Noel Mignon's Sweet Sue Kit

Guess what arrived at my doorstep the other day? Yep you guessed it. The newest kit by Noel Mignon, Sweet Sue. I think this would have to be my favorite kit so far! I love all of Noel's kit but this one...oh so yummy! Check out all the goodies you get!

And here is a layout I made with the kit. I just couldn't wait to play with it! I have many more layouts planned with this kit too.

There are only 13 kits left so hurry and buy yours before they are all sold out! You can purchase the kit here.

Until later!

GCD Sprinkles and Polka Dots

This month's inspiration piece was all about polka dots! Leave it to me to inspired by sweet treats all thanks to that big sweet tooth of mine! The first thing that came to my mind when I saw the inspiration photo was one of my favorite desserts called Tuxedo Brownies. I just had to whip up a batch, take a picture of it and scrap about it. Any excuse to make sweets is just fine by me. Without further ado, here is my tasty layout.

Until later!

GCD Altered Journal Tags

Sometimes when I create a layout, I forget to leave a space for my journaling. This is usually the time when I will reach for a journaling tag and use it to write a few words to retell the story of my pictures. For my layout, I used a combination of the Melody Ross Homespun Recipe Cards and the Melody Ross Homespun Inspiration Cards. You can see the two I chose in the picture below.

The pink border around the recipe card clashed with my layout so I cut off the pink portion and then placed the recipe card over the inspiration card. Here is a preview of the finished product before I placed it on my layout.

There are many combinations of the recipe and inspiration cards you can use to create your own unique journaling tags.

Happy creating everyone!

We toured all the different booths and did a few make and takes. I can't express how much I loved every minute of CHA! We even took an afternoon to explore Navy Pier and a little bit of downtown Chicago. I wish we would of spent more time down there. Would of loved to have seen more. Maybe next time.
