I was digging through old pictures at my parents house and came across this one which is one of my favorites.  I can remember pulling two chairs together in the driveway, out in the sun, with my awesome heart shaped glassesAhh the life...

This was a different color scheme for me but I enjoyed it.  I kept a neutral background with a white grid patterned paper.  Some simple embellishments, a tag with some twine, a few wood veneers, some enamel dots and mist.  Done!

I liked the idea of a title with capital and lowercase letters to bring out that playful feel.  Those letters from Jillibean Soup are some of my favorites.

Thanks for stopping by!

I've been in a good creative mind lately and am putting together some of my favorite pages.  Black and this orange-yellow color are one that I don't really do often but I love how it turned out and think you'll see it again.  I've been very into black on my pages lately and love the contrast it creates.  

 Ever since I took the More Happy Little Moments class at Studio Calico a few months back I have loved book pages.  For the hearts I cut out heart shapes and added a wood veneer on top as well for more dimension.  Layers, enamel dots and black mist splatters, some of my favorites lately.  I also added the strip of black washi tape on top to add some weight to the page, black works well for this.

 A closer look at those book page hearts with wood veneer.  You can also see from this angle the dimension from the title "Routine" since I overlapped a few of the letters.  I die cut the title with my Silhouette Cameo using the American Crafts POW Glitter paper in silver.

I love putting clusters of embellishments together.  Little tags and clips with die cuts and some washi, just fun to add to any page.

Thanks so much for following along and stopping by <3
