I had so much fun doing this page! I can't believe how easy it came together once I decided what I wanted to do. All the papers and embellishments are MME! I went ahead and outlined the pattern on the background paper with black pen and then outlined everything with black ink. I love how it makes everything stand out and how blue Colin's eyes look!
I wanted to wrap the twine around the picture to help draw your eye to it.

Patrick's 8th birthday is next month. I have been trying and trying to come up with ideas for a carnival party invitation. Finally came across Heidi Van Laar's blog and low and behold the cutest little circus tent card with a free template. I figured what do I have to lose right? The best part is? I had everything I needed already...easy peasy! So here is what I came up with:

My wonderful mother in law passed away January 20th. She had been ill for quite some time..while it was not completely a surprise, it definitely has not been easy. I wanted to honor her in some way, I also do not want my boys to forget the wonderful Grammy they had. So in the end I decided the best way for me to do this was to do a scrapbook page about her. I tried to add things I knew she loved. My first gut instinct was to do a an all white LO with blue and pink accents. Her entire house was decorated in those colors. However I couldn't find a patterned paper with those colors in it that I liked. So I went with pink and green accents and a lot of cream. It worked out perfectly because I also wanted to add a hummingbird...something else that she loved! The one I found turned out to have the green and pink colors in it. We will miss her every day, she was a fabulous lady and I am glad I got to be a part of her life for so many years!
