Love my skin

As I get older I notice more and more changes happening to my skin. The one product I’ve found that is awesome is the Neutrogena naturals line. I recently had the chance to try the makeup wipes in the place of water. It’s apart of the #wipeforwater campaign. Here’s more info about it.  “Do you know that every day you clean your face without using water, you save up to 5 gallons of water from going down the drain? This {Read More}

April showers challenge 

Happy April everyone! What a great challenge we have for you.  I was inpsired by Danielle’s mood board for sure and pulled the black and yellow out as well as the black bow. Loved it. When I think of April showers I think of lazy days. For us it means catching up on some reading or just hanging out. I’ve been seeing this little tutorial around and thought I would give corner bookmarks a try. I followed this tutorial and {Read More}

Happy Thursday! I’m thrilled to be blogging for the Tombow team today from my hotel room in Atlanta Georgia!!

I’m calling it Tissue paper texture. Very similar to the art projects back in the day with the glue and tissue paper and pencil {Read More}


I loved using all the black & white patterned papers on this layout. I kept the photo black & white as well to keep the color balance. I chose something subtle for the background. Using the frames was a fun way to bring attention to the photo in the center. A little bit of gold finishes this off in the title and the arrow stickers.  Instructions: 1. Start out with a patterned paper for the background. 2. Next choose from {Read More}

Pretty paper from a pretty girl

Today I’m sharing a couple fast and colorful layouts using my sweet friend Elizabeth Kartchner’s collection from American Crafts. In the first photo I had some fantastic photos taken by a photographer friend and I couldn’t have been happier with how they turned out. Shes simply amazing. This fast page uses all pieces from the same collection. I mixed up the photos by using both color and black and white. I kept the page pretty balance with embellishments on both {Read More}
