So lucky to have you

My hubby and I celebrated our 19th anniversary yesterday! While the day was crazy busy, it was fun recalling all of the moments we'll remember forever 19 years earlier. I made him this card for the occasion.

I used the sketch from the CAS(E) this Sketch! challenge. I love their sketches! When it comes to card making, clean and simple is my go-to look!

I loved this stamp from Elle's Studio and I thought that it was perfect for an anniversary card.

I am happy to say that he loved his card! I got some pretty little daisies (one of my favorite flowers) with tiny pink roses in a vase from him as well. It was a good day! :) Thanks for stopping by!

Traveling on a Journey

I love vacation photos. They don't even have to be mine. I just love to see different places and "explore" destinations even if I will never go there. Fortunately, I did have the chance to explore a little piece of the Caribbean last year!

My husband and I had the opportunity to go the the Turks & Caicos islands for a vacation with five other neighborhood couples. Once we figured out we could make it work, we were very excited. I had been there before but it would be my hubby's first time!

Having the chance to go with such great friends was just the icing on the cake. This Jet Set collection from We R Memory Keepers is absolute perfection to document this trip (which I am determined to do)! 

I love all of the pieces that can come together to capture exactly what I need it to say! Nothing fancy schmancy here, just a good time crafting, using a great collection and documenting those important moments! Thanks for stopping by!

Birthday Hurray!

Although I don't scrapbook chronologically, I do try to get the kids' birthdays scrapped each year with one of the cakes we had for them. I love this We R Memory Keepers collection, Hip Hip Hooray because it is good for my sons and my daughter scrapbook pages and it has so many fun pieces.

I created this layout of my son's 15th birthday using a combination of the 6x6 sides and the 12x12 sides of the paper. I love the 3x4 cards to this collection as well. Since I am not a Project Life scrapper, I enjoy using them on my regular layouts.

A 4x6 card on the left (the numbers one) helps in layering the papers to achieve the look that I wanted. 

I still have so many pieces of this collection left to use so I have a feeling you will be seeing more of it in the future! Such a fun and celebratory collection! Thanks for looking!

I wanted to share a layout that I created using the new Pretty Little Studio collection "Marigold." The vellum bokeh paper was what first caught my eye in this collection. Then, I was the random winner of the pretty butterfly diecuts so I knew it had to be mine! :) I wanted to scrap this photo of my Grandma & I on Mother's Day of this past year and thought that the butterflies would be perfect!

Although it is difficult to see here, the word "happiness" in the title is shiny gold and also part of the collection.

The bright butterfly triangles around the photo worked well with the other more subdued, watercolored paper as well.

And, a few sequins peeking out from behind the triangles completed the embellishment on the page. 

Thank you for stopping by today and for the comments many of you have left recently! I love reading them and getting your feedback on some of the questions that I ask. Enjoy your day!

Memory Recorded

Dealing with grief is not exactly something that I really want to talk about on my blog. However, I do want to recall my thoughts and feelings in the years to come, about how I felt during this time after losing my Grandpa in January. I found a sketch from Creative Scrappers which was perfect for recording the memory of a dream I had of my Grandpa recently.

I like that it didn't require a photo. I could simply write what I wanted to say and not worry about if I had an appropriate photo to match.

The Elle's Studio Serendipity collection had the perfect words for what I wanted to relay on this layout with a lot of "remember this" and "memories" references.

A simple but very meaningful layout, all without even a photo. I am so glad that I made time to create this one! Thanks Kristine Davidson for another incredible sketch!

Cute Cards

I made a couple of cards recently that I wanted to share. I found a lot of inspiration out there from various sources so continue reading for the inspiration links! Here is the first card:

The sketch is from Page Maps, July 2014 collection and I closely followed the card that Jen Shults made.

I also got the color inspiration from the Fusion Card Challenge. I used the color but not the sketch for both cards. Here is the inspiration:

And here is the other card that I made: 

This card used the same color scheme as the Fusion Card Challenge but I used the sketch from Sketch-n-Scrap for this one! 

Well how is that for various places of inspiration? :) I love following a variety of different blogs! It is always fun to find a sketch that works for me or a color combo I wouldn't necessarily have considered! 

Thank you for stopping by to take a look today! I have a question for you as well...

If you had to choose between the two, which do you enjoy seeing more of on blogs: cards or layouts?
