The pink Padawan....

Note to self is not your typical themed December kit (from Scrapbook Circle), it's filled with DELICIOUS papers and colors.  I LOVED the pink in the kit it inspired me to scrap these particular pictures, they've been waiting for YEARS--three to be precise.  

A little story on this layout.  We went to Disneyland a few years ago and they have a Jedi training area for kids (still don't know what Jedi's and Disney have in common, BUT I like it!)  Anyway, neither of my boys were brave enough (even though they love Star Wars) to even volunteer.  My daughter held up a sign proudly (it's said PICK ME!!) and was chosen.  They let the children choose their light sabers, and put their Jedi robes on--SO ADORABLE!  What made me giggle is that she had on these BRIGHT pink crocs on!  Once her feet hit the stage it was ALL business.  She was SERIOUSLY learning to fight Darth Vader!

For my pictures I actually scanned them and printed them smaller, they just did not work the size that they were.  I really like that one of my pictures actually printed wrong, it shows a closer look at my daughter's face.  Happy accident! 
The misting was crazy fun to do, I LOVE mist!  For this particular layout I wanted to try something new, well new for me... I misted on a darker cardstock, not only did I mist,  I misted A LOT and then tilted the page to let it run a bit. I really like the affect.  It looks SO much better in person....
I added a bit from my stash from previous kits and things that are sold in the shop over at Scrapbook Circle, the corrugated circle, and buttons....

So last night my middle guy had his last soccer game.  It was COLD--cold for us like 52 degrees, I had on my silk long johns, long sleeve shirt, winter coat, hat and two blankets.  I was just right--the kids looked a little cold, in fact it hurt to kick the ball--they had fun and won!  yeah!
Afterward, my DH said, "you know what sounds good?"  Ice cream!  I know him well, I had packed my Tiger pride card in my wallet (I bought it from a football player doing a fund raiser, there are certain discounts it affords you from local businesses.  DQ has their medium blizzards buy one medium get one free!)  So we headed over to DQ, I normally order the mint Oreo (LOVE mint!) So when I looked up and saw this:
I jumped up and down for joy--LITERALLY--yes, I am like a little kid....it's called Candy Cane chill.  And it is AWESOME!  The kids and I all ordered it.  DH? ordered mint Oreo, he figured he could taste one of ours--SO yummy!  Don't worry I had my milk pills with me so I could enjoy this tasty treat, it was GREAT!  Can't wait to go again! :)


Today is packed with a hike, soccer games and soccer parties, it's overcast and chilly with a chance of rain....bundling up is a must!  Hope you have a fantastic day and thanks for the visit!

Trying to email, but I can't find your email address.
Yes, that was me!!!! We were on Campbell street. My brother-in-law lives there and that is where the family gathered for a week. You should have stopped! The time just flew by. Next time I want to plan a "meet" day with all my online friends. Scrapbooks Etc. was huge!
