Layout Monday!

Hi Everyone! Happy Monday!! I had the pleasure of being the Guest Designer at 3 Scrappy Boys in February and I want to share a few of my projects. 3 Scrappy Boys has a super fun forum and there are always great challenges going on. Go check out their kits, too!! There are lots of great new products in their kits.

My first layout is done using their Trio Kit. This kit had papers from 3 different lines and I used some My Mind's Eye papers for this layout. I adore this photo of my daughter and her girlfriends on the last day of kindergarten.

Friendship Is Beautiful:



Such fun colors in these papers!! Perfect for a layout celebrating friendship. I made this card by cutting out flowers using my cricut, distressing them, then layering then. I hand cut the leaves, distressed and then added them to the flower.

Hello Card: 5x5 square


I am still loving my apron lace punch. I use it all the time!! That's it for me today. I am getting my scrappy stuff ready for a girls scrap weekend, I am leaving on Thursday. I cannot wait for some girl time and some scrappy time!!

Thanks for stopping by, friends!

I wanna go on a "girl scrap weekend!" There's a new retreat place near me that I totally want to check out!

Your pages are lovely! I like that punch... I do NOT need another scallop punch (or do I?)
