You Are Loved

  • not you, smog.
  • If you haven't already heard me complaining on the SC board, or on Instagram - well, we're miserable over here. MISERABLE. Lemme just show you a couple of photos :

  • And the photos above was taken on a better day than today. *sigh* We need to organize a rain dance. Our latest *3hr average* PSI reading is 367. I bet you it's actually higher than that. :( 
  • Alright, let's talk about something more pleasant, eh? Like this :
First time meeting each other!!! Lol!!
  • Their first time meeting each other. Sam is a big ol softie, really. :D He adores babies! I love the look on on their faces and so glad I captured that with my phone :)

  • One Crate paper layout for the Creative Weekly
  • Dots, circles, polkas, they all have something in common which is being loved by me :) I can't get enough of them in my daily life, as well as on my layouts. Add hand-stitching to that, and I'm in heaven!
  • In this layout, I combined brads from multiple Crate Paper collections with the adorable "Popcorn" patterned paper from The Pier. Notice the polka-dots on that particular paper? Double bonus! Circles on circles is my absolute favorite. I stitched circles to 'house' the brads I planned on putting onto the layout. If you ask me what is my favorite embellishment, while I may have a hard time answering you and will have more than one answer, brads will most definitely be on the list!
