Happy Friday!

A very happy Friday it is! How cool is this!? Two Peas in a Bucket gave me a shout out in their most recent weekly newsletter. Thanks for making my week, Two Peas! Woweee! (I know it's not a big deal to most, but it's very cool to a newbie like me!)


Thanks, bestie, for pointing it out to me!

To end the week off, here's another layout. Equal parts tribute and thanks to my parents for being here for me 'every step of the way' using some of my favorite My Little Shoebox designs. My parents are my everyday inspiration and heroes, so this is for them:


Used: My Little Shoebox pattern papers, diecuts, stamps; Adirondack pigment ink; DMC embroidery floss; Reflections by Michael's pearl and rhinestone accents; Tim Holtz distress inks

Here's a closer look: I love journaling spot diecuts and diecuts in general because you can create so much with them. Here I cut out the journaling area to create a sunny flower frame around my photo:


I also love creating my own backgrounds by stamping and masking, and I can't get enough of these tabbed alpha stickers:


Thanks for looking! Until my next post!
