Mom

Mom. She’s strong. She’s sassy. She’s beautiful. She’s cool. She’s fierce. She’s a quick thinker. She’s my role model. She’s my biggest fan. I don’t know what I would do without her.

Happy birthday to my mom! xoxo

Scrapbook Layout | Sisters

Hello!! Happy Sunday!

Today, I wanted to share one of my favorite new layouts I’ve made this year. When I got the papers from Felicity Jane’s June kit, I thought of some old black & white photos that might work with it, particularly the floral paper. Then, I found this photo of my grandma & her sister, and it clicked! I love the photo, and how it works so well with the papers I put together. I like to think if they would have scrapped this picture when it was taken in the 40’s, it might have turned out something like this.  🙂

Thanks for stopping by!

Scrapbook Layout | Good Times

Hello! Well, I think we are safely into summer now! I can’t believe tomorrow is July 1!! It’s fun to walk through the stores and see all the red, white, and blue represented. I found some 4th of July stickers at Target & it made my day!  🙂

My layout here is all about summer! I have had this fun watermelon paper for a long time and I finally used it here. All the patterns remind me of summer and make for a fun page to look at! Good times, indeed!

Scrapbook Layout | The Best Day

Hello!! Happy Thursday!

Today I wanted to share a very colorful and patterned page. I was going through my stash trying to find some paper to match this photo of my mom (one of my faves!), when I found a little bit of Basic Grey’s Grand Bazaar papers. I loved this collection when it came out a couple years ago. It was a real treasure to find, so I decided to just wipe it out and use it all on this layout. I think the colors and textures match the mood I was looking to create. And, it feels good to use some of my stash!

Scrapbook Layout | Mom & Me

Hello! Happy Tuesday! Well, May snuck right up on me, how about you? It’s still a little chilly out, but the flowers and trees are starting to bloom, so that makes everything ok in my world.

I just wanted to share a fun, colorful layout with you today. I looove the new Fancy Pants Atwell collection. This patterned paper was a must-have for me! When there is a giant design on a paper, I tend to not use it (at least right away) because big prints are intimidating to work with/around. I just went for it here. I love this photo of my mom & me from graduation last year, and the pops of color in the photo worked with the paper, in my thoughts. So, I added a little black to tone it down, and voila! A page I love.  🙂

By the way, Mother’s Day is Sunday, have you bought gifts yet? I almost all of mine wrapped. I can’t to give them to mom!

Top 10 Photos of 2013

2013 was a stellar year for me, photography wise. I learned so much in school about what makes a good photo, and how to manually use the controls on my camera. I practiced so much throughout the year, to get better & better. Oh the sacrifice!  🙂

Here are my 10 favorites. It was hard to narrow it down!!! I chose these based on particular memories that came to mind, great lighting, and even great hair (lol!).

Enjoy!
