A fun layout I made using a tutorial video from Wilna over at Two Peas in a Bucket!

It was a painting challenge...and I'm terrible with paints but wanted to give it a try :)

we miss you Rosie!

I'd love to share a very colourful layout featuring my daughters guinea pig that passed away a few months ago.

The layout is for a challenge over at Scraptastic Club. The challenge was to use six paper strips...I wove the six strips together to place around the photo.

Happy Saturday!

I just finished a layout and wanted to share it! I used three of my favorite pictures from our Hawaii trip last March.

missing california!

I love looking back at pictures from our September trip to California...especially when it is SO cold here! I love the snow we have but the cold wind and cloudiness really gets to me!

I found inspiration for this layout from two challenge. The first is from a sketch challenge over at the Elle's Studio blog and the second from a Thursday Recipe Challenge at October Afternoon. The October Afternoon recipe challenge was to use 6 patterned papers, 4 of one shape (I used 4 butterflies), 2 brads, and 1 chipboard element with bonus points if you use 3 or more collections on your page (yeah I did...Farm Girl, 5 & Dime, Fly a Kite, and The Thrift Shop)!

Happy Thursday!

goofy dog!

Sheriff loves to come camping with us...I'm pretty sure it is his favorite thing to do! He loves getting SO dirty and living outside for the weekend.

The layout is based on a sketch at the Pretty Little Studio blog.

more clipboards!

I was in an "altering mood" this afternoon so I decided to make some very bright clipboards!  I used Basic Grey Indie Bloom papers and Maya Road flowers.





Have a wonderful evening,

a couple of mini's!

Happy Thursday!

Just wanted to share a couple of mini albums.

The first is a Maya Road Mixed Half Circle Chipboard Banner Album.

The second one is so fun!!! It was one of my favorite mini albums to make, all about our first family vacation to California. I used a Maya Road Beach Pail Chipboard Album for this one.
