Rainy Sunday here

Well today was suppose to be the first game of the spring soccer season (yesterday the girls started, but B has decided to commitments with dance(it was a long hard decision for her)) but right as we got to church we got the message that the league had postponed all games due to the weather. We will now play a week longer in then the weather should be nicer.

This gave me an extra day to catch my breath even though we have Dan's mom visiting. Got to watch a little bit of pre-season looked nice and sunny in Florida. Then I did watch a little bit of the Nascar race before we headed out to dinner.

Finally got around to uploading my March projects over at Coordinates Collections today. Loved the mix of Fancy Pants "It's your Day" papers with Jillibean Soup "Pasta Fagioli" in the "Party Time" kit. Great colors!

My favorite layout this month....

No alpha in this kit so I used some Jillibean corrugated alphas from my stash. I didn't have enough of the same color to complete my title, so I used the Jenni Bowlin paint dabber included in the kit to make them all match. From the CC store I bought some of the Pasta Fagioli sprouts and used a few here layering with foam squares. The red cardstock, pattern paper and Jenni Bowlin diecut journaling spot were included in the kit. I added kraft cardstock and some Jillibean corrugated stars from my stash. I used a brown pen for outlining my pattern papers/cardstock and drawing that frame around the edge of the background pattern paper. I am really finding that I like the look of a few hand drawn elements on my layouts lately.

You can check out the rest of my projects and my fellow DT members projects here in the gallery. As usual some pretty inspiring stuff. I will be posting full details and pictures of my projects on the CC blog on Tuesday. Would you like to win this kit? Check out the details in this blog post at Jillibean Soup.

I was wondering what the brown was around the photo mat, and I couldn't enlarge the photo enough to see. It's not a straight line -- did you use dots? "stitches"? It really made the photo mat stand out! Love your projects, as always!

Cute LO Jen! Looks like we will have left Disney before you arrive, what a shame, it would have been great to have met up! Our Easter school vacation is the second week of April.
