Shellie: Digital Scrapbook layout using One Little Bird Milestones

This is another layout I did for the One Little Bird creative team guest spot this month.  I chose the Milestones kit because I thought it would be a great kit to use now and also again and again with my new little nieces.  Currently I have an almost 2 and also an almost 1 year old.  Their birthdays are both in July.  I also have a 3rd new niece that will be arriving in September and it's been such a blessing having the little burst of baby girls in our family. 

I also have a niece and nephew who are teenagers and this isn't to detract from them.  They are awesome and I love them very much.  But it's such a new burst of baby love in our family and it's just so amazing.  You don't really know what you've been missing until you have it and it's such a treasure.  The little hands and feet and perfect little faces.  It doesn't look like I'll be having any of my own as I'm still single and my time is running out, so I'm so pleased to get to experience these little ones in my family.  (And hey, I don't have to do the dirty diapers!)

This is KK.  Her mother rides horses and they own a few so she's been around them since she was born.  This isn't the first picture of her on one but this is the first where she's really sitting up there on her own like a big girl.  The sky was so beautiful and she was so beautiful and it was just the best photo. 

I wanted to carry through the sunshine with the yellow and the feel of being outdoors with the blowing leaves.  The journaling is a bit stream of consciousness but from the heart.  I do love this sweet girl.

You can find the One Little Bird Milestones kit in her store on The Lily Pad web site.

Happy Monday and I hope you all have a great week!

Shellie: 12 x 12 Digital Scrapbook Layout using One Little Bird's #Hangry

 

I've mentioned previously that I am one of the guest digital creative team members for One Little Bird during the month of May.  One of her new releases were a set of digital brush stamps and journaling cards called #hangry.  These were actually released in physical form in the Kelly Purkey shop a while back and sold out very quickly.  So this month Peppermint released them in digital format in her shop on The Lily Pad store.

These really excited me because right away I spotted a stamp that hit near and dear to my heart.  Or I guess it hit below my heart right in the area of my stomach!  There was a stamp that said Burger Addict.  Um... yes please.  Me!  *raises hand*

I LOVE BURGERS!

This photo was taken on our last night in Las Vegas.  I can't believe it's been a year since we returned from our Vegas trip.  What fun.  I loved that trip.  It felt like a grown up vacation and I haven't had many of those yet. 

This layout was fun to make and there were so many items to use in these kits that coordinate so well together that it was actually hard holding myself back.  I had to delete a few things when I was done because they were just too much.

Besides the #Hangry stamps ( I used it that awesome burger addict stamp to create the piece of flair shown in the layout above) and Journaling cards, I also used items from her Nosh kit and also Prix Fixe kit.  I also used one of her sketch/templates called Flight Plan 28.

I posted this layout on instagram a few days ago and needed to catch up here as well.

Hope you are well and that this burger didn't make you too hungry.  Sorry.

(LOOK! That's me there in the footer! Heee! Okay, I'm done. I just had to squee a tiny bit. I'm so excited!)

I'm super pumped that this month I get to participate as one of the guest digital creative team members for One Little Bird.  OLB has been one of my very favorite digital creative sources for a very long time.  This year I applied to be a part of her CT and while I didn't make the year long team, I was still so pleased that I was invited to be a guest for the month of May.

This weekend at The Lilypad they have released their BYOC (Build Your Own Collection) line and OLB has a new and beautiful kit called Character Study.  (It's on sale this weekend for 30% off for the NSD celebration through May 9th.)

This was my project I completed with this new product line. 

Doing this journaling really made me think and I really loved working with this kit.

(Just a little secret... I made this layout FOUR ways.  I couldn't decide.  It took me probably 20 minutes to decide which one to submit.  Shhh, don't tell!)

Thanks again, Peppermint, for letting me play along this month!
