A Gift for Madi

It started out as this layout about my niece and god daughter Madi.

And I framed it and turned it into this for her birthday. I just wanted to give her something special from me so she would no how much I love her :0) And she really, really loved it! Along with the gift card for shoes we gave her. (She loves shoes and clothes)
By the way, I did the hand stitching on that tag I used for journaling. Lots of fun to sew on layouts! Even when it's something simple as that tag. And it already had pre-punched holes :0)

I do have one more layout to share, but Erin decided to run my tape runner over it. She was just trying to "scrapbook like mommy". But I managed to peel each little piece off. I just need to get a photo now!

Kid Storage Idea

I wish I could remember where I saw this photo. It was on-line and there is a watermark on it but I still can't remember. All that I know is that when I saw it, I thought "perfect!" 
We are in the process of remodeling our basement. A long process. It's going to take a while.
But I am already in the process of storing inspiration photos in a file on my computer.
This one is for the kid's art area. Mike is designing a space for all their stuff!
And a giant desk top with two chairs for them to share.
I can't wait!

So not Scrap Related, but...

my favorite thing to munch on right now is this hummus...
and these chips! Soooooo good. I am completely addicted :0)

Looking forward to lunch with some good friends today to celebrate a birthday before I have to pick Erin up from preschool.

Another layout!

This layout was created using a sketch from Kelly Purkey's Sketchbook 2 class. I was actually inspired by Stephanie Wheeler's take on the sketch. It seemed to go perfectly with this photo of Evan - my little artist :0)
If you click on the photo you should be able to read the story.

Watch Out!

Time for a new post, don't you think? :0)
I am just not the best blogger right now,
but I think that will be changing soon.
One of my most recent and favorite layouts. It's an 8 1/2x 11 with a story that just needed to be told! I'm hoping if you click on the photo it will get big enough to read what I typed there.
Anyway, the gist of the story is how Erin was sneaking up on Evan to knock over his Lego rockets with her car. And she didn't get away with it either! She can be such a little stinker sometimes :0)
