Sorry it's been so long.

Good morning everyone. Sorry it has been so long since we posted. Things are a big crazy around here. I just found last week that I am losing my job! Came as a shock! So still trying to process that. And believe or not Kel is moving again. This time to a bigger and better place AND on the same street as Dawn and I, watch out husbands!! They will never see us.

I decided I needed to have some fun last night and I did the page. This pic was taken the first night we were in Florida, and I am in the picture, woohooo, never happens.

Here is a close up of the little calendar. It was a bright green, but inked it up to soften the color. I used patterned paper and folded the love the travel down behind my picuter to make it a mat. Together is a sticker from my stash and the paper clips are from StampinUP.

Here is the stamp set and the tools I used on my page.

I hope everyone had a great great weekend! I will swing by and check out what you are working on.

  14. Hello ladies! Just wanted to check in and say hi. It's been so long since I've had time to check in with the blog world. My son, Emerson John, was born on July 5th - 5 1/2 weeks early!! He's healthy and doing great for a preemie. And we are finally settling into a routine at home so I'm hoping to get back into my scrap room and back to my blog / blogging. I've missed you ladies!

    Hope you are still managing to enjoy what's left of summer with everything going on in your lives. Laurie ~ so sorry to hear about your job. Kel ~ congrats on the new house.

    Hope to catch up with your great blog posts soon!

  15. This layout is fantastic! I love the way you reversed the colours on the bottom border and over the photo. That looks amazing! What a super photo of your family, too! Wow - does your oldest ever look like your husband!! And you look fabulous!!
    Laurie, I'm so sorry to read that you will be losing your job. I've been looking for a new job for a bit now and know how difficult uncertainty can be. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.
    I want to move to your street too!! How fun for you all!! But poor Kel moving again. She's still unpacking from her last move!

  16. JD so awesome to hear from you!! Congrats on the new little guy. Such a strong name!! That is probably why he is doing so well!! I am so glad you stopped by, we have missed you.

    Kate - come on over and live on our street, we would have sooooo much fun! My older guy does look like my husband. I hope your job search comes to and end soon as well! It is hard!!
