Best times ever

It's sketchy Saturday at Paper Issues!  This is one of my favorites sketches ever!  As soon as I saw that big star I was sold!

This sketch was screaming boy LO at me so I used a photo of my son having fun in the pool.  I love to watch my kids playing!

Vroom vroom

Hey everyone, it's time for another Take 5 challenge at Paper Issues.  This is one of my favorite challenges at Paper Issues.  Here's the list for this month:

I always end up using more than 5!  lol   My son doesn't like the camera so when I get an opportunity to take some fun photos of him I go for it and take as many as I can.  This one is from an amusement park.

Lots of new stuff in the Paper Issues store!  Get 20% off with the code michelle.

I focused on the shiny!

Best friends forever

Hey everyone, there's a new cut file at Paper Issues today!  It's a fun one! I decided to use it as a background for my LO.  I really do love this technique.

These photos from my daughter and her 2 best friends make me happy.  I wish I could go back to being 12 years old...maybe just for a day though!  lol

Hey everyone!  There's a new cut file at Paper Issues today!  Did you know that all the cut files at Paper Issues are free!!!  You can find them all here!

I love playing with cut files.  I cut this one out to bring to a crop with me.  I had no plan on what I would do with it.  When I took it out I just started  cutting out some random pieces just to create a different look.  Here's what I ended up with!

Beach fun

Hey everyone, Paper Issues is putting the spotlight on the Beach day collection from Carta Bella today.  I love the bright colors of this collection.  It was such a fun collection to work with!

The photo on this LO is from 2006!!  Seriously, how did my sweet little boy grow up so fast?  He's still sweet but not so little anymore!  lol

I did cut some scallop strips to make a beach wave effect on my LO.  After I added the big title all that was needed was a few embellishments and I was done!
