This layout is a rare for me as it doesn't contain any alphabet stickers! I didn't journal much either. The sticker in the add-on pretty much said everything I needed to say.
Here's hoping our rain is over and that the sun will come out soon. :)

I am about two weeks overdue in posting these. I have several other projects to share, but the weather hasn't been cooperating with me.
Later this week, I'll be sharing some new layouts I made for Polka Dot Whimsy and Crop Chocolate.
Have a great week!

Jokingly, I suggested to Kevin that we should do something based on that for his Valentine's Day cards. He loved the idea. So, we had to do it. I made a photo collage with text so we could do 2-up on a 4x6 print.
We went with "Valentine - Will you accept this rose?" for the girls in his class. He wore his suit in the photo. I had to make his rose out of tissue paper and a green colored pencil. For the boys in his class, he put on his basketball uniform and the cards read: "Hey Friend - You're a SLAM DUNK!"Since there are more girls in his class than boys, we made more for girls and Kevin wanted a red background. We did a second funny pose with the rose in his mouth and the sentiment: "Hey Beautiful - Will you accept this rose?" for me and his aunts. Oh, and we gave that one to his teacher, too!
In closing, I'd like to share this layout I scrapped last week about last year's Valentine's Day. I am amazed at how much Blake has changed!

Luckily school was in on Friday and Kevin was able to play his Upwards basketball game that night. Our superstar scored EIGHT points!!! We were all so proud of him! On our snow days, I was able to work in some scrap time. I came across this layout that I remember making in the car (yes, you read that right!) on the way to Evansville for Thanksgiving. I hadn't journaled though. So, I added the journaling strips and called it done.

For my first layout, I wanted to use one of Shannon's layouts that had a big arrow on the page. Since the Christmas patterns I selected seemed more formal, I opted to leave off the arrow. This layout is more of an "inspired by" page than a scraplift. The main elements on this page that I pulled from Shannon's original include the strips to the right of the photo and the monogram circle wrapped in twine in the upper left corner of the page.
Layout #2 is a scraplift! I even pulled out my Scenic Route notebook paper for the background.

"Hey, it's ACDC" is an exact scraplift. Yes, I stole her layout. I admit. I liked it so much. The differences? Well, I used some chipboard stars since I didn't have enough corrugated ones and I used different papers and alphas. Plus, I cut the name of the paper line off the bottom strip of one of my papers and I added it as a "tab" at the top of one photo. Yep...MY idea there.
