A layout and a giveaway!

Hi bloggy friends! I'm popping in from the most. stressful. friday. of. all. time. Let's just say I decided to forgo my weekly trip to Dunkin Donuts (where I indulge in a French Vanilla latte and bring home some treats to share with S) because it would be too stressful. Clearly, things are not good.

To take my mind off that to-do list, here's a layout I created a few months back for a Write. Click. Scrapbook post:


The photos here are from the first day of our Disney trip, when we went to the Magic Kingdom. I wanted to echo the sheer excitement and fun we felt on that day.

Can you spy the stamps on this one? They're one of my absolute favorite Studio Calico sets!

And while we're at it, as much as I love to scrap my married adventures, I'm so glad I have albums upon albums full of my goings-on as a single gal. Whether you're currently or formerly single (hopefully we all fall in one of those categories!) this Ella ebook would be absolutely perfect for you.

Would you like to win a copy? If so, please leave a comment below telling me a fun memory from YOUR single years! (I will choose a winner next Friday)

Wishing you all a happy, stress-free weekend with lots of summer fun:)

  6. No longer single either, but sure do have great photos from those days that need to be scrapped. One of the most eventful times would be a train ride some friends and I took to the Rockies. We had no plans or reservations but everything worked out perfectly.

    Hope your weekend gets better soon!

  8. Sorry you're having that kind of week. Hope the weekend is better! Is it cheating to say my favorite memory from my single-dom is that year when I lived in London :) Thanks for the chance to win!

  9. Back in college, my best friend Rachel had a BMW convertible, and we could often pick sunny days to drive to the next city over to shop and go out for dinner. It was so nice to get away for a couple hours and hang out with Rachel. :)

  16. I'm now a wife and mom to 2. When I was single I did two years of National Service in Israel teaching underprivileged children in the Galilee in Israel. They were so happy and eager to learn and we tried, besides teaching them, to male the school year full of fun with extra curricular activities and special events. I shared an apartment with 6 girls and all together we had lots of fun! those two years were lots of fun!
    Shavua Tov and hope you have a fun and brighter week!

  17. A fun memory from my single years? Being able to do whatever I wanted-reading, shopping, relaxing...without having anyone interrupt me! My time (like everyone else's) is so limited now w/kids, a husband and work! Despite all the complaining about not having enough "me" time, I wouldn't change it for a thing! Hope your weekend is getting better!

  18. What a great layout! You guys do look so happy and excited! And I love the cloud stamps! I have a friend who this book would be perfect for... lets think a happy memory from single life... well we'll keep it clean. I remember leaving work on Friday afternoons and when asked if I had any weekend plans I could say, "I'm going to do whatever I want, whenever I want!" Not the case any more, but definitely no regrets!!!
