{{daddy daughter date}}

*gasp* my first traditional layout of 2017!

Our office is being remodeled (and my stuff is EVERYWHERE) but I was going through withdraw and had to make SOMETHING. My friend Mel gifted me the new Simple Stories "Adore" collection for Christmas and I've been dying to use it.

I used Rochelle's awesome throwback sketch:

I switched up the banner pieces because I thought that border strip went perfectly with Brenda's "I will always love you" song challenge.

These photos are so precious to me; so glad to have the story told on a layout!
Thanks for stopping by :)

Happy Thanksgiving vacation to me! I couldn't wait to get in my scraproom and play with  Ali Edward's Drive story kit. It was perfect for these pics of my brother's 21st birthday, when my husband rented a mustang for their road trip. Isn't that "drive" acrylic awesome?

I used Brenda's sketch, adjusting it a bit with my 4 instagram pics.

I also used Rochelle's cork or wood challenge - I used a man wood veneer.

Thanks for stopping by today! Enjoy your turkey day! :)

{{Halloween Nights}}

Good Saturday morning!

I was so happy to dust off my cricut when I saw the pumpkin challenge at Fantabulous Cricut - it has been neglected lately and fall is my favorite season. Good excuse to make some time to play with paper!

I cut this adorable pumpkin family (and the spider!) from the Doodlecharms cartridge. Doodlebug paper is the perfect match for these fun images (even more fun with googly eyes!).

This is my little family last year on Halloween. A rare candid picture (not a selfie!) of the 3 of us had to get its own layout. I also dusted off my Martha Stewart punch around the page spider web set for a fun frame.

Have a great weekend!!

Hunting, Fishing, {{LOVING}} Everyday!

If you're a country music fan, you know this one:

And it was our summer anthem :) I knew it had to be the title of my daughter's first time fishing.

I know I'm partial.. but isn't she just the cutest?! I used the sketch at Elle's Studio 


and their adorable "Little Moments" collection.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! TGIF! Have a good weekend.

{Sea Sun Sail}

Wahoo for 3 day weekends!  I hope to finish my January-June 016 album and that means part 1 of our Cape May sunset dolphin cruise - featuring a favorite cousins photo. My girl is the little one ;)

I used the fun sketch at Stuck Sketches!
and my new Echo Park Mermaids collection.

Enjoy your Saturday!

{{ Dream Big My Little Ball Cap Cutie }}

For the past 3 summers, my hubby has been trying to get our daughter in a ball cap. This year - he finally succeeded! She picked out this cute, pink whale hat at the beach and wore it all week. It helped that it was HOT, that her hair is long enough for a pony tail thread through the hole AND her cousins all had hats too. Man, did she look CUTE! and a lot older too :(

I used Simple Stories So Fancy (one of my FAVORITES) and this sketch at Brenda's blog:

I also used washi tape for Rochelle's challenge.

Have a great weekend!

{{ Sit Stay Heal }} Take Two

Unfortunately I needed 2 get well cards today, so this is my second take with the same cute set. I used the color challenge with MFT Card Challenges

I made a 5x5 square card since is is going into a care package for my friend who is having surgery. Other plans are keeping me from visiting until next week, but wanted to let her know I was thinking of her - and you know send her a good book and some chocolate ;)

I used My Favorite Things You Have My Heart set, along with the Decorative Doily die.  I was really challenged by the blues and grays - but I think it turned out really pretty! :)

Have a great week!
