Garden Party


So I decided I wasn't going to clean anything today or cook dinner or run any errands, lol. Instead I scrapped :D I actually did this layout last night. All these layouts use Minds Eye's new Garden Party papers. I LOVE this picture of Audrey. We had taken her into Kiddie Kandids last week and she was THE PERFECT LITTLE MODEL!!!! I mean literally, her photo session was less than 10 minutes, she held every pose perfectly, and all her shots came out beautifully!! She needs to be a little model, she is just too darn cute! Everyone at the studio loved her and since her aunt works there, even everyone who wasn't there when Audrey had her session knows about her, lol.


Caitie also had a session a few days ago, but hers didn't go so well. We discovered later it was because she's afraid of the sound that the flash makes. So she wouldn't get up on the backdrop after the first couple pictures because she was so scared. We tried and tried and failed :( We did get one of both Cait and Audrey making faces. Cait had made a fishy face and Audrey just puckered up, and we got another super cute photo of Audrey since she LOVES having her photo taken, lol. Luckily we did get a couple good ones of Caitie before she was too hysterical to even get near the stage. Apparently some of the gals wondered why I picked this one to print that day even though there was one of Caitie smiling. This is just a classic Caitie face so I had to have it first ^_~


I adore this page. Caitlyn loves trying to shake trees. It comes from this song from My Friends Tigger and Pooh. The song goes "Shake, shake, shake. Shake the tree. Shake it all around. If we shake, shake the tree, the lemons will fall down." So she will sing this song and try to shake any smaller sized tree even though they don't have lemons, lol. I used a PageMaps book layout for this one.


This is the accompanying page to the layout above. Using the first layout as I guide I just continued the theme to create a matching page with the two photos I had and created a space for journaling since I didn't have room on the left layout page.



These are the adorable pictures that I took for Father's Day. I took a whole bunch of the girls together and separately in their outfits, but my favorites were these sister pictures. It was amazing that both Caitlyn and Audrey posed when I asked them too for the pictures! This is another PageMaps book layout and it almost looks like a direct lift from the sample the colors are so close and I used the same type of papers (stripe and floral).



The matching page also using another separate PageMaps book layout. I just continued the theme with the papers and stitching to get it to match a bit. I have been loving these papers. Out of the 9 pattern sheets that come in the set I only have 2 full sheets left and only 2 other partial sheets that are enough to do layouts with. I always feel so accomplished when I use up stuff ^_~ Anyway that's what I've been up to last night and today. Next up the bella color and sketch challenge for this week! Thanks for stopping by!
