I Love You Layout

Hi everyone, it's Tuesday and we're back from our trip so I thought I'd take a few and pop on here to share this layout. It's not everyday that I get the chance to sit down and make a page or even a card just for fun, so this felt good:)
I've had this idea in my head for a while now so it was nice to finally get it down on paper

I went through my little mixed bowl of goodies and pulled out a few buttons and things and grouped them together onto of a doily and pulled some of my other favorites from my stash. I layered a scrap piece of gold dot vellum on the side to fill up the page a bit more. 
This picture is of my niece, her momma always sends me the sweetest pictures.
Anyways, I hope you like it:)
Take care everyone, Steph

First Fancy Pants Design Projects

Hey everyone! Happy Friday:)  I'm super excited to spend some much needed quality time with the family and maybe get some of the rest of my assignments done before an even busier next week. Anyways... today I'm here to share with you my two projects for our very first social media Saturday post on the Fancy Pants Designs blog.
These are going to be fun posts basically a round up of all of or at least most the projects and posts from the new Social Media Team. 
Here are my two projects:
This first layout is of one of Bryan's cousins Lindsay, they are a horse family and I've seen her grow so much and I thought it would be nice to document her love for her new adventure...Danali.
I used the Burlap & Bouquets collection on this one, I love the colors: 

and this is the second layout I did for them this month using the True Friend Collection. How could it not remind me of  one of my truest friends, our dog Chevy.

Well I hope that you will check out the Fancy Pants Blog Saturday to see what the rest of the ladies has been up to and posting away for all to see,
have a great Weekend!

Crate Paper Color Assignment

Hello everyone, I'm on the Crate Paper blog today with this post:)  Here is my CP Color assignment:

 Nothing inspires me as much as color does, so this was a fun one for me. I went straight to my Pinterest board called "Color My World" and knew this was the color combination I wanted to use.

Here is the link in case you would like to check it out for yourself: http://thesweetestengagement.blogspot.com 
 I really liked how muted these colors made each other feel, alone they could go bright but together they are almost warm.

Here is my layout, totally inspired by her picture:

I even had a bit of fun with watercolors on this one, subtle background drips in coordinating colors.

The new Notes & Things collection was perfect for this!

These pictures are of my brother and his baby girl, I love them.

Color is always a very easy starting point for me, I hope you will give it a try too.
Thanks for stopping by!
