how about another layout from the Nook kit?

Happy Friday, everyone!

Just a quick post today to share a layout I made using the November kit from My Scrapbook Nook.

I love the Circa 1934 collection from Cosmo Cricket but has having a hard time finding pictures that would do it justice because of the color scheme. The great thing about this collection is that there are some neutral grid pages like this one and I decided to just do it up and not worry too much about making everything match perfectly. I wanted to use this picture from the balloon fiesta that we went to in Albuquerque last month so I went with it ☺ I misted the background, cut out some 6's from one of the papers, used the little banner chipboard and there ya go:


Yes, in case you didn't know before, I am pregnant- about 12 weeks along now and I have been so, SO, so sick this time around. Perhaps it's a boy, perhaps it's twins, perhaps it's another girl ☺This little kiddo was a surprise for sure since we'd been trying for a year with no success and then I found out kind of as an after-thought because I went to the doctor for something else and they ran all kinds of labs and the doctor caught me as I was leaving to tell me that basically, "by the way, you're also pregnant." You should have seen the look of shock on his face. I don't know if maybe he thought this would be bad news for us? I had to reassure him that it was welcome news. Each pregnancy is different and this one has me so tired, so sick. And, it's the reason I had to cut back on my scrapbooking that I love so much. I haven't been able to do hardly anything the last month except for the bare minimum for the Nook, American Crafts and Jillibean Soup. I had to let go of everything else, which was sad and hard but the best thing for right now. One of these days I'll be ready to jump right back in! 




So there ya go...I hope you have a fantastic weekend.
