Beautiful Sisters

I'm pretty sure I've never shown this one on my blog yet....it was for a vintage project I was working on.  Can you tell flowers was the theme? Oh my heart, how I love flowers!!!

I used doilies to give the the layout a soft frame and 'tucked' in some of the flowers and additional elements to surround the main photo.

Simple journaling and letter stickers for the title finish out the design.

Have a great day everyone!

Sweet You

One of the biggest joys of crafting for me, is creating something that is really effortless, with a touch of understated elegance.  I really like having one focal point and the smallest amount of embellishments surrounding it:

Sweet you simple

Switch up the sentiment and this could easily be a card for several different occasions like a Birthday or a Thank You note.

That's it for today.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend!!

Darling Baby

A quick post for today and then I need to run - just sharing a delicate and sweet little baby announcement card, all dressed up in very light pink and green colors:

Where has this year gone? I seriously can't believe we are in August and school will resume in 3 weeks! I can't believe I will have a 4th Grader! Yikes! I'm not ready quite yet for this year to be over!  Hope you are all having a fab day! See you all later in Social Media land! ;))

What would summer be without a fun-filled water layout? Haven't posted this one yet.  This layout was made when Chris was much younger, we giggle all the time about his younger hairstyle as we weren't quite sure as parents what we were doing with his hair....at.....all.  Many times, it was a mystery to us....lol.

H20 LO

Back then,  he didn't know how to swim yet, so a good soak with a water hose and sprinkler made him sufficiently happy.  Once again, my go to size of 8 x 11, clean and simple lines but with lots of colorful elements. You can't go wrong with super bright mixed papers from Echo Park along with their cutouts and letter stickers.

Hope you all have a fabulous week!!

Take care.
