Welcome to a day in my life. I can't guarantee that this will be an exciting read for anyone. My life is filled with all the mundane activities of a stay-at-home-mom just trying to raise her three sons to be the best men they can be.

Show and Tell

It's time for a little show and tell, aka posting a couple of layouts.

This first one was done for a colour challenge on the Use your Stuff challenge blog. The challenge was to use brown, blue, green, and orange - not too much of a stretch for me as I love using these colours.
These pictures have been sitting on my desk for well over a year, if not two. I just couldn't find the inspiration to do them. When Joy posted the colour challenge I decided to force myself to get these done, and I have to say, I love the way it turned out. Maybe I should force myself more often.

Have you been over to see the Use Your Stuff blog yet? Do you need some motivation? Then come on over and check out the recent and older challenges and jump right on in. We're also looking for another Challenger, so check it out.

This one hasn't been on my table for quite as long, but still long enough. I did this one for a lacing challenge on the The Scrapping Bug Forums.
The pictures are from our time with family at a cottage a year and a half ago. I wish I could be back there right now!
Have you been to The Scrapping Bug? It's a smaller forum, and great ladies there. It's a lot of fun. Join us!


  1. I love these layouts Barb! They both looks amazing, These will be put in my inspiration book.

  2. Love the phots in the first one, Barb. And look how many photos you have on the second one!! You're a 2-page pro!!

  3. Beautiful LO. Love the colours you chose - they complement the photos so well.
