Amazing

happy to report my back feels *almost* back to normal!--yipee!  I pushed myself in spinning today, let's just say I felt it--now my kids want to go on a bike ride! :)  Letting me rest a bit I'll go--I will!

Today I was able to share one of my layouts from the January You + Me kit from Scrapbook Circle.  I have to be honest I needed this kit to sit and simmer, and then the ideas just came.  you can tell from some of the journaling which book i'm reading right now (The Help):
 little closeup detail:
I just loved using those teeny type letters from Glitz.  there were enough letters or journaling, AMAZING!

these pictures I took while on thanksgiving break, I was experimenting with lighting and jumping and the scenery--REALLY happy with the outcome.  (You will be seeing a lot of different layouts with different children with this same background, I took quite a few that day...) I printed them at 2"x3" then mounted them on white cardstock and using my perfect layers cut the edges.

Well, it's time for me to leave for the bike ride, should be an adventure--I'm thinking we might just have to go for some lunch seeing as it's the last day before they go back to school....thanks for the visit!

I really like how you made your pictures look like little poloroids.

Hope your back is 100% very soon.

I loved this layout as soon as I saw it in your Scrapbook Circle gallery this month- so awesome!!

Also, I had to laugh a bit when you said that the kit had to "simmer" with you, because I was EXACTLY the same way! It sort of made my brain turn inside out the first time I saw it, but after I while I was okay with it. :)

Hi Diana! I just saw you commented on Megan's blog! Small world! She is local to me! The walking/running group I started on Facebook, she is in on-but I am very fortunate to have Megan locally! She has been a great local cheerleader! ANYWAY, trying to catch up with things after the holdiday and all I have been thru and had to stop by! :) Great LO's too!!

Love the layout with the row of photos. That photo size is my favorite. Enjoy the book. I finally finished mine on our drive to AZ. Still waiting for the movie from Netflix.
