Just Lovely

I have a random just-for-fun page to share today! 

A few weeks ago, 3 of my friends came out to Alabama to see me! They travelled 10+ hours out here. Aren't I special? :) We got lots of photos that weekend… documents a lot of great memories made. Like, for example… sitting out on our deck drinking hot chocolate while it was, like, 30 degrees. (Ok, just to clarify, it was warmer during the day and we didn't think it'd be that cold out there.) 

So these photos on this page are from when we went shopping at the mall. We did a lot of shopping, eating, and talking over the course of a few days. I mean, what could be more fun than all four of us squishing into one photo booth for some pics?? 

Journaling reads: "You can't pass up the chance to take some photo booth pictures with you're @ the mall!" 

And this is my favorite part of the layout. I bought these wood veneer "potty people" a while back and every once in a while I use them. I thought it would be PERFECT to symbolize the four of us girls! I also love that it adds some awesome texture to the page.

Alright, have a FABulous Friday! :) It's the last day of January!

You Light Up My World (like no body else)

Heehee... are you singing yet?

Ok just popping in to post this layout I just finished the other day! It's of my friends and I this past weekend... 3 of my besties came all the way from Missouri/Kansas to spend time with me! Needless to say, we had a blast. :) 

So can you tell the title on this layout is from "What Makes You Beautiful" by One Direction? LOL There is a challenge over at Scrapbook Circle to use a love song on your layout and so I thought that song qualified as a love song. ;) Something not too gushy that I could use on a page about me and my friends. Not to mention we jammed out in the car to that song over the weekend. 

I had this super awesome sketch from Chic Tags and I wanted soooo bad to play along. Glad I got to! I cut the hearts out with my Silhouette Cameo and then backed the negative space with some uber-cute papers from the Crate Paper "Love Notes" line. I have a thing for Valentine's Day lines. I guess I just love hearts and red and pink! 

Alright- toodles for now :)

Behind the Art Today!

Christmas Flowers: Scrapped :)

I haven't gotten to scrap anything Christmas-y... I did some Christmas creating back waaay before Christmas, but around Christmas we were moving. So I'm so happy I got to scrap this layout with my "All is Bright" kit from Scrapbook Circle. I actually used a sketch from SC too.

I was a bit leery of using that VERY BOLD striped paper from Glitz Design, but I went ahead with it. And I actually ended up liking it! Just proves some things can turn out well even if you don't originally like it! I even added some glitter ribbon on some of the diagonals... adds some awesome texture to the page. I'm all about texture! :)

I'm going to leave it short and sweet for today. :) Hopefully I'll have some more projects to share soon!

Happy New Year! + SFTIO Empathy

Hello! Happy New Year! It's crazy to think it's now 2014… I wonder what this year will hold in store for me. Hopefully some good stuff! :)

Speaking of good stuff, it's the first day of the month! So that means the kit from Scrapbooking from the Inside Out is live! Yayayay! This kit is super amazing… (I know, I know, what kit of theirs isn't??) 

Here's my Instagram photo of the kit this month:

This month's kit is a mix of the Flea Market line from Maggie Holmes and the Cut & Paste collection from Amy Tangerine. I ADORE both of these lines, so when I found out that's what I'd be working with this month, I was super excited. You get several sheets of double-sided papers from each line, along with some coordinating cardstock.

Included in the embellishments is some Amy Tangerine Thickers, some Cut & Paste chipboard from My Mind's Eye, stickers from the Flea Market line, and Chalkboard Studio stickers from MME. Plus some super cute wood veneer hearts, butterfly paperclips from Webster's Pages, resin flowers, photo overlays, butterflies that are die cut out of bark (super cool!!), and a cut-apart sheet of tags from the Flea Market line as well. 

This kit just makes me happy. :) :)

OH- and something else important… the emotion this month is 


Wow… a really deep subject to scrapbook. But a fun one at that. There are so many ways to take this. I can't wait to show you what I've made this month!
