Enjoying our weekend.

My parents are in town for Memorial Day weekend. They arrived Friday and we have been on the go ever since. Yesterday was opening day for Connor's baseball team. Grandpa was the third base coach for the day and here he is giving Connor some base running advice! Our team did win the game but our boys need to practice their fielding big time if they want to continue to win. Grandma took the boys shopping and Connor, being a total lego maniac, picked out the new Indiana Jones legos. He came home and put it together immediately, with some help from his brother. Zachary is not into toys as much as he used to be so he just took the cash and will spend it on something of his own choosing at a later date. That's what I would have done too! Today, my parents are taking them to see the new Indy movie and they can't wait!
Just wanted to share a few layouts I made recently. Stacey, the owner of All Moments Remembered sent me some Pink Paislee to work with and I absolutely love this paper! What I like even more is the die cut sheets! You can do so many things with them! I also used Pink Paislee's alphabet stamps on this first layout thanks to Nicole! I am not a huge stamper but I have to say that they were so easy to work with and produce a clean, crisp image every time! Not to mention the font is delicious.

I also made this little project using Jenni Bowlin chipboard butterflies, Pink Paislee and some American Crafts chipboard. All these items can be found in the AMR store. I got the metal garden fence at the Dollar Store. I am not a project person, but I like how this turned out. The picture is not the best as it is much cuter in person.
I hope you enjoy the rest of your long weekend. The weather had been excellent so far but they say rain is on tap for tomorrow. It figures.

Jenn, if my son sees those legos I will have to get them. He is a lego maniac okay. Geez. The layouts are cute and how original and fun is your project. :) Hope you are enjoying the holiday.
