Easy Patterns - Scrapbooking

Easy Patterns - This is freaking AWESOME! I thought it would help me do some pages quickly and I was right. I did 4 pages, 2 tags, and a card all in one day (in between kids and life). This is more than I did in 6 mos. I still have to add journaling and some embellishments! This is the best $15 I ever spent. They don't have it available online anymore but I found it in my local scrapbook store and B&N too. This is a link to a freebie pattern on the site, and the link to the magazine is somewhere in the article I think.
These are my pages (Pattern #1)

February 25th - Visit to VA

Jeffrey and his new cousin Collin, Lesley's newest addition.
My Mom and Jeffrey, the day we left. Jeff was ready for a nap but would not settle down so grandma held him. He rarely sits still for anyone.

Tony and Alex made a jello frog and disected it for fun at grandma's house in VA last month. Dad looks like he had more fun than Alex did.

Hi, my name is Jeff...

This was Jeffrey introducing himself to the scarecrow in my mom's garden.

Spring has sprung here in TN!

My daffodils bloomed this year! Last year they just sprouted green and no flowers (bummer). Alex and Tony are going to their first NASCAR race in Bristol. I can't wait to see how it goes. We have no plans to go anywhere for Easter this year. Maybe a local restaurant for brunch! Tony is off traveling again to Tulsa and York this month. We registered Alex for kindergarten. Jeff is starting to use some words, but still prefers screaming at the top of his lungs in a pitch that makes my ears bleed to get what he wants.Come visit we love to have company!


Random Act of Kindness

Women’s shelters in the U.S. go through thousands of tampons and pads monthly, and, while agencies generally assist with everyday necessities such as toilet paper, diapers, and clothing, this most basic need is often overlooked.  You and I may take our monthly trips down the feminine care aisle for granted, but, for women in shelters, a box of tampons is five dollars they can’t spare. Here’s some good news: you can help us contribute to rectifying this situation by making a virtual donation below!  For each virtual donation, Seventh Generation will send a pack of organic cotton tampons or chlorine-free pads to a shelter in your state.
