Mission: Accomplished Freebie!

My brother returned home from a Mission for our church. We haven't seen him in a long time and wanted to make a poster for him to see as soon as he got off the plane. We came up with this:

I thought it would be neat to share the Mission: Accomplished title I created (inspired by Mission: Impossible) I bet there are lots of creative uses for it.

New Army or GI Joe Themed Birthday Party Pack

(click image to see it in my shop)
I used this set for my son's birthday two years ago and it was a blast! 

This is one of the activities (actually what the kids did most of the time). We made these marshmallow shooters: 
Then staked green helium filled balloons to the ground with tent stakes. The kids enjoyed "target practice". 
The entire party was done on a $50 budget!
Decorations were so easy to find, if you have a boy odds are you have army men, we just set them out on the tables along with toy tanks and jeeps.

Green plates and tablecloths finished out the look.

Check out this Pinterest Board for more game, food and decoration ideas. I used many of these as inspiration for my son's party!

Layout a Week: Week 21 plus Freebie!

I just had to scrap these photos. My 2 year old loves playing in the dirt, our torn up yard is his dream! Not so much his mama's but we are working on it. In the meantime I'm glad someone is loving it.

I am offering the distressed doodled edge I created for this page as a freebie. Just click on it below, then right click and select save image as. Make sure you save it as a .png so it has a transparent background. Enjoy!

A Long Hiatus Layout A Week: Week 17-20

After a much needed vacation and a few weeks spent replacing siding on our home and painting it, life is finally mostly back to normal here. I apologize for the long break!

I have been working on layouts though. I've been creating simple templates and using them to scrap some simple layouts. I don't know about anyone else but I take way, way more photos of my kiddos than I'll probably ever be able to actually scrap, but I still want to present them nicely in my scrapbook. So I thought I would share them and some of the templates for you to use as well.

And a couple free templates for you! 

To download, click on the template, then right click and select save as. Be sure to save it as a .png image so it has a transparent background.

I would love to see your layouts using these templates feel free to share them here or in our forum.

Layout A Week Challenge: Week 16 Free Buttons and Bling!

I am falling behind, so there will probably be two layouts this week to catch up!

I am so, so ready for it to be summer, right now it is only 64 degrees here though (yuck!) Since it's cold I figured I might as well get a summer-ish layout done.

I used a patterned paper from the Water and Sunshine Kit. Which can be found in the shop.

As a freebie today, I am offering the buttons and bling that I made for the layout. To download them, click on the image, then right click and select save image as. Be sure to save it as a .png so it has a transparent background. Enjoy!

Layout A Week: Week 15 Free Sketch!

I was looking at a scrapbook with my 7 year old, and he loved the layouts that told about specific everyday events. Knowing that, I am trying to be better about creating those layouts. So I did one this week. I had to "stage" the pictures, but I love that I was able to capture this small portion of what Kian and I do everyday.

The layout uses items from the:
Fall and Summer Tree kit

Doodled Arrows kit 

Build a Banner set. All found in the shop. 
And now for the freebie! To download the sketch, click on the image. It will bring up a new tab, then right click on the image and select save as and save it to your computer.
