Documenting Fun - Paper Issues

Today is Swag Bag Sunday over on the Paper Issues blog. I did not received the December bag before I started my project so I reverted back to the October one.  They are so so so much fun.  Everything you need is neatly packaged in a glassine bag.  Add lettering if you need to and a base sheet of paper and that is it!  Grab one from the PI store HERE.

Here is this months....

Deer Boy! - Paper Issues

5 photos and 4 different alphas?  What???  Why did I decide to play along with this one?  I guess I love a challenge.  Do you?  The new Roll the Dice challenge from Paper Issues PIFF group is up and ready for participants!  I finished my 5 photo layout and forgot that I needed 4 alphas.  It ended ok, but it was definitely a challenge.  

I used Simple Stories Winter Wonderland that is available in the Paper Issues store.  20% if you use my code: Mary-Ann 

My boy was 5 here.  He brought this reindeer hat home from school and wouldn't take it off.  What annoyed me then, was him making all the faces.  Now, it makes me happy looking back on how cute and goofy he was.  I just adore this kid.

Let it Snow - AFB

Yup, that date does say March 25th, 2015.  Can you believe we had so much snow on this day, that stuck to the ground?  These pictures were at my sisters house, we had even more snow fall at my house 4 hours down the road.  It was a surprise.  No coats, hats or boots with us.  The weather kinda stunk until I look back now and see how much fun my boy had driving his remote truck in the dirt and snow.  

This layout is on the A Flair for Button blog where you can see what flair I used.  
Love the paper collection?  It is Crate Paper's Snow & Cocoa available in the Paper Issues store HERE - code Mary-Ann will get you 20% off.

Holiday Magic - Paper Issues

How about a new Pinspire Me Mood Board?
It is a stunner and I can't wait for you too all the creations by the design team.  
Check them all out HERE on the Paper Issues blog.  
Take a look at the board.....

I was inspired by the black and the trees on the pillows.  Not sire where the gold came from but I love it.  I used Merry & Bright from Fancy Pants.  Grab it from the PI store for 20% off when you use code: Mary-Ann. 


Winter - Paper Issues

Morning.  Each Sunday, Paper Issues PIFF has a challenge called Scrap lift Sunday.  They pick a designer's layout to scrap lift.  This week, they chose a layout  by Amanda.  She is an amazing designer and had a beautiful project that I lifted.

Here is my take.  I used Crate Paper's Snow & Cocoa collection that you can order from Paper Issues Store for 20% off when you use code: Mary-Ann.  

Here is Amanda layout.  Stunning, isn't it?
