New banner & a layout

Morning all.

I played on my blog here yesterday changing my header and a few other things. I think I'm happy with it now. It just needed a bit of a make-over. LOL! I was getting tired of the other one.

So, it's Friday! Yeah!! Love Fridays! And it's the long weekend (for us here in Canada! ;)) Hoping to have some nice weather to see a parade and ride bikes, etc. with my kiddos. Plus I have a bunch of scrappy assignments to work on and complete by the end of the month!!

Speaking of an assignment I had a challenge due today for The Inspired Scrapbooker. My challenge was to create a layout/project about Animals. So one day this past week as I was tidying up my boys' room I saw their collection of stuff animals. And believe me, there IS quite a collection. Anyways, I lined up some of the animals that we had bought our youngest before he was born - they still look so cute and soft, ... except for one that has been well loved!

Here's my layout.

Supplies used: October Afternoon patterned papers, Core'dinations cardstock, Fiskars border punch, EK Success corner punch, Basic Grey chipboard alpha, Fancy Pants chipboard (heart, flowers, journal shape), twine, buttons (Chatterbox)

Well, I'm off to enjoy the day (actually working today but still hoping to enjoy the day).
Have a great weekend.


  1. Cari, I think your blog makeover is a huge success - it looks great!

    I've already left a comment on The Inspired Scrapper about this layout, but I have to do it here too because it's my most favorite layout EVER!! I loooove the composition, the topic, the photos, the papers, the details - everytyhing!! I'm going to scraplift this layout every which way many times! :) TFS!!

    My fingers are crossed for good weather this long weekend - we will be moving into the same neighbourhood as you - tomorrow will be our 'official' first night in our new home. I know exactly what parade you are referring to and while I had hoped that we could make it, I think our day will be way to busy with moving stuff, so I hope you and your family enjoy!!! Maybe we'll run into you there next year! :)

  2. Adorable Cari! Love the details!

  3. Such a sweet layout!
