The blogging struggle is real....

I know, long time no blog. But I do have a lot of things to share so let's get started, shall we?

First of all, I was a fan feature on the Paper Issues blog.

This gives me some sort of weird pleasure that I can't even describe. lol I don't know why this excites me so much, it's probably just a random pick BUT I don't care. I still get excited. Here is the layout that was featured:

It's just this crazy kind of fall themed layout with frames, die cuts and such. This photo was taken when I was pregnant with my son...very pregnant...and when my daughter was almost two. She is now an adult so yep...throw back photo time!

The layout below was a pretty simple layout with just a few different papers, a banner and some paint splatter. I ~think~ that it was a Paper Issues challenge, where you had to add a certain type of element to your layout but I can't recall. This photo was taken a few years ago.


The layout below was also for a Paper Issues challenge. I think I had to use washi plus a hashtag and a few other things. Enamel dots, probably. I rather like this layout, maybe because I'm using my favorite colors OR because the layout was about my happy place...the beach!


Did I ever share on my blog this layout of when we went whale watching?? This was made quite a while ago but I just LOVE IT.


I'm also not sure if I showed you these cards that I made using Lawn Fawn stamps. Simple and sweet!





So basically I'm not sure if shared these cards with you, either. I should keep up on my blog better, I know, I know.....

This card is one of my all time favorites. There are elements inside that you can see through the window that I cut from the front. LOVE IT!!!! I sent that one to my bestie.






This card was made a LONG LONG time ago! I made it using some Greeting Farm stamps and wanted it to be super frilly. I think I accomplished that.
The layout below features my daughter from one year to the next. She started getting her eyebrows done and doing her make up differently and did an ombre on her hair....she's got it all together!


Well that's it for today! Thanks for stopping by and I hope to post again soon. But no promises! lol
