Hi all! I hope you all are enjoying your weekend. Ours has been really good... starting with a backyard camp out Friday night and a pool/birthday party for my brother last night. Today we hope to just chill and hang out around the house.

Yesterday was particularly good because I got to scrap after everyone crashed in their beds... I defiantly don't do it enough and need to make a more concerted effort to try to make some sort of layout at least once a week. I've also been listening to The Paperclipping Roundtable (a free podcast that has different guests and scrapbooking topics each week... more info here: lately and it has gotten me back into the memory keeping mode. 

Anyway, here is my page...
Journaling reads:  
You. right now
You. rarely look at the camera (that is why I love this picture so)
You. two year old
You. girly girl with the most beautiful curly locks of hair
You. tutu lover
You. have a best friend Campbell
You. love broccoli and wear a size 8 shoe
You. were NEVER mommy's baby
You. only snuggle when you are sleepy
You. love your grandmas
You. are my reason why
A fun trend right now is decking out stick pins by add additional jewels, baubles or even small buttons to them... well I didn't have anything on hand that would work on pins so I improvised by adding a punched butterfly to my pins. I think it gives the same effect and I really like the look it gives. Here's another example on a card...

Well, that is all I have to share today.  A most sincere thanks for your visit:)

I love seeing your layouts :). I hope you get more time to do those, too, although I don't mind all of the fantastic card inspiration!
