Bad Day

What a beautiful day it is today!  The temperature is 7 degrees!!!  The sun is shining and the snow is melting!!!  It's messy...but the temperature and the sun make it worth it.

I've been really nostalgic lately.  I starting scrapbooking AFTER I had all my babies.  Considering my oldest is now 12 years old and my youngest is 4 years old, with a sweet 8 year old in between....I have alot of "catching" up to do.  I refuse to stress out about it and approach it when I see something that inspires me.  In 20 years....I'm sure I'll have a whole collection of scrapbooks that highlight many of our special moments together.

I was inspired to do this layout when I heard the song "Bad Day" by Daniel Powter.  You see, this song was a favorite of Liam's when he was 3 years old.  This boy would sing the song word for word whenever it came on the radio.  Music is such a huge part of our family that I really wanted incorporate it into a layout.

Here's the recipe:

Paper:  So Saffron DSP, Whisper White, Taken with Teal
Embellishments:  Rock-A-Bye Star, Oval Punch, Round Punch, Taken with Teal brad

I Heart You

I hope you all had a great Superbowl weekend.  We actually watched the game!  Football is not something we usually watch.  It was fun..and I think I'm finally understanding the game!  While "watching" the game....I couldn't help but scrapbook a little on MDS (My Digital Studio).

This layout was inspired by a challenge.  We needed to use Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo and Tempting Turquoise.  I don't usually use the colors from the Bright Family, but looking at how this layout came together....I'm going to use them more.


Paper:  Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, Tempting Turquoise, Melon Mambo  Large Polka Dot DSP

Stamps:  Garden Whimsy

Accessories:  Modern Label Punch, Tempting Turquoise brads, Melon Mambo brads, The Write Stuff II label
