creating is good!

So I had in mind to be outside more this weekend, but yesterday's pouring rain allowed me time to do some creating and today has been kind of touch and go - sun then clouds, mixed in with a few sprinkles, but a nice breezy day. I have been sitting out off and on today reading The Shack. Been wanting to read it, but not a big reader. I've been sucked in though and look forward to reading more.

I did more layouts with my May Crazy Daisy Kit Co. goodies and believe it or not, I still have tons more to work with! I'm amazed at how far these kits have gone! I even utilized some of my March kit into some of these LO's. Check out the Crazy Daisy blog for some great inspiration from the new design team members. Trace is being highlighted so go check her out and leave her some love on her blog.

I am so loving all the bright colors in the May kit. I think I pretty much used them all on this layout with pictures from Alex's birthday/New Year's Eve. =)
(that awesome blue Swiss dot gathered ribbon is from the March kit! I love that stuff!)
The next two layouts utilize one piece of scalloped cardstock. I took my metal ruler and ripped the scallops off leaving a center square of just less than 8 inches. I like the nice smooth torn edges it left. I mounted the square onto a piece of black cardstock to use for a layout in my 8x8 album. I love finding ways to stretch my papers out to more than one layout!

this is another one for Molly's album, someday I'll give them up Brandi! ;)I took a piece of shaped chipboard from my March Crazy Daisy kit and spraypainted with red to give me a background for this little layout that also utilizes some little scraps from the other papers in my May kit. Just cut out some little thumbnails of summery images added some of the letter stickers (with the bottoms cut off) and voila!
I may have to do one of these for each season.
Love the Creative Type challenges and decided to give this one a go!
The numbers game.
I have been such a Hambly hoarder, I just thought it was too pretty to be hiding in my paper stash any longer!
Decided to pick some random numbers from my life right now and put this together.
Yes, that is 1485 Twitter updates....I am addicted!
Follow me if ya wanna.

So, I have to return to work tomorrow. UGH!
But it's okay, I am feeling good about some projects that I am finally getting done. YAY!
We have a cookout over at Cody & Amy's this evening.
It's been a good long weekend - doing a variety of things I love. Could have used a little more sun on my transparent legs though! (remember my to-do list?)

Happy Memorial Day and be sure to remember those who have given their lives so that we can live, speak and worship freely.
