scrappy sunday!

So are you all recovering from your crafty hangovers?

I didn't get as much done as I should have yesterday...lots of DT assignments but I managed to squeeze in this fun layout...

Other than the black base, everything {but the silver embellie on the button} came in the June Hip Kit!  Over the summer I discovered Hip 2 B Square...unfortunately just before they closed their brick & mortar shop...booooo hooooooo...but their Kit Club is still going strong!

The photo is compliments of the boy...a close up of he and the girl.  


Both of the kids tower over me...not sayin' much since I'm a petite 4'8" but they will always be my babies...

I know I've said this before, and I'll say it again and again...I love those kids to pieces.  I don't think they know how much I love them, kwim?

I was inspired by the latest Sketchy Thursday:


So did you buy anything yesterday or plan to over the weekend?  Tons of new October releases...

Check out The Craft's Meow:






I'm suppose to be on a buying freeze {hi Sherry!} but how could I resist this:

Paper Smooches

Sweet Mother of Pearl...I had to buy it...totally callin' my name.

  2. Lovely LO and gorgeous kids! Is their father Japanese?...Or are you mixed as well? I can't really see what YOU look like in your profile photo, lol...I was lucky enough to spend a month in Japan this past summer...was SO hot, though! I'm mixed, too, but, despite my first name, the asian in my blood is Chinese, lol..
    I have been BAD this past week! I just placed an order with Flourishes and got Feminine Charm, A Season of Thanks, and A Year in Flowers 1, 2, & 3...going to make some calendars for Christmas gifts! That's just ONE of my recent purchases...SHHHHH....don't tell my man!
