one sunny april weekend.

The weather has been pretty fantabulous this month. Thus far, the rain hasn’t been dominating our blue sunny skies. Well, with the exception of today and apparently the rest of this week. This past Saturday everyone was out and about, and lots of fun people came to drop into Our Paper Place. I had tons of fun doing make and takes with all of you, especially with the little ones that dropped in to make their mini albums.

For all you local bay area peeps, Our Paper Place will have another make and take soon, so stay tuned for the information on that!

On Sunday, we headed up to the city. It’s been a while since we spent the day gallivanting aimlessly. …so I suggested that we check out the murals out in the Mission. I’ve heard so much about them, but I never had the chance to see them in person. Here are some fun pictures of the murals:

…and because the weather was so nice, we spent time in our patio. Maui and Hilo enjoyed getting to play with their toys. I love that they always pose for my camera, haha!

They’re such hams, and that’s no joke! Hilo especially loves taking pictures. πŸ˜‰ That makes the both of us, haha!

Last but not least, I wanted to share some projects that I created this past Friday.

Tammy, my newest crafty friend, brought some supplies to work on cards for the troops. She told me that Cards 4 Troops was looking for Father’s Day cards to donate, so here are a couple simple ones that I created:

We all know that I’m not much of a cardmaker, but I tried my very best. Hopefully the person who receives it will like it.

My good friend, Lindsay, sent me some cute photos of her and hubby. With me being the scrapbooker that I am, there was no way I was going to pass up a layout! This one is using the Timeless collection from Bo Bunny. It’s not typically the style I would use on a layout, but I actually like the way this layout came out.

…so what do you think?! It’s totally not a “Sarah-kind-of layout”, but I love the elements in this one. If you want to replicate it or see it in person, head into the store! I’d be more than happy to help you recreate it. πŸ˜‰

Okay, that’s my post for today. Now, it’s time for Scrabble and movie night!
