Oh Life...

Just a quick post to let you all know that I am still here! I don't have to tell you all that this is a busy time of year. I want to send out a thank you to everyone who has placed an order on my website, etsy and/or ebay stores. It is so much appreciated! I have a lot planned for the future. I am getting ready to shoot some more youtube tutorials as well. Life is just getting in the way. We've been battling sickness for a little while now. The triplets have just been passing bronchitis and the stomach flu around to one another so it's been a couple weeks of sick kids. AND they are turning 3 years old tomorrow! Can you believe it?? I was able to get their cake done during nap time today and we have a party planned for tomorrow night, hopefully we can get a respite from the sickies to have a good time. I promise there will be pictures! So hang in there, I'll be back to full strength soon!

Sketch N Scrap Challenge #21

I'm back again today with another wonderful layout! Make sure you head over to Sketch-N-Scrap to post your take.
Okay seriously, who doesn't love October Afternoon? Their products have that great vintage vibe! For today's layout, I selected a couple photos of Rylan. I purchased a big box of legos on ebay and when he saw them he was so excited. He plopped down in the box and played for hours!
Instead of a third photo in this layout, I opted to add a journal spot. Because of the busy papers I used, I also framed the photos with a solid paper to help them pop.

Products I used in this layout:
October Afternoon • School House • Flash Cards
October Afternoon • 5 & Dime • Found Alpha
October Afternoon • The Thrift Shop • Near Mint
Crate Paper • Toy Box Collection • Stickers
Crate Paper • Toy Box Collection • Chip Stickers

Sketch N Scrap Challenge #20

November? Really? Yikes, Winter is upon us! Time to think about those wonderful summer days at the park. And it's time again for another Sketch-N-Scrap layout!

For today's layout I picked out a photo from this summer. On the way home one day, I spied a tiny little park with a jungle gym the kid's size. They also had a tire swing! The kids had never been on one of those so it was a fun new item. They giggled the whole time they were on it. I shot a short little video of it with my phone.
I used my sewing machine again with this layout, stitching around the main piece 3 times.

Products I used in this layout:
MME • Lime Twist • Life of the Party • Happy Day Argyle Paper
Colorbok • Patterned Paper Pack • Bright
Echo Park • Sweet Summertime • Summer Arglye
Echo Park • Sweet Summertime • Flower Garden
Echo Park • Sweet Summertime • Journal Cards
Echo Park • Sweet Summertime • Alpha Stickers
