Oh the messes we'll make!

I have to say I really love having a toddler. In a few months Lyla will be 2 and with each day she is more curious and excited about life and the world around her. Which in turn makes me curious and excited as well. Summer has officially come to florida and we are feeling the heat - so on days when we are not outside directly in water we will be doing some of these wonderful messy things! I spent some time scouring different mommy craft blogs and such and found some I really love. Here is a list of my faves:

Also I can't wait to see this movie with Lyla! It was my brother David's favorite book! The preview makes me cry.

50 posts!

I just noticed that this will be my 50th post! I have to say the experience of having a blog since I started a little over a year ago has been quite enjoyable. I like the idea that I can share my experience, hopes & accomplishments with people and also learn from other talented creative people. Also that when I'm an old lady my daughter can read about our life when she was young and see our everyday experiences. Well I did some digital scrapping today - using some sassafras paper I got in the mail - I don't have the heart to cut into it yet, but I wanted to scrap with it. I'm such a sissy!

Music is Magic!

I hate it when you find something new in music that speaks ace in the hole to you and go figure you can't actually buy any of it. Booo!  I had one of those moments this morning.  I turned on my computer (just to check email).  But when I opened Safari my homepage came up and I was immediately drawn to a movie ad "what goes up" I watched it and it looks like it will be a good film, but more then that I really really liked the song in the background  so I google searched a line in the song "this is where the stars fall down" I found a video on youtube which then confirmed that yes I really really like this artist, dotjr!  Went to his myspace listened to the rest he had on there and now I want his music but alas it is no where to be found!  So not fare! Can we vote for other people who aren't on american idol to be signed?  Vote for dotjr!

I found where to buy his music! Yay! Just go here! I love Where the stars fall down & love song for everyone!

Some kind of feeling

Had a fun weekend doing a photo shoot with two of my friends. Kind of randomly just happened. We where downtown friday night and one of my friends said she always wanted to take pictures in front of one of the old churches in a thrift store wedding dress, and I said "well it's supposed to rain tomorrow, let's do it." So we did! Had a blast! Here are just a few of the photo's that I've gotten around to editing with more to come.
Summer is here and I am looking at all the summer cuteness! Really love this from Anthro!

I love Color

This is a two post day cause I want to get all my recent scraps up. I've been playing a lot with bright colors and loving how it looks.

Inspired by what I see

I saw this ad in a magazine last night and I really loved the layout and tried my first attempt of making my own sketch based on it. So I did a loose sketch.
Used In Design to put together all my photo's and print them on one sheet of 8.5x11 photo-paper
Then scraped the page. It was a super easy page to do, because it's mostly comprised of pictures.
What a great way to do sketches and get pages done!
If you need more creative inspiration go check out Elsie's Blog. She did a 24 hour blog party yesterday of creative, crafty, inspiring, artsy stuff.
