Where to Begin...

Seriously, I have so much catch up work to do, I can't even think of where to begin! That's what happens when you are running around with end of the year craziness, birthdays, work, activities and let yourself get walloped by a sinus infection. Not fun, but I am feeling better, so it is time to dig myself out from under the pile of To DO's and get caught up! First off....
my latest Simple Stories layout using the Awesome collection was on the Simple Stories blog:
I really do love all the little fun elements included in Simple Stories collections and this layout was all about using them right on a photo.
Coolest thing? The layout was featured as a 2Peas featured project the day after I loaded it up!
My little dude got a big kick out of that!
Next up? Imaginisce and Canvas Corp had a fun blog hop this past week. Here is my project, which also became my Mom's mother's day present :)
I used a Studio Calico mask and sprayed Tattered Angels mist on the canvas pennants then adhered them to the burlap Canvas Corp bag with the Imaginisce i Bond. The little brads were made with the Imaginisce i Top, some Brad Daddies and the Makin Waves collection. Loads of fun and I think this makes the perfect bring a book to the beach bag!
Finally, Scrapbook Circle is hosting a "Mother's" challenge. All you have to do is create a project with the theme of "mothers" and load it up to the Scrapbook Circle Facebook Page by May 16th at 9:00pm PST and you will be in the drawing for a $10 Scrapbook Circle credit. You can find all the details of the challenge HERE. And my take is HERE...
 I used everything from the May Scrapbook Circle kit The Story, the add on Life Documented and the printable pdf that comes with the kit. Everything here was glued down with Therm O Web adhesives :)
Ok, I do have more to share, but let's call it a night with a promise to be back tomorrow?
Hope all you mother's had a very Happy Mother's Day and hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!
