My Happiness: E&A

Just a sweet little layout of my E&A outside enjoying the sunshine & warmth a couple weeks ago.

I misted my standard American Craft's white cardstock with Studio Calico's Mister Huey's Piglet, Orchard and Lemonade. I punched out a heart and a couple of clouds then misted right over them. This pin inspired me while I was wasting some time on Pinterest.
I used bits and pieces from previous Studio Calico kits, some embellishments from Elle's Studio, October Afternoon and washi tape.

Onto my next project!

My two loves...E&A. Anyway, finally got myself a DSLR! Just a Canon T2i for starters. Still learning the basics and have downloaded myself the ebook "Canon T2i for Dummies" onto my iphone. LOL. I'm soooo excited! Spent the day at the park with the kiddies and my mom enjoying this absolutely GORGEOUS, warm sunny day late September. And it's going to be even warmer (high 20s celcius) the rest of the week. I'm so glad i'm off till the weekend to enjoy it!

1st Day of School: Mini Book

Just a quick post of a little quick project I did the other day. I documented Ethan's first day of nursery school in this cute 4x4 mini book using paper from Studio Calico's Paper Moon kit. I also misted some of the cardstock with Mister Huey's White, Bluegrass and Orchard. I quickly cropped all pictures I wanted to use into 2.5x2.5 squares on Photoshop.
Embellishments used by Elle's Studio, Jenni Bowlin bingo card, Crate Paper Toy Box phrase stickers, Basic Grey chipboard alphas, and AC Thickers. Thanks for looking! =D

It's September! Whaaat?!

I can't believe it's the second week of September already! And summer officially was over on Monday. The hot & sunny weather ended on Sunday and by Monday, fall weather was apparent.
 My sweet, 4-year old Ethan has officially begun school. Last Friday, we (Arianna & I) walked him to school for his one hour trial class. I teared a bit on the way home. I was also worried that he'd misbehave or cry. BUT HE DIDN'T! He quite enjoyed it.
Today, Tommy and his Papa walked him to school. I don't think Tommy can believe his little son is in school either. But, he's proud. Ethan survived his first full afternoon. Whew. And he told us about all his songs he learned and "ate chocolate pudding and drank milk" in class. I think he just enjoys the treat part of the day. 

In other news, our sweet Arianna is WALKING! From last Monday where she was just taking short steps forward to full out WALKING on the sidewalk and grass with no difficulty. Wow. But she is getting into everything! Crazy girl! And our sweet princess turns 13 months today! Yay!
That's it for now (since it's almost 2am).
