Fancy Free layout - Cherish

I hope everyone that wanted some Fancy Free was able to get some at Paper Issues Thursday!  There's still some bits left.  I had to use the flower paper first, so here's the obligatory fussy cut :)  Hope everyone has a nice weekend!

Save the Drama for Your Mama - Paper Issues!

Paper Issues has a new issue out called Save the Drama for Your Mama, concentrating on using large, dramatic elements on your page like a title, embellishment or photo; create a layout about your mom and things she says, the lessons she has taught you, how you're alike or different; use of the new Paper Issues llama card; or create a project about a stage show, your favorite TV drama or a musical.

I used the nifty big acetate numbers  from Paper Issues representing Emily's age at the time of this photo.  I love this adorable collection from Imaginisce, Sunny! It's so cute I had trouble deciding which paper to use first, so I ended up using six of them - lol.  The embellies are cute, too, and I can't wait to make more pages with this collection.  Get 20% off with code Melissa at Paper Issues to grab this collection or anything in the store.  Fancy Free comes in later this week!

Visit the Paper Issues blog for more inspiration from this issue and play along for your chance to win a gift certificate to the store.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Jot Mood Board, Fancy Free and Emily Left Me :)

Emily moved into her own apartment last weekend. I miss her and her sweet voice and sunny personality every day. Serge, our lab, is having the hardest time with her being gone. He stays by the front door at night instead of coming to bed, waiting for her to come home.  Poor guy! I'm excited for her new life, though. I had her take a bunch of selfies before she left :)  They're all slightly different and I'll scrap each one, so you'll see a bunch of similar photographs come up I bet! But they're all different to me :)

So I was able to get my hands on some Fancy Free embellies.  No paper, though.  So I just painted up some paper and did the Jot Mood board inspired by the yellow and white and pinks.  My first with Jot.  Lovely publication and inspiration.

Thanks for visiting!

Playing Around with Pinkfresh...

So Paper Issues was the first store I found to get Pinkfresh's new collection Life Noted in so I scooped it up and played with it the day I got it.    Sara had sent some pictures of some of her ventures around different cities exploring with her friends, and I knew I wanted to use this black and white "Awesome" city paper with her graffiti picture and add some hot pink Dylusions paint.  The other is baby Peanut giving me the side eye when I took his picture of Sara giving him a snuggle :)
