Wonder Wheel layout

These pictures of Sophia are many moons ago but are still some of my favorites. They are from a day we went to Coney Island with my sister & nephew. My nephew had a class trip at the aquarium & we tagged along. It was winter & it was kinda cool being at the beach at that time.
Was inspired by Jot's September mood board challenge... Jot Magazine




A little sneak for Come on Get Crafty's October class "It all started with a sketch"

Pool Fools

From our summer vacation. We love this hotel, we go every year. It's just so relaxing & the pool is fabulous. This particular day the kids were being literally fools, LOL

Back to School layout

The annual back to school photo. Happy to say I've trained my children well because they know not to give me a hard time lol.

Mikey 9th grade and Sophia 8th grade.

Happy hump day! Almost FRIDAY!

So happy my layout was featured on Paper Issues

Relax layout

This is a very rare moment for me because I truly do not know the meaning of the word.
Used Elle's studio Thursday sketch for 9/19. Been doing lots of challenges lately and they are really helping me use my supplies.

Dreams Really Do Come True layout

At this exact moment in the photo I thought to myself....Finally. Finally having my dream wedding & I'm about to marry the man of my dreams! It was a little surreal. This photo was the first time in that wildly crazy morning that I was able to take a breath and think. I'm so glad the photographer got this shot & that I can remember that exact feeling!

Not to mention the fact that I LOVED my veil! LOL

Happy Friday people! Enjoy the weekend!

Pretty as a Picture layout

Oh isn't she tho...... My Aly!

Lots going on in this layout. Including stitching & watercolors. Wasn't sure about the repeating picture but I'm happy with how it turned out.

Used SC Double scoop kits & a few other tidbits. 

Also have to thank Alyssa for outlining the frame and Sophia for helping me with the stitching. Mommy had to make Sunday dinner so I truly appreciated the help xoxo

Just noticed the dot is missing over the I.... It's there in real life now :)

First Day of High School layout

Can't believe my Mikey started High School! Feels like just the other day I was holding his hand & walking him into Kindergarten. 

this an everything but the kitchen sink layout. While I really enjoy making these types of layouts, I realized why I don't do them too much. Besides the time, which I don't really mind, THE MESS it makes is cray cray lol

It was a miracle that I got him to write even these 3 lines. 

Happy Friday!

Sophia loves her music... Anytime, anywhere and for any reason. Always has a pair of headphones attached to her head!

Used the new We R Memory Keepers chalkboard  and Glitz Designs wild & free. Also some enamel dots from the new Freckled Fawn kit.

Thanks so much for looking!
Don't forget tomorrow is TGIF!

Fierce layout

"Tho she be but little, she is FIERCE!" ~ Shakespeare 
Yep pretty much sums me up!
