Project Life... January

I finally got around to scrapping some of the pictures from January for my Project Life book.  I am slowly getting the first of the year done, but now falling behind on current months.  I often remind myself how glad I will be someday when I'm old and senile (like next week :) that I have taken the time to simply document our life and times... What are you doing with all your photos?  Buy Adobe Photoshop Elements and take a class at Jessica Sprague and get them printed and into books-you will be so glad you did! Products by Carina Gardner & Becky Higgins- available at Jessica

Some sweetness...

After all that mud!  Sheesh.  Boys....  It gets messy my friends.  Here are some of my layouts that are a little softer, a little more feminine.  TFL!

NRJ - new doodle doo flower brushes, Carina Gardner distress pastel papers & alpha rub on.

I adore this paper by Pink Paislee!  It is from their "Sweetness" kit.  Also used LivE loopie love brushes.  All available right now at!

August designer is Pink Paislee

Remember how I thought I would have so much more time to scrap when the kiddos went back to
school?!  Ha!  Still working on that, but here is one I love....  My designated designer for Aug. at Jessica Sprague is Pink Paislee.  There products are amazing.  I have used them for years - they make a lot of paper products, so even before I was a digi scrapper I knew who they were and often bought their stuff.  They are a family owned business out of Kansas City, Mo and the motto is " our products aren't manufactured, they're crafted".  You can check out their website at and purchase their digital products at

Several of my past posted  layouts have been from Pink Paislee -" Mother's Day,  Breakfast with the Teacher, Happy Days, and Simple Joys".  You can tell I really love their products.  Here is a new layout from their kit called Shabby Sugar land which will be available on 8/27-  more from Pink Paislee (yes, that is the way they spell it) and others soon!

More Project Life layouts...

Here are a few quick layouts I did for my Project Life book.  I find if I can get these done quickly I am better able to document the details as the longer I wait my brain doesn't always remember all the details... Anyone else have that problem?! This is the beauty of Project Life.  Did you know you can buy the templates and digital products at Jessica Sprague?  Go do it today, you'll be so glad to finally do something with all those photos you take!   TFL!

Clipboards - Teacher gifts

Over the years, I've made these clipboards and given them as gifts and/or sold them at different boutiques.  The ones I make for teachers are always really popular, and I've given one to the boys
teachers every year- yes, I bribe them with gifts!  They use them everyday and always tell me how
they love them because they are so easy to spot on their (sometimes) messy desks or in a pile of
papers.  Anyway, this year I had some of my digital papers printed and made them.  The papers and elements are by Design by Dani.  This awesome kit is called School Daze, which is exactly how I feel considering we are starting next week!   Dani's awesome digi products can be found at
