One more year...down

This past week I celebrated my 34th birthday. I still can't believe how fast time has gone by! Some days I still think I am 27! Craziness! That is ok though. I may be a little older but I am also a little wiser. My daughter surprised me with this before she left to go to her dad's for the weekend.

For the most part my birthday weekend was quiet and relaxing. I missed my girls but we had ourselves a mini celebration last night. They picked out what cupcake recipe we should make and they helped me make it. Afterwards they decided to sing me Happy Birthday. I love my kiddos!

Speaking of celebrations, I created another layout from Aunt Sabrina's wedding. This picture is one of my favorites. Poor Jaina was so nervous that day and so unsure as to what to do. In the end, she was the perfect little flower girl.

Here is a closeup of the little flower I put together.

Happy Creating!

CHA Sneakage Time

I adore this time of year when you can see all the fun new collections that emerge at CHA. All the companies are starting to show sneaks of their new products and Webster's Pages is no exception. The new collections are just stunning!

First up is Palm Beach. I have had the pleasure to work with this collection. I have some cute plans for the chevron paper that I have yet to really play with. It's one of my favorites along with all the beautiful pinks, beige, teal...oh shucks! I love the whole dang collection!

Next up is a first for Webster's. A nice manly type collection called Game On. Don't let it fool you though, I can think of some fun ways to use this collection for girly type layouts. I can't wait to play with this collection!

Make sure you stop by the Webster's Pages blog all week. There are still a few more awesome sneaks to come! And speaking of sneaks, here is a layout I made with the Everyday Poetry collection. If I am not mistaken, the Webster's Pages blog will be sneaking more of this collection tomorrow.

Happy creating!

An Exciting Announcement!

I finally get to share my exciting news that I have been keeping secret from everyone! I am one of the Webster’s Pages Clean and Simple girls!!! I am so thrilled to be on this team alongside all of these awesome ladies! When I saw the email from Brandin in my inbox, I happened to be on break at work. I opened the email and my heart immediately skipped a beat. I made the team! I squealed with excitement and I am sure I had a smile a mile wide. Make sure to see the announcement here to see which other ladies made the team.

I received my box of goodies with some of the new Webster's Pages collections. They are gorgeous! I can't wait for everyone to see them. I think you will love them as much as I do.

Happy Monday!

A Little Me Time

Every so often I need a little me time. Quiet time to relax and read a good book or get lost in a action movie or to get sucked into a game on the PC. No matter what it is, I really need the time to myself to just relax and let all the worries of the day fall off my shoulders.

One of my New Year's resolutions is to keep track of all the books I read. I go through fits and starts where I read a lot and sometimes I don't pick up a book for months. I thought it would be neat to see what books I have read over the course of a year.

Speaking of books and relaxation, here is a recent layout I created with some Lily Bee goodies.

Happy Creating!

It's Monday!

The weekend is sadly over and it's Monday once again which means school, daycare, and work in my house. I have a busy week ahead but that is ok because that means the weekend will be here before I know it!

My crafting mojo is finally back after it's long Christmas break. I created this layout this weekend and have another one in the works. This was created with the January Nook kit.

Happy a Happy Monday everyone!

Into 2012...

After much contemplation, I have chosen my one little word for 2012...learn. There are so many things I want to learn this year. On the top of my list is to learn how to shoot in manual mode on my camera. That is my big project for this year. I'll be purchasing a new camera this month and I am way happy about that. It will be my first camera where I can actually switch out the lenses! Yes I know. I am a bit behind the curve in the camera department but I am slowly catching up!

Next up, I want to share with you Heidi Sonboul's very first collection for GCD Studios! I am so happy for this girl! She really rocked it! Here is a sneak of her collection...

I am in love with all the chevron and in various colors to boot! If you want to see her collection in it's entirety, check out her blog post here!

I also did a little crafting this weekend after a long break from the holidays.
