Fabulous Weekend...

We had a great weekend around here! Sunday was my birthday and we went out Saturday to celebrate. We made a trip to Raleigh and did some shopping up in the Triangle Mall area. I got to go to Panopolie and Archivers to purchase my own birthday presents and we had lunch out at Macaroni Grill. It was a lot of fun. It's the first time that we have gone up to Raleigh for a day out since Kat was born and I wasn't sure how she would do, but she did great. We finished off the day by seeing Ratatouille at the base theater. It was a great birthday Day!

To make the weekend even better, I actually got some scrapping/crafting done! Yippeee!

I thought it was time that I did a bit of scrapbooking about Jacob. I have been concentrating on those fun girl layouts with Kat lately, but with his monumental move into Jr. High this year, I needed to document this time for him too!

The journaling says, "You are 2 weeks away from starting 7th grade-Jr. High!?! How in the world did you get so old? I get panicky just thinking about it- so much about your life is about to change & I know that you can handle it. I just hope that I can. I love you! ~Mom"
Supplies used:
*Junkitz Laguna
*Daisy D's rub-ons
*Stamped in Ink custom stamp
*Rhonna Farrer buttons
*Bazzill cardstock
*Scenic Route die-cut arrows

Of course, this doesn't mean that I discontinued the girly layouts of Kat over the weekend. Some of my fun birthday goodies were some of these gorgeous new pink/black Anna Griffin papers which were just perfect for these photos. I used the journaling straight off of my July 3, 2007 post.

I have a couple of personal goals this week/month for my creative life and I will be back to share about them and a new product challenge either later today or tomorrow. I hope that you are doing something creative today!
