A Peek In My Week

I finished up a project from one of my CKC Mesa Classes which was called "A Peek Into My Week" It was a mini album for a week in your life. The class was taught by Elizabeth Kartchner, Creating Keepsakes Scrapbooker of the Year from a year or two ago. The mini was pretty easy to put together. I worked on it a bit in class and then finished it up after having a week documented and pictures printed out. I added some extra ribbon, doodling to finish it off.

A few weeks ago I carried around a camera and jotted down some notes to get a slice of life type of week. I picked a normal week on purpose. The only unusual thing was we were extra busy with Color Me Daisy that week due to a last minute advertising change which moved up our May kit release so it would be available when the ad dropped.

Definitely a fun little project I am glad I did. I am doing the 365 project which is fun to document our daily happenings, but the Peek in My Week was purely from my perspective. I will enjoy looking back at it, even today when I was copying the journaling from my index cards to the mini book it was funny how many minute things in a day you just forget.

Try it sometime.

Say What

Nicholas has been chatting up a storm and there are some words and phrases he says that are just so sweet. I may be biased but I think he has the sweetest voice ever. So to make sure I remember these things I made this layout based on a Pagemaps sketch using mostly BG Offbeat with some American Crafts thickers.

Journaling says: These are my favorite things you say: bubbles, bye-bye, more, purple, ma-me, okay, Ha (Hi)!!, night night, cookies, Nicholas, Yes, oh-oh. All said in your sweet voice.

More LOAD's

I have been having so much fun scrapping with the May Color Me Daisy Happiness kit. I have been using it up finishing my Layout of the Day challenges. I have made 10 layouts, 3 cards and 2 gift bags from this kit, and I still have stuff left for a banner and card or two.

Here are a few layouts I did with this kit in the past 2 weeks:

I love this one

I hunted around tonight for the pictures for Mara's challenge today over at the Be Happy Online Crop at Color Me Daisy. I knew which pictures I wanted, but I couldn't find one of them. I ended up cropping a 5x7 down to fit in with the other 2 pictures.

So here is my LOAD - Grandmothers. I used some Basic Grey Urban Prairie papers and buttons I have been dying to use.

Just a little something to share

Just a quick LO I made tonight for the LOAD challenge I have been working on. I have kept up at 13 layouts so far this month. I owed my mom this one of her with Jackson. So here it is using the Color Me Daisy April kit, featuring the Lily Bee Design French Couture papers.

Time to share

I have been busy lately. Working a lot, busy with Color Me Daisy, keeping up with the boys and all that fun stuff. I have been doing LOAD (Layout a Day) with Lain Ehmann over at Scraphappy. Basically you do a layout everyday in the month of May. I have kept up so far, so as of tonight I have 12 layouts done in May. It has forced me to be focused and not get too caught up in a layout. It's great to spend an hour or so each night doing something just for me.

So here are a few of the layouts I have done over the past couple of weeks. Most of them are using May Color Me Daisy kits:

Our 'Lil Piggy - Happiness May Main Kit and Websters Pages Alpha Add On

Be Still My Heart - Pink Paislee Captivating Mini Kit using Got Sketch sketch #82

She's So Tweet - Happiness Main Kit and Webster's Pages Alpha Add On

Say Cheese - May Pink Paislee Fetching Mini Kit

"Hat" - My new favorite line from Basic Grey is now out Lime Rickey. I just got a nice big box of happy mail yesterday with a whole bunch of this line. I think it is going to be great for boy, summer, park and kid pages. I love these birds, they are so stinkin' cute.

Nicholas won't wear hats, but after a walk one day he took Mike's hat from him and started putting it on his head and shouting "hat". I bought him a new hat today and he seems to like it. So hopefully we can get him to wear one outside now, since it is getting hot again.

A Little Pink Paislee

I have been having so much fun with the Color Me Daisy kits this month. Since I am doing the LOAD (Layout of the Day) challenge in May I have been scrapping at least a page a day since Friday. I have been keeping them simple, and loving having all these kits to work with. I finally broke out the Captivating kit tonight and made this LO from Easter with my Mom and Nicholas.

I have lots more to share just need a few more minutes to do it.
