Been a while . . .

And it's still hot! Tomorrow, tomorrow we get the new air conditioning and heating unit. :) Hanging in there until then.
Something cool though is Cocoa Daisy's June kit Cubicle. A seriously fun kit! I went crazy, had to have all the add-ons which I've never, ever done before. Actually I didn't get them all, but close. I would absolutely recommend picking up some corkboard to use with the kit, it's just kind of a fun look and you can stamp on it, mist it, punch it, use it as a background, etc. I'm really into it at the moment. :)
This page has hidden journaling under the pull tab and a huge pocket for me to put some memorabilia. I've even saved clothing tags from J's baby clothes and I needed some place to store them.
Little dude is all about that bike. Its a kettler car. I so love that Girls Paperie banner paper, and I'm not a super duper banner person. But I thought it went well with the theme of racing.
A father's day layout with dh and J. My whole world begins and ends with these two. :)
I think this is my favorite page, it was the most fun. I do judge them by how fun they are to create. It might be a great page, pretty and all that, but if it was hard for me to make it, I won't like it. This one was fun. I love, love those Pink paislee alphas. You get the black/white in the main kit and one of the add-ons (that I didn't get) has the white/cream ones. Very hoard-worthy. I had some from little davis long ago and used them all. Definitely loving these. The background is the Basic Grey basics edge stickers, I used the whole sheet as is. Everything on this one is from the main kit.
I just loved those pink paislee journaling pads, what a cool idea! I want to use them all, might be a new goal. :) Not sure which add-on this is in. I kind of mixed everything up at this point.
A last minute edition to my gallery, I'm missing the beach (which is home to me) so badly. I hope we visit again soon.
Lastly, this is the 7 Gypsies journal that comes in the main kit. Some Studio Calico rub-ons complete the look. I'm using it in my purse to hold small pieces of paper--receipts, phone numbers, important information (I guess it's important if it's in my purse, maybe not?), business cards, etc. I just felt like the number rub-ons gave it that functionality. If you decide to do one, don't punch the corner rounder on these edges, too big. Adhere the paper and then exacto knife it to fit. Trust me. :)
Dh spent today remembering the men from his military unit who were killed/injured. So thankful for dh, for his life, for his service. He is called to a higher purpose and through that so am I. This military life isn't easy, it's one day at a time, one obstacle and triumph at a time. But it's made me the person I am today, and us the couple we are today. And I'm grateful, thankful and always hopeful. Happy memorial day, until tomorrow.

Thank you and your DH for the sacrifices you make!

As for the Cocoa Daisy kit, I am loving what I see, the pairing of some G45 and Girls Paperie :) Got them all, so might as well mix them together to use :)

What beautiful pages. I love the new BG basic, and actually bought some the other day..a first in a loooooong long time. I thought of you and T. yesterday and was thinking about how I would love to visit Arlington on Memorial Day.
Enjoy the week, and hugs all around!

Wow, you've been busy! I know what you mean about loving the layout that was the most fun to create. Is that Basic Grey basics paper on the one layout? I love it. I just picked up some the other day, 'cause ya know, you can never have enough paper! ;)
