Fly High

I am back after a much needed break! I hope to start posting regularly again soon. I have been busy with family life and work. Now that school is back on, things are a little hectic but we have a schedule down now.

Have you seen the new Webster's Pages collections? Oh my gosh! They are sooooo cute! The first collection I created with was the new Nest collection. It was perfect for a first day of school layout.

I can't wait to create more layouts with the other new collections. Be sure to keep on eye on the Webster's Pages Facebook page. They are revealing even more collections this week!

Happy creating!

It's Almost All Hallow's Eve Time!

Our household is gearing up for Halloween. The girls have been counting down the days ever since they got their costumes. This year we have a bat girl and Clawdeen from Monster High. Rain has been forecast for Halloween and we are hoping that it stays away just long enough for us to have a little trick or treating fun.

If you have been wondering why I have been so quiet lately, I have been frantically studying for my information security certification exam next month. I documented about it on my newest layout for Fancy Pants Designs. Here is a little sneak of my layout. You can see it in it's entirety as well as receive a little insight into how I created it here.


Until next time!

CardMaker Blog Hop

Welcome to the CardMaker Blog Hop! If you just arrived at my blog and would like to start from the beginning, then stop by here.

I created this quick little card with the new Family Traditions collection from Webster's Pages.

This collection is so versatile and can be used for fall or everyday items. What is your favorite of this collection so far? The colors, the ribbon, the embellishments?  My favorite are the little resin leaves!

Thanks for stopping by and make sure to leave a comment on each blog in order to get a chance to win the Family Traditions collection from Webster's Pages!

Next in line on the blog hop is the wonderful Tanya Batrak!

Planning Ahead

Every year I have the best intentions to make Christmas cards to send out to friends and family. In today's electronic age, I still enjoy sending and receiving Christmas cards via the postal mail. You just can't beat holding a card in your hand. Of course, every year time escapes me and I either send out store bought cards or none at all. Not this year. This year I shall send out homemade cards!

Speaking of which, I have two cards to show you today. These were created with the new Merry Little Christmas collection from Fancy Pants.

Now that I have two cards down, I have...oh...several dozen more to make. I will share them with you as I work on them. Until then....

Happy creating!

Happy Friday the 13th!

Happy Friday the 13th everyone! Today is a day that most people freak out about superstitions. I, myself, actually love this day. It always has been a fun day for me where I would watch a scary movie in the evening. I especially love it when it falls in October. It really adds to the Halloween vib. This year it falls in September which is ok with me.

On to some scrappy stuffs...

With the fall weather brings the close of the hot summer temperatures. This year we were blessed to not have a crazy hot summer. It was just the right mix of hot. To document our summer, I created a fun layout with the mini file folders and cards from the Postcards from Paris II collection by Webster's Pages.

I have several more summer layouts I hope to create before the cold weather hits! Although I am not complaining. I enjoy the cooler temps. It's a great excuse to snuggle!

Everyday Routines

The alarm rings and the house fills with the sounds of a new day. The smell of pancakes and coffee fills the air. Kids run around getting dressed, brushing teeth, and grabbing their backpacks as we make our way out the door. School. Work. Dance class. Girl Scouts. Homework. Bath time. Bed. This is pretty much our daily routine with a little bit of fun mixed in for good measure.

I like to document our everyday. I love seeing how things change from month to month or year to year. Here is what our routine looked like in the beginning of this year. I used the fun Recorded collection by Allison Kreft for Webster's Pages.

How do you document your everyday? Do you do Project Life or layouts? I would love to hear!
