Challenge yourself...

This layout is the last of three I finished over the weekend. It is a challenge also - for Rockin R Retreats...using a cute lil sketch. I didn't bring alot of embellishments to the crop - so I felt a bit limited when completing this one, but I still like it pretty well. The entire page are photos from Ivy's 4th grade awards assembly on the last day of school last year...her LAST DAY of ELEMENTARY school!!!

Working away...

This weekend I got to attend an all day crop with friends in Burleson. I was there for almost 12 hours..I only completed 3 pages, but did make good progress on several banners I am working on for my mom. The page below I did at the swap for a challenge in a local group I crop in. It was using a sketch.

I've been working on a Fall Tag Banner, similar to the Halloween one I posted, except I did the entire thing this time. The halloween banner was a swap on 2peas. I finally finished it up this weekend while my kids were was sure nice and quiet to be able to work.

My favorite tag is the last one...a spin-off of the infamous "hand turkey" from our childhood. Katie's favorite tag is the turkey used the indie art cartridge that had a bone on it and just made my own turkey portion and used a scalloped punch to make the "bite" portion of it.

My squatter now has a family!

I knew after taking the photo of my recent squirrel squatter - that she was pregnant or a new mother. The babies finally emerged for the 1st time this weekend. They are already pretty good size...but still small and oh so CUTE! We think there are 2, but possibly 3. We've all been having a great time watching them out the window.
