Sail Away

This is one of my favorite sets and I was very excited to see it in the new catalog! I love the masculine feel to this card but you could really use it for anything!



fashionably late

 I have had this set and the framelits for a while and just haven't taken the time to create anything so this was my "do it" moment. I like how it turned out.



vintage trinkets


 I created this card because I wanted to use a vintage look but with a clean feel. This fits my dear friend Jenny's aesthetic and when I showed her this card she loved it!

A little birdie told me to dream

This is for the Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge #42! It was fun to make amidst the chaos of my house the last week. Enjoy!

Father's Day on the high seas!

This is my card for the Create with Connie and Mary color challenge this week. I had a great time making it and then things went a little crazy around my house! Adaline turned 1 so we had a small celebration and some cake! It is a nice mile stone although I am a little sad that the time went by so quickly! I can't imagine how my father must feel about having so many grandchildren and the time that has gone by since I was turning 1! I hope he has a great day and I hope all of your special father figures in your lives have a great day as well. Time goes by way to fast!

Enjoy!
