Well, it's 4:52 am and I'm wide awake, so I thought I'd post my latest layout. It's simple and grid-based (big surprise, I know), and all about the photos! The kids got Toys R Us gift cards for Christmas from various relatives, and since we have plenty enough toys, Gil and I decided to use the credit for a water slide. We set it up for the first time on Mother's Day, and the kids had a blast! Even though the water was freezing, they played for hours. It was such a nice, relaxing day and exactly what I was hoping for. Oh, I dug deep into my stash for the acrylic KI letters. I attached them to my layout using KI's adhesive made for acrylic, but you can still see the glue through the letters. Crap-a-doody!

Has anyone seen the newest issue of Creating Keepsakes (July)? There was an article about how to make flower accents out of tissue paper cut into circles and sprayed with glimmer mist. Well, ya know me, I had to give it a try! I made mine a little differently than the article instructed - I'm not much of a rule-follower that way. I cut my circles into two different sizes - don't even bother to try circle punches, unless you enjoy a big mess - stapled them in the center, balled them up, flattened them out and sprayed them with different colors of glimmer mist. Once they were dry, I attached some Sassafrass pre-sewn buttons to the centers. Cute! I'm sure I'll use these on a layout some time soon. :)

Have a great Sunday!
