I am loving my new camera!  My hubby gave it to me as a combined anniversary, mother’s day, birthday gift.  The pictures on this page showcase some of the first photos taken.  I got the camera out and one boy decided to play dead and the other decided to play the conquerer. At first, I struggled with color, but then I just jumped on the new 2018-2020 InColors and I think it worked out pretty well!

I am sure you have noticed how much I absolutely love the Ink Smooching Technique!  It just adds so much to a project and it is so easy to do.  I have shared a step-by-step tutorial on ink smooching and watercolor background, you can download it now by CLICKING HERE.

I tend to shy away from journaling as I am not a big fan of my handwriting, but I force myself to do it! I NEVER write straight but I have learned to embrace it!  It is me, my style and I want my boys to remember all aspects of me.  Handwriting is a lost art…handwritten letters are practically extinct, replaced by an electronic text or post.  One of the most valued things my dad left behind was a handwritten poem…so, embrace it!  It means a lot to those you love!

I picked 5 coordinating cards from the Perfect Days Card Pack to frame one of my favorite photos of our son Parker.  The cards with the black hexagons was 2 cards that I cut in half and placed strategically on the page. After choosing my layout, I needed to decide what I was going to add for embellishments.  I had accidentally dropped a card with adhesive on it on top of my photo (bummer, but stuff like that always happens to me) so I had to find something to cover up my booboo. I went for the Hearts and Stars Elements to continue with the heart theme already set for the page, but wasn’t digging the wood tone…so I grabbed my trusty Stampin’ Write Markers and colored the wood to match the theme of the page.

I went through the 2017-2018 Annual Stampin’ Up! Catalog to look for sentiments to add to my page.  I decided that ‘Today is the Perfect Day to Be Happy’ from the Bunch of Blossoms Stamp Set was exactly what I was looking for.  There were several other options that were close in the running!  I added my journaling about the day with a Journaling Pen, stamped Parker’s name with the Brushwork Alphabet (similar font to the pre-printed cards) and I was done!
