studio calico.

game on

let's bowl

Been thinking (for way too long :>) about subscribing to one of the many kit clubs around. I finally bit the bullet and joined Studio Calico and couldn't be any happier! I love the idea of someone else doing the shopping for me and having alphabets, papers, cardstock and embellies that coordinate. I feel like I've gotten in a rut just purchasing "collections" and while everything coordinates because it was designed to go together I'm getting a little bored with it. I also got out of the habit of using things from different manufactures together. Also boring!

I got my first Studio Calico kit and am in love. I whipped out 2 layouts in one sitting the first time I opened up the package. The Joyland kit is a perfect mix of papers and embellies for all sorts of different layouts and I can't wait to get next months kit. Definitely ordering some add on's as well. I can tell from the sneak peaks I will fall head over heals with the next one too!

on a side note....both layouts above were inspired by sketches. Game On was a sketch by Jana Eubank and Lets Bowl is a Page Maps sketch (kind of :>)

swing time.

swing time

I've had this one done for a bit but couldn't get around to photographing it with all the sports and activities going on at our house. We are running from the time school gets out until after 7 almost every night of the week! I just love to see my kiddos having fun and getting better at the sports they love to play though so all the craziness is totally worth it!
