Project Millie's Life : June Week 1 / Week 36

This month I am determined to be up-to-date with Millie's album, and the Scraptastic A Day in the Life kit was just what I needed to get my bum in gear!

The numbered journaling card is color coordinated with the corresponding photo using matching sequins.  

Love the stamp by Ormolu (exclusive to Scraptastic)- I see myself using it all the time!

Layout: So Much Sweetness

I have loved every scrap of my Scraptastic Kit Club Destination Unknown kit. This LilyBee Design paper is so lovely and the tiny hearts are just perfection on paper!

Layout: Three Special Pillows and You

This is another layout using the Destination Unknown kit from Scraptastic kit Club. I loved this kit! 
The blog challenge that inspired this layout was the "Opposites Attract" challenge- I combined the neon sequins and softer colors and white to add the concept of opposites to this page. 

Here you can see the fan-tab-u-lous After The Storm stamps up close. 
Thanks for stopping by!

Layout: Singin' In The Rain

Millie's first Merle Fest was a rainy one. Per usual, the weather was perfect on the festival days during the work week and rainy on the weekend when I could attend. Despite rain, Millie enjoyed a few hours of music, dancing, and free yogurt samples. (Boy, did she love those samples!)

I cut apart the Echo Park journaling card paper from my May Scraptastic kit and layered the cards to create the look of various patterned paper.

Thanks for stopping by!

Monday Meals: Fresh Veggies + Penne + Goat Cheese

Inspired by a recipe on Pinterest, I decided to combine some of my recent market and co-op purchases into one dish. I picked up the organic zucchini and spinach at a local co-op last week and had purchased some plain goat cheese a couple weeks ago at the open air market in town. It was lacking spice and needs a bit of a kick, but my spice cabinet is lacking. 
Approximate recipe: 
1 cup penne pasta (uncooked) 
2 cups spinach
3 small zucchini 
2 Tbsp goat cheese 
Fresh ground pepper 

What are your go to spices? 

Layout: First Dance

This layout was inspired by the Scraptastic Sketch Challenge on their blog. I used scraps from past kits and my stash. The twine is by Ormolu - I have had it for a while and LOVE the sparkle it adds.
