So, it has been a while since I have put some layouts up. Honestly, I have been so dang busy! I can't believe that Summer is nearly over and that I will be going back to work in just a few days. Oh, well.... it was a great Summer.
It turns out that I did get to go back to that job that I wanted, just not in the capacity that I wanted. I will be staying and working for the School District, but I will also be working with Early Intervention too, so I am thinking that maybe this is a blessing in disguise, and I really get the best of both worlds. I am happy with the way it worked out for me... talk to me in a few months and see if I still feel the same... I may be up to my eyeballs in work! Laugh.
Matteo is driving me crazy though, so maybe it is a good thing that Summer is over. I don't know how SAHM's do it... honestly. I so need a break. Man he is exhausting! I really think he needs a break from me too. He is really beginning to not be very nice to his Mommy. He is great with everyone else, but man he is a monster to me. I keep telling myself that this is NORMAL... It is right?
Anyway, enough of the ramblings... I do have a few layouts for you. The first two are layouts that I did for a class last month. I should have had them up earlier, but it just didn't happen.
For this one, I used BoBunny paper. I haven't gotten the pictures in it yet, but I did want to get it up here before I taught my next class. Which is tomorrow, so here it is.
I have some really cute photo's of Matteo in his swim trunks that will go in this one.
This next one is obviously a holiday layout. I absolutely love the Fourth of July. It is so mellow for us. We always go to Tahoe, which is one of my favorite places on Earth... swear! It is just so beautiful and the weather is great. Tons of stuff to do. Sometimes, I think I take it for granted because it is just in my backyard.
I used Best Creations mostly in this layout. I actually really only used one sheet of patterned paper to make all of the embellishments for it too. I love to see how far I can stretch a piece of paper.
Here is a close up of the bow. I cut out a heart from the patterned paper to make an old pin match the layout and stuck it through the bow.
For the class tomorrow, I have this one. I used Glimmer Mists to create the background, which was really fun. It does make the paper curl a bit, but I figured that once it is in a page protector, it should be fine. For the papers, I used mostly Making Memories Great Escape line.
And some details... I love these Making Memories stamps!
These photos are from a weekend at my parents house. They live in this quaint little town where you can leave your doors unlocked and your neighbor notices if your flowers need a drink... and then comes over to give them one. Great place. This weekend was Rodeo Weekend, so there was a parade, fair, and rodeo. A good time was had by all.
This second one features K & Co. I love their stuff. I used some photos from out weekend at Grammy Goonie's and Papa George's on this layout as well. Matteo LOVES the water... just in case you couldn't tell. Laugh.
This big ampersand stamp is probably one of my favorites by Technique Tuesday. I have used it tons! (but, I don't think it is still available)
And this one is just for fun. I have begun to do single page layouts (which I never have in the past), but I am finding that I actually like them. Sounds crazy hu? I think it is because I have finally figured out how to re size my photo's at home and I can print them here. This makes a world of difference for me.
For this one, I used the July kit from Studio Calico. It is about my little man and his blanket... aka "Two".
It is amazing how one little piece of fabric can make this boy so happy!
Wow that was a long post... for me. Well, I have a few others for you, but it is getting late and I want to get some scrapping done. So those will have to wait till next time.
Thanks for looking.
