More exciting scrappy news!

It's been a good week :) On Wednesday I got a request from Canadian Scrapbooker to publish one of my LOs in their fall issue!! I'm so excited. Not sure if you would remember but the LO is titled Farm Boy. The colour scheme is kraft, green, yellow and I used corrugated cardboard on it. If you don't remember, you'll have to wait until fall to see it again :)

I also had my Cherishing You LO accepted into the Basic Grey gallery! Yay!!

Here's a couple of new LOs I've done.

Here's an older one of the boys for my 6x12 brothers album. I made this using the Scrap That! DT kit. The Bazzill In Stitch'z templates were fun to work with. I used them for the 'crazy' and the stitched arrow.

This LO was done for the Paws weekly sketch challenge. Thanks Joanne for the beautiful sketch!! I used Stampin' Up's Rocabilly papers for this one...they are just so fun!! Not sure if you can tell, but the papers are kind of glossy...glossy red cherries and black lines.

As for kid stuff, life is pretty good. Riley had his last official day of preschool left. Now they only have their little concert and ice cream party on Wednesday. Kind of sad...two years flew by so quickly. I can't believe that he is going to kindergarten next year. Kieran will also start preschool in the fall and I think that he can't wait after so long of watching Riley go!

Bridget still isn't walking but she's standing for longer periods on her own and she can bend down and stand up again without holding on to anything. She's so proud of herself for that and of course we always make a big deal out of it. So she does it over and over and over again! So cute. Still no steps though, but it's coming!

Kevin and I are going out of town for a wedding this weekend for two whole nights!! Grammie and Grampie will be looking after the kids. Thanks SO much, mom and dad! I'm really looking forward to the break even though I'm sure I'll miss the kids like crazy. Who knows, maybe I'll even catch up on some sleep! We've been making a big deal about their special weekend with Grammie and Grampie so I think they're pretty excited. They probably won't even notice we're gone, haha! I just hope that Bridget doesn't start walking while we're away. Who knew we'd be at this milestone time while we're gone. She's so close that I wouldn't be surprised. So, mom and dad, even if she does start walking, pretend that the first time that I see it is the first time!!! :)

That's it for today. I have a million things to do before we leave. Have a great long weekend everyone!!
