Tell Your Story

I just got our Hawaii pictures printed and couldn't wait to dive in and scrap them!  Teresa Collins' Tell Your Story line has beautiful coral and turquoise colors that compliment the pictures so well.  I created this first layout based off of the Hens' Den, Chic Sketch 2 which allowed me to include a lot of our beautiful Black Rock snorkeling pictures. 

We also had a bunch of pictures from our surfing lessons, and PageMaps' 7th Anniversary sketch was perfect for it.

I also created this two-page layout of our snorkeling trip at Honolua Bay.  The layout on the left is based off of My Creative Sketches' May sketch, and the layout on the right is for CSI's Case file 73.

10 Years of Marital Bliss

Jesse and I are celebrating our 10 year wedding anniversary today.  [Insert lovey/mushy/sweet comments here].  Love you babe!

Jesse's soccer team, aptly named Wolfpack (they are a rowdy bunch!), finished their indoor and outdoor soccer seasons.  They took a group picture this year, which is cool, and I also captured a couple candid shots of one of their games.  Enjoy!

Final Christmas Layouts

I had a chance to do a little more scrapbooking this week with Teresa Collins' Christmas Cottage.  I made my final 2012 two-page Christmas layout using sketches from Page Maps and Paper Secrets.

I also finished this layout.  I created it earlier, but realized it needed a little umph.  Here is the new and improved version!

*Heart* Family

Jesse is heading over to Indiana this weekend  to see his dad.  We've been thinking about them a lot lately and love them very much.  Here are a couple pictures from a short impromptu trip that they took not too long ago.

We went up the tram (which they had never done before) and took a trip to the Crossroads Motel because they are Breaking Bad fans!

NSD 2013

Well it's National Scrapbooking Day again (you celebrated . . . right?) and I spent most of my day working on some projects and attending a bunch of online crops.  I was able to create a couple layouts and cards and wanted to share them with you.  Here are two Christmas layouts that I made using Teresa Collins Christmas Cottage line:

And here are some Mother's Day cards (moms -- don't look!)  This first one is a play on Mother's Day and May Day using My Mind's Eye papers and embellishments.

I played with ombre with these next two cards:
