Wake me up when September ends -- featuring Bella Blvd. :)

Hi everyone :) 

Happy September :) 

For those that have followed me for awhile will know that since Aleida Franklin passed away almost 6 years ago - I have taken a monthly photos with my babies :) 
Since we are coming up on the 6th anniversary of her passing, I made a 2-page layout with the past 12 months of my monthly photos with the kids in her honor :)

This is the 3rd year in a row that I have made a layout with all my photos from the past year that are in honor of Aleida :) 

Here is 2012 and 2013 :)
 
I used Bella Blvd.'s Classic Calendars collection on my page :) 
 
 


My title is from Green Day's song "Wake Me Up When September Ends"  -- since Aleida passed away in September 2008, I thought this title was fitting ...

Pencil me in :)

Hi everyone :) 

I wanted to share a little pencil/pen tin I made for a co-worker :) 

She came to me with these AMAZING wrapping papers that she found in her closet!! She thinks they were either from her Mom or her Aunt's Bridal or Wedding shower! :) 


Aren't they AWESOME?!?!?!?!? :)






She asked me to make her a Pencil Holder for her desk ... I asked her which paper she preferred, and she chose the one with the girls on it :) 

So I had a little aluminum tin from Target's dollar spot ...spray painted it a vintage pink color, and started adding some wrapping papers!! :) 


****Ohhhhh and please forgive the bad photos ... I worked on this late into the night after work, and then had to take photos before I went to work in the morning, when the sun wasn't quite fully up :)   ****

 


I added a Prima flower that Helen had sent me  -- and some vintage lace I had around :)

 



I also decorated the inside :)

A healthlier new me -- featuring Basic Grey :)

Hi everyone!! :) 

We are live on the Frosted Designs blog with our latest challenge -- STAMPING!!!! :) 

I used my Mason Jar stamp that I got in July at Viva Las VegaStamps and I used Basic Grey's Persimmon collection on my page :) 







A co-worker introduced me to making my salads this way .... Brian helps me assemble these on SUNDAY ... and then I grab a salad a day to take to work with me!  Pour all the contents into a bowl at work, add dressing (from a separate tupperware container that I have also pre-packaged for my work week) ... and then POOF! I have a salad a day!! :) 

And just in case you are wondering ..... 

Friday's salad looks just as fresh as Monday's :)   The mason jar seal helps keep them fresh all week long :)

Pinwheels -- featuring Bella Blvd. :)

Hi everyone :) 

I had some scraps of Bella Bvld.'s Estate Sale papers and made some pinwheels :) 

Not sure what I am going to do with them yet -- maybe use them as party favors for Brookie's upcoming birthday (yes, I know ... that's not until October! LOL!) :) 







Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)

Summer Vacay -- featuring Chic Tags :)

Hi everyone :) 


As I mentioned in the vacation mini album I made for Brookie, I had "pre-made" an album for me to use before we went on vacation in July -- and this weekend, I added the photos and embellies :) 

I used Chic Tags Let's Go collection :) 

 




I added several of these chevron bags throughout my mini album to add little goodies from our trip :)
