Some Layouts

I got some layouts done recently. The first I've done in many months. I have a bunch of kits to use up even though I stopped my Studio Calico sub because I couldn't justify keeping it going since I wasn't using them and money is tight. I do use a lot of stuff from my stash along with what is in the kits.

This one is a recap of my son Carrick's 2nd year of playing football. He had an awesome year, starting on both offense and defense. Such a difference from last year because he hardly got to play. They even made it to the playoffs this year (last year the same team only won one game). So proud of him! I based the LO on one that was featured at 2 Peas called My Little Pirate. I wanted to add in a photo I had taken at each of the games. He's in each of the photos.

This one had been sitting on my desk from July. I hadn't gotten to it since I was working on items for my Etsy shop (I only ended up selling 2 items, so I'm not sure it was even worth the effort :( ). So now I am getting back to scrapping and doing things that make me happy. I've had a rough time of it lately. I'm not sure if it is just me, but things have been not too sunny. Here's to hoping things brighten up. Send me some good thoughts.

Finally, here's the delicious cookies my mom made for the boys. She always made us cookies for all the holidays when I was growing up and they are so good! Today I have to make cookies for the twins' Veteran's Day program they are doing at the PTA meeting tonight. They are so proud that they get to sing patriotic songs and Cade even had his poem selected to be read. Yay!

Tomorrow is election day. I will be glad that I don't have to see any more political ads or get any more phone calls. I plan on voting. Do you?
