Wednesday?

Is it Wednesday all ready? Yesterday was insane, had to take the baby to the doctor's for shots, and we went food shopping.I did back up my gazillion photos on an external hard drive last week, so that when the storms came last night I didn't panic. I laughed. External hard drive $150, piece of mind = priceless.

Without further ado (because I hate ado):
I was sent Halfway Cafe by Cosmo Cricket; Monday night it arrived at my door.
This is my 4th of July layout, I love the non-traditional reds and blues on this. (Abstract art on the heart, or Danielle sick and tired of trying to tie slippery string and just slapped on there. You be the judge.)



And this is a layout I've been meaning to do forever, but couldn't find the right paper. That paper just feels like a comfy quilt to me.



And last is a Summer layout, J being a boy and getting dirty. I cut up the journaling cards and used them in a bunch of ways with the diecuts and rub-ons. I inked the letter (was beige) a burnt sienna and now it reminds me of real wood:



The colors in the halfway cafe are so rich. I love that. If you have a moment, make sure you comment on the Cosmo Cricket blog to win some of their new paper line being released soon.

I'm so happy to have 3 more layouts to add to J's book. I'm planning to buy an album when I reach 100 pages, not long now at all. I'll have more projects tomorrow, until then don't forget the sunscreen (don't even ask).

I so love how your 3 LO's all tie together - they're so beautiful! Love the 'a' monogram - it does look like wood! I need to get an EHD too... they're all backed up online, but still, I freak.
