A Layout, a Future Obsession and a Couple More Days from Our Week in the Life

I got to scrap yesterday afternoon and last night.  I spent a bunch of time playing in the afternoon for my ScrapTiffany assignment for the week. I can't share until that is posted over there tomorrow.

I also had time to make a couple of layouts using the Studio Calico Continental kit.  I better get busy with it, because my August kit, Summer Camp is going to be landing on my porch in the next couple of days. This layout was to document my current obsession I have getting my Studio Calico box each month. I get excited for sneak peak night, shopping on reveal day and waiting (not so patiently) for UPS to show up with my box each month, just in time for it to start all over. So last month when my box arrived I snapped a couple of pictures. Don't you just love those cute cards that come in each kit.


Also, I stumbled on something I am certain will become another obsession for me:


Picture from the PaperCrafters Corner blog, follow the link and you can see all more pictures she has over there and enter for a giveaway too.  I see several of these making their way to my scrap room, looks like I need to free up another drawer. I haven't even seen what Martha Stewart punches are coming, but I usually can't resist those either.

It is an obsession I don't feel too bad about.  It seems I use at least one punch on every page or card that I do. So they are well loved and used obsessions. :)

Continuing on with posting our Week in the Life highlights, here are days 4 and 5 (Wednesday and Thursday) July 28th & 29th,

Wednesday


I had trouble sleeping and woke up after having less than 5 hours sleep. Needing coffee...


Mike prepped for surgery...


Daddy resting, Nicholas making sure he is comfortable.


Someone really needed a nap....


Since no one but Mike wanted to take a nap, we had a family movie afternoon watching cars.


Brothers....


Random thoughts from Wednesday:
  • Grateful for grandparents
  • Waiting, waiting, waiting
  • Surgery successful
  • Thankful I can be home
  • Taking care of my family
  • Happy for places that deliver food
  • Hoping for speedy recovery


Thursday

Jackson at story time at the library, enjoying the bubbles....


Shopping at Hobby Lobbyfor some upcoming home decor projects...


Fresh flowers from Super Target for $5.00...


Mike requests In-N-Out for lunch. Jackson falls asleep in the car, putting the brakes on chances for a nap (makes for a rough afternoon)....


One day the corn fields will be gone replaced with houses and shopping centers....


The sky above our house, thinking we are definitely going to get a storm today...


Super Target shopping trip for tonight's dinner....


Crazy storm this afternoon, thunder and lightening right above and crazy winds that knocked down trees in the neighborhood.


Reading together....


No cook chicken tostada's for dinner....



Random thoughts from Thursday:

  • Little boy that doesn’t sleep through the night
  • Tough day expected
  • Lack of sleep takes a toll on all of us
  • Jackson rowdy
  • Nicholas helpful
  • Fresh food and homemade Pico de Gallo
  • Oreo ball cookies
  • Nicholas says “Daddy had surgery” and “Daddy’s resting"

What a great topic for a LO :) And I love the EK border punches too and CANT wait for the big borders to come out. I actually just added to my stash today ;) Glad your DH is on the mend :)

I hope the hubby is on the mend real soon. I saw a rack of those EK punches in Joann's this afternoon. Such a huge selection, so little willpower. Actually I did pretty good and only bought one - at 30% off no less. I think I may share this addiction with you.

Love the layout! So far I have not bought many punches, but these are very tempting. Hope your husband is doing much better. My hubby had his gall bladder out and I didn't bring my camera - what was I thinking!? :)
