I just love this cute little layout, so I thought I’d post it up here today. The graphics are a part of Nicole Young’s Fabrication Page Kit.

I’ve been away from the boys for the majority of about 4 days, and today I came home from work to find that they have grown right up while I was gone. Kyle is learning to ride his big kid bike, and Andrew is excited to tell me about his trip over to visit the middle school. Where has half my life gone?! I am too young to have boys this grown up! I don’t have much more to say besides that. I am happy that spring has brought us longer daylight hours, because it means they can actually go outside and play, and once in a while, I can go out too. Not much else to say tonight, so nanu nanu. 🙂

Muppet Party!


A month ago (HOLY COW–where did April go?!) I had a party for Kyle’s 7th birthday. It was Muppet-themed and I scoured the internet (ok, Pinterest) for cute ideas to go with our Muppet theme. I found a ton of cool things from and the directions for making this wonderful Kermit pinata from Alicia Policia‘s blog. I followed the directions mostly to the letter, except I made the sides and back flatter than she did on hers. It took me about 25 hours to do this from start to finish, but I love, love, LOVE how it came out, and it can be used again and again! Here is a page I scrapped one evening for my favorite one-hour Speed Scrap at DSP. I just adore these photos, and the party really was spectacular (even if only one kid from Kyle’s class came–he was perfect guest and there were lots of family there to party it up and appreciate my efforts).
