Shine On

I haven't had a lot of scrappy time since sweet Princess Aubree was born, but a few weeks ago I managed to create two layouts that I forgot to share. 

here is one of Ashlyn (the girl is THRIVING!). I used a school-themed collection on this. I have been hoarding it. lol

cs: Hobby Lobby
pp, vellum and stickers: Websters Pages
enamel dots: MME
doily: Crutsey Boutique
paper tape: Simple Stories

This layout is Ashlyn, myself and my husband. I have few layouts with me in them and I am making it a point to try to scrap myself more. :)

die cuts: Pink Paislee
sequins: Hazel & Ruby

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you are enjoying your summer. Ours is just about over. I have decided to make things a lot easier on myself and am going to use an online curriculum for Ashlyn's core subjects this school year, We are going to begin a modified schedule next week so we can both learn the program so when she officially begins on August 17th we will have an idea of what to expect and have a little of the learning curve mastered. I imagine that it will take us several weeks to find a groove, but we'll get there. 

She will get a break in between our "learning curve" week and actual starting week. She has been accepted to attend Camp Oasis (a special camp for kids with IBD- Crohn's or Ulcerative Colitis). She has been too ill to attend the past several years. so she is super excited to be able to go this year. I am thrilled for her, but I am going to miss her. It will be the longest I have ever been away from my baby, but she will be in excellent hands with a medical staff 24/7. She will have the opportunity to be with other kids her age who suffer from IBD as well, which is going to be an amazing experience for her. I am sure I will miss her more than she will miss me. lol
