I'm back with a Bang, Happy 4th of July 2015!!

Hello everyone.  I'm back!! Just kidding never left, only added to our beautiful growing family. I would like to introduce our newest member of our family,
Zakariyah Jozef

It is so awesome to see already in 4 months his unique personality.
Big sister loves her baby brother
( My favorite, he was just as surprise to hold his bottle as I was!)

Happy 4th of July 2015!

I am so excited to share this project that I have been working on for a couple of days.
Very thankful for my husband for helping with the kiddies so I could do some crafting.
What a fun stress reliever :)

I have also decided to enter my page layout into a couple of fun monthly blog challenges.

1)  July tic-tac-toe challenge over at

I went straight down the middle.  I used red star brads, some blue and white stars and some pretty striped paper.  I really like this challenge because it helped me with using my embellishments

2) July 2015 Sketch Challenge over at

I love the arrangement of this sketch.  It was perfect for my three boys that are in school.

3) Kelly's color challenge

This color challenge helped me use some paper that I would not have normally used.  I love the colors.

4) My own personal challenge.  To combine all challenges and use
some CTMH products.

I used July 2015 SOTM
