Family portrait

Hi everybody. Not much going on here. How about you? Today, I have a fun grid layout to share with you. This layout truly was easy to make. Just cut out three patterned papers to 3"x3" and print and crop a photo to 3"x3" and adhere it to the layout as shown. Adhere your stickers and transparencies. And then use a pen to draw photo corners at the top left and bottom right side of the layout. Include your journaling and you are set! I used a mini stapler to staple the little triangles at the bottom of the layout as well as the transparency houses.

Supplies: Cardstock: American Crafts, Patterned paper: Transparencies: Die cuts: Stickers: Basic Grey, "Moments" printable: Clique Kits, Mini stapler: Tim Holtz, Pen: Signo, Ribbon: May Arts.

October Clique Kits blog hop

Happy hump day everyone. Welcome to the Masquerade Ball Clique Kits blog hop! You should be arriving from Aliza's blog! And if you're lost, please start at the Clique Kits blog. Here's a fun layout that I created using the exclusive printables from the Masquerade Ball kit. LOVE these! They are so easy to use. Just print them on smooth, white cardstock and cut them out using scissors and you've got yourself some fun die cuts. Don't they look like regular die cuts? You can hardly tell the difference from the store bought die cuts to the printables. And the thing I like the most about the printables is that you can never run out of the printables. They are available on your computer for whenever you have a need for them again.
I also used the exclusive digital cuts this month too. This cut went perfectly with the theme of my layout wouldn't you say?
And here's my final layout.
Supplies: Patterned paper: Stickers: Flair stickers: Basic Grey, Digital cut: Printables: Clique Kits.
Thanks so much for stopping by today. Your next stop is Stephanie's blog. Enjoy!

2014 Light the Night walk

Last night marked my fourth year that I've been  participating in the Light the Night walk to help find a cure for cancer. I enjoy this event so much and it makes me feel knowing that I've made a difference for many people's lives. The NASA FCU team raised over 26K. This is amazing! If you've never been in Washington, D.C. for this event, it's absolutely beautiful. Thousands of people walk with their lanterns held high to show their support and to honor those loved ones that they lost from cancer.

We all walked 2 1/2 miles around the Capital. It was so beautiful... this picture just doesn't even come close to showing the beauty...

Papa John's Farm

Today Aunt Jamie and I went with Edward and his school on a field trip. We had so much fun at Papa John's. Edward said, "It was the best day ever"! So cute. I was worried that the fieldtrip would be canceled due to the rain, but the rain held off and we got to go! Yay.

The men were out there working this morning, picking potatoes.

I love the fall! The pumpkins looked so pretty in the field.

And this was neat. Cotton! I forget that cotton is actually grown...

Be still my heart.

Of course Edward freaked when he saw the Ninja turtle pumpkins. They were very cool!

Me and my little man. LOVE THIS!

They had baby goats and cows. They were so cute.

oh, and they had frozen pumpkins!

The mums were beautiful. I wanted to get some, but I don't know where I'd put them in my yard.

What a great morning we had at the farm!
