Best Summer Ever

Hello friends! I have another Gossamer Blue layout to share with you today! For this layout, I wanted to focus on the more fun and bright colors and embellishments in the kit. The Pinkfresh Up in the Clouds items were perfect for this summer layout.

This photo holds a special place for me. This fall, I went back to work...first time I had been back full time since having our first daughter 8 years ago. I was feeling all kinds of emotions...I was excited, terrified, guilty, name it, I was feeling it. So, the kiddos and I spent that last week spending as much time as we could together...and this day at the lake was one of my favorites from that week.

I snapped this photo as they were walking down to the water, and it just hit me how much was about to change for us...and how hard, but hopefully good it was going to be.

Now, the school year is almost over, and I am so looking forward to having the summer to spend everyday with these three sweeties, and have another summer just as good ( if not better) than the last one was! :)

Have a great day, and take time to create something you love!

Simple Joys

Hello friends! We are on Spring Break here this week, so I have been enjoying the nice weather and time home with my kiddos...and I have snuck in a little crafty time when I can! :) Still putting the finishing touches on most of those.

So today I have a layout to share with you from a few weeks back, this one is using the Gossamer Blue March kit. I loved the pink, mint, black, and gold color scheme of this kit...with a few fun and bright embellishments and papers thrown in using the Pinkfresh Studio Up in the Clouds collection!

For this layout, I focused on the first color scheme...bringing lots of elements from the Life Pages kit along with the Main Scrapbook kit.

I loved the acrylic "2" gether embellishment from the February kit, and had been bummed that it had never made its way onto a layout. so I was beyond excited that it fit in so well on this one.

The rose pattern paper are all little out of the norm for me, but I thought they went so well with this photo, that I embraced them, and tried to find the right way to make them work for my style. I was pleasantly surprised with the finished product! :)

I will be sharing a few more layouts this week...and be on the lookout for a fun review coming soon!! :)

Have a great day, and take time to create something you love!
