Blew the Dust Off ...

It has been a month (well a month tommorow) since I have written or posted antthing on my poor neglected blog. Life has been crazy - we will leave it at that. And today in the quiet of morning I thought to myself I will take today for me to do what I want. So here I am finally posting on my blog.
I wanted to share three layouts that I did using the Apron Strings Smaller than a Breadbox Kit.  
Jam packed with October Afternoon Sarsaparilla, Basic Grey Konnichiwa and Echo Park Take Note the ideas started swirling in my head right away!
The October Afternoon was a must for the trip to the rodeo with Grandma and Grandpa, the Basic Grey was perfect for Disney on Ice (Tangled = Lanterns!), and the Echo Park combined with the October Afternoon was perfect for Fourth of July pictures (Red, White and Blue!).
This first layout is of the trip to the rodeo - I wanted to do several different layouts but when I have so many pictures and too many layouts to do combining pics into one layout is best!
I wanted to do just one layout of Amory and Grandpa in her pig nose and title it "What a Bunch of Hams" I wanted to do another layout of the girls milking the cow and title it "You Squeeze What?". But the title block from Echo Park's Take Note was perfect because these pictures do conjure up a thousand words to describe them!

One Picture is Worth 1000 Words

On to Fourth of July Pictures - I have some more layouts of the Fourth to do but two checked off is two checked off!
This first layout is of my older daughter in the pie eating contest at our church's Fourth of July celebration.
Famous last words after eating a chocolate pie with her face - "I am never eating pie again" although she ate pie an hour later after dinner....hmmm
I used a Keep Calm sign as my inspiration for the title
Keep Calm & Eat Pie ... with your face

And this next one - my older daughter running a tattoo parlour in the church gym. I couldn't be prouder ...
And my younger daughter the first one in line - announcing she wants a tatoo like Mom. Yep I could be prouder ....
Celebrate  One Tattoo for You

Thank you for stopping by and have a blessed day,
