Catching up...

Last week we had TWO more SNOW DAYS. Ugh! That puts us up to 11 missed days for this school year. We are hoping that there won't be any more!

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.
The layout is a lift of a Laura Vegas layout I saw on the Jillibean Soup blog last fall.
I used my January kit from Studio Calico for this layout about fried green tomatoes.
I sanded down the alpha stickers that spell "green" and then sprayed them with Mr. Huey green apple. The tag is actually the My Mind's Eye packaging that the trims in the kit came on.
"Popcorn Delivery" uses papers and corrugated alphas by Jillibean Soup with Doodlebug letter stickers, too. It's a near exact lift of of layout by Shannon Zickel on the Jillibean Soup blog.
I love these alphas!
I was also inspired by a turkey I saw on another Shannon Zickel layout, so I made one myself that is similar to put on this layout. (The layout isn't a lift.)
I think I should have used bigger hearts for my feathers. Tomorrow it is back to school. I'm really hoping for a full week this week!
