new baby

the rockies

I was browsing the Studio Calico blog the other day when I discovered that they do sketches every Sunday! I love a good sketch so I thought I'd play along. I've been in a rut lately and these were just the ones to get me out of it! Next, I'm going to try and get caught up on Jack's school album. Jordan is pretty much caught up but Jack is another story LOL! Boy pages are hard!

Have a great day! :)

a layout.


I finally have a layout to share, surprised?! I took an unintentional break from scrapping or card making and got the bug again this morning. I dragged all my stuff upstairs so I could keep an eye on my sick kiddo and I'm going to try and bust a few pages out.

This one I actually did last Friday night at the Archiver's crop.
I only got 2 pages done unfortunately but I just wasn't feeling it.
I don't know about you but if I'm not in the mood the ideas just don't come to me.

spin me

ETA ...I got my second page photographed so I thought I'd share it too!

new smile


Jack got his braces off yesterday. Doesn't his new smile look fabulous? :) He also lost a tooth in the process. I wasn't expecting that! Poor guy had to have it plucked out because the ortho couldn't get the brace off! It was however ready to come out and since Jack is NOT a tooth wiggler it would have stayed in for ever. Totally better this way!

I was inspired by Karen Russell's homework photos so I took some myself.
We finally had a sunny day so I took advantage of it and brought the diorama
making supplies outside. Less mess for me to clean up inside! More sun today so I'm headed out to the deck to get some reading done.
