Find beauty in the everday -- and Excited doesn't cover it!

Hi everyone!

If you missed seeing my latest canvas using Bo Bunny's Camp-A-Lot collection -- you can check it out here! 

I wanted to share a layout that is going to be live today on the Blue Moon blog! (It will be live on Blue Moon blog at 8AM MST!)



This is Brookie and Brian when we were in California in March -- it was Brookie's first time seeing the ocean...



Also today the latest prompt is live on Practical Scrappers (where I am a Fresh Face Designer for them through July) -- this time we are sharing layouts about Birthdays!

I used a variety of Bella Blvd. goodies that I got from their warehouse sale!!



This is Miss Brookie at her 3rd birthday party!! She was so excited about her Dora doll!!




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

  1. Your first page makes me want to be at the beach...right now! LOL! I love the pink and the banner work. The second page is so much fun with all of the pretty Bella flowers (that was a lot of patient cutting). :)

  3. Wow, such gorgeous LO's!! Love the one of Brookie's first trip to the beach and how the flag shapes pick up on the reflection in the sand while the blues pick up the gorgeous ocean!! ~ Blessings
