Brother & Sister

My daughter, now 10 (!) is the best big sister a little guy could ask for.  She is patient, kind, and always has time for Ezra.  They’re both much bigger now then they were in this photo, but the love remains the same.

This layout uses Crate Paper’s DIY collection, alosng with some paint and some REALLY ancient Jillibean Soup letters.  I started by enhancing the background paper with some additional paint, then I stenciled circles all over the background and added some fussy cutting.  Simple but effective!
Thanks for taking a peek!

4 Months Old!

Hi All!  We’re back in the USA now, and working on getting settled in our new place.  Between here and there, though, is a trip to the East Coast to attend a special family wedding.  :)  So, more regular posting is on the horizon, but please bear with my for a few weeks.

Today I have a layout to share that is full of color!  I decided to play around with stencils and paint one night, and made these tags.  I decided to use them on this layout and go all-out color.  I used the white background to keep things from being too overwhelming.



With this much color, minimal was the best route for embellishing, so I used a few die cuts and enamel dots and went with it. 


Enjoy color today!
