small wonder

Here is another layout that I recently found when I was unpacking.  I had nearly forgotten about it!

This photo of my daughter, now age 13, was taken about 12 years ago.  I think this layout is one of my favorites -- I love those pinwheels!

All of the patterned paper on this layout is Bella Blvd.  The alphas are as well.

The tape (directly underneath the photo) is an older product by Pink Paislee.  Still love that stuff!  I pleated it and stitched right through it.

The buttons are from my stash -- I have a huge stash of buttons.  The doily is just a plain ol' doily that I bought in the baking aisle of a craft store.

I made the banner by cutting teeny little triangles out of Bazzill cardstock

Don't you just love those little pinwheels?  And they are so easy to make!  I'll probably be making more of those in the very near future. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope to see you again next time.

my girl

Last week I put together a layout for the first time since moving into our new home.  It felt so good.  I didn't use my paper trimmer for the challenge over at Noel Mignon.  And I used the sketch over at Elle's Studio.

*Edited to add:  I'm sorry that the photos look blurry and/or pixilated.  I understand that blogger is having some issues with this lately.  The photos look fine on my computer (before uploading to blogger). I'll see what I can do to fix this. Thank you!

October Afternoon's Sidewalk collection is one of my most favorite recent collections and it was so fun to finally use it in a layout!  I've been using it exclusively in my Project Life pages, but this is different because I can use the bulky items -- which I love!

Loving the My Mind's Eye Wood Banners!  I can imagine using these in all of my projects.

I used some Elle's Studio tags and I really need to replenish my supply!  Their tags are so fab!

For the title, I used Pink Paislee's Wood Shop in Timber and Making Memories Mini Shimmer Alphas.
