Studio Calico Sunday Sketch

Hi. I'm here today to tell y'all that a few weeks ago I was asked to contribute to the Studio Calico Sunday Sketch. Needless to say I was super excited and got right to work. Anyways, you can check out my post HERE. I also made a process video for this layout... here it is:

my favorite flower

Ryan... he's a man. Sometimes he needs help getting the idea. I've told him over and over that I love daisies, and he KNOWS that they are my favorite flowers, but he doesn't KNOW when to buy them. He doesn't get the point of flowers, bought at a store, in a vase. Needless to say, we don't have alot of greenery in the house. :) Anyways, the weekend of Easter this year, while at Trader Joe's in Midtown, we saw the prettiest Gerbera Daisies in a pot. I said something about them, and Ryan bought them. Now he didn't buy them on his own volition, but it's a start in the right direction. Since then he's bought me a another bouquet of daisies, which I lovingly accepted. So we're getting there. Anyways, I decided that I should document this practically momentous occasion, with a scrapbook layout :)

not your typical family photo

I have a new video to share. I'm off for summer break from university and I have been scrapbooking, reading, hanging out with friends, the works. YouTube has been a PAIN lately. I had to upload this video 4 times to get it to actually upload, every time there was some sort of "error". Anyways, I have another video I'm about to upload too, so keep an eye out for that coming soon.

I took this photo a couple of weeks ago, the lighting was terrible, Ryan and I were bumming, so we were both dresses terribly, & overall it just wasn't a photo taking kind of day... but I got out my camera anyways, I wanted to capture what our life REALLY looks like everyday, with me in front of the camera. :) So I got out my trusty camera remote ( I LOVE that thing), we were sitting in our favorite chairs, and I captured what I wanted, but then I thought, we don't have hardly any pictures of both of us + our cats, I mean come on they are our family! So we wrangled them up, sat back down, because they are a bunch of wiggle worm cats. & I snap as many photos as they would let me. This one was close to best...
Isn't that hilarious? Boog looks totally uncomfortable and unwilling to participate in anything, Mo looks like she's trying to get away from Boog, & Ted, well she's just being Ted. lol. So that's our family, I wouldn't change it for anything. :)

Here's my layout:
& a detailed shot

I used some of my Studio Calico Narrative Add-On, plus my favorite stamp, Plano by Hero Arts for Studio Calico & my go to mist Mister Huey Warm Calico. I feel like I've been using them on everything! So without further adieu, here's my video, I hope you enjoy it.
