I started this layout a couple days ago and set it aside because all I had was the journaling to finish. While I was chatting with the girls on the live ustream this morning for Scrapclubs.com, I decided to finish it then, it was so cool, like a live crop. Terri was even scrapbooking. If you have not seen the live scrapclub show yet, you should check it out, Terri goes through different kit clubs and shows you what comes in it. Today she did the new LRS kit. I will be working on my April LRS DT kit stuff tomorrow night and this coming week. I just got some pictures printed for the layouts :)

The layout above I used the new April Scarlet Lime main kit. It was sort of a little challenge to myself to finally use one of the Scarlet Lime kits I have been hoarding lol. They are just so pretty, I love to just look at them lol. This kit was amazing, it came with so much stuff inside, Cardstock, patterned paper (a mix of different lines, that go well together), a few different ribbons, rubons, chipboard accents, labels, a stamp, A package of thickers, another package of alphas- Adornits, fabric, chipboard diecuts and a mini bag full of different embellishments like, flowers, fabric flowers, buttons, tags. It had all the right stuff to make this layout above plus SO MUCH MORE for more layouts and some cards. Almost everything on the layout is from the April main kit, the red thickers and the green crystals are the only things not in this kit but they did come from two other Scarlet Lime kits, so it's 100% SL :)

Now my goal is to use all my other Scarlet Lime kits lol. Okay well I need to get some chores done tonight before bed. We have a busy weekend :)

My CX March Assignments

For March we had a free month, the only thing we had to include was the Cricut or Cuttlebug dies. I love using Basic Grey so I used some older stuff and some newer stuff. Check out the CX academy for more details on these two layouts :)

43 weeks old, and some randomness...

Photobucket


I decided to get alot of my housework done last night before bed so I could have a "free-ish" day. If you call having a sick child home from school a free day lol, for the most part I got to read some, did a little laundry and I edited a few pictures. Getting ready for my DT assignments from LRS for April, the kit should be here within the next week or so, now that our spending budget for anything extra is pretty much gone since Dustin quit his second job, I can't afford to get the add-on's that go with the LRS kit so I will just be working with the main kit, it's been a LONG time since I have worked with just the main kit, no addons, I can't wait to get started. On the kit note, I did get two layouts picked up for ST using two months of kits from LRS, I was excited about that :) They will be in back to back issues (July and Aug).

So now that Austin is in Little League, it gives me a chance to get in more of a workout during the day. While he is practicing or playing a game I walk with Adriana Isabella around the park. Friday I walked for...

lol yep I had my camera with me that day lol, I was taking pictures of Adri at the park and took a picture of Dustin's watch I keep with me while I walk, I use the stop watch feature, it comes in handy. I love that if I have to stop I can click it off and when I start up again I click it to start right where it left off.

Here are some pictures of Adriana, that I took at the park that day. She is now 43 weeks old. I just can not believe that! My baby will be ONE soon (shock!). She is doing great! Still a bit anemic but is taking her iron/vit meds and will go back for another blood test at the end of the month. She is eating real rice,real banana's and the baby food jar kind ALOT! It's her favorite. She waves hi to everyone and will way bye bye too (she even says it). She claps her hands together and says yaaaaay. She says so many words now, Dada, Mama, star, nana (banana), naw naw naw (which means no, and she only says it if we put her in her chair and she does not want to be in it.), hi, bye bye, ah-oh, and a few more. She is so smart! She is starting to put shapes in the right spots, she loves music so much and dances to it. She is almost walking now, she will stand up without holding on to anything and try for the first step but falls. I think she will have it down in a couple weeks. Her hair is growing so fast. I have to cut her bangs every couple weeks (as you will see in these pictures she was in need of a trim across the front of her eyes lol, which I did today, she can now see without hair being in the way lol).

Okay here are those pictures...
