Perfectly laid back weekend!!

August 24, 2008

Happy Sunday all!! Did you have a nice weekend? Mine was perfectly laid back, and I loved it!! I got some scrapping done, the laundry (well, I am still finishing it up right now), and some cleaning done. Exactly what I wanted to do for the weekend. Also- you will have to excuse my post. It is super image if you make it to the end, you are my hero! :)

I got this layout done of my cousin's daughter, Kyla, yesterday afternoon. I LOVE to photograph this little girl, and add her to my scrapbooks so they will have some kids in them! :) I used a lot of KI Memories "Bloom" collection on this, and my favorite diecut butterfly from the Indie Arts cartridge for my Cricut. You can't really tell in the photo, but the bottom layer of the butterfly is all it! (Click on the image to see more detail!)
Do you want to know my secret about not getting (as much) glitter all over the place when I am using it? I don't SAVE it. I glitter my project, shake off all the excess...and the scrap paper that I used as my glittering surface gets put into the garbage with all excess glitter. Seriously...glitter is CHEAP! No need to get it all over and have to clean up to save a pennies worth of glitter. Try will want to use glitter more after you free yourself from trying to save it! Tee hee!

I am also a little late at posting this, but the beginning of August means I can upload my cards from the June issue of Cards Magazine. Here is what I had in the magazine that month!

And this is what my little brother was up to this weekend, besides football practice. Yep- he dyed his hair hot pink. Silly boy...but he thinks its cool. It is one of those wash out dyes, so his hair won't be pink for long...but the pads on the inside of his football helmet are all a lovely shade of pink. I bet his coach is THRILLED with that. Hopefully it washes out of padding as well as hair! (And seriously...what is up with teenagers sticking their tongues out in photos? They all do it, and I so don't get it.)
And last but not least, I haven't done this in I thought it would be fun. Here is a little peek at my CPS card this week. It will be posted on the blog later this week, and I will post the full card on mine after that! Be on the lookout...I really love my card this week. I used some of the new Scenic Route "Sonoma" papers....they are utterly gorgeous!
Well, that is all I've got for now. I have some other projects to share later on in the week, so be sure to check back! Have a great Sunday evening!

Less than two weeks until Panther football kicks of the season,
