SPRING BREAK - 2014

Spring Break here at the Brown house.  I was so very excited for it - dreams of finishing pages, lots and lots of pages was what I was hoping for on Spring Break.  Well my dreams didn't come true but I had a wonderful Spring Break.  My mom came to visit and Charese, Grandma (my mom), and I went to the movie Divergent.  Very good I really liked it.  I will save the talking about that for another day.  What I did do on my Spring Break was spring cleaned the kitchen (what a mess but I got rid of a lot) and spring cleaned my office.  It is still a work in progress but I am getting there.  I will post pictures of the transition.  It won't be complete until into summer I don't think.  Anyway the other thing I did was finish these 2 page layout.  I am so very very happy with it  I just have to share.


First of all I just love the title for this page.  I created it with my Cricut expressions.  I made the heart and paw prints, and the (on, my) lasered out of the heart.  Paw Prints were from Paperpups cartridge, Lettering is done with Jasmine, I forgot where the heart was from.  


The background paper is from CTMH For Always paper packet, The lettering is CTMH Champagne cardstock, Heart is CTMH Cranberry cardstock.  The black cardstock is from CTMH as well.  The patterned paper is Lost & Found record it!  Love Love this patterned paper.  I used pastel chalk pencils to do the journaling on the pages.  Love those too.


This is the second page - where I added brads from CTMH too.


My daughter for Christmas wanted a photo shoot with her dog.  So we contacted a friend that is a photographer, Michelle Lockwood Photography, and she did such an awesome job.  I just loved them all.  I have several more layouts to do with pictures from this photo shoot and I can't wait to see how they turn out after doing this layout.   Hope you enjoy them.  Thanks for stopping by.
