A Boardwalk Birthday

Using up more of my OA papers - this layout features a mix of many different collections. I added glossy accents to the banners to add some emphasis.

October Afternoon week!!

Hey guys, this week I'll be posting one OA layout each day until Friday - I was looking through my stuff and came across my huge OA stash and decided to try and make a little dent in it :) This first LO is my DS as a baby. The floral pp matched the blanket in the photo really well. I got the title idea from the sheet of paper - "The Sandman Comes - he leaves me dreaming wondrous dreams of charming, far-off lands".

A beautiful moment...

At the end of the last school year, one of my daughter's field trips luckily fell on a Thursday, so I was able to go since that is the day I go into work late. I used up almost all that was left of my Prairie Chic collection by Bo Bunny (I sooo love that paper!!). I also used a Prairie Chic sticker, as well as a large Bo Bunny doily. The brads are from my old stash of Creative Charms.

My Dexter

Good morning! A bright and colorful layout about my son, using the "Hopscotch" collection from Colorbok. It's a gorgeous "signature" paper pad, so the papers are double-sisded. It had a lot of pink in it, but also really great blacks, greys, teals, and greens, so I figured I could make it work for a boy layout :)

I also added a whole lot of embellishmets from the Heidi Grace "Cartwheel" collection - epoxy sticker buttons, bling, and canvas sticker banners. And that white plastic circle? It's the left-over from the ATG gun cartridge:

A proper little gentleman

A little card to share today, using a Paper Nest Dolls stamp colored with Copics. The pp is "Swagger" by Fancy Pants, and the buttons are theirs as well. Enjoy!

Dreams do come true...

And today I'm sharing a dream-come-true kind of moment. It's hard to formulate the right words to adequately share my excitement... when I got the email from Kris, I admit I read it a few times - I just couldn't believe my name was really meant to be there...... I made the Bo Bunny DT!!

You know, that pp I buy ALL THE TIME. I don't think they've ever had a collection I didn't like and some of their releases have been my favorites of all time. And the other girls on that DT?? Super talented ladies... I can't even believe I will be creating alongside them. And some of them have been on the DT for years and years - what other proof would you need that Bo Bunny is an amazing company to work for - no one ever wants to leave!!

I am sooo looking forward to starting this new journey :)

Here is the entire DT:
