Life. Wow.

My life has been insane for a few weeks. After a month in the hospital, my beloved Papa James passed away. He was a wonderful man and the center of our family and it was very difficult to lose him. He means the world to me and will forever remain in my happiest memories. Between that and Thanksgiving/Black Friday craziness, I have not had any time to just relax and scrap. I am greatly enjoying my long weekend off of school and already counting down the days til Christmas break! 17...

I have two cute layouts of my niece to share today. I have gotten into the bad habit of starting layouts by doing the background papers and putting down the pictures, then I stop and work on a different one. I have several that need finished and I just might get to them some day soon!

First, I have a funny "had-to-be-there" moment of my silly niece. She was 'drawing' her face on the coloring book pages. Basically she was trying to trace her nose, ears, eyes, mouth and face on the page and it was soooooo funny!
The title is a quote that she said she was drawing. Hilarious!

I used some Stickles to accent the title and the crayons, which we cut from Makin' the Grade.
I also have one more from when she first got her new trampoline. I used paper from the DCWV Playtime stack. I love how the kraft paper looks with the prints.
I only used Birthday Cakes for the font. I didn't make any other cuts because I just couldn't think of what I might embellish with. I am a person that has to use something that directly relates to the photos and nothing I had worked so I did nothing! I have already used the trampoline cut on another layout so I didn't want to use it again so soon. I still really like how it turned out. Kira is just soooo sooo cute!
Last day off tomorrow...I am going to watch lotsa football, do some layouts and make some pizza.
