Junkie August Design Team Layouts!!

Despite a sick birthday boy this weekend, I still managed to complete my Junkie Design Team Layouts. This month I got to use some awesome new papers from GCD Vintage Boy Collection and BoBunny's Delilah Collection.

Take a look at the rich colors of Fall mixed with pretty pastel pink; all my favorite colors. Not to mention the beautiful die cut papers. I just love this line. The letters in the title feature some Heidi Swapp Acrylic letter. I love these things. I just adhered pattern paper to the back of the clear acrylic letters, inked with chalk ink and voila! I added a little felt trim around the die cut paper for accent. Flowers, always a must on all my layouts, top off the page. This is one of my favorite layouts!

The GCD Papers are wonderful too. If you haven't picked up any of the GCD Papers yet then you are really missing something. Their textures are unlike any on the market today. The Vintage Boy Collection not only has the feel of linen, but it is also embossed. I loved the little rockets so much and I really wanted to make a statement with them so I fashioned my own paper piecing pattern and made my own super-sized rocket embellishment. I love how it turned out. If you want to make one like it, let me know and I will send you a drawing that you can cut out and use as a pattern to make one for yourself. For the title, again I used Heidi Swapp Acrylic letters dressed up with pattern paper plus some Making Memories Passport chipboard alphas. I added a few Jolee planet stickers to add to the space theme and I think it topped the layout off nicely.

I was happy to complete these layouts because next week school starts and I am going to be pretty busy. I do have one more project to complete so stay tuned; I will be posting it soon.

Until Later,

Happy Birthday Wyatt!!!

It was about this time 12 years ago today that I gave birth to my sweet baby boy Wyatt. Weighing in at 9 pounds 15 ounces and 22 inches long, (whew he was a whopper) I knew immediately that he was a special boy! Since that day the time has flown by so fast. He says he is not a baby anymore, but of course, Momma knows better; he will always be MY baby.
I think my son is pretty amazing and here are some of the reasons why:

He is strong.
He is healthy.
He is EXTREMELY determined.
He loves loves loves the Indianapolis Colts.
He loves loves loves football.
He knows the game of football, forward and backward, backward and forward.
He has an amazing memory.

He can tell you what teams played what Superbowl, where, what year and what the final score was AND who the MVP was that year. Really...try testing him....he will amaze you!

He knows tons of obscure football trivia.
He plays amazing guitar.
He plays amazing saxophone.
He is kind.
He is thoughtful.
He is polite.
He is sensitive.
He is loving.
He is loyal.
He is extremely intelligent.
He is extremely organized.
He is hard working.
He loves to collect Indianapolis Colts Memorabilia.
He loves God with all his heart.
He loves his brother, although some days I wonder.
He knows and respects the power of Prayer.

I could fill volumes telling you about why he is so special. But suffice it to say he is one amazing kid!

Happy 12th Birthday Wyatt.

Your Dad and I love you very much and are very proud of you!

TGIF...where did the time go?

I am so glad that today is Friday. The week whirred by at the speed of light. It seems that time is going by so quickly these days. Perhaps a sign of age...nah! I am too young for that right!

I went by The Scrapbook Junkie today on my lunch hour and they had just put out the new BoBunny lines of paper. They are awesome. If you are in the neighborhood, you gotta see them. Kelli was also working on a huge shipment of GCD Designs, I can't wait to get some of those too.

This weekend, I am going to take my son shopping for school clothes. I can't beleive that he is going to start High School in just a couple weeks. He is already hard at work with Marching Band practice. We have been up at the crack of dawn every morning and they have been on the field to practice starting at 7:30AM. He has done great so far and is enjoying it..all except the getting up early, but he has been a real trooper. Of course there was the one day that I overslept and he made it on the field with only 2 minutes to spare. Whew! I need to take my camera and snap a few shots before school starts.

Football will be starting in a couple weeks for my youngest and he is completely stoked. Not to mention he will be celebrating his 12th Birthday next week. Before you know it the Indianapolis Colts will the nonstop topic of discussion around the house and Christmas will be knocking on our doors. Did I say Christmas? Eeek!

Fall is my absolute favorite time of year and I so ready for the heat to be over with. Of course the heat around here doesn't really subside unit November. Uhg. Fellow Houstonians will agree I am sure.

Well I better finish up a few things before the weekend starts.

Talk to you all again soon.
