Big Sister and a Card

It's already Wednesday again and I'm just now posting for WOW Wednesday last week! So glad the time has been changed to two weeks! I LOVE spring and I've been enjoying being outdoors the last several days.

Been doing a little riding.
Taking pictures of wildflowers
Close up of Firewheels. For more Texas Wildflowers you can see my blog here.

With all my outdoor activity I have still managed to create a little. After all it does get dark and I have to come inside sometime! Here is my entry for WOW Wednesday at Cat's Creations

A two-page layout of "Big Sister" with her little brother. Kashton is not quite one day old. After he was born Kennedy came home with us to spend the night. The next morning she could not wait to go back to the hospital to see her Mommy and little brother. These pictures of her holding and being so tender with him are just precious! That afternoon coming home from feed my horse Kennedy fell asleep. It's hard work to be a big sister!

For this layout I used more papers from the Moxie Collection "Wee Ones". I also used the embellishments. The letters for the title were some I had. They were foam from American Crafts that I colored with my Copic Markers to match the layout. I used foam tape to give dimension to the flourish, circle embellie and one that says "Hushabye Baby".
Closer look at the left side of the layout. You can click on the picture for a better view.
Closer look at the right side of the layout.
I also managed to get a card made for Remi. This image reminds me so much of Kennedy. I actually have a picture of her mother holding a cat this way!
This is a Mo Manning digital image. I wasn't really happy with the color I chose for the cat but oh well. I didn't want to print and color another one.I did this a week ago and failed to write down what I used. I cut out the image so show more of the background paper. The sentiment is stamp...not sure who's!

It's NSD (National Scrapbook Day) Retreat Weekend  at Mitchell Resort & RV Park hosted by Cat's Creations Scrapbook Store. I will be working at the store with Ray so the other lady who works at the store can attend this retreat. I will however get to go out Saturday after the store closes to do a M&T (Make and Take) and will stay over to play! I'm excited about that. I have done a layout. Here is a sneak peak!

Ok, maybe one more!

There are sixty women signed up! That's a LOT of M&T's!

The theme this year is Flamingo Funnies! I managed to run across this shirt at Walmart that I bought to wear when I work at the store.
I may have to wear a long sleeve shirt underneath it as there is a cold front coming early Thursday morning bringing unseasonably cold air and possibly record breaking temperatures! This is what Kennedy and I think of that....
Have a good one!
