Getting used to the quiet!

I can now say I am used to the quiet at my house three days a week while both of my kiddos are in school. I have been scrappin',cleaning up a bit, and doing the normal things like laundry and what not. I am getting pages done - and that feels good to fill the empty spots in the scrapbooks where only post it notes live right holding places for those picture and that layout.
The first layout I want to share is more Armand Bayou Nature Center pictures. YES I have alot but we love to go and I get so many pics and I can never decide which ones to scrap so I scrap them all! I used a sketch from The Scrappiest and a challenge from Apron Strings to use your oldest fall paper. I used Cosmo Cricket Nutmeg - not terribly old but the oldest for me!

This next layout was put together using all the Graphic 45 scraps I could find for A Walk Down Memory Lane's Graphic 45 Contest and using another sketch from The Scrappiest. You must put together a layout using 60% Graphic 45 - I used every last bit I had so I hope I win so I can restock! This is Amory and Grandma Lake Jackson (named according to where they live although my dad is not Grandpa - he is simply Phil pronounced "feel") playing checkers on the front porch of Cracker Barrell on Priscilla's birthday. I am not sure who won this game but we did know that Amory is a winner for having a Grandma who plays games, does messy crafts and makes and decorates sloppy cookies!

While my house isn't completely quiet - the 2 year old is fairly loud, I am enjoying the lack of activity in the house. Awesome layout - love the woodgrain stuff, perfect for that page.
