Our Thug Life In Hawaii

Happy Friday everyone!!!! I am so happy to see the weekend get here! Anyone else? Time to kick back relax and enjoy the free time. Today I am up with a layout I made of a more recent photo. I was running errands in a store and Brian was trying to entertain the girls outside while I finished up. He was able to snap this photo of them and I just laughed so hard when I saw it.  It makes them look like such tough little cookies! But really???? How tough can they be when their Mommy calls them cookie!


I used a lot of Studio Calico's new line Atlantic for this one. I am LOVING the pinks & grays with the splash of orange and navy. The die cut arrows are from October Afternoon and my Silhouette Cameo machine. I even used my new Mama Elephant stamp for the little chevron details. 

Thanks everyone for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!

Challenge Time

I am always looking for a good sketch challenge and I found one over at The Paper Bakery. They have some fun and creative sketches to play along with! 
First up is Sketch #5...I didn't make it in time to enter it into the actual challenge but still loved the sketch so I played along! 

Here Is The Sketch:



My Take On The Sketch: 


I didn't have 2 photos that I wanted to scrap so I turned it into a 4x6 and turned the sketch on its side! My sweet wild child Shanley! She looks so sweet and innocent here. 

Next up is Sketch #6:




My Take On The Sketch: 



I tried to stick closer to the sketch and thought I did pretty well. But now that I look at it again yeah, might rethink that. But thats okay with me. I am very happy with how it turned out! My little Mac over a year ago! Still amazes me every day how quickly they change and grow! 

Thank you once again for stopping by!

Catch Me If You Can!

Hey blogger friends! It's time for me to play catch up here a little and just post a ton of photos of layouts I have finished lately. I gave you fair warning. Enjoy! 


So first up I have a layout I did for Shanley. She couldn't find her sunglasses so Mommy's were going to have to do. 
Supplies: Amy Tan's Yes Please, Studio Calico wood veneers, and My Mind's Eye enamel dots.


Here we have little Miss Mac with her shades. Such a cute little ham she is!
Supplies: Amy Tan's Yes Please, Studio Calico flair and flower cabochons, Freckled Fawn washi, and a Basic Grey Paper Cottage accordion flower. 


I am a little behind in getting this photo scrapped seeing as Shanley turned 3 on Halloween of 2012. But better late than never they always say right? She was so proud and excited to turn 3 and continues to tell anyone who will listen how old she is. 
Supplies: My Mind's Eye On The Sunny Side, My Mind's Eye washi, October Afternoon numbered washi, Elle's Studio tags , My Mind's Eye enamel dots, and Studio Calico wood veneer. 


Shanley has a SLIGHT obsession with Mickey Mouse. So of course for Halloween last year that's who she had to dress up as. I actually put her costume together for her and she tried to wear bits and pieces of it for days after. 
Supplies: This layout is a whole heap of randoms from my collection. I know I used some Fancy Pants, October Afternoon, American Crafts Thickers, Studio Calico, My Mind's Eye, and even some Crate Paper. 


My cute little pumpkins! I loved seeing the girls dressed up for Halloween. McKenzie and I spent the night before into the early morning of Halloween at the ER. Poor little was sick. She sure was a trooper though and did so well while Shanley went from house to house collecting candy for them. 
Supplies: October Afternoon Witch Hazel, American Crafts Thickers, My Mind's Eye enamel dots, Studio Calico cork arrows and wood veneer. 


This photo was taken from our photo shoot that we had done by Pretty Bee Photography. McKenzie's fancy outfit made her look like she belonged in the Victorian age. (Thanks Aunt Dede for the pretty clothes from Janie & Jack) 
Supplies: This is another heap of randoms from my stash. I think most of the paper is Studio Calico along with the arrows are also by them. There are of course My Mind's Eye enamel dots, Thickers, and some October Afternoon. 


Trying to get a "good" photo these days of the girls is next to impossible. Probably why my memory stick still has so much free space. If one of them isn't crying then the other is looking away. If I am really lucky I can get them to not choke each other or hit, which is always a plus in my book! For now I will embrace and enjoy the funny and goofy photos they are providing.  

Supplies:  I was really on a roll with using up the random stuff from my stash and trying to downsize. I have the usual suspects here though...Studio Calico, Thickers, October Afteroon, and buttons! But oh wait I didn't put any enamel dots on it! I might have to go back and fix that.

Well, if you have made it this far thank you! Thanks for stopping by and checking in with us. Till next time!
