The Paper Variety and A of G #17

Happy Wednesday to you!  We have a new challenge up at The Paper Variety, and it's a sketch from a very talented guest.  You'll have to pop on over there for all the fabulous details, but here is my layout:

I know, can you believe it?  Two double-page layouts in one week?  Craziness!  These photos are of my oldest, Colten, who just loves to climb the tree in my parents' front yard.  He will get up as high as he can and start singing - he loves to sing - and it is just too funny.

I used almost all Jillibean Soup products.  Isn't that bird paper great?  I loved the dark charcoal and lime green combo.  I used buttons from my stash and I made the button trees' trunks with scraps from the sheet of corrugated alphas.  The corrugated buttons were left over from my November Scrapbook Circle kit (love those - need more!).  By the way, you could win one of those kits on their Facebook Page today!

Those fabulous journaling spaces are from {embellish*ology}.  I'm  a sucker for kraft :).

Today I'm grateful for technology.  I'm not a tech-nerd or even tech savvy, and I admit it all intimidates me at first, but I do appreciate what I have available to me.  I'm grateful that online we have this amazing ability to reach out to people we would never otherwise meet, to share ideas and experiences, to have incredible access to information.  Even though glitches can give us big headaches, I'm grateful for all I can accomplish when things are working well.  And I'm hoping that by expressing this gratitude, technology will feel loved and want to work for me right now - 'cuz he isn't very well at the moment :).  Have a great day, everyone!
