Sweet Peach - August Reveal

The August kit for Sweet Peach Crop Shop is just beautiful! I was asked to be the Guest Designer for this month and received the Sweet Featured kit (and the paper add on):


I love the Scribble Scrabble papers and all the different embellishments that come with this kit, especially those gardenias! So pretty!

I knew this kit would be perfect for some pictures I had of Kalen. These were taken last summer eating her first watermelon, precious!

Sweet On You

Oh that lace! Just love it! Of course I had to ruffle it :)

This last one I used Liz’s August sketch!August SketchI just love the layered scallop border! I know I will be doing that more often!


You still have time to enter the sketch challenge! Go to the Sweet Peach blog to submit your layout!

I also made a quick card.

First Day of Pre-K!!

Well Tyler had his first day of Pre-K today! He will be going Monday, Wednesday, and Friday’s for 3 hours in the morning. It helps that school is at a familiar place, church! Here is my little man all ready for school!



I was a little sad getting him all ready to go. Tyler prayed for me last night at dinner and said “Jesus, help mommy to not be sad when I go to school.” So sweet! I think his prayers helped, because I did okay. :) He was such a big boy going into his room. I told him I had to get one picture of him with his teacher, and he didn’t complain one bit!


His teacher is Mrs. Cox and I have heard so many wonderful things about her from many, many people! I know both Tyler and I are going to love her!

So after dropping him off Kalen and I came home and Kalen kept asking me, “Do mommy? Do?” and “Tyler go?” We didn’t know quite what to do with out Tyler around! We did get some cleaning done though and it was much MUCH quieter in the house.

So Tyler’s 1st day went well! He got to be the helper and a line leader! He was SUPER excited about that :) I kept asking him if he learned anything and he said, “Ummm…I don’t know.” Maybe today was just a fun day! :) School wore him out though, he took a 2 hour nap! Hopefully that will happen every afternoon after school! :)

Staying Simple

For the last 2 weeks of Scrap Camp, I kept it simple! Most of the pages I do are pretty simple, and I like to think of it as my style :) So I stayed true to that with these last couple layouts.

I took a “weekend pass” for week #6, since it was right near Mike’s surgery and just after we came back from vacation. So I got right back in for week #7 – Campfire Songs. You had to have horizontal layers, music notes, and photos that give you a warm feeling. I just love these pictures of Kalen and her daddy!


I made it though that round and we are on the last week. Week #8 – Under the Stars. You had to have a dark background, emboss, and use stars. I decided to use a picture of Tyler that I have had in my photo box for a long time! It was just perfect for this challenge though!


Super simple, right? I love it though! I am so surprised that I made it all the way through this challenge! It has been so much fun and I am sad that it will be ending. I’m sure Scrap Friendzy will come up with another great event soon!
