to the moon and back


Hey there paper peeps! So tell me... are you a paper hoarder? Ohmygosh I have so much paper and I don't know whyyyyy?!?!  I just love it, it's my weakness.. I realized yesterday as I was "shopping" thru my stash.. I found this super cute moon paper by Studio Calico and was like, how have I never used this?! So. Darn. Cute.

So I used it can you believe it?! This layout is so simple it seriously took me like 8 minutes, but I love it! I did just realize though, that the lighting on the right side of the layout is darker than the left, but that is ok. I'm learning to just, let it gooo. 

Do you ever create things to just gush over your loved ones and tell them how much you love them? I do, I feel like I need to.. just in case.. plus when you see their faces light up it makes it all worth while ;)

Have a lovely day babes! Now go shop your stash!

color crushing


Hey there TGIF woot woot! Do you go through stages where you just love a certain color and get obsessed?! Lately I've been crushing hard core on periwinkle. It's just so pretty! 
We have these darling little wildflowers on the side of the highways here in the midwest, they're called Chicory and I just love them! I wonder how many people drive past them without realizing how striking their color really is? 

Anyhoo, I think these blooms are to blame for my current color crush ;)
You'll probably be seeing it alot more in my papercrafting, at least for the summer time.. 
Isn't this Crate Paper "welcome to Blue Springs" cut out so cute? I kinda wish that boat was mine! 

Yes yes i know. More leaves. It's an obsession I can't help it.. #sorrynotsorry

I love this Bible verse! It reminds me of that song by Brandon Heath called "Wait & See." So encouraging! 

What color are you crushing on lately? 
Have a wonderful weekend dearest ;)

always come home..


Hey there paper peeps, Happy Monday! Where did the weekend go?! Just thought I'd pop on here and post a fun little layout I did about my son. It's that dreaded time of summer when you can feel the "back to school" feeling creeping in... I never understood the parents that were so excited and glad their kids were going back to school. I always dreaded it! Makes me sad, knowing that another school year is upon us, babies are another year older, growing so fast, slowly slipping away, becoming less and less dependent on their mama ;( I don't like it. I miss them already! But. I am also so grateful and excited for their journey's! It's amazing watching your children grow and develop their own personalities, dreams, sense of humor, all of it, I love it! 
Recently I came home and saw my son just chillin on the front patio, reading his Tim Tebow book. My heart felt immediately so happy and content. I so love having him home with me ;) Pretty soon he'll be going back to college and working on that dream of his, "gettin that grind" he says. I'm so excited for him but at the same time I will dearly miss that handsome little face around here.

I absolutely love using my Silhouette Cameo and cutting files from white cardstock! Then I just get creative and add some paints or inks or sprays or whatever I feel like doing to add color! It's so fun! Do you ever do that to yours or do you always cut them from patterned paper? I am so obsessed with leaves lately ohmygosh... and letter stamps! I've been stamping so much lately it makes me happy ;)

This little tag by Maggie Holmes is so darling! Who knew black could be so pretty?! 

What are your thoughts about back to school? Happy or sad? Yay or nay? 

Thanks for stopping in, have a beautiful day dear friends!
