So Rad

Soccer season is in full swing!  It gets stressful and busy, but I love being a soccer mom.  Watching my daughter learn about teamwork while also improving her personal skills is very cool.  It helps that I really like the other parents so hanging out on the sidelines is a good time.

I made this page to document the soccer moments.  I decided to go with bold colors that pop together.  I used the Webster's Pages Happy collection by Alison Kreft.  I am a big fan of her collections.

I incorporated the papers in the collection, doing some hand cutting.  I also added in some oldie, but goody products like the center bling in the star.
I am rushing off now to get ready for a game!  I am glad Ella and Nathan will have memories and positive experiences they can hold on to!

Inside the Art: Joy Always

This month's kit over at Inside Out Visual Journaling is about This Moment.  I love the word moment.  A  moment frozen in time, I moment you will never forget or a moment you wish never happened....there are so many possibilities.

I went with the idea of the moment when my kiddos were born.  I have the worst long term memory.  Yet, I remember how I met my husband and the birth of both of my children so vividly.  I wanted to write some details down about the moments.

I love the papers in this kit and use this gem as is!  I simply added some extra details and a cluster with my photo.  I wrote a ton of journaling to share the memories.  Without Steve, I wouldn't have these two blessings.  One amazing moment led to two more.
Truth be told, there have been many other moments since then that are unforgettable!

Mother's Day Love

In celebration of Mother's Day, I am thinking about how much my two kiddos have impacted me.  They make me crazy, cause extreme irritability and fatigue.  But I can't imagine life without them because the giggles and hugs and love makes it all good.

I love this card from the Beautiful Chic line from Webster's Pages that speaks to how my kids are the best thing to ever happen to me.  I am so thankful for them and all their antics. 
I tell them often how I feel.  I say sorry when I yell too much or get grumpy.  I never apologize for holding them responsible for contributing to our house. 

This Mother's Day, I want to be spoiled.  But at the same time I am want to be grateful for all I have.
