Treasure This

My pups are always doing silly things, and I try my best to capture those moments. This next layout features Ruby Mae being goofy with a blanket last year.

Treasure This

I used Teresa Collins “You’re My Happy” collection, along with 2 different Tattered Angels mists, using the packaging technique for my background.

The design is based on Let’s Get Sketchy Week 2, May sketch:


I stayed true to the sketch, adding the corner piece to give it some interest. Really love how this turned out!

I chose Teresa Collins for the May Manufacturer Challenge at ACOT – to use the letter “T” and for bonus, do mixed media. You knew I had to do the bonus right!?!?! 😉

TFL! 🙂

Lunch at Chili’s

Still trying to get as many layouts done before the new year arrives! This layout features me and my hubby a few years ago at Chili’s. Its for ACOT’s “What’s on TV? Challenge” – which the hostess chose DINERS, DRIVE-INS, & DIVES and the challenge is that one photo must show a restaurant/cafe, inside or out.

Lunch at Chilis

The design for this layout is based on Let’s Get Sketchy, December Week 2 sketch.


When I saw this sketch, I knew I was going to do some mixed media. Taking the colors from both our shirts, I chose to use gelatos in Snow Cone, Metallic Blueberry and Aqua Dolce and the red is mist from Tattered Angels. I used the packaging technique, which I’m so in love with!


I even tried stamping on top of all the gelatos/mist. I need to practice a bit more, but I still like the affect.


The “Please & Thank You” is a die cut piece from Basic Grey’s “Fact or Fiction” collection (all the papers, bits and pieces and brad came from that collection). I fussy cut the frame, and then trimmed a bit more, popping up the phrase, so it stands out, with the red mist in the background.

TFL! 🙂
