Guess who emailed?

UPDATE on Altered Journal and Box: Ok, this is big news for me. Tim Holtz emailed...he loved the journal and box! My life is now complete. (just kidding, kind of) What a sweetheart he is. I can fly on this one for awhile. :)

It's Raining Thunder here in Oregon

Wow, it has rained like cats and dogs today...really hard rain which is so unusual here. Yeah...our garden is going to love this! My baby is scared of all the noise and just looked at me very seriously and said "It's raining thunder mommy". That will be our new phrase for storms.. too cute! I was pointed in the direction of this fantastic new website for scrappers that miss Simple Scrapbooks. Check it out!

I have just loved looking thru this site and reading what those inspirational women have recorded for us to read. I especially loved the section about how their lo's have evolved over time. I've wondered how mine will, since I'm pretty new to scrapbooking. You'll be sure to recognize some names here, and love getting to know some newbies, too. Click back to my blog and post a comment and tell me what you think!

Laugh Lines

I did this layout about some of the funny things my little boys say. I listed 10 things, five on each side of the hidden journaling tag, one side for each son, Tucker and Wyatt. I used 7 different paper patterns with circles or dots as well as handpainted/glittered circles or dots on the letters. There are circle cut papers and punched circles, and even circle ribbon. The buttons and chipboard sun and flowers also have circles shapes. This was had me going in circles! (Oh, if you want to see a photo close up, just click on the photo and it will zoom for you! Pretty nifty, huh?)
