Update, 2 Layouts and a Card!!!

Ok, as crazy as life has been for me lately, I managed to create these 2 layouts and card while the boys, hubs and pup were napping the other day! I had just received this fab kit from Freehand Scraps in the mail, and being upset that all of my precious papers are stored up right now, I couldn't resist playing with my new kit ;)
As I'm typing now, at midnight!, everyone is sleeping again, and even though they all now have ear infections, everyone's temps are normal! Yea!!! It's been a rough and long week...
and even though my temp at the moment is at 102.3 (I guess since I was the last one to catch it, I have another day or 2 to go), I can't sleep... so, I drank 3 Tylenol's with some water, turned on the tv, watching HGTV (thanks to Mom, I'm hooked! lol!)
... and I'm finally posting my stuff ;)
Aren't these 2 the cutest lil boys ever!?!?!!!
This is Nicky's best bud, Darien :) They really took a liking to each other a few weeks after they started Pre-K... they compliment each other sooo well! It's sooo cute to watch them play and interact with each other! Even though Nicky's a baseball fan and Darien is a soccer fan, they've agreed to not argue about it and do other things instead! LOL! They're both such lovable lil guys :)Ok, so I tried to do the lovely Jacquie's ofFamily and Crafting - Twist & Smoosh Ribbon Technique! Ummm, I think I did the twisting ok, but not enough smooshing...??? LOL! I'm thinking I need to practice some more! hee hee!
"Best Buds" Layout Details:

It is extremely rare for me to be in a pic, let alone be in a pic all on my own! lol! I just had to scrap myself!!! ;)
... and this roller stamp that came in the kit was sooo much fun to use! I will definitely be using it a lot, it will be perfect for so many projects, especially for my boys layouts!When I opened my kit, I immediately fell in love with these butterflies from Heidi Swapp! I adore butterflies! They're just perfect for me :)
... I just HAD to add some Primas! I've never met a girl who doesn't love her some Primas!!! ;)"Me" Layout Details:

I have a new scrappy rule!!! I am no longer storing leftover scrappy DP or CS! I have finally used most of it up and no longer have the extra storage space for it! So, everything must be used!!!
I just had to use the rest of this Journaling Card from Jenni Bowlin!!! I am loving the simple and clean look that I have been seeing on a lot of other blogs... I just had to give it a try too :) "Hi" Card Details:

I think that the Tylenol has finally kicked in and that I have tired myself out!
I am finally off to sleep! Hopefully everyone will wake up all nice and refreshed for a fun day at my sisters house! Boys are going to watch movies, while the gals are going to be getting their scrappy groove on ;) We can definitely use a change of scenery away from this messy place!
... btw! I have a ton of more stuff from this kit! I will definitely be creating more with it and I will definitely be buying more kits from them too!!!

Have a fab weekend :*)

Margie, Its easy to forget about ourselves when we scrapbook isn't it. What a great idea! I just might have to steal your idea and do the same.
Maybe you and Sara should make a challenge of it!
Hope the boys are better!
