September 5-11, 2016 - mambi

Morning and welcome to my first week of September planner spread.  This is a huge week for my son and I.  It is his full week (minus Labor Day) of 6th grade and I have a simple surgery.  I decided to combine the two events in my Happy Planner with motivational words and practical documentation.  

Although my planner looks full, there is plenty of room for additional sticky notes.  I will apply them directly to the top of the base stickers.  Unfortunately, I don't think I will be doing too much towards the end of the week so having the large mambiSTICK is perfect way to decorate the base of my page. 

My to-do list is ever grown and I am running out of time.  I hope you are enjoying your planner as much as I am.  Thank goodness it helps me keep things in order and it looks pretty too!

It is on the me & my BIG ideas blog with links to the items I used.  You can buy them through mambi too.

You & Me - Paper Issues

I know I talk alot about Product Spotlights over on the Paper Issues blog
It really is fun for the team to focus on a collection, then see how everyone uses it differently.  
For this Spotlight, it was anything by Doodlebug.  I have to say that I don't usually do Doodlebug but I could not stop myself from buying the new pet collections Kitten Smitten and Puppy Love.  
For this layout I combine the two and came up with this. 

Remember, every thing you buy in the Paper Issues Store is 20% off when you use code: Mary-Ann Shipping is FREE with any order of $60.00.

August 14-21, 2016 - mambi

Ever have one of those weeks where you need to plan to plan?  Time slips away and you have to go back in time to complete the previous week?  That is what happened to me.  I blame it on Jimmy.  Jimmy Buffett that is.  What do you think of when you hear his name?  Sharks, cheeseburgers, parrots?  Sometimes you have to improvise.  I went with flamingos, pineapples, bright colors, glitter and tie dye. 

My husband and I met twenty or so years ago when Jimmy was huge.  Every time I hear him sing, it takes me back to my early 20's.  So did hearing him last week!  

Anyway, here is my planner spread for that week.

It is on the me & my BIG ideas blog with links to the items I used.  You can buy them through mambi too. 

Meow - Paper Issues
