We had my MIL's birthday today. Alexa and Ava spent over 5 hours running around the backyard with their cousins. I think she spent a little energy, don't you?

John couldn't resist taking this picture in the car. Guess those shoulder belt harness slots are perfect armrests too.

I also squeaked in a layout or two this weekend. This one was for a shaped paper challenge over at the Apron Strings blog. I traced a piece of Pink Paislee Amber Road paper on to some bazzill cardstock. Most supplies from the Apron Strings August Bigger than a Breadbox kit.

A bonus was to use some stitching in honor of sewing month. I sewed (machine) some simple lines at the top.

The pictures aren't very good, the lighting is poor in the basement. I hope to have a few other layouts up tomorrow.
