Some People are Worth Melting for

Monday, June 4, 2018


I love this selfie Joe took with Olaf and knew I wanted to title it "Some people are worth melting for"! I made this layout for another Paper Issues challenge (actually a Scraplift Sunday). I substituted the hearts on the original layout for these colorful snowflakes made from this paper by Shimelle.


I used 2 kinds of alphas for the title.


I didn't add anything else to the layout since these snowflakes bring so much color to the page. I just layered a couple of papers under the photo.

When I went over to Mom and Dad's house on Mother's Day, I noticed the most GORGEOUS flowers ever on the back porch.


This layout came from a Scraplift Sunday at Paper Issues (I'll link if it goes up on their blog). 


The inspiration layout used a white background with stamped words. I didn't have a similar paper, so I used a gold text overlay/transparency sheet on top of white card stock.


Challenges like this and the monochromatic one make me consider storing my embellishments by color. I don't now, but it would make it faster! I kind of enjoy the hunt, though.


Have you ever seen a prettier plant?

I spent some time working on some Paper Issues challenges recently and made this layout about violet lemonade at Epcot's Flower & Garden festival. SO GOOD!! I missed it last year but am glad I tried it this year.


I submitted this layout for the monochromatic (plus black and white) challenge. I love how it turned out! I chose yellow because of the yellow flower in the background of the photo, and then realized it made the color of the lemonade pop even more!


It was fun to look through my stash and find yellow papers and embellishments.


And I finally used some black Thickers I've been hoarding!

Project Life 2018: Weeks 14 - 18

Monday, May 21, 2018


New layouts! I meant to hit "publish" on this post a while ago but forgot. This method of one page in the PL App every week is still working for me!

Week 14

Week 15  - I love the colors in this week!

I again did a quick recap of our Disney trip. We did so many fun things that it was more difficult to narrow down the pics this time! I did a few Instagram stories and used several in this layout - they already have the place and what we're doing so that cut down on journaling and allowed me to include more pics!

Week 16
Week 17 - really all we did was work and go to Busch Gardens!

Week 18 - Walmart Pickup came into my life. OMG. Please use my link and save yourself $10 (and gift me $10). You'll thank me later!! I was also invited to share my scrapbooking story over on Crafty Julie's blog!
That's about it. I'll be sharing May PL App pages soon!

March and April Book Report

Tuesday, May 1, 2018


How's your reading life these days? I'm keeping up for the most part... to get to 60 books for the year, I need to read an average of 5 books per month. I just started book 19 so I'm doing well! I didn't listen to an audiobook for the past couple of months but I can make that up easily.


Artemis by Andy Weir - it was good, but a little bit (ok, a lot) too technical for me. It was good, though!

The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah - AMAZING! UN-PUT-DOWN-ABLE (that's a word, right?)

Annihilation by Jeff Vandermeer - I read this because I saw am movie preview for it... It was weird but good. It's the first of a trilogy but I haven't read the other 2.

Sleeping Beauties by Stephen King and Owen King - It took me a while to get through this one, but overall it was good. I thought the ending was disappointing.

Practical Magic by Alice Hoffman - I'm ready to read everything Alice Hoffman ever wrote. I can't put her books down.

Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingate - I (still) have a hard time believing this book even though it's based off real events. Wow!

The Woman in the Window by A.J. Finn was really good - the chapters are super short and I couldn't put it down! It keeps me guessing all the way to the end.

Project Life 2018: Weeks 9-13

Wednesday, April 25, 2018


I've got weeks 9-13 to show you today. I just had several weeks printed (I always order from Persnickety Prints) and put them in my album today.

I'm continuing to add a monthly recap of the books I've read each month and love keeping up with it this week (vs. doing a card each week). I used a few Amy Tangerine cards on this layout.
This week turned out bright and pretty and I used some screenshots to document the week.
We spent the weekend in Gatlinburg, TN for our 7th anniversary. We stayed at hotel within walking distance of downtown Gatlinburg. We went to some Ripley's attractions and to the Melting Pot restaurant.
And this is the week I downloaded the Oh My Heart All-in-One card kit. Be prepared for it to take over the rest of my 2018 album (just kidding... sort of ha!). I also used the Project 12 March kit.
I mean, seriously - could the Oh My Heart all-in-one kit be any prettier?!
This was the game changing week for me - the week that freeform text came to the app! OMG! I LOVE IT! I added words to the "make a wish" card and "happy Easter" to the Easter egg card. I used an Instagram stories screenshot to document our day trip to Dollywood,

February Book Report

Monday, March 12, 2018



I'm at 11 books out of 60 so far and am charting my progress on Goodreads.

My Absolute Darling by Gabriel Tallent - UGH. I liked it and yet I didn't. It was disturbing.

The Weekenders by Mary Kay Andrews - I needed something quick and light after the previous book, and this fit the bill.

The Universe Has Your Back by Gabby Bernstein - this was my Audiobook listen this month. It was good and I'd like to listen to it again. I prefer self help and nonfiction books on Audiobook.

Future Home of the Living God by Louise Erdrich - This book was good/weird/interesting...

Small Great Things by Jodi Picoult - SO GOOD!
