A New Adventure!! My Creative Scrapbook!!

Happy Sunday to all! I have some wonderful news that I finally get to share....I have been invited to be on the Design Team for My Creative Scrapbook kit club!!!

I have long admired this kit club and I cannot express how thrilled I am to get to create layouts with their gorgeous kits each month.

This layout was created specifically for the call....Sparkle & Shine. The Simple Stories Posh collection was perfect to document these pictures of my daughter I'd been long holding onto. She was all dolled up and ready to go on her daddy/daughter date. I have pictures of the two of them heading out together but that layout will have to wait a few more weeks because they are scrapped using the March kit. ;)

Alright....that's all I have for today. I'm going to go do my happy dance again for the 10th time! 🙌🙌🙌

Happy New Year 2017!

It's crazy to me when I realize it's the year 2017! Where has the time gone? I have let 2 years go by with not a single blog post but it's not all by accident. I have given myself some time to get my life back on track after a huge change in my life....a little breathing room if you will. My husband was promoted at work and that meant a change in location and more work hours on his part. It's been a bumpy road the past 3 years and it still hasn't smoothed out completely but we're working on it.

So that change in location was from Charlotte, NC to Raleigh, NC. I am loving it here! It's a beautiful city and I still have much more to explore.

This layout is from the first part of said transition - the leaving Charlotte and the only home 2 of the 3 kids had ever known. So you can imagine how difficult it was for them and actually all of us to say goodbye to it. So we gave it hugs and said our last farewells.

I used the January Creative Scrappers sketch but flipped it on it's side to accommodate my pictures. Fun sketch to use!

Doodlebug Hand Sanitizer gift boxes

Hi Doodlebug friends! Are you all ready for Christmas yet? I sure am!! I got a jump on making some little hand sanitizer gift boxes for my sweet girl to give to a couple of her friends. I found this hand sanitizer flip box cut file on Silhouette Studio but used all of my wonderful Santa Express papers and embellishments to dress them up. 

This first one is more girly and it's my fav! May have to keep this one for myself! 

Here's a peek inside when it is opened up. The cut file opening is too big for Bath and Body Works' hand sanitizer bottles but a regular bottle from Target or Walmart is a perfect size.

Thanks for stopping by today and be sure to pick up Santa Express and get to creating those special gifts......they are sure to be a hit with friends and family!

Doodlebug Thankful 4 my Thanksgiving sous chef layout

Hi Doodlebug friends and welcome back for another day of seeing how gorgeous the Friendly Forest and Happy Camper collections work together! My layout documents a special moment that took place in our home last Thanksgiving....my sweet girl wanted to help me cook our family Thanksgiving meal. It warms this momma's heart every time I think about it!

I LOVE the colors in both of these collections and as soon as I saw that beautiful shade of purple I immediately thought of these pictures with my sweet girl in her purple and blue pajamas helping me cook. I had to have a turkey and love how he turned out using the 6x6 pages. The eyes are Beetleblack mini jewels and the nose is from the Bumblebee Arrow Sprinkles package.

Another eye catching title using a couple of the different Doodlebug alphas!

I needed some more embellishments to dress up my layout so I pulled out all of the stickers and Sprinkles from both of the collections and can I just say "WOW!"

Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you enjoyed another example of just how gorgeous both of these lines work together!

Doodlebug Warm Hugs

Hello friends! I'm here today with a Doodlebug layout that I'm so excited about. My family and I recently went on a Disney cruise and were thrilled when we found out that Elsa and Anna were on board! Well, maybe not the boys but my sweet girl and I were! I was even more excited when I realized the colors of this collection matched my photos perfectly!

Have you all checked out the new Chippers? They are so easy to use and a perfect addition to all of the Doodlebug alphas! I just love to use all of the different sizes of alphas to make a unique looking title.

The new glitter Sprinkles are so cute and adds so much to any project! I love the look of them!! And check out the "frozen" tab.....perfect for my layout!

Aside from all of the gorgeous pattern papers in this collection I LOVE all of the glitter.....glitter on the papers, glitter in the Sprinkles, and glitter on these adorable little snow covered trees!

Winter Wishes coffee cup shaped card

While I still had all of my Frosty Friends laying on my desk I noticed an adorable little coffee cup on the sticker sheet and thus this card was created. I love to make shaped cards almost as much as I love coffee. I used the fun and festive striped paper for my cup and added some ribbon and the snowflake sticker to jazz it up. Add a few sprinkles on top of the whip cream and you're good to go!

Thanks for stopping today! I know you have been lovin' all of inspiration the Doodlebug girls have been showing! This collection is gorgeous and fun to use! Be sure to get yours for all your wintery projects!
