land of the free banner

I'm back with my second post today. I created this banner for Clear Scraps. I love all the banners that are available! (Can you tell?!)

I absolutely adore this pp from Simple Stories. I am going to have to pick up more asap!

you make me happy

Sorry I have been mia lately, the past couple of months have been so busy for us and I have a lot of exciting things to share, which I will do soon, but I don't have the time today to do so. I will make some time this weekend, but today I am just catching up on several things.

This is going to be post one of two today. I was up on the Curtsey Boutique blog last week with this layout:

pp and elements: Pink Paislee
mustaches, twine and dyed doilies: the Curtsey Boutique
straws: Websters Pages

These photos were taken the night before Ashlyn had surgery. She was nervous and Skylar was doing her best to keep the mood light and entertaining for her. It worked and they had a great time playing with these mustache brads. Skye is such a wonderful big sister. <3 p="">

Summer Moments

Welcome to June! :) It's time for the 3rd challenge over on the Scrap & Play blog. This month, Fancy Pants Designs generously sponsored our design team. How cool is that?!

Here's my layout. I worked with the fabulous 'Nautical' collection and used chipboard, buttons and Fancy Pants on the Bingo board.

I created the anchor by cutting various words out of pp and then created the shape. 

Head on over to the Scrap & Play blog to join along in the challenge as well as see what the rest of the awesome DT ladies created!

catching snowflakes

Hi! Today challenge #2 went live for Scrap & Play. This time it is a word challenge- super fun, but this one really challenged me (that's the point, right? lol).

Here is my layout. I had an idea to try a "negative" title using some of the fabulous stencils from Hazel & Ruby. This challenge prompted me to think out of the box and step out of my comfort zone. I like the end result, but it was a challenge for me to keep all the white and not throw a bunch of color on it. Growth. lol

here is a closer image of the title:

I do hope you will come play along with this challenge! There is an awesome prize this month! Click here to check out the challenge and the beautiful examples from the team.
