Lovely, Beautiful

Hi all!! :) Hope today is treating you well so far!! I wanted to hop on today and share a layout that went up on The Paper Bakery blog today! This layout was made using almost exclusively the August add on kit, "County Fair"!

We are in the midst of a remodel at my house, a very extensive remodel, so I have been unable to print off any new pictures, so while I was searching for some around here that I had yet to scrap, I came across my daughter’s preschool school picture from last fall. I usually have a very hard time scrapping school photos, but this time, the minute I saw it, my mind went to the “Lovely” sticker on the sticker sheet included in your add on kit for this month. I thought a lot of the colors and patterns in the papers lent themselves well to the fall theme they had for their photos. So surprisingly, for me, this layout came together very quickly, using almost exclusively items included in the kit.

I want to apologize for the not so great photo quality, these were taken with my iPhone, since another thing that I can’t find in the midst of this remodel is my camera battery charger.

Absolutely love the gorgeous colors and accents included in this kit!! I will have more projects to share soon!! :)
Hope you all have a blessed day, and take time to create something you love!

Reveal and a Layout

Hi all!! Long time, again! I swear, life just stays so busy anymore! I feel like I am always on the go! I have no idea how we are going to do it when the 3rd little one gets here! Yikes!! I am open to any suggestions!! lol!

Today is the 15th, which means its reveal day over at The Paper Bakery!! You can go here to view the kits available this month. Then up on the blog I have a fun little post sharing my favorite kit items from the add on kit! :)

I also have a layout to share with you all today! I actually made this layout a little while back, and realized I hadn't shared it on the blog. I don't know why, I'd have to say its one of my all time favorite layouts!

I used the Simple Stories "Fabulous" line exclusively on this layout, only throwing in a few extras, such as twine and washi tape. I liked using the grid design on this layout. It was an easy way to include lots of embellishment without overwhelming the layout, and myself! lol. Lately my scrap time is very limited, so a design like this helps it to all come together a little easier! :)

I'll be back next week to share some of my projects made using the Country Picnic add on kit from The Paper Bakery. Until then, have a great day, and take time to create something you love!!

I am back to posting, at least I hope!! I tell you, life has been crazy, between getting two kiddos ready to start school, the activities they are already in, getting ready for the little guy, and a house remodel on top of that, I feel like I barely have time to breathe! I am ready for this summer to be over!! lol.

I am up today over at The Paper Bakery blog sharing a few projects.

These were the last of my projects made with the July add-on kit, which was fabulous, as always. Can't wait to see what Sarah has in store for us with the August kit!!

Hope to be on here more often, with both Paper Bakery Projects and just for fun projects! Hope you all are getting in lots of crafty time..send some of the and the mojo my way!! lol

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