GOOD TIMES

Hello friends, it was a beautiful sunny day today, nice to see after 3 days of snow, freezing rain and rain. Such a mix of weather, but spring is on the way.
Today I would like to share a fun summery layout....

Last summer after we were all packed up and ready to leave the cottage, my husband set the timer on the camera and we got a few adorable shots. This is one with funny faces!!!

Here are some closeups....



I used two different washi tapes across the top and added one of my favourite stamps.


Another of my favourite stamps to create the circle behind the photo.

I was inspired by the sketch from Creative Scrappers.


Product List - Core'dinations Black Notebook background paper, Bella Blvd - Hearts, Simple Stories paper. puffy hearts and word stickers by Pinkfresh Studio made exclusively for Citrus Twist Kits and the Alpha are from the dollar store. The washi tapes and clip are from my stash.

More December Daily - Catching up on Project Life Style

Good Morning everyone, it is an eventful one for me this morning as I am starting a new job in a different department. On Friday I said goodbye to some ladies that I have known and worked along side for almost 30 years. This is a really big change and even bigger step for me!

Today I would like to share a couple of Project Life Style cards with you. I got my inspiration from Sketches In Thyme Project Life Style sketches.


My journalling card for Day One of my December Daily.



And here is the sketch #94 from Sketches In Thyme Project Life Style that inspired me.


And this photo shows it tucked in behind my photos.


And without the photos in front...


And here is my card from another sketch...


And the sketch #93 from Sketches In Thyme Project Life Style that inspired me once again. I reversed the layout to suit my photo.


Here is my December Daily page for Day 13.


And with the journalling card tucked in.
