Happy Thursday

I forgot how fun it is to use whatever supplies you want, when you want, not working from a kit, or having to use certain products or using things you only have enough to share. I am liking this scrap for hire project and I think I might just do some pages for me!!!!

Use it ALL up

3 more layouts with my April kit!!! These are the Cricut die cuts you will get with the kit except for the letters which can be cut if you come to the crop. You have to have it now right? The craft paper is by Jillibean Soup. LOVE it. It is not in the kit but can be purchased at Bella of course. Hope this gets you inspired!!! Have a great Friday!

Easter Sunday

Was it Easter or Christmas? The Easter bunny used to bring kites, chalk, jump ropes, coloring books, stuffed bunnies, and of course candy. Lots of peeps, jelly beans, and chocolate eggs were always in the baskets too. This is the year the true Easter Bunny was revealed... which meant the Easter bunny knew exactly what the little bunnies wanted and that he/she was in trouble if the basket was weak. The Easter Bunny passed with flying colors, except for when the bill comes in..... then the Easter Bunny will have to go to jail! Danielle has a new Spring wardrobe that she actually likes and fits, has already started reading the new books, has hung her new bird feeder, and had cadberry eggs for breakfast. Successful basket #1. Isn't that the most adorable skirt? I wish it came in mommy sizes! Matthew has almost completed his Halo mini figure collection, Marvel super hero collection, and has started his Lego agent collection. Successful basket #2. Grandma came over bright and early and added lots of goodies to the collection. New video games, clothes, mini figures.... looked more like Christmas than Easter. We learned from Grandma that peeps grow in the microwave. Matthew actually let me semi dress him up for church. We were the earliest we had ever been. The "fainter" was nervous but made it through without any trouble. After mass we were off to Auntie Doris and Uncle Vinnie's for some great food, relaxation, and play time with Samantha and Joe. More candy and goodies from Auntie Doris and Uncle Vinnie and Auntie Cheryl and Uncle Ed. Matthew and Joe could have cared less that it was freezing out.... I could not stop taking pictures of Matthew... his eyes were sooooo blue today! Auntie Cheryl learned all about Halo in depth.... Matthew talked funny like Ed all the rest of the day and kept us in stitches in the car on the way to Auntie Laura's. Daddy drilled Aunt Jean for ancestry information. One of these days he will be able to relax.... Aunt Jean is one of the most amazing women I have ever met. She is so full of life and energy. I love spending time with her and hearing her stories. There is nothing like a sister... Off to Auntie Laura's to see Gramps( who looked like a grizzly bear) and have a blast with a family Wii competition. Uncle Larry doing the Hula Hoop almost made me split a gut. OMG why did I stop taking pictures!!!! Awesome day, Awesome Easter, with an awesome family... We are blessed.

Oh my goodness AM i busy!!!!! I am working on a new venture for the art store. I am very excited about it!! More to come on that next week. I have been hired by a lovely lady to create an album for her husbands 60th Birthday in July. I have never done scrapping for hire before and am a little overwhelmed with all of the STUFF she gave me and wants to add. I might have bitten off more than I can chew but I will do my best. A lot to do today and not enough time EVER. A few layouts i did over the past 2 weeks to share. Strike a pose is my friend Kim's daughter. I stole this picture from her when I saw it. I just had to scrap it!!!! So excited that it is APRIL. I woke up this morning to some very loud birds out my window.
