Fun In a Tree

We recently visited a ropes course, and I got lots of great shots of my family up in the trees, swinging, jumping, and moving from here to there.  I started this layout with a series of tags from The Curtsey Boutique.  Then I built my page on top of them.  I love the movement and detail of this page.





The divided side of this PL page used 6x6 layouts, and I used another Curtsey Boutique tag on this side too.  I LOVE the chevron embossed tags!

I don’t often take photos of empty hallways, but in this case… the light was perfect, it was quiet, and this photo was calling to me. 




This layout was made with the On Trend Collection from Crate Paper.  A little doodling and misting with a Crafter’s Workshop Template brings it all together.  Thanks for looking!

She’s Turning 8!

I have mixed feelings about birthday layouts.  I hate themed layouts, but I really want to have special pages of my kids special days.  When I saw this collaboration from Glitz and Echo Park, I was delighted that there was a birthday collection that wasn’t too “little kid” for my 8 year old.  I love how this page turned out too!




The masks are from Crafter’s Workshop, and the mists are from Tattered Angels. Thanks for taking a peek.


Gracefully Aging

There is one beautiful old building in Sofia that I especially love.  It’s had a recent facelift, and it is more striking then ever.  There is something so very timeless about it.  I used Glitz papers to create this fun layered layout.

Sick 3 Days…

Shortly after we moved, Elijah got an double ear infection.  It was a challenge trying to get him to the doctor and navigate an unfamiliar medical system, but we made it, and he recovered after a week on antibiotics. 


Poor kid was pretty miserable.  I was thankful it was not a contagious illness.  Lesson for mom: no swimming right before airline travel!

A Little Nervous

A few months ago, we boarded a plane to move to Europe.  It was my son’s first flight, and for the most part he was filled with bluster and bravado.  There were moments, however, when the inner uncertainty showed through.  This was one of those moments, while we were waiting to check in for our flight. 



That amazing burlap star is from The Curtsey Boutique, the rest of the items are older items form Basic Grey (Wander) and Simple Stories.

Thanks for taking a peek!

Day 1 of 7

I haven’t said a whole lot here on this blog, but our family moved to Eastern Europe over the summer.  In order to get everything processed correctly for our visas, we will be making several trips to Greece.  When all is said and done, we will have spent roughly a week in the beautiful city of Thessaloniki.  This layout uses some of the photos from that amazing first day.




The doily and butterfly are from The Curtsey Boutique, and the rest of the supplies are from my scrap drawer.  TFL!
