Limited Edition

I think this is the last layout that I did. And it was a long time ago. I just love this monster that Noah drew and immediately knew I wanted to put it on a page. Better in an album than shoved in a pile somewhere. Of course I had this OA paper just waiting to be used.

I'm on holidays this week and next. Trying to see a few friends that I haven't in awhile, and hopefully get more than a few pages scrapped.

We took the dogs to the beach on Saturday. Anyone want to see pics?

more cuteness

Found these at a dollarstore. Imagine the possibilities...

pencils and paper

I have always loved stationary. I have tons of little notepads from years gone by that are barely used. This little green number is the cutest, isn't it? And those pencils?? Got them at Dollarama. Loooooooove :)

some happy highlights from the past week...
-scrapping with the girls (sooooooooooo good for the soul)
-brunch with the same girls + a few more awesome ladies + 2 cute babies
-fabulous meal at fresh cafe
-first pool day for the dogs (Cleo opted out and sunbathed instead)
-ice cream sundaes mmmmmmmmmmmm

This has taken up my scrappy time for the last few weeks. My friend asked me to make this album for her hubby for Father's Day. I can't share the inside, but really, it looks sooooooo good!!! I'm happy with how it all came together. I hope they love it.

it was a gigglefest

Went to visit Eva and Noah yesterday at my moms. It's been a lonnnnnnnng time so I took 74 photos!! Eva was so giggly, while Noah was quiet and content drawing monsters. Here are a few of my favourites.

new faves

First, my new favourite layout. I have been saving this Sass paper for something good. I finally decided to use it with my fave pic of Josko, my fave new Jillibean alphas, and my fave new FP journalling pages.
Second, my newest favourite card. I bought a big woodgrain stamp (looooooooooove!!!) and used it on cork, my new fave thing to stamp on. I don't think I'm giving this card away. Wish I could have have my favourite meal and dessert tonight, but no such luck.
