Jingle all the way -- featuring Authentique :)

Hi everyone :)

I wanted to share a canvas I made for the upcoming Christmas season :)

I found this burlap 2 pack canvasses at Target on clearance (seriously ... TWO 12x12 burlap canvasses for $2.80!) and then I had some vintage ABC blocks, and then I had bought a jingle bell 'wreath' at a yard sale that I cut up just for the bells, and I had some snowflake ornaments I found last year on clearance, and created this :)

I knew with this being burlap and I was adding the heavier ABC blocks and jingle bells, I had to tighten up the burlap canvas :)

So I took some fabric stiffener and painted it on the canvas to make it stiff :)

Then I went through my ABC blocks and found the letters that spelled 'Jingle All the Way' -- and since some of them weren't Christmas colors, I followed Cindy's advice and painted them to the colors I wanted :)

Then I covered the other sides of the ABC blocks with paper from Authentique :)

And here is what I made after all that *wink* :)

Wake Me Up When September Ends -- featuring Echo Park :)

Hi everyone! :)

For those that have followed me for awhile, you know that I take monthly photos with my babies in honor of Aleida Franklin -- and today marks the 8th anniversary of her death :(  

And every year in September, I make a layout showing my the past years photos I take with the kids -- and I wanted to share that layout today :) 

I used Echo Park's "Fall is in the Air" collection on my page :)









Aleida changed my life forever .....
