Moon and Back with me & my BIG ideas

Chalkboard is everywhere now and I am still loving it.  I'm still loving chevrons, too.  So this page is basically full of my favorite things:  my adorable baby, bold graphic patterns, saturated color, and a touch of fun texture.  All the paper came from one awesome mambi sheets pad:

Everything you need in one pad?  Couldn't be easier!  And you can make A LOT of pages from a pad.

Hope you're staying warm -- it's cold out there!  No better time to put on an extra sweater and scrap, I say!  :)

Sketch fun with Paper Camellia

I'm normally not a sketch user, but when the amazingly talented and awesome Kristine Davidson put together a sketch for the Paper Camellia blog, I couldn't help but want to join in on the fun.  Here is the sketch for January:

And here is what I did with it:

Am I the only one who thinks that printshop card says "lone" instead of "love"?  My second grade teacher would not approve of that cursive!

beautiful & messy motherhood moments

I'm taking "Inspired Scrapbooking" over at Big Picture Classes this year and this is the first fruit of that endeavor.  I feel like all my pages are very baby-centric right now (well duh, I have a 10 month old, right?) but I want to make effort to explore a little more deeply this year.  And yes, the page is still a little baby-centric, but it's a step in the right direction.  My life pretty much revolves around a tiny human who doesn't say too much (except Duck, Art, Cat, Uht-Oh, and Snack) so there will still be a lot of baby.  

Speaking of classes, this year I'm taking:

1. One Little Word with Ali Edwards
2. Inspired Scrapbooking with Stacy Julian
3. 31 Things with Ali Edwards

and I'm ponding doing "Before Your Story" with Jennifer Wilson.  I think I'm in a sweet spot right now to take classes with Orli having a good, early bedtime and me feeling creative and productive when she's sleeping (and still able to be in bed by 10!) -- and the Ali class ends just before the Jennifer class starts.  And the idea of documenting your life before baby is appealing because it's all baby all the time in this house.

What are you taking this year?  Do you have your OLW picked out?

Paper Camellia Jan 2014 Kit Fun

Hi everyone!  I'm back from my holiday hiatus and today I wanted to share some layouts I made using the lovely Paper Camellia January 2014 Kit!

So many embellishments!  And beautiful colors, too!

This one is my favorite so far.  I love the simplicity.

I'll have more to share a little later -- so stay tuned!
