Leap Year/Day!

Hey, everyone! Happy Leap Year (Leap Day?)! I should have suggested to E that we get married today, since we would then only be responsible for remembering anniversaries every 4 years.

However, that is not really why I'm stopping in...I am stopping in to share a quick layout. I really wanted to do something with pinwheels and I thought the fun colors and papers in January's
Studio Calico kit were perfect:

Thanks for dropping by...enjoy the rest of your work week...

Creative Type...February

Hey, everyone!! So, I've been gone for a bit I know (I moved across country!)...but I'm back now and hopefully will be blogging/sharing again on a regular basis.
Tonight, I just wanted to quickly share the layout I made for this month's challenge at
The Creative Type. The prompt this month is to scrap your celebrity crush and use the color red. I took this opportunity to scrap some photos from a trip to the wax museum in Las Vegas:

Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day, everyone!!

As I mentioned on Sunday, E & I do not really celebrate Valentine's Day, but I still think it's kind of a fun, cute holiday. And while we will not go out to a fancy dinner or buy each other gifts (we did gifts one year, but it wasn't really our thing), I still decided to make him something special. E actually really likes my scrapbooking hobby, so I decided to make a layout just for him:

I hope you all enjoy today...if you're like me, you will celberate by eating chocolate and gummy hearts...yum! :o)

Hey, everyone! I wanted to pop in quickly and share a layout with you that I made recently. I made it to play along with this week's Studio Calico sketch challenge. Also, since Valentine's Day is just a few days away, I thought it was appropriate to make something mushy :o) E & I don't really celebrate Valentine's Day, but I still use the holiday as an excuse to make paper hearts and eat lots of candy :o)
Enjoy your week!

Patchwork & Rainbows, Oh My!

Hi, everyone! I wanted to pop in real quickly to share my layout for this week's Punky Scraps challenge. This week we had to create a layout inspired by this image:
I loved the patchwork-like aspect of the piece, so I tried to incorporate that into my layout. And, as you know, I love me some color, so I jumped on the opportunity to incorporate a rainbow. :o)

I also jumped on the trendy chevron bandwagon AGAIN. My chevrons turned out a little messy, but I kinda like it.

Hop on over to
Punky Scraps to play along and see what all the other awesome ladies created!

I just wanted to pop in very quickly and share a recent layout of mine. The layout features a picture of Eric and I on our recent trip to Paris. The picture was actually taken just a few hours before we got engaged...I had no clue about the excitement that was coming :o)
