And I will bury my soul in a scrapbook, with the photographs there and the moths.

Busy busy but not too busy for ME time!

I have been up to my neck busy these last 2 weeks at my LSS, redoing the layout of the store... but I still managed to set aside time to make some layouts! =)

For the first one, it's my daughter Nicole in February at the lake in town. She loves to explore areas and she came across this rusted wheel thingy lol and sat on it and made for a perfect photo. The papers are Kaisercraft's "Duchess" Collection. Such pretty papers.


I used one of Zva's new release corner pearl bling in taupe, added the perfect touch to the photo. All their bling is beautiful!!!!!

I took out my Glimmer mist, I went on a GM buying rampage yet rarely take them out..figures! right? =) I glimmer misted the title to make it pop alittle more.



And lastly, of course gotta show off those gorgeous gorgeous Prima flowers, especially the sheer Caravan Collection.


Now on to the 2nd layout. My studly little son, Jayden. He spotted someone doing something and just focused on them for the longest time. The sun was shining on him and I loved the way it showed in the photo. He's such a little man.

I used the K&Co. "Blue Awning" Collection.

Used one of the big corner Zva pearl bling, those big corner pieces are BEAUTIFUL! They're so unique looking.

The flower I made myself out of fabric. I wanted to recreate one I had bought and it turned out pretty well! I just cut a cardstock circle the size I wanted my flower to be then cut out an inch wide, 16 inch long strip of fabric and started twisting it and going in a circle around my cardstock and topped it off with coordinating pearls. So easy to do.

Hope you all have a GREAT weekend. Mine will be pretty relaxing. Might do alittle more scrappin..=) Thanks for visiting!
