Hey, Ya'll,

So far...that's been true! Check it out!

Here are my kiddos and my sweet Sister's kiddos right after the youngest of the four was born. This was a very simple layout to do. I just used the SEI background paper and some stickers from 1 sticker sheet. I added the hand journaling and the hand doodling. The dot-dash-dot-dash is one I use a lot. I also punched out the semi circles on the top right corner and one on the bottom right. I love simple scrapbook layouts!


Background paper: SEI Granny's Kitchen tea towel 7-9930
Stickers: Marcella by K - Well Worn Nashville Alpha - I believe these are from Target

Wednesday Kids Bible Club

The boys have been going to Awana Clubs at the church right down the road for 3 years now. This year, the leaders decided to do something different. It is now Wednesday Kid's Bible Club or WKBC. Well, they've always done "Twinkie Night" at Awana so they kept it for WKBC as well. Parents and kids get to dress up alike. Well, I'm usually a stick in the mud for stuff like this...just too many details in life but I got a wild hair and made these "not perfect" T-shirts. I heart WKBC in the I heart NYC theme. It was fun!
I also attached the 2011-2012 schedule sheet to the back of the layout...it is definitely part of the memory. : )

Supplies: Plain cardstock for the background. Random pattern paper from my scrap drawer (way to use those...go me!)staples, square "tile" stickers from Sticko Tile's Play Mosaic Stickers, and a photo frame

What about next month?

You just never know. We'll see...stay tuned to Youtube to find out.

Until sometime around the middle of February…
