I needed some sunshine!!!!

Whoa it's cold out there! The last few days, it's hit down to -47 degrees with the windchill..... crazy considering just 2 weeks ago, it was almost to the melting point! So I decided NO winter layouts this week... I wanted to do something fun and summery and warm. LOL!

I brought out some LYB Fresh Print Clothesline, such fun and bright colors... perfect for summer pics!! Mixed in some OA ribbon and little flyers from the Sidewalks line as well...... and a couple of other odds and ends ;)

Wherever you are, I hope you are staying warm!!!!

More Farmhouse!

Here are a few more things that I got done using the October Afternoon 'Farmhouse' line! Loved putting it all together, the colors are nice and subtle, not too flashy at all ;)

I hope everyone has a great weekend!!

Farmhouse by October Afternoon!!

Ok, now normally... a line like this might seem too out of the norm for me. But, something about it called to me. No, it SCREAMED to me. Take me, use me, distress me and create with me!!!!

So I did.

(click on pictures to see them larger)

My oldest daughter, Tayla, bought me this very cute white, plain frame for Christmas. I knew immediately what I wanted to do with it, because I didn't want to put 8 pictures in it, even though that is what it was made for.

I took 4 of the slots for pictures, and with the other 4, I did them all up fancy like with papers and embellies and alphas.... and, well, I am totally in love with this frame.

Everything on this frame is from October Afternoons 'Farmhouse' line, aside from Jillibean Soup Corrugated Alphas, some Stampin' Up mini clothespins, and some extra OA mini alphas.

You are going to want the WHOLE ENTIRE LINE. If you have to pick and choose, however, I highly recommend the 'Little Flyers', the 'Flower Sack', and the 'Wrap Pack'. And of course 2 sheets of each paper. LOL!!

You can find the October Afternoon Farmhouse in the LIITD store now. Click right HERE. Fast. Because it's going to sell out I am quite certain. ;)

Here are some more close up shots.... Thanks for looking!!!!!

Can't wait to share what else I have done with this amazing line soon!!!

Challenge Day

The LIITD Creative Team is THRILLED to be back issuing challenges to our members. We took a little break while life was so busy for everyone, and are ready to dive in again. :)

Last week, Norine issued a challenge to use white on white, and her layout is gorgeous... check the challenge out HERE.

My issue for this morning, can be found right HERE. I want you to use your goals for 2012, and on our board we each like choosing our OLW (one little word) for how we want to live that year.... and you can use that on the layout as well. This is the layout that I made for the challenge:

Hope you have some fun giving it a shot! :)

Is school back in yet?

I WISH! LOL! I love my kiddos, and they have been pretty good the last week and a half, the weather has been beautiful for where we live so they have been outside a lot.... I'm just ready to get back to routine. They don't sleep in, so it's a lonnnnng day.... ;)

While Brayden napped today, I thought I'd squeeze in a layout, and once again chose the Sketchy Thursday challenge.... and came up with this layout of my little monkey. He is such a serious looking boy at times, but then BAZINGA, he lights up and does something completely opposite. He makes us laugh... :)

Thanks for checking in!!! :)

Welcome to 2012!

Happy New Year!!!!!

I hope that you all had a fabulous New Years Eve, ringing in 2012 in every way possible.... but most of all, safely!! Me and my man had a great night out with friends, dancing and drinking, and a nice quick walk home in beautiful weather :)

I did a bit of decorating the past few days.... not around the house, but at the scrap table. LIITD has the cutest cupcake boxes in the store. SINGLES or ONE DOZEN are available. I got a few of the singles, and thought I would dress up the boxes a little bit. The singles are perfect to also use as little gift boxes for that present you just don't know how to wrap! I love making pretty cupcakes, so I will definately be making use out of both of the sizes to take to my friends and family!! LIITD always has the cutest, different things in the store!!

Here are a few glimpses of my creations, but you can check out the LIITD blog post today to see them in full!
