Derby week is more fun and eventful than the holidays in Kentucky!
So, to go with the the flow of having so much fun this week, I'm going to share a layout of me and my crazy brothers. We have a ball when we are together- no matter what the situation or location! Enjoy the weekend... I know I will! Happy Derby!

Here is a layout I did with some pictures of Mac and Anna that I have been holding on to for a while. I especially love the last pic on the right- look at Anna's face! So sweet...
All of these pictures were taken in 2007, but they still love to dress up and pretend together! Now, Elan is old enough to play too and the outfits fit him perfectly, where they are way too small for Mac!
Here's a close up of all the goodies on the page... lots of Studio Calico papers!
I had to make it a little "girly" because Anna wanted it for her book. I love how all three of them ask who gets the most recent layout! ;) Makes me feel good...
Have a good day!

I've had the idea of making a "quilt like" layout with these 3 photos of the kids for a while. So the sketch was the perfect shove to get it done!And I absolutely LOVE the finished product! I'm going to frame it and hang in my craft room. I love all the new paper snuck in and the little details...It's another rainy day, but I have a fun day planned with the kiddos. Hope you have a good day too!

It was such a busy week with running around, doing errands, welcoming a new baby, and just settling back in after a scrap weekend away. It takes me a while to get back into the groove of things and not to mention catching up on laundry and cleaning house!
I have so many wonderful cards and layouts to share with you that I didn't know where to start, so I decided to do a little of both!
First, one of my favorite layouts from my trip was of Elan and Uncle Scotty. I love the grid of circles below the pictures, that idea/inspiration came from the 52 More Scrapbook Challenges by Elizabeth Kartchner, page 40 if you have it! :)
I punched circles out of some of my favorite papers and then used stickers, chipboard and ink to embellish.
Once the pictures and paper circles were in place, I doodled an edge around the border with a ink pen. This layout came together rather quickly! And I love how it turned out!
Next up, a couple of cards I made last week to send out to some friends for the birthday treats they gave me. I am loving the color yellow right now. I made both cards with scraps! Gotta love that!
