You are PERFECT to me

Today was my turn over at the Teresa Collin's Design Team Blog.  Here is what I shared:

In my world lately, we are dealing with my sweet girl's frustrations when she is not immediately successful at something she is new to.  She is a bit of a "perfectionist" and I am trying to get her to understand that "perfection" is not the goal.  I want her to know that she should feel safe to try new things and know that with hard work and practice she can do anything!  I want her to know that she is not "perfect" but that she will always be "perfect" to me!

Now I typically have a very clean style but I wanted for the theme of this page to show some "imperfection" if you will.  So I cut out a flower from the Spring Fling collection and I crumpled it up into a ball. And that felt good.  But I didn't stop there.  Nope..I got out my sandpaper and I scratched it all up.   There.  Perfectly imperfect.

Now if you are reading this tonight (Thursday) head over to Teresa's blog HERE to enter to win some GREAT prizes!

Puppy Love

I had so much fun playing with this month's sketch from My Creative Sketches and if you want to join in the fun...head over to the blog HERE to upload your take on this fabulous sketch for a chance to win an awesome prize!!!!

I used the Everyday Moments collection from Teresa Collins and added in a punch of Spring Fling as well.  I love how versatile these collections are!

My sweet girl fell in love with this dog when we went with a friend to go pick out a new puppy for her.  This is the dog she picked out but my girls felt so sad that they couldn't bring one home to!  But before you feel too sad for them...they already have two dogs to love at home!  :-)

Happy first day of SPRING!!!!

Follow your heart - CARDS

I am definitely one who follows her heart and lets it lead the way in my life.  There are plenty of situations where it would have been nice if my brain would have joined in the decision making process but overall my heart has led me to happiness!

This card is published in the March 2012 CARDS magazine and it features the fabulous Teresa Collins World Traveller collection.

I hope you are enjoying your weekend and that it is a scrappy one!

With You

I had the pleasure of lifting a layout from the talented Carol Monson who is Webster's Pages Guest Designer this month.  Her work is fantastic and inspired me and the other members of the DT...check out the post HERE.

I was playing around with my daughter this past weekend, taking pictures with my timer.  I never imagined I would get that precious look on her face when I gave her a kiss.  What a sweetheart!  There is definitely no place I would rather be than with my kids.  Today we had a blizzard and the highways were awful so I didn't make it to was wonderful to have a little extra time with my kids when they got home from school:-)
