Guest Designer and Crafty Creations!
Happy Monday Ladies. I am back from my 3 day scrap trip. I was able to complete
35 pages. Woohoo. So that is why I have been a little absent.
On a sad note, while I was away this weekend, a little boy on my son's baseball team
passed away. Some of you may have seen the page about 7 year old Ben on Facebook
He had a severe asthma attack that put him in a coma. Today my husband, one of the team
assistant coaches, and I will be attending the wake. It will probably be one of the hardest
wakes I have been to in my life. I am so saddened for his family and siblings.
Please keep Ben and his family in your prayers!
In the midst of all the excitement and sadness, I messed up on one of the post dates for
another guest designer. Jessica Barnes was invited to design with the Cut and Paste
collection by My Mind's Eye. She is getting a spotlight in this post for her lovely
creations. Thanks Jessica and sorry for the confusion.
I love what Jessica did with these fun papers. The pink colors are great for her to
showcase these adorable pictures of her girls. The paper and embellishments she
used are from the Adorbs group of this collection. I love how Jessica combines
the different patterned papers on her layouts. The matching butterflies she created
are adorable. Lovely layouts, Jessica. Stop by Jessica's blog to say hi.
The papers and embellishments from Cut and Paste are on sale through January.
Stop by and check out amazing deals on this collection filled with endless possibilities.
It is also time to share your crafty creations. Please link up your paper crafts for all
to see. Inspire and Be Inspired!! Thanks to all who linked up a couple of weeks ago.
