What a week!

One thing is for sure - we really packed in the activities this week! Lots going on but the highlight of the week is by far the Circus! We went last night and the girls absolutely loved it! We started off by being able to go down on the main floor for the pre-show activities. The girls got a great seat on one of the big wooden boxes and were able to sit there the whole time for a front row seat. Anna Kate even got to participate which, as you know, is right up her alley! Funny thing is...I think at least one them thought we had seen the circus when the shows were over! But they were just mesmerized during the actual circus performances and looked for every little detail. Really, I haven't enjoyed the circus this much in a long time. Seeing them so genuinely excited and just in awe of the whole thing is what really made it so much fun for me!

I got very little scrapping time this week, but here is a layout to show. I actually completed most of it over last weekend and then glued it down a little at a time during the week. I have been trying to make an effort to go to some older files to pull my pictures for scrapping. These pictures are from May of 2005 and show AK as a budding fisherwoman!

Time Flies

I can't believe how fast January is moving! It is time to start planning Summer activities for the girls. Seems so strange to even be thinking that way as cold as it has been the last few weeks, but camps start filling up before you know it!

Here is a layout I created using the January TBC kit. I am loving these Thickers Tracy has been putting in the kits recently. They look fantastic and make creating your titles so easy!! I have been trying to dig down into some of my older folders to find pictures to use for my layouts. Not that I have the goal of "being caught up" but it might be nice to have more layouts of the girls when they were younger. These pictures are from April 2007 and are classic AK!!

Warm thoughts for these cold days!

OMGosh I am so tired of these below freezing temperatures!! It is just way too cold here! There is a reason I live in Alabama. We have to suffer through sweltering heat in the summer so we shouldn't have to endure Arctic temps in the Winter!! ;)

I know it has been awhile since my last post but holidays can do that to you. Here is a layout using the Fishing Set from the newest Cottage Cutz Camping and Outdoors release from the Scrapping Cottage. I used my Copic markers to color all of the individual die shapes this time in order to try to achieve the right effects. I have enjoyed working with the Copic markers and may even break down to take a class soon :)

You can click on the image for a close up view of the layout. Be sure to see where I added the string through the loops in the pole so that I could hang my fish!
