I have a couple new projects to share as I've been feeling the scrapping groove again. It comes and goes as a mommy of twins! :) On the first layout, I used mostly Rusty Pickle's Costume Party line. My "At the patch" layout uses an older Scrapbook Circle kit with Pink Paislee, Jenni Bowlin, American Crafts and Making Memories. It feels so good to get into my older stash of kits and product and be using it up!!! For the yellow strip, I cut a 1/2" strip of patterned paper and folded it to create a pleat. I inked up the edges and then stitched it to hold it into place.
And here are a couple new photos of the girls at 6 months. Nora is actually starting to sit up pretty well on her own. Lily is not that far behind. Our big news at our house is that both girls are teething. Miss Lily is especially miserable. We had a pretty bad week last week with fussiness (and not just the little girls). :) Mommy was pretty crabby too by week's end. Glen and I had a much needed date to see New Moon on Saturday afternoon. I LOVED IT! I was in tears multiple times. I felt like the emotion of the book was well captured. I can't wait to go see it again later this week! :)
All for now! :)

It's hard to believe my little girls are now 6 months old! We are having such fun with them as they discover and explore their surroundings. They love to play in their exersaucers. They also love to watch mommy work it the kitchen. They watch me all day long...I just LOVE it! I have my moments of frustration that's for sure, but being a mommy is the best!
The girls were chili peppers for Halloween and took 2nd place in our community's costume contest. We had so much fun dressing them up. I also had to get them "My 1st Halloween" outfits and got some great photos and wear out of them.
I have a few new projects to share. I made the grandparents these footprint canvasses for grandparent's day and they loved them! I used mostly Melissa Frances on one canvas and Pink Paislee on the other canvas. I made several footprints at one time and have yet to make one of these canvasses for their room. The other canvas I made for my little sister's wedding. This project used a lot of October Afternoon, My Little Shoebox and Jenni Bowlin and was mostly from a kit I purchased from A Kiss on the Chic.
I'm REALLY starting to look forward to the holidays with my girls and have big plans for us in the month of December with things I want them to experience. I might decorate for Christmas this weekend in fact.
Well, off to be a mommy! :)
