Here are the June club layouts. These use the new Tinkerin paper, which is something I totally love. Sorry about the late and short post!

There are 2 kinds of boys......

This one is pretty simple. Leo+dirt=fun. (that's a good title for a later layout!). He really doesn't care what he's doing, as long as he can get dirty.

I do all my own stunts!

Here's another one of my A Page 4 All Seasons club kit. I love these pages! And since the one I signed up for is geared toward little boys, I always have pictures for them. Leo loves to take his bike and start at the top of the yard, start pedaling, lift his feet and crash into the fence. For some reason he thinks this is great fun.

My parents and "grandpa" (he's not really my grandpa but since mine died when I was in 5th grade, I really didn't have one so my sisters and I adopted our good family friend Bob and call him grandpa). Anyway, the day before Mother's Day and 2 days before Aaron's 2nd birthday my parents came up from San Diego, grandpa Bob came down from Valyermo and we came down from Tehachapi to meet for lunch. After lunch we took the boys down the street to the park so they could play. (they were amazingly good at the restaurant and deserved a reward) It was a wonderful day and I'm glad we all got together.

Big Shoes

Here's another one that I finally got around to scrapbooking, only 2 years later! Not much to say about this one except Aaron just grew out of those jammies. My how the time flys!

Big Pretender

Leo got some Lightning McQueen slippers from his friend Bryce for Christmas. He kept pretending to slip and slide all over the floor when he put them on. What a goofball my oldest kid is! (He's signing "pretend" in the top middle picture. Not only is he a goof, he's super smart!

This is just a quick one of our "new" (2 years now) Christmas Eve tradition. We get to open one present, a new pair of jammies, and then we all watch A Charlie Brown Christmas.

Poppy Hunt

Leo and I went on a poppy hunt in the backyard. It was the beginning of the season so there weren't very many. He's even signing flower in the top right picture. This is another Inspired Blueprint (#12) layout.

you & me (Inspired Blueprint #13)

This is me and my friend Mary. Mary is one of my best girlfriends and the godmother of my boys. She was also Maid of Honor at my wedding. She came up for the weekend recently and we were just hanging out on the couch, no makeup, hair not done, just having a great time visiting. I snapped this picture and thought it was a pretty good one. I'm hoping she's not going to be reading my blog for a while because it's a gift for her.

A closeup of the bling. Mary is all about the bling.

Mojo Monday #86

I was feeling crafty recently but my mother in law was here all week so I didn't get much done. Isn't that always the way it happens? When you feel crafty, no time and when you've actually got a little, the (and I hate to say it) mojo's gone. ;)

Here's just a little something that I made recently. It's a card based on the Mojo Monday sketch #86. I actually made it the day after the sketch came out AND took the picture but never got around to posting it. Oh well, it's just for fun. This simple card uses the CTMH Daydream paper pack and the new Treetops stamp set. I just love these funky little trees. The middle one is on popdots but the sideways picture I took didn't come out all that great so you're just going to have to trust me. I do have more scrapbook pages to post and will try and get some soon.
