Sunday, June 26, 2011

Hello there. I have been so so busy lately...not as much time as I'd like to blog and I've been missing it. So I'm stealing a minute to post a few things I've been creating.

First, have you seen the newest collections from Anna Griffin?

Fun with Home Tweet Home from My Little Shoebox

Tuesday, June 14, 2011

Hello friends. I can't believe how fast June is getting away from us. We kicked off the summer with a road trip to Sedona this past weekend to visit my Mom and Dad and take the kids to the Grand Canyon. It was amazing and I'll be posting some pics very soon.

 I have been so busy working on assignments and getting things ready for Lily's birthday that I haven't had a chance to share some assignments I created for My Little Shoebox and wanted to post them today.
This month I was creating with our Home Tweet Home collection so I decided to scrap up some clean and simple layouts.

I love the Bird House paper from this collection. Those little clouds are so stinkin cute and perfect for my Easter layout!

I love my kids. They make me so happy and I am really proud to be their mom.

My daughter loves her Dad. She is 100% Daddy's girl. She got a photo book for Easter and has been asking me to fill it with photos with her and the family. I love that she is starting to scrapbook already!

Make sure you visit the My Little Shoebox blog for inspiration and tutorials from our design team. We have some fun stuff to share with you everyday!

Have a great day!

Mix it Up!

Friday, June 3, 2011

Hello friends! Thanks for stopping by today! If you're doing the My Little Shoebox hop you should be coming from Becky's blog. If you haven't started the hop yet then head over to the My Little Shoebox blog here to start at the beginning.

For today's hop we are mixing the collections up a bit and creating some fun projects for you.

Here's a look at my mixed up 8 1/2 X 11 layout.


Mix it up Supplies: Oasis, Sew Cute and Home Tweet Home collections and a template from Crafter's Workshop.

I purchased this cherry blossom template months ago at a Scrapbook expo to use with the Oasis collection. It was very easy to work with. I used distress inks to add the color and then created my layout over the inked image. It's great for mists too!

Now it's time for you to head over to the very talented Susan Dupre!
