Thorns in my side

Hey, I didn't pick the title! My friend Linda did! Yes, I caved to peer pressure! lol ALthough, there are days...... My little beauties can try the patience of a 1000 saints, but then again, they can also be the sweetest most considerate children in the world as well. I just have the advantage of having mine with me 24/7 since I homeschool them and with that much togetherness there are days that make me question my sanity about that decision.

ANyway....again with the Cosmo Cricket papers....I really do love this cherry paper. Seems so summery and yummy!

Home Suite Home

Judy at Simply Scrapping sent the design team an awesome pack at the beginning of summer. I LOVE getting her goodie boxes and I went crazy using up most of it right away. The Cosmo Cricket Early Riser papers (or something like that, totally blanking on the lines name right now) were a bit cutesy for my taste and I had a heck of a time using them.

See, we are SO not morning people here. Actually, as I type it is 11 am and I am still in my jamas and Livy just rolled out of bed about 15 minutes ago. Early Riser? There are NO morning pics or breakfasty kinda things in our world. And like I said, a bit cutesy and well, I'm not really a cute kinda gal.

But, they did have a fun homey feel and I decided they were perfect for our hotel pics from vacation. We got a suite and the girls never wanted to leave...they loved the little kitchen, having cable (major novelty in our world) and that said cable was on a tv inches from their sofabed.

You Enchant Me

I'm not totally sure if I am done with this page...something is just off (suggestions are welcome). I took some June Bug papers and teemed them up with this great Glitz Designs cardstock sticker from Simply Scrapping. I LOVE these colours....the purple and orange just look so exotic yet fallish and fun.

I Ain't Mis'bee'havin'

Okay, seriously, how freakin' cute is my nephew?! Livy snapped this pic of him getting into my purse one day when we were out shopping. I found it on my camera and laughed. My purse is a hugely fascinating place to the little guy, prolly because there is always some little goodie that I picked up for him stashed away in there (currently there are 2 sesame street figures and 4 mini Elmo board books, just goes to show)

Another layout using the BG June bug papers...these are so fun! I did 4 different layouts using these papers and they all have a really different feel! Love when you can do that! This paper was a bit busy though (I LOVE the patterned papers that have these kinds of designs, but they are soo hard to use as you don't want to cover anything!) so I just doodled a bit where I covered the design and then threw on a huge chipboard butterfly. A bit of liquid pearls to show his path and it was done.

There is a new look over at "Shoe" blog but the challenges are just as awesome as ever! The current Fashionista Friday challenge is to use the colours Red, Yellow and Orange in your layout.

Here's my take, the BG June Bug papers that are part of The Scrap Queens June Bug kit fit the bill perfect along with the matching stickers. I didn't have any yellow flowers...but no worries, I did have some light tan ones and my sunflower glimmer mist! A bit of spraying and the problem was not only solved, but I got a bit of shimmer to brighten my day as well!

Thanks as always for the inspiration ladies!
