A New Library!

We love the library!  It’s one of the things we will miss the most when we move overseas.  We recently moved to a new, short term rental for our last 3 months in the USA.  It’s in a new town, thus a new library to explore!  I took these photos on our first visit there.

Fitting for a library page, this layout features a mix of old and new product, mostly from Cosmo Cricket.  Social Club really is a versatile collection with amazing colors.  Love it!

Thanks for taking a peek!

Smile and Nod

Today I have a Crate Paper layout to share- and I couldn’t resist sneaking in a glassine envelope from the Curtsey Boutique too.  I’ve been saving this line for a long time, and as a reward to myself for successfully seeing my family through a move and a 75% reduction in our belongings, I decided it was time to break it out.  This, therefore, is my first project with the On Trend Collection.

Nothing like a big sister “helping” you pose for a photo!  :)  The glassine bag is from the Curtsey Boutique.  Everything else is from Crate Paper (Need color?  Crate Paper is my fave for bright cheery papers).

Thanks for stopping by!

Game Time!

I love a good monochromatic page!  This one was made with the Crate Paper Color Challenge in mind, and it was fun to return to something I haven’t done in a while.  There’s a little bit of blue in nearly every Crate line, and many of them are on this page.  Represented are Party Day, Maggie Holmes, Story Teller, Farmhouse, and probably one other line I am forgetting about.  The photos are Instagram shots of my son and his favorite activity these days: Computer time!




Thanks for the fun challenge, Crate Paper!

Doing “Reshersh”

We recently had a school day that involved some fairly in=depth study of the planets.  My kids requested the topic, and then spent nearly 3 hours watching videos, making paper plate planet models, and, as Elijah called it, “Doing reshersh.”  It was a completely awesome morning in every way.  I love watching my kiddos soak up information.




This is the Dear Lizzy Neapolitan Collection- and it could not have been more perfect for this photo.  A little paint, some mist droplets, and layers.  Sweet!

Thanks for looking!
