Spring Way Back

Not too long ago my father in law sent us some old photos that he had taken before my husband and his siblings were born. One of the photos caught my eye. It's a picture of my husband's cousins, sitting in the yard, enjoying a Spring day.

It was a perfect pairing with the Daffodil Daydreams Collection from Aimee Harrison Design Studios. Daffodils have always been one of my favorite flowers, they embody Spring perfectly....dontcha think??

Spring Flashback

In 1998 I took off for the weekend with my good friends Dedra and Nichole for a camping trip at an Ohio music festival. One of our favorite bands, Ekoostik Hookah, was hosting a weekend campout/music festival on Memorial Day weekend and we decided we needed a break. We packed up my big ol car (Myrtle the Rockabilly Love Machine) and headed out!

In short, we had a BLAST. Seriously. It was a weekend that we will remember for the rest of our lives. Music, sun, people, and lots of fun. So much fun that it started a tradition for us. Every Memorial Day Weekend and Labor Day Weekend for the next couple of years we headed to Hookahville.

This is just the first of the layouts that I'm creating with some photos from various trips. For these two pages I've used the mini kit "No Boundaries 1" from Sweetmade Inc. over at the Digital Scrapbooking Studio. The bright colors and funky feel were perfect for this project!

News and a Moon

Sorry for the absence here. Hm. Does anyone even read here?? Well, just in case....March was busy! I did scrap, but just couldn't sit down long enough to post much! Don't ya just hate it when that happens??

I have some news. I mentioned it up there in the title of this post, did ya see it?? Recently, one of my favorite designers, Aimee Harrison, had a CT call and I decided to give it a shot. Honestly, I didn't figure I'd get on her CT...after all, I'm still a rookie compared to lots of digiscrappers out there. But I wanted to try. Long story short, I am now a member of the Aimee Harrison Design Studio Creative Team!

My first outing on my new CT was with an amazing collection called Moonlit Nights. All I had to do was see the title and I KNEW I would love it. Look at it, it's amazing. The collection has sparkly glitters and TWO great alphas. I'm pretty sure I'm going to be coming back to this collection again and again.

For my first LO with this kit, I went in a little bit of an art journal direction. One of my favorite "quotes" immediately popped in to my head as I was opening up the kit and poured over the elements. Moons and stars and glitter....I was in heaven!

I'm going to print this one out and add a bit of extra sparkle to it then hang it in my art room to inspire me during my jewelry creating time!
