Elan is saying, "look at this big one!" right before he popped it in his mouth. He must have eaten 100 strawberries that day, even his fingers were stained red.
I have been doing simpler layouts lately. Not because of little time, but because I just want my hobby to be easy and fun. I used to stress over a layout not being perfect and would work on it for days. Now, I scrap what I want and if it's done in an hour... well, right on!
Enjoy your night... I have b-day preps for hubby to do before morning! ;)

Floral paper (Scarlet Lime) and red check fabric are scraps from Jana :) Butterfly stamp and dies are from Papertrey Ink.
This beauty is my niece, Kendall. She turned 6 on May 5 and I didn't forget her birthday (no, no, no!) but I feel bad that I didn't post something special for her. I made her a cute card and embellished a t-shirt with felt butterflies, but failed to take a picture before wrapping. I believe she liked it! :)
Kendall wanted to get her ears pierced for her birthday and wanted Anna to come along. Anna of course wanted to pierce her ears too, so I agreed. On her birthday, we venture out to the mall and get the girls their ears pierced, only Kendall got a little scared and decided against it at the last minute. Which is why I (Aunt Lou Lou) found magnetic earrings in a small size and gave them to her for her birthday. See them in the picture below...
Kendall backing out didn't scare Anna. She still wanted to do it, so I said okay. She was so brave, didn't flinch or cry at all. One of the ladies actually got her earring gun stuck in her ear and Anna wasn't shaken by it a bit. (Lara and I were ready to strangle the lady though!)
Close your eyes and count to 3...
Done!As if getting her ears pierced wasn't "grown up" enough, Anna went and learned how to ride her bike without her training wheels. She picked it up lickety split, but I have to credit Stephen... he is a really good coach!
Giving her direction on what to do...Learning first in the grass how to fall the right way! :)
Riding a bike with the wind in her hair...
So excited that she can now keep up with the "Big Dog" but truly, Mac was very proud of her!Sweet Anna, growing up before our eyes, way too fast. Daddy is happy, but crying in the bathroom about how next week we'll be sending her to college and lord, she'll be married soon... she can't stay little forever. The best is yet to come! ;)And now for a little something extra... if you got to the end of this post, you deserve a treat. This is one of my newest stationery designs. I am in love with this one. I love the colors and the simplicity.You likey? Leave a comment and on Saturday I will choose one random winner to receive a set personalized with the name of their choice. Yay!
I'll be visiting one of my favorite sites tomorrow, Sketchy Thursdays to play along with the sketch. I'm also going to have a go at the sketch for the June Guest Design team. So, tomorrow, I will be working on a couple layouts! Happy day... hooray for Thursday!

It has been busy around here, so busy I haven't been on the computer much, except to make and send out some stationery orders. The end of the school year always tends to be a bit busy. I'm trying to get all my home projects complete before next Thursday, when my 2 little ones will be home for the summer.
Yesterday, my dad and I finished the wallpaper job in the powder room. Next up, painting Elan's room to prep it for big boy furniture and bedding. :( After, paint my 2 front doors... these projects can't be done with a 3 and 5 year old at home.
Hopefully, I'll have a layout or something to share with you tomorrow. I did make my mom a fabulous 6x6 scrapbook of all her grandchildren (11 of them!) for Mother's Day. She loved it, but I didn't take any photos, so can't show you the finished product! Just take my word for it... it was adorable!

I thought since it's Mother's Day weekend, I would share one of the cards I made. This one isn't for my mom, she reads this blog! :) However, it describes her so very well. Lots of different papers, including crepe- Mindy, thanks for the nudge on making crepe paper flowers! ;)

And for today, a super cute layout of my littlest super dude, Elan. These are pajamas! Mac would have loved them at this age, and he is still into superheros! These pictures were taken right out of the tub and with the jammies on for the first time. Elan said, "Mommy, do you want to take my picture?" Well, holy smokes, yes I do! The child never wants his picture taken! Then with cute pics in hand, a layout was born...
A closer view... see that felt star border? I found a 3 yard roll of it in the $1 bin at Michael's!
I'll be back tomorrow... got to get some work done before bed time, which is quickly approaching! :)
