Love the August ohDEERme kit!

Today I had a chance to play with the August ohDEERme kit from FF. In love...now to convince the baby to give up the hand sewn felt balloon...not going so very well. What a very busy week, the boy turned 9 the party was nice and school is back into full swing. This always means adjustments and re-evaluating time management between all of our activities. For now here is a page using the Drive in add-on from SC this month and pieces from the ohDEERme kit. I also played with the banner trend from my class. Enjoy!


Cheers!

A Layout and an Album cover

My mom decided to grow a garden with the boys this summer: the result should be a variety of pizza's. So I have begun scrapping their endeavors and making an album using October Afternoon's Woodland Park. I just love the versatility and use of this kit. Fun, outdoors, and whimsical. Here is the cover for the album:


At Studio Calico I have been taking the trendspotting class and loving it. This has really allowed me to keep my style while exploring trends. Here is a page I made using the Drive-In kit from the August add-ons.


Now off to feel better as I caught the boys cold and I am trying to shake the rest of it loose for all of the festivities coming up. Have a great Friday or Saturday and thanks for visiting!
Cheers!

Some new layouts...

I am getting there...still a variety of emotion...numb maybe...but I am breathing and moving forward.
I actually felt creative the other day and made two layouts. I just wanted to pop on and share them. I have a busy week ahead of me as my big boy's birthday party is Sunday, school starts for him Monday, and his actual 9th birthday is Tuesday. I have been up at 2am and in bed by 8pm with the kiddos and school in between. I am feeling it today after the paper last night to finish off my managerial accounting class. I just want to take a moment to celebrate the successes I am still achieving regardless and it helps to move forward. So please enjoy and thanks for stopping by.

Cheers!

Just need time

Hey guys...
I know the worst blogger as of late...my personal life just turned upside down and the changes are happening sooner. I have had no desire or want to do anything crafty as my days are spent trying how to do this soon on my own. I will be back but for now...I need to work on adjusting life for my kids and emotionally building myself up again. I know you will understand, but I feel I have to apologize anyways. I love the community I have found out here and I will look forward to being apart of that once I get life sorted out.
