December Daily - Days 1 - 7

Okay, now's the time for a little confession...
I have had my December Daily that I am using this year done... since 2009.  :)  I made it several years ago using stuff from my stash, and never followed through to get it filled.  This is the year that it is happening!  I have gotten more than half way through so far, but have had to pause for Christmas, travel and recovery from a sinus infection.  I took advantage of the sale at Snapfish to get my latest batch of pictures developed, so I am at a pausing point right now until those arrive.  Below you will find completed days one through seven and the front of day eight.  

If you are interested in seeing the foundation pages, I have them all posted in a Flickr album that you can find here.

Hope you enjoyed looking, and I will get the other half of the pages I have already finished posted tomorrow.  I am off to put the little one down for a nap. Wish me luck!

I hope everyone has a  SAFE and WONDERFUL New Year's Eve today and this evening!

Checking in and a Coupon!

Hi Everyone!!
I am SO SORRY that it's been a while since I updated here.  With the holidays and then we had a death in the family, so I haven't had a lot of time lately to get things photographed and  shared.  I am planning on getting my December Daily up to date and photographed soon.

As a little bonus for checking in today, below is a great coupon from Suzanne, over at Flamingo Scraps for 35% off all of the Pink Paislee items she has in the store.  She is already carrying their new line Secret Crush, just in time for getting those Valentine's cards and layouts ready!

Above the Clouds - Flamingo Scraps

Hi everyone!  I am back with another layout using some of the great items that you can find at Flamingo Scraps

For our honeymoon, my husband and I spent two glorious  weeks in Hawaii, visiting the islands of Oahu, Maui and Lanai.  On the island of Maui, we made the trek to the top of the inactive volcano Haleakala and saw some of the most amazing views I've ever seen!  While working our way to the top, we actually drove through the clouds and eventually came out above the cloud line (which you can see in the background of both of these pictures.)  

There is a slight dimensional element to my layout and lots of layers! I am loving Pink Paislee's Portfolio line, lots of which has made its way to my recent layouts .  I really like to get multiple pictures on my layouts.  There are actually three pictures on this layout - the elevation sign in the middle is a separate picture.  

Here's a little view from the side so you can see the dimension and the great sequins on that black arrow.  The Artisan Chipboard stars are great on their own, or stacked for a little extra height!

Specifics for this look:

  • Pink Paislee - Portfolio Paper - Incredible
  • Pink Paislee - Ephemera
  • Pink Paislee - Artisan Chipboard - Stars
  • Pink Paislee - Portfolio Photo Tabs
  • Heidi Swapp - Vintage Chic Notes
  • Heidi Swapp - Sequin Shapes - Disco Arrows
  • Heidi Swapp - Color Shine - Tinsel
  • Studio Calico - Mr. Huey's - Water Cooler
Some cardstock, Thickers and alpha stamps and it's done!  

Until next time!
