I am all over this week for work. I'm in Eau Claire today and am taking a break in a little cafe called 'The Living Room'. It's my first time but I'll be back. They have comfy leather couches and really good Chai

I think I'm going to take photos of my favorite coffee houses. I have regulars spots all over Central Wisconsin. Wouldn't that be a fun scrapbook page?

TGIHump Day. Here are some more layouts I did as a Guest Designer for ScrapFreak.

69 Remarkable Years

This is my grandparents, Bud and Leona Kline's, wedding photo.

I used my corner rounder to create the vintage curtain looking mat underneath the photo. I alternated between gray and patterned paper. I painted the Riff Raff chipboard with two shades of blue and slightly sanded it. I used ModPodge to adhere the glitter. - I stitched the ribbon around the trunk. I also stitched the bough on with floss.

My FAVORITE part is the glitter I added to the berries. My grandmother (who passed away just last month) gave me the glitter from her craft box about a year ago. So it holds special significance for me. She was an accomplished ceramics painter and used the glitter on her holiday projects.

Beautiful You

Photo of Bennet from last summer.

I cut the busy patterned paper into different width strips and created the background behind the photo.
