So how can one person be super happy and super sad at the same time? I am not sure, but that is how I am feeling today. I am happy because I have a fun project up over at the Kiwi Lane blog today using some of my favorite designer templates (Hello Tiny Brackets!) but I am also sad because this is my last blog posting as a Kiwi Lane Design Team member! That went SO fast but it was SO fun! What an amazing group of people I got to work with!
I also had the opportunity to work with one of my favorite collections from Summer CHA 2013 (see my post here where I declared my love!) the Simple Stories "Say Cheese" collection. It has a Disney vibe, but as you can see above, it does not have to be Disney related!
I made this sign to hang on our front door and it makes me smile every time! The moment I saw that 3x4 card, I knew what I wanted to center the design around. I love our home. I am a huge homebody and occasionally need to remind myself to leave the house just for fun sometimes! The thing is, there were oodles & oodles of sentiments, stickers, papers, cards, etc. to choose from with this Simple Stories collection!
Even better, I was crafty with my paper use and have a lot left to make a few layouts of our Disney trip as well since those layouts are long overdue! You may be seeing more of this in the future!
I appreciate you taking a look at my blog today and I hope that you will take a look over on the Kiwi Lane Blog to see some closeups as well as the process! I also have to say a huge "THANK YOU" to all of the people over at Kiwi Lane. It has been a pleasure working with you. I am blessed!

Hello! Today I am sharing a card that I made for the 10 Minute Craft Dash over at the Pretty, Pink, Posh blog. I love the color combos that Paulina chooses for the various dashes but this one in particular looked like fun! My husband and I have a wedding coming up so I thought I'd play along.
I used some of my Lawn Fawn stamps for the sentiment and the birdies along with my Kiwi Lane scallops border. I also used (mostly) WRMK papers Harvest collection. In order to keep it under ten minutes, there are a few things that I had to forego, but it was a fun little card to make! And, the final time was 9:13!
Also, I want to say welcome to my new followers who joined in on the Kiwi Lane blog hop. It was fun reading your comments! My random.org winner is:
Now that my kiddos are in school, I am so hopeful that I can get more crafty time in! So far, it has just been me playing catch up but I did get a new workbench at a rummage sale this summer and I cannot wait to get it ready to go! I will share my craftiness as I get it done! Until next time...

This blog hop is a little bittersweet for me since it is the last official hop that I will get to be a part of as a KLD Design Team member. What a fun and amazing time it has been to be a small part of such a great company. For my last hop, I used a variety of my favorite templates to create some sweet baby goodness.
I love using the designer templates to create soft, flowing lines and scallops! Layouts seriously come together so easily, especially when I chose to use some of my favorites like Scallops, Tiny Tags and Sunnybrook Lane! (I allowed myself some creative freedom in choosing my templates this month, I hope you don't mind!)
I loved creating a layout of my niece and the photos I took of her as a newborn back in March. I was so happy with how the photos came together and to be able to feature the photos by framing them with the KLD Templates was perfection!
I used some of Elle's Studio Serendipity as well as a bit of Crate Paper's Maggie Holmes collection. Very feminine products and perfect for a baby girl page!
I am so glad that you decided to hop along with Kiwi Lane today! Since this is my last post as a KLD Design Team member, I'd like to have one last giveaway! All you need to do is:
- Leave me one comment below and tell me what you are most looking forward to this Autumn.

(Also, keep in mind that the paper will be awarded to a US or Canadian resident and if the winner is outside of those areas, they will receive a $25.00 gift code to the Kiwi Lane shop instead!)
Now keep on hopping to the next stop along the hop and head over to the lovely and talented Charissa >>http://www.akihasmommascraps.com<< to see what magic she's created for you!
