{ 6.21.06 }

Like my new title format? :) One less thing to have to think about! (unless I get the date wrong)

Above is another We R Memory Keepers project that I completed yesterday. I've been wanting to use this silly photo, so it just happened to work with this layout! This is a 6x6 page. It's difficult to work with such a small space sometimes, but once you scan it it's hard to tell it's small. The journaling is hard to read, so if you click on the photo above it will take you to a larger image. And I know I keep saying it, but We R Memory Keepers' products are WONDERFUL! These chipboard letters are so much fun! And I cut the little birdie out of a patterned paper. I love the old-fashioned look of it. :)

Today includes grocery shopping, laundry, and trying to do another WRMK assignment. I'm trying to be good about putting scrapbooking last. Not always easy! :) Don't you find that hard to do when you have new products and photos just sitting there, looking at you?

Last week Kimber McGray came to Austin for a visit. (not to see ME, but to see family, lol) She and I are on two design teams together! We got together one day and went shopping on South Congress and had lunch at Guero's Taco Bar. So much fun!! Kimber is a hoot! She took some pictures of some of the weird things we found in Uncommon Objects, a funky junk shop with TONS of things to alter. She made THIS layout with some of the photos she took. I just love it! Kimber made me the most gorgeous green paisley quilted bag, too. I will take a picture of it and post soon...when I'm out of my PJs. :)

A few things that I feel blessed by today: Being a stay at home Mom and watching Noah eat oatmeal in his pajamas. Waking up to freshly ground/brewed Starbucks coffee. Having my Mom live just 3 blocks away.

Stay cool...first official day of Summer!

Love this layout Jennifer!! Love it! I love the little bits about you (and I'm still laughing about the "tomatoe" talk yesterday!! LOL! That was too funny!
You are so lucky to have your Mom live close by. I wish I did too. Maybe some day.

BTW, can you tell me how you responded to me last time I commented on your blog. I want to be able to do that from my blog too and don't know how!

Thanks! You're the best!

This is the coolest layout - just fabulous! And I love WRMK products! I've been holding off picking some up, but after seeing this I may have to indulge. And that photo is perfect for this layout! Love it!
