Scrapping girl photos!!

It is not that often that I get to scrap girl photos. So I made sure to take plenty of photos of my nieces when we had them for the weekend. I framed one of each of them for my Brother and Sister in law and then got busy making some girl LO's for my book. I love all of them!!! But my favorite at the moment is:
Live out Loud
I think it is because I love the picture so much too!!
Here is a Close up of the Crocheted flowers!!

Not real happy with my kit!!!! :(

So I decided to order a kit through the mail. I really liked the colors and it was a great offer. Well I got the kit and over all the color is nice. But the rubons are crap and that is what makes the pages in this kit. I am very disappointed and have written the company to see if they can fix it. I do not want to say the name of the kit or the company til I hear back from them. But here are the LO's that I did with the kit. The rubons messed up on a few pages but overall it is a great kit.

Quality Time


There they are. Let me know what you think!!

Well we have been busy!!

Seems that the summer is here!! When did that happen?? How did it get here before I was ready for it!!! We are always so busy during the summer. With the days longer, we tend to be away from the house in the evening. The boys have us running all over town all day. I am beginning to think that I am just a taxi driver... "Mom, can you take me to ______?" or "Mom, can you pick up _____?" or "Mom, what's for dinner?" !!! Goodness, they expect me to feed them too!!! LOL!!!!

So we have been a busy family. From mini vacations, to watching my three nieces this last weekend... there just has not been a lot of time for much more. But I was able to squeeze in a few pages this last week. I was so happy about that. I also need to get some baby quilts done that are half finished. I just keep staring at them. I need to take time to finish them!!

So here is a LO I did last night. I am not REALLY happy with it and may add a few things.

The bling (Distress stickles, worn lipstick) was from a RAK I won on If the Shoe Fits... Scrap it!!! I love the group!! Go check it out!

Nanna LO 3-09
