balloon fest {a scrapbook layout} and project life 2013

Hello again! I'm getting pretty excited to finish my holiday mini-I've been keeping up with photos and my post-it notes. At the end of the month, I'll get everything printed out and put it all together. I think this one might just be my favorite one to date!
I'm also getting super excited to start Project Life in 2013. I have so many ideas of how I want to approach it-I know I won't be doing a photo a day but taking it more of a week in the life-lots of iPhone photos and pieces of our daily life-notes from work & school, that type of thing. I got my core kit in the mail and I couldn't wait to start playing with it. This is the base for my title page-still lots of work to do (add photos, etc) but I love the colors of this kit!!!

Also wanted to share a quick two page layout I did of our trip to the Mid America balloon festival this summer. We've gone to the balloon festival the past 3 years and love it-it's such a fun way to spend a summer evening.

The rich primary colors in the balloons led me to pull out the Simple Stories chevron patterned paper and yellow cardstock. You probably can't tell from the photo but each letter in my layout title is pop-dotted, so that it has a little dimension. I just love this event!
Are you tackling project life in 2013? If so, link up in the comments-I'd love to follow along on your journey-I'll be sharing mine throughout the year next year!

you are my sunshine {a scrapbook layout}

Wow. This has been the busiest December ever for us. It seems like we have something scheduled for every single night of the week and our weekends are packed too. {at least my Holiday mini won't be boring this year!}
Just wanted to pop in here and share a quick layout-my posts might be a little short the next couple of weeks but I'll try to pop in a least once or twice a week to share.
Today's layout is a fun one! I captured this silly photo of the twins horsing around at a festival that we went to this summer. It looked like they were almost hugging or holding onto each other because they cared about each other; when in fact, they were wrestling over a frisbe. I couldn't help having some fun with it. :)
Happy Tuesday!

you can never have too much happy {a scrapbook layout}

Happy Monday! I have to say, I had a great weekend-I got a lot of creative projects done-and my 2013 Project Life kit arrived. I was pretty excited to get it out and start getting some ideas of how I wanted to organize myself next year.
I'm also working on my Holiday mini-2 days down! {Post-it notes adhered & photos taken!}
Feeling good about where I am at creatively.

Our family recently started watching a show called Duck Dynasty-which I highly recommend. It's very funny and clean for the family-something that's hard to find these days. One of the main characters on the show often says "Happy. Happy. Happy." We've started saying it too. I was in a happy mood this weekend and my layouts this week reflect it! :)
This one is capturing my baby, Moose {aka Brody}, doing a dance he does ALL the TIME, called the crab dance. So glad I got this recorded. I know he'll stop doing this someday-but it's so stinking cute.

Happy Happy Happy!
