I'm still here ...

... although you might have thought that I disappeared from the looks of my blog lately.  August tends to be our busiest month of the summer.  Lots of birthdays to celebrate (Darian will be 6 on the 24th) which means lots of party planning and preparation.  Combine that with back to school shopping, summer camp, oh and a nasty stomach bug that took me out of commission for 48 hours last week and, well, you get a neglected blog.  ;)

But I'm back and I have a new layout to share with you today.  And it's a ... wait for it ... double pager.  Now if you know me you know I don't really do double page layouts that often but I just felt like giving it a try and truth be told I love the way it turned out.  I used the fabulous Oliver collection from Basic Grey.  If you have boys you NEED this collection.  It's just perfect! 


I have been wanting to scrapbook some pictures from Darian's first season playing t-ball and finally decided to just sit down and do it.  I used my Cricut Expression and the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge to cut the grass for the bottom of my layout - just a little playful element to go with the idea of a baseball field.


I'm obsessed with Basic Grey's Micro Mono Stickers and Mini Mono Stickers.  Seriously.  Obsessed.  They are perfect for longer titles or titles in smaller spaces.  I also love the Pieces embellishments and it is one of the first things I put in my cart when I'm loading up on Basic Grey goodies.


Just another detail image of one of the Basic Grey Pieces and stars.  Lots and lots of stars both punched and stickers.  I typed in some stats and Darian's team name.  We were sponsored by Dairy Queen and I came up with the team name of the Blizzards.  Cute eh?  LOL

That's about it for me today.  Speaking of playing ball my hubby and I are going to see the Jets play against the Giants tonight in the new stadium.  I can't wait as we are BIG football fans in this house and even BIGGER Jets fans.  :)

Love the layout ... I don't do too many two-page layouts anymore either, but it's always nice to throw one in every once and awhile. Have fun at the game.
