Mystery Envelope Layout and an Update!


Well hello my long lost blog readers! I know it's been a while and I can't even say it's because I've been busy scrapping. My mojo just got up and left for a bit, but I managed to get it back together today to work on my layout for Sisterhood of Scrap. We were sent a "mystery envelope" and asked to use at least one of everything which I have done (unless one of the kids hid something and I missed it!) and it was a fun layout to do. Something a little more girly than I usually do for sure, but fun!

Supplies: Cardstock is Bazzill. Patterned paper and matching photo turn are Daisy Bucket. Flowers are Prima and Bazzill. Big brad is Queen and Co. as well as a misc small brad. "Cherish" metal tag is Making Memories. Rub-ons are Creative Imaginations Creative Cafe. Misc ribbon. Dollar store coloured staples. Date was stamped with the Making Memories Magnetic stamp set.


Other than that, it's been a pretty good week. The weather has cooperated and we've managed to get out to the park a couple of days. We went and walked up to the store today for something a little different. We were going to go to the park on the way back, but we had a flat on the stroller! We came home and played outside in the backyard instead.

George and I actually went out last night! Just the 2 of us!! We had tickets to a comedy show that was being done as a fundraiser for Kyle's preschool. We now have a babysitter (university student) and she's great! Kyle loves her and even Nathan only cried for about 5 minutes after we left apparently. We had a good time and plan on doing that more regularly now that we have a sitter. Even better is that her sister also babysits!!

Guess that's about it for us for now. I'll try and do a better job of blogging in the next bit here, but time somehow seems to get away on me sometimes! I want to take some more pictures as well, so we'll see if I can get some of them posted too!

Cheers,
Colleen

Love the layout, it is beautiful!

The mystery envelope sounds like it could be alot of fun. Can't wait to see what you have next.

I'm glad that you and George got to have a great relaxing evening by yourselves. You need that once in awhile. I hope you get to do that more often. Date night is great.

Have a wonderful weekend.
