A Layout and Happy Reflections

Here's a layout I showcased on Tiny Seed last Thursday using the Sassafras Indie Girl line. I just love this line!

On a completely different note, my Mom's Celebration of Life was yesterday and I have to say, despite the circumstances, it was such a terrific day filled with wonderful friends, lots of laughs and love. Thank you to all my dear friends and colleagues who came out to support me. It really meant a lot to me and it was so comforting to know you were all there with me. I know mom was there with us too and must have felt so much love. Sherry led a lovely service and everything flowed so beautifully. We stayed up till 1 am talking and sharing with my family from back East. The stories were just so much fun to hear! My mother had so many special friends too and it was a bit overwhelming seeing 130 people show up to support our family. I feel truly blessed to have met and know so many beautiful people!

Timberline Ranch Retreat 8X8 Album

I started working on my Timberline album this summer and decided that since there is just so much room in this American Crafts album I'm going to keep it as an "on-going" project and keep adding to it as long as Diane keeps hosting these wonderful retreats. I can't wait to go again this November! It is such a fun time! Thanks for stopping by :)

My Reveal over at Tiny Seed and a LO for Mission #25

Well today was my first reveal over at Tiny Seed. I really enjoyed creating the two layouts below to showcase on Yolanda's blog. I absolutely LOVE the Girls' Paperie collection from Paper Girl.

I really like the challenges over at Mission to Create and when I read their most recent one, Mission 25, I was inspired to create the layout of Paul and I leaving the church just after we got married. I used 4 of the 5 concepts, envelope, using the colour beige or cream, doilies, stripes or polka dots and something clear (crystal, transparency or a hole). Thanks for the fun challenge Danielle and the rest of the DT! I haven't scrapped very many of my wedding photos as I didn't start scrapbooking until about 8 years after I got married but I'm really enjoying pulling out some of my wedding pics these days and putting them down on paper. Maybe I'll have to start a new wedding album now! Thanks for stopping by!

Bo Bunny MOM Chipboard Album Project

My friend Yolanda over at Tiny Seed Scrapbooking sent me this adorable chipboard album as a RAK with my last purchase and I couldn't wait to play with it! I used my my Basic Grey Nook and Pantry line to create this pretty little album in honour of my mom. Thanks so much Yolanda for your generous gift. It was very sweet of you!
