May 30

We have had such lovely weather on the weekends so the kids have been playing outside a lot. Kirsten finally got herself a hula hoop and so they were all trying it out. For this layout I used a template, paper, stitches and button from a kit called Smells Like Rain. It is a collab kit by Scrap Orchard that can be found in the Daily Digi files #4. The dot swirl is from the kit Summer Afternoon by Kasia Designs from the Daily Digi files #3. The alpha is from the kit Sprung by creashens also in the Daily Digi files #4. And the blue tie is from Weeds and Wildflowers Life 365 kit.

This was one of the pictures that was taken before we went to my older brother's memorial service. I used Osten Wilkin's new kit called Trust. It is perfect for heritage and romantic layouts.

For this layout I used a kit from the Daily Digi files #4 called Over the Rainbow. It wasn't until I started working on this layout that I realized how many different pieces were in the kit! Fun! I used a template from the same Daily Digi files by Kaye Winiecki. The paint swipe is cu by Bunny Cates.

This picture was taken before my older brother's memorial service on Monday. We had a Military service at Willamette National Cemetery in Portland for him. I had never been there before. The grounds and view are incredibly beautiful. I used Osten Wilkins' new kit Cherish which is a club subscriber kit. He is giving out a mini kit as well to forum members. He also has couple of other kits in the same series but different colorways in his shop.

This is our much loved and dearly missed Nocturne. She passed away 1 1/2 years ago unexpectedly during an illness. She was almost 18 years old and had only been ill one other time. I used the Follow Your Bliss kit from Weeds and Wildflowers to do this layout.

I know I used this picture before, but it is such a great one of these 2 that I used it for a desktop challenge at Gotta Pixel. I thought the monkey paper was very appropriate for these two. The kit used is by Jennifer Barrette Designs called Welcome to Paradise. This kit was in her NSD grab bag.

May 18

And here is the 2nd half of week 19. This also uses Weeds and Wildflower's Life 365 kit.

May 17

Here is the first half of week 19. I'm running a little behind this week. My brother's memorial service was yesterday and since it was in Portland we were gone for a couple of days. As always I used Weeds and Wildflowers Life 365 kit. Except for the word art which is from Weeds and Wildflowers Think Spring kit and the green star burst which is from Weeds and Wildflowers Life is Good kit.

This is my future daughter-in-law. At Rachel's wedding she caught the bouquet and we were not surprised! lol She and Philip were pretty serious about each other even then and we knew it was only a matter of time when they became engaged. I used Osten Wilkins' kit Mystical Rapture. The butterflies are also by Osten from his SparkleFlies set. I did this layout for an embellishment challenge at his forum.

Another layout done using Creashen's Sprung kit from the Daily Digi files #4. I love everything in this kit. My tulips are still blooming even though we're a week into May. The weather has been so crazily cold. My Rhodies are just now starting to bloom and they're usually in full bloom by this time.

I'm really loving the new Daily Digi files. The kits are awesome! For this layout I used the Sprung kit by creashens. My apple tree buds finally opened up. Now if we can get some nice weather, we'll have a wonderful crop of apples!

This is a QP by Weeds and Wildflowers. Aren't these two cute? They have been good friends for some time now and are always doing fun things together.

Somehow I missed getting a picture of my oldest. He must have been hiding in the office where all the computers are... or he is the person in the picture of Nathan and Rebecca (Rachel's good friend from the Master's program) are talking to in the kitchen... either way he was hiding. The kit used for this layout is Follow Your Bliss from Weeds and Wildflowers. A couple of these pictures went into my week 17 layout, but I wanted all the pictures of the kids in one layout. The pile of stuff in the one picture is Philip's stuff that he needs for the summer while he is working in Pullman. I was using the room where he'll be living so there wasn't any place to put it.

And here is the 2nd half of week 17. I ended up with more pictures this week just because of going to Pullman. Again I used Weeds and Wildflowers Life 365 for this layout.

I finally had a chance to put my project 365 layout for week 17 together. Here is the first half of the layout. Weeds and Wildflowers have a bunch of new Life 365 sets out. So much fun! lol

This is such a cute kit! It was really fun putting this layout together. These 2 kids of mine are really good buddies... of course they're also close in age (15 months apart). I used the kit Bee Buzz Buzz out of the Digi Files #3. It is by Kitty Designs.
