I took this photo a few months ago and held on to it because I loved it so much, but when I saw these products designed by Lynne-Marie I knew it was time to scrap it!

Goodbye July

I am saying goodbye to July with a few pages using the July BYOC (Build Your Own Collab) from The Lilypad – the August BYOC is released this Friday! I had so much fun using it to document the trip I made in June with my parents!

Look Ahead – Memory Pockets Monthly: Observations

Hello and happy Friday! This week has been an emotional roller coaster, waiting for important news, and waiting, and waiting… hopefully things will settle down some today. So I was certainly in the mood for some scrap therapy with the latest Memory Pockets Monthly collection, released today at The Lilypad.

I absolutely love these colors – gray, yellow and pink. And those floral patterns from some of the 3″x4″ cards included in the kit are so pretty!

July Mixed Media Monthly at The Lilypad

Hello and happy (almost) Friday! Today is release day for the newest M3 (Mixed Media Monthly) collection at The Lilypad, and I loved using it to scrap some of the photos of recent trip I made with my parents! New releases are 20% off through the weekend!

I had fun on this page combining brushes to build my background.

This next page doesn’t use the M3, but uses another new kit released today:

I also used the M3 for my monthly recap 2-page spread for July:

I am obsessed with that pretty red/pink/green floral paper! So gorgeous!

The Struggle Is Real

Hello and happy almost Friday! The new Mixed Media Monthly collection is in the store at The Lilypad, and it inspired me to tell a story about my health struggles I don’t normally document in my scrapbook pages – that’s one of the reasons I LOVE the Mixed Media Monthly products. But the main reason is that the products are absolutely gorgeous… check out that painted background!

May Adventures

We had my mom visiting for 10 days in May. We had such a great time! She left on Tuesday, and I’m already looking forward to our next get-together. Of course I took lots of photos, and I started scrapping some with the newest releases at The Lilypad:

Hello and happy hump day! I have been reminiscing lately – it’s been almost 2 years since I finished my MBA and I miss my classmates! So I uses some of the products that are 50% off in today’s sale at The Lilypad to scrap about some of those memories.
