A Couple Of New Layouts... Plus A Card!

Does that happen to you - or is it just me??? You start a project with an idea in your head.... which you're super excited about, then when you start to put it on paper, it just doesn't come together.... and you work it... get frustrated... and work it some more until all you can do is scrap it and start over...

Well, that's what happened to me with this "WISHES" lo... I wanted to use some photos of Rainee & Steve skipping rocks (from our vacation), but but I just couldn't make it come together...

But now can I tell you how happy I am that I did scratch the origianl idea and started fresh... I just love what happened... I LOVE the Piggy Tales Sliding Doors. Oh my goodness... what fun are they... I love the peek-a-boo effect of it all... it's just so fun!!! So when all is said and done... scratching a project and starting over can be the best thing you can do... it was for me...
Here is Rainee celebrating her 5th birthday with her papa... it's not of the big birthday bash, we do with her (and still planning of course doing) but this moment is special... because she was able to enjoy it with her papa... I know, for me, it's a memory which will last forever...












My 'envelope card'... this is actually one of those string enclosure envelopes... which I didn't want to just put journaling in or decorate it and send it off to some one... I wanted to do something different... and this is what I came up with... I love the closure and how the flap holds the gift card... a little different, yes?







Anyway, that's it for now... Here's hoping you have a super fab day...

For me, some of my most liberating moments involve the trash can...lol
Starting over also means "beginning again" --- wouldn't it be wonderful if we could do that in all of the areas of our lives that need it?
Beautiful layout, as always - 5 is beautiful and Papa's are precious.

The LO wishes is simply one of the best LO-s I've ever seen!!! I like how everything is conected and some messy effects that bring me the right scrappy feeling.
