My 365 March 2015

I completed my 365 March 2015 pages.  Here is the first page with a list of the photos I took for the month and some washi tape and heart stickers.

Then I added the month view from my Collect App and used the Heidi Swapp flowers and Wshi tape for this page.  

I can't wait to see this album when it is completed for 2015.

Thanks for stopping by.

I can't believe we have had such a beautiful spring while the rest of the country is still stuck in winter mode.  I love the beautiful cherry tree blossoms and snapped this picture with my Iphone.

I embossed the patterned paper with a doily embossing folder from Maggie Holmes to add some texture to this layout.

I also cut the butterflies from the patterned paper and added them as embellishments.

So pretty.

Spring has Sprung

Spring has sprung - at least in our neck of the woods.  Scrapbook Nerd is sharing some fun spring projects this week on the forum.

 Spring to me is all about the flowers! I decided to make some fun paper flowers with my Silhouette machine.  I ended up making a few projects with the flowers.  First up a cute little bouquet.

I made three larger flowers and added buttons to the centre then added them into a little container.

My second project was some refrigerator magnets.  

I made them using Clothes Pins covered with patterned paper and then I added a smaller version of the flowers to the top.

I had one of the larger flowers left so I made this really quick and easy card.

I used the Dear Lizzy Serendipity collection papers and just added it to a piece of patterned paper with some words on it.

I love how pretty the flowers turned out and they will definitely bring a little spring inside my house.

Thanks for stopping by.

April Planner Love

I thought I would share a few of my April Color Crush Planner Pages today. I am really loving having a paper planner again - My husband calls it my analogue calendar.

This is the April calendar at a glance - a little Washi tape and an Amy Tangerine heart clip.

Week of March 30th: I used some Crate Paper Journey chipboard and matched my Washi tape to it.

For the week of April 6th I used my Crate Paper stash again and added some fun stickers from the Kiss Kiss collection.

Thanks for stopping by.

When I had my first child I joined a local baby group and I am so glad I did, we are all still friends after 16 years.  All of our kids will be turning 16 in the next few weeks so we decided to get together for a night out.  

It was so fun and I loved hearing about all their adventures as it had been a while since we got together.  I can't believe it's been 16 years.

I used the Crate Paper Notes and Things collection for this layout.  Can I just say this has to be one of my most favorite collections.

I am so thankful for these lovely ladies!

Thanks for stopping by.

More Dance Mom Planner Pages

I am trying hard to get all my Dance Mom planner pages done so I can get organized but it's funny how life always gets in the way.  

For these pages I printed out the email informaion by pasting it into a preset size template I created in Microsoft Publisher.  Then I printed them and added them to some patterned paper and added some Washi tape to pretty them up.

We also had our first competition and they did amazing.  First place for Musical Theatre and he competed against himself in Hip Hop and got first and third place.  All three routines made top ten overall for the whole competition and his Coed Hip Hip placed third overall.  So proud of him.

I love that I can document his whole year in one place and I am thinking of ordering another Color Crush Planner and turning it into a Dance Mom Mini Album at the end of the year and transferring all these pages as well as adding some photos and programs from the year.

I am so very lucky and count my blessings for these three boys everyday! 

I love when people ask if they can take a photo of us we don't get many with all of us in them.

I love when a layout comes together like this one did.  So easy and fun!
