Sweet Smiles!

So I did take some time the other day and got to do some scrapbooking. I grabbed Ava's 2nd are all loaded, but nothing scrapped yet. I now have 2 finished layouts! The first one is a technique I've never tried before and I can't wait to get my new Papertrey Ink paper because I'm going to make a card for their contest like this. I love this Almost Amethyst color so guess what we'll probably be using next stamp club!!! I made a card with the same technique as the scrapbook page. The right picture is a close-up of my title. You can click on any of the images to see them larger too!

Take your patterned paper, either 3 or 4 designs and cut about 1 1/2" squares for the scrapbook and layer in a grid and for the card I used 1 1/4" squares for the same effect. What do you think?

As you can see, all is well here. We have to week off and start radiation probably next Monday. Ethan is having a ball being at home and so is Ava. Ava is quite the Mama's girl anymore! I don't mind though.

Here's Ethan in his new giraffe rain coat and Ava in her bug rain coat......they love to wear these, even if it isn't raining!!

Love the cards as well as the pictures of the kids in their rain gear. Picked up my order today from your Dad.

Love the way you used the designer paper. That's a great way to use those fantastic pads. I'll be keeping your family in my thoughts and prayers.
