Hello Sunday Morning...

Good morning everyone I hope your Sunday is going well. Ours is fine. It is raining with a mixture of snow. We have not had snow since March of this year. Not that I am sad or upset though. It looks pretty when its coming down and it's fresh but it's a different story when you have to drive in it. My tree is still in the box, I bought some ornaments from Target last night in my favorite colors : hot pink, purple, green and turquoise. My tree is white by the way, last year I wanted something different and easy to assemble and disassemble. I remember before that we had this HUGE green tree and you had to put the color coded stems in the proper place. That took FOREVER to assemble and take down. The tree would be up for weeks and weeks after Christmas. Well we don't have that problem anymore because this tree comes pre lit and assembled!

I've been pretty busy this weekend with creating and watching movies. Remember my goal of 31 layouts, well I have completed 8 so far and these 2 are my latest:


Gabby has a habit of ignoring me on purpose when she doesn't want to take pictures so I guess this is what she was going for that day. But she did let me take these 3 but they were not what I was looking for. However I printed them anyway because it does tell a story and I think they are kind of cute :). This process took a few days. The base ppr is Bazzill Avalanche. I used the  "Layered Beads" template (Crafter's Workshop) and used Tattered Angels Strong Pink and True Turquoise along with Shimmerz Chickadee  Stickles in Glam Pink and Liquid Pearls in Daffodil to mist. I matted the photos in BG Out Of Print and American Craft's Soho Garden. The scalloped circles were left over from a previous project. The border is Bazzill Just The Edge III in Pajama. The letter stickers are My Lil Shoebox and the question mark is Thickers Rainboots. 

Sweet, Darling, Spunky

I didn't plan on this being the end product. I wanted a large block going down the middle but it morphed into something different. There's nothing significant about this picture, I remember printing it with a purpose but it sat for so long that I forgot so I just used the words from the backside of the paper for my title and journaling prompt. The base ppr is MME Lavender Hello Greetings, the paper in the middle is Basic Grey Rhubarb, the dots paper is Dear Lizzy 5th and Frolic, the ribbon is American Crafts Caramel. The red paper is Bazzill Berrylicious. The border is Doodlebug Frills in Bubblegum.
