Weekend Review

It was another beautiful weekend here in western PA, and it was fun-filled one as well! Started out with a great scrappy day with the ladies on Saturday. We had the option to make some cards, but I had my things I needed to work on! So here are the pics from what I did this weekend.

The first here is a LO of my daughter Delaney from back in August. We took her and Jaedon to the beach here in Treasure Lake while Layton was on vacation at Virgina Beach with Cory's parent. All I did was cut an 11" circle out with my "inch worm" scissors and inked around the edges of circle with my pink stampede stamper. I also used some pattern punch out letters from an alphabet stack and inked around the edges of those as well to set them off from the green ribbon. Added some flowers and the pics, and I did journal all around the outside of the circle.

This next picture here is some items I did for my October Pal Swap on SAS forum. My October Pal wanted fall items so this is what I made her. The first is a scarecrow I designed. I just drew the pieces on the back of the papers I wanted to use from the DCWV fall stack and cut him out. I used some craft straw to make his hair arms, and legs. Also used the same straw for the cornstalk in the second item. I used my orange stampede stamper and quickly wiped it along the edges of the cornstalk to add some color to it. The last item is poem in a frame I made out of photo mat board with just some fall paper out of the DCWV fall stack and I inked around the edges with my brown stampede stamper and added a bow. And Janelle, if you see my blog before you get your package, hope you like what your getting! Oh one more thing, for those who check out my blog and are fellow SAS followers don't tell Janelle what she is getting in case she doesn't see this!!! LOL!!

The last item here is a board book that I am working on for a wedding gift. The book is 6 inches high and 24 inches long. God, love Bree from SAS who has been ever so helpful with this project that I am attempting ( you should check out her blog with her tutorial on how to make). the book is far from finished yet and I still have to decorate the inside of all the pages, but this is what I have done so far. I am hoping to finish this on Wednesday night when I go to my monthly crop!

And finally last, but not least to the weekend, was Layton's soccer game in Bellefonte. I town up until 4 years ago we called home! We did drive by the old house for memory sake and I hate it! He put burgundy siding on the nice cedar wood that used to be there! And, I wanted to go and "plant-nap" my hydrangea bushes that I nurtured from the tiny little single plants that they were ( they are huge now)! Enough about the house, the game was great and Layton played some awesome defense . Here he is right before he took this ball to the chest causing him to drop to the ground. Boy, did my heart stop for that minute! It knocked the wind right out of him. As soon as they took him off the field I ran over to see if he was OK , and he was sobbing. This kid never cries when he gets a bump or bruise. He said he was scared because he couldn't breathe. I asked him if he was OK, then told him to lift up his shirt, and WAM--what an imprint was left on his chest! I tried to make him laugh by telling him to hold still while I go get the camera to take a picture for the scrapbook, and I just got a "MOMMMM...". So, nope no pic for the scrapbook, but I have this pic right before it happened to remind us!!
