state fair

just a quick little layout i threw together this morning using state fair from studio calico.  it was sitting there, practically begging to be used!  so, use it, i did!  :)  i think i may have a black cardstock addiction at the moment.  i can't get enough of it!  it's becoming my new kraft.  (don't tell the 75 sheets of kraft i have sitting in my room that, k?)

a few new layouts :)

i've had a little scrappy time this week; so i squeezed in a couple of layouts.  finally broke into candy shoppe! it's only been sitting here forever!  :)
a note: we are totally fine!  it's just been an exhausting, fast paced year with a couple of bumps.  just incase anyone was worried.  

my bubs last year.  he doesn't do school photos well.  lol.  this is a pretty good face for him.  :) 

these pics are of my great uncle roy during ww2.  he was a bomber pilot.  doesn't he look like he just strolled off of a movie set?  seriously.  i don't know who was taking the photos, but on the disk my mom gave me, there are a bunch! i am glad for it!  :)

tutorial day at elle's!

so, today is the day.  i've been dreading it a little.  i've never written a tutorial.  the thought of doing it frightened me a little.  but, i think it turned out okay!  :)  so, i made this cute little cupcake topper.  hope you enjoy!  for the actual tutorial & more pics, click on over to the elle's studio blog & peep it out!  :)

a few unloved layouts

...okay.  so maybe not unloved.  i love them a lot!  (& i can't always say that about my layouts!)  "unselected" would be better!  lol.  ck had some calls posted.  i did a couple of quick ones to send in.  haven't heard & they are pretty quick to respond; so, i'm assuming they weren't selected.  but, i do love them.  so, i'm gonna share!  :)
i do LOVE those sass foldies!  LOVE!  i hope they keep making them!

_____________________________________________________________
these next 2 were for the "use the same product for 2 layouts" challenge (though i'm certain it had a much catchier name than that! lol)

march scrap again projects

so this month the "theme" was floss.  
for this one i used some of the kit items with pattern paper, buttons & letter stickers from my stash.  i had that "hello sunshine" pattern paper pad for years now.  felt good to use a little bit of it!  :)  this photo is of my oldest and middlest.



oh... my youngest.  and the things he says.  sigh... there are so many silly things!

and this quick little card using up some scraps.  :)

nothing scrappy to share today.  so, i thought i'd share a couple of pics....
the copy of quick & easy i ordered came today & noah was quite excited to see himself on the cover!  :) 
(please ignore the toys on the floor in the background...  it looks like this in my house anytime children are around...) 
and i took some pics for my friend emily this morning.  i'm still working on them, but i just love this sneeze!  how is it babies even making sneezing adorable?!  i sneeze like that & it's u-gly!
