What makes a bad day better...

A little bit of scrappy time, of course. :) I have had one of those days today, the ones where there aren't really any "big" things going wrong, but the ones where there are so many little ones and each and every one just rubs you the wrong way. Please tell me I am not the only one that has these days!

Thankfully I had two beautiful little ladies that just make it all better. :) So after a little cuddle time with them, they laid down for a nap, and I decided that the house could be cleaned tomorrow. :)

On the fourth, we took a little day trip to a local mill and spent the day, just walking around enjoying. I happened to snap this lovely little shot of my husband and Miss E.


I kept this one pretty simple, I wanted the focus on that photo. This is so them. She is daddy's little girl. :)

I used the most recent sketch from Sketchy Thursdays.

I don't know what I would do without them! lol! It seems like the only scrapping I get done any more is my weekly layout for them. :) I am also going to link this up for Amy Heller's "Scrap Your Scraps Summer Challenge" :)
Hope everyone is having a great week! I am off to a pool party, hopefully the day keeps going up from here! :)

Be blessed!!

Beautiful LO, Amanda! Yep, I am having one of those days, but I have been unable to come up with a single crafty idea. Your LO is really gorgeous, tfs :)

Your LO is beautiful and such a sweet photo deserves a great LO like this one.
Smart you to stop and enjoy some scrappy time and re-energize yourself. Housework will always be there!
Thank you for sharing and inspiring! :)
