this week really got away from me. and my blog paid the price for it, unfortunately. but i'm getting back on track, and have things scheduled and planned out. plenty to share, just a matter of making time to share it. for today, i have a layout up on the pebbles blog.
i used the pebbles twitterpated collection for my layout about amanda. i've been missing having amanda around the house lately. she was one of my very first daycare kids, nine years ago. she's one of the girls best friend's. they call her their "sister", and i call her my "third daughter". she's a part of this family, and is welcome here anytime. but as the girls get older, they tend to get busier with different activities. and the last few months, they havn't gotten together as much as they used to. luckily, amanda has made a few stops by this way in the last week or two. been nice to see her again :)
i've been getting a bit back into distressing my papers. i remember years ago, i was addicted to inking the edges of every single piece of paper on a layout. and then i got away from doing it. no idea why. however, i have reaching for my edge scraper more and more these days. you simply run it over the edges of your papers, whether it's cardstock or pattern paper. sometimes, i'll ink the edges as well. or sometimes, i just leave them as is. but i love the extra texture it adds to my layouts.
i'm hoping to get another post on here this weekend. tonight we're headed to the high school football game. it's homecoming, and the band will be in full uniform for the game. i LOVE hearing them play throughout the game. just love it! then saturday, we have three soccer games. starting bright and early at 7:30, and going straight through for about five hours. hopefully, it's not too hot out.
