Around Here

It has been so long since I've posted an An Around Here post...months.  I can't actually believe it.  There has been a lot going on here.  I have figured out my iPhoto libraries so that is actually a really good thing.  I'm also working on my photography stuff and building a new website...I'm reworking everything and I'm happy about that.  So here are a few photos to show you what's been going on "around here"

Camping Pics

 Most Epic fishing trip EVER
 Homemade lip balm

 The best dad.  He's the best at everything.
 Combing Jojo's crazy hair...he has two cowlicks.  

 Cooking on the Big Green Egg...This was delicious.

Maddie's Birthday...I made this cake.  It was super yummy and easy.

 He's painting again.

And this....he's official now.  My brother is a certified attorney.  He's so incredibly smart and we are so proud of him.  Unfortunately we could not make his swearing in ceremony because of PARCC testing. Nonetheless, we are extremely proud of him.  

So, I hope you have all been doing okay.  Hopefully once the school year is over, I can post more frequently.

Clique Kits Pep Rally

Hello everyone!  You should have arrived from Leigh Ann's blog.  I'm the last stop on the list today, and I hope you have enjoyed the trip.  I have a layout to share with you today... but first I must explain.  It almost didn't happen because of this puppy.  She's going through a horrendous chewing stage that has resulted in the loss of many, many items...including my shoes, sunglasses, etc.

Sure she looks innocent in this photo but don't let it deceive you.  I came home to this...

The plastic up at the top is the part of the bag the kit was in.  And apparently she ate this because it's missing.  I may find it in the yard in a week or two.

Anyhow, the word of the day when I made the layout was "distress."  Much of the papers had been chewed, as well as the embellishments.  So I made sure to distress the stuff that wasn't already distressed by Laylah, ha.  

I really love this kit.  The colors and papers are amazing!!!  I can't wait to use some of them in my project life.  I used the die-cuts to create the title.  Though, I'm pretty sure my son wasn't happy that day while sitting in time out (far right).  I was because it shows his dog waiting for him to get up.  That made me happy.  She laid there for about 8 minutes with him.  I just chose some every day moments I've photographed to put into the layout (tons more are on instagram).  I wanted black and white photos to pop against the yellow background.  

And just a close up of the distressing.  The title distressing totally brought to you by Laylah's teeth.  

Well I've wrapped up the Clique Kits Pep Rally today.  I know you have seen some AMAZING projects.  Just incase you need the list, here it is.
