1. We woke up to snow Monday morning, but today is gorgeous -- sunny and hot!
I even wore sandals to work today. :)
Our weekend plans: to work in our yard & soak up the sun.
2. I had the day off on Wednesday, so I decided to switch up some of my décor for summer.
My friend gave me this sign for Christmas -- I love it!I placed it outside my front door and it totally makes me smile every time I see it.
I took down my Christmas cards in our hallway and decided to
display some summery layouts.
A few summery items on our computer armoire...
... and I changed up a few things on our piano,
including a new verse on the chalkboard.
3. Last night, Austin, Jonah, Sage & I drove to Winnipeg to see
our favourite comedian: Matt Falk.
He was filming a live show at the Garrick theatre downtown and, since tickets
were only five dollars, we had to go.
It was rush seating, so I dropped the boys off at the door and told them
to grab some seats while Sage & I parked the card.
Well, they did well -- front row seats!
A quick picture before the show started.
Matt is so funny!
And it's so nice that his material is clean and appropriate for the whole family.
We had a great time!
4. As I've mentioned before, I'm taking Kelly Purkey's Sketchbook class at Studio Calico.
This week, I made a layout using Sketch 4:
I found this sketch more challenging, but I'm happy with what I created.
I decided to showcase some photos of Sage & my "girls weekend" last month.
I stamped my title using PTI's Wet Paint Alphabet.
I used some Crate Paper patterned paper on my layout,
and a Crate Paper chipboard embellishment.
I stamped and diecut these SSS Flowers On My Mind from some
Bazzill Basics CS White cardstock and used the same cardstock for the base of my layout.
Here's a close up of my journaling.
5. And, as has become my habit, I also made a card using the sketch.
I decided that instead of paper-piecing the background in a grid like
I did on my layout, I would just create the grid with my score-pal.
I did a little smooshing on my background with a mango gelato onto
a piece of Bazzill Basics CS White Cardstock before adhering my flowers over top.
The sentiment is from PTI's Graceful Greetings.
I matted my card on a piece of Bazzill Basics Blossom cardstock.
Thanks for looking!
