I am Back but will be Leaving:):)

 The grandkids arrive from phoenix in about 6 hours! The house is ready, the fridge filled with their favorite foods and goodie bags are all set. For the next month I will e busy! They will be in Michigan for a week including 4 days at our cottage up north. Then I am flying back with them to babysit until school starts mid July. I will not be back home until July 21. 

I did manage to get two layouts done yesterday. Both used the current sketch from Sketch N Scrap.

I chose to document Lauren's and Reilly's haircuts in February. I saved hair from both of them and used clear keepsake envelopes to include that on the layouts. Lauren went with a much shorter style. Reilly lets them spike his hair but then wants it combed down:)

 Thank you for stopping by!

Time Flies!

 I have no excuse except.....................when we are with the grandkids for the winter, I do not have as much time to create and/or share:) I would not trade those days for anything though. 

We are back home now for a while. Last week I managed to complete quite a few layouts. Every couple of months Walgreens offers a coupon for a free 8 x 10. I have been collecting them and started scrapping those first, 

It makes the process quick and easy! 

For those of you who are still following me, thank you! I appreciate it.

Growing in Unity Day 5

 You made it to Friday and Day 5 of my Growing in Unity projects. This is one of my favorites. 

The Unity Deco Foil Toner Card Fronts make card making fun! These can be used with any laminator to create instant shine.  

Here is a close up of the shine!

I added twine bows, a sentiment stamp and snow. I love how this turned out.
