Sonoma Country!

Ok so I've recieved my Sonoma Kit... the latest Noel Mignon goodness last week and finally was able to get a couple things done... I can't wait to play with this kit more!
Here is a layout that I did for the challenge today. We were challenged to watch a recent Project Runway episode and draw inpiration (how cool is that??).. anywho I chose the one where they were asked to use natural elements in their design... here is my take on the challenge.

Here is another layout I did that I just love, SO very typical of Makenna!! this girl talks non-stop! lol!

Well we are in full go go go mode again here, baseball starts tonight. 3 have practice and I will be running my butt off again over and over. Somehow I will get it all done and fall into bed tonight! hehe
Okay I'm off to work... have a great day everyone!

thanks for stopping by! :)

Spring Break!

It's Spring Break this week here so we have been busy running around and trying to make the most of it! We have slept in and pretty much just hung out so far all week. Been over to see friends, went bowling and plan a big Six Flags trip this week too! Should be fun! Oh how I miss sleeping in and just not doing squat with the kids!! :)

Here are some cards I have done for CPS in the past couple weeks! Can I just say how in love I am with this Bella Blvd. paper... I have had it in my stash forever and dug it out to play along in the recent blog crawl and it's yummy!

Next I used the new Core Impressions cardstock for my CPS #158
