So, I'm finally posting the pictures the littlest photographer took. He has begged me every moment of the day since this to take more pictures. He took the one of his siter as she was getting off the bus today. I took the one of the two of us together. Sometimes you have to squat down really low if you actually want to get in his shot, but he is getting better. That shot of his sister looks like he may have licked the lens or something! Well, I have nothing new to show today. I had a migraine most of the day and had some homework I had to finish up. Off to make my impact on the education world tomorrow! Have a wonderful Thursday!!

It started out with me taking pictures of the cute little bunny house the kids decorated last night. Then my daughter wanted to take pics and then the little guy decided he was quite the photography pro. I'll have to post his pictures later. I need to be working on my resume and not blogging. I just loved how cute they were lugging the camera around this morning when they are usually avoiding it like crazy. Check out my cutie T-shirt. I know...my mom is going to say I'm about ten years too old for it, but I SO don't care. I feel cool and I am 30 years old, so some days I need to feel this way. My daughter will be more than happy to take it off my hands at any time and it is great inspiration for a scrapbook page....right after I work on that resume!

Scrapbookers tend to be hoarders and collectors. Well, at least I am. We buy and buy and hoard and save and then yell "Holy CrOp! What have I done? I must USE! I must PURGE!" I end up feeling guilty and overwhelmed and try to cut back and then new stuff comes out and I begin to drool once again. But sometimes I just sit at my scrap table and I run my fingers through my buttons and look through my basket of fun stuff I have sitting on my table and I oooooh and ahhhhhhh and I remember why I had to have it and just sometimes all that "stuff" inspires me. and then I end up using every color frill I own on one layout. Hee heee hee.....
It was only supposed to be in the 50s here yesterday, but managed to get up to 67! The weather has been so yucky, we were just so excited. Even my 3 year old was just happy happy as could be. When I picked him up at preschool he said, "I hate my school, but I played outside today!" My daughter wanted to go to Target and use her gift card she got for Christmas to buy a new scooter. Looks like we are going to have another beautiful day and the little guy and I are going to enjoy it!

Joni wanted to know where to Art Warehouse!! They are often listed under Creative Imaginations! I know Two Peas In a Bucket has them Here. They carry the square swatch books, which are my very Favorite! Also this little website sells lots of Art Warehouse stuff.. ScrapHappy KT. Those links should take you right to the AW stuff. ScrapHappy didn't look like they have the square swatch books, but they have the regular ones. I know the square ones are around $16.00 which I thought was pricey, but when I got mine I was "wowed" at the amount of stuff in them. They are packed and I am used to paying $4.00 for one sheet, so you are getting your moneys worth! Plus I love all those circles!!! Also Rebecca at CMK said she had ordered the Art Warehouse stamps that Hampton puts out. They aren't in yet, but should be in the next couple of months. Rebecca runs great specials all the time and you earn rewards points when you shop there. Also her shipping is super fast. Creative Imaginations also has a website where you can see product...If you can't find something please let me know and I will be more than happy to help you track it down. My email is email@example.com!

I've been doing homework most of the day. How exciting. It doesn't seem like I've made much progress. I managed to take a picture of this layout that has been sitting on my desk forever! My sweet little sunshine. Finally we are having some sunshine here today. Hope it is shining on you today too!

I picked this up at Big Lots of $5.00. It looks much better with some Art Warehouse Beloved paper and my beautiful kiddos! The jars on top have buttons in them. I started sorting my buttons by color. We'll see how far I get with that one! Thanks for taking a peek! Happy Saturday everyone!

My kiddos were so sweet this morning. So excited just to get cards. My daughter wanted to go outside and catch snowflakes on her tongue before we left for school. It is freezing here! The bottom is a frame I made for the weekly challenge at CMK...using your scraps on home decor. Hope everyone finds some love in their day to share!

Everyone around here has been so sick. The little one has an ear infection, I still have a cold and my husband has been running a high fever with a tummy bug. Gross. So I'm still alive and have layouts to boot! Not sure how that happened. The top one is for CMK. The sponsor this month is 3 Bugs in a Rug. The bottom one is just for me, for fun. I love that picture of Austin and it has been sitting on my scrap table forever. I am going to try to do more layouts of him. Hope everyone is enjoying their Saturday!

Trish is the winner of the Friendship RAK! I made my mom draw, so it would be fair. I loved what she said on her blog about her husband also being her best friend! Send me your address Trish and I will mail it out this week! My email is firstname.lastname@example.org! Congrats and thanks for playing!

I am back! I managed to get sick, again! And then the kids got sick before I was completely well. The little one was the worst. He is still running a slight fever, but the doctor says it is just viral. So, I haven't managed to get much finished. The heart is part of something I am working on, but decided to share since the DT Inspiration at CMK this week is using rub ons directly on your photos. I heart my Art Warehouse swatch book rub ons (well, technically they are called impress-ons), but they ROCK as far as rub ons go. So, I saw these cute glass ornaments awhile back on Marah Johnson's blog and I lifted them and used my AW impress ons to make them. If you like to stalk blogs Marah's is a good one to stalk! My daughter is in love with the Caution Girl line and has been begging me to alter her stuff with that paper forever! Okay, I've got to go clean my house for the Super Bowl thing tomorrow!
