with my two girls as another blizzard hits Iowa. Seriously, this weather is getting old. I get so stir crazy in my house trying to keep two little girls entertained. I'm longing for warmer temperatures and the color GREEN! I can't wait to load the girls up in our stroller and walk around the neighborhood. As soon as we can, we'll be outside as much as possible!
Since I last posted, I celebrated another birthday. Skippy! I'm a little sarcastic as it was just another day around here. Birthdays just seem harder and harder to be excited about as you age. My thoughtful husband did surprise me with a beautiful bouquet of flowers and that brightened my day, for sure. We're going to enjoy a date night sometime soon to continue the celebration.
One bright moment this time of year is the annual winter Craft and Hobby Association show. For you non-scrappers, trade shows are held in January and July where manufacturers release new products. I LOVE seeing all the new product and the trends in scrapping for the spring and summer. So many companies are producing products with a vintage, shabby vibe which caters right to my style. I've got a little birthday money saved up so I can indulge a little...can't wait! :)
Today's layout, highlights you guessed it...Melissa Frances products! A couple years ago, Melissa put out this gorgeous fall line. I had Glen take some pictures of me with the girls this Thanksgiving as it seems we don't get too many photos of just mom or just dad with the girls. All patterned paper, lace trim, stickers, pearls, diecuts are Melissa Frances. Again, I desaturated my photos to go with the softer look I wanted. I love the 70s feel this page has.
Well, time to start thinking about lunch. More to come soon! :)
