"...and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than sould can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)"

-E.E. Cummings

Once Upon A Sketch in February!

The second challenge of the month at OUAS was totally perfect!! I had one more picture from our trip to Galveston that I needed to scrapbook, but simply couldn't find the inspiration to do it. But this sketch combined with the journaling prompt about your favorite vacation certainly gave me the kick-start I needed:

As always, I love the sketch! Here is my page:

The journaling says "My favorite family vacation is the one I shared with Mom and Dad in Galvestion. We had an amazing time soaking up the sun." I really loved the way the colors came together in these papers with the picture I took the last day of our trip. I also have to say, I'm pretty excited about the flower in the right hand corner, as I used a new technique I had never tried to make it. I really enjoyed making this page, and love the way it turned out. Thanks for stopping by! :)

White With 1 in February!

White + Lemon + Three photos!! Could this be more out of my comfort zone?! Haha, I never use lemon, and very very rarely incorporate more that two photos, however, this challenge ended up being one of my favorites! Perhaps the fact that it took me so far out of my comfort zone is the reason that I enjoyed it so much. Anyway, without further ado, here is my layout:

I tried some new techniques on this page, and I really like the way they turned out. The two flowers on the page are quilled, which is a really fun way of making your own embellishments that I had never tried before. Also, I punched holes and ran yellow ribbon through them around the edges of the page, which helped create the "fun" look I was trying for. I am pretty happy with the way these pictures of my oh-so-silly friends and I worked on this layout. Thanks for stopping by! :)

Sketch Along Tuesdays #33 at Frosted Designs!!! :)

I've been following Frosted Designs for a while, but this is my first time to enter! I'm pretty excited to take part this time, and am super pleased with what I came up with after being inspired by the following sketch:
I love this sketch and the CT team's work! I've been needing some inspiration for multi photo layouts, and this one did the trick. So, here's my page!
I used pictures from my trip to College Station for this page, and I feel that it turned out nicely! :) For some reason, the picture is looking a little tilted, but anyways, the title is "Unexpected Places", because Dillon, Kaleb, and I found "Bottle Cap Alley" in this random part of town, and it was such a cool surprise. I love this page, and am thankful for the inspiration that Frosted Designs provided! Thanks for stopping by! :)
