Two Layouts to Share!


This layout was from Scrappin' Great Deal's March Scrapbook Kit.  I shared it over on the store's blog last month but thought it deserved a spot here too!!  Love that picture of Malcolm, and I really wanted to remember him saying "My energy hurts!"  Two year olds have the best lines!!


Pictures of my Benny smelling the tulips.  The pictures were totally staged, he was smelling them, but then I had to go grab the camera and get him to do it again! This layout used April's kit at Scrappin' Great Deals.  A couple of the kits are still available in the store, they aren't posted online yet.

Have a great day!!

What I Like About You!

Another Layout using Scrappin' Great Deals' April Scrapbooking Kit!  Really like all the colour in this month's kit - the navy paper by Authentique, yellows & oranges, splashes of red!  And the MME of course - love the latest releases (On the Bright Side, Fiddlesticks and Follow Your Heart are represented in the kit), they are all so versatile!! 

Hope you all have an amazing Easter Weekend!

My Favorite Blessings

My three boys taking a break in the shade of the tree, sipping on juice boxes.  Love this picture of them!  The layout was created with the April Scrapbooking Kit from Scrappin' Great Deals.  I even managed some white space, which is a challenge for me!!  I used some stamps from the Unity SMAK kits that come magically to my house every month!

Pop over to the store blog today to see the whole kit and some layouts that Sheila created!
