A Lazy Sunday

So here it is, 3:38 PM and I am still in my PJs. After a day where I was on the run the whole day, Roger and I have been pursuing our hobbies today and I have found no reason to get dressed.

Here are the pages from their birthday I created using Sugar Alpha & Goodies by retrodiva {designs}™ and Torn 2Pager QuickClick Template Created by Jamie Heyl available at Digital Scrapbook Place:

As a bonus for purchasing my subscription before the release date, I received a special prize package, includng a collaboration add-on to Cia Bella kit by Miriam Lima and Holley VanDenBerg and PDQ template by Kim Hill of CGEssentials. Using the Cia Bella and PDQ template, I created the following layout last night from Grandma and Grandpa's visit to the Botanical Center with the grandchildren:
