Here's a layout

The rub on "Looking Back" is from my vintage stash....

I was inspired by the Paislee Press design team...trying to keep everything very minimalistic.  The pic was taken when my boy was 4 and my girl was 6....a mere 11 years ago.

The picture was taken at Seattle's Pike Place Market.  A really popular place for Washingtonian's and tourists.  Do you see the Washington State Ferry in the background?  I remember that was when I had the wonderful opportunity to stay home with the kids for about 2 years...the hardest job...e v e r! I took the kids on a field trip downtown on a day that the girl didn't have school.

Next up is a card:

It uses the Echo Park paper/sticker...Studio Calico butterflies...Freckled Fawn washi....and a punch from a Starbucks coffee sleeve:)

  23. I really love your CAS layout! And your washi tag with woodgrain paper! Thanks for the fun giveaway! My fav is definitely the washi tape, too!

  24. Your kit is amazing and those EP paps are some of my fave right now! I can't get enough of that chevron woodrgain print! My fave by far! You embraced the space on the LO and love that you let the photo shine with a touch of color from the pink print paper. Love the card with stitched woodgrain buterflies. Those SC cuties are waiting to be used n my stash and think I need to break that sticker seal and use after seeing your fab card. Love the corrugated cardboard at top! Okay, I am rambling. Sorry.

  25. Man, picking a fave is HAAARRRRD!! The good kind, of course. Just when I thought I wanted the Shut the Front Door stamps, I saw these: Junkyard Findings Small Typo Bulbs Embellishments from Prima ~ whoa!!

  27. Love those butterflies - they look awesome against the turquoise!
