Crate Paper that is ;)
There is so much I want to do with this kit from My Scrapbook Nook!!!
I'm obsessed.

I've been working on adding more journaling to my layouts....it's sad when I look back and they say nothing.  I'm working on getting back into the reason I started this in the first place, to document stuff ;)

I love these little pictures of Samantha......learning how to throw a football from her grammy ;)
My kids have the best grandparents!!!  We are so lucky.
They are always doing for them. 
The gray pinwheel came in our kit, and I made the other two to go along with it. 
Love the pinwheels but they sure make my hands go numb making them ;)

I've been hanging on to these pictures of Samantha from kindergarten for a long time!
I love them so.  Happy to say I actually journaled a nice long bit about that day.
I'm so proud of myself ;)

I've got a few more pics from this day on my table working themselves into another layout ;)
I'll be sure to share when they are done ;)

Happy Tuesday, ya'll!

Ahh Crate, how we all love thee! These are gorgeous projects Carol. Do you make the pinwheels from scratch, or use a die?

YOU ARE SO TALENTED! Dont you know that I spend so much time looking at your works in the Nook gallery trying to find out how you did a page.

Wonderful layouts - your style is so amazing :) I have periods where I add lots of journaling to my layouts, and other periods without any journaling at all. It sure is nice to have some text to go with the photos :) Have a wonderful weekend :)

Love the unexpected color combo at the first layout: black, yellow and bright pink! It looks so fabolous!
I hear you on the journaling thingy. I'm pretty much there myself, but am getting better at it!
