Jillibean Soup Double Page Layout

Hello there!  I hope you all have beautiful weather like we do here!  

I had a few minutes this morning and thought I'd share a layout I created a while back.  

Another simple two pager.  I used a sketch, but for the life of me can't find it!  I just live this Jillibean Soup line.  I will be quite sad when it is all gone.  
 These pictures were taken over a year ago.  We had been couped up inside for so long when the sun finally came out we headed outside for a walk to the creak and to play in the yard.
 I love Jillibean's sticker and die cut pages.  It makes it so easy to embellish a layout.

Thank you for stopping!  I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

More layouts and Photos

As I mentioned in a previous post, I discovered some layouts I hadn't taken pictures of and shared and also found a few on my little netbook I don't use very often anymore.  

This is another quick and simple layout.  Lately I have been creating layouts with many photos and two pages layouts.  The pictures in the layout are from when both brothers and sisters in laws came over to work on wedding invitations and party favors for one of the brother in laws wedding.  Confused yet?  Maybe I should just toss out the in-law part.  :-)  Maddy was quite attached to her Uncle Adam.  Ad one point I caught her sitting in his lap as he was trying to work on the wedding invitations.  So cute!  :-)  I am so blessed with fantastic brother and sisters that the kids love!  :-)  
The line above is super old.  But I loved it so much I couldn't get rid of it and knew I could create a layout with a few small scraps!  

Next up is my March Project 12 layout.  Project 12 is important to me.  Even if I don't have time to be scrappy, I try my best to at least get my Project 12 done.  I think years down the road I will enjoy reading the recaps of every month.  March was full of the kiddos being sick.  :-(  They got better just in time for Spring Break which we spent camping.  

I am so excited to be seeing more and more garage sales pop up.  :-)  This was my haul from last weekend. 4 games for the kids, a camping folding chair (like new), a little purse for me, a book for Maddy, a few craft kits for the kids, a few pieces of clothing and two little clipboard things I plan to use for a road trip.  They open up and have a compartment perfect for a coloring book and some markers.  No more 'uh oh Mommy, the bag of markers fell' the kids getting frustrated with not having a hard surface to color on.  All this for $12.  I was pretty happy about that!  Especially considering we have played most of the games many times now as well as the book has helped Miss Maddy not have accidents.  

I also found this purse Maddy is holding at a garage sale.  It looked new.  I got it for my sister in law who mentioned she was wanting a purple purse.  Maddy would NOT let it out of her site!  She even went to bed with it and took it to the grocery store and carnival with her!  Haha!  
 We had a few nice days last week.  The kids were able to get outside and play. While on their play structure, they found a frog!  I was shocked to see both of them picking up the frog!
 Even Maddy caught it and held it!
Crazy kids!  It is pretty darn cute to watch Maddy try though as she is usually just an inch short of grabbing it before it hops away.  haha!  I sure hope warm weather is on its way back again.  I'd like to get back outside and not freeze!

Thanks for stopping by!

More Layouts and Pictures

I discovered a few layouts I had completed a month or more ago! 

My apologies again for the bad pictures.  

I am pretty sure I used a sketch for this one, but can't remember.  I think I need to start writing the sketch I used on the back of the layout when I am done.  Chris and I love to go to Charlie's.  It is one of our favorite restaurants.  We try to go on St. Patties Day every year to get our green bombers (green beers).  
 Another layout I came across.  Again, I think I used a sketch but am not sure.
I have been keeping my layouts pretty simple.  

We had a heck of a busy week last week.  Peyton's school had an Olympic event.  It was so much fun to watch all the kids.  Each class represented a different Country.  Peyton's class was Japan. They spent a few weeks learning about Japan and then created shirts and hats for the event.  Each child did one running event and one field event.  

 Friday night was Peyton's school Carnival.  It is the PTO's big fundraiser.  I was volunteering to help set it up and worth the ticket table, so the kids Great Grandparents came over to watch them and take them to the carnival.  They had a lot of fun.  Of course, they wanted to play on the playground for a bit too.  It cracks me up that there are all sorts of fun game booths and the kids are drawn to the playground.
 Saturday and Sunday we picked did some planting.  The kids had a blast helping.

Thanks for stopping by!
