Storybook and a Winner

Hey everyone! Looks like we made it to Friday! Do you have any special plans? Most weekends are pretty much the same around our house...I work a lot of them and my husband and son do their thing together. This weekend, however, Christopher is going to camp! It's the first time Camp Royall is doing some weekend events. So tonight our little guy gets to go swimming, take part in a pizza party and and sit around an evening campfire! Sounds pretty cool huh? Even more cool is that my husband and I get some together time too! And dinner out for the next couple evenings! So we're all pretty excited around here!

Before I take off for a little fun I want to leave you with a new hybrid scrapbook page I created using a super cute kit called 'Storybook' from a new designer at Two Peas in a Bucket, Polka Dot Pixels.


You probably noticed straight away that the photo is not very good, but there's a funny story behind that. Christopher was not exactly chipper on back-to-school morning and didn't want his picture taken. My quick thinking husband said he would take a picture of his backpack instead. And what a stroke of luck that Christopher just so happened to be in the background! ;) We got our photo after all! Not a very good one, but it comes along with a memorable story of how things really are sometimes!


I love the accents in this 'Storybook' kit! Look at that adorable silhouette! And the picture of the vintage children! You should see all the coordinating patterned papers too. A very cool kit indeed!


At first I told myself that I wasn't going to add stitching, that it takes too long and that I have plenty else to do, but it's so hard not to! I love the way stitching looks! Are you one of those who can't call a project done without at least a little stitching? My title is a Silhouette die cut and those adorable little phrase stickers are from October Afternoon's Report Card line.


Congratulations are in order for the lucky winner of my 'Happy Howl-loween' digital stamp set! Woot woot! Stephanie from Handmade Creations by Stephanie won the set! I'll need to get your e-mail address so I can send your stamps to you. Hope you enjoy making some fun Halloween projects Stephanie!

Lastly, I want to leave you with a photo of my beloved little beast Latte. I just couldn't live without my furry little friend and his brother Java. I love to walk into a room and see their adorable little faces! It's the little things that are so precious!


Say goodbye to the ladies Latte! Meow! ;) Kathy
