For each ecstatic instant. . .
I haven't scrapped in over a week and I have some very needy craft supplies calling my name. There will definitely be some time set aside this weekend to jump into that pile of crafty goodness.
I made the layout above about our first trip to the Corn Maze at Queens Farm. It was hilarious watching Sarah run around the maze, collecting pieces of our map, and generally having a great time getting lost. It took us over a half an hour to get out, and that was with cheating. There are some great mazes about an hour from here that seem really challenging. I think we may have to go for those next year. Although you do get a little freaked out when you realize you've been going in circles and have no clue how the heck to get out. And that's also about the time you realize you shouldn't have had that last cup of apple cider :P
The other image shows the super simple, super fast invites I made for my daughter's fifth birthday party. I used Helen Dardik's awesome birthday line with Creative Imaginations and whipped up something cute that Sarah could help me make. We covered the envelopes with the balloon pattern and then did some layering on the invite with coordinating cardstock and stickers. Of course, I was very tempted to stick on some pop dots and ink, but I refrained. It was hard. But I did it. She needs to give them out to her friends before I rip them open and glitter them up :D
