I decided to do a layout featuring America the Beautiful, by Pebbles.  Here are a few close-ups:


My friend Jenn was visiting me & we decided to go to the fair for the Fourth.  It was such a perfect day.  We ate everything in sight, watched monster trucks, saw tons of animals & exhibits.  But I’d have to say, the icing on the cake, was the amazing fireworks at the end of the night!  Absolutely Amazing!!


This line is so stinkin’ CUTE..I fell in love with it the second I saw it!  My page just flew together so easily.  You can never go wrong with Pebbles..they have the cutest lines ever & think of everything!


Aren’t these Thickers the BEST!??!  I decided to flip a couple of them upside down to add interest to the page. 🙂  To finish the layout, I added a few sprinkles of Heidi Swapp Color Shine & some bling.  Here’s a look at my completed layout:

Hi Y’All..back again to share my latest layout with you!  I was so inspired by the Paper Issues Mood Board this month.  Isn’t it just GORGEOUS!?!


I used a lot of Happy Glamper, by Photo Play.  Sandra found this little GEM hidden along the coast, after Laguna Beach, before reaching Anaheim (Yes, we were on our way to the Happiest Place on Earth, Disneyland!).  It is called Crystal Cove State Park & is absolutely breathtaking!!


My niece, Wisdom, helped me come up with the title.  Of course, its from a recent pop song, and was just so genius…no wonder why they named her Wisdom! 🙂


I had a blast painting the wood veneer with my Dylusions Paint by Ranger.  Dyan Reaveley “knocked it out of the park” with this product..absolutely LOVE it!!


I decided to make a pocket behind my layout for some hidden journaling.  I attached a Tye-died seam binding ribbon, so you can easily pull it out & read it!


I think this may be one of my favorite layouts I’ve done in a long time…just love everything about it!!  Here’s my completed page-hope you like it as much as I do?!

Hooray for Popsicles

Hi guys, I’m back, playing along with another Paper Issues Take 5 Challenge!!  I love doing the monthly challenges..they’re so fun & really keep me inspired from week to week.  This time, I decided to scrap a few photos of my nephew Tanner, enjoying one of his Summer favorites..POPSICLES!!! 🙂IMG_0668

These are the 5 I chose: The color blue; alpha letters; patterned paper; a star; and stripes.  Here’s a few more close-ups…


I had recently bought some of the new Elle’s Studio, Sunny Days collection, so of course I couldn’t wait to dive into it for this layout.  I used some of the 3×4 cards for layering…I’m super happy with the way it turned out!


I fell in love with the wood veneer.  I mean, I just couldn’t resit, that adorable Popsicle –  it was absolutely perfect for this page!  Here’s a look at my completed layout:


I hope you will hop over to the Paper Issues Friends & Fans Facebook group & play along too!!  I would LOVE to see what you create! 🙂
