**Layouts, Vacation & fun news!**

I wanted to share a couple of layouts I did this week. The first one is for Create My Keepsake. It was my turn for the Monday Muse (<----click that link to check it out and play along!)
My challenge was to use felt in a fun & funky way. I decided to cut several different squares and cut some of the edges. I also used felt for my title and cut some of the Queen swirly border up and laid it on the squares. Here's what I came up with:

That's my cute boy - Shaypher on his 16th b-day. I was trying to decide what picture to scrap and I came across this one and immediately that song "Put A Smile On Your Face (make the world a better place)" by Vitamin C came to mind...hence my title :)
And this layout is what I did for
Design X this week. Our challenge is from Amy and is:
"What in your home makes you happy? What do you look at and think really makes your home yours. Create a LO about these thing(s)."
My fave thing is my cross wall in our entry's just so peaceful! :)

You should totally check out the challenge & play along! Link your layout in the comment section to be eligble to win a WAY cook kit from Bad Girls Kits . Can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!! :) If you do play along - link your layout BACK here to MY blog and you could win a FABULOUSLY fun RAK from me! :) I love putting together kits myself and I will put one together for you! :) Remember...just link your layout to ME in my comment section and I'll pick a lucky winner when we get back from our vacation!
Which brings me to what I want to tell you next!

I'm so excited...we're leaving this coming Thursday for our vacation to Tennessee & North Carolina! YAY!! I can't WAIT! We reserved a van today for our trip and we'll be leaving Thursday afternoon for a fun family adventure! :) After our last adventure through the mountains and having to buy a new car (LONG story, LOL!) we decided to rent a van for our trip this time :) I'm so not in the mood to buy another car out of state, HA! We're coming home August 8th. :) I'm going to take my laptop but we might not have internet in some of the places we'll be. I'll try to update with pics as much as I can while we're away...if not I'll share when we get back!


OHHH and now for my fun news. Scrapbook Trends requested a layout for their December issue! It's for their "FRIENDS" section and my layout is one I did for CMK using the July kit. It's a layout about Savannah & her best buddy Abbie :)

That's all for now...hope you have a GREAT week everyone!!
HUGS to you all!
Don't forget to say HI! :)
