Then there are the neighbors who always look perfect...you only see them every once in a while but when you do, their hair looks fabulous...their house is immaculate, etc. Murphy's Law is...those are the neighbors that drop by when the dirty laundry was accidentally forgotten by the front door when the phone rang and you ran to go get it.
Lately I have had a few of the perfect neighbors drop by (you know those ones that have such gorgeous works of art always posted on their blogs) and immediately cringe and wonder what is on the post that they commented on. Because let's face it, the LOAD challenge hasn't exactly brought out the best in my art (that may be because I have been throwing some of these layouts together in 30 minutes or less...way late at night!) So today I am trying to make up for that and I actually started today's layout while it was still daylight out and put some time into the design of it.
I love this photo so I really wanted the layout to be fun.

My second layout to share today is my LOAD from yesterday. It is another one of those that I did late at night just trying to get it done. Overall, I like the layout, but it needs more...more of what, I am not sure at this point, but I may be re-visiting this layout sometime this week to see if I can make it more "finished."

In other news, Kat started pulling up on things today and has finally mastered the hands/knees crawl. I have a feeling life is about to get very interesting around here as I try to stay a step ahead of her to keep her out of trouble. LOL!!!
