Birthday Tag & Layout

Good Afternoon–and Happy Thursday to everyone!

I’ve been enjoying a day of sunshine, after several days of “chilly” with the kids–but, I thought I’d post a project I worked on last night!

I don’t usually make tags- because I can’t seem to figure them out–they never look balanced to me…or they look too crowded.

Don’t get me wrong–other people do AMAZING tags– I just haven’t found my “TAG GROOVE” 🙂

After seeing my friend Meriah’s tag last night- I thought I would try a tag–



And, if you can believe it–there are 4 sneak peeks in this tiny little tag!!! Crazy, huh?


Other items I used: Glimmer Mist in Coffee Bean, Stick-on pearls in a mocha color, Graphic 45 key charm, Tim Holtz Bigz Tiny Tags Die,  Divine Twine,  Distress Ink and CTMH Denim Ink


I also worked on a layout last night for my son’s book- (See, I am getting better at working on pages!!)

As I looked at it– it made me smile because of the pictures, because of the memories- and then I realized- I didn’t use any fancy machines– I used: pretty paper, scissors, paper cutter, and adhesive– {Old School}

But, the point is- that we don’t need fancy machines to be happy with a layout- it’s the memory in the layout that we are preserving that should really make us SMILE. 🙂

And even this morning as I put the page into his book–it still made me SMILE- {he still made me smile},  so the sentiment from Pink by Design Enjoy the Journey is PERFECT!

Sending Sunshine and Smiles to you all today!! 🙂
