Hey everyone,

I'm on my 2nd cup of coffee today.  Literally.  My first cup seems to have walked off by itself and I cannot find it anywhere!  Today feels like Monday to me since Nick and I just flew back from Vegas last night.  We had so much hanging out with my friend Stacy and her 5 kids.  I think the highlight for Nick was definitely going to Chuck E Cheese for a couple of hours.  My favorite thing was going to the local scrapbook store and making a Christmas tray with Stacy.  So much fun.

One of the things I made over the weekend was a layout of Nick's school picture from the beginning of last year.  He was growing his hair out at the time.

I bought a W R Memory Keepers Sew Easy tool over the weekend and got to try it on this layout.  I can't sew worth a darn and I have to say I LOVE this tool.  It took a little while to sew all the stitches but it was really easy.

The patterned paper, button, and chipboard is from MME Stella and Rose collection.

I am entering my layout in the following challenges:

Frosted Designs - Sketch challenge
Stamptacular Sunday Challenge - Distressing
K.R.A.F.T. Challenge - Bright Colors
Simon Says Stamps Challenge - Sparkle and bling
ABC Challenge - Anything Goes
One Stitch at a Time Challenge - Anything Goes

Have a great day!
