Birthday Traditions

Hello creators! I am back with a birthday layout I created using the Sugarplum Designer Paper Pack, Designer Stickers, Variety Mat Pack, and Embellishments. Every year, no matter how old I get, my mommy makes me a birthday cake. Sometimes, we don’t get to celebrate my birthday with the family until the end of September, but that’s OK! I don’t know many people who would decline two birthday celebrations in one year. Do you? :)

Since Edward was a year old, he’s been helping me blow my birthday candles out. Mom has taken a picture of the two of us blowing out my birthday candles together for the past 7 years. I love this tradition… This year, Edward was really excited because he helped make the cake and he requested Oreos and pink sprinkles to decorate the cake with exactly 39 miniature Oreos.

Comfort on the Countryside–The Pumpkin Patch

Hi, everybody! Nicole here, with a layout I created using the Pumpkin Chain Border Maker Cartridge and the Country Comfort collection. I love fall and this collection is perfect for scrapbooking those fall memories!  The bold colors are so pretty and I the vellum paper is gorgeous! If you’re looking for a way to soften up your projects, vellum papers will do the trick!

Edward is at that age now where he thinks he is too big to go to the pumpkin patch… So, I decided to go through some photos from 2014 to scrap. I found a few of my favorite photos from when we visited Papa John’s Farm. He had such a great time searching for the right pumpkin!

Toil & Trouble–MEOW!

Hello friends! When I first saw the Toil & Trouble collection, I smiled because it is too cute for words! And the patterns are so versatile. You can create Halloween, Kitty, or any other everyday layout using this collection!

I will admit, I immediately thought about using this collection to scrapbook my cats, not Halloween. That “meow” washi tape and adorable kitty cat stickers were just calling my name. I couldn’t help it. Let’s not even go into the fact that it has teal and black and white polka dots and triangles… Literally, I could go into all kinds of favorites with this collection.

Making Plans

Hi, everyone. I have been making plans for September using the Bookworm Stickers and Embellishments. It’s hard to believe that school starts in just a few weeks and I am starting to stress, just a little… My nights are about to get even crazier, not that isn’t already crazy. As I am typing this post, I am wondering if I’ll have any time to scrap in the fall with homework, soccer games, and school events. I guess I’ll enjoy it while it last.

The stickers in this collection are adorable so naturally, for my planner, I used several stickers with a few die cuts. I used my Black Dual-Tip Pen to record my plans for the month of September.

Pens & Pouch

Hi everyone. I must admit, I have a thing for little pouches and when I first saw this cute little pouch, I knew I had to have it. And I did not want it for the pens. I wanted it for the pouch since my favorite color is blue.

Don’t get me wrong, I can find many usages for this pretty rainbow color marker set. There are a few ways these pens will come in handy. Here are a few ideas that come to mind. I could:

Friends Forever

Hi everybody. A week ago, I finally got the chance to meet up with my Best Friend Mischelle for dinner and a movie. We’ve been friends for over twenty years! I met Mischelle when I was a senior in high school. She’s 10 years older than me, but the age difference never mattered… as you can see. Twenty years later we still make fun of each other and laugh at ourselves. We often say, what happen to us? We are getting old!

I love the photo of us together. We barely had any make-up on, but we didn’t let that bother us. We always take photos when we are together. It’s all about the moment.

This Way To The Beach

Hello everybody! Summer is starting to wind down a bit in my household. We have been spending less time at the beach and more time gathering things needed for the new school year, new clothes, shoes etc. Soon, soccer practice will begin and nights fighting with Edward to do his homework at the kitchen table will surely drive me a little crazy, but I am looking forward to it!

Last week, I managed to pull Edward off his computer so we could spend the day at the beach. It was during the week which was great because it was just the two of us. The weather was perfect and Edward was perfectly content and relaxed, playing in the sand. I love watching him enjoy the simpler things in life. I try to take lots of photos to savor the moments I love best.

My Little Artist

Hello everybody! I am back with a layout I created using the Bookworm Designer Papers, embellishments and stickers. What a cute collection to scrapbook those school memories!

Every time my son comes home from school with a fun art project, I get excited. I love looking through his artwork and the one thing I can always count on while looking at his work, is that his little creatures are ALWAYS happy. This makes my heart happy. It just goes to show that he’s happy inside and out most days. And he’s so creative too.

I love that he enjoys simple things such as painting, drawing and coloring. He will spend hours at the kitchen table, making pictures for his classmates. He is thoughtful like that.

Doodling on Your Scrapbooking Layouts

Hello everybody! Today, I am sharing a layout using the Royal Blue and Cranberry Mix & Match Designer Paper and Flower Embellishments. I know that the 4th of July has come and gone, but I love this photo too much to not scrap it.

The morning of the 4th of July, Edward and I arrived to my sister Jamie’s house to help her set up since she was hosting the 4th of July party. Naturally, she and I took a selfie as we poured ourselves a glass of Mimosa.

My sister texts Jamie after she see’s the selfie and was like, “what is she wearing!” (that would be me). We bought the same shirt at Target to wear and it totally wasn’t planned. She showed up an hour later with a different version of my shirt. Well, our shirt. LOL, she took a pair of scissors to make herself a v-neck and trimmed the edges of her sleeves. I am not sure why she just didn’t cut the shirt in half across the middle while she was at it, but we had a good laugh!
