Just in Our Own Front Yard

Posted by Noey on July 13th, 2015 — Posted in 5 Photos, CREATE, Single Page Layout

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!

For the CREATE journaling challenge this month, we showed off how to use a list. We went to this favorite park 3 days in a row while visiting San Jose so a list was a great way to recap the overall experience.

View the May 2015 CREATE magazine HERE!



This layout was created for the birthday theme challenge for CREATE. I took photos of Calvin at his 1 1/4, 1 1/2, 1 3/4, and 2 year “birthdays” for comparison.  They really turn from babies into little kids during the second year.

Our Hidden Tree Fort

Posted by Noey on May 21st, 2015 — Posted in 3 Photos, CREATE, Single Page Layout




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!
