And I'm Back

It's been a long hiatus. Sorry for the lack of updates but I've been down and out with the 'death cold'. I've never been so sick in my entire life. I literally did nothing on the weekend but travel from my bed to the couch to the shower and back to the bed. It was a rotating cycle of tissues and medication. Yuck. I wouldn't wish it on anyone. Needless to say, there was very little energy for anything and that included blogging.

But, I'm feeling much, much better now and I'm happy to be back and sharing a few new layouts with you.

These were created almost two weeks ago but didn't have any journaling because my printer ran out of ink. I finally got out to get some and finished them off last night.

You might remember that last week I used the pink die cut paper from the Handmade Studio Calico kit as my background paper. Well I had a second sheet and so I wanted to try using it for misting. This is the result of that attempt.


 I used a few instax pics here that I've been wanting to scrap that were taken during the Fall downtown in St. John's. This layout was made with 99% of the Handmade kit with a few other little extras added in. Honestly, this wasn't one of my favorite kits but for whatever reason the layouts came together fairly effortlessly. Again, I used those Amy Tangerine letters- they might be my favorite Thickers of all time.


This is a little close up of those cute American Crafts leaves and a little wooden house that I misted from Studio Calico. Again, you'll notice that I used those little wooden letters that I love so much to stamp some sentiments and captions.

This layout was simple-a little misting, sewing, some letters and just a little pattern paper and embellishing. All products are from the Handmade kit again.


This title just came to me and was so PERFECT for this photo. It's surprising that a Fall kit with very little red can be so Christmas-y. I think this photo speaks for itself but if not the journaling reads:

'Some of the best Christmas photos are the funny ones taken when gifts are opened around the tree. This year we gave Liam some Baby mustache pacifiers- custom made by me. I caught this shot while everyone was laughing and enjoying our gift giving on Christmas eve- aren't they cute?'


I was sparce with the embellishments but added a little embossed holiday message from some Hero Arts Holiday stamps.

Last night I also had a chance to work on my Project Life layout for Week 11 & 12. I'll be back to share some PL tomorrow.



  1. so glad you're feeling better, girl!! love the layouts!

  2. Love the binky faces! Great composition and blend of products on that page :)

  3. Great layouts as always. The simple one really let the photo shine!

    It's funny how many blogs today are "back from hiatus". I'm the same. Last week must've been a funky week for many of us bloggers!

  4. Super cute LOs! I have a friend who is from St Johns, NF and she and I had a long convo once where I was thinking of St. John NB and she was talking NF and it was all very confusing.

  5. Great layouts & I'm glad you're feeling better!

  6. Love these layouts. Glad you are feeling better - nothing worse than a bad cold when you have so many other things you would rather be doing.

  7. Those two LOs looks awesome, I love the colours! And what about the moustache pacifier???!!! GREAT!
