This is the Life!

**If you're hopping over to find my Let's Scrap Blog Hop Challenge, click here.**

Today over at Let's Scrap, a fun new sketch is posted!  This is the sketch used to pick the new Design Team that starts this month!  I'm excited to stay on as a Continuing Design Team member!  I just love this site and all of the inspiration that is shared there.  The sketches are awesome and have totally changed the way I scrapbook!  If you haven't visited before, be sure and check it out and meet the fabulous new Design Team!

One of the things I love about Let's Scrap is the two-page sketches.  This week, I only did one side of it, but hope to finish the other side later.  Here's my layout:

And here's a close-up of the ribbon:

And here's the sketch:

I just love the title of this layout.  This little phrase is our saying.  We've been saying it ever since Evan was 4.  We were swinging on the playset in our backyard one day when Evan looks at me and says, "This is the life Mom."  It was just the sweetest thing ever.  It's the little moments like that, that I never want to forget!!  So, from then on, that's become our saying.  Little moments that make us happy, times when we're together, and times we never want to forget, always seem to be followed with - "This is the life."  And it is.  We are so truly blessed - and I love that my boys realize that!!  :)
