I used my Feb Studio Calico kit with add-ons to make this layout - it kind of grew bigger than I wanted it to, lots more patterned papers and things - but I like the way it turned out!
And, I am so excited to announce that I was contacted by Paige at American Crafts and was asked to be a guest designer on their blog in March!! I just got my goodies yesterday and I am beyond thrilled that I get to work with the new Dear Lizzie Neopolitan line!! There are bits and pieces of it in the Feb Studio Calico kit that I used in the layout above but I get to work with ALL of it!! When it gets closer to the blog release, I will give some sneaks of my projects!! The full reveal will be on March 21st!! Stay tuned and thanks for stopping by!!

"This is what life is like with this teenager right now. Constant motion, constant going, constant leaving, always on the go. It's never ending - and just how she likes it! I just need her to slow down some, spend some time with me before she's gone off to college. I just know once this one's gone, I probably won't see much of her anymore. She's my baby - the last of 3 - and I'll be heartbroken when she's gone. I need the blur to slow down and come into focus for just a little longer so that I can savor the last few years together, If only she could see things the way I do. But youth never does....."
Sigh.....I guess I'm just feeling a little melancholy today!!
I used my February Studio Calico kit (with add-ons) to make this. I inked those gorgeous chipboard letters with chalk ink (which I also used around the photo and to ink around other things too!). I did a little misting (white Mr. Huey), some sewing, some border punching and lots of layering! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!!

For my "Dream Big" layout the challenge was to use a mask for misting or painting. I cut a butterfly out using my Silhouette Cameo and misted over it, then I used the same butterfly next to my photo of Danielle with her new straight teeth - she got her top braces off that day! I also used my Silhouette for cutting the title - which was a piece of cardstock covered with Cosmo Cricket tiny text sticker phrases.
For the "let love grow" card, the challenge was to use at least 2 stamps on a project where they are the main focus. My card is basically just the stamped images - the starburst, wood grain circle and quote - with just a small puffy sticker heart and some liquid pearl dots.
For my "oh happy day" card I combined 2 challenges - using some diecut washi tape was one, and the other was to make a card that has at least 4 different punches used on it! The 4 punched pieces are the 2 butterflies, the dark teal scalloped circle and the border across the bottom. The washi pieces are the larger butterfly and the dark teal scalloped circle.
It's been fun and I need to get a move on to finish!! TFL!!
