**Scrapbook Circle - March Layouts**

thought I'd stop by for a quick hey after not blogging for a while...

I'm sharing all of my March projects I did for Scrapbook Circle in one post...
here they are:

and just for fun...
I did a few extra projects using the rest of my March kit
(it was so full and fabulous!)


I also used A Flair For  Buttons flair, some of my own stash
and had a LOT of fun trying the new watercolor technique - even
if it's NOT as perfect as the ones I've seen.
I don't care - I love it.

Thanks all, back soon.

**Hey Love!**

Hi guys!

I think I need to set a reminder. 
A blog reminder. 
I mean in my defense I always remember in the middle of the night 
when I'm all nestled and snug in my bed & my iPad is out of juice - then 
The next day happens & just like that - I forget .

So here I sit in our favorite coffee shop (if you're in the DFW area - get to Roots!
They're the remembering to blog & having lots of juice in my iPD mini ----

Sharing a layout I did for Scrapbook Circle using the March Portobello kit
And both add ons. I'm not sure how to add a link with this app I'm using 
So I'll share the site:

These are photos we took of each other while at Roots -

And there you have it - my post for today. I'm framing this one for my living room photo wall!

Thanks for stopping by today!

*Got Swag?*

hey y'all!

stopping by for a quick Saturday afternoon post - just want to share
a couple of layouts I've done...just for ME!

I have decided to start getting the Swag Bags over at Paper Issues.
You would LOVE these little bags! They're FULL of fun goodies.
Just what I needed to get over a little scrap slump I was in - bam, I cranked out
2 layouts just for me, just for fun.

I want to share them with you today!

First up is a layout about my cute husband - using the February Swag Bag:

here's some closer shots:

and next, here's my precious niece (great niece) Presley doing her
cute little scrunchy 3 year old face - using the March Swag Bag:

here's some closer shots:

this past week so I decided to give IT a vaca....
but I'm back now, rip roaring and ready to go!

just for fun...
here's a couple of sneaks of my Scrapbook Circle layouts
that are coming soon!

see y'all...Monday!

*Yes Please - Blogging from my phone*

I'm enjoying a cup of coffee
as I sit & relax for a few spare minutes.
As I sit here I!
So instead of interrupting my 
few minutes of solitude,
I use this great thing we have 
ie: my cell.

I was walking through my scrap room
yesterday & happened to look at what was 
on my desk. My new Feb. Kit from Elle's Studio arrived & I was itchin' to use it! 
It totally called my name.
So I sat down and 30 minutes later - this happened:

I took these photos & edited from my cell so if
The colors are off - so sorry.  :)

Here's a few closer detail shots:

I love this Feb. Kit from Elle. I used tags from the kit, as well as the wooden pieces (hearts, love), flair from Martha Bonneau (her Etsy is Panda Eight Designs), washi my sweet friend Patricia Roebuck sent me by Freckled Fawn & wooden stars by Studio Calico , woodgrain cardstock that I got from Paper Issues.

that's it for me today!
I'm getting some boxes made to get ready to sell & will update soon with photos & all the info on what's inside each box.

Have a great day!!

*Love US! - A Save The Date layout*

happy (taco) Tuesday!
I hope your week is going good so far.
Mine sure is! Did y'all see that amazing win by our
US skating dance team last night? WOW!

I'm quite random...sorry about that! I know you didn't come
here for an Olympics update, but to see what I told you I'd be
updating about today...a Teresa Collins layout I did using the
new line:  Save The Date!

Here you go - here it is!
This layout was made for CHA Winter 2014 - Teresa's incredible booth:

here's some closer shots:

Over at the TC Design Team blog I have my supplies and
a little instruction on how I put this simple layout together.

Now tell me - isn't that line GORGEOUS! I love the crisp, clean,
bright yet bold palette with all the details. So me!
I'm very blessed to be on this amazing design team & getting to play
with Teresa's incredible creations!

speaking of "Love Us.." you have to see this picture
of what my guy surprised me with for Valentine's Day.
No, it wasn't a giant diamond...but something simple he
heard me saying I'd LOVE to have one day...
(and here I thought he didn't listen to me sometimes...ha!)

I felt so loved & spoiled. Topped the night off with delicious sushi
in a new place we found. Perfect!

Hope you have a great day...
I'll be back soon!
