Happy Heart Layout

 Hey everyone! Thank so so much for taking the time to stop by and visit, it's been a busy week here on the blog and I have to say that I am kinda proud of myself for keeping up.

The other morning while Brady and I were cuddling and having a tickle war we took a few selfies. 
You know the random ones where your two year old is never looking at the camera expect for one second intervals? Yeah those. So I was continually snapping as many as I could of us hoping to get at least one where we are both kind of looking at the camera at the same time and this one was accidentally captured...


Be still my heart I loved it and I couldn't wait to get it on a page.
For some reason making this one felt like a bit of therapy, I just took out the things I love and played.
I still have tons of Crate's Open Book collection from the DT so I pulled out some of my favorite pieces and started creating.
Here it is:


I'm sure all of you mommas out there know this feeling of just finding your peace in a quite house, may it be crafting, yoga or whatever it is you love doing as a little escape, there's just something about it that fills your heart and recharges you.
I'm curious though, what are some of the things you guys to to take a load off when things get crazy?
This mom can use all the ideas she can get!
Can't wait to hear what  you have to say, and again thanks for stopping by!
Steph.

Doodlebug Happy Go Lucky Layout

Here is my post from the Doodlebug blog today!
Hi everyone! Stephanie here today to share my latest Doodlebug layout with you using the new Happy-Go-Lucky collection.
Since St. Patrick's Day isn't really a holiday we celebrate in our family, I decide that it was the perfect collection for me to use to share how lucky I am to have our little family.

I'm The Lucky One: 


For this layout I started with my background. I used my Silhouette to cut out this shamrock cluster with the St. Paddy Plaid paper. I liked it but felt that it needed other shades of green so I cut it again using the Leprechaun Polka paper and layered some of them on top of the existing ones.


My title was also a cut from my Silhouette, after I got it all put together I layered on the "Lucky" sticker from the Icons Cardstock Sticker Sheet. I liked how it introduced some yellow gold into the layout and I added the two little boy and girl leprechauns on each side of my page to balance it out.


To finish off my page I used some of the Doodlebug washi tape around my page as a border then sewed around it. 
This is such a fun collection and I can't wait to see how everyone uses it!
Thanks for stopping by today,
Stephanie.
