a winner, a layout and a mini...

the winner of my project life card give away is...

 Amy Coose said...
Love your card and you PL pages! Thanks for the great giveaway!
send me your email Amy and I will stick the cards in the mail for you.
I made a layout today for one of the blow out your stash challenges at Studio Calico...the challenge was to make a grid, but then go outside the lines...

that's mags and her nana...we got to spend 4 days with her this past week!
I also made a mini album for my ed assistant's grand daughter who will be welcoming a baby sister into the family in the next few days...

 This is the first time I have managed to use my bind-it-all even though I have had it in my closet for ages! I'm pretty happy with how it turned out...with a little more practice, I'm sure it will get better.
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful week!

hello Friday!

I am so glad that Friday is's been a long week! I have a couple of layouts to share before the weekend starts...

first up is a layout using Kelly Purkey's sketchbook 4 challenge me some circles!
every year, I take a pic of mags on her birthday in a dress that belonged to my grandmother...this is the 10th year...I have them in small square frames on my shelf, and I love seeing how she has changed every year!

I made the confetti pockets by die cutting circles from page protectors and then hand stitching them onto my layout...I love the way it looks and it is a really easy way to add some movement.

and a layout for last week's Studio Calico weekly challenge...keep it embellishments at all! yikes! but with some gesso, masks and stamps, sewing and washi, I think I might have just pulled it off

thanks for stopping by...have a great weekend!

a layout and a card

I love having a day off...that means that there is so much more time for crafty projects...I am currently picking little bits of paper off of my cameo cutting mat...I cut a bunch of cards for project life, but I hate cleaning off the mat...any suggestions?

I made a LO for the Studio Calico Sunday sketch using my March kit...loving the blues and greens in this kit!

they get this

Does your family do this? The kids cannot wait to get done with the pics I want so that they can make all kinds of funny faces...I cannot wait to bring all of these out when the get older:)

and a card using sketch #1 from KP's sketchbook 4 class.

love you

hope you all have a happy and blessed Easter.
