Back 2 School Giveaway

Today is our first day Back 2 School!! I enjoyed the summer with my kids but I'm ready for them to go back. They are excited to go too! This year my third child is not old enough to go (he will be 5 in Oct.) but he did get into the PreK so he will be going to the same school as his brother & sister! So I will only have 2 at home :)

Here are some back to school pictures:


And now for the giveaway. Since it's school time I thought it would be fun to giveaway not 1 but 4 sets of American Crafts Thickers.

My Little Treat

Here is the last layout I created with the August Citrus Twist Kit.  I can not tell you enough how much I LOVE this kit.  Confession time:  I REALLY wanted to use that cute the little girl sticker and thought it would look great on this layout.  I just love those stickers :)

Cirtus Twist ~ Daily Travels

Yay it's Friday!!  I realized half way through this week I forgot to share the Citrus Twist Reveal.  So today I want to share a layout I created with the August Main Kit and August Embellie Add-on Kit. I really had a blast with this kit.  Some would say it was travel heavy but I don't think so.

I took those few travel things and made a "Daily Travel" layout.   This layout shows what a day in life looks like.  I have 5 kids under the age of 8 so it takes some time to get everything ready.  I have to make sure the diaper bag is full, pack extra clothes, and we are always missing a shoe before we leave lol.  Then we are off!

Rafting Down the River

I just realized I forgot to share this fun layout using the July Kit Add-on and Embellie Add-on from Citrus Twist Kits.  I really had fun with this kit!  I love the colors and fun embellishments that I received in this kit.

For this layout I wanted to use those cute Maya Road frames. Our family went on a fun rafting trip down the river.

Poject Life Vintage Travel + Giveaway

**I decided to giveaway 2 sets of cards and the Winners are**

Fantastic pages and I love how you kept it clean and simple!

Wow, your layouts are so cute! It looks like your family had a blast! Thanks for the chance to win! :)

Please email me to claim your prize.  

I'm so excited to get to share with you my first Project Life spread.  I have been wanting to do Project Life for sometime now and just haven't done it.  So when this amazing opportunity to work with one of Becky Higgins's Exclusive Core Kits came to me, I jumped at the chance.  I have to note  "This post is part of a paid campaign with American Crafts, but all opinions are my own."

So Project Life for me is so simple because it requires these simple little cards, your photos, and a pen to journal.  Also anyone can do this, even if they have never scrapped a day in their life. 

I'm not sure if you know this but Michael's carries one of the largest selections of Project Life, including two exclusive core kits and some exclusive albums. 

I'm working with the Vintage Travel Core Kit for this PL spread. The Vintage Travel Kit has some deep blues, reds, and brown.  Also there are some fun maps, planes, trains, and cute sayings.  It can be used for more than travel in my opinion.

The other exclusive kit is Dear Lizzy 5th & Frolic.  This features light blues, pinks, yellows, & green. Also the cards have cute foxes, houses, keys, ect.

For this PL Page I wanted to document our weekend we traveled to the zoo and then to my family for Christmas in July.

Here is the full page:


Here it the Left Side:


Here is the Right Side:


Here are a few close ups:


Now for a fun giveaway!  I'm giving away a sample pack of one of each card that comes in this Exclusive PL Core Kit.  So leave me a comment by Friday June 9th and I will pick a winner.


I want to thank you for stopping by my blog and reading about my Project Life page.

Gossamer Blue August Reveal

Somehow the 1st got away from me lol.  I realized half way through the day that is was the August 1st.
So here is my Gossamer Blue layout using the main kit only.   This layout is about my sons love for planes.  When the new baby came we built a new bedroom downstairs.  My two boys moved down there together and he wanted planes flying on his ceiling.  I loved the idea so I went to Hobby Lobby and there they were 50%!!  How cool is that?!
