I'm Back!

Hey guys,

I'm back!! I've been back since Friday night but had so many preloaded posts (just in case...) that I was waiting until now to add a "live" post. ha
I got busy and did some scrapping yesterday and made this layout. I combined the sketch challenge at Sketches in Thyme with 2 color challenges at Sketches4you. (Christy's and Fia's)
This was fun to make. I love the colors in the papers I used. And I used a new sewing hole punch stencil which was super easy to use and made hand sewing on the layout easy as pie. I used the simplest stencil but I am sure the more complicated ones will be easy too.
I have been trying to make a few layouts to commemorate my husbands 25 year anniversary at his job. Here is my second attempt. He liked it.
This morning my 4 year old has summer school so we got up at 6am (yikes) and my husband and mother in law are both flying away. My mother in law is going home and my husband is off on a business trip. So just me and the 5 little monsters this week! (jk - lol) Wish me luck!!
