Dream of Big Things - Your Memories Here

Hi Everyone,Today to share with you a project I made using the gorgeous Wishes and Dreams collection from Prima.  The soft yellows and blues in this collection, mixed with bits of brown the papers are just stunning.

Of course I had plenty of gorgeous flowers to add thanks to my Prima Flower grab bag with this photo of my lovelies at Hampton Court.  
Things are a bit crazy around here right now, so sorry if I am a bit sporadic with my posts.  Thanks for stopping by.

Wishful Thinking

Hi everyone!  Today I want to share with you a project I made using the beautiful Wishful Thinking papers from Prima Marketing.  The Wishful Thinking papers are full of the most gorgeous colors perfect for all those special moments in your life...and in this case, perfect for my teen.

Of course, with the gorgeous blooms from my Your Memories Here Prima Flowers Grab Bag, I had plenty of gorgeous flowers to choose from to accompany my project.
A few of my favorite Prima Wood Icons were added for texture.  I just love the feel these add to my projects and don't think I can scrap without them these days.
 and of course i couldn't resist adding a few of the Wishful Thinking Metallic Gems.

All these projects are currently available in the Your Memories Here store.  Be sure to check  them out.

Oh, and btw...these photos are from our afternoon spent at Kensington Palace in London.  The palace was gorgeous and the garden even more so.  What I would do to have that beautiful of a yard, or even one 1/2 that size.    sigh...I guess it is good to be the future king.  lol    Unfortunately we didn't see William, Catherine, or the new baby.

New Adventure

Hi everyone!  Today I am a bit you may or may not know, we were actually in Europe for a couple of weeks, couple that with a master bath remodel, and starting this years school....I guess you can understand why i am a bit late today.

Phil and I at Versailles.....Gorgeous.  Did a behind the scenes, a private rooms tour.  It was fabulous.  Very informative and gave us an opportunity to skip the lines and crowds.  love
Love touring up and down rivers, you know we love to cruise.  lol  This time on the river Siene.
Westminster Bridge looking back at Parliament.  Trying to be in more photos.  
La Tour Eiffel.
Hampton Court with my man.  Sorry that he is in the shadows.  sigh Turning the camera over to others means some funky composition and lighting.  
Hanging at the Tower of London with the BeefEaters.  Such a fun day and so educational...yes, we are counting our vacation as a field trip.  lol

Just a few photos from our adventures!  Needless to say, we had a great, one we won't soon forget.  And one I know you will see many more photos of as I begin to create scrapbooks.

In other news, I just made a Facebook, if you like you can follow me over there.  Thinking I need to work on building my business.

Celebrate - Your Memories Here Tutorial

Hi everyone!  Today I want to share with you a shabby chic layout I made using the gorgeous Hope Chest papers from Pink Paislee.

But before I share the layout itself, how about a quick video on creating a crackled wood background for your projects?

Super easy and fun.  With the wood background, a bit of mist and some gorgeous flowers from my Prima grab bag I created this....

Ainsley and a couple of friends at her birthday party.  I added a few lace doilies as well as some lace to complete the look.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hello - The Sampler

Hi everyone!  Today I want to share with you my final project using the August kit, Royal Birthday Wishes, from the Sampler.  I am not usually much of a card maker, but today.....

I used bits of washi tape from a previous kit as well as lots of the stickers in this month's kit to create this special card.

Be sure and grab your August kit before they are all gone.
