cloudy with a chance of layouts.

Well, it's not really cloudy out, but... I just needed a catchy title. I'm sure we've all been in that pickle, where we feel our titles are boring. hehe. Well, I have two pages to share today. Both of them are made with Studio Calico's July Kit: Continental. Take a peek below. :)

(Continental + turquoise mist + rasberry pink mist)

A page with some pictures of my brother and I while visiting my mom's friend. I scraplifted Sasha Farina's "Priceless" layout in the July Gallery. I had loved the misted background and wanted something similar! So happy with the way it turned out.

(Continental + Martha Stewart border punch)

My brother was just waking up on a snowy morning (I think it was snowy...), when I snapped the shot. It spiraled into the page, showcasing the picture. This is a scraplift of "Adoration" by princesscarriek21. I loved the simple design in the original & wanted a page like it.

Thanks so much for looking! I should be back tomorrow with another Continental page!

Have a lovely evening! xoxo - Kasey

on the road again.

Technically, it's not again, but... I needed a semi-snazzy title.

Here's the deal... I'm leaving to go visit my mom's friend. I'll be gone from today (July 7) to Sunday (July 11). I am really excited to be seeing her, but will miss so many things...

1. My puppy. I'm gonna miss her and her kisses. She's the sweetest!
2. My dad. He's staying home because of work...
3. My SC package. It's due to arrive tomorrow. I so wish I could be here, but I'm calling it my "return present". hehe.
4. My blog, the message boards, and the internet itself. Well, that's kind of self-explanatory... I practically live on the internet (which is kind of a bad thing...).

Anyways, I hope ya'll have a lovely rest of the week/weekend. I'll "see" you when I get back!

xoxo - Kasey

P.S. And if you're expecting any packages from... SC per se... I hope you enjoy them when they get there!

Happy July Fourth!

Just popping in to wish you all a very Happy July Fourth. My family is being lazy today and I don't think we will even have a real celebration! It's so sad. We may have a cook-out to celebrate. I'm going to try and push that. I feel like a total unpatriotic person if we don't do a single thing to celebrate the day.

I really want to thank all of the men, women, wives, husbands, moms, dads, siblings, aunts, uncles, grandmas, grandpas, cousins, friends, and everyone that is currently serving or has served in a war in some way. We are very blessed to have you all fight for our country. You protect us and give us our freedoms. You do so much for this country and for us. I am proud of you and your families for doing this. You mean so much to me and hold a special place in my heart, even though I have never met you.

Today I am remembering both of my grandfathers who fought in some of the wars in the past. Both of them have passed, but that doesn't mean they won't live on. I am celebrating my dad (he has not passed, thankfully), as well. He is retired from the Navy.

Who are you celebrating or remembering today?

I hope you all have a wonderful and blessed Fourth of July. Enjoy the day!

Hugs! xoxo - Kasey
