double the fun


YAY, my first double-page layout in what I'm sure is three years. Not quite sure why I stopped making them, but I will definitely be making more of these!

This page goes with the 5.20 sketch for Sketchy Thursdays. (Would I post anything else on a Thursday? *grin*)


I love these pictures from Easter at my in-laws house. Nate has so much fun opening his eggs after he hunts from them. Each little toy is as big as a giant present to him. In these pictures he'd opened an egg with fishing bobbers, one with chocolate, and one with a Jessie toy from Toy Story. That was the one that got that huge grin. He LOVES Toy Story!


Sorry this post is so pic-heavy. I just loved so much about this page. I felt like I had three times as many corners to cover and edges to embellish! So fun!




Like I've said before: I love making my own flowers! The ones on these two pages are some of my favorites so far.

In addition to using the sketch for Sketchy Thursdays, I also used the Creative Type Prompt #31 to use type rub-ons. The journal spot above the word EASTER is filled with nearly a whole sheet of Daisy Bucket word rub-ons that I had been saving. Though not font, the blue bubbles rub-on was also one I had been hanging onto from K&Co.

I also used a challenge at Scrap Freak: May Class - Be Inspired #11 Fashion Colors. If you aren't playing along at Scrap Freak you're missing out on some wonderful inspiration! Hope to see you over there!

Thanks for stopping by here today! :)

An update to yesterday's post: I did list a few of the items from yesterday to my Etsy shop. More will be added very soon. Thanks so much to everyone who purchases the flowers I make or kits I put together. I truly enjoy making them, and I'm glad they are given a good home!
