Some craftiness and a "OMGosh, I'm 'that' Mom" moment.

I have been cranking out some layouts of late.  I've toyed with the idea of submitting to the Lily Bee DT call.  I haven't hit sent yet on the email.  Guess I better decide soon, since the deadline is 3/1. 

For this layout I used a 12x12 piece of chipboard for the background.  I sprayed it with Glimmer Mist and distressed the edges.  All paper is Lily Bee, flowers and center are Prima, Thickers for the title, 2 Girlz Etsy label.  I just LOVE ths photo of Ava.

More French Couture paper here.  I punched the background and the lightly glued it to the background paper.  Then I stitched the seams. 

I would put a detailed close up picture in, but Blogger and I are apparently not on the same page.  A couple other favorites.

So, I was going to post this layout as well.  But, again, Blogger and I are not seeing eye to eye.  *sigh*  It is one of my favorite photo's ever.

Ok, so "that Mom" moment.  Ever watch an event with kids, and one is running around bouncing off the walls, not listening to a word the coach or teacher says?  Do you feel embarrased watching or giggle a bit?  At the mom or child?  Do you ever think, "boy, am I glad that's not my kid!"  Well, that was MY kid on Friday night at swim lessons.  Ava, who I thought was well behaved, we rarely have issues at daycare, could not control herself at her first swim lesson.  Being our first lesson (ever) I didn't know if I was supposed to go in there and intervene or stay out of it.  But, I was mortified.  Throwing pool noodles in the water, not listening to the instructors.  Oi.  We had a nice long talk afterwards and she will be apologizing to the instructor next Friday.  Cross your fingers for a better second lesson.  (By the way, Alexa, in a different class, did fine.)

Alright, I'll be back real quick with an ASD March Sneak peek. The kits are available for pre-order and you can see them on the ASD web site.  I'm working with the "Smaller" kit and have finished all of my pages.  :)  I just need to finish journaling on one page.  Tomorrow or Tuesday the slideshow should show a sneak of a few pages from the design team.
