Simple Cards Card Kit | Just Chicken In



Popping on quick to share a few of the super cute cards that I put together the other night using the Simple Cards Card Kit | Just Chicken In. I love getting these card kits and putting them together at night while watching a movie or TV with Zoey. They are the perfect thing for when you're feeling crafty but not necessarily harnessing the creative mojo! 

Layout Featuring the Homegrown Collection

Well friends, it's been a hot minute since I've been on here it feels like! All of a sudden school started back up and life is b-u-s-y! My daughter is homeschooled and at the last minute she decided to take a few classes at the public high school this year which kind of left me scrambling! She's also working on college applications which is time consuming as well especially due to her interest in majoring in theatre. It means there's extra hoops to jump through in the application process. Monologues to memorize, dances to choreograph, and videos to create! Ack! So, thank you for bearing with me and sticking around!

Happy Halloween | Spooky Nights



Sharing a fun Halloween themed layout that I created this month for the Simple Stories blog. I had a blast creating with the Spooky Nights collection. Such a fun collection that was the perfect "go-to" for featuring these silly pictures of my daughter dressed up as a mad scientist one year. 

4th of July Picnic Layout



I was having fun going through old photos earlier this week looking for pictures from past Fourth of July celebrations and happened upon this cuteness and had to put them on a page! Zoey was soooooo little! I remember loving the dress that she was wearing...I think she got it from her Grandma Jahnke. The buttons were little sweet!

The Simple Stories "Family Fun" collection



Sharing a layout that I did for the Simple Stories blog this week using their Family Fun collection. I knew right away that I'd be creating a page sharing how we had so much fun playing old school board and card games this past year. Pretty sure my personal favorites are Uno and Checkers! I think Zoey's are the same but she's since learned how to play Chess and that may be up there more on her list now.

Simple Vintage Coastal Collection from Simple Stories


When I saw that one of my assignments for this month for Simple Stories was to use the Simple Vintage Coastal collection I knew exactly what photos I'd be using on a layout! I have some great photos of Zoey that were taken a several years back while visiting Tarpon Springs, Florida. She loved exploring the sponge docks while there and I loved getting to see her enjoying the very same spots that I got to explore when I was her age!! 

Scrapbook Layout using the Cozy Days collection from Simple Stories



Do you have a collection that you absolutely love and reach for again and again when creating? I do...I actually may have several favorites, but who's counting?! The Cozy Days collection from Simple Stories is ONE of my all time faves when it comes to crafting. I may have purchased multiples of some of this collection due to just this reason!
