Sketchy Thursdays 4.21 and Scrapbook Circle...

A couple of weeks ago my youngest son and I took a little trip to Waxahachi, Texas to visit the Crafty Scapper! It is truely the most amazing scrapbook store that I have ever been to and we went on the perfect day because they were having an amazing birthday celebration! We literally spent all day there shopping, doing make and takes, and meeting new friends! I was so proud of my son for being a good sport and later that evening he told me that he actually had a fun time and enjoyed our little trip! My heart still glows when I think of what a great time we had. But backing up a bit...I originally thought that he would get bored quickly so I pretty much let him pick out anything he wanted in the store so he could make some bookmarks which I later found that he had picked a LOT of stuff out!!! I purchased the majority of it after convincing him to put a few things back. I actually almost spent more money on him than me : O !!!!

So, anyway Thursday night after my oldest son's baseball game he asked to make his bookmarks. Even though it was way past 10pm I said yes, just so we could get 'er done! He caught me at the right time because I even let him have one of my Maya Road bottle caps that I had bought during our trip (((GASP)))!!! And, I had to take out one of my favorite new toys, my Instax Mini, to document this late night craft session! (Love that camera! It makes it so much easier for me to scrapbook on the fly since it takes me forever to print out digital photos).

So, this layout is based on this week's Sketchy Thursdays 4.21 post and also for Scrapbook Circle's challenge to use a banner on a layout! I used March's Scrapbook Circle kit with the addition of Crate Paper's Toy Box collection and a few things from my stash too! Well, let's hope this week is very crafty because I have tons of babyshower projects and cards that I need to make!

Have a beautiful week!

Pencil Line Sketch 232

This layout is based on this weeks Pencil Line Sketch. This is the first photo I took with my new Instax camera earlier this week! Ithink I love this thing and my kiddos are lovin' it too. Snapped some crazy, silly photos of them too! I primarily used Noel Mignon's February Truely Scrumptious kit for this and added my own handmade flowers,banner, Crate Paper, and twine, oh and some cardboard! That's it! Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by!

sketchy thursdays 3.31

I love sketchy thursdays! I'm a little last minute with my lo this week, but so glad i played along! I have a ton of these mustache photos from Valentines Day since I didn't actually send out the cards like I was planning on, so we may see a lot a layouts with this photo. I'm usually not the type to keep scrapping the same photo over and over and don't get it when people do it because for me one of the main things about scrapbooking is recording why use the same photos a bajillion times? Anyway, I digress....I used March's Scrapbook Circle kit, a few items from Crate paper's Toy Box collection and made some flowers from jeans (addicted to these) and Maya Road zipper trim! I really need to get crackin' on using up my kit because I received my April kit yesterday and I LOVE it!!!

Have a great week!
