02/16/14 - "Connecting"

Good Sunday Evening to you...well it may not be Sunday evening by the time you read this but it is as I write this.
One more day left to my 4-day weekend and then back to work ::BIG SIGH::
Have a fun day planned tomorrow: David, me, and the kids are joining some friends and their kids to shoot rockets at the park.
Our kids are old, 12 & 18, and David realized we had never done that w/ them before!
Oh well...better late than never!
Today we spent time at the hobby store looking for the best one.
I'm crossing my fingers that the experience will be a successful one.
 After the hobby store shopping spree and some household chores were taken care of,
David settled down to watch basketball and I got some scrappy time in.
I created this layout.
Journaling: "Xmas 2013
David and Madi playing w/ the gift Santa brought our family."
After the hustle and bustle of Christmas died down and it was just the 3 of us at home (Joseph was in Ohio), David and Madi decided to play w/ the "Connect Four" game Santa gave our family.
We had "Connect Four" a long time ago and it disappeared.
Right before Christmas I was talking about how I wish we still had it and David and the kids agreed and I guess Santa heard us because it was under our tree on Christmas morning.
I used a couple of papers from my "Well Played" 6x6 paper pad by Carta Bella.
It's "game" themed and also looked great w/ the Christmas paper.
Love how it ties the 2 themes together!
 I also used the following sketch from Stuck?! to help me out:
I had absolutely no plans to scrap today so I am happy that I was able to do so and to have a layout that makes me smile!
Now if only I could say the same about the mess in my scraproom...yikes!
I guess I know what I will be doing w/ the rest of my day tomorrow!


  1. This is great! Both the story and the layout, and how you used the papers to tie in the themes. AWESOME job, love this one! :)

  2. I loveeeeeeeeee this! LOVING the layers and the colors!!! And I need to clean my scrap area too ... it is driving me batty lately! LOL!!!!

  3. I used my free time on Saturday (while Steve and Trevor were at Cub Scouts) to do a massive scraproom cleaning. It makes such a difference in how quickly and easily I can scrap. Great LO!

  4. Great way to capture memories! Love the use of the big bunting/ banner pieces (not sure what they are called :D)
