Hello World :)

Hi everyone!! 

I have been SO GOOD about using up my stash this year ... but I TOTALLY caved and bought 2 new MME collections ..... I couldn't help it ... all the new goodies out there are so yummy!!! :) 

I made this layout with the Cut & Paste collection along with the Chalk Studio collection that I got from BlueMoonScrapbooking.com :) 




Brian and I both work full-time, so we are lucky enough to coordinate a week off together in the summer to take the kids with us to Las Vegas in July.  :) 






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

  6. If anyone deserves new product... You do!!! You've been working SO hard on using your stash. I love this layout SO much. The photo collage look is so much fun! I'm so sorry that someone said that to Brookie the other day. It's just such a shame the things our girls have to go through! Hugs to her from me and Miss J!
