Today - Paper Issues

Hey folks.
My layout today is based off of a sketch I created for Paper Issues
They are doing 30 days of sketches right now.  Its actually pretty fun and I was able to create 3 of them.  Ill show you below the sketch for today. 
I document a photo of my mom, Roman and I.  We were hanging out at her house not long after Christmas last year. 

When I saw the floral ephemeral pack from PinkFresh - My Little Story, I wanted to use as many pieces as I could.  So, this is what I made.

Happiness Insta-Parade - Paper Issues

Paper Issues has opened up an Instagram Hop with friends of 
Paper Issues and a few design team members.
This parade is to create a page about something that makes you happy.  
Could be anything from people, to things, to the paper you choose to use on your project.

I chose a photo of me and my favorite little girl.
I used Love Notes by Doodlebug.  Not only does the photo make me happy but the papers do too!
You can grab anything from the Paper Issues store for 20% off with code: Mary-Ann

Head over to Paper Issues Instagram and get started on the Hop.  
There will be prizes.  So be sure to make comments along the way.

Family Game Night - Paper Issues

During this time of crisis, my family has been doing a lot of game playing, cooking (which I hate) and watching series.  
The other night, I bought SkipBo from Target and we have been playing tons.  Merle, our baby franchise, decided he needed to be held because he does not realize he is a dog.  So up he came, to my sons lap.  He played the game with us.  So, I had to document the event with Carta Bella - Family Game Night.  

I actually created this layout on a LIVE FB video in front of a crowd.  I let them select some of the options that I used on the layout.  The collection is a cross between Brady Bunch and the Jetsons.
I used the TV guide page to separate my photos and clumps of embellishments in to the 3 different corners.  Kinda like vignettes.  This collection is available in the Paper Issues Store if you go HERE.  

Let's take a look at the details of the layout.
