Lake Mini

Happy Tuesday all! B here to share a fun project I completed over the weekend. 
I am going to share part of it today and the rest next week. 
I wasn't sure how the Jenni Bowlin rub-on would take to the canvas....but, it worked beautifully! I love it! 

got into my vintage button stash! 

I also had some misting fun! 

The fun vintage-style journaling and ephemera cards are from 7Gypsies.

Below: Andy, Sarah and Austin just relaxing outside the house. 

JB papers found here
I will be back next week to show you the rest of my mini.

Boys and Girls by Lynnette Davis

My Angel
Have you ever had someone come into your life and just change things up SO much? Spin things totally around, smack you in the face and give you a reality check.....someone who didn't even mean to, but because of them, you have become a better person because of it. ??? Well, this is what happened when this little girl popped into my life suddenly. 

This is my first born.....my angel.  Some may say that I was too young to have her and some may say that I just wasn't ready.....but I feel in my heart that God had bestowed this little angel down upon me for a reason.  It's funny how we can become a totally different person when we are given a bigger responsibility.  I feel like I grew up the right way because of her and matured into the woman I was supposed to become.

I've heard a lot of people give the advice: "Don't ever change! Always be yourself!" But when your self just isn't good enough and when your self is going down the wrong track, I just don't think those statements should be applied in ones life.  There is always room for improvement, I say.  If that means something or someone for that matter, can change things for the better, so be it!

My Angel changed my life and instead of saying "She turned things upside-down, I'm going to say that she turned things rightside-up."  I'm a better person all around because of her!

I used lots of products that I am just still SO in love with at BlueMoonScrapbooking on my layout.  Check out the gorgeous Girls Paperie by Margie papers, Prima flowers and Websters Pages sticker alphas TODAY!!!

I say it's OK.  It must be because U R a boy. 
Those of you who are sisters to brothers know that boys get away with a lot, right? Maybe that is why they think as men, they still can get away with stuff. ;-) Hmm...now there's something to ponder!

I use this hyperactive attitude and personality my little boy has as an excuse sometimes....that he's just being a boy.  Am I setting him up the wrong way for the future?  I guess time will tell.

I LOVE Vintage mixed with Modern elements.  Check out all that BlueMoonScrapbooking has to offer in this area and don't forget to check out the new VINTAGE LOVE products from Glitz Design while you're at it!

I define who I am...

Happy Tuesday all! B here. How was everyone's weekend? I had a 3 day weekend and got ALOT done, so that was great!

Today I want to share what has now become my favorite layout. The journaling/title says "I define who I am. You don't get to."

This is a phrase that I had come up with a couple of weeks ago while reflecting how far I had come in the last 7 years. This phrase totally describes me and what I have accomplished.  Yet, I really didn't know what I was going to do with that phrase at the time, but I knew I would think of something soon. lol 

Over the weekend, I decided to make some wall art with that phrase for my girl cave.  {green button above is vintage, but you can find similar ones here}
{pink button below is from my stash}

Tile Alphas and most paper by: Girls' Paperie by Margie
{flower button below: from my vintage stash}
Now, doesn't it look like I have already framed this project?! I haven't!! That vintage white frame is actually the base paper I used. Even in the pic above, it looks 3-D, doesn't it? I love this paper! It is by Fancy Pants and it's called Roadshow Grocery List.
chipboard butterfly: Dear Lizzy
feathers: KandCompany

I hope you guys have enjoyed my new favorite project!

Handlebar Mustache by Lynnette Davis

Do you like a man with a mustache? 
Well howz about a girl with a mustache? 

Moustaches are all the rage these days and I for one think they are super cool too!  This handlebar mustache that I used in my layout reminds me of circus sideshow acts. Like the strong barbell guy and beared lady. 

I think they are SO much fun that I even decorated my daughter's bedroom mirror with a moustache rubon.

 In photo: My younger cousin and her friends. 

I am absolutely LOVING the new Pink Paislee 365 DEGREES Line and I know that you will too!
