Hello my scrappy friends! And Happy Monday!!! (I'm ducking in case one of you have really good aim and plan to throw something at me...lol)
It's been a wild week or so....however long it has been since I last posted. I'm trying to keep the kids occupied and happy.......and keep them from killing one another. I'm almost to the point where I am willing to let em fight to the death in the front yard.....lol. Ok, not really :) But you know how boys are.....and I have five of em!!
I have been battling a migraine for the past 4 days and finally feel human today. So I'm sure the kids have not really been THAT bothersome......it's just that when you have a migraine EVERYTHING seems major!
We have been fairly busy. A few trips to the park, to the mall, and swimming. Today we are headed to the library to get registered for the summer reading program and Jacob and I are running some errands. I also have a new recipe goin in the crockpot right now and if it is worth eating I will share it.....lol. And then HOPEFULLY I can get some scrapping done too!!! I have a whole list of June challenges I wanna play along with!
Speaking of Challenges........I made the featured list at Red Carpet Studios last week! WoOOT!! My badge is on the sidebar :) Thank you!!!
I have a page today to share that I created using the this awesome pagemaps sketch.
I THINK the anniversary challenges are still going on.......if not I still love the sketch and am happy I used it :) The challenge was to convert this to a 12 x 12 layout. I used mostly Echo Park Scraps for this one....I'm trying to bust my stash so I can justify buying the newer summer collections that I am truly drooling over right now! And there are a few of em!!!
The cardstock and the Thickers are AC......the little fella (not Jesse but the other one....lol) is from Pink Paislee's Hometown Summer and I have been waiting and waiting to use him on SOMETHING! The bright and summer flowers are from Pebbles :) I did journal but not before I photographed my layout.......and its not a good photo because I have been using my cell phone....BUT my Canon is FINALLY fully functional once again. YAY!!! For me there swas just too much "space" left on the layout so I decided to sling paint all over it and then dipped a pill bottle lid in and made the circles. i just slung it right on the layout and actually dipped the lid into the splatters. I'm brave I guess.....lol.
I have a few other challenges I'm joining into with this layout...
