December Daily Album 2014

December Daily why do I love you so...I always am really inspired by all of the amazing albums everyone is creating this time of year and would love to create a real tangible album, but know digital is the only way for me anymore. So this year I wasn't 100% sure if I was going to create an slum. I had high hopes of finishing up my 2013 album, but life got busy and it fell on the back burner. Sadly I have not been motivated to scrap much of anything lately. I am happy to say this week I have been completely re inspired by all of the AMAZING new goodies released by Digital Design Essentials!

For most of my pages I am using the Dashing Collection.


The colors are my favorite and the collection just screams December Daily to me! Also the new Pocket Sleeve Petit II pretty much made me attempt an album this year...thanks Gina ;)

On my title page I used Ali Edwards reason why free printable.  I just added my own text and color scheme (because if you know me, the color scheme has to flow throughout the whole album, lol!) and called it good. I love the result:


on the back of that page I enlarged one of the Dashing Journaling Cards  and a chipboard piece from the Happy Fall Embellishments:

That is it so far! I am excited to play around more tonight and hope to document a few more magic moments...

Happy 6th Birthday Aiden

Today we are celebrating 6 years of having this sweet boy in our lives!! He is the sweetest little brother, having the best time in Kindergarten, is funny and witty, a wiz at math, loves playing sports and is super competitive, loves all things How to train your dragon right now.

Since I have been a total slacker about scrapping his birthday photos (note to self: do more of those!) 
Here are a few of my favorite layouts about Aiden:










I am lucky to get to share my life with this boy and look forward to what 6 will bring :) Happy Birthday Aiden!!

Revisiting my 2013 December Daily Album

Last year on December 1st I started out my December Daily with much gusto...but after a week or so the excitement died as life got busy and the album, sadly, went unfinished. Lately I have been seeing so many awesome December Daily albums that it has inspired me for 2014 and made me get working on finishing up my 2013 album. I decided to rework the whole thing once I saw Deena Rutters Every Little Bit Cheers Collection! Its an awesome mix of colors, patterns, and all things Christmas...I love it!!!


Here is a look at the first three pages of 2013 reworked with this fabulous new kit:








So far I am super thrilled with the simplicity and am excited once again to see this album through til printing :D

Happy 11th Birthday Drew!

Today we celebrate Drew and his 11th birthday! 

11...how is that possible!? It seems like yesterday we were so very happy to bring him home from the hospital 


and now we are celebrating 11!! This year is going to be awesome, I just know it! Drew is my spunky boy. He is pretty darn hilarious, he is creative and artistic, stubborn and determined, tenderhearted and sensitive, and so much fun all wrapped up in one boy :) 


So in honor of his big day I thought it would be fun to share a few of my favorite layouts about him:

On Sale in the Shop

Halloween is my favorite! It is so much fun to dress up and pretend to be someone else for the day!! My kids all love it...almost as much as Christmas, just not quite ;) 

Because I love Halloween so much and documenting ALL of the wonderful photos each and every year, I have put my Halloween in Review template on sale in the shop for the rest of the month (ends at midnight 10-31) for only $.99! No ticks...that is a treat that is too good to pass up ;)


It is the perfect way to scrap and showcase (I have this layout framed and hanging in our home!) Halloween through the years. This layout documents 10 years of Halloween in our family.

Project Life 2013: Week 39

Hello week 39! The end is near and I am determined to get the 2013 album complete asap!

 To create this weeks pages I used the October Co. Stash from Pixels and Company!


I super loved the color combo this month and all the fun embellishments (hello...so in love with that little typewriter!) just made putting this week together so great! It was hard to narrow it down to just a few cards and elements, there were so many awesome ones to pick from this month!



See you so very soon with week 40 :D
