Random Thought Thursday (and a layout)

Are you liking the random thoughts and things about myself that I am sharing on Thursdays? Or do you think it's silly and skip over it?

Today I thought I would share another passion of mine with you...ok, not really a passion, but something I love! Games. I LOVE playing games. We play a lot of card games, but I also love playing board games. But most of the ones I like, nobody ever wants to play because they take too long. :(



Am I the only one who loves games? Are they just not "hip"? And do you have any suggestions for new games I should ask for for Christmas...a really good one? What's your favorite game?

Ok...moving on...

I also wanted to share a layout with you today...it's been in my "to be posted" pile. :)


I used the fun Baby Mine collection from Fancy Pants. I layered the panels in back by popping some out at different heights. I think it creates a fun background. :)

Here are the close up's:




Thanks for stopping in today!!!

Have a wonderful day! :)

Adorable layout! My husband and I LOVE playing board games, as do many of our friends. It truly is one of my husband's passions. He collects games like I collect scrapbooking supplies!! :) Anyway, some games you may enjoy are Carcassone, Tobago, and Smallworld. I'll ask my husband if he had any other suggestions. :)

We love games here too! Have you played the card game, Set? It's a lot of fun. Love the sweet LO too!

Super cute layout! You are welcome to come over and play Risk with my husband. I never learned how to play that one and then went and married a political science/history major with an emphasis in philosophy and law! Yeah...nobody likes playing Risk with him! LOL! I love games, though...we just don't play them often because they are never quite as fun with only two people!

I love settlers. It's really popular here in Germany and there are Settlers trucks at fairs for people to play.

We are big into games here too and for every video game we own, we own at least 3 board games. It's a good balance! :) Cranium is our all time favorite!!! Love the layout...what GREAT dimension!

Your layout is so sweet. I really like the word interpration your did, so sweet.
I have to agree with everyone in your family, I don't like games that take forever....unless they are video games, teehee.

I love both video and board games! But it's hard for me to find someone to play! But, we really like to play "Trivial Pursuit"...

I really love this LO! I think it would fit perfectly on the wall of a baby/lil girl's bedroom!
