Big Picture Scrapbooking

I'm loving the BPS class I'm taking, "Baker's Dozen". With a little direction we gathered embellishments, pictures and some patterned papers and now we are putting embellishments with those pictures and creating layouts, 13 in all when it's all said and done. I've been so inspired by the class. Darcie is a great instructor and with her sketch ideas it has made it extremely easy to whip out a layout every other day. Well, in my case, 4 in one evening. I'm still behind by 3 and another one will be posted tomorrow so I better get busy!

I thought I would share the layouts I worked on last night! It was fun to be creative again, I feel like I haven't really had my creative "mojo" lately, just rolling with the punches. This felt freeing and fun!!!

Enjoy your weekend!

What I Love About Summer...

Over here on this blog from Adornit they are having a little Summer Celebration. Georgana challenged us yesterday to create a layout about what we love about summer! So I took the challenge, but just today was I able to get to it! Here is what I made in just a few minutes too!
I know it's a little silly, but I truly want my kids to know what little things make/made me happy! And a little splurge on myself a few times a year, is to get a pedicure. Elijah called it a "pedicare" this time last year. I think he finally has it figured out now!

Now, Summer toes aren't the only thing I love. Those other things would include being a little lazier than we are during the school year! Dinners from the grill. Longer days! The boys playing on the water slide. Play dates. Zoo trips. One dollar movies. Mini vacations. Camp Grandma & Papaw... I know the list could go on and on, but those are just a few of the reasons why I love Summer! Happy Summer everyone!!!
