Absolutely Fearless

 This is a layout of Kieran learning how to ride a two wheeler without training wheels. It was just last summer and he was 6, which is a bit older then the other two boys, but Kieran is just a little guy so it took him a while longer to be big enough (: As you can tell from the pictures, he was pretty excited!!!

 I used Graphically Speaking for the title, Bo-bunny double dot and I think Echo Park paper. The chipboard and cs are CTMH, which I stamped on with a background stamp.

 So with only supply teaching this year, I have had some time to start putting my new scrap space together. It isn't quite finished but as soon as it is I will post some pics, along with some of my old room transformed for Azelyn. I think I did a pretty good job transferring most of the room to a 6x6 space (:
 Have a great weekend everyone!!!!


 (I am a third of the way there with only 3 months left): I did manage to complete about 12 pages this past weekend at Fall Flurry  though!!

Splash Zone

This is layout # 2 from the Footloose WOTG. The pics are from a few summers ago. My Aunt & Uncle came out to my parents' place and took the kids out on the tube. Azelyn was still only a little fart but she was bound and determined she was going too!!! We sent her out when her Daddy wasn't around to see her go (: He's a little overprotective sometimes!! Even our little chicken, Kieran, went out!!
(just looked and realized Azelyn isn't in any of these pics but she was there)

 I love how the letters for the title turned out!!! I stamped them in the lighter colour ink and then used the rock and roll technique to get the darker colour on the outside.

 So Azelyn is now in her new room!! She's still not sure about sleeping by herself (her and the boys have always shared a room)
 After a bit of a battle with the hubby I think I won (: As we were taking everything out of my scrap room he was going to throw out the part of my counter top I wasn't going to have room for in my space downstairs. I asked him if he could put it in his garage (20x24) until I could find somewhere else to use it. He had a bit of a fit about everybody else's junk being in his garage and said it could go in the shed. I was ticked!! and PMSing!!! I'm giving up my one space that is mine!! and I can't put a little piece of counter top in his huge garage!!! So, the next day when I finished clearing out the room I loaded everything into the living room and kitchen and left it there (: I was going out before he got home from work so when he got home he had a nice little surprise (: You want to be a jerk to your PMSing wife, you're going to pay for it (:  You'll never guess where the rest of the cupboards and counter top ended up!!! Instead of one little piece of counter top in his garage he has cupboards, a desk and the rest of the counter top in there.
 My dad came and helped us put the wall up in the basement on Sunday, he also added a few plug ins for me (: Lee had Monday off so he got the drywall up and built my closet for me. We just have to finish sanding the drywall and then I can paint and move in!!!! I am so anxious to get my own space again!!!!
 Have a fabulous weekend everyone!!!! I'm going to see that cutie Dean Brody in concert on Saturday!!!
