A quick and easy layout using my Studio Calico September kit Poet Society.  Ashley and Allison too,  love love love to pick the strawberries and raspberries from the garden.  It is unusual for us even to take a bowl since the girls will eat them right off the plant/bush.  How convenient that I took almost the same picture with both berries!

Shine On

Another quick layout last night before the Survivor Premier (does anyone besides me still watch this?).  I used my Studio Calico September kit Poet Society and scraplifited this awesome layout by Magdalena.

What a sweet photo of Allison and Liam, she loves that little boy and always wanted to help feed him when he was still a baby.

Miner Mike's

I finally broke into my Studio Calico September kit Poet Society this week.  A quick layout, that looks kinda funny because it is on white card stock which is not showing up.  A fun girls only weekend at the lake with the Schmidt girls.  Of course since the weather has turned Ashley keeps asking when are we going back to Miner Mike's.

Another quick layout I put together last night.  I used a super saver layout from Scrapbook Generation. I have two more layouts from that if I have photos to match?

Grandpa's pumpkin patch is in overdrive this year!  We went by this past weekend to check it out and Oh my the pumpkins are huge. I am talking over 20 pounds some even 50 pounds.  I am talking state fair worthy.  They are definitely not carvable.  I guess we will have to paint some jack-o-lantern faces this year.

I actually got away for a short time this last weekend to attend a super saver class at my local scrapbook store Scrapbook Generation.  I did some shopping too which earned me a free page kit....which I used on this lovely layout of Ashley doing some gymnastics.  I love it when a layout is pretty much laid out for you, all you need to do is some cutting and gluing.

Two layouts in one night!!! Well the snow layout had been on my desk for awhile and just needed gluing down.  On both layouts I finished off my Studio Calico August kit Sandlot.  My September kit is here and I'm ready to create with it!  James' 1st Birthday layout was inspired by this layout by Andrea.

Snow in was crazy and it snowed multiple times that day.  It was a very wet snow and didn't stick around but it definitely snowed in May.  The girls had fun playing in it after dinner at the Club.  I think my favorite part of the picture of the cousins is Allison looking at everyone else. For a good year she never looked at the camera.  Allison so wants to be doing what everyone else is doing, so she is always looking and following everyone else.
