Jillibean Sprout Contest and Sissy's Scrap Challenge

TGIF!!! Even though I sometimes don't look forward to Saturday mornings 'cause we have to get up early for T-ball! ;) I'm still happy it's Friday! it has been a very rainy Friday, but I've been too busy to dwell!

Well, actually, not 100% true - I did dwell on it for about 20 minutes this morning when I got stuck under a downpour holding big bag of dog food, broken umbrella and car keys lost in the bottom of my purse :) Good times! lol

Ok, moving on ;)

Here's this week's Sissy's Scrap Challenge! A Layout Sketch made by little sissy, Sara (of Scrap Happie!).
And, I finally decided to use my Jillibean Journaling Sprouts that I received in one of my Memory Works kits!
Jillibean is having a Journaling Sprout Contest!!! Winner will receive a $100 cash prize! How awesome is that! (The contest deadline is June 15th.)

... and here's what I finally created!

There isn't much to it! I flipped the sketch around a bit! I wanted all of my pics to fit on one layout!
This was Nicky's first bus trip to his first field trip to a local farm! We had so much fun!
He was suppose to go on his second bus trip to his second field trip to a local small zoo, but was cancelled because of the rain... there were a lot of sad lil faces sitting in class this morning!
I made a second layout to save the rest of the trip stuff (permission slip, etc.)...
Paper(s): Colorbok Friendly Forest Photo Mats and DP.
Stamp(s): StudioG Alphabet Stamp Set.
Ink(s): Stampin Up Basic Black Marker and Spica Glitter Marker.
Accessories: Colorbok Friendly Forest Chipboard, Alpha Stickers and Flower Brad; Jillibean Journaling Sprouts; Stampin Up Corner Punch; Creative Memories Rounder Corner Punch.
Thanks for looking!
Can't wait to see who joins in with us this week :)

Love this LO! I also love your new blog design, the Fantasia sign you made (it ROCKS), and your new family member (how cute is she?!). Can you tell that I'm playing catch-up with blog reading tonight? LOL. I can't wait to rejoin you ladies with your challenges. After doing a LOAD for the month of May, I need a little break, but I'm hoping to get back in the swing later this month. I've missed you gals! BTW, what did you think of the new Sookie book? Hugs to you...
