I recently purchased some fun nautical bangles from Etsy and then got into a whole "nautical" mood after that.  Now, I really want to go on a boat...


The Studio || Masks & Mists!

Good morning, everyone!

I hope that you are all having a nice weekend.

There is a new challenge up at The Studio this morning: use your stencils & masks on a layout.  So I used one mask and many mists:
I love the colorful end result! The mask is from Studio Calico and the mists are from a variety of places: Heidi Swapp (purple & turquoise), Studio Calico (yellow) and Tattered Angels (all other colors).

I hope you can play along with us...head on over to The Studio to see the fabulous creations from the rest of the design team!!

Eric and I began dating back in 2005.
Almost 7 years later, we got married (yes, it took us a while!).
And today we've been married for a year!  Time really does fly when you're having fun.  I'm lucky I married my best friend.  He's goofy (see wedding picture), he's sweet, he's caring, he spoils me rotten.  There's no one I'd rather spend my life with.

Punky Scraps || A Jolt of Yellow

Hey, everyone!  The newest challenge at Punky Scraps went live on Wednesday.  It was a sketch challenge with a twist: use lots of yellow and feathers/something Springy on your layout.  I used a WHOLE LOT of yellow:
Love the sunny end result.  Doesn't the color yellow just make you happy?  It has that effect on me.

Please head on over to Punky Scraps to see what the other ladies created and to take part in the challenge.

The Studio || Color Challenge

Happy Sunday morning, everyone!!

There is a new challenge up at The Studio today...it's a color challenge.  The palette is a pretty combo of pink, green and yellow.  I don't think that I would normally use only these colors, but I really liked using them together in the end.  Here's what I came up with:
As you can see, I kept it super simple this week.  I made this layout in about 15 minutes. Gotta love it when a project comes together quickly like that.

Please stop by The Studio and check out the other layouts by all the fab ladies over there and play along for your chance to win a sweet prize!
