Some Thrift Shop & Brook

Feeling a bit under the weather but wanted to post a couple of layouts I did lat weekend. Used the delicious Brook Collection from Crate Paper for this one:
This layout is about the amazing weekend we had a few weeks ago - Olivia did her First Communion and Brendan's hockey team won the championship. Definately a fun time!
This layout is about my girl on her special day. I used October Afternoon's Thrift Shop. Seriously amazing paper. I'm in love with that line!

I'm off to veg and watch American Idol. It's almost Friday............. :)

I Think I'm in Love....

....with this piece of paper:

From October Afternoon's "Fly a Kite" Collection - called "Ice Cream". Well, I'm definately willing to scream for it. It might not be healthy but.....what can I say. This piece of gorgeous, colourful paper excites me. Coming to a scrappy layout near you very shortly. :)

Life is busy, hence my lack of posting lately. It's busy time at work, kids are in their activities, etc and I haven't been scrapping much. Going to take some time tonight and really get into a page. Perfect way to de-stress.

Besides the usual kid stuff, we had a pretty exciting weekend around here last weekend. Olivia did her First Communion. She looked beautiful, she was wonderful and we are so proud of her. Pictures to come soon. On the same morning, Brendan and his amazing hockey team won the championship final and took first place in their division. It was beyond amazing. These boys were middle of the pack all year - like in 10th or 12th place. They played their hearts out all playoff long and rewarded with being the champions! The score of the final game was 1-0. I think the parents were more stressed than the kids! The best part - Bman got a breakaway and hit the post but his defence partner picked up the rebound and popped it in! His first goal of the season. The defencemen don't score a lot of goals in this age bracket so it was super cool to see Brendan and Craig get that goal. I love how proud the whole team was of themselves and it was so well deserved. They'll get a banner to hang in their home arena and were awarded medals. Pictures of that to come soon too. :)

Off to find some photos to go with that delicious piece of paper goodness.......

Thanks for the visit.
