Let's get this week started!

GOOOOD Monday Morning!


I hope everyone had a GrEaT weekend. We sure did. Our local winery (which we support very heavily, LOL) had their annual Blues Fest and it was a blast! I got to hang out with some work friends, too, and I just love that I get to be surrounded by such amazing people all the time.

I wanted to share some layouts I created with the May Spice Kit over at Scrapdango. I can't stop making these ribbons and the fun felties in the kit were so perfect for one on this card.





And next up is a layout I created about life right now. Remember in Sex in the City when Charolotte doesn't run when she is pregnant? She talks about being so happy that she is terrified of losing it all? That really struck me when I watched in watched it the other night. And it's so true...but that is no reason not to do what we love, to not be happy, and to not celebrate.

So this layout is about Happiness: a Destination. Something that I am always on a journey to achieve.




Have a great week!!!

Hey hey Ellen!! What fabulous projects, girl! I am in LOVE with that card! So simple, so elegant, such amazing style! That ribbon is fabulous!
Awesome layout, too. Love the subject and love all the bold pattern and framework. So cool to do a page focusing just on the theme and the journaling. Love this!
