some layouts and a great weekend

What a blessing it has been to spend so much time with family this summer. Friday the whole family packed up for a day at Hollywood beach. Seth was the perfect little water baby, although the salty waves weren't exactly his favorite part. Here is a photo of him months ago at the Loew's.
Some layouts from Paper Niche and you can get this adorable stuff here....awesome line from My Little Yellow Bicycle.

Forgive the terrible photos, I left my camera at my sis's house and didn't leave until 11:30! So tired, could think about anything but getting under covers and forgetting about this movie I watched at their house. I had my hand over my eyes for the whole last hour.

Inspired (finally)

Hubby, my lovely hubby cleaned up the crib! Floors swept, bathroom clean, and clothes folded! This left me with only one thing to do - CRAFT my heart out. Only one problem - scrapper's block! There I sat, baby sleeping, house perfect, peace and quiet and I could not get inspired by anything! I had all that I needed including an awesome kit, and a good two hours. I spread out the papers, I admired the embellishments, and I just sat there. Suddenly, it occured to me that I have not scrapbooked with my favorite background music in a LOOONG time. I geared up the Music Player and doubled clicked - Barbra Streisand. My favorite song began, "What are you doing the rest of your life". As her marvelous voice penetrated my ears, I started pulling papers, tearing, cutting, pasting, inking, and distressing away. Before long, I had finished five layouts! Yes, FIVE! During my son's afternoon nap I completed an altered item and card. I think I could have finished the kit to the very last strip of paper - but decided to quit while I was ahead. Take a peek!
