One more day!

Yay, only one more day and I will be scrapping with my mom and good friends all weekend long at the Cozy Crop House! I can't wait! This will be my fourth time going. It's been a really rough week with Edward recovering from having his tonsils and adnoids taken out. He also had to have tubes placed in his ears. Poor guy. I am hoping that he feels much better tomorrow. He is getting sick of me and I don't blame him. Aunt Jamie and momom will be taking good care of him while I'm away. I think I need it... especially since I will be home with him all of next week while he recovers. For those of you who think tonsils are no big deal. I think it's different for all kids and it's not a little surgery. It's a tough surgery for your little ones.

Come on Friday. I've been waiting an entire year for 3/27/15.

Fun with printables

Hi everybody! I have a really fun layout to share with you today. Have you seen the fun print-ables that came with the April Clique kit? OMG, I just love the color pallet. Such a fun combination of die cut patterns, tags and labels. CK_Apr15_Printables (1) I also love the papers and cards by Pinkfresh Studio. So very pretty.

I love printables because they are perfect for when you're running out of embellishments! Simply keep them in one folder and save them for a day when you need them. I print mine on heavy white cardstock and they look great. Why not try using printables on your next layout. It's a great way to save money on your supplies because you can never run out of printables, just be sure to keep a good stock of cardstock and ink.
