8 layouts in one weekend!

yay for me!  I had a great weekend last weekend - we scrapped our little hearts out.  We got there about 2:00 and setup - and seriously just scrapbooked until 3:00 a.m got back up at 9:00 and went at it till 10:00 that night.  We even got take out this time instead of going out to eat.  We watched 5 chick flicks too - while scrapping.  More than anything though - it was a great time - with 3 great girls - who i'm lucky to have as friends (and family).  So i thought i would pop in and share a few here - the first one i used alot of Jillibean soup - i won a fun prize pack on their blog like a month ago - Love their product - this layout is of my nephew Cord and my Ethan - who seem to like to cause trouble :)! 
I have to say I LOVE the corrugated letters - the colored ones are so fun.  The background paper is the new cardstock from Cosmo Cricket - i just sanded the embossed design to get the distressed look. 

The next layout is using the Anthology line from Studio Calico. Great line - great colors, textures - everything! I loved it - this layout SUPER simple - but i didn't think it need much either - just kinda out of the norm for me.  But i still love it - Mason is growing up so fast  kinda makes me sad!
And last but not least another Studio Calico layout - Used the March kit for this layout - i'm behind a bit on kits.  But i sure love opening up a new one and having all of the inspiration right there in front of me.  The doilies on this layout i bought at a family reunion that one of my Grandma's sisters had crocheted.  They went SO well with that paper.  I added a few extra things - but mostly kit!
I just realized going through all of these layouts - that i misted EVERY layout but the Trouble Makers and another.  Thats 6 out of 8 - loving that stuff!  I'm not to great at it - and there never is a rhyme or reason where - but i love it.  Thanks for taking a peek!

This Saturday is National Scrapbook Day - anyone scrapping????  Baylee has her very first Dance competition that morning that i'm so excited about - she looks so darn cute in her costume.  I've had to hide it so she doesn't put a hole in it!  But that afternoon i get to hang with some friends in Salt Lake and do some more scrapping - how lucky am I - two weekends in a row.  Dean will be in Lake Powell for 8 days so i think i will need the break!  So what are you doing to celebrate???
