Haley's 12th Bday

Hi friends! Can I just tell you I am doing the happy dance now that it is Friday and the week is over? This week seemed so long, but maybe that was because school started this week. This is the first year that the girls are going to different schools. It just seems so weird...and stressful at the same time, but I am sure that once we get the routine down we will be better. I am a working mama so all I have to say is THANK GOD FOR MY MOM! I am always thankful for my mom but especially now. We wouldn't be able to do what we do if it weren't for her. She makes sure that our kiddos get picked up from school and taken where they need to go...if it weren't for her I don't know what we would do! So here's to you Ma!

This is a page layout that I finished up recently. Haley's 12th Birthday a few years ago. What a fun birthday this was! She decided that she wanted a sleep over. So when all the girls got here we got everything set up in the basement for them and then we went over to Knolla's Pizza. Have you ever been there? YUM-O! It is the BEST pizza I have ever had! So if you haven't been you should try them out! Anyway, after pizza we came home and I took picture of them out in the yard...what cuties! The background of this layout is Bazzill Turquoise cardstock. and I cut 2 different patterned papers in stips and glued them down. The words Laugh, Friends, Giggle, Crazy in along the seams are actually ribbon. The layout up on top has a picture of Sidney and her friend, you know it is so hard for little sis when big sis has friends over, so she had a friend spend the night too! I thought that photo would look best cut in a circle then instead of matting it I used the Creative Memories circle cutters to cut both the photo and the cardstock circles around the photo. And in typical "Toni fashion" let's not let anything go to waste...I used the circle from the middle of the cardstock pieces on different parts of the layouts above. After the girls finished their "photo shoot" they headed downstairs for cards, facials and movies! Good times!

Thanks for peekin' in. I love to hear from you! I hope that you get out and enjoy this beautiful weekend weather! I am going to try to get out and about with the kids tomorrow and take some photos!
