Prairie Hill Collection - October

When I went looking for my paper collections at Pink Paislee, I knew immediately that I "needed" this one.  I loved the colour combination of grey, rust and gold. The muted, yet bright  patterns looked so fun!  Due to my usual feeling that I can do 5,000 things a day, I was recording the video at 2am and realized the next day that this first "help" layout was only half recorded!!  Grrrrr.... It's my favorite of this month's project too.  Anyway, I grabbed the camera & went to work on the next layout.  It turned out pretty good too.

These pictures remind me of all the days the boys
"helped" when they were little.  Sometimes
aggravating back then but awesome memories
now.  Love the way the inked chipboard swirls add pop
to this page.

For Brad's 30th birthday, we went go-carting.  Evan was only
a few months old, but I got a couple laps in with Brody :)
Ahhh, Brad :)   Love you.

And finally the video... kinda missed the music in this one.  Maybe I'll re-post it later, LOL.

September's Missing Post

The My Mind's Eye "Miss Caroline" collection was sooooo fun. I loved the combination of rustic and pretty. So many fun patterns too. I'm a plaid lover among my many other quirks. Here's the layouts I made for the video:

For my Aunt & Uncle's 25th Anniversary, my cousin
organized a weekend vacation for them. This picture
was taken in front of the fireplace at the lodge.

This picture always makes me laugh.  Every time I look at it
I can almost remember the stories we were telling.  Painting
the wooden embellishment was fun.

And last but not least, the video:

August's Missing Posts

Well, life has definitely been busy... Obviously I've been neglecting my blog. Brad's renovations this summer included digging up one side of the basement. This involved a very large pile of dirt that greatly attracted my children's interest. There has been a fine layer of dirt over my whole house since July. Next, my children brought head lice home from school. I am officially tired of cleaning!! I have been inspired to re-organized/redecorate my house however, so maybe I'll post some of it when I'm finished :)

So enough blabbing about my house, here's the stuff I should have posted in August.


I LOVE this picture!  There's something over the top adorable
about babies playing with their toes.  Really like the colours
in this layout too.  Love my new jumbo scallop edge punch.
