Along with the great products I have received for she glossy
I have also started getting kits from Studio Calico.
This week I combined products from both these sites.
 
I am currently on week 15.
For us that was Spring Break.
We had no big plans but hanging around the house
and enjoying the great weather.
I was in the middle of battling chronic headaches and
still figuring out my new "normal"
Getting out for me always ended in a really bad
headache that landed me back in bed.
Sometimes I just didn't care and knew I had to
enjoy the sun and get the kids out.
I am forever grateful to the amazing grandparents
my kiddos have who love spending time with them too.
 

My husband was also wonderful and helped out a ton when he got home from work
with dinner or taking my son for a bike ride to get ice cream.
Jordan also spring training for baseball put on by our high schools boys
baseball team. I was also in the middle of participating in #myselfiescrapbook
so I included a pic of me in the layout too. I don't get in much since I am always
taking the pics of everyone. My daughter took that one for me.


 
My sisters and I took all the kiddos to the river for a picnic lunch and play.
At the end of the week my mom took Michelle for manicures and lunch.
Josh's parents took Jordan for the weekend.
He got to stay for the first time on his own.
They said he was a totally different without his sister there.
When he is with you one on one he is so laid back and loves
having lazy time to just snuggle up with you. He had a great time
with his grampa watching movies, taking their dog Lou for walks
and going to the driving range.

Mother's day Weekend | Arlington Color Vibe 5k

I had a super wonderful Mother's day weekend!
I love this weekend because
1. it is all about me
2. I get a little spoiled
3. I can say what we do or where we go

We started of the weekend Saturday by
driving down to Arlington to participate
in the color vibe 5k!
We all had a blast and it was so much fun.
I highly recommend to any family of all ages!
We will definitely be another one next year!






When I registered us online I bought extra packs and I am so glad I did.
The kids loved covering each other, us and themselves while
waiting for the race to begin. Along the race there we also color
stations with volunteers to get you as you ran through.






 


 











The race was a little bit more difficult then I was used too.
Lynden is pretty flat run.
This had plenty of hills and even stairs.
Jordan was an absolute trooper and did his best
to run as much as he could. We did a ton of encouraging.
If a station was up a head we would have run to get there
and then through it. He also finished super strong along side Josh.
It was really happy for my heart to see.
Michelle ended up running ahead of us and we met her at the finish line.
About half way through our run we ran past Josh's boss who was
outside his office watching all the racers. We paused long enough to say hi
and he got a pic of us.


At the end the dj was playing music and all the participates who were
gathered together by the stage and had a few huge color throws.
Everyone got handfuls of color and all at once threw them into the air.
We were coated by the end.







Before we got in the car we brushed ourselves off
and changed. We headed home to BBQ lunch.
We were all pretty tired so some of us took afternoon naps.
 
Part 2 of our day at the beach will be posted soon!

This week I worked on my second layout using products from she glossy!
It has been a lot of fun so far being on the design team!
I love using different pieces to put together some of my own
cards so I didn't a little of that again this week.
 

 
I am still in catch up mode on 2015.
This week I worked on week 14.
It was a pretty busy week.
My nephew's birthday, Jordan had a spring concert
at school, baseball season is in full swing,
and the weather is really been amazing.
 
 
For my week 14 card I loved using the stickers from Anything Goes stickers.
Are tradition in our family is the birthday kid gets a sundae at Edaleen Dairy.
This is the best ice cream and they have a store just minutes from our house.
They have 75 cent kid cones so we are there a lot lol.
 
 
Also included in my products this week were these
arrows stickers by Mambi sticks. I absolutely love them and
may have used almost all of them.

Project Life layout | she glossy design team

Today I am sharing my first layout using the she glossy product I received.
As I mentioned on Monday in my Project Life Monday Linkup post I am one of the she glossy Scrapbook Design Team Members. Going through the product to mix and match what I wanted to use
was a lot of fun. I think this layout of Easter Weekend came out great!
What works best for our family so the holidays aren't t crazy is we switch off every
other holiday! This year we spent Easter Sunday with my husbands family.
I didn't want to miss out on our yearly Easter egg hunt with all the cousins
from my side so we did a little picnic and Easter egg hunt on Saturday!
Made for a fun weekend.
 
 
I love bringing items from different sets together and putting my own touch on cards.
I did just that with all the cards I used except one. With the products I received I
so many fun word stickers to chose from. I really love adding words to help
tell the story on my layouts.
 
 
 
How cute are my two nephews?!
Love them to pieces.
 
 
This may be my favorite card I pieced together from the layout.
 
 
Check out she glossy!
