I really wish I was planning a beach trip so I would be able to use this adorable kit. Maybe I'll have to have some of you send me your beach pictures so I can scrap them for you, haha! ;)

I love all the cute critters and the fun colors of this kit. It just screams summer to me!! I love the bright pops or orange and yellow with the muted sand and water, I love everything about it.

They made some changes over at PBP for the Pickle Barrel and now you can get 10-packs, 6-pack and 4-packs with the new kits. Here is a peak at Fayette's 10 and 6 pack! {you need the 10 pack for sure!}

Get the kit HERE!

Here are my pages: {look how little those kids are!!}

I love all of Fayette's kits, but some just speak to me more than others. I knew as soon as I saw this one that I had to use these photos from Downtown Chicago that my amazingly talented photographer friends took of me. You can see more of them HERE, and HERE. I love the soft colors with the beautiful scenery of the city.

I wrote this journaling on Sunday when I was having a particularly good day.  I was feeling full of love and light. Tuesday night I came home to a very upset child after a stressful day a work and all "heck" broke loose. I cried for hours, I was angry and sad. I miss my mamma. I'm lonely. I can't help my son because he needs to do this on his own, and as fate would have it, I needed to post these pages right during the moments that I was struggling the most. I didn't feel hopeful or joyful. BUT, I pulled up these pages and remembered the peace and joy I felt on Sunday. I decided right then that I wasn't going to let a bad night override those feelings. Yes, I still felt sad, yes I still miss my mamma, but I am trying to see myself through His eyes, I am trying to find peace and joy in the midst of trials.....and some days, it really is just much harder than others!! :)

You can get this beautiful kit HERE on sale for a limited time!

I don't really love Valentines Day. It's always been one of those holidays that I had expectations of having something special, or getting something special or doing something special....and more times than not things did not work out, or we didn't do anything, or I didn't get anything....and it was just one of those days that led to disappointment. Whose with me?

This year I was prepared for nothing. No flowers, no candy, no special treats....and then I went to work, and my boss gave me flowers and one of my good friends brought me flowers and a cold diet coke from McDonald's - she speaks my love language - and another friend brought me chocolates. What could have turned into a hard, disappointing day was a gentle reminder that my Father in Heaven loves me and knows that there are many people in my life who love me and care about me.

So, in a much better spirit, Happy Valentines Day!! Tell all of those in your life that you love them, it just might make their day!!! And then scrapbook it with this CUTE kit from Fayette Designs called Two Hearts!! I LOVE this quote, one of my all time favorites!! #iloveyoumore

I love this snarky, smart-alec, funny boy of mine! Happy Valentines Day!!

HERE is the kit! and HERE is the paper pack.

I finished all of my monthly pages for my 2017 album tonight. I'm not sure why these pages are so hard for me to do, but I almost always leave them to the end of the year and have to go back and finish them a year later. This year I decided to just do a collage of photos from the month with a list of things I remember about the month. I love how they turned out.

I used 2017 In Review Bundle by Studio Basic from Sweet Shoppe Designs.

I've been working a lot on trying to finish up my 2017 Album. I was hoping to get it done before tax season started, but that is not going to happen since tax season started today. We are getting a slow start because the forms aren't ready, so I'm thinking I might be able to get it finished up this weekend. I finished both of my trips to Utah, and all of my Christmas pages and I LOVE how they turned out.

My kits are from all over the place and some of them are no longer available.
