My new tattoo


My friend Renee came over this past weekend and we spent an afternoon just chattin' and scrappin' while our kids played. It was fun, and I made this layout while we crafted.

It's a mix of Fancy Pants, Glitz Design and a stamp set from Kelly Purkey — some of my recent favorites that I seem to reach for whenever I get the chance.


I got my new tattoo a few weeks ago and I love how it turned out. I designed it in Photoshop ahead of time and the tattoo artist did a great job giving me exactly what I wanted. The word in the top left corner says "create,"in case it is too small to read. 

I found out that the anchor can symbolize tranquility, serenity and hope. So, my tattoo means "forever creating, forever hopeful." I love that!


I doodled a bit on my page, too. Something I love the look of and never do enough. Thanks for stopping to see my layout today!

When I saw Renee last week, I was telling her how beautiful your new tattoo looks. Such a beautiful design and the prettiest one I've ever seen. Love that you scrapped it (and how you scrapped it too)! :)

Great tattoo! I'd love some kind of anchor tattoo, but I haven't got the courage yet! Your page is cool too, I love the different shades of grey. x
