Bath Time Love

Hi Everyone!! I had a great time away at my scrap weekend. I pretty much got nothing done but it was a great time! Not even my walking cast put a damper on things. I made 2 layouts and 9 cards. Now before you are super impressed, let me tell you there were girls that did over 40 layouts over the weekend! Now you can be impressed with them.

Here is one of the 2 layouts I actually completed. I had alot of fun going through my stash and using papers I've been hoarding. Probably for years. This one was done using the Mia collection by Crate Paper.


I had this cutie pie photo of my sister and my niece after bath time. I made this banner by punching out circles and then folding them over. I strung some baker's twine through the half circles and added some bows.

Yes, that's a 3. I ran out of e's in that alphabet and I had to compromise! I also used a big bling heart I had been hoarding. Yeah for using my stash!!


That's all I have today!! I am done with week 1 of wearing this walking cast. And let me tell you...IT STINKS!!!!!!!!!!!!! But I have to wear it, so i'm trying to be positive. So I used the word stinks instead of sooo many other words I could have used. Ha ha! I have to just give it time. Like i've said before, patience is not my strong suit.

Hope your week is off to a good start. Thanks for stopping by!
