I Spritzed over my favorite butterfly punch with Rock-a-fella Blue Shimmerz Spritz.
Digital frames by Holly McCaig - love this photo collage.
And my first feature ever, on Two Peas in a Bucket......I am so flattered and Rebecca showed it on the Sassafras blog, too! I was thrilled!!
Hope you all have a great weekend!

These gorgeous new papers from Webster's have been sitting on my desk, just begging to be used....these are from Life's Portrait. I was feeling a bit rusty as it has been a while since I scrapped, but I am pretty happy with the result.
I spritzed some Vibez in Red'y' or Not on one of the new Webster's die cuts and hand stitched the edge. I added one of the journaling cards from the Lullabye Lane collection...these are the cutest little cards ever! And the layer under the photos is one of the 6x6 papers.....I love the scale of these!
Also layered one of my script stamps with some Coal Shimmerz paint to add a little more depth to the paper, the white and yellow script was pre-printed. I love this background!
The butterflies are one of my new favorite punches - the large butterfly by Martha Stewart.....gorgeous!!
So, I took a bit of a break on cleaning and have been enjoying a little creative time this week. Finding a balance is so hard for me, something I am really working on finding....any tips?

I'm feeling the urge to sew again.....my daughter loves ruffles and girly clothes, so why don't I ever sew for her? My mom made a lot of my clothes when I was a child and I remember thinking they were SO special. I want Em to have those memories of me, too. This morning I showed her these patterns and got a HUGE thumbs up.....so I think I'll try to make my version. (after I finish cleaning) hehehe
These are patterns by Pink Fig.....aren't they adorable?!?

And to do that...I am taking some time to organize and clean my house.....I don't know how many of you are like this, but creating and cleaning don't go hand and hand for me. lol In fact, the opposite is true, for me and I have been seriously creating for the past couple of years....don't think I don't clean, I'm talking about the deep cleaning...closets and baseboards and clutter. It was just about this time last year that I did my studio overhaul, so it is definitely time. You many see a little less of me until I get this stuff straightened out a bit.
And I can't post without something to share.....a precious moment when Em met one of her favorite princesses at Disney World.
I am really working on the journaling and finding it very satisfying.
I painted this Prima Paintable with Shimmerz Paints and Spritz - it just glows.

A close-up of Grape Escape over dry brushed Gesso on the background. The shimmer of the Vibes is amazing....truly the best I have seen in any product!!
And my finished layout, I used some Webster's Pages on this one....this month we did a guest lift of the sweet and talented Lynn Yen, so I gave this one double duty.
I love this old photo of me, my mom and Joe, my brother. This is from 1978 and a proud big sister moment for me.
Can I just say, I love scrapbooking. I scrapped my first layout this weekend in 2 weeks.....and it felt great! Still buzzing from CHA and the wonderful people that I met there......a couple that I was really star struck by that were incredibly sweet.....Ronda and Debee. I've been fans of their work forever. Wish I had asked for a picture. lol
See you soon,

Cosmo Cricket had a fabulous sketch on their blog this week that really inspired me based on a layout by Amy Parker. I love her work!! So here it is...
I mixed and matched from a lot of CC lines, Jolly by Golly, Earth Love and Nutmeg. I used some of the new Rolling in the Hay Vibez under the title - the shimmer is unbelievable!!
And a bit of 'Red'y or Not Shimmerz Vibez to mimic the layered circles on the sketch.
Just trying to wrap up some housework this morning but had to pop on to share this. :)
Hope you are having a great weekend!

I used the new Lullabye Lane collection for this layout....I love how these papers work with non-baby projects, too! I also printed some of the new digital elements from Winter's Wings onto transparency for the lacy doilies.
I invite you to come play along and show me your project....there will be a new collection from Webster's as a prize, if you need any more incentive. ;)
