Tis the Season to be jolly! :)

Hi everyone!! :) 

Elle's Studio is hosting a challenge this month to scrap a large photo .... and today I wanted to share my take on it :)

I used Elle's Noel collection on my layout :) 










Also ... I wanted to share some photos from this weekend :)

We took the kids to a pumpkin patch :) 






There was an children's author there and Brookie got her books signed and a photo with the author :) 

 

They had water gun games! :) 
 



A petting zoo :) 
 







A hay maze :) 

 




My monthly photos with my babies in honor of Aleida :)
 
 


A hay ride out to the pumpkin patch :) 

 




Yes!! Adam picked one that big!!! And just to give you an idea of HOW BIG that pumpkin is ... Adam is 6 feet 1 inch tall and weighs about 250 pounds ... (yeah, he is built like a linebacker!! LOL!!) 

 





They also had an area for the kids to ride horses!! :)

 




And then they panned for gold :) 

 




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

  30. Oh, what a beautiful layout, Julie! Love that photo of Brookie! And I adore the use of the large photo with the fact you still have so many adorable little details to look at, too. Loving the little chalkboard card on here! And I sooooo enjoyed all the photos of your family trip to the patch. What a fun place that is! And I must say, I'm so impressed that Adam seems to enjoy the outings as much as Brookie does. At that age, I couldn't get Pete to participate like this! ;)

    Your layout is fabulous. I love the sewing you did around the edges, and the zigzag stitch too. Brooke's image really makes the page! I once woke up to a doll house on Christmas morning...I am sure my face looked something like hers. lol!

  47. It's been strange reading your posts in reverse (getting caught up from my vacation) because I'm seeing the finished projects a few days before all the photos of the actual event!
