East Coast West Coast

After being a California girl her whole life, my sister moved to Maine almost 2 years ago to start her family and a new life with her husband. And while I miss her like CRAZY, i'm super proud of her making decisions for herself and doing what she thinks is best for her and her family. Plus, I have a super cool place to visit on the East Coast whenever I want to. I'm thinking of doing this marathon some day, The Maine Marathon. And who knows, maybe that little one called the Boston Marathon. But I need to heal my ankle first before my dreams get ahead of me.

This is one of my first projects for Scrapbook Express. I used the Ad Lib papers by Bo Bunny and decided to document the new divide in our family.

I love the bright colors of these papers! They are perfect for scrapping pretty much any subject. And I broke out my Accents Essential Cricut cartridge for those butterflies. One of my favorite cuts.

Hope you're having a good week. We've been really busy with either softball or baseball everyday in the evening. I'm glad my kids love it because it's a whole lot of work!! I will be back with some more fun projects I've been working on for Scrapbook Express. Come on over to the message board. We have new challenges every week and a big challenge every month!! See you over there!
