Setting some time aside... :):):):)

...for some challenges :):):):) I haven't had a lot of chances to participate in challenges lately...so today I set some time aside to do a few that have been calling my name :):):):):)



...the first one I want to share is for 3ndypapir's blog! :):):) The challenge was to use your stash and dig wayyyyy into your stash and use some old embellies :):):):):):)

Here is my take on their challenge :)

My embellies I used on here (the little frame, the ribbon with roses, the heart, the fairy tag) are all ranging from 5 to 7 years old... yep! I am a hoarder :):):):):):) 


My sentiment is from SRM Stickers :)


And the next challenge I did was for GCD Studios :):):) They are having a school themed challenge this month :):):)  I used goodies from GCD Studios that I got from them and BlueMoonScrapbooking.com :):):):):):)

I talk about Adam's first year of High School and how proud I am that he is getting involved :):):) And again the sentiment on this layout is from SRM Stickers :):):)





And this morning Brookie and I went to go see The Lion King (in 3D) and then went to Starbucks :) Awesome Mommy and daughter date time :):):):):):):)


Brookie in her 3D glasses :):):)

Brookie enjoying her Pumpkin frap :) YUM! And no worries.. there is no coffee in it :):):):):)


Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :):):)

  11. Your mommy/daughter date sounds like fun! The pumpkin frap looks really good. I'm not a coffee drinker, so I may have to give this non-coffee drink a try. Thanks for the tip!

  21. Fabulous layouts, Julie! Love, love those old goodies you found for your first layout. Such vintage sweetness. And that layout of Adam is just breathtaking. SO love that design and the colors and every little inch. Sounds like you had a great weekend. I stopped at Starbucks and had my first pumpkin spice latte of the season. So love this time of year. :)

  23. love the LO details!
    And too funny, yesterday I took my daughter to a 3d movie, and she punched the lenses out and is still wearing the glasses so that she looks like Buddy Holly.. then we went to Starbucks and she got a pumpkin latte! But she's a teen now, and drinks decaf. Great minds think alike! :)
