Layout: At 7 months

I have had this idea floating around in my head since the challenge to use numbers was issued on the Scraptastic Blog. I used thickers and alphabet stickers from my stash with bits of the March Mr. Brightside kit I had remaining.

Layout: Love You

I was inspired by the April Sketch Challenge at Scraptastic kit Club. I used some remaining bits from the April 8 Days A Week kit. I love how versatile this kit has been- I have scrapped using mainly pink,   all the colors of the rainbow, and now greens and blue.

Thanks for stopping by!

Layout: You Are So Beautiful

When I saw the banner cut out sheet by Theresa Collins in the 8 Days a Week Scraptastic Kit,  I knew I had to create a banner for this layout. I picked out all of the pink and grey shades and laid them on a scrap of pleated ribbon I found in the craft room (strown about to distract the cat, I'm sure!).
I created the first paint drops with acrylic paint by accident, as I was Playing around trying to come up with an alternative to spray ink. While I was playing, a certain unhelpful cat made her way onto my craft table causing my experiment to become permanent. Luckily I liked the look and it went perfectly with the color scheme.

Tell me about a time when you had an accidentally awesome mistake!

Thanks for stopping by!

Layout: And Though She Be Little...

She is fierce.

There is a bit of journaling about Millie's new found willfulness and independence tucked in the Whiskers Graphics bitty bag.

Christmas 2012 was pretty magical. It was Millie’s first Christmas and it was so much fun seeing her enjoy all of the twinkling lights and and shiny baubles.

Card: Hello Friend

I love the bright colors of last month's Scraptastic Kit Club, Mr Brightside kit. In trying to use up scraps and add to my card collection, I created this card. On the inside I stamped a thank you sentiment and wrote a note to a friend who has been so kind to me lately.
This card has already flown the coup and I love my new resolution to make (and use) cards on a regular basis.

Recipe: Chickpea and Quinoa Salad {Meatless Monday}

I found this recipe on Pinterest, and gave it a shot. The first time I made this, I knew I had a winner! I love the fresh veggies mixed with the chickpeas and quinoa.

 Our verdict- a Pinterest WIN. I made this again this past weekend and added green peppers and it was a BIG hit! For a dish that is healthy, light, and filling- I recommend checking out the recipe and giving it a shot!

Card: Have A Fabulous Day

I am generally not a card maker, and I feel extremely guilty every time I go out to buy a card for a birthday, wedding, or new baby. I have the stamps. I have the pretty paper. And I have the envelopes.
My goal this year is to start making cards more often and then keep them organized so they are easy to find when events arise.
Also, I am going to take advice from a friend and before cleaning my scrap area, challenge myself to make as many cards as possible out of what is left out.
I was able to make one card the other night before Millie woke up and needed me to get her back to sleep. Success!
