project life goodness

Before jumping into today's project, just thought I'd share this photo with y'all. Yesterday the last of the Bradford crew graduated. It's crazy. No more kids in school. College, yes. But the weekly school and activities? Done. Congratulations Jordy girl! You did it! And now, here's a bit of Project Life goodness from our lovely Nichol.

pardon me, do you have a tissue?

Are you familiar with Crafts Unleashed? It's a wonderful resource for sooooo many crafting ideas! The girls over there are just crazy with their creative goodness! So a little while ago, Miss Shaunte Wadley  had a fun idea and asked if I could help her out. Well of course I said yes! She wanted a mini tissue box digital cut file to play with and I was happy to oblige. You want a sneak peek of her idea, you say? Okay!     To see the whole enchilada and instructions, run on over to Crafts Unleashed HERE. Oh, and you want the file [...]

create a sports album

Hey everyone! Just popping in really quick to share a fabulous sports book idea from Laura! I should do something like this for Jordan for drama, but considering she graduates on the morrow, I think I'm a little late in the *ehem* game for that. ;) [ Shapes | Weathered Door Alphabet [All] / Decade: 2000 / twentyTEN / twentyELEVEN / twentyTWELVE / twentyTHIRTEEN / A Beautiful World / Touchdown / The Ol' Ballgame / School Years: Add-Ons / Graduation ]   Here's what Laura has to say: I was recently asked to put together an album for a graduating [...]

happy memorial day

We're celebrating the Memorial Day holiday here in fine fashion today . . . no pun intended. Okay, so maybe it's a little bit of a pun. I about dropped my jaw to the floor when our lovely Nichol showed me this addition to her holiday dress form. [ Shapes |  This & That Freedom (patriotic banner) / Stars & Stripes (star with wavy lines hanging, star) / This & That Autumn (sunflower) / Design Team Picks (rolled flower) / Silhouette Class Extras: Oh The Places You Will Go (flower) ] You may remember her Valentine version of it HERE. I think that's [...]

in the spirit of giving things away

So if you follow me on Facebook, you know that I've been going through all my blankety-blank-blank scrapbook stuff--sorting through it, deciding what I should keep, give to friends, sell, donate to my teacher friends and school...and all that sort of stuff. So in the spirit of giving things away, because it's been a while since I had a plain ol' freebie, here is a freebie for y'all! And because I couldn't decide if I liked it with or without the flourish, I figured I didn't have to decide. Just include them both! This a 3x4 card that you can use [...]

a realization

Lately I’ve been feeling overwhelmed. Okay, more overwhelmed than usual, let’s say. ;) Somehow I’ve got too many major things going on in my life all at the same time. I’ve been having this feeling...this urge...this need...to simplify and focus on what really matters. It’s just been constantly on my mind this past little while. Then the other morning, I woke up, grabbed my iPhone and started perusing some sites--as I often do from the comfort of my bed. I was looking at blogs and being rather jealous (so to speak) at how much they are able to put into [...]

new kit: weathered door alphabet

A few years ago I made an alphabet. Yes, it's true. My reason for making it changed and I never used it. But you may remember seeing it on these pages.     So it's been sitting here on my computer for some time  and now I've finally made it into a cuttable set of files! I wanted to call it something representative of me and what I love and of course my mind went to our family farm. I thought about how things get weathered and worn there an decided to call it Weathered Door (thinking of the old [...]

i have returned

Woooooweeeee..... It's been a crazy past few days (well couple weeks, really. :)). This morning my eyes are swollen and my feet are swollen and all I want to do is just lay around. We left for HSN on Monday and if you follow me on Facebook, that started off with a bang when I lost my crown late the night before. So I had to go get that fixed before noon...along with all the other errands and packing that needed attending to. Lots of 'behind the scenes' craziness and mayhem that always seems to accompany the HSN shows. But Lisa [...]

lucky duck

I'd have to say I'm one 'lucky duck' to have Miss Layle have joined our team. She's so amazingly talented! Check out what she's made here: [ Shapes | This+That: Lucky (title) / You Are Here ] I love how she used the brand new 'You Are Here' in a sort of block form on the layout! It looks awesome! Here's what she has to say: The 'You Are Here' symbol is so iconic - it's amazing how something created not long ago to show people where they were on a map has now evolved into something instantly recognizable by [...]
