I finally got around to finishing the layout I started the other day using my Swirlydoos kit and I'm sad to say that it didn't quite turn out like I had envisioned. I was trying to emulate Finnabair and although I think I got some of it right, when I went to spray my Smooch Spritz (LOVE!!!) I didn't have the bottle turned correctly in my hand - not once, but twice! - and ended up spraying in the wrong place. Darnit!

So the layout really doesn't do anything for me, but I still did it and it still counts toward my total so here it is:

And I'm not one to let fear hold me back so rest assured - I will try again.

This next one I did with some Prima papers from my stash. This is another one of those photos that I already scrapped, but the last one I did in B&W so maybe it doesn't count? LOL.

This is one of those 10 minute jobs and I admit it's pretty simple, but I usually like them that way. It's also a real struggle to not be home with all the embellies I collected over the years. I have only a small bit of stuff here in TX so my hands are tied with limited choices.

And last but not least, this is another using my Swirlydoos kit. I just LOVE this month's box of goodies. I am almost at the end of my gift subscription though and it's gonna kill me to not get my box anymore, but it's just the way it is, I guess.

Anyway, this photo was taken by Rebecca Droke of the Pittsburgh Post Gazette and it was taken at Kevin's Purple Heart Ceremony. It's one of those rare photos that all three of us are actually in and I think it best shows naturally how much love there is amongst us. We are just such a lucky family in how well we all get along - not that we don't fight - but generally, we are all really good to each other. I sure love my kids!

Again, another VERY simple layout, but this one was more about the journaling.
