a few more layouts... and catch-up with my photos

Picked up some Daisy Bucket - A Wondrous World with my last order at Lovebug. Love the colors and love the outdoor-sy feel to these patterns.

Scrapped some pics of Devin and I at a picnic last September.
Again, Daisy Bucket papers -- another of my favorite fall photos of the kids.

This one is based on a sketch by Tina MacDonald at Paws On Scrapbooking.

February 16
He's gotta run out of clothes sometime, right?!!?? I'm waiting to see how long Luke goes before he decides he needs to do his laundry. Almost 2 weeks now.

my layout for Monday's challenge at

Sisterhood of Scrap -- my little princess :-)

.... and my three handsome boys!

A couple of layouts done with Basic Grey's "Urban Prairie". I just love this line and I have done lots of layouts with it. Getting down to scraps of it now :-)

Did this layout for a challenge I posted at Lovebug Scrapbooking. Isn't that Daisy D's paper cute!?

I used Bo Bunny for this one. I don't have a lot of BB paper, but I really like the grungy look for this layout.

For the Love of Sketches!

We had so much fun with our last "sketchy" crop, we thought we'd do it again! Join us for a weekend FULL of sketchy inspiration!

What: "For the Love of Sketches" mini crop
When: February 20th 6pm est - Feb 22 6pm est

photo tag

I've been tagged by Jackie :-) I'm supposed to pick my 6th picture folder and then the 6th picture. Here it is:

I don't know what happened, but the colors are "off". Photo is from July 2004. We were at a friend's cabin, near the water. The kids had lots of fun finding crabs. Jessica, my nature girl, had no fear of holding them -- as long as she kept her fingers away from the snaping claws :-)
