A Showcase of Layouts

I attended a crop on the weekend and had a blast with all the girls that attended. I love laughing!! You know that kind that you laugh so hard you almost pee your pants!!!... yup you know what I'm talking about ;-) the kind that hurts your stomach and makes you cry! The laughing that is uncontrollable and makes you squeeze your legs together!? yes i had a few of those this weekend ... it was fabulous ! ~ Marielle, Stephanie, Chantal and Zoe always make a crop that much better.... Thank you Ladies for coming and many thanks to everyone for the Birthday Wishes!! xoxo That Pecan Cake was AWESOME!

I was lucky enough to complete 4 pages - seems to be my usual number for a weekend crop. I really try to do more but find that i take my take and enjoy the process. I added a few details when i got home and now ready to showcase. My computer is on the mend right now... getting a new motherboard and fancy RAM so i'm writing from my laptop. I can't see the details of my layouts very well, but at least i can post them

This first one is of myself and my nephew. He was 3 months old at the time. He was just a little tired and fell asleep in my arms as i was walking with him around the kitchen. It was a nice moment and my sister captured it on camera.


This next layout is of hubby and I. We were sitting outside enjoying the warm spring weather. It was March 16th on my 40th Birthday. We enjoyed the blue skies, the fresh spring air and mostly life as is.

I love Simple Stories! Their papers just make me want to create layouts with tons of layers, and I LOVE this page! I love the papers, the picture of my niece's face after she had a bowl of cheesies and the light on her face. She was 3 years old at the time ... so this was taken 2 years ago. I've had this picture in my pile of pics for the past 2 years and finally found a great paper collection to showcase it.
1 of a Kind!


My little nephew Nate. Isn't he just the cutest thing you've ever seen!? He has the sweetest cheeks. Cheeks not only an auntie could pinch! I used the new Echo Park papers from the This and That ( Charming ) collection. Love those colors and great diecuts too! - Yes I think he's amazing!


Well that's my showcase of layouts for you today!
I hope you have a fabulous week and hopefully I'll have more pages to share with you shortly.

Thanks so much for reading and dropping by!

Hugs,
