back into the swing

Why is itΒ  always hard to get back into the usual routine after a week of having fun!? I’ve been slowly getting back into the swing of things even though it’s been pretty tough. Although it’s been hard, I had the chance to work on some layouts.

TAAFOMFT posted a new challenge. This time you’re asked to scrap about your favorite outfit! I don’t have a particular outfit that means a lot to me, so I scrapped about how I love Audrey Hepburn’s classic look.

For this layout, I used some of the papers from Studio Calico. For the stitching, I played with one of the fun tapes from Kiki Art; doesn’t it look pretty good for not being real?! Seriously, it doesn’t rub off, and it doesn’t tear! You should ask your local scrapbook store to pick some up; it’s seriously worth it.

I also finished a layout I created for my local scrapbook store, Memories Live On, to display. This one was loaded with Jenni Bowlin goodies.

…and I never shared some of the projects I finished for the Kiki Art booth at CHA. I got a chance to play with Kiki Art‘s latest line, Hot AIR Balloon. Isn’t it adorable?! I love the fun and bright colors to this line! The characters are super cute too! πŸ™‚

Last but not least, Hilo wanted to ask everyone a question.

"Mommy thinks I need a haircut. What do you think?!"

Hope the weekend has been treating you well.

    Angus is in the same boat as Hilo…desperately needing a haircut AND bath. With almost a foot of snow on the ground I just cannot bare to do though.

  8. All of your LO’s are TOOOO CUTE! But, of course, I am partial to anything involving FASION, so my FAV is your FAV OUTFIT LO! Just adorable & you’re right… that stitching looks very real!
