Guess What!!!!!!!!

I was featured on the Echo Park Blog!!!! I was doing my normal blog reading while the kids happily play together. When lo and behold this layout of mine was spotted in my reading! Here is the actual post and the layout for you to view. Thank you Echo Park for making my day! :) I love your paper.
I also used the same sketch from Sketch Support but turned it on its side this time around. Gotta love the versatility of sketches.

Using a Sketch

I have just started getting more into scrapbooking with sketches these days. It really gets my creative juices flowing when I think I just may have lost the mojo for a while, or maybe it has more to do with the fact that the only time I scrapbook is after 9:30 at night. But I usually hit a huge creative rush when I use a sketch and am able to even complete more then one layout in a night! One of my favorite sites to use sketches from is Sketch Support.

Oh and I'm really into navy blue these days on my layouts. Not sure why but its a fun alternative to black or grey.

Another addition of What I Know For Sure.

The smaller the Crocs the cuter they are!!! (Olivia's first pair :)

When you ask a four year old boy to take his picture, you NEVER know what you are gonna get.

I am now not the only purse fanatic in the family....welcome to the club Kayla. ( She brought this Disney Dooney home from her Disney Internship)

This little lady has one amazing voice! She had her first voice recital this weekend and did an awesome job!

Kayla is a smarty-pants
I never thought this would be something I know for sure but as they say you learn something new every day! This hypoallergenic Formula has made my little baby so much happier. After breastfeeding for 8 months and not knowing what it was that she was allergic to we decided it was time to give it a try and in 24 hours she was super happy and sleeping through the night again!

Have a happy day and don't forget to find out what you know for sure!

Inspired By-take 5

I've been scrapbooking late at night these days after all three kiddos are in bed. Doug and I usually watch a movie or a sports game while I scrapbook. I love it!

I was inspired by Olivia's new warm-up that I purchased for her at the Disney Outlet.

More specifically this one....
Using an add-on sketch from my new favorite sketch site Sketch Support I made my very own Minnie and Mickey Cupcakes. I love them!!! I cant wait to think of more characters that I can turn into a paper version of my favorite sweet treat!
