I am pretty excited because I have never had anything published before and now four things in one week. I just uploaded the Happy LO and now have to take it out for publication!
Hope everyone had a great weekend!
She also needed her shots and didn't like that one bit. Around 4pm she started crying and I gave her some tylenol. She just layed on my lap the rest of the night making all kinds of sad sounds. My heart was breaking for her. I kept saying "mommy why do my legs hurt?" I figured that was probably what she was thinking.
I also finished two layouts from sketches from 52 weeks, 52 sketches. I am lovin' the sketches. They are so fun! Both are of Frances's 3 month pictures. I can't believe she looks so different already!
Adorable You. Layout (sketch 14 from 52 weeks, 52 sketches)
Journaling says: There's not enough paper and there's not enough ink to write all that my heart wants to write about you. I also tried using some beads on the layout. I used diamond glaze to glue them to the accents and double sided tape to put the strip below the pictures. Thanks to Jodi at 52 weeks, 52 sketches for her great bead tutorial!

I have been working on some new LO's of dear Frances that I will post this weekend. It is supposed to be over 80 degrees here this weekend, I can't wait. Hope everyone has a great weekend!

I remembered your bday card:
Hello Flower Card:
I created the flower by layering some left over making memories tags I had laying around. I inked around the edges and stamped a little design all over them. You could make the same thing by punching tags out of patterned paper or cardstock or even cutting some rectangles out of your left over scrap paper. Layering some different sized rectangles with all different patterns would be interesting. I think I am going to try that. What a great way to use up my scraps!

I loved using the sketch to make this layout. It was nice to have everything layed out and not have to think about where to put stuff. I only had to decide on the paper and embellishments. Since it was a park LO I wanted to use some fun, outdoorsy, cute papers. Of course I had to use my DCWV Green Stack! Have I mentioned how cute that paper is? It has such cute animals and flowers and designs on it that you really don't need that many embellishments. I cut the branch out of one sheet and then cut 2 x 2 squares to make some cute embellishments for the side. The paper was so cute I didn't want to take away from it so I just chose some simple buttons. The buttons in the shape of flowers are so cute. They are from the Autumn Leaves big bag of buttons.

Seriously you should look at the packaging from your scrap supplies. Now I always think what I could do with the stuff before I throw it away. Great for making a card!

You see my mom likes everything I make. I could write happy birthday on a piece of paper and tell her it was a card I made and she would say "You made this? It's beautiful." So I am sure she will love the card ugliness and all.
Come on, even ugly cards need love every once in a while. Am I right?

So with everything going on I finally got around to fixing up the blog! I spent most of the night working on this. Ron took baby Frances and I have been tinkering with this thing ever since. I think I finally have it how I like it. No more generic blogger template! Hurray. I was getting a little embarrased. Let me know what you think.
Have a nice weekend. I will be around cleaning house, scrapbooking and taking care of baby Frances.
Scrap That! is a great place to meet other scrapbookers, find inspiration and have fun. I have been chatting with all the girls this week and am having a blast! And the projects are amazing. You will find so many great ideas.
So April's challenge is:
Make a card or scrapbook layout (1 or 2 pages) with a word/picture combo for the title or sentiment.
Here is my example:
Go to http://scrapthat.ning.com/forum/topics/sarahs-april-challenge to find out more and see the other design team member's challenges.
And have a great Friday! Weekend is almost here!
