Happy hump day!

Hey there, everyone! Today was my loong day of work, but i'm home now and catching up on my blogging and my American Idol (good combo, huh? :-) I'm dropping off some recent layouts. I bought a Valentine's Day placemat at Target with the plan to cut into it and use it on a layout, so I had fun doing that with this one (the tree, bird and butterflies are from it). Ahh, hard to believe my little Chloe was that tiny - I think she was just about 10 days old here.


This layout was made using the GORGEOUS (seriously gorgeous, I might add!) March kit from CMK. I did this for today's blog post at CMK - it was my turn to do our weekly Wednesday Words challenge, so my challenge was to create a layout about a family tradition. One of my favorite traditions that we have is making chocolate chip waffles every Sunday. It's a simple tradition, but a yummy and enjoyable one ;-)


So, what did you all think about the ending on the Bachelor?? I know i'm not the only one who watched! ;-) Hope everyone is having a great week!

What a great idea to use a placemat!!!! I just love your style and the detail work you put into each LO!!!! I was surprised by the ending of the Bachelor!!! I felt so sorry for Melissa!!!! I agreed when she said why didn't he put in more effort. I was really sad the way this one ended. He seems like such a dummy!

Jessica said...

Pearl said...

i am in touch with Lisa already, Staci ! & so far I haven't found a solution to my problem - short of using someone's internet access/pc to go to CMK! there's something wrong on my end I'm sure.

Leigh said...

I see the parts of the mat...love it! Tha Bachelor - crazy ending. I think it was staged.

Andrea Amu said...

Totally hated the ending of The Bachelor! Don't know why I waste my time, seriously!

I just loved that Baby Chloe page... just the sweetest :) The waffle page is great too. What a neat family tradition to have. I'm sure the kids really look forward to that every week :)

Have a terrific weekend, Staci!

OK - I seriously need to get the Farmer's Wife line. So cute!!!! Great layouts!

The Bachelor is 1 of the few reality shows I don't watch, but I read Melissa's interview on-line today. What a cruddy way to end the show!

Chrys said...

great layouts!!! Oh, and for Jason the putz...well, I'm glad he finally made up his mind and told the world he truly loves Molly....though wish he didn't have to hurt both girls in the process.

Stacy,
The placemat idea is just GENIUS!!! I'm totally using that! I LOVED the cute little Valentine's Day stuff they had at Target too. I bought the CUTEST little red cup with little birdies on it. I should have bought more, but I restrained myself and now after seeing your cute layout I SO regret it!

Yah, I watched the bachelor and I think that guy is SUCH a jerk! I didn't watch the whole season, but that left a really bad taste in my mouth.

Hugs!
Michelle @ AMM
