Boys Will Be Boys


Boys out on a summer walk on a dry day with rainboots, one is missing pants and they’ve stopped to check out a snail. Classic.

We attended the premiere of this film in San Francisco because a friend of ours was one of the executive producers.  Of course I forgot to take photos, so I documented the event with our tickets and a photo from online.  It works!

Just in Our Own Front Yard

Monday, July 13th, 2015

Please stop by and see all of the amazing projects in July’s CREATE Magazine HERE!




We got a summer themed color challenge for the July CREATE magazine. Red, 3 shades of blue, tan, and white. I don’t usually get very many photos for the fourth of July but the red made me think of berries! These are pictures of us picking strawberries in our front yard.  What a treat!

Family Vacation

Thursday, July 9th, 2015

This layout was designed for the May 2015 CREATE magazine.  See it HERE!




For the May issue of CREATE magazine we were asked to show off Paper House and their fun themed papers and embellishments.  I got the Family Vacation set:

Our Hidden Tree Fort

Thursday, May 21st, 2015




This layout was so hard for me! I was challenged by the March issue of CREATE to used chipboard.  I’m not a chipboard user. 😉 But I took my assignment VERY SERIOUSLY and thought long and hard about to do something a little different.  I decided to recreate the railing to our tree fort with chipboard to emphasize the photos. I actually used a needle and stitched rafia through the chipboard for dimension.  Read more about it in the magazine!

Walking through our neighborhood and watching the ducks that live in the fountains.  A favorite activity. This layout was part of the awesome CREATE magazine May 2014 issue.

I loved using this combination of blues.  It was fun to layer them in the foundation of my layout. And it was super easy to find photos to use with this color combination – it’s very versatile.
