Endless summer, no more....

Whew, so glad it's finally Friday here in Bella Gypsy Land. It's been a long week. I think mostly because I've been counting the minutes to the release of Breaking Dawn at midnight tonight. Otherwise, I don't mind our looong weeks. I'm severely dreading the start of school next week. I wish summer could go on forever. We've had such a blast this summer!

Here are some recent layouts to give you an idea of how much fun we've been having :)!

a couple more LOs and a sick kiddo

Two gorgeous new layouts to share today :)! I just love this photo of Julian. I snapped it a few weeks ago and still get a kick out of it every time I see it. I used Still One of the Gang by Micheline Martin, Shawna Clingerman and Lauren Grier. You can pick it up at Scrapartist and Sweet Shoppe.

Another adorable picture of Julian here too. My sister and I went up to Once Upon A Child to find some sleepers for Julian and this one was too irresistable to pass up! Sooo cute! You can find this darling kit by Karen Lewis at Digital Freebies!
Gabriel is under the weather AGAIN! He just got over an icky cold a few days ago and now he's sick again. This time it's a really nasty sore throat. He tested negative for strep but I don't kow how. Poor kiddo can't catch a break :(. Hopefully he will feel better soon.

good ole summertime

It's been like a million years since I actually made a real blog post here! I figured I'd start things off again in style with a bunch of my recent layouts :)! We've had a lot of fun so far this summer! I am going to be so sad to see school start back next month. It starts back insanely early on August 7th! I'm not going to dwell on that though, I'm just going to keep on enjoying the wonderful summer days we still have ahead of us!
