Precious Love

I don't know about you but my free time is very limited and I usually reserve Saturdays for playtime, but lately I have other things that are using up that time so I am feeling a bit cheated out of my fun time.

Sunday I spent most of my time in the kitchen, made a chocolate pie for my dh, lemon pound cake for work, some banana and bacon scones with peanut butter with brown sugar glaze for me, citrus and chile braised short ribs for dinner for tonight and frankly I was a bit exhausted after doing all that on top of my normal swim class in the morning.

My dh tried to tempt me to go on a motorcycle ride with him but I was just feeling too exhausted. After he left I found my way into my craft room and was just enjoying being in there. I started to put a few things away, picked up a few pictures and before you know it I had actually completed a layout so I was really feeling pretty happy at this point.

This layout is of my new little grandbaby. I just love little feet and hands, they are so sweet. I haven't journaled yet but I think you get the gest of what I am thinking. And as you can see, I have used a bunch more of my PL cards. I like this line I believe it's called Dream. It was one of the lines my bff gave me part of her kit. It really is very delicate and pretty, perfect for anything girl, baby or love.

I also did some splattering with paints, used a heart punch for the vellum and pink hearts, added some enamel dots, epoxy heart, glittered a butterfly die cut and cut the title from my silhouette and a die. It is so nice when things just go together so quickly, especially given my short amount of play time.


  1. Wow, I would have loved to have been in your kitchen, Leslie, that all sounds delish! Such a sweet layout, glad you found some time to play with some paper! :)

  2. Oooh, that little baby foot is so precious! And I agree with Elise- your kitchen must be heaven on earth! Great layout!

  3. This is my new favorite of yours, Leslie! Everything about it is pure perfection. Love it!
