Honest Opinion, my girls are Cutie Pies! Sometimes I'm just overwhelmed by how much I love them! The other day, I was taking a short walk with Makenna in the backpack while Hannah was taking a nap. I opted to not take the interom walkie-talkie thing because I was going down by the Lake and it was very noisy. Well, I took longer than I thought since I stopped next door for tea, (don't be alarmed, I was never more than a few hundred yards from home) and when I opened the door, there was Hannah, playing with her toys! She just says "Hi, Mama!" This was the first time ever that she climbed out of her bed! (a pack-n-play) She's not a climber! She only was able to do it because it's right next to a futon couch.
I have no weekend plans so far. Last night, my father-in-law came for supper, and he brought KFC with him. we had a good visit--his wife is in Mexico helping at an orphange for a few weeks. Today, my parents invited us to come over for a western round up they're hosting for their church--not sure if we'll go. Tomorrow, my husband is preaching both morning and an evening service, but I'd like to go the farm market/petting farm up north with the girls. I think it's going to be the last nice day, plus they offer hay rides and stuff if you go on the weekends. It'll be a fun picture and memory day if we go.
Last funny thing that Hannah did yesterday. I can tell that watching Dora the Explorer is paying off on her Spanish skills. She's in bed for the night and calling out to me, "MOMMY! Help me! Ayudame`! Ayudame`!" I was cracking up laughing!!
12x12 layout pages: idea came from Creative Keepsakes layout. The lg pics are cut 5x3.5 and the smaller ones are 2x2. I used Cutie Pie DP and cut the strips into 1" strips. I used Rose Red and So Saffron for the background colors. On So Saffron page, I used basic black to layer the pics on. I thought it made them pop a bit more. I used Pick a Petal stamps for accents in Rose Red, Certainly Celery and So Saffron. I used Word Window to punch tabs in Certainly Celery, and a strip of blue ribbon for accent. I wish I could get better pictures of my layouts. I don't use flash, and then they aren't crisp. I use flash and I get a glare. I position them in different ways by a window to get sunlight, and have the same problem--either too much background light that makes it hard to see, or get too much glare. I'll keep working on it.
