Finally Friday!

So glad the weekend is nearly here. This summer has been almost a total bust. Wanted to do so much with the kids, but life just kept getting in the way. I think the kids are happy (thank goodness), but Mom is wishing she had planned more activities.

Still taking the week off from designing (post-CHA blues, I suppose), but I am busy working on some text for one of the Scrapbook Trends Magazines. Fun to see what you guys are working on as well!

I have a layout to share with you today. It's a birthday themed layout. For this layout, I enlarged a photo and added a colored digital word brush. Then I added text to the photo. I loved how the birthday paper went so well with the banner stamp (go Hero Arts). I love combining products from lots of companies. And those Maya Road stars are my favorite stickpins of all time!! They work with birthday, the 4th of July, and I just used them on a Halloween page. I hope 2Peas gets more in soon. You can see additional photos of this layout here at 2Peas, as well as, purchase supplies to create the layout.

I hope you have a lovely weekend!

Question of the Day: What are your weekend plans?

Mine involve some more work, cleaning, and laundry. Woohoo! ;)

  3. Amazingly enough...other than church, no scheduled plans this weekend!!
    So I'm really hoping to get my booty to the gym on Sat., and work on a vacation album (last year's family reunion...almost exactly a year ago today). We do have to go to an out-of-state wedding next weekend, so hope we can enjoy this one at home!
