Monday Musings

And we're back to Monday.

I had a great party on Friday night for my birthday with the girls. We had a blast. There were lots of laughs and reminiscing even if the party didn't start until late.

We also did some planting this weekend. Well, M planted while I supervised. For those of you who don't know-I have a black thumb. It's something I'm working on.


And we went on a monster walk downtownand Eugene made a friend! She's a cocker spaniel too. Her name is Indie and she's just the tiniest and the cutest. We're going to plan some puppy dates!


I've got a few Simple Scrapper layouts to share today as well-all about food. What a shocker!

When we were in Ottawa we visited a few of our old food haunts and of course there had to be layouts made about them.

This is the first double layout I've done in a while...


On Good Friday we went to Whalesbone-an awesome seafood spot-for fish and chips and fish sandwiches. It was delicious.


I stuck with lots of pattern in this layout and used a combination of instagram photos and regular photos-all taken with my iphone. Gotta love that little guy.

My favorite part might be the little tabs that came with my 'A Life Handmade' order last week.


After our lunch at Whalesbone I wanted to hit up the Marbleslab for some ice cream-a little cake batter + mini eggs = delicious. Love it.


Now I don't usually cut out pattern paper to use for embellishments but I couldn't help myself with the kite paper from My Mind's Eye. I used last months kit from 'The Paperie' and just loved the colors. I love how the little kite and the clouds came out too! So cute on top of that washi tape from Freckled Fawn.


And that's a wrap. It was a good weekend around here.
