Busy, Busy, Busy!

Good Morning!  It has been over a month since I have updated my blog......I have been very busy caring for my grandchildren during the day and helping their mommy & daddy in the evenings.  Today I am sharing three layouts, one 2 pager, and two single layouts.  I can now say I have officially finished Ava's second year.....finally!

The 2 pager was scrapped using the two page sketch from the May Create Magazine....love their sketches!  I also love the Simple Stories "Say Cheese" Collection and have used it on several layouts.  I knew we wouldn't be going to Disney World or Disney Land in the near future, therefore, thought I would go ahead and have fun with one of my favorite collections.  The colors were perfect for Ava's 1st Birthday "Cars" themed party.   
SS Say Cheese Collection, Paper Co Elegant Nights, Jolee's Disney Elements,  BG Photo Frame,  BG Stickers Fonts, Title-ATD Stickers, Misc Words-Tim Holtz.
I love the photo of my daughter, Raegen, and granddaughter, Ava.....such a special moment.  This layout was my last layout in Ava's second year album.
Paper Studio Persnickety, Bo Bunny Back To Back's, BG Hey Girls/Strips Under Photo, K & Co Adhesive Borders, BG Tags, BG Brad & Buttons, Studio Calico Wood Veneers, Misc Words-Tim Holtz,  Heidi Swapp Title, Studio 112 Epoxy Stickers, Misc Flowers & Buttons. Dovecraft Doilies.

I tried something new on my last layout.....Gesso!  I have seen several of my favorite scrappers use it on their layouts and decided to gave it a try.  The sketch for this layout is my version of the single layout from the June Create Magazine.  
BG Hey You Collection, Cor e' donations, Tim Holtz Dot Fade Stencil, ACMI Gesso, DCWV Gem Stickers,  Cricut Cuttin' Up Font, DCWV Serenity White Glitter/Title, & Ki Gel Candy Epoxy Stickers.
I have photos waiting to start my next layout, but might not get it started this week since my SIL is out of town on business.  I might have to wait until Ava starts pre-school this next week to get back to my layouts.  She will be at school for three hours in the mornings and Grayson normally takes a good nap during that time.....hope that doesn't change! 

Wishing everyone a blessed day.
