Hey y'all! Happy Friday!
I just wanted to share some layouts I made with the new MME lines and show you how you can win them.
Today's the last day of the giveaway so make sure to follow my links and enter!
These were for an email blast that MME sent out, so they are a little different than my usual layouts (fewer photos,more product driven, no mixing of brands)…but I love these new lines and wanted to share them.
This one is the Cambridge Court color scheme from the new Kate&Co. line.
I am in love with Kate and Co. It is bright, happy,and fresh.
You can win the entire thing by commenting HERE.
This next layout was made using the Up and Away color scheme from Rhonna Farrer's new line Find Your Wings and Fly.
It's romantic and modern all at once. And I'm not typically a romantic product lover, but y'all..this is a gorgeous line.
You can win the entire thing HERE.
I hope you all have a fabulous weekend! We kick off our Spring Break this afternoon. YAY!
I just got back a box full of My Mind's Eye layouts from CHA.
As I was sorting through them, this one brought a big grin to my face.
And I realized I never shared it here!
One day Sadie and I were bored, so we started playing around with my iPhone.
When I saw the results I cracked up. Guess I know where she gets her facial expressions. HA!
This layout uses papers and embellishments from the Collectable-Notable line.
It's the happiest collection of colors and patterns and I adore it.
I backed each strip with patterned paper and then put washi tape on the left and right borders of the photo mat (the arrow strips are tape).
A scattering of chipboard flowers, enamel dots, and stick pins complete the easy and quick layout.
For those of you wondering how I did the photobooth strips, I used the Incredibooth App (which I LOVE).
Happy Monday y'all!
I have a layout to share today and a a story to go along with it!

For the story on the design elements, etc…you can see the details on the MME blog.
I wanted to tell the story behind the page. Cate and Lucy are SO funny right now.
They laugh at each other, hug and kiss each other, and beat the you know what out of each other. I wish I was kidding on that last one, but I'm not. I'm talking "2 stooges" here. Face slapping, hair pulling, eye poking. Good times.
They call each other "She She"- Lucy and "Cake"-Cate. And I love it SO MUCH I can hardly stand it.
I don't ever want to forget it.
Funny story. Jimmy told me that the other night they were both in their high chairs (quite some distance apart) and Cate started biting her hand…
Sidenote: They are in that "I am two" phase where if you tell them "No" they get so frustrated that they are beside themselves and don't know what to do. They get so frenzied that sometimes they go "ARRRRR" and bite their own hands. HAHAHAH!
I know how that feels…don't you? I might try it, hehehe.
Back to the story.
So "Cake" starts biting her own hand and "She She" starts screaming "Cake NO, no bite!" "OUCH!" and holding her own hand and crying. Bahahaha. Twin empathy?
They are nuts, y'all. NUTS.
Okay, that's it for today. Hope you enjoyed the long rambly story and the layout. 🙂
1.I have a layout up on the MME blog today. It uses the new Valentine's line, Lucky in Love. Are you shocked to know that I love a Valentine's line? Hahahah! Head over to enter for your chance to win the entire collection.
2. I'm so excited to announce that I'm guest designing in November at Gossamer Blue. Please head over to the blog and say hello!
Lori (the owner) and I have known each other through the industry for quite some time. She's an awesome lady and I couldn't be more excited to see her succeed in her new endeavors!
I got my box yesterday and I have to tell you it's amazing. And I'm not just saying that because I'm guesting there. Dear Lizzy and all of my favorite brands…all brand spanking new. I can't wait to play!
h and s have started playing together SO much more, i wanted to make a page about it. this photo is from a birthday party they were at this weekend, they are watching/cheering for some kids that were running in a race.
i have to tell you again (and again,and again,and again) how much i love mme enamel dots and sequins. i am NOT a mist kind of gal. never have been, most likely never will be. i kept trying (because everyone else seems to love mist) but i never enjoyed using it.
that's why enamel dots are the perfect thing for me. they kind of look like splatters. but they aren't messy and it isn't hard to use them. i love sequins for the same reason.
thank you so much for stopping by today. i want to take a second to tell all of you thank you so much for your kind and encouraging comments on my last post. i adore you all. 🙂
Okay, that wasn't much of a blog break. But Jimmy is back at work today (yeah,yeah,yeah) and I am SO dang excited to share this new MME collection with y'all.
I don't combine "business" with "pleasure" very often here. I haven't talked about MME much. But to be fair, this job is my business AND my pleasure. I love MME so much and I have for years. As a crafter I have just been a fan…plain and simple
My favorite collection has always been Stella and Rose. But this new line blows that one out of the water, and I officially (truly) have a new favorite.
So please go check it out and enter for a chance to win…y'all don't want to miss out on this!
I've got a new layout up on the MME blog today. I've been working hard over there …won't you head on over for more photos and details ?
I know I don't do many military pages so i thought it was high time I changed that.
Making this one gave me comfort yesterday and (dare I say it?) made me want to make more pages!
Thank you for every word of encouragement and love that you've shared…every prayer you've said,every email and message you've sent. You guys are the absolute best.
So today is my first big project for My Mind's Eye. A blog hop! I'm so glad you found your way here, I had a blast putting this together and I am thrilled that so many amazing women agreed to join in.
Today is all about celebrating the new My Mind's Eye blog. It's still a work in progress, but I'm pretty proud of it. What do you think? I want to thank the fabulous Jen Allyson for helping me design the blog. She's amazing. 🙂
MME is also celebrating our foray into social media. Twitter,FB,Pinterest…you name it. I'm committed to being accessible and present and so excited to share my love of MME. Have I mentioned how thrilled I am about this new job?
I am. I'm having FUN. I'm challenged, busy, and happy.
I wanted to share a layout I made with lots of MME goodies. My first official layout since accepting the job!
It's not difficult to make something you love with products that are just so beautiful.
