Lucky Me!

I'm not sure if you guys remember a few months ago I won some yummy Making Memory goodies and a Layout by Laura Vegas. Well - she finished the layout and I love it! Its a 2 pager and i love that even more because i can't bring myself to do them very often any more. She used the pics from our 4th of July venture up at the property and i just am so happy with how it turned out! Thank you so much Laura! Here it is: go check out her blog to see close ups! I went up to my sisters house last week and spent the day with her and her kids because her hubby was in ALaska. We had a great time - the kids loved every minute of it. We went to the little zoo they have up there and then rode bikes and watched a movie. So fun - here are a few pictures - i swear i will send them to you soon Karie.




One last thing - got my box from Scrapbook Trends with my layout in it today. Absolutley love this idea book! So much inspiration and fun things for christmas. I was a little disappointed in the way my layout was photographed - its on the very last page and it makes Baylee's face look really bad - real orangy and splotchy (are those words?) - but for the most part i'm happy with it. I will post the layout in a month or so!


Also got this magazine last week - LOVE IT! probably my fav magazine right now besides Scrapbooks ECT. really happy with the way my layout in this one turned out. great picture and description.

glad you liked the layout brenda ... was so happy to do it for you! and great pics of you and the kids ... you guys look great!

ok .. now i'm going to be stalking the truck for my copy of the ST holiday book! i did see a copy of it ... and i will tell you that my layout in there didn't photograph well either. it looks super dark. which is kind of funny ... since my tip had to do with taking pics earlier in the day on halloween to get the lighter look in photos. lol!
