Sweet as Candy - Queen and Company

My favorite girl surrounded by candy is just right. 

I used the papers in the Candy Land Kit from Queen and Company to help draw out the colors in the photo.  Flo can not leave her basket alone.  She can't just pull out the one toy she wants.  She empties the entire bucket for the one toy on the bottom.  

Look how adorable the candy jars and candy are from the newest Shaker Kit from Q&C.

Happy Birthday - Paper Issues

This past Friday, I did a LIVE scrap session with Kelly over at Paper Issues.  We scrapped LIVE for a crowd of PIFFers and it was so fun!  I really had a great time.  The only thing left after the video was to add journaling and my boys name and age at the bottom. 

It is very bright and colorful, perfect for any birthday celebration.
Grab it from Paper Issues for 20% off with code: Mary-Ann.

Thankful - Fancy Pants

The assignment for this project, over on the Fancy Pants blog, is Thankful.  
I have so much in my life to be thankful for.  I could have created so many layouts on this topic.  
I decided to document these beautiful photos of my mom and my favorite girl.  
We were able to spend a day together last April and had a great time.

I used Hello Sunshine and Joy Parade, both from Fancy Pants.
All the times blend so well together.  

Thanks or stopping by.

Snow Tubing - Fancy Pants

Out with the old and in with the new.  
Or combine them together if it has anything to do with scrapping materials!!  
We were asked to combine new collections with older collections for todays post and I combined  3 different Fancy Pants collections.  

See more on the Fancy Pants blog.  


Angels - Fancy Pants

Can there really be enough pennants?  I feel that my stash is decreasing because I keep using them on my layouts.  My jar is getting empty!  But seriously, this red pennant on this black, white and light blue layout is awesome!  It stands out as a bright starting point for creating.  

A few years ago, the boys were making snow angels in the back.  Super cute but super cold.  I used the pennant stick as a branch to hang tags.  

I used Holiday Hustle as the other accents to the page.

Smoke em if you... - Paper Issues

It is time for Swag Bag Spotlight over on the Paper Issues Blog.  I did not used all the pieces from the January Swag Bag either.  There is so much more to play with.  I did throw on a few flair from A Flair for Buttons, a 12x12 paper and the stickers for the title.  The rest came in the bag.  Even an entire roll of washi!  What!!!

I used some crazy photos of my boy smoking a piece of raw spaghetti.  Why you ask?  I have no idea.  I think he may need counseling.  I know for certain he deserves a comedy award.  He is super crazy and super fun to hang out with.  Even if he is a smoker!  lol

Anyway, go grab your Swag Bag or anything else you want from the Paper Issues store, with code: Mary-Ann.  It will get you 20% off your entire order.

Love - Queen and Company

It is not often that my sister and her husband come down.  But when they do, Roman is hooked to Uncle Mitch's hip.  He laughs so hard that he cries.  I am seriously not sure who is more immature. I swear, that some of the jokes don't even make sense.  

Anyway, I captured this moment of Bub sitting on Uncle Mitch's lap.  He's bigger than his uncle but neither one of them care. 

I used so many Queen and Company products on this layout.  It was super fun and kinda girly cause my sister is the the photo too.  I need to take the chance to use pink any time I can!  lol.  

Head over to the Queen blog, to get the details on what projects I used.

Snow - Paper Issues

My favorite time of the month is Pinspire Me Mood Board day on the Paper Issues Blog.  Well, actually, designing the board is my favorite.  I just love how things come together when clicking through ideas on Pinterest.  If you are interested in following me over there, go to PINTEREST.  I have lots of idea boards and fun things to be inspired by.  

But, on the Paper Issues Blog today, a few of the team members came together to share their take on the new January Mood Board.   You too can play along over on the PIFF Facebook page.  Create a new project, upload it to the PIFF page and be entered into a drawing for a prize to the PI store.  

I used Sweater Weather from American Crafts for my project today.  My boys love playing in the snow.  I do too but I would much rather take photos.  This boy here, could stay out all day!  But wants hot cocoa immediately after coming in.  Who doesn't?
