Layout: "Relaxing"

All papers are LilyBee Design Lovely collection, as are the chipboard flowers. Letter stickers are Basic Grey. The brown ball trim is from my stash and the "Family Times" rub-ons are from a swatch book from Creative Imaginations that I found on the clearance rack at Michaels as well as the glitter frame by Making Memories that I paid .49c for.

Speaking of.....if you have a Michaels local and have not ventured in lately, you should. The have completely redone their paper crafting aisles (for the worse if you ask me) and since they started this about a month ago, there has been a TON of stuff on the clearance ends. I got boxes of Prima flowers for $1.49 and lots of other odds and ends for pennies. I'm not impressed with the re-set though.

Believe it or not, I only managed three challenges out of this layout!
2. Frosted Designs - Glitter (on the frame)
3. Pink Elephant - Use Black and White photos

Its a simple page, but I like it. I snapped these photos when the kids weren't looking. We were just having a nice day at a local historic colonial village near our home. There are quaint little shops, a lovely lake and wildlife and a yummy bakery! We were bored one day and took a ride (its only 10 minutes from home) and just sat on the benches "people watching" and having a donut from the bakery! It was quality time spent, just the three of us.

And now, I MUST close my eyes. Actually, they aren't giving me an option...they are closing on their own! Sleep tight my blog friends!
