all you want - LOL! Beautiful layouts! Your work is always AMAZING! Great looking kit too!
