I feel so lost.....I have the house to myself!!!! It's taken 2 whole weeks but I am finally "home alone"!!! All I can say is look out world! :)
I have a layout to share that I actually completed some time back...or at least it feels that way! I'm just getting around to posting it tho!! I used Sketches In Thyme Sketch numero uno for September. Soooo much room for artistic interpretation with this sketch...gotta love it!!!
I'm not quite ready to let go of summer yet, so i am still scrapping photos from our trip to the lake over the summer. We went driving off the beaten path after we had enough fishing and found this amazing Old Mill.....the stone wall you see in these pix are actually the base of the mill....the kids had to hop a creek to get to it but I am glad they did because these are some of my favorite photos of them!
Most of you already know Jesse....and that is my 12 yr old son Brandon posing with him. Look how close they are to one another in height!!! Bob is really tall so no doubt Jesse will be too. Actually he almost as tall as me...and in 3rd grade. How is that fair????? It's bad enough being the only girl in the house but soon I will be the shortest too...blah!!!
I put this layout together using some AWESOME goodies I won during the Paper Haus blog hop a couple of weeks back. They REALLY spoiled me rotten!! The papers are all from 7 Gypsies.....love the grungy, vintage feel of them....the star with the sticker mounted to it was fussy cut from the paper. I think all of the stickers are from Glitz......I thought "The Best Day Ever" was the perfect title for my page because it was a day the kids will remember for quite sometime....even my older boys who are usually way too cool to hang with me....lol. The canvas flowers are Prima.....I have some super fuzzy ribbon below the photos from Websters pages and added some bling......love how it all came together!! The pop of green was the perfect touch because the centers of the flowers have that same color green in them.
Fun layout to put together, and as I said....you can stay simple with this sketch as I did (which is actually so not like me,....lol) or just let your imagination fly. I wanted to focus on the photos so I stayed pretty true to the sketch.....mark this day on the calendar because it doesn't happen often.....lol.
I'm also joining it the "For The Boys" Challenge at Colorful Creations......I recently found them on ning and they have some awesome challenges and everyone there is super nice! This is the first challenge of theirs I have joined in, and the challenge is to use patterned paper or something other than alpha's to create your title......I may be off base with my sticker, I dunno...we shall see tho!!!
It's a rainy day here today so maybe I an buckle down and get some crating down......and laundry......and housecleaning.......you see which I listed first right? Priorities!!! :) I have a roast in the crockpot and the house is smelling sooo good! Everyone is invited for dinner!!!
I'll be back a bit later because I have some AWESOME news I am dying to share!! I'm just waiting for the go ahead......I think I can keep it hush , hush so long as I don't have to sit on it for longer than 24 hours......lol. I'll just say I am VERY excited and can't wait to Sahara my news with my scrappy friends!!
Enjoy your day!!!
