Horse! Layout

I think I actually finished this layout sometime back in March or April of this year, but hadn't posted about it at all. There are some horse properties near our house, so this layout was about seeing some horses on a bike ride around the neighborhood:





I've been a fan of Evalicious paper tags and puffy stickers lately (and by lately, I mean earlier in the year, when I made this and some other layouts).

Coming February 2015!


Already, baby #2 is getting a bit shafted compared to Evie. For example:
  • No weekly belly pictures (but that was more for me).
  • No timely blog announcement (I haven't been crafting/blogging last few months because the couch + TV shows have seemed more appealing every time I weigh both options), although it has been shared on Facebook, which more family/friends actually see.
  • No scrapbook layouts (yet) of ultrasound pictures. I plan to do them at some point . . .

I'm starting to feel more of an itch to craft recently, so maybe I'll start getting some layouts done. I also have some blogging to catch up on. Greg jokingly accused me of not loving the family anymore due to my lack of blogging recently. Ha.

Whisker Graphics Tags

Back in April, I also made up a few tags with some Whisker Graphics supplies, which I didn't end up posting.

[10/30/2014: I don't know how I missed this, but it looks like these tags were posted to the Whisker Graphics blog back in May: Colored Tag Art]

Rainbow-colored twine and stamping on a white tag:

Whisker Graphics Guest Designer Mini-Album Foundations

I'm a guest on the Whisker Graphics blog this month, and a few mini-albums went up last Friday: Bitty Bag Mini Albums

Here are a few more shots of each mini-album. My thought was to have a few blank ones on hand for scrapbooking.

Happiness is Swimming Layout

I did this layout back in January (during a "calm before the storm" at work) of Evie swimming last summer:

IMG_5017_HappinessIsSwimmingLayout
IMG_5023_HappinessIsSwimmingLayout
IMG_5021_HappinessIsSwimmingLayout
IMG_5025_HappinessIsSwimmingLayout

It mostly uses Cosmo Cricket's Summer Love, along with some puffy stickers and flair from Evalicious and Thickers (from Amy Tangerine Sketchbook, the chipboard muse/whitewash). There's also a little bit of Divine Twine thrown in there for the "EK" banners.

Evie was in the pool with Greg pretty often last summer. I'm expecting as much or more pool time this summer. Maybe this summer she will actually learn how to swim!
