Recent Layouts - I've been busy!!

I'm feeling really good about getting some layouts done recently. I've done a couple of double page layouts and a couple of single page layouts. The double page layouts and the Play one with my son and a neighbor girl were all taken from Cherish and modified slightly. Enjoy!!!

This double page layout was of Mother's Day this year. My husband and our 2 boys took my mother, my mother in law and myself out to dinner. We took photos on our back porch before we left for dinner. The hanging flowers were mother's day gifts for all 3 of us moms!!

This layout was just plain fun . . . my boys are always dressing up and they looked so cute when they were both dressed up like Spiderman. I had been waiting and waiting to get just the right stuff for this layout. I really like how it turned out!!

I just did this layout today. My son plays with this neighbor girl everyday. I realized after I got it done that I really need to journal on this one, because it was so funny. They had been squirting each other with the hose until they were COMPLETELY SOAKED. Then, they got on the swing and just kept on playing, totally unconcerned that they were soaked and chilled to the bone! So, I need to find a spot to do a little journaling, but otherwise here it is . . .


My son is bugging me to get off the computer so he can play some computer games . . so I'd better let him have some time on the computer. I'll post the other layouts later this evening!!

Hostess Club Cards

Here are a couple of cards I did recently (both scraplifted from the CTMH idea book and bb). I love the pumpkin one . . . stamped on twill stickstock. The JOY card uses the old cocoa cafe paper from CTMH . . . I love this paper pack, but since it's not in the catalog I'm going to revise it using current paper for my Hostess Club.

Still to come some recent layouts I've been working on . . . .

One Week Down . . .

Whew . . . boy this back to school stuff is wearing me out! Listen to me . . .ha ha ha ha . . . you see we're not used to getting up early. I don't have to be to work until 11a.m. so rising at 6:30-7a.m. is something I haven't had to do since my second son was born - going on 3 years ago!!!

But we've almost made it through the first week. I have managed in the last couple of weeks to get some layouts done though . . that is a huge accomplishment for me. I've had so much fun using my Cherish book (Close To My Heart). It sure makes getting caught up on photos quick and easy! I'll post some photos tomorrow (my day off!).

Hope all my readers have had a good first week back to school with their kids. We've almost got it down to a routine now! Another week and we'll be set . . maybe I could do one of those Our Routine layouts . . . that would be fun to look back on in 10 years!! LOL . .

More tomorrow!
