10. "Wise & Strong" family layout. I did this layout as a guest designer for CSI Color Challenge site.

9. "Enjoy" Glitter Bottle. I made this just 'cause :) I love those projects I can make just for myself!! And yes, there is glitter glued to the inside. Super fun to make!!

8. "I heart family" Layout. I made this layout for an altered ribbon challenge. We were supposed to alter a piece of ribbon on a project, so I stamped on white ric-rac and stamped on seam binding. I love that it is so simple.

7. "Mexico" layout. This is a layout from my trip to Mexico with my sister. The view of the pool was so amazing!!

6. "Biker Chick" Layout. This is a layout I did for my Epiphany Crafts Design Team. Love this one!!

5. "Dream Big" mini chest. I made this for Epiphany Crafts using Authentique goodies :)

4. "Relax" layout. Enough said :) Just relax.

3. "Everyday is my favorite day" layout. I made this for the Jillibean Soup Design Team Call.... and guess what?!? I'll be their Guest Designer in February!!! :) So Stay Tuned!!

2. "I just can't resist those big brown eyes" Layout. I did this layout with the October Paper Bakery kit and submitted it for publication. It did not get chosen, but I love it anyway!! :)

1. "Bang Bang! The story of my new haircut" Layout. I got bangs after 24 years. Yes, it was a big step and HAD to document it :) This is one of my favorites using the November Paper Bakery kits AND My Favorite Things Stamps and Dies by my bestie Laina Lamb.

Bang Bang!

Hello all!!

Christmas is almost upon us! I'm super excited. Mostly because I will have more time for crafting :) I wanted to share a layout I did using The Paper Bakery's December kits AND My Favorite Things Stamps and Die Cuts by Laina Lamb. I am not much of a stamper but I am IN LOVE with these stamps as well as the adorable die cuts.

"Bang Bang!" Layout

I hope you guys love this layout because I do!! I just HAD to scrapbook a page about my new haircut.... I hadn't had bangs in over 23 years!! But I love my sassy new look. I love the die cuts and I love the simple look of the word stamps... they are perfect for one stamp or a cluster of stamps on the page :) 

I will see you all soon.
