Just a quick post of a recent layout today, things have been busy here lately! The photos are from last summer, I've done a layout with some of these before, but I couldn't resist using some more of them on a layout as they are just so cute!

Close-Up Journaling

A tip on using tags: Often times I'll cut a tag in half and get more bang for my buck by splitting them and using them on the same layout or saving one half for another project completely, in this case I used one for providing a home for my title work and on the other half I wrote my journaling.

Close-Up of Button

Again, I used the old putting patterned paper behind a clear button trick to "alter" my button.

I received my first box of goodies from Marks Paper Company yesterday and am already getting busy with it...Stacy was so sweet to provide some extra-special little welcome gifts too, totally made my day!

Also, check out a fun tutorial that I did on making paper flowers for Creative Imaginations over on their blog today. It's my first video and the sound is terrible, but I agreed to them posting it as long as they knew I could master the sound issue on future videos that are to come!

That's all for today I think, Zoey's got bible class tonight so that means I'm off to pick up some pizza from our favorite take-n-bake place for dinner...have a good one!

I really love this! And I hope the annual visit becomes a weekly riding lesson! Every girl should have her own pony!

What a cute occasion to scrap! The little circles to add more photos is neat looking and I like that piece you wrote the journaling on.

Oh Jen I love the layout!!! Love the use of your circles/photos!
And congrats on being asked to be part of the Marks Paper team. I'll have to check then out in detail and suggest them to our store.

On another note, I have a private question to ask you if you have Nat's email she has mine, you can get ahold of me that way.

Have a wonderful day!
