In March, I created this fun little mini for Couture Cardstock. I used the Silk Road Monochromatic Family and a Maya Road accordion album.
So, I created this album as a reminder to myself. It lists the top 10 things I want to teach my children. Your top 10 might be completely different from mine, but I encourage you to make a list. Remind yourself. What is it that you are doing? What are your goals? Who do you want to be? I hope this album inspires you to record your goals, and work even harder to meet them, whatever they are.

This is the newest thing that my children are doing to drive my crazy. The couch cushions never stay in the same spot for very long. Piling them all up and creating nests is the new favorite thing to do. :)
Thanks for stopping!

I love this photo of my daughter. I love how clearly you can see her reflection. I also like how this layout turned out, although it is a departure for me, since I don't use many pastels. This was made with Couture Cardstock and My Time Made Easy printables. It was on the Couture blogyesterday. TFL!

I just love Couture Cardstock. Have I said that before? ;) Working on this DT has been a challenge for me, since I am a patterned paper lover at heart and before joining the Couture Cardstock DT I rarely used cardstock at all beyond a few backgrounds.
