Workspace Wednesday

Marcy Penner is doing a fun, Workspace Wednesday, post on her blog each week and invites you to join along and give us a sneak into your space.  I personally love this and got to play along today.

A peak at a little organizing on my built in shelves.  

Make sure you stop by Marcy's blog and link up your space too!

I love my little Tucker especially in his sweater in winter time.  Red and aqua are a big favorite color combination of mine right now and I never even thought I would like them together.  The hello friend was a little piece cut from a Pebbles sheet of patterned paper mixed with a small manila shipping tag tied with some simple twine.

I really love the brightness of a white cardstock background along with my little pup in his red sweater!  I love the tone on tone look of a simple title and thought it worked perfectly here with all the red and aqua papers and accents.  

An up close look of my mist splatter's.  I started adding enamel dots to the splatters in the same color and I love the dimension it creates.

Here's another view to see the dimension in the papers and little embellishments.

Thanks for following along <3

Everyone has a happy place right?  Mine has always been Islamorada in the Florida Keys.  I've been going here since I was a little kid and my dad and his family went all while growing up too so it's pretty much a family place in our eyes.  This layout is a simple reflection on the beauty of the ocean...I love the ocean oh so much and my heart is always longing to be there, maybe someday...

Lots of layers including the amazing American Crafts POW Glitter Paper in silver I can never have too many sheets of this in my stash and think I'll die if they ever stop making it.  I just realized how much I love that aqua/mint mixed with red, talk about a "pop!"  I have so much washi in my stash and figured I should start learning new ways or at least make an effort to add it to my pages so I lined the bottom with a nice gray stripe, love the boldness.  A lot of the layers were from my Studio Calico kit this month too, always fun.  A few splatters here and there of Mister Huey in Inky Black and a little sticker from Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm and a Captured Die Cut from Chic Tags, you can't go wrong.

I've also come to the conclusion I have a love for these nice thick wood veneer arrows, love love love.  I made my title nice and simple and stuck with the gray color so it didn't draw attention away from the photo and all those layers of goodness.

A little tag placed on top of the right corner of my photo tied with twine, a star (who doesn't love stars, I think I have an addiction...) and a little Studio Calico paper clip flag.

Thanks so much for stopping by <3

Sneak Peak

I know I've been quiet on here lately, sorry.  I've been getting caught up on Project Life and for some reason I don't really share those all that much because a lot of the times I'm trying to get caught up.  I'm fully caught up now and think for this week I may go back to a double spread for the week, we'll see....

As for layouts, I had fun last night creating this layout but it was dark and I couldn't take any pictures in good lighting so tonight.  Here's a peak though, lots of fun layers, aqua, red and grey which I never realized how much I love!

Thanks for following along, come back tomorrow for the full reveal.
