New Layouts...and other stuff...

Whew...sorry for the long break between posts, it has been crazy busy here as it always is towards the end of the school year. We have had several projects going on at once and therefore the blog had to take a back seat for a while. Thankfully, that is all past now and we are looking forward to the fun and diversion that Summer vacation will bring! We may start a little bit early with a beach trip on Monday--or we might just hang out around the house and do nothing but relax--either way it will be a nice change from the break neck pace we seemed to have had around here lately!

Anyhow, here are a couple of layouts I did for this month. The first one here is my favorite and I've been holding on to the title/kite concept for just the right photo and papers. I felt the Basic Grey Max and Whiskers line was just what this idea needed and this is the result:

The tail on the kite is made from some very old Waxy Flax, pinned down with bits of Pink Paisley tape--twisted in the middle to look like they are tied on.

On this one I knew I wanted to get down some journaling about Spencer's lack of Speech development so I saved lots of space for my text amongst these adorable papers by Pink Paisley. And I have to say--I love these photos of my sweet little guy:

And that is it for today, but I have some cards and an additional layout to post soon!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. I'm so happy to see you post again, Ginger! What have you guys been up to? Wonderful pages, of course, but I really like the first one and love that you are scrapping about what Spencer's going through these days. A trip to the beach sounds like fun.

  2. So glad to see you posting and to see some more wonderful layouts. Both are super cute but I must say, the first one with the kites is my favorite. I so need to scraplift that one, title and all, it is simply adorable! I love your creative style!!

  3. These are all sorts of WOW! Great designs! :)
