What am I Working on + A Layout

Hi everyone,
I can't believe my vacation is almost over.  I have had a really enjoyable time.  I have been able to scrap, read, and just relax.  That is what I needed! 

So here is what I have been working on. I had these pictures on my desk for awhile now.  They were taken at a local farm.  We went there to go on a hay ride (that layout will be posted soon), and they also have all these jungle gyms for the kids to play on.  My boys loved them!  I loved taking their pictures from the windows and doors. 
This is the paper I knew I wanted to use.  It is the basic grey Oliver line.  I thought it went great with the pictures.
I got so excited when I checked my blog updates and here was the new December 28th sketch from Sassy lil' Sketch.  As soon as I saw it I knew I wanted to use it to make this layout.  I knew that I was going to alter it a bit (like I always do) so that I could fit the 4 pictures.
And here is my take:

Having Fun!

I love the little file tabs that came with this line.  I usually make my own but i really loved them. 
This tab was perfect to put the date.  I do have to add that the lighting in the house was terrible when I took these pictures.  The colors of the red circle and the green letters are way off.--sorry!
The journaling block was a basic grey sticker.  Again-usually make my own but when it all coordinates I just had to have it.
At the bottom I added 2 strips of the paper (they were scraps from another layout that I did.  Here is the link the that layout (My Silly Boy + you can see the color of the red and what it is supposed to look like). I also added a border sticker from the line as well.  To finish it off I added the big circle sticker and then added some random sticker stars.
Cardstock:  Bazzill
Everything else:  Basic Grey

Now last week I mentioned that I had received from Santa my 3rd spinner by Tim Holtz.  I had a couple of emails about how I was going to stack them and what it would look like.  Well here it is.  I just love it!  Now each of my inks has its very own tool.  I have them labeled.  I still need to buy about 4 other tools and then I am set!  LOVE IT!  

Well I hope everyone has a fantastic Thursday!  Hubby is home today, and the kids are going to school for the day so hubby and I are going to go out to lunch and have a great day together!  I can't wait.  I will be back tomorrow with another post and new layout.  Thanks for stopping by!

Love your layout, always awesome.
That spinner is perfect, but only 4 more? You know you will be getting more inks and then you will need another tier :)
