so much more

“so much more delightful than you know”

Don’t you just love that? That’s how I feel about my kids and so that journaling die cut was all I needed to inspire me to get creating.

This layout also comes as part of a challenge…

This project uses the latest Up the Street Scrapbooking kit and is also a challenge for you. If you’re like me you love die cut patterned paper but sometimes it is so pretty, it’s just hard to cut. I hope you’ll be inspired to try cutting into it and having some fun. Check out the challenge here.

So Delightful

We had such a great time on our family vacation in Florida. We loved every minute but the best thing was sharing the adventures and time with my children. I was so proud of how well they all got along and behaved throughout the trip. Yes the drive was long. Long, long, long! Over 21 hours to be exact and we drove straight through. We also had a wide variety of ages and personalities to work with. So while I could scrap fun moments and pictures of gators and palm trees, beaches and boats, this layout focuses on a sweet moment between siblings. Love you guys!

This little birdie just may be my new favorite die. Who would have thought I’d get so addicted to die cutting?!

Isn’t this a darling little button card by My Mind’s Eye. It’s part of the kit and while the buttons are gorgeous, I just couldn’t bear to take them off the original card. It’s sanded and tied with twine to make an instant embellishment.

And finally, the journaling. I wish I had bettering printing and handwriting! Oh well…it’s the thought that counts, right?

Enjoy your day!
