My 2 Sweet Girls

As I am sure many of you can attest, children grow up WAY too fast!  I was so lucky to have been able to stay at home for several of the years while my girls were small but for over a year now I have been back at work full time.  I LOVE my job but I feel torn wanting to be home for my daughters after school.  So happy to have decided to shorten my work week to four days!  This has made a huge difference for me!  I can do all my cleaning, grocery shopping etc. while my girls are at school and then have more time on the weekends for fun with them!  So blessed to have been able to do this...and I am sure they will be all grown up in the blink of an eye!

Another perk?  Home more often to take more pictures of my girls..ha!  For this layout, I used the gorgeous Now and Then collection from Teresa Collins.  I had so much clustering a bunch of embellishments within the heart!  Here is a detailed shot:

You Love to Read

Well I am still playing with all my new Webster's Pages goodies ... there really is nothing quite like digging in to new scrapbook supplies is there?  Especially all the gorgeous new collections from Webster's Pages!!!  This layout again features the fabulous Sweet Notes collection:

My daughter is crazy for reading right now!  Pretty awesome thing to love i'd say!  Her cousin gave her the entire collection of the Heartland series and my sweet girl dove in and hasn't looked back.  She even convinced me to read them after her so we could talk about them together.  I love my Mommy-Daughter book club :-)

Here is a close up of some of the details:

Time to go and kick my feet up and maybe grab a book to read!  If you have any great books you've read, I'd love to hear about them!!!

One day while driving I noticed a billboard that had the caption "be YOU tiful"  For the life of me I couldn't tell you what the billboard was selling but I do remember how much I loved that sentiment and immediately started to plan a layout in my head on how to use it.  (funny how everything can relate back to scrapbooking right?)

I want for my daughters, more than anything, to always feel proud of who they are and to stay true to who they are.

This layout features the amazing Sweet Notes collection from Webster's Pages.  

This collection has me at patterned paper but oh my...the overlays had me just giddy!  Here is a close up of one on my layout:

If you haven't seen all the new CHA collections Webster's Pages has are missing out!  Check them out on the Webster's blog HERE!
