HaPPy MoNDay

Happy beginning of Easter week.  Nicole arrives from Switzerland Thursday so we are especially joyful this week.  Today I’m featuring a kit by Creativity by Crystal called Sweet Summertime and a free template from Jessica Sprague.com. The friendship stamp is by Stampin’ Up.


I used Sweet Summertime last week to make a page.  This time I used the Sweet Summertime Paper Pack 2 which is full of cheerful patterns. The template is a freebie by Kari Holt and can be found HERE at Mouse Paper Lovely, another Jessica Sprague blog.



Have a Great Week.

One Fine Day

It really is one fine day. The sun is shining.  No kidding.  What a rarity.  It just makes me feel so good to have a little sunshine after weeks, okay months, of grey skies.  In keeping with our theme for today Jopke released a new kit, One Fine Day. It includes 6 patterned and textured papers as well as 13 elements ... floral elements, confetti, butterfly with and without shadow, tag, swirly, button, and word art.  It is 30% off at Design House Digitals!



I made two pages with the kit.  First is Alex trying on a new pair of shoes from Aunt Nicole. Isn’t it every little girl’s dream to have pink sparkly shoes?

The Right Pair of Shoes

Next, Alex gave me a grin is this photo which is full of sugar and spice!

Sugar and Spice

I hope you have a bunch of fine days.

Sweet Summertime I WISH

Enough already, let’s see some sunshine.  I realize that Seattle is just an adjective for “rain” but winter has overstayed its welcome. I need sunshine.  In recognition of that need I played with Crystal's {Sweet Summertime} Quick Page #9 and Crystal's {Sweet Summertime} ElementsThey are the ideal kits for this photo of the kids going on a safari last summer or at least using Grandpa and Grandma’s safari hats.  You can find both of these terrific items in Crystal’s store at Jessica Sprague.com.

It is the artist's business to create sunshine when the sun fails.

So thanks Crystal for creating a little sunshine on this page.

Martin showed me a bunch of his super stunts last summer-what an athletic boy.


Cosmo Cricket’s Half-way CafĂ© is another fun kit.  The title alone is just the cutest.


This is one of my favorite quotes from Connor.  Besides being so dang cute he is just so insightful!
