Kayla is 5

Okay...she turned 5 about a year and a half ago...but I finally finished her Year 5 layout. I like to make a layout each year for my kids. Sometimes they have likes, dislikes, what music they are listening to at that time, favorite books, etc. This time I had Kayla write a little note herself.

I made this using the February kit from 3 Scrappy Boys. I was lucky enough to be a guest designer and had the chance to play with this lovely Fancy Pants paper!!


Yes, my favorite butterfly cut from my Indie Art cricut cartridge is baaaack!!! How I **heart** those butterflies!!



The little Maya Road envie holds the notes Kayla wrote. It says what she likes to do, what she wants to be when she grows up, etc.


I love that she will be able to go back and look at that note later on. How fun to look at your old handwriting!! I also had fun playing with some newish Lily Bee papers, also in the 3 Scrappy Boys February Trio kit.

I looove that my sister will take these silly photos with me!!

I added some pearl swirls from my stash and pleated my paper. These are such pretty papers!!! I also made some cards, I couldn't stop with one layout...



Whew...that was alot to post! Thanks for making it through all those photos. I was home with sick kids yesterday and today it was back to work for the week. We have a busy weekend planned. One super fun thing is I get to meet up with Beth and her family!! They are going to be in the area and we are going to meet for dinner and drinks. I've met her only one other time and I can't wait!!!

Thanks for stopping by!
