This week there are two videos... to make up for the lack of videos this past month. For both videos, if you want the best quality, hit the "HQ" button in the bottom right hand corner when the video starts.
The first video is "If you're happy and you know it". Sorry it cuts off at the end. We thought we had enough memory on the camera for the whole thing, but apparently we didn't. Otherwise it was a good video, so I decided to share.
The second video is Mr. Mischief, trying to escape the blockade and get into the dining room.
Other stuffs has been going on, but I'll save that for another entry... maybe tomorrow. I'm out.

But enough of my rambling, I can finally post my layout and here it is:
Everything is the Spring Mega Kit from Digital Freebies - Burst of Spring
Made from a sketch from 52sketches52weeks
Also, I wanted to mention a blog I just LOVE and I'm sure some of you have already heard of her, but I'm so behind the times in lots of stuff (I guess that's what happens when you're a mom). It's Kwernerdesign. She is apparently part of the Two Peas In A Bucket staff, but I didn't find that out until I started reading her blog. She has some awesome stuff on there. Almost every Monday and Friday she has a video of how to make a card. I love watching her make them, it's so relaxing... like watching cooking shows. It's made me want to get back into making cards again, but alas I have no room or time, so that will have to wait at least another year or two. The other thing that's on there is (I think it's every week) a color inspiration, where she'll pick out 3 or 4 colors and challenges the readers to make something with those colors, be it a layout or a card or project... whatever. It's really cool, you should check it out. Ok enough gushing...
Nothing is really going on in my life. Joe is enjoying his job. I'm tolerating my job. Elijah is talking up a storm. Yesterday we were playing with bubbles and I swore he said "bubbas". I'm also told he said "gop gop" the other day referring to my dad who is pop-pop. His new favorite things to say are "gaga" for either "I'm hungry" or "food" and "Daaaaaaaaaad(very hard emphasis on the d at the end)" I'm not sure if he'll talk early, but he's well on his way. I talked in complete sentences when I was 2, but I have no idea if it's genetic or not. I guess we'll see. Other than that, I've just been spring cleaning and boxing things up, cause my living room just looked too cluttered. Usually I don't mind, but this was getting out of hand.

This is not the first time I was offered this chance. Actually I have done this every quarter for the past year and a half. This time I am at a loss though. I know what I want to do my layout about and I know how many pictures I want to include... I even know how I want to do my title. My problem is I don't know where to put my pictures on the page. I have looked through the many many sketches I have acquired and even though the sketch magazine Joe bought me last month to no avail. Usually when I see "the" sketch, it pops out at me and says "This is your inspiration". I have had no sketches do this.
The other reason I'm stressing is because we weren't told the theme for the kit or able to download the stuffs until the 8th. Which means I had less than a week to come up with all this stuff AND do the layout... This coming from the person who takes 15 weeks to do one of her own layouts (hence why I'm not on any CTs at the moment).
In conclusion, I would really appreciate any links to sketches that have 2 photos (they can be paper scrapbooking sketches) . TIA.
