Oh another week is almost over! I have been busy at work and I am just tired!! I need a rest. Haven't really looked at our schedule yet to see if we have a busy weekend or not.
On Mother's day after everyone work up from their naps we decided to get on our gym shoes and head out to Cox Arboretum. It is a park that is 15 minutes from our house and it is just a slice of heaven when it comes to nature. The day was a bit cloudy when we left and a bit chilly but when we started out on our hike it became warm. This park has 3 walking nature trails. We took the smaller trail due to the fact that we were getting a late start. Oh my did we have fun. We saw so many different types of spring flowers and animals. Here a couple of pictures. When we were leaving Jack kept saying he wanted to come back ASAP. I think we will since this is the first time he really went crazy for the nature walk.
Now on to my layout-I have to say that I LOVE this layout. The picture is just so adorable of Michael and I love the simplicity of the layout. Now this is just MY OPINION --the trend right now seems to be about putting as many embellishments on a page as we can. The focus is more on the embellishments and not on the pictures. I do have to say that for awhile I was really getting into this craze (well as much as my style allows), but with this layout I went back to the basics and I just love that the attention is on the picture. I made a huge snowflake using my Silhouette and used to distress inks to give it a hint of color. I also added just a couple of clear gems to the ends of the snowflake just to give it a bit of bling.
cardstock-core'dinations, neenah solar white
Ink-Tim Holtz distress ink
tools-Silhouette, EK Success border punch
I hope everyone has a great day today! I will be back tomorrow with a new layout from my upcoming class on Sunday. Thanks for stopping by and I will see you then!
