FInally got Everyday Eclectic, and then...

right when I was about to sit down and scrap with it...the electricity goes out! :( The whole neighborhood went out till midnight. It was almost 8pm when it went out. There was still good light outside, so what did I do? I went outside to scrap! For about 15 minutes...but it was enough to at least get an idea of where I wanted to go with the LO. That was friday.
So Saturday I woke up ready to play! Here's what I made:
Papers- Everyday Eclectic by Echo Park, wood veneer cameras & arrow - Studio Calico,
Tape- Bella Blvd, ink- Jenni Bowling in Fountain Pen,
twine &bling from my stash

Thats me! I finally finished my M.A. in Early Childhood Education. I was lucky to meet some great people in the same program and we got to graduate together. I love that the color of my hood was the same as the blue in this collection ;) That worked out! 

I grounded my photos with a basic black line in the background (just a scrap of black cardstock) and with the tapes and banner on the bottom corners ;) 

Here's GG's adventure this week: 

Blog award! :)

The very sweet Joy at ...Wow...Did you make that? awarded me this: 

I hope you visit her :) 
I found out through Joy that Liebster is the German word for favorite or dearest. 
How sweet is that?!

Once you get this award you're supposed to pass it on to 3-5 other blogs who have less than 200 followers.

These are some of my favorite blogs with less than 200 followers:
 Donna at The Crafty Corgy
Nicola  at Sunshine Reflections
Sue at La Femme Knitkita
Stacy at Stacy Kay Creations
Tonya at A Life Revamped

These are awesome blogs that I truly enjoy.
Hope you get a minute to visit ;)

A challenge!

This collection is an old one. Chloe's Closet by Making Memories. I love it, and have tried to use it a few times, but it's been very challenging for me. I finally got one LO done and I'm fairly happy with it :)
This week, I'm joining glitter girl's challenge at two peas in a bucket.

Here's Glitter Girl's challenge this week: 

Thanks for stopping by my blog :)

Catching up!

I have an album for each trip that we take. I also have everyday albums. 
The everyday albums seem to fill up so fast, and my stacks of travel photos just sit there! 
Not fair! I had like 3 LO's for our trip to France 2 years ago! 
I decided it was time to catch up, so I pulled out DCWV's World Traveler stack and got to work!
This was a couple weeks ago before I knew I was on the design team! I just love their papers! 
This particular stack does a lot of the background layering for you, so its a time saver if you want a quick page or a more layered page. Either way, some of the work is done for you already! 
It gives you a starting point :) It also has a lot of pages that can be cut up and used for embellishments. I love to do that.

Thanks for looking ;)
