    I finished this layout a few days ago! I just love this picture of Noah and Nate.

    I got a new circle punch that I used for the circles on the bottom and I machine sewed around the big circle.

    I did this layout of us "moms" at the zoo! I was so excited to meet both Jessica and Sara that day! I met both girls online at and was thrilled to meet them and their kids in person!
    I have hidden journaling under the picture that says....I met these girls online at We don't live all that far apart so we decided to meet at the como zoo with the kids.I had a GREAT time meeting them, I feel like I've know them for a long time. I hope we get together again soon.

    I also included a picture of the kids at the zoo for the grandparents that are reading to see :)
    I just LOVE these pictures of Nate and Ciaara! She is growing up sooo fast and I know there probably won't be many moments like this left. I hope she knows she is NEVER to old to climb up on daddys lap.

    The girls at Memory Creators helped me to come up with the perfect title!

    Here is another 4th of July layout--this one for Noah! Another way I found to get lots of pictures on one page and I do like how it turned out!

    I am trying to be better about journaling in my own handwriting like I did on this page!

    Well I got ONE picture to upload today! So far I couldn't add anything else to this :(
    I did this layout the other day and I really like how it turned out-- it was a very simple layout but I did stitch around every patterned paper block to add interest.
    I took SOOO many pictures on the 4th that this was a good way to get lots of pictures on the page.

    I did this layout yesterday... I was looking through my Creating Keepsakes magazine and saw a layout similar to this and new I had a the perfect picture for a one photo layout!

    I changed up the layout to me it more me and I really like how it turned it out!! Love that picture of Ciaara!

    I started this layout a few days ago and finished it up yesterday. I cut the snowflake myself, that was kind of fun to do in the summer, the kids asked when they can make one :) I told them this winter lol

    I liked how this layout turned out-- I used Heidi Swapp masks for the title and the snowflakes are by Heidi also.

    Here is a layout I did today--I LOVE this picture I took of all the kids together. This is the first layout I have done in a couple weeks --YAY!! :D

    The first picture is the goodies I got yesterday at Archivers! I always always buy paper--I LOVE paper! The Gin-X rubons were 50% off--can't beat that deal! I also got some Karen Foster Biggie Brads in pastel and bright colors but I already put them away so they didn't make the picture!

    The second picture is some paper I got at Joanns and, I am in the free shipping club at so I get to use a coupon code AND get free shipping--they are shipping UPS this year so I'm sooooo loving it!! This picture also shows the new Memory Boutique stuff I got.The first box in front of the paper are alpha rubon monograms, the second box alpha diecut monograms and the third box is rubons also! I'm so excited about all the new stuff Joanns has gotten!

    The third picture is Joanns new dollar section --the stuff is by colorbok and its great!! Can't wait to use it and since I'm becoming a chipboardaholic its great for me!!

    The 4th picture is also things I got at Joanns for either one dollar or 99 cents--I LOVE the cute stamps and for a dollar WHAT A DEAL!
    I've certainly been buying too much lately-- but oh well! lol Its always with good intentions of using it!
