I'm featured on Jillibean Soup Spotting today!!!

I COPIED THE INFO BELOW FROM AN OLDER BLOG POST.... Because I had submitted the layout to Jillibean Soup and they picked it up and are featuring it on their blog today...OMG!!!  SO EXCITED:


Here it is again..

Now, on this layout, I used Jillibean Dutch Mustard Soup... I have to be totally honest...I totally scraplifted this design from another layout I saw...I'm so sorry that all I know is that her name was Helen and I've tried to contact her to give her credit ...

This is my "chickenbutt" layout!! Whenever someone says "Guess What?", it is always followed by "Chicken Butt". (journaled on the tag on the left)

Showcased at Nikki's Blog today!!

We actually had some rain here in Phoenix back in April and I got some really great pictures of Joseph playing in the rain with his Happy Face umbrella... so I knew that Nikki Sivil's "It's Raining It's Pouring" line was perfect for these after getting my hands on the papers (thanks Julie) are 2 layouts that I did and today they are being showcased at Nikki's Blog!!!!

Art & Handprints & Fishing!!!

This week at SKETCHES IN THYME we are having another "open" sketch challenge week!!  I used
the LEFT side of this sketch from SKETCH SAVVY

And this is my layout about Joseph's ART that his school PURCHASED from him for their

Also wanted to share a layout that I "totally lifted" but love how it turned out..  I saw a layout over on the Lily Bee blog by Ronda Palazzari -- and I had been trying to figure out how to scrap this photo of the "Stepping Stone" that Joseph gave me for Mother's Day and when I saw this layout, I knew..... so here is what I did:
(Thanks Ronda!! -- and I even used Lily Bee papers too!)

And I thought I'd share one more..... This layout is from our Ohio vacation this summer.  Joseph caught a bass on the very first cast EVER (first time he's ever been fishing).....  I used October Afternoon Campfire papers.  (and that glare is on the actual photo...  just a bad angle... not much posing going on when I wasn't really ready for him to catch a fish on the first cast....AND the fish was wiggly and Joseph didn't want to hold it!!)
