Elle's Studio Thursday Sketch

This week I had time to play along with the sketch challenge over at Elle's Studio. The sketch was based off of a fabulous layout by Ashley Horton, and extremely talented scrapper, and a sweetie! :) So I knew I had to try and find time to play took me 3 days to finish this layout, lol, but I love the finished product!

Here the sketch

Super cute, right? I changed it up a bit, but I think you can still see where I was inspired.

I found this saying on Pinterest, and thought it was perfect for this photo. It's a lot easier to read in person, it says....Live Simply. Dream Big. Be Grateful. Give Love. Laugh Lots.
I used the Gossamer Blue April kit on this layout, along with some other bits and pieces from my stash. Lots of Dear Lizzy and Amy Tan. Loving those new lines!
Its so nice to be getting back into the creative mode, even if it takes me way longer than ever before to finish anything. lol. Hoping to have another project to share soon!
Thanks for popping in today, and I hope you have a great weekend, and make sure you take time to create something you love!

Beautiful Gifts

Hi all!! I'm back to share another layout today. I am really loving the Gossamer Blue April kit, there were so many fabulous items, most which had been on my wish list, and I am knocking out the layouts with it!

Every month, on the GB blog, they host a Pinspired challenge, and as a Pinterest addict, I love this challenge. The challenge for this month was to use gold. So I got to work on a layout...I used some of Elizabeth Kartchner's recent twopeas layouts as inspiration...mainly this layout and this layout. I just put my own spin on the style...loved the elements all going up the side, and I am a sucker for the die cut titles! :)

Here is my layout:

I'm excited too that it isn't even May yet, and I already have 3 layouts done with the GB April kit! One more and I'll be half way to a free album...they have an awesome incentive program, which you can read about here. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a kit club!! AND if you subscribe in April you receive a free goodie bag, valued at $25!  If you let them know I sent you, then I get one too! :) Definitely check them out!
Have a great day, and take time to create something you love!

Project 12: March edition

Hi all!! Happy Wednesday! Its the third Wednesday of the month, which means tonight I get to get out for a little me time, not only me time, but me CRAFTY time!! On the third Wednesday of the month, there is a "Bug Club" meeting in at my LSS, where we all get together, bring in anything we've been working on to share, get an awesome kit, and just hang out for a couple of hours! This is only my second week back since having the little guy, but I am so looking forward to it!

Today, I am going to share my Project 12 spreads for March. I had a little bit of trouble this month, getting everything to come together the way that I wanted. I am pretty happy with the end result, and still really loving this method of scrapping!

I used the March kit from Gossamer Blue on this, which I loved! Lots of Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm, and the new Amy Tan line. The colors are so bright and fun!!
My adorable title card is from Megan Klauer...I love it, and it went perfect with not only this month, but with the colors of the kit!
Lots of fun projects in my mind, now lets just see if I can get the kiddos to cooperate so I can get them down on paper! lol. How do you all manage kiddos and you time? I am totally open to hints, tips, suggestions! lol.
Linking this up to Paper Issues InstaLove me some instagram! lol
Hope you all have a fabulous day, and take time to create something you love!!

Today the Adventure Begins

Might seem like an odd title, for a picture of the first lost tooth, but I think it fits perfect. When I look at this photo, I see a little lady growing up. Long gone are her "baby" days. This was right before she started kindergarten, when she was just starting to really become her own person. She is amazing, and when I look at this picture, to me it symbolizes the beginning, of HER grand adventure...her growing up, and learning even more who she is, the person she wants to be.

Since this picture, she has changed so much, both in her looks, number of teeth (lol), and how grown up she is. She is truly an amazing person, and I am so beyond honored and blessed that I get to live her adventure with her. I cannot wait to see the woman that this beautiful girl becomes. :)
Thanks for stopping in today, hope you all are inspired to take time to create something you love!
****Linking this up to Paper Issues, they have a super fun Instagram Issue going on right now. Link your up here.
**** All supplies are from the Gossamer Blue April kit.

Tea Party Mini

Hi all!! Today I wanted to hop on here and share a mini album I made a while back.

I have a good friend who is a fabulous photographer, check out her site K.G. Photography. Last summer, she hosted a mini session that was vintage tea party themed. It was gorgeous, and my little ladies absolutely loved it.

So...with those photos, a line mini from Maya Road, and the Dear Lizzy Neapolitan collection, I but together this little mini.

Just realized I forgot to photograph the cover, and a few pages...I'll try and get those up on here asap. Blame on the baby mommy brain! lol.

Don't those ladies look beautiful :) Love my girls, and these turned out fabulous! Was very happy with them, and how this album came together for me.

Lots of fun with layering...I actually made it a little too thick for the binding, but I still love it! :)

Hope you all have a great day, and take time to create something you love!
