Friends Blog Award!!

I want to share with you a blog award that I received from a very talented scrapper friend, Kristine.
It's the Friends Blog Award.

These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to five bloggers who must choose at least five more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.
Thanks so much, Kris!!
I would love to give this blog award to these 5 blogging friends:
There are so many more who also deserve the award!
To my 5 friends listed above, copy the award logo and use it in your own blog. Nominate 5 to 10 blogs that you feel show great attitude and gratitude. Link to your nominees within your blog post and comment on their blogs to let them know they've received the award. Link back to the person who gave you the award to show your appreciation.

Me and My Kids

This is a special layout was done using a sketch by Tara Thynne which was a challenge on her blog. It also was a challenge at Scrapbook Doodle to do a layout about a special bond or relationship. I am so pleased with how this came out. Thank you to Tara and Janice for the fabulous challenges that inspired this layout.

Thanks for looking!!

Photo OP!

Since I am usually the one behind the camera, I have only a precious few photos of me with the kids. So, I finally grabbed an opportunity to hand Chris the camera and get one. Now, to do the Layout!!

(HI, TARA!! wink, wink!)

Squirt Gun Bandits

This Layout was done for the April Sketch Contest at My Sketch World. And, I challenged myself to make a distressed layout. And, I distressed my little heart out (and had to breathe into a paperbag the whole time!). I stepped so far out of my box that I think I need a map to find my way back! But, I am still happy with how it came out!

These photos are just Elizabeth being Elizabeth! I was on the deck taking photos of a layout and she yelled, "Hey, Mom! Take a picture of me!" she is! Thanks for looking!!

Birthday Fun at Scrapbook Doodle!

We had a month-long crop at Scrapbook Doodle to celebrate its' 2nd Birthday. It was super fun, but, I didn't get nearly as much done as I wanted to. I am hoping to keep working on the challenges even though the crop is over. Anyway, here is some of the work I did for the crop! Enjoy! And, thanks to Yvonne, Janice, Libby, Jodi and the rest of the gang at SD for a super fun crop!!
