Family frame

One of my favorite things to alter is plain wood frames as I love finding unique ways to display photos around the house. This is a recent frame I had lots of fun with :-)

I'm working on a printer's tray right now for an those things!

Speaking of assignments, I got my goodies from GCD for my guest spot - love the gorgeous stuff I got! Will share when I can :-)

Going to take Lucas for his very first haircut today... the boy's hair has exploded! Can't believe he is going to be one in 8 days, ack!!

Happy Monday, friends!

I'll blame it on mommy brain...

Yeah, these would be two more projects from when I was the guest blogger on the Jenni Bowlin blog a couple of months ago. I had previously shared the two layouts I had done, but I also made this little mini-album:

and this butterfly mobile (which is hanging in the doorway of Chloe's room):

I used the JBS butterfly stamp on transparencies with watermark ink, and then I heat embossed the images with different embossing powders. I then attached them to the little tart tins from JBS - Chloe loves it :-)

Tomorrow the kids and I get to celebrate the birthday of one of our favorite people... Daddy! Well, their daddy, anyway ;-)

Loved this day...

These photos were taken on Mother's Day. The kids and I were just hanging outside, and the big kids were blowing bubbles for Lucas (sorry, Chloe, you didn't make it into the layout lol). Lucas thought it was the funniest thing ever! Love those little moments :-)
We've done a lot of hanging around this week. We went to see The Smurfs Sunday night, and the baby came down sick later that evening, so we've been stuck in the house. We made fingerpaints, silly putty, baked cookies, went on the slip and slide, and we've played 6, 399, 293 games (at least that is what it seemed like lol) - mostly UNO. I'm definitely not complaining, though - I love games myself, especially UNO :-) I'm sure the kids are feeling a little cabin fever at this point, but we've gotten a lot of quality summer-time in. Good times :-)
