Baby Girl layout

Hey guys!  I’m officially 37 weeks, and baby girl managed to stay put!  Woo hoo!

Today, I have my very first layout for baby girl #3’s album.  In all my girls’ albums, I usually start off with an ultrasound layout, and I’m continuing the tradition.  For various reasons, I had several ultrasounds during this pregnancy, so I had many pics to choose from!


I just used some supplies that I’ve had in my stash for a while…there’s a bit of Dear Lizzy, some old studio calico, My Mind’s Eye enamel dots, and my favorite Mama Elephant Charmed stamp set.  I also used the Crate Paper Little You Girl supplies that I ordered from Butterfly Reflections Ink a while ago when I found out I was having a girl.

I’m so glad I got a chance to make at least one layout before baby girl gets here!

Thanks for stopping by!

P.S. how cute are those Freshly Picked moccasins?!  I ordered the light gray pair before I found out the gender of the baby when they had their big sale a while back.  I think they’ll be perfect for baby girl though!

Happy Monday!

Flower Girls & Ring Bearers layout, featuring My Mind’s Eye

Hello friends!

My sister-in-law got married over the summer, and my girls got to be her flower girls.  They absolutely love to get dressed up, so they were both over the moon for their fluffy white dresses.

Today, I’m on the My Mind’s Eye blog with a flower girls & ring bearers layout featuring their new Yes, please! collection.  This collection is absolutely perfect for wedding and love themed layouts!


Stop by the MME blog to see more detailed pics and how I created this layout!

Happy Saturday friends!

baby quilt for girl #3

Hey guys!  I just wanted to pop in real quick to share the quilt I made for baby girl #3!

I finally finished it at 35 weeks pregnant!  First, I couldn’t decide on a color scheme, then I couldn’t decide on a quilt pattern…so I decided to keep it simple and chose colors I have been loving lately, and chose simple, classic squares.


I go into more detail on quilts in this blog post if you’re interested, as well as photos of a few other quilts I have made.

Here are a few process photos:


I bought the fabric for my quilt from Hobby Lobby and JoAnn fabrics.

I love making baby quilts, and it’s extra special when I get to make one for my own baby!  I am super happy with how this quilt turned out!

Happy Monday friends!


take 2 layout, featuring Scrapbook Circle

Hey friends!  I know…it’s Monday.  Maybe seeing pictures of my pup will brighten your day.  Today I’m on the Scrapbook Circle blog with an Emma layout using the October The Weekender kit!  We love our little #dorkie!



This layout was for the take 2 challenge, where we create a layout inspired by another team member.  I was so inspired by Jennifer’s layout, I literally scraplifted it!  LOL!  Stop by the blog to see her layout!


Happy Monday y’all!

baby bump #3 Maternity photos

Hey all!  I am officially 35 weeks…time has just flown by!  This pregnancy has by far been the hardest on my body.  I have seen so many different kinds of Doctors and specialists…probably more than I ever will in my lifetime.  Even so, we had been hoping and praying for baby #3 for a few years now, so we feel truly blessed, and I wouldn’t change a thing.

At my most recent appointment, our Dr told us to be prepared as the baby could be here any time between now and 40 weeks.  Without sharing too much info, I’m already showing signs that I’m getting ready for labor & delivery!  I would definitely prefer to cook this baby for a few more weeks, but we are frantically preparing for baby to arrive, just in case.  We made a much needed trip to Target today, and went on a little shopping spree!  (I love Target’s baby registry!  You get a one time use 15% off completion coupon for anything left on your baby registry about 6 weeks before your due date!  You better believe I used that bad boy today!)  I think we picked up all the necessities, although it’s been 6+ years since we’ve had a newborn in the house!

In the meantime, I thought I’d share a few maternity photos.  It was extremely hot out, and the mosquitos were relentless, even though I doused myself in bug spray, but I loved how the images turned out!  Since this will most likely be my last pregnancy, I really wanted to take maternity photos.  I dragged my girls and hubby out at golden hour, as photogs like to say, and handed my big girl camera over.  I adjusted all the camera settings for hubby, gave him a quick camera lesson, and instructed him on which poses I wanted and what I wanted him to see in the view finder.  It was definitely hard being in front of the camera, lol!  “Do I have a double chin?”  “Is the red square (focus point) on my face?”  “Can you see my sweat?”  “Do I look awkward?”  I would have loved to have a few pics with hubby, but at least I got a couple with my girls.

I edited a few of my favorite images, and here they are:


That’s it for me!

Happy Sunday y’all!
