Do you hear that? It's the sound of my heart breaking.


Baby girl is eight! How did that happen? Ouch. I don't want her to grow up! Someone please help! Do something, anything! :)) But I can still smile today, for she is as sticky as ever. She sticks to me like no one's business, that girl. LOL. I want her to do that for as long as I live, if possible.

And my mama turned 57! You see that photo of them up there? They were making deals not to disturb and irritate each other. LOL. You have to be there to understand how funny that was.

Happy Birthday Mama! Happy Birthday Nidhi! I love you both, so much!

Okay, time for Napa Valley reveal! :) I got myself Napa Valley and Monterey. Let me tell you, they're chock-full with products. No regrets! I already put my shopping list up in this post - and also the $2 off any punch coupon you can use. So if you miss that, click that link and read on. :)

I see me in you

just a heads up - Napa Valley - has an alpha stamp in it. Yummy, versatile and just the right size. I used the set in the layout above. And there's a number set that matches that particular alphas in the shop! I used it too - subtle stamping in the background. Can you see it?

A lot of misting here. Fun! And a little self indulgent, but I don't care. I love scrapping about myself.

Some fun stitching with twine, some misting, a lot of layering! This one screams happiness to me. Such happy colors. Such happy photos. :))

As usual, I'm available if you have questions. I'm available via email *email button on left side bar* or even facebook.

Thanks for reading and looking! I hope, somewhere in this post. . . I have inspired some of you. :))

Sasha, your photos of you and your little girl are so sweet! My little girl is five, and I don't want her to grow up either. I know how you feel!
Love the subtle stamping on the first layout. The second one is so gorgeous with the doilies and the misting, and the stitching on the third layout is oh so fab!

Lal said...

AAAAHHH! As always, I just ADORE looking at your pages! I wish I had half your talent! What are the doily looking things on the LO about yourself? I love that you used the word "sticky" to describe your dd! That is TOTALLY my son...my 5 year old. That gave me an idea to use that as a title for a page with a pic of me and him! Thanks for the inspiration! Have an awesome weekend :)

Sherri said...

Hi Sasha,

I just found your blog through the Calico Blog - what a find indeed. Your style is amazingly inspirational. You've made me want to run out and buy an 8.5x11 album and start scrapping that size right away :) I'll be sticking around here for quite sometime. Thanks for sharing your world with all of us.

sophie said...

Jill said...

I have nothing but BIG love for your projects in this month's SC gallery. W-wowza!

As far as that heart breaking, can I just share that my little one turns 13 in a few days? Agh, I wish I could just be in denial, but she's growing way too quickly for me NOT to notice.

Ania said...

Awwwee....I'm so with you on that layout no 1 (I see you in me) - keep catching myself thinking that about my kids too! (psst..my oldest is just one year older - does yours need a future mr husband? I want to be able to go to Singapore for vacations and stuff, and that would be the perfect excuse. Or something like that :p)
