so i have been scrapping like crazy. Serendipity's Altered kit is full of LYB Love Notes and Teresa Collins Crush! yeah! so stay tuned for that Sunday...i looove how she mixes papers for you..not just one kit of the same line, kwim?

here are a few things i have been working on. i am at home again with henry, double ear infection. poor kid, things have been crazy 'round here. brian is taking off a day or two next week so i can get caught up at work. he is good like that! and that takes me to what i am thankful for today...i am thankful to have a scrubby that realizes my career is important to me.

i made these, found a template on the internet...stay tuned for my tutorial next week over at Serendipity Scrapbooks. Kristen sent me some GCD papers that i have never seen before called Chianti {ahem, LMBO here b/c that is a fave wine of mine}. so i made these cuties for brian when he goes away on his business trip in a few weeks.

Here is a layout i did for a tut over at SavvyNSassy. It is a ribbon club so i focused my technique on using ribbon like patterned paper. So the polka strips along the bottom are all 1.5" grosgrain ribbon {which happens to be on of my faves ;) } the journaling is tiny but it just talks about how bathtime is like playtime at our house! henry would stay in there forever if we let him, as long as he has a washcloth to suck on. too funny.

oh, and if you know me and my sense of humor {dirty and sarcastic, LMBO!} i have to show you avie for the Superbowl Crop over at Simply Obsessed!
