Let's Go With June Cocoa Daisy Kits

A long overdue hello and apology for my long absence from my blog. 2015 has turned out to be quite an eventful year, full of some exciting things and some life challenges too.

I will leave it at that for now, as it is much to lengthy a share to post here. For now, I will share with you my creations made with June's Kit, "Let's Go" from Cocoa Daisy.  

This month is full of travel fun although I have used much of my kits to create in a non-thematic way as you will see below. (I did create some travel themed items however too! I couldn't resist!)

This card was made with one of the exclusive cut files and exclusive stamps. Love the exclusive map patterned paper this month as well!

A little dimension added with the baker's twine here and movement to my journaling...

(Photo taken last year on a river cruise in Germany with my momma and big sister).

This layout documents a current life challenge my family and I are going through. Life isn't always rainbows and unicorns and I always want to document some of the "real" everyday struggles as well as the fun times. 

A more upbeat layout here documenting the before and after of my youngest son's haircut.

Hidden journaling beneath the photo.

Part of an insert that I made to go within my two page DITL/Project Life spread (page protector H, I believe)

 Have a beautifully blessed week!

Happy New Year | A Few Things

Hello! Hello! Happy to begin a new year full of new possibilities, new adventures, a new One Little Word,  and goals.

To get you up to speed, my mom purchased a home near us in early December, and besides the usual December activities, Mick and I traveled to Oahu, Hawaii in early December and then the whole family made our annual family road trip to Colorado. Suffice it to say December was a whirlwind of activity, blessings, and adventures. I am happy to finally be home now though,and to be back at scrapbooking and creating.

This is my first layout of the year which I created for Come On Get Crafty and using the Ali Edwards Daily Stamp set and lots of gold goodness. More details on the COGC blog. It documents some of my goals for 2015.

Below is my first creation with October Afternoon goodies of the year. The inspiration for my design was the image of this butterfly-like cloud formation that I captured on the North Shore of Oahu.
It took my breath away with its beauty and significance. It captures the essence of my One Little Word for this year; "courage." #olw

Lastly, I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of my Cocoa Daisy February kits; Journal Entry. In the meantime, here is a sneak of some of the lovely kit contents!!

So, how is the start of your new year going? Any resolutions or are you more of a goal setter? I have a tendency to prefer the latter. ;)

Be back soon!
