I'm SO excited to finally share this layout I made!  I LOVE the picture and the sweet boy who VOLUNTEERED to go shopping with mom--HAPPY the whole time.

I totally dreamed this layout up--LITERALLY, I quickly came down and sketched it out.  So when it came to putting it together it was QUICK!  I've been wanting to try triangles on a layout for a while.  I cut them with my cameo as well as the title (which was free on the CK blog--it's Ali's hand)

mandatory closeups:
 yesterday we got a major storm, it just POURED, today it looks like we will get a mini one--I LOVE monsoon season for the interesting storms and RAIN we get!
Thanks for the visit today--hope you are enjoying the Olympics-LOVE the fact that you can watch EVERY event live on the website (if you don't catch it first time around a lot of the time you can watch it on replay or wait til primetime to watch).

Project Life June 17-23

This week was a GREAT week--we went to see the movie Brave--LOVED it, and I'm totally going to buy it! :)  We also got to feast on some KFC!  It also happened to be Father's day week--my boys were watching for the cookies to come out (that was what I gave to my brother & dad...):
 some closeups, hambly and Bella Washi with some studio calico paper and stickers:
some old school Elle's studio & hambly washi tape:
Remember THIS layout?  These are the clouds from that cut, they have been sitting on my desk.  This week I used remnants from one of my Scrapbook Circle kits Field Notes.
I stamped with some Studio Calico (the smile and heart were exclusive to the Pieces of me kit from Two Peas:
more left over hexagons! stamp from Studio Calico--Bella Blvd. Washi...
this cracks me up, little bit of Elle's Studio and Amy tangerine flags...
What I loved about this week is that I really felt like I was using all sorts of things from my stash and they all came together....I can't always promise such exciting closeups of the weeks but I just had fun creating this week--must have had MORE time!  The last two weeks were just getting them done, in fact I got them all assembled I just need to go back and journal, but other things have taken center stage....
My daughter and I are going to try and watch some Olympic women's soccer!  The opening ceremonies are tomorrow night!  I'm TOTALLY excited!!  Thanks for the visit!

care free.

I love this layout.

Could it be that my son actually let himself relax and let me take pictures of him?  yep!
Could it be that he was having a blast and didn't want to stop? you bet ya!
few closeups:
 I tried something different.  I scrapped on a page that wasn't white, cream or kraft.  I have a TON of other papers but seem to go through those three colors SO quickly.  It was fun to "let" myself play with a different color of card stock.  I used the Sunshine Day kit from Scrapbook Circle.  This is my second to last layout that I made with this kit--I made 5 and 4 cards--the leftovers are going to go into my Project Life--I LOOOVED this kit!

So today being Monday is EXCITING laundry day! Woohoo--I KNOW you are jealous!  I'm playing catch up with Project Life and Scrapping (hopefully) between laundry and helping my daughter with a sewing project.  What are you up to?
thanks for the visit today!
