fall wreath | pink paislee

This is a personal blog. All editorial content and projects are intellectual property of I do receive financial compensation and products from American Crafts to develop certain blog posts, but all of the ideas and opinions are my own.

Good morning!  

This morning I have a fun little project to share with you.  A wreath!  It is a very small wreath so I plan to hang it in my house as opposed to being a front door wreath.  I am thinking maybe above my desk where I can look at the prettiness that is Cedar Lane.  This is by far my favorite Pink Paislee collection.  It is great as a fall collection but is also wonderful for so many other things.  Last week I made a layout with my little girl sleeping and this collection was perfect.  

For today though, a wreath for fall.

It is really simple to put together, too.  I used several papers from the collection (both sides for variety), a wreath from Michaels and a hot glue gun.  The leaf pattern I used is this one from ABM

I had originally planned out the cuts with my Silhouette but it stopped working right as I went to cut everything.  Funny enough I was glad it did.  It took me a little longer to cut the leaves but I love how it turned out.  

Isn't that glue gun awesome?  It is battery operated and has a little light on the front.  I can say for certain my old glue gun may just find itself in the drawer permanently.  

The final wreath:

Sometimes small is just right.  I think this little wreath is a good fit for my minimally decorated home.  
What have you made for your home lately?  I'd love to see!

september blog hop | gossamer blue

Good morning all and welcome to this months Gossamer Blue blog hop.  

This months kits were just amazing.  One of my absolute favorites to date.  

This page is also one of my favorites.  

I have to give you a little back story on this photo from a hike we took around a little lake near our house.  She was in such a hurry to get back to the car to eat lunch.  In creating this page I was actually using a bit of sarcasm.  She is not my adventurous child at all.  She doesn't like bugs and freaked out at all the noises when we were walking.  Not to say she had no fun at all, she was just done.  In spite of that, I did truly love that moment when I saw her walking ahead and forging her own little path.  She is herself no matter what and I love that.

That's it from me today.  Head on around the rest of the girls blogs to continue to be inspired.  Each one of these ladies on the list has something amazing for you.  You won't be disappointed!

i love right now | gossamer blue

Good Morning!  

I have a fun page for you today made with the September Main Kit from Gossamer Blue.  This kit is seriously gorgeous.  It is so full of whimsy.  
This page was literally thrown together by just cutting out papers and seeing how I could fit them on the page.  Sometimes I like to be random like that.  haha  In the end I loved how it came out.  It is ver different for me but I felt it suited the photo really well.

Have you ever just randomly made a page without thought or plan?  How did it turn out?  I'd love to see!
