it has been a while

When I decided to, start a blog I really had intended on posting at least twice a week. So far it hasn’t worked out that way, maybe summer wasn’t the time to start one but I’m sure things will pick up when Monkey #1 starts kindergarten and Monkey 2 goes to preschool. I haven’t been very scrappy lately, summer again I think, but I have made some cards. We have an online crop starting today at in the paper scrapbooking board and they are always good to get some creative juices going. I plan to scrap a little tonight after the football game, Winnipeg Vs Hamilton yet again.

I bought some mew scrapbooking supplies this week, I know I shouldn’t have, didn’t really need anything but I couldn’t resist. I love Basic Grey, they make the most beautiful and cute paper, I bought the Oliver paper pack to do some pages of Monkey 1 and took some great pictures on Wednesday of monkey 1 that will go perfectly with this one piece that is a forest image in the background with some characters hiding behind the tree, just need to print the photo. I also bought some paper from the max and whiskers line to do a page about our cat, it’s been a long time since I scrapped about Pete.

I also bought some glimmer mist in a lovely color called spring rain, I can’t wait to use it, it should make for some great water pages. Other things I bought were the Bazzill in stitch’z 8×8 circles, it should be great for making circles with thread, brads anything really from as small as 1 inch to as big as 8 inches. Some extremely mini, mine brads in primary colors, I thought they would make excellent sprinkles for cupcakes on birthday cards. Turquoise stickles, (probably my favorite color) some pretty gray lace for a special page I have in mind. Adhesive I was running low on glue lines and photo mounts. A train stamp and 2 packs of Basic Grey buttons. Then I went to Michaels, and got more things I didn’t need but they had a lot on clearance. I got 3 packs of crystal mini stars (blue green and silver), a clear date stamp a puffy glitter title that says superstar and is orange, some 3 dimensional stickers about dads, and 2 spools of ribbon.

Here are a few pictures of my Monkeys,  they were taken on Wednesday at Riley Park in Calgary. This was the first time we visited this park and we will definitely go again.

and of course Monkey #2 firmly planted on the ground, he is not a fan of heights like his older brother, but give him a year and he will be climbing trees too, he is just a little short to get up there yet

Monkey # 3 had his first ever playdate with a baby his own age. He and Karl had a blast playing together, well as much as a 6 month old can play anyway, they each loved the others hat and were quite interested in each other.   Here is Monkey 3 sitting in a tree with his daddy
