Love This Moment~

Oh the joys of sending the kids back to school!

I will cherish the happy feeling I get now, because I know soon enough that happiness will turn to anxiousness and possibly even dread.

There is a first year of Kindergarten coming very soon and two Senior years not that far off. Eek!

But, for now I look forward to the routine school brings and the chance for a certain little girl to use some of that endless energy she has.

Especially after this extended Christmas break. Oh my.

Back to school~

Love This Moment

A few ladies and I are participating in a Stashing Thru The Snow Challenge on the Cricut Circle Message Board.

What does this mean?

That we intend to USE all those scrapbooking tools, supplies and had to have items that we’ve collected.

Notice I said collected and not used.

The challenge this week is Dig It Out, Dust It Off, Put It To Use!

I grabbed this box that was sitting on the floor still full of the gorgeous Maggie Holmes Open Book Collection by Crate Paper.

The instant I saw this collection I knew I had to have it, yet there it still sat collecting dust.

On the floor. Sigh.

Please tell me I’m not the only person who does that!

And would you believe that the last 12×12 layout I made was way back in the middle of November?

So, it’s no wonder I sat at my desk for a bit wondering if I remembered how to make one.

However, I preserved with the help of a sketch, a great picture and some pretty supplies.

Now my big question is do I keep on with this collection or move on to the next box sitting on the floor? He he.

I used~

Hello 2015~

Happy New Year!

Have you seen the new DCWV Insta Photo Fun Collection at Joann’s? Swoon.

As soon as I did I ran right out and purchased it.

Hello 2015 Insta Fun

A lot of it.

Needless to say December was filled with keeping up with my December Daily album, so it all just sat.

Unless you count the times I had to chase down a certain 4 year old who was determined that at least one of the albums was hers.

So, I decided she was right.

Hello 2015 Cover

Each month she and I will pick out several pictures to add to her little album.

The Insta Fun pocket pages are perfect for Instagram sized pictures like 4×4, 3×3 and 2×3 pictures.

You know how that little girl loves a selfie.

And let me tell you she is super excited about this project.

She even chose the adorable little bear for the cover.

Thinking the “Oh the places you’ll go” phrase was perfect for the start of a new year I made a bit of Dr Seuss flair.

Now if you’ll excuse me, someone is already asking when we’re going to add the pictures.

That girl.
