Yesterday was a crazy day.. Cole's game was called off in the 3rd inning.. because of lightning.. i think something has to be done about the kids on the ball field when it is lightning though.. took them a while to get them away from the fence and the open space.. won't go into how i feel about that though.. so i didn't get any game hopefully.

Something i worked on yesterday. I had to make a kit it is called Whimsy Wilderness from Jillibean.. so i had to photo the kit then do 2 layouts for this contest Creative layout kit designer.. I have never really thought about putting things together. Although you had to put a the same products together, which i really like to mix it up. Fun challenge.
here are the layouts and the kit i put together.

Title is Moo Cow's.. that is what Ivy is saying when she sees them.. MOOOOO.. too cute.. got this great shot of Cole and Ivy..

Get me out of here.. that is exactly what she said.. so i added it as the title. Jameson usually is up for things like this..

Have a great day

I'm up at 5:30 this morning. I can't sleep. I think it is because David is working nights this week. So I am making a pot of strong coffee to hopefully give me a good kick to wake me up..

This weekend I found the time to scrapbook and to do an online crop at 2peas and then at Creative Scrappers I found it from another pea Toni.. They have tons of sketches there.. and i did 2 layouts one for the Early bird and the other for the blog challenge. They are also have a birthday bash the next 2 weeks about 26 challenges going on, and most of them have sketches with the challenges.
And i won the Early Bird contest yesterday.. Here is the layout I did... and some others i did this weekend.

This is the one I did for the Early Bird challenge. I was just having fun with the sketch and really didn't even know there was a prize involved.

I made this card with a stamp and a bleaching technique.. lots of fun.. Just made sure Ivy wasn't around.

Have a great Monday. Cole plays a baseball game tonight. Taking my camera so I can get some snap shots of him in action.

It's Tax day for some of ya'll.. I know Mo is glad that this tax season is over... I am glad it is over for her.. she really needs a break.. and have the Baby..

Our Easter was very nice.. although we missed going to Nana's this year because of Cole's dad being here.. so we are going to have the egg hunt later on. Can't wait for that..

Here are some photos from Easter at church..

Instead of reaching for the eggs Ivy thought it would be okay to go under the table.. she grabbed a lot of eggs but had more fun dumping them out. It was a beautiful day outside for the hunt too..

Have a great Hump day..
we are on spring break.. Cole comes home today, so we are planning on having his friend come over and maybe go to Savannah..

Easter is coming tomorrow. I love Easter. Tomorrow we are going to have a flowering cross for the first time and i am really looking forward to seeing it. Everyone brings a flower from home.. The armarilla's are blooming so i am taking those. Thank goodness it is going to be hot the girls dresses are sleeveless so it is going to be perfect.. Cole will be with us in the morning but then goes to his dads for a couple of days. Josh is home for a couple of days before he goes to Afghanistan.. Please keep him and Tracy and the family in your prayers.

Here is a few layouts..
Jameson at Jesse and Danielle's wedding.. She was pretty proud..

Couple of weeks ago it was so nice outside David took the kids outside to wash the car.. Ivy has learned how to take her diaper off so she was running around playing in the water.. i love her cute little butt..

This was taken the same day of the car wash.. A lot of skin.. white skin too..

This is a layout for So Sketchy for today.
Supplies used
pattern paper American crafts, Bo bunny polka dots, My mind's eye.
flowers making memories
clear pebbles Prima
tag is from Creative Chaos I love her tags and stuff, so glad she is sponsoring this month at So Sketchy.

fabric is from Jameson and Ivy's dress.. Ivy just out grew it and i didn't want to give it up so i am cutting the fabric to use on different projects.

The kids are gone today with my in laws to an Easter egg hunt and i am taking advantage of the time alone. Been a long time.. Moping and doing some layouts.. And a very long hot bath too.

Any day Ivy is going to be cutting that tooth. It is really irritating her to the point where she isn't eating or sleeping. i can feel it but it seems the tooth is pushing her gums.. i guess if it doesn't cut soon i am going to have to see Dr John..

I really had a great time with the Ladies at the crop Saturday.. it feels so good to be away from the house sometimes and do something for yourself for a change. I mostly did layouts for the Guest Design Team spot i got for this month.
Here is the link to the kit Scrapperie go to the boutique and see what Sandy has in her kits.. you will be amazed.. i have used most of the kit up this month.. here are some stuff.. still working on some other things. I also made some cards that i will post this week sometime. This is a great kit for boys.. i really loved using up some pics of Cole when he was smaller. still working on more of his baby stuff.

Have a great Monday.

I have been washing muddy clothes all day long today.. and i want to say ENOUGH is ENOUGH.. kids are going out playing in the mud, change clothes, watch a little tv, out again in clean clothes.

I did this mini book a couple of days ago. I got the kit from Polka Dot Whimsy Michelle does the best kits.. I love her style and what she picks out for the monthly kits.. she has the instructions for these kits if you want to use them for minis.. I like to use the instructions sometimes because it give me ideas for other things.. And it gives me a break from thinking of ideas.. nice change sometimes.

shhh.. don't look at the greasy little fingers on the front.. Ivy got ahold of it. I could have killed David for letting her touch it with messy hands. oh well another great memory
Later everyone..
Have a great weekend.

It's really raining here.. school is out tomorrow and Ivy is running a fever.. she has cried all day long today. Hasn't slept or ate.. So tomorrow will be very busy for us. I did get a card made for the Scrapperie's card challenge Snail Mail Soiree Challenge right now i am so into making cards.. i think i made 10 cards over the weekend.. and here is some layouts i did this weekend also.

When it isn't raining here everything is blooming.. guess that is why i am doing these spring layouts.
Have a great (dry for me) day.
