Card and Page Monday... Play Dates


We had a great weekend. Did you? Ours was full of great friends, memories and firsts. I just love watching my girls grow and learn & this weekend we had some time to just enjoy & appreciate that. Campbell has been playing soccer and to watch her pick up new physical skills is just amazing. She has also started reading... it blows my mind that my baby is now reading.. and how quickly they pick it up once they start. And Hadley... what can I say about her... she imitates everything that her big sister does and is such a cutie while doing it. Hadley's a beauty whose smiles and little giggles just melt my heart. Life is good. 


Here is a layout created using PageMaps new sketch. My baby's best long distance girl friend came to visit this weekend-- they had a ball.



Now that the girls don't see each other very often, I try to jot down everything they do when they get together... I hope to scrap each of their play dates and put the pages together in an album for them when they get older. They have been playing together since they were babies, so I think the album will be pretty special.


And here are a few cards made with continued inspiration from the layout. I thought I'd make it a "krafty" week to celebrate the fact that our Archivers store finally stocked real kraft paper (yeah!!! no more shipping charges:)





Have a fabulous week!

Love the colours, love the girls and love the layout with the special "menu" of things to do - almost as good as a day at a beauty spa
Good Luck
