KNK May Reveal #1

Here's my first reveal with KNK's May kit. I LOVE this kit.... all the elements are so different but still coordinate so well! This enables one to create several projects that all look very different from each other, from the same kit. I love that. :)This layout was difficult to photograph, and I wish I could have gotten some decent detail shots to share with you! The pictures are Gracie, swinging in a rainshower in our backyard. The way the sun was shining through the rain, the water looked like diamonds falling from the sky. She grabbed the closest pair of shoes she could find (her big sisters') and ran out to play in it. I love these kinds of photos the best.... impromptu, unrehearsed, unposed. Perfect. I kept the layout simple, to let the photos shine.Thanks for stopping by! More from this kit to come, check back with me in a week or so. Happy scrapping!

Extra stuff

Every once in a while I am able to get some extra scrap-time in that's just for me, so I wanted to share a couple layouts with you :)

I did this one for a call for the Memory Makers Gallery book, it didn't get selected so I can show it here! I actually submitted three layouts to that call, and one did get chosen and I am very excited about that! The book is tentatively available by May 2011.
This I did for a sketch contest!

Thanks for looking! I'll have a reveal in a couple days with the spectacular May kit from Kit 'n Kaboodles. Wait til you see this kit, it's really gorgeous, the best from KNK so far this year. Of course I think I say that with every new kit. :)

'Til next time, happy scrappin'!

New Additions

So instead of mountains of candy this year we decided to get the girls some chicks! Of course they got a little candy, and what we didn't give, Grandma & Grandpa were glad to fill in :) These are guaranteed little girls, so we won't have any rooster problems later on. Aren't they cute!So far, the new babies are all the girls can think about and they want to hold them all the time! I am confident the new will wear off a bit once they get a little bigger grow a few more feathers, but for now those tiny fluff-covered chicks are too hard to resist. This picture cracks me up.....
So sweet!

By the end of the first day with us, the chicks were totally exhausted from all the holding and playing and trying to escape the grip of little fingers. But they are much calmer already and I think they will be really tame when they're full- grown.
They'll be inside for about 6 weeks or so, which will hopefully be enough time for my husband to get the coop built behind the shed in our side-yard. Since my greenhouse bit the dust, we have a perfect place for it! We're all looking forward to fresh eggs, too, but we'll have to wait a while for that. Having chickens should be an adventure (especially with a curious cat and an over-active puppy). Wish me luck :)
