Something New!!! :)

Well, I am finally posting again and I will NOT let so much time go by next time! There have been a ton of changes going on in my life and things are finally starting to settle down. :)
First, I really wanted to start with a Layout. I really think Layouts are my FAVORITE paper craft to make! There are just so many fun papers and embellishments to play with and the fact that you get to display your favorite pictures in some really cool ways! I just couldn't resist doing a layout with this picture of my niece/God-daughter Lily. I am sure you can figure out why...
In this Layout I used a cool turquoise blue from Bazzill as the main base. All of the fun patterned paper comes from Bo Bunny's Sun Kissed Line. Now this is a really bright & colorful paper line to work with. I have a ton of amazing summer pictures that I am making layouts with right now and actually this paper line is what inspired me to take the pictures! It was really neat to be inspired this time into taking a certain type of picture because of something as simple as paper!! Inspiration truly comes from all around us! :)

This next project is just a simple little thank you card that I made for my Mother-in-Law.
I just started with some yellow Bazzill paper for the main base. Then covered that with patterned paper from Echo Park Paper Companies (a walk in the park) paper line. I LOVE this paper!! Its so fun and it could be used for anything from a little girls layout to something with a little more sophistication like this card. Hope you like!
