List with Friends: 14

Happy Monday folks!

Hope your week is off to a wonderful start! Here’s my list for today!

I thought I’d list some things I love about Spring. :)

  • The beautiful cherry blossom tree in our front yard that blooms this time of the year. When the wind blows a bit and the leaves fall off the flowers – it’s like it’s snowing. It’s a gorgeous tree and every time I drive by it – I smile.
  • Backyard fun. Whether we’re swinging, blowing bubbles, playing t-ball or doing sidewalk chalk – it’s just so much fun to be out in the sunshine.
  • When the sun is shining and then that gentle cool breeze blows.
  • It’s lighter out longer.
  • The sound of grass being mowed – as long as it’s not happening at like 6 in the morning. ;)
  • The great fruit that is in season, particularly strawberries. :)
  • Easter
  • Driving with the sunroof open
  • Having picnics
  • All of the flowers that bloom
  • Being able to take school outside

Right Now Challenge: Week 14



Hello! SO happy it’s Friday! How about you?

And since it’s Friday – you know what that means – time to post my Right Now Challenge moments. Totally love holding myself accountable here on the blog. It helps so much! ;)

Here’s what I have this week:

  • Jack: “Mama, can I hide in the refrigerator?” Um…
  • Jack was talking to the girl cutting his hair and she asked him if he had any pets, to which he replied that he had a dog named Maggie and her breath is SUPER STINKY.
  • Luke is pulling up on EVERYTHING now. Caylin and Jack didn’t start doing this until they were older. I can’t believe he’s doing it now and he’s not even 8 months old.
  • Luke is obsessed with Maggie.
  • Luke is also obsessed with the stools in my office.
  • Caylin is loving the show “Word Girl” and now she is always asking what words mean. I love it!

That’s it for today! Hope you all are having a great week! Be sure to check back on the blog tomorrow! I’ve got a great freebie for you that you don’t want to miss! Yippeeeee!

Happy Friday, friends! XO!

Project Life® Tuesday


Happy Project Life® Tuesday! And Happy April, too!

No April Fools jokes here! ;)

Here are my page shares for today!


Here’s my double page spread! I’ve got an 8.5×11 page protector in the middle. Both pages are DESIGN A. My go-to. :) I’m using the new HAPPY edition that I got yesterday and also using the HONEY edition, JADE edition and a card from the Childhood Bridgeport edition.


As you can see, I’ve added another Right Now Challenge card. That’s a given. ;) Here’s the left-side of the spread.


That little drawing is something Jack did. He was drawing all of these “monsters” on paper and so I grabbed a 3×4 card from the Honey kit that had enough room for his drawing and told him to draw me one that I could keep forever. And he did and was SO proud of it. I just wrote his name and age on it. Super simple.


That star 4×6 card is one from the new Happy Edition that you can only get on the Home Shopping Network. It’s a super cute kit!


Another card from the Happy edition, a heart embellishment from Freckled Fawn and a photo template by Tracy Larsen.


Love using the date stamp and this is another card from the Happy Edition. :)



Here’s the insert that I used this week. Caylin made Michael a BIG card for his birthday and I wanted to keep it so I slipped it in a layout page protector that I had. :)


The right-side. :)


Caylin LOVES marbles right now. She made a little book about marbles and even drew these marbles and colored a set for herself and one set for me to use in my Project Life®. I love how my kids give me things to add to my album. It’s so sweet and they love doing it!



Well, that’s it for today! Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have a happy day and a happy April ahead!


April OHDEERME Embellishment kit REVEAL


I’m SUPER excited to show you the April OHDEERME embellishment kit that was just released today at Freckled Fawn. Once again, just like every month, the kit is FULL of amazing goodies! What are some of your favorites? It’s so hard to choose, but I am LOVING the square flair, the stamps and the cute puffy stickers! Ack – I love it all!

I also have a bit of exciting news to share, too! A little dream of mine came true a couple of months ago when AesaLina of Freckled Fawn asked me if I would like to design some flair badges for them. I was BEYOND excited and giddy about it and of course said yes! The four flair badges that I designed are available for purchase now as an add-on embellishment! Yay!



You can find out more about the kit, how you can subscribe to it (it’s a must!) HERE!

Happy April, everyone!!!! I can’t wait to create with this kit! I’ll be sure to share what I create here on the blog soon!

Have a great day!
