Honeycomb Paper Issues Blog Hop

The new theme is up at Paper Issues, and it's a fun, trendy one *Honeycombs*! Hexagons are everywhere, and so link up your projects with that 6-sided shape, or anything related to Bees--if it's paper it counts! Six of the creative team are having a blog hop, and you can win an awesome kit from Paper Issues:

Go here for information on how to win and to link up your own projects. It's also the first stop on the blog hop, so you may want to start there at the beginning if you're not coming from Holly's Blog.

I made the layout above and this next one using the coral version of the Honeycomb kit Cassie has for sale in the shop. Even the tissue paper she wraps your order in coordinates with the kit--I used it above for the flowers and here for a photo mat:
She also includes some die-cut hexagon shapes, perfect for using as a mask with all those fun mists that you buy and never use--hopefully that's not just me, is it? You can buy this kit AND get an extra 20% off your order at the Paper Issues shop by using the coupon code Sukeydookiedoo when you check out!

Here's my last layout--I used the inner part of the paper I cut out to make the frame in the first layout (waste not want not).

Remember to comment below to be eligible for the prize, and be sure to check out all the awesome Honeycomb-Hexagon inspiration all along the blog hop!

First Birthday Sign

I made this birthday owl to celebrate a very special little girl turning one.
Her mama chose owls for the party's theme (Guess Whooo's Turning One), and I couldn't resist making this guy to hang up during the party. I basically enlarged the owl design from the invitation, and then added the feathers on his chest using my giant scallop punch and kraft cardstock. I was inspired by an owl I spotted on pinterest, here.
I used patterned paper from My Mind's Eye and from a DCWV stack I found in Joanne's. Those are vintage buttons for the eyes, and of course, red glitter thickers and baker's twine for the banner!
Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Mother's Day!

These 3 guys made me a mama...and a better person.

I never knew life could be this crazy, but I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world!

Go hug a mom today!

Quick Canvas Gift

I made this canvas to hang in my daughter's room, but it could be a gift for anyone! I was inspired by a quote I saw on Pinterest, but I modified it a bit to fit our family better.

It was super quick to upload my jpg file to Easy Canvas Prints, I love that their site is so easy to use!

This second picture show the colors a bit better--it's a great match for the room!
