Another layout . . .

Here's another layout that I did using more stuff from the 4SS September kit . . . and guess what . . . I still haven't used everything!! The supplies seem to never end!! I got into the card kit and created several cards, too . . . I just forgot to make pics of them before I gave them away!!

If you go to 4SS, you can still order a kit and PAY NO SHIPPING until Sept. 1!! That is a fantastic deal!!

Sneaks Peeks . . .

Here are some sneak peeks of the layouts that I have created using my very first 4 Scrappy Sisters Monthly Kit!! It has been so much fun using the products, I know that you'll love the kit!!

I still can't decide what has been my favorite product yet . . . I still have a lot of stuff left over, too! I need to do one more layout still, but it's been awesome! Lisa, one of the owners, has jam packed the kit with everything that a girl (or guy) could possibly need!!

Here are some pics . . .

So last week, the kids, my mom, and I drove the 299 miles to Portland to see the infamous Auntie Monica!! {pictured below with my 2 daughters, my uncle, & my bff from college}

We had a blast. As an added bonus, my bff from college drove down from the Seattle area with her adorable daughter. So there were 4 adults & 3 children in a TINY apartment! It was definitely a trip I won't soon forget. Being there made me realize how easy my life is . . .I would never make it in a big city with my 2 kiddos. Riding the bus and train were soo much fun, but it takes a lot more organization to do that than to get into my car!! The picture below is a crazy fluke of a picture that my sister shot of my daughter . . . it totally looks like is was taken with a fish eye lens, but it wasn't. Between the 2 of us, we took over 400 pictures in 4 days!!
This is a picture of all of us waiting for the train . . . the girls loved it . .. it was pretty cool not having to strap them into car seats. However, we did have to exit the train on Tuesday because Sophia was having a major meltdown! Argh . . .
This is a pic of probably one of my favorite events. After visiting the zoo on Tuesday, we decided to stop in the park on our walk back to Monica's apartment and play in the fountain! My girls loved it and got soaking wet!!
Anyway ... now we're back and getting back on track. I start school a week from today . . . back to work and back to a regular schedule. Happy Monday everyone!!

New Layouts to share . . .

Okay . . . here are some new layouts that I did:

This one is actually a 6 x 12 . .. I like it much better than my first attempt, but as with everything . . . I'm sure I'll get better at this size the more I practice! Any ideas on how to store them?
This was a fun one using one of my favorite pictures of my oldest DD . . . the paper in old K&CO Marcella with some new embellishments. I think that paper pack was one of my most favorite packs of paper ever! I still use it all the time!

This last one is just one talking about me! Thanks for looking!!
