Hello everyone!

I created this layout awhile back...just for fun :)

I used a mixture of leftover Gossamer Blue and Scrapbook Circle kits, along with a few items I already had in my stash.

That's my crew in the photo with their "catch" for the day!  They love fishing with their dad and are always so proud to show me their spoils.

I misted several Mister Huey's colors onto the white cards stock and painted all of the wood veneer pieces on my page black.

Thanks for stopping by...have a great day!


Week 18 & 19

Happy Saturday!

I'm a little late posting my weekly Life Pages spreads using the Gossamer Blue June kits, so here they are...

Week 18

Right Side:

For Week 18 I used a lot of color and bright photos and for Week 19 I went a little softer, with a few pops of color.  The GB Life Pages kits are always a perfect mix of colors and designs and always compliment the photos I include in my weekly spreads.

I'm excited to play with my July kits this afternoon and I'll be sharing my creations using them soon!  Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!


Where We Roam...

Happy Sunday, friends!

I created this ephemera pocket layout using the June Kits from Gossamer Blue to house some of our recent travel adventure photographs...

I simply created two vellum pockets on my 12x12 page and placed photos and journaling cards from our travels inside of them.

I added random bits and cute embellies from the kits alone the top of the pockets and added my title in the bottom left-hand corner of the page.

You can see how the entire page came together with a step-by-step tutorial on the Gossamer Blue blog.  

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!




This month's OHDEERME kit from Freckled Fawn is perfect for all of your summer scrapping projects!

And here's a layout I created using some watercolors and the gorgeous clear alphas that are included in this month's kit...

My full post on how I created this layout is up over on the FF blog.

Crate Paper Vellum Pocket Mini Album

Happy Friday, everyone!

You're probably wondering where I've been, lol.

I took a little break from my blog for several reasons...broken computer, end of school activities with the kiddos, a move to Kansas (for the summer), and the fact that I just needed a break to re-group and re-focus some of my creative attention :)  I'm back now (Yay!) and ready to post quite a few of my recent projects!

I shared this mini album I made using the new Open Road Collection from Crate Paper on the CP blog...

I created a vellum pocket to house my photos and ephemera.  I wanted to do something a little different with my photos so I used the 3x4 journaling cards from the Open Road Collection a little differently.

I printed some photos from our recent trip to Maryland at 3x4 and adhered them to the back of some of the journaling cards.  I journaled on the opposite sides and added different embellishments from the collection as well.

I also created some 6x6 pages to include in my vellum pocket mini...

I added photos to the front and embellished the back sides of these pages.

To view my full post, head on over to the Crate Paper blog...you're going to fall in love with the new Open Road Collection!

Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
