The Design X

Just wanted to share a layout i did for the Challenge blog the The Design Experiment. I was the guest designer this week. The challenge was to take your favorite quote and use it on a layout. I was so glad to get this as my challenge because i've been meaning to do this layout for a LONG time. Right when you walk through my front door on the wall the you see accross the room i have vinyl letter that says "we may not have it all together, but together we have it all" My family to a T - seems we are so chaotic at times even though i feel like i have structure for the most part - things don't tend to run that way! This is a classic picture that shows this - at Mason's baptism - i got 1 out of like 10 pictures that turned out okay -this is one of the crazy ones. I used a few of the past kits from Studio Calico - the patterned paper from the Fortune Cookie kit - LOVE IT! So head on over to the Design X and give the challenge a try! Great girls over there that came up with some fabulous layouts!!

Happy St. Patty's day too! We had a fun one here - havn't uploaded pictures yet - but will tomorrow and will share them later. I made a 'green' dinner - and Baylee wasn't too happy about it. This is how it played out when i set her plate in front of her..

"kucky rice mommy" B

"no sweetie - its yummy - it taste the same as always" Me

"no rice not green, rice white" B

" i know, remember it's St Patricks day - thats why your wearing green and we frosted green cookies" Me

" i no eat green rice" B

Then i put the green roll in front of her and you can only guess what reaction that brought - so needless to say - she ate green beans, some of the gravy and lots of cookies and frosting for dinner. No green rice or green rolls! It did look pretty disgusting - now your going to be wondering what i did to my poor kids........swear i will upload and share pictures tomorrow!
