September Mixed Media Monthly at The Lilypad

I am back home after a few weeks of travel, and slowly settling back into my routine. I was thrilled to play with the newest M3 collection from The Lilypad. The color scheme is just fantastic this month! Here’s what I made:

Now if only this cold I brought back from my trip would leave me alone, so I can relax and craft this weekend!

Summer’s End

It feels like summer is almost over… but I’m doing my best to squeeze as much out of it as I can! The designers at The Lilypad are on fire with some awesome new releases, so even though I was traveling most of the week I managed to squeeze in a few pages before I left.

July BYOC at The Lilypad

I was out of town for the first half of the week, and after coming home last night, I went a tad crazy using the newest BYOC collection from The Lilypad. I had so much fun with it, and ended up making 7 layouts in one sitting! Here they are.

Supplies:

Last week I took part in a work event that I’d been working like crazy for for the past 6 months. It didn’t go as expected… but I’m trying to focus on the good things. One of them, was my outfit + makeup.

Supplies:

I snapped this photo from the back seat of an Uber car, and I love this shot of the blurry taxi with the Empire State Building in the back. 100% New York City.
