favorites of 2016

Hello again!

I hope that you had a very merry Christmas and wonderful day surrounded by loved ones.

Our day was filled with so much fun- stockings in the morning followed by a Christmas church service where my oldest got to play a piano solo, then we came home to make crepes, one of my favorite Christmas Day family traditions. After that we loaded up gifts and headed with those and all of the crepe fixings to go to my mother-in-law's house where we played and ate and opened gifts and played and visited some more.

We are enjoying the time at home to relax and not have to be anywhere except for gymnastics for my two oldest. It is great to have some down time.

Before the end of the year craziness I wanted to share some of my favorite layouts from 2016.

It wasn't a full year of scrapping since I had to drop my teams for family obligations (we are homeschooling now and the kids are busy with their activities and I have lots to do at home) but I hope to make a change with that in 2017.

Here are some of my favorites:

I hope that it's been a beautiful year for you and wish you the best in the coming year.

Yes, I know that I have been gone for a while...

Truth be told, I am really missing scrapbooking lately.

Life has become busy with homeschooling 4 kids this year, their activities (gymnastics x 3 kids, piano, violin) and all of the back and forth involved with that.

Now we are in full-swing Christmas prep and I have seen so many cute Christmas layouts and holiday planners and lots from the new releases and I have become a little sad about not scrapping at all for a while.

So...if anyone out there still looks at my blog at all, I am going to start scrapping again.

I know it won't be much to start off with but after Christmas I have a goal of doing a couple of projects.

I did a few pages that I never posted back a month or so ago.

Is anyone still out there?

summer fun with the Happy Days kit

Today I have another new layout to share with the Noel Mignon Happy Days Classic Kit:

I cut a long triangular strip of cardstock to use as a template to cut the pieces of patterned paper.

I added lots of Amy Tangerine rub ons and rubber embellishments. 

I also added this cute journaling spot and wooden heart. 

Yeah, I went a little crazy with the rub-ons on this page but they are so super smooth and fun to use. 

I added a few enamel dots here and there as well. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today. 

Do you like what you've seen lately? 

Is there something you'd like to challenge me to do? 

I'm up for the challenge. 

It's my birthday today...

Leave your feedback in the comments, por favor ☺

It's been pretty quiet around here the last little while.

Lily turns 5

I have another new page to share, this time using the Noel Mignon Pure Bliss kit for a numbers challenge.

Here is what I came up with:

Since the challenge this week was to use a number somewhere on our project I decided to not use just one but a LOT of number 5s to celebrate Lily turning 5 last month. 

Here are a couple of detail shots: 

Have a great day!

another new project for Noel Mignon

This week our challenge was to create a layout honoring a woman in our life and I chose Matt's mom, the kid's grandma.

We see her often since she lives close to us; I wish that we didn't live so far away from my parents so that we could have a close relationship with them as well.

I made this layout with the May kit from Noel Mignon kit club, Pure Bliss.

Check out the Noel Mignon blog for more cute ideas using this kit.

You are my Sunshine

For the Noel Mignon challenge this week we were to include a sunshine somewhere on our project.

For some designers the sun was easy to find, for others it was more "hidden" on the page.

I decided to make the sunshine on my page a big design element on an otherwise simple layout:
