Busy Little Beaver




I've been mia lately. Just working on layouts and hanging out with the family. Longing for more Spring weather as I watch the snowflakes fall from the dim grey sky. I love being outside in the fresh air. Fresh air would do our whole little family a lot of good right now.

We have a bird's nest in our bedroom window. It is the most wonderful experience to wake up to thier little chirping and fluttering. Sarah tries to look for the "bawdies" but they are well hidden behind the air conditioner. We can only imagine how adorable they are. We end up coloring cute pictures of birds and making tweeting sounds while we listen to them :)

I finally did this RAW layout that I've been wanting to do before my 30th birthday. I took some self portraits with...gasp....no makeup...and no photoshop touchups....double gasp. I wanted to document what I looked like "in the raw" while I was still in my twenties. It took some bravery to complete it but I am happy to have it in my album now. Hopefully, I'll look back on it when I am older and be grateful that I captured the way I looked during the majority of my days as a young mom.

The rest of these layouts were just for me and just for fun. I used the awesome Poppy Ink kit and was inspired by the ad challenge at 2peas for the piano layout. It felt so refreshing to scrap for ME :)
