You BAKE me happy

***** Click HERE for my GIVEAWAY!! *******

Happy Monday! :) Ya know why I love Mondays?? Because I can't wait to see what the new weekly challenges are!! I love challenges... If you have followed my blog for any length of time I'm sure you already know that! 

I've been super lucky to have been able to spend quite a bit of time in my craft room this past week. I love those kinds of weeks. I'm sure as my kids get older I'll be able to find more time to craft, or maybe that's just wishful thinking? What do you think, moms???

So here is my layout for today... Not my best work but I still think it's pretty cute...



I always see people's vintage projects and I LOVE them. Vintage doesn't come overly natural to me so I'm trying to get a feel for it. The picture above was from a really really old magazine I bought at an antique store. 


Here are some details...
  • vintage photo is from antique magazine, I inked the edges with Tim Holtz distress ink in vintage photo
  • doilies are from the Dollarstore, I inked them with Tim Holtz antique linen ink
  • Martha Stewart lace border punch
  • ribbon & pearls from Michaels
  • twine from The Twinery
  • button from my stash
Can you believe this is a CRICUTLESS layout!! Unheard of for me!! 

Both of my girls were born in August so I've been starting to brainstorm ideas for their birthday... Stay tuned because I have a lot of ideas! Have an awesome day!!

Oh Candace, you are so sweet! This LO is just adorable. I love that you share a lot of your mommy moments in your blog. So glad to be a follower of your blog and so happy to have you as a Blend! Did you get to run through the sprinkler? We upgraded to a kiddee pool so I could work in the yard and not trample through the mud LOL LOL
:O)
