Happy News!

A few weeks while ago I tried out for a design team. It is always so nerve wracking to put together your application and then hit the "send" button. After that you keep your fingers crossed and hope for the best. I am please to announce that I am a new member of the Scrapbooking from the Inside Out design team! You can see the announcement here. I love how the kits focus on your inner thoughts and feelings. Something I have not really scrapbooked enough.

Speaking of feelings, Jaina seems to be having a lot of them lately but not in a very good way. I have learned from Aryanna that, when it comes to kids, age 2 is not the hardest one of all. It's age 3. With it comes lots of temper tantrums and hissy fits as they learn assert their independence and learn their boundaries. I happened to catch a picture during one of her hissy fits. I used Webster's Pages new Girl Land collection for this layout.

Sneaky Peek

Over here we are having a lazy weekend so far. We were gone for a few days on vacation. I still think the girls and I are still on vacation mode. Lucky for me, it's a 3 day weekend! Woohoo! Even though I have been in a lazy mode, I did play with some new goodies from Webster's Pages. Here is a little sneak for you.


Webster's Pages and Unity will be teaming up all next week for a blog swap. There will be lots of fun inspiration from the two design teams and giveaways! I really encourage you to stop by both blogs starting on Tuesday!

Music to my Ears

One of the joys of my work place is that I get to listen to music. It definitely gets me through those long drag out days that never seem to want to end. I can't express how lucky I am to be able to have this privilege! I had a little fun with my camera phone and took a picture while I was at work. I then edited it in Photoshop, converted it to black and white so that only my ear buds and earrings were in color. I really like how this effect turned out! I used the Palm Beach collection from Webster's Pages which worked perfectly with the color scheme I had in mind.


What special things get you through your day? I'd love to hear them!

Be Inspired!


Webster's Pages and Scrapbook Adhesives have joined forces for this week! I would love it if you came to check out the awesome projects the design team has put together. You can see them here. I am blown away! I have used the adhesive and pop dots from Scrapbook Adhesives for years so it was super fun to be able to participate in the swap! Here is what I created with these items along with their adhesive strips which I used to attach the ribbons to my layout.


Here is a close-up of the flowers I created with one of the Game On papers.
