pretty purple

I love how these black and white photos turned out with the purple. This was a fun layout to make and it came together pretty quickly. We found this really old car when we were hiking in Colorado State Forest, so we took some fun pictures. I was trying to figure out when we took these, and it was before we were married, so over four years ago. Wow! Times flies. I can't wait for summer and more hiking!

paper: lovely lilac, black, white
purple flower, buttons, letter stickers


cinnamon rolls

Just perfect for a Saturday morning! I've been wanting to make cinnamon rolls from scratch for a looong time and I finally got around to it today. But, I used my bread machine for the dough, so does that really count as "from scratch?" Either way, it was the perfect morning....sitting with my husband looking at the mountains out our window sipping coffee and eating yummy cinnamon rolls! I hope your day is wonderful!


another one

Good morning! Here's another card with the same layout, just different colors. They are so fun to make and I can use some of that patterned paper I have laying around. You can make them for any occasion too! This is a sympathy card. Which one do you like better?

stamps - oh so lovely, so many sayings
ink - creamy caramel, chocolate chip
paper - chocolate chip, pattern paper, creamy caramel
markers (bashful blue, creamy caramel), ribbon, word window punch


I did it!

I finally started a blog. This will be a place to share all my creations. I think I will start off with a card that I made yesterday. I love the soft colors and the layout. Enjoy!
