These two are hilarious and I just love watching them play together. Their friendship first formed in nursery at church and just grew from there to the extent that they always had to sit next to one another in nursery. One night Trotwood lay out blankets and pillows to make up a bed for his best friend so she could come and spend the night at our house. Now, where he got this idea from, I do not know but it was adorable. Click for credits.

Playing Santa

Christmas layouts in May? Right. What I should be doing is trying to catch up on my project life pages. Eek. I'm still in Week 8. These photos are from Christmas 2011 when I was pregnant with our second daughter whom we have nicknamed Betsey on this site. Click for credits.

Yes, these are older photos - I can't believe how much my child has grown in just a few short years! We took Trotwood to his first baseball game in June 2011. I remember it being a super hot day and wishing that I had worn shorts instead of jeans. The weather cooled off a bit after the sun went down. We had a great time watching the game and just visiting with friends. Click for credits.

P&Co iNSD Blog Hop

Happy interNational Scrapbooking Day (iNSD)! In honor of iNSD, I want to share a few of my favorite digital kits (featured above) with you, all available at Pixels & Co., of course! All of the designers at Pixels & Co. have mad skills and it was not easy for me to choose just four of my favorite kits to share today! I love of Karla Dudley's kits, and I chose Sidewalk Alphas because of the fun stamped look the alphas have (bottom left of above graphic). Celeste Knight's Basic Bright Journalers (top left) are awesome for Project Life or any other pages for that matter. Deena Rutter has several amazing digital collections that are just perfect for layouts of busy, little boys (like mine) and her Scoot Collection (bottom right) is one of my absolute favorites. And Robyn Meierotto, *sigh* what can I say about Robyn's collections except they are all beautiful and Lemonade Stand Papers (top right) are just one of my favorite collections she's created. 

And now for more good stuff! To celebrate iNSD, Pixels & Co is giving away some amazing prizes and this gorgeous kit entitled More or Less!
Check out the Pixels & Co. blog to read about some of the awesome prizes, how to get the coupon for the kit, and how to join in on all of our online iNSD festivities!

And if prizes and free stuff aren't enough, how about some more free stuff? The Pixels & Co. Creative Team members used the More or Less kit to create over 50 journaling cards that you can also download for free! All you have to do is visit each CT member blog and pick up the letter to create the coupon code that will give you the cards for free!
