low quality smartphone pics--HIGH quality person in the pics--LOVED hanging out with this super funny kid of mine!
I used the new Only You kit from Scrapbook Circle for this fun page. I loved the puffy numbers--black and white fun to add a touch of whimsy to the page. If you can't tell all of the glasses are from the same manufacturer--he ended up choosing the last pair of glasses--on the sides they are colorful and FUN, just like him!
I LOVE creating with non perfect pictures--sometimes those are the BEST because they clearly tell a story compared to the "staged/posed" ones. DON'T be afraid to create with your pics--recording the moment is the most important!
Thanks for the visit today--I really appreciate it!
if you wore braces--do you remember the day they came off? I sure do!! I was SO excited, I'd had them on for like 3 1/2 years, AND I got to wear that NASTY on top of the headgear. It wasn't the cool kind that you wore on the back of your neck either--it was on the top of my head. My braces were also brackets around EACH tooth--yeah I REMEMBER the day when I was FREE! ;)
As you can tell from the pictures my girl was ELATED to get those suckers OFF! She actually let me take a picture--teenagers...seriously...
here's a peek at part of the title:
For this layout I used the Fresh Startkit from Scrapbook Circle....
I'm off and running busy today--I REALLY appreciate the visit and hope that your day is TOTALLY fantastic for ya!
I was inspired by the mood board over at Scrapbook Circle for this layout:
little closeup action:
The giant gold letters included in this months kit–Fresh Start are DIVINE! I knew that I really wanted a title that wasn’t too long but also used several letters. Then I found these pictures and remembered the story behind them. We were in California after a soccer game, hanging out with some family. The sun was setting and casting AMAZING light on my daughter–I HAD to turn around and take pictures. THEN she realized I was taking pictures–does this ever happen to you? I kept shooting and caught this honest smile from her–LOVE when I get candid non posed pictures, to me it truly portrays the person. Thanks for the fun trip down memory lane and the visit!
I pretty much love this whole page--everything about it makes me happy! the picture the paper, and the memory--LOVE it! For our fall break we went back east to explore--seriously a trip of a lifetime--LOVED that I could experience something new with the family.

I was pretty excited to use one of my new toys that I got from Christmas
Fujifilm Instax Share Smartphone Printer I seriously am in LOVE with the thing! I really like that it prints pics from my phone and I can see what is going to print. We bought mine off of Amazon, and was a little cheaper than what it is now. Either way it's a great little toy that is small and sits right on my desk!
For this layout I used the Fresh Start kit from Scrapbook Circle--THANKS so much for the visit today!!
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line a 12-cup muffin tin with liners or grease the muffin cups. Set aside..
In a medium bowl, stir together the oatmeal, applesauce, milk, egg, vanilla, butter and sugar. Set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt (and cranberries or raisins if using). Make a well in the center and pour in the applesauce mixture. Stir until just combined (don't overmix or the muffins will be dense and dry). The muffin batter texture might be a bit different (wetter?) than other muffin batters but no fear, carry on!
Distribute the batter evenly among the 12 muffin cups. Bake for 15-20 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Don't overbake or the muffins will be dry.
Remove the muffins to a rack to cool completely. Once cool, I place 6-9 muffins in a large freezer ziploc bag, suck all the air out (oh yes I do) and seal the bag, then freeze, pulling them out one by one to stick in my kids lunches or warm slightly for a snack.
These two boys are seriously inseperable--they have ALWAYS been that way! They were in heaven when we stayed with them for a week last summer. So cute--I love this page because it's colorful just like these two boys!
Thanks SO much for the quick visit today--I created this page with the January kit from Scrapbook Circle called Fresh Start--thanks again!
