Is this not the cutest layout ever?!

Okay so ya'll might think that I am crazy but I know what I love the second I lay my eyes on it! I was browsing some different blogs and websites and stumbled upon this layout. TOO CUTE!!! Does anyone have an idea what paper line the frame and what looks to be like chalkboard paper are?

Good Food, Michigan, & Tim Holtz!

Natalie and I were invited by our girl Sarah from Notions Marketing to come join her in a workshop with Tim Holtz! This decision was a NO-BRAINER!!! Before we knew it, we were on a road trip to Grand Rapids, Michigan. It was only a 4 hr drive but we still managed to have some fun along the way! First we stopped at a little orchard/restaurant in Fennville, Michigan...a place called Crane's Pantry. We had to drive a little ways off of the main interstate but let me tell you it well worth it! Besides all of the vintage decor' that had been collected since they opened the doors back in 1916, there was an excellent choice of meals and FANTASTIC homemade pies!! I cant have sweets so I just about jumped outta my seat when I saw they had SUGAR FREE pies as well!! WOOOOHOOOO!! Anyways, enough of my blabberin... here are some cool pics. :)

Ohhhhh how things have changed. :)

I wish I could have gotten I better picture of this one. It was one of my favorite things because of all the old prices. Now those were the good 'ol days!
So Cute!
We also stopped at little antique store. I LOVE places like this but I must say...this one was a little scary.
We had to get a picture of this. We were in the hallway of our hotel going to our room and noticed right away that the doors were not your standard size...

Some crazy wall art
These are some of the fun tags we made with Tim!

Easter Sunday in Chicago

I had so much fun with my family this Easter! We had an Easter egg hunt at home and then went to Chicago for dinner at my mother-in-law's. We always have such a great time over there and the food is always GREAT! Hope you enjoy the pics. :)

Mr. Cool

I LOVE catching photos of my husband Joe. Maybe I just love him so much, but he always has this look that he is too cool for school! LOL!

Okay so I FINALLY got around to making a project at home!! I am so excited to have a project done that is personal. We have been so busy making projects all day -everyday at work. So... it has been a little hard to want to come home and create. However, I am gonna get off my booty and make it happen! Hope you guys like this one :) This is a layout of my beautiful niece Lily. She is too cute and I have been so excited to create some layouts with her. I know there will be even more of her to come!!

I just LOVE that last picture! While I was taking the photos, my cat Molly just had to come over and be a part of it! She is always following us around no matter what we are doing. She is too cute!
