Happy Easter

The Easter Bunny came early to our house this year...and now my children are full of sugar:-) My hubby works on Easter Sunday but didn't want to miss out on the easter egg collecting fun so we asked the Easter bunny to come a day early!

This layout really has nothing to do with Easter even though it is all about a Bunny. This special bunny is actually an "i don't pee my pants anymore" present for my youngest...LOL. We went to Build a Bear and did the whole kiss the heart thing...she was in LOVE with this stuffy and it quickly became "the" stuffy that she needed EVERYWHERE....even the movie theatres...where we lost it. She was devastated! I can't imagine as a parent, watching her go through worse heartache..this was horrible enough!!! So....back we went to build a bear and found the SAME bunny and made it again! Problem solved.

I used mostly the Posh collection from Teresa Collins on this layout. The April TC newsletter is ready...check it out HERE and be sure to sign up to receive the newsletter by email!!!!

Sports Edition II

Good morning! Today I have a few projects to share using Teresa Collins Sports Edition II collection.

The first page features me a couple of years ago, when I did my first half marathon. I kept my "bib" from the race and used it on my page. I trained with a friend and then had my sister (who is a avid marathoner) run the race with me to pace me!

Next page, is my friend's little guy...he is such a cutie! I love how this paper doesn't necessarily have to be used for a "sports" theme.

And lastly, I did a card with this paper too.

Have a SUPER day!

You light up my life

Another layout today to share with you using the 12x12 Notations collection from Teresa Collins. I saw this beautiful chandelier paper and it made me think of the title "you light up my life" which my girls certainly do:-)

I did some light misting on this page to bring in a touch of pink and made the cute flower out of the music paper. If you would like to see a tutorial on how to make this flower, I did one for the Art Freckles blog HERE.

Happy Friday!!

April Kit from Art Freckles

Check out Art Freckles April Kit! Isn't it fantastic? You can pick one up HERE!!!

My first layout is from last summer's holiday at the lake. My girls happily spend everyday, ALL day at the beach:-) Looking forward to doing that again this summer! I had fun rolling paper to make my sun!

Next up...sweet laughter. I love that girls laugh. Had fun with the mist and playing with circles:-)

Lastly (for now) is "they call me mama". I don't know why my girls started calling me mama but I sure love it:-) I had fun playing with my new cricut for this one! It sure makes cutting out hearts a breeze! In the times of BC (before cricut - which really was only a couple of days ago...LOL) I would happily spend hours tracing and cutting out each heart! Well I can NEVER go back now! LOVE my cricut!!!

Timeless projects

Today is my day over at the Teresa Collin's Design Team Blog for a little getting to know me interview:-) You can check it out HERE. Several of my layouts were featured. The first one is on my wedding day (please ignore the tan lines...I did not prepare very well for a strapless dress...hee hee). It was such a beautiful day!

With a similar design, I decorated inside of a frame I had and have it on display -- Teresa's products are SO beautiful, I love looking at them on display:-)

Next up is my youngest, "my baby". She is growing up too fast and I was taking a trip down memory lane the other day (she was such a delightful baby) and decided to do a then and now layout for fun. Oh how I miss babies....LOVE babies. But sadly we are done:-( My mind is totally ok with being done but my ovaries are trying to tell me something else...HA! I need someone close to me to have a baby I can cuddle...sigh.

All of these projects are from the Timeless Collection -- you can check out the entire collection HERE.

Layouts with Notations

As soon as I received my 12x12 Notations papers, I tore into them. The papers are so beautiful and so versatile. Swing by Teresa Collins Blog and see the huge variety of layouts from the design is AMAZING!!

Here are the two layouts I whipped up in between ER visits for my daughter who broke her foot. Poor kid...this is her second break in her life...I've NEVER broken a bone (knock on wood). I think I need to give her calcium supplements to increase her bone strength?? It is not that she is a rough and wild kid or anything either. She is quite cautious! I feel so bad that is it FINALLY spring here...butterflies are out, birds are coming back...and she can't ride her bike or jump in the puddles:-( could have been worse...and her cast will be off in two weeks....not long at all!

Hope you are enjoying your weekend! I am spending half my weekend at a scrapbook retreat...SO FUN!!!
