wishes for my kids

For this week's project for Noel Mignon I created this layout using the Let's Get Lost Daily Diary kit for this month. 

Since I don't often use the 2"x3" cards in the traditional pocket page way I used the reverse sides to add some color and a mix of patterns to my page. 

I added lots of fun dimension and texture using embellisments from the kit, including washi tape, enamel dots, chipboard, a leather embellishment and some ribbon.

Let's Get Lost

Hello again!

Today I have a couple of layouts to share using the April Daily Diary kit from Noel Mignon called, "Let's Get Lost." It has a definite travel vibe to it but it can be used for everyday projects as well.

Here are two pages that I have created so far:

You can visit the Noel Mignon blog for details on how I put these pages together. 

Have a great day!!

Happy Heart

For my Noel Mignon project this week I went with a gold and green color scheme because of the upcoming St. Patrick's Day holiday.

This proved to be a little bit challenging since the kit didn't contain a whole lot of green, though there are many beautiful gold accents.

I found what green I could and improvised on some other pieces with my green Heidi Swapp spray mist.

Here is a look at what I created and you can visit the Noel Mignon blog for more details on the assembly.

I hope that you are having a wonderful week so far. 

Please come visit again soon ♥

Looking back

One day while looking through old photos on my computer I came across this sweet picture of my youngest daughter and my father-in-law.

Now, typically this might not seem like  much but it is a picture I hadn't seen in a long time, and  one that caught me off-guard since he passed away almost a year ago. It will be a year on the 21st of this month.

I wanted to preserve this special memory and knew that the flowers from the Pink Paislee paper in my Noel Mignon kit for this month would do it the justice it deserved.

Since our project assignment for this week was to create with layers I set out to do just that and this is the layout that I ended up with:

Here are some close-ups of my page:

meeting Nadia

Good morning!

Today I have a fun page to share using the new Delightful Classic Kit from Noel Mignon.

My kids and I had the rare opportunity to meet a legend:

We'd gone into the Cox Convention Center for the NCAA gymnastics meet between Oklahoma and Auburn and were going to get in line when one of my girls saw Nadia Comaneci standing by one of the doors to the convention center. We couldn't NOT go talk to her so we went right over and met her and got a picture taken. Not too long after we got in line Nadia came back into the building with Simone Biles and her father. To say that we were a little starstruck is putting it so mildly. It was amazing. 

Here are some detail shots from my page:

Have a great weekend!

another quick page to share

I am so glad that it's the weekend!

How about you?

Do you have any big plans?

I am happy to report that I have no big plans. I'm actually kind of excited about that considering how busy we have been the last couple of months.

Today's layout was made using the February kit, Happy Together, from the Noel Mignon kit club.

I cut my title from one of the journaling cards and layered lots of strips of patterned paper for the background. 

Have a good one!

another project for Noel Mignon kit club

Hello, it's Thursday and that means I have a new Noel Mignon project to share with y'all!

I actually have two to share but will keep you in suspense on the other one, ha ha.

This was created using the February Noel Mignon Daily Diary kit, Happy Together.

The kit definitely has a very Valentines-y vibe but it's versatile and can be used for everyday projects as well. In this case I used it for a page of my oldest daughter during one of my kids' many shows they've put on for me and my husband over the years. ☺

I used some pocket page cards and lots of heart stickers and chipboard. 

I think my favorite part of the page is the paper strip border I made from patterned paper and bits of washi tape. 

Have a fantastic day!

happy colors and my sweet girls


It's been a whirlwind of activity around here lately and while I've been scrapping some I hadn't gotten to post anything here.

I do have a new page that I put together just for fun using the Simple Stories Carpe Diem collection. I really love the bright, happy colors in this collection and the sweet icons like the cute little cat.

I used the SN@P! Pack for a lot of the embellishments on this page, including the cut out kitty and the colorful hearts. The "hello" is from the Love & Adore collection. I like the black and white photo paired with the bold hues of Carpe Diem. 

I did  use some miscellaneous washi tapes (love the gold with the bright colors!) but the rest is from Simple Stories. 

Thanks for stopping by!
