a little catch up

well.  i was already a terrible blogger.  throw in our wacky 3 different start and end school times, baseball, softball, kung fu, church, doctor's appointments, dentist appointments, unexpected visitors (though happy to see you, hunter!), a trip to the ER, a husband who works late and add in me trying hard to get into running again, it leaves me with ZERO time and = a really, really terrible blogger.  i don't even get on the computer often these days.  i don't know about anyone else, but i am looking forward to lazy summer days where our only commitment is baseball, and i can scrapbook and read while the kids play.  sigh.... we are almost there!  so.  here i am catching up with my pebbles layout from TWO weeks ago!  the theme was "my favorite."  i chose my kids!  while they may drive me up the wall on a regular basis, they ARE my favorite!
And, before i share that layout... a fun note:  you can now buy your favorite American Crafts products directly from American Crafts.  How cool is that?!  Check it out HERE
okay. the layout.  :)
 i have wanted to try my hand at a sunburst layout for ages.  but, the measuring & all kind of intimidated me! enter my cameo.  :)  i love that machine!  i used the sketch pen and drew it onto a sheet of cardstock and then switched to the green glitter pen & "wrote" the title on with the cameo.  I then used the cameo to cut out the pieces of pattern paper.  in hindsight, a better way would have been to cut the design out and then use it as a template for the pattern paper.  ah, well.... there is always next time!  :) can i just add here how much i LOVE the pebbles sequin candy dots?!  i hope they continue to make them for other lines, not just hip hip hooray.  (which is SUCH an adorable line!)
