The one with black and white

Still trying to catch up from November's design team layouts!!!

This line from BoBunny is all black and white and grey and sparkles - perfect for a wedding picture!

I had this photo from my wedding (5.5years ago!) still sitting in my pile of photos so I figured it would be perfect for this black and white paper. I loved the background paper so much so I kept it really simple. Lots of trims, ribbons and washi tape make up the matting of the photo.
Kinda hard to tell since its all monochromatic. The flower is one of the new Basic Grey flowers with a little making memories brad in the centre.

This weekend I hope to get some time to use up my latest kit and take some photos of the layouts on my desk. Have a great weekend,

The one with a New Year...

Happy (belated) New Year to all!!

I hope that everyone had a wonderful Holiday! I took a little non-planned vacation from blogging because there has just been too much going on. Where to start...

When I last blogged we were finishing up our bathroom reno - which is now 99.9% done. I feel like there are a few little touch ups that could be done so I can't say we are 100% there! Once we finished the bathroom I decided that our bedroom looked a little sad. So now we are almost done with that room as well. Our new bed should arrive sometime this week. I will share pictures of both projects soon!

On the 29th of November I celebrated my 30th birthday. Well actually that's not entirely true - I turned 30 but did NOT celebrate at all. We had a small birthday dinner with my family the weekend before and that was it. On my actual birthday I had a meeting until 9pm which kept me busy and made me think about it a little less. lol!

Alain knew I didn't want a big party - or any party - so instead he got me a little something to cheer me up :)

Yes that is my brand new iPad2!!! Its so white and shiny and cool!!! I love it sooooo much. It may also be the reason that I didn't scrapbook too much lately - Pinterest is just so cool on the Ipad... not to mention all the fun games that totally suck you in (My Town, Angry Birds, Mr.Giggles - just to name a few).

I do have a back log of layouts from before the Holidays that I have not had time to share yet... so today I will share a quick layout using lots of great fall stuff from LYB! I love these colours so much! The papers make it easy to make quick beautiful layouts. I added some Studio Calico letter stickers that are some of my favorites!!
The little flower in the corner was made with the 'paper flower kit' which I love. All the pieces match so its perfect!

Have a great week and hopefully I will be back soon with some reno pictures!
