Wow! It's been a crazy couple of months!

Well, as usual, I'm so behind on my blogging! Some day maybe I'll be better about keeping up with my blog! We can hope! lol I know that if that happens you might just die of shock! You know that when your friends tease you about your blog that it's probably time to get it updated! Not naming names (Jane) but aren't you proud of me? This has been a crazy time and when you add traveling for Christmas and then vacation to the mix... well, let's just say that I've been trying to keep my head above water! We did have a wonderful vacation, though. We spent a week in Puerto Rico and really got to relax. We go with our company, so it was so wonderful to re-connect with our friends and enjoy the tropical climate. The only problem was coming home and having to pick both of our kids up at their different colleges because they were both so sick and wanted to come home. I'm so thankful that they want to come home though, so you won't hear me complaining! They are both well now thankfully!


I have had so much great news lately that I just need to share! First off, I was recently asked to be a Design Team member for Zva Creative ! Yipee!!! It was so exciting! For the first time ever, I had samples at CHA! Here are a couple of the things that I did for the show. (I did more, but I'll need something else to blog about so I'll share more later! lol) If you haven't gotten a chance to use this line, you really need to get your hands on some! They are so beautiful! The flowers and crystals compliment each other so well! You're going to love them!
This is Jade after a very long photo shoot. I got tickled when I got this picture back. This is the look that I get at home when she's 'done'. It turned out to be one of my favorites from the shoot. All the flowers, the brads and those fabulous crystals are from Zva Creative.

This one is of my great nephew Preston. I love this picture that his Nana sent me! He's so new that is little cord is still attached. On this one, the crystal strands, the brads and even the crystal title are from Zva Creative.

I also was so honored to be asked to be a guest designer for Webster's Pages this month! Webster's is my favorite paper line right now!! I love the gorgeous papers and the journaling cards are wonderful!!! They sent me the "Hello Beautiful" line to work with! Wow!! It's so beautiful and it really reminds me of gorgeous fabrics. Just perfect for altering as well as scrapping! They also sent me a package of their trims. Trust me, these will not disappoint either! Another beautiful product from Wester's Pages! Here are a couple of things that I did for them.

This page is my husband and his siblings. I took this picture a while back and I was really happy to get to have one of all of them together. All the paper here is from Webster's, even the cutout details that are paper. I did add a bit of the inspired line on this one. I couldn't help but add some crystal flourishes from Zva! I think that they complimented the page beautifully. The butterfly I made. I didn't have one that matched, so I cut up a Prima flower and added some wire from another butterfly that I pulled apart. It was a quick way to get exactly the color I wanted.
I pick this up on clearance at Hobby Lobby. It was so UGLY but I really loved the shape of it. All it took was some gorgeous Webster's to make me love it! I did the arrangement of the ivy and roses and even tucked in some butterflies that I cut out of the Webster's papers.


Last, but certainly not least, we had the reveal at My Creative Scrapbook! Wow! Check out all the fabulous work that the design team did this month! This month the kits feature Little Yellow Bicycle, Fancy Pants and Teresa Collins. There is something for everyone! Here are two layouts that I did with the Main Kit.

This one is a picture of my husband and my kids years ago. Everything seen here is in the Main Kit at My Creative Scrapbook. LOTS of fun goodies!!

This one is a picture I took of my inlaws a few years ago. Everything here is also in the Main Kit. The only things I added were alot of ink and glimmer mist.

So, as you can see, I've been scrapping alot! This month has been a lot of fun, but very busy!! I'll be back to share more soon!! Really, I will! lol

Thanks for stopping by!
