Planner Stamping: April 11-17, 2016

{I'm backdating my posts to the weeks they should of been posted. 5/24/16}  Brent was off work this week, so I took the week off too.  Aside from going up to Seattle for a few days, we were home most of this week.  I didn't craft at all this week and went back to fill all of this the week after.  The OCD in me can't have any blank pages, lol. 

To save time, I just used a sticker kit I got from Two Lil Bees.  Since I did the layout after the fact, I decided I would include a couple of pictures of us as well.  I just printed them on cardstock and trimmed then down to fit the space I had.  Since Boston will be turning 2 in June, I'm planning on putting in daily pictures of him in my planner.  We'll see how it goes, but I think it might inspire me to memory keep a little bit more.

We cleaned our closet and weeded our yard!  One of the days while Boston was at daycare, we went out for a date lunch.  We used one of our gift cards that we still had from a Year of Dates.  Later that day, we took Boston to his future high school's baseball game.  Of course West Linn's school colors are yellow and green (same as University of Oregon), but it's alright...I still love my Beavers!  Have a great day everyone!

Planner Stamping: April 4-10, 2016 Work Layout

{I'm backdating my posts to the weeks they should of been posted. 5/24/16}  While at CHA, I got to meet Tiffany (VillabeauTIFFul) and Kanani (Studio l2e).  Tiffany had just released new 'sparkle' stickers and I had to have them, lol!!  I ordered them from our hotel room at CHA, lol.  Though I've had them since January, I already knew I wouldn't use them until my birthday week. 

Melissa (The Creative Bee Shop) also made an exclusive clip to match this sticker set.  You all know how matchy, matchy I am, so of course I just had to have it too!  While buying this clip, I couldn't resist the beaver!!  (Well, you know, since I did graduate from Oregon State and all.)  I've been meaning to order another one with an orange bow so I'll have it for Civil War this year.

The week before, I was up in Seattle.  My department did give me a hilarious birthday card (with a cat named Sparkle) and a gift card to Amazon.  I used that gift card to pay for part of my set of distress markers.  I know I'm always super late to trends, but since I only color with Copics, I've been wanting to expand out a little more.  Well, I hope you all have a fabulous day!
