June DT Reveal

I had so much fun with the Zinnia paper from MLYB. I can see a few more cards or even a layout or two coming from this still. So it's the 10th already and now we get to show you all our goodies we designed this month. You can check out all the other spectacular stuff from the DT here.

I'll start off with a favorite little thing of mine. I love when I'm able to actually create something I can use as a home decor item. I found this cutesy frame at Michaels on clearance and knew I could do something with it. Voila! This is what I came up with....

I'm thinking I've got to get a better picture of this. I swear the camera is not cooperating with me lately...ugh!

Quickutz releases new digital cutter files every couple of weeks and when I saw this one

I knew it would be perfect for these pictures of Marisa and all her silliness.

Then I did this one to savor my last year and actually last month in the 30's. I have hidden journaling in the tags behind the large photo of me. I actually like these photos of myself which is a rarity. Marisa was taking pictures on Mother's Day at the restaurant and she got these. Plus, I think any photo looks better in black and

Then lastly, this layout was done for my "15 minutes or less" newsletter article this month. I used black cs from my stash as I thought it made the papers just pop.

That's the end of my scrappiness from this week. I felt like doing more, but there's so many other things that need to be done around here. I finally just finished planting flowers in the backyard. I swear the backyard is taking forever to get together this year!

Well, off to prepare for tomorrow's field trip. I'm going with Marisa and her 4th grade class to our state capital -- Lansing. We are taking big motor coaches which should be a nice ride. I couldn't imagine taking a bouncy yellow school bus all the way there. I'd be so
Until next time...

Whoa! I can't believe it...well, yes I can because it does always come right after May So of course being the first of June, I get to show you my early layout from Back Porch Memories! However, before I do that let me just show you the scrumptious kits this'll love them for sure!

The solo kit features MLYB Zinnia -- gorgeous papers!

The medley has Basic Grey Lime Rickey, Scenic Route Garden Grove, and Cosmo Cricket Early Bird in AWESOME MIX of papers for sure!!

Oh, and these stamps couldn't be more perfect for summer!

Green and purple happen to be my FAVORITE color combo! I've always thought it such a springy soothing mix. That's what makes these Zinnia papers one of my faves for sure. Now for my which my sister would probably shoot me for using that picture..LOL I try to tell her that it's the moment that's important because in the end, our kids our grand kids won't be picking apart how we look(well, at least I hope They'll just be happy to have the photo of us to look back on especially this sweet photo of her with her children (wow, that still sounds weird...children...when she's only had one child for ten years). I love this photo because no matter how tired she looks after just giving birth, she's such a beautiful person both inside and out!

For the month of June, I host a challenge at BPM. My challenge is an easy one...scrap a special guy in your life or in the life of another. Here is my layout depicting a "new" special relationship my niece has with her little sweet!

LOVE the BG Wisteria soft and pretty!

That's it for now. I have so much work going on around the house and being so lazy about getting it done. It's going to rain here today, so that will be my excuse for not going outside and getting the rest of the plants in the
Take care and have a blessed day!
