Tuesday's with Noel Kits

Happy Tuesday! I hope you all had a great start to the week yesterday. I know I did-we lounged and swam and lounged and lounged some more! Today brings fun times as my mom promised the oldest a trip to toys r us to go birthday shopping! So it will be a fun day!

Without further ado here are some layouts I made using the fabulous Boardwalk kit over at Noel!!!! It is a BEAUTIFUL kit and the original is all sold out but she made a few limited edition ones so hurry over and pick one up!

This first one is one of my favorite! I LOVE the papers, I love the picture and I just LOVE it! My dad snapped this picture for me over Easter weekend! I should have taken close up pics b/c there is a bicycle in the bottom right corner....it's a stamp from the kit and I used brads on the tires.....:) I did pull the pink alphas from stash that came in the cabin fever kit. Oh and the butterflies are the wooden ones and I used the gorgeous blue spray from the kit as well!

This one I just adore. My sweet girl and her last day of kindergarten. I used a sketch for this one but I can't remember if it was a Jana Eubank sketch or a different one.....(i'm so sorry) Everything on here is from the kit :) Used the spray to drop ink in a slant down the page! 

This one is of my sweet girl and her "bff" at their end of the year dance recital! I used some Shimelle Lane inspiration! I love how different this layout turned out from the others and I just adore these two girls! 

Thanks for taking a look around! I hope you have a wonderful Tuesday!

Weekend Re-Cap

Happy Monday! I think I am the only person on the planet that gets excited about Mondays! Typically-during the school year-everyone goes back to work and school and I get the day to catch up laundry and cleaning and such....and it's QUIET after a loud and busy weekend. Even though it's summer and everyone is here I still LOVE Mondays!

Anyway-I told you last week I was going to work on a blog schedule....well I'm here with day 2! Here is my planned schedule:

MONDAY: Weekend Re-cap

TUESDAY: Layouts from my Noel Mignon kits

WEDNESDAY: A layout or more using my stash (this will be a good way to get rid of stuff!)

THURSDAY: Cards (EEK....I am trying to make more cards and this will help)

FRIDAY: Insta-Fridays!

What do you think? I'm hoping by posting it on here you all will help me stay accountable!

So for my weekend recap: I got my blog schedule figured out....I may need to tweak it some later but we'll see. My mom arrived from Arizona! WOOT WOOT! And we were just lazy around the house, it's been too stinkin hot to do anything so we have been hibernating for about 4 days! I'm hoping to get some pool time in today between the raindrops that we desperately need!

I hope you all have a FANTASTIC Monday and I will leave you with one of my favorite pictures from vacation last month to help you dream of paradise!

Post 2 for today!

Hey I'm on a roll! LOL....anyway I told you I would be making a schedule and we will try it out this next week and I may re-arrange or make some tweaks....but I wanted to share what will be a normal Saturday post! I participated for the first time ever over at CSI-Color Stories Inspiration with case file 26! You have a Scene, the scheme, the evidence and the testimony! Every month there is a prize up for grabs too! Debbi is amazing over there! Anyway you still have time to participate in the case file 26 but hurry the deadline is tomorrow!

Here is mine:
This picture of Jackson was perfect for this challenge! His shirt, the background were all the colors requested! And for extras: Savannah spilled sprite on the table right before I took this picture and got the add of sprite right in the middle at the very top! Sweet huh!

Anyway-make sure you pop over there and check all the submissions! Those girls are FULL of talent!
Happy Saturday! I haven't forgotten my last 2 layouts I did for twisted sketches it is with sad news to announce Anam has decided to end the blog :( I was so excited to design for them and I am super sad to see them go. Please stop by the blog and show some love for the last few posts. Here are my last two assignments:

The twist for this one is GRADUATE, anyhow, anyway! So I scrapped Savannah graduating from preschool. 

And this last one is a Thanks twist! I used Noel Mignon Jack and Jill kit! 

Sorry these are late we were on vacation and then gone out of town! :D Hope you all have a happy weekend and I hope to be back later today with another post! 

Friday, July 6, 2012


Well happy Friday to all of you! I am going to start working on something new around here and that is a blog schedule! I'm going to start with today and I am linking up with Life Rearranged Blog by posting pictures I took on Insta-gram throughout the week. I just LOVE my iphone! Do you have one yet? I was a little behind  with the times but I got one this past year for Valentines and I love it! I hardly ever go anywhere without it and as bad as it is there are lots of times I don't ever put it down! *GASP* I know right!?!?! Anyway-let's get on with our pictures from this week! I don't think I have very many :(

My sweet lil man! We had popcorn at Memaw's and Pawpaws house! 

My newest addiction: NERDS! They are great....you should try them :) I actually first discovered them at Christmas b/c they have FROSTED covered nerds! OH MY!!!!

J-Man is always being silly! We were waiting at the dermatologist on Tuesday.....eczema for the lil man! :( 

Here is a sneaky peak of a layout I did using the Boardwalk Kit from Noel Mignon....I LOVE it! 

I decided to do something fun with his hair for our fish fry at church! Everyone loved it and he was a hit! :D We need a haircut and then I think we might be doing this more often b/c it's so dang cute!

Happy fourth of july from our family to yours! This is the last of my pics for the week b/c yesterday we stayed inside b/c it was so dang hot out and I see a repeat for today! 

Have a happy Friday y'all!
