Paper Bakery

Wow it's been a crazy week! Paolina's birthday was on Tuesday, and just when she and I were headed out the door to have a "girls day" to celebrate, Santiago's school nurse called to tell me that he had a temperature of 102.4 and that it might be strep throat. We got him in to see his doctor and it ended up just being some kind of viral infection, but he continued to run a fever for several day and consequently missed the last few days of school. In the midst of all that I've been attempting to finish making favors for Paolina's birthday party tomorrow as well as spending all this morning baking cupcakes. Despite the chaos and major disruption in my schedule, I squeezed in the time to work on one layout. I really find scrapbooking cathartic, providing me a way to release some stress when I'm feeling overwhelmed.

For this page I used the current sketch at Paper Bakery.


I used photos of Santiago when we were out visiting Dallas in April of 2011. He was just a few days short of his third birthday. I also used lots of My Mind's Eye Kate & Co. Oxford Lane, as well as a little Echo Park For the Record 2.

Thanks for looking. I hope everyone has an awesome weekend!
