Jody and I are gearing up for another spring show in a couple of weeks! Come join us and see all the fun things we create. This is just a sample of some of the goodies you'll find.

Don't Call Me PRINCESS

Ok, had to add one last page from my K&CO Urban Rhapsody this paper! Z - you're too cute as well!


More K&C0 urban Rhapsody...did I mention earlier that this too is available at Michaels of all places, crazy! I love it! I also love the diaper about CRAZY!


More Urban Rhapsody by K&CO - this stuff is just so fun. I was having a blast mixing colors...pulling some bright turquoise alongside artichoke colored paper. Zachary & Jacob - we really miss you!!!

This too is some of my favorite paper!!!! Love it love it love it! K&Co's Urban Rhapsody is so's got this real nostalgic feel to it...lots of cool sayings, symbols and great muted colors that work well no matter what color palette you feel like mixing it with! I've used some chipboard 3D elements as well as some Stampin' Up! mini library clips...I love those things, seriously, they are so great! (But their gone for now...they used to be in the holiday mini)

Life's Treasures

I love it when I can create a page in no this one. I had some extra tags that I had made just waiting to be used and buttons that I bought a million years ago. My husband and I were both downstairs at the dining room when this page unfolded and it took like 2 minutes tops...seriously and it shows...nothing flashy, just a quick page to remember the moment. Don't get all caught up in your underwear about how perfect your pages should be...just getem done! I sure did and my husband was cracking up over it. I bought this patterned paper at HIP 2B SQUARE and can't for the life of me remember who makes it...I think it's Scenic Route, but then again maybe it was Crate Paper, either way, I'm loving this paper. There is something about rust/orange and olive green that I just can't get enough of!


This was one of my favorite finds at the CKU convention in Portland recently. The designer paper and punch outs are by Daisy D's and I have no idea the actual name, but it was a super cute pack! I actually made 3 layouts out of this kit and was so highly impressed with myself after the disappointment of only finding that the kit had 1 double sided sheet of paper and a sheet of punchouts.

Good Times

I'm realizing that I have a lot of favorites...including this awesome paper pack by K&CO called Mira. OMG it's gorgeous and colorful and there are all these really super cool swirls and shiny things and and and....I could go on forever...oh, but I almost forgot you can get it at Michaels of all places. This spread was a lot of fun to do. I totally love journaling via my computer even though it's so important to have your own handwriting to cherish too. I have a cute little butterfly on the top right of this page that is actually 3D, but it's hard to tell w/ this me, it's cute...the wings pop right off the page and only the body is attached. I did use Garden Whimsy by Stampin' Up! for the butterfly that's underutilized right now along with many of my stamps. I'll get there.
