Long Weekend Ahead

Today my girls and I have worked hard to clean up the house and get our chores done, well mostly, so that we can enjoy our 3 day weekend relaxing. I am looking forward to lots of scrapping time and a little baking as well. It's plum season which means it's time to make my grandmother's plum cake. Yummo!

Today I want to share one of my Fancy Pants Designs layouts. I played around with the monochrome look on this one. I have to admit, it feels like something is missing on this layout but I stuck to my guns and did not add any other colors. It is nice to change it up and experiment sometimes. How else are you going to discover if you like something new or not?

In a Blink of an Eye...

And just like that, the month of August is almost over and September is knocking at the door. I am so very thankful that we have had a mild summer here in Oklahoma. I am a little worried about what the winter months will bring. Hopefully it will be mild as well.

Today I would like to share a quick card that I made with the new Happy Go Lucky collection from Fancy Pants Designs. With fall just around the corner, I was in the mood to create a fall like card.

 
I wanted to add a little dimension to my card so I added some enamel dots to the center of the flowers and lined the shadows on the mason jars with a little bit of white pearl paint.

Paris Crush

Happy Hump Day! Have you seen the camel commercial taking about hump day? If you haven't, you really should. It cracks me up every time I see it!

Today I wanted to share my newest layout from the Webster's Pages Postcards from Paris II collection. I just LOVE all the fussy cutting capabilities in this collection! And the butterflies are to die for!

Happy Monday

Happy Monday everyone! Things are back to the normal school schedule. The girls enjoyed their first day of school and are looking forward to going back today. My oldest is actually looking forward to homework and whined when she did not receive any on Friday. I have a feeling she won't be as excited about homework in a few weeks, but then again, she might surprise me. She loves to learn.

If you know my kids, you would know what goofballs they are. This layout captures them in one of their silly moments.



I used the new Recorded collection by Allison Kreft for Webster's Pages. It's a fun collection to work with and who would not fall in love with that woodgrain paper! Swoon!

So Long Summer Days...

Hello everyone! This is a busy week in our household filled with school open houses, buying last minute school supplies, and then school starts on Friday!!! Both girls can't wait until school starts! This is Jaina's first year in school so you can only imagine how excited she is! She was a bit bummed out that she won't be in the same school as her big sister but she will be next year and that seemed to make her happy.

To be honest, I am looking forward to school starting as well. It will be a bit chaotic the first week or so while we get our schedules back in sink, but after that, it will be smooth sailing once again. Plus, I will get to hear their school stories. Those are always fun!

Speaking of fun, have you heard that Webster's Pages is having a week long giveaway? No? Well then make sure you stop by the blog all this week and enter to win come fun new goodies! Here is a layout created with the new It's Christmas collection.
