A Busy Week Ahead...

I had the greatest intentions for the weekend. Clean the house, finish some homework, and spend time with the kids but that didn't happen. We spent Saturday at the zoo in Seattle. Xavier & I had so much fun while Marc stayed back with my family. I was so proud of Xavier for trying some new things at the zoo and I am hopeful that we will be able to go again soon. Sunday was spend relaxing at home, trying to finish homework, and a bit of cleaning. 

I managed to finish one layout this weekend. I am the type the takes forever to finish a page. I tend to get ideas throughout the day and work bit by bit when I get the chance. 


I really enjoy how this one turned out. One day while cleaning my stamps I decided to try out stamping a bunch of them at once. I loved the way it looked and knew I wanted to try it on a layout. I did that a bit on the main part of the page as well as around the border. The speech bubbles are from the top ten smash journaling cards. I just cut out the bubbles and added cute things Xavier said/ says.


Here is a layout I finished sometime last week. It looks pretty simple but again, I really like it. Its an image of painted rocks on Fort Irwin RD. I used my cameo to cut out the army men on the photo and used dimensional adhesive to pop them up. 

Hopefully everyone had a good weekend!
