  28. LOVE the picture of Brooke!! And love all the wonderful embellies on your layouts!! You are the queen of mixing embellies, you really are!!!

    Wishing you a wonderful week!!


  29. I also love this crazy blog world we live in.
    I am glad that you link to other blogs...I like to explore places I have never been.
    LOVE Blue Moon!! OMG!!
    Your LOs are fabulous as always!!
    Have a great week!!

  30. OOH you did a layout with the coat picture!!!! I love it. That is a gorgeous layout. GORGEOUS. She is going to love that picture of her when she gets older. :)

  31. Adorable the picture of Brooke. She is tooo cute! HOpe you are having a great Monday...I am still getting caught up from being gone for such a short time. I did get some Nikki stuff while out shopping. Cute! She will be at one of the shops I was at in April. Woot!

  32. loving your mix of papers! The one with Brooke is adorable (she is growing up one layout at a time) she looks mature and peaceful in your l/o. I love the plain chipboard title with the words beauty to sum up the whole picture. And the one with your besties and you is so pretty. I'm loving that you are playing with pattern paper (which I am wimpy with but maybe I will break out of the mold and actually start mixing mine more instead of just using one piece of carstock as my base) Hope you have a great day Julie bean!

  33. Julie! Thanks for your nice comment, always lightening my day :) Life is so busy at the moment, lots & lots of work! I love my work and the guys there are great, but I'm just empty when coming home, just wanting to be with my kids and can hardly stand the sight of my PC ;) Creative? What's that? LOL. But - the minute I open Google Reader,your blog is the first I go to :)

    I LOVE your beauty LO, your daughter is so adorable! And your twist on the sketch is just awsome, those etsy flowers are so cute! Love the Smokey Bear story - being able to preserve those moments of everyday life is the reason why I scrapbook - and this moment in time may seems small from the outside, but I guess she'll remember it all her life - this page is a real treasure! And the bird is awsome!

    Love these manicured hands - it's not the space in your house that counts, it's the space in your heart :)

    O M G - the Lego jungle is .... WOW! Creative souls!!! SO FUN!!! :)))The weeds are the perfect match for those warriors - having the perfect fantacy world by just a little (ahem) rain - Wonderful!!!!!! I can't say I envy the desert heat, I saw the crocuses today, not just green but gaining color! The sun is stronger and stronger every day, and thogh I'm pretty tired of the snow at least the sky is clear and the sun gives quite a bit of warmth from around 10 am to around 4pm.Next week we'll have rain too, and I can't say I look forward to the enormous amount of water we'll have to go/drive through when the rain melts down all the snow... but then - hopefully, we'll have spring ;)

    And Julie.................I can't wait to see the CS guests! :)))))))))

  34. I wanna say THANK YOU so much! you have no idea how much I needed to see that these days. You are the best & I love you my friend. Thanks for making me smile. :)
