Are You Ready For Some Football?!

Well hello there paper peeps! Another football season is upon us, and I still have a ton of pics to scrap from last year's season lol! The Heidi Swapp September Skies Project Life is so perfect for pretty much anything, it can be pretty or masculine! There are so many cute cards in this collection I am so in love with it!
 
 
The navy blue just happens to be perfect for his uniform lol!
 
Here's the left side;
 
 
I love cutting up my Project Life cards to use them on other cards, and I was thinking about a way I could add some "football" elements to the page... I found this cute brown raised dot rubbery paper at Hobby Lobby so I cut a 3x4 card out of it, then cut up a white and gray wood grain PL card from September Skies and used that as my football threads lol! Kinda cheesy but fun! Gotta be creative sometimes!
 
 
I love being able to see all of these cute pictures all at once! That is one of the best things about Project Life. After all, documenting your memories is the whole point right?!
 
Especially breathtaking sunsets...
 
 
 
 
One thing I'll never forget is how I used to love hearing "tackle by" and then my son's name... It was exciting! But just in case I do forget, I journaled it here. You just never know! I could've just written, this is your sophomore year of football blah blah blah, but I wanted to make sure I wrote down something that would help me remember some sort of emotion related to what my son was doing, does that make sense? I want my kids to know how much I loved watching them do things that they loved! How much I am so thankful I got to be there for them through it all ;)
 
I had some blue & white striped paper left from a Minc project so I trimmed that down to 4x6 and used that, looks super cute in the layout! I. Love. Stripes.

 
So there really are no limits as to what you can do with these gorgeous Project Life kits, and when you add just a little imagination? Beautiful things happen.

When Project Life Meets September Skies, Plus A Free Download!

Well hello there paper peeps! Ummm have you seen the new Project Life September Skies Edition? It's exclusively at Hobby Lobby! And it is GORGEOUS!!! The first time I looked through the Core Kit I was like, are you kidding me?! Seriously one card is cuter than the next!
 
I created a layout of my mom and my niece Lexi at Daydream The Event last year, and I would love to share it with you!
 
 
 
 
I am so in love with the colors in this collection! Also, in the Value Kit, there are foiled and glittered cards! Ummm yeah. Super cuteness alert, hello. I had sooo many photos from this day, Project Life is going to be the perfect solution!
 
One of my favorite things to do with Project Life Kits are to find my favorite elements and fussy cut them to layer onto another card! Makes them look fancy lol! But that's the great thing about Project Life, is that you don't have to make them fancy if you don't want to! They look fabulous just the way they are!
 
 I sliced an inch off of one side of the 4x6 silver glittered stripes card and placed on the left of this pretty floral 4x6 card. Added just the right touch of glam ;)
 
 
The Value Kit also comes with a pack of embellishments which are so fun and easy to add! I usually just adhere them with a mini stapler and voila! Instant pretty! Look at that beautiful flower at the top of the speech bubble?! So. Pretty.

 
The "pretty much perfect" card is so pretty! All I did was shove a few sequins in there and that's it!

 
This is my niece Lexi girl, she's such a cutie pah!

 
 

If you're looking for a beautiful collection to capture all of your precious little moments, this is it!

Cocoa Daisy~ July "Bistro" Projects


Well hello there it's Friday baby!! Have you seen the July Cocoa Daisy "Bistro" Kits?! I am so blessed to be a new addition to their DT, and the kits I got to start out with just made it that much more awesome! Here let me show you what I made for this month!

This is the layout I did using the DITL kit! Ummm this kit was amazing. That pink & blue & teal together? Plus the cutest coffee cup ever? I die. 








This is the layout I contributed for this month's sketch challenge! I love creating with sketches, it makes the process so fun!




This is the mini album I created by simply adding a hole in the tops of mini pages, then adding a darling little gold ring to hold all of the pages together. These types of albums are so fun and easy to make, and awesome to flip through!  


There's more shots of the inside pages in the CD gallery


Just a couple fun cards ;) Love layering goodies! 


Seriously. The flamingo paper? The cahutest. 


It's amazing how many goodies I have left in my kits! I will definitely be making more projects with them! ;)

Thank you so much for stoppin in, have a glorious Friday!

Main Street Market

Hello there loves! On Saturday my dear friend Cheryl went for a little road trip up to Rockford to the Main Street Market! Ummm this was an AMAZING flea market, I can't even believe it. It was the most inspiring place! I left with my head spinning! It is put on by Urban Farmgirl, an awesome store in Rockford! I just wanted to share a few pics I captured, just keep in mind that most of them were while I was doing a "drive-by" so I didn't get trampled lol!

This is Cheryl isn't she the cutest?!
 



There was so much inspiration here I was going nuts! I'll only post a few pics at a time though so I don't flood ya lol!



I am so in love with old painted bikes!



Little treasures everywhere...




Hello eye candy...





Sorry if you hate feet lol! Had to;


Seriously. A mint green bike. I can't even handle it. We all need one of these babies in our lives. 






These pics don't even begin to cover it, I was snappin alll day loonngggg!!! So much inspiration in one place I can't even believe it! Can't wait to go again!

After the first round at the market, we hit this place for lunch! It is the coolest old place right on the water, and the food was to die. So if you're ever in Rockford, go here for lunch! 


What is your favorite girls day outing? Are there any flea markets that I must go no matter what the cost?! Do tell do tell ;)
