Only 4 days left till David goes on vacation.. So excited.. Love spending time with David and the kids.. relaxing.. and i will have help too.. which means i might get some pages done while he is on vacation.

Since my design team for So Sketchy has ended i have looked around at some of the scrap challenges and found this really cool one called Mix it Up.. you can see what the challenge is and also the sketch.. love sketches.. and i used some supplies from the
Scrapbook Studio..

Have a great Monday..

I just got home from Savannah a couple of hours ago.. Just towing around 3 kids wears me out.. Trying to get some things ready for vacation so i am not running around for things.. I also stocked up at Bath and Body works.. boy do they have a sale.. buy 3 get 3 free.. i love the smell of coconut and lime together.. so i got the travel size to take with me on vacation and some lotion.. feels so good after being in the sun all day..

I made this cute sign for the Scrapbook Studio shop.. i hope Cecile enjoys it.. it was so much fun to make.. and pretty simple..

I finally found some pearl glimmer mist.. and old lace glimmer mist.. I am in heaven right now.. not sure if i should go to bed or stay up and play with my glimmer mist.. let's see.. if i go to bed i will be watching some kind of strange sci fi show.. if i stay up i can listen to James Morrison all i want... hmm.. we will see..

It is so hot here.. my brain isn't working very well..
I told some friends on Facebook i would show my canvas album.. I made this for our vacation in July to Atlanta and to Tega Cay.. and hopefully in Aug we might go to the Gulf... i really want to go to the gulf for some reason..

I used some stuff from Polka Dot whimsy also.. and some maya mist to give it some color on the canvas.. These are some of the blank pages.. i think i will post it when all the photos are in..

Yesterday was Father's day and we took things pretty simple around here.. We went to the pool and just laid back most of the day. Took Grandma to church.. pretty normal stuff..

Speaking of church.. man o man did Father Lee talk about forgiveness and love yesterday. We have had some things stolen in the church and the police finally found the people who were robbing the church. He spoke about forgiving and loving these kids that did this to our church. Great message.. so glad i was there too..

here is a layout i did for Got Sketches 104 class i am taking.. love this class.. I loved this car tag when i got it in my studio calico kit.. couldn't wait to use it.. something about old stuff i love..

Have a great Monday..

It is so hot here.. suppose to be in the upper 90's.. so we are at the pool some and just trying to find a cool spot in this old house.. Last night we went to Waycross to Dad and Rhonda's.. The kids swam in the pool and ate and swam.. They passed out on the way home. Me and David had a great time.. So good to see Wendy too and the growing baby.. She looks so beautiful pregnant..

Here are some current layouts i have been doing..

one is for the Scrapbook Studio Cecile had this pack of Bo Bunny paper for me.. I haven't done too much green and orange but i loved what i did with it.. so out of my range of colors.. which i love a challenge..

This photo of Cole is my favorite of him.. I love the way he looks at the camera with his eyes..

Have a great day..

Today i have lots of things.. A layout to share and some great news to share also..
here is my layout for So Sketchy.. i am not a fan of 2 pagers.. seems to me it takes so long to put things together
but this one didn't take me very long to do.. I learned this great technique on the Kenner Road Blog to make these flowers.. I am going to show some close ups too of this layout.. seems like 2 pagers you don't see very well because it is so large..

Supplies used
Cardstock KI memories
Pattern paper Prima
lace paper Creative Imaginations
crepe paper Jenni Bowlin
letter stickers JilliBean
tiny sticker letters Making Memories
ribbon American Crafts
circle bobble Prima
tag (playtime) Ormolu (etsy)
brad Sassafras Lass
chipboard Basic Grey
I also used American Crafts Pen to outline the letters and for journaling.. I used a Signo White pen to make the slashes on the chipboard..

Okay onto some really exciting news.. I was asked by Cecile to be on the Design Team at a local store in Pooler.. about an hour away.. Here is the link to the stores blog Scrapbook Studio.. So honored to be on the team with some other talented girls.. Grand opening is Friday.. I can't wait to visit the new store.. and see all the goodies..

Have a great Monday.
