Happy Monday

I had kind of a lazy weekend. Saturday we didn't leave the house at all and yesterday I did some washing over my mother's house. I took some pictures of Gabby @ the park but she acted so funky I don't think I have the shots I wanted. Yesterday we spent an hour in the cell phone store just to see what was wrong with my broadband connection. They couldn't find out what was wrong so they gave me a new one. Another thing my Smartphone has been dying out lately even after charging, he told me it was the off brand charger that will drain it. I'm like whatever so I bought a new one. This one isn't doing any better. I will have to get a new battery soon....

I did get some pages done and I had fun making them. They were quick to make, as one was drying I started a new page.

Here is Gabby, Farrah and my sister Meagan back in August this year. We spent some time @ the beach before she had to go home to Atlanta. First I cut the banners out of some scraps. I love the Basic Grey Soleil   line. Then I used Fancy Flight punch by EK Success and punched the top of the banners and inked them. I added some stitching and used Crafter's Workshop template and Raspberry paint dabber. I let that dry and used some mists. 

Ahhh, Gabby's first day of K4. At first she really hated it, she cried and cried, and cried. But after the kids had breakfast and a snack she was OK  She gave me a hug and kiss saying that she wasn't going to cry anymore and I left her. I was soooo nervous about her transition  Not that she's not smart enough, but she is smart as a whip. She's been in daycare since 12 wks old and has grown accustomed to the ppl there. She can be a bit funny acting and it takes some getting used to but you've got to know her to know how she operates. She did have a bit of a set back, I took her to school and I didn't expect her to spaz out but she did. 

And one final layout of Farrah attempting to swing on the monkey bars. She kept falling but she kept at it. On this one I used Marigold Dreams from SEI. I actually purchased 2 sheets because I loved the other side too. It's a pinkish color and you guy's know pink is my fav. I did some light painting and misting and used up more scraps of the Soleil line. You must get some!
