New Layout

I just completed this layout this morning! I made it for the "Last Scrap Addict Standing" contest at It is now week two of the contest and tomorrow is when we find out which contestants will be eliminated and what the new challenge is!

I used K&Co Little Wonders paper and embellishments, plus some of the new Prima Obsessions flowers on this layout. I journaled about how my little one is already a month old in the photo!

More Serendipity

So today I thought I'd post a closer look at one of my most recent paper gift bag albums! I made it using a color combo I have not really seen anyone else using very often, especially on Ebay. I used the Serendipity paper pack from Close to My Heart, it was a special promotion and is no longer available! I really liked the dark blues combined with the light blues, tans, and brown! I had definitely combined baby blue and chocolate before- but not navy blue- and I am really liking this combo!

I have changed how I make my paper gift bag albums too- I am now using the same technique for the binding as Rainedakota (Tonya Strange) uses for her Designer Purse Albums™, it is stitched and very strong! I have also started tying ribbon to ALL of the handles instead of just the front or just the front and back handles- it definitely gives a fluffier look!

I am listing this album on Ebay tonight, so be sure to search PFOP to find my book and many other wonderful projects from the Pocket Full of Papers gals!
And of course I had to share another cute pic of Katelynne! I can't wait til the weather is nice enough to get some good shots of her outside in the natural light!

Today I have some news to share! I have officially joined the Pocket Full of Papers (PFOP) Ebay design team! I am excited to start working with all the talented girls on this team! In fact, I am so excited that I already have three albums to list!! LOL! Here's a sneak peak:

Sooo... last night I was up pretty much all night with the baby! It seemed like I got to take short naps here and there but was up pretty much all night. I finally got her sleeping pretty good in the swing at about 6 am, then my husband called at 7 to say he forgot to take the trash out to the street (it's our trash day today) and so I had to go out in the lovely crisp morning air to take it out.... luckily I was able to crawl back into my warm bed and get one more hour of sleep before both kids woke up!

Then... I did a very bad thing. My sleep deprived self craved sugar so I ate a candy bar for breakfast! That's gotta help get me going for a little while right? At least it's a sunny day so I can take photos of those albums I made later :) And SHHHHH! Don't tell my husband that I had a candy bar- we're supposed to be on a d-i-e-t!

Here's a little something I scrapped for myself too:

I made it using the Close to My Heart Serendipity paper pack plus a few prima flowers. It is a also based on a Page Maps sketch! I am going to make a Mom2 page sometime when I get more time to scrap and have not been awake all night!
