Time for some layouts!

Hello there! I hope you've all been having a fabulous week. :) I've got a couple of layouts to share with you. I created this first one a few days ago and would have posted it sooner but the RAIN wouldn't go away so I could take any pictures! The sun finally came out today though thankfully...

Supplies: My Mind's Eye Gertie Paper - "Friends Forever" Petals, "Little One" Darling Dots; Ali Edwards Stamp Set - This One; Heidi Swapp "Delight" Stamp; American Crafts/Dear Lizzy Neapolitan Roller Date Stamp; Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Walnut Stain; Color Box Chalk Ink - Rose Coral; Studio Calico Mister Huey - Dark Calico; Fiskars Flit On By Punch; Fiskars Circle Punches - Extra Large, Large, Medium; EK Success Scallop Circle Punch; WRMK Corner Chomper; Elle's Studio Tags - Lil' Snippets Date, Handmade Layers Cutouts; Heidi Swapp Ghost Heart; Basic Grey Button; Misc. Brads; Twine; DMC Floss

I absolutely ADORE this picture of Emily. It was such a crazy shot with her being so close to me, but I love how it's focused completely on her, and how she looks so happy! It really shows who she is and I wanted the layout to let her shine, which I think it does beautifully. :)


I made the second layout this morning and I think it all came together pretty easily! There are some challenges that I wanted to get done before the month's end, so that's where alot of my inspiration came from...

Supplies: Crate Paper Paper Heart Paper - Romance, Love Letter, Cupid, Define; Ali Edwards Stamp Set - Bring On The Love; American Crafts/Dear Lizzy Neapolitan Roller Date Stamp; Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Pumice Stone; Studio Calico Mister Huey - Clay; Fiskars Circle Punches - Extra Large, Large, Medium; EK Success Scallop Circle Punch; Fiskars Scallop Sentiment Border Punch; Martha Stewart 3-in-1 Classic Butterfly Punch; WRMK Corner Chomper; My Mind's Eye "Beauty Of Life" Quote; Basic Grey Brad; Carnala Computer Font

This picture is another favorite of mine. I absolutely love getting shots like this, where no one is paying me any mind...they're just being together. It's so precious to see. :)

I'm still feeling crafty today so you never know...there may be another share headed your way soon, as long as Madison stays off the computer that is, lol. ;) Thanks for your visit!
