So Lucky

Hi All! Sorry I have been absent from the blogging world for the last week. The kiddos and I took a short road trip to St. Louis for our Spring Break. I had promised them a long time ago that we would be going on this trip, and then things got really tight for awhile, so we had to put it off. So with a lot sacrificing and penny pinching, we were able to take the trip this year. Were they ever excited too!  They were packed before I could say a thing, and even offered to pack my bags for me. :) So we are back from a short vacation, feeling relaxed and rejuvenated!  Right!!
Of course while the boys were busy playing in the pool, (after long days of visiting BORING historical sites on the trip), I got to catch up on the stack of scrap booking mags that have been collecting dust on my desk. I book marked a few sketches for inspiration, came home to the laundry room, (also known as Downstairs Designs) and was eager to get to scrapping. Here is the first page I completed -

This picture of my boys is one of my faves from when they were small. I have it framed, but not scrapped. I used some Concord Crush and Ice Cream Parlor DSP from this past Sale-a-bration. I didn't think that the pinks were something to worry about for a boy page, considering the pattern is really a geometric, and that they are giving me some daisies from the yard. :) So Sweet and Sincere! I really am Lucky aren't I. Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek. Details are below -
