Long Time, No "See"?!?!

Hey Everyone!!! I'm betting you thought I had fallen off the face of the Earth!! :) Well, here I am!!!

The past few months have been a little rough in a few different ways.... My daughter, Brittyn, has been sick for pretty much four months straight, and among other things, I found out I was expecting in March. (Can you say "OOOOPPPSY"?!?) I'm starting to get used to the idea now, but it's been a long couple months. :) I actually had to make the very sad choice of stepping down from the EAD Designs team because I simply needed to focus on my family as well as myself. :(

 I'm finally coming out of my first trimester and starting to feel better!! HOORAY!! I was really scared I had totally lost my crafty mojo!! Not saying it's back in full force yet, but at least I'm making progress!! Anyways, onto what I'm sure you're REALLY here for - crafts!! :)

Today is my day to post over at Pink By Design!! Since my goal these days is to work on getting my crafty motivation back, I thought I would work on a layout since they are my FAVORITE type of crafty projects!

The page didn't turn out as I had pictured in my head, but the little girl turned out adorable... 

Of course I had to add a banner as my title... 

I hadn't played with my crafty supplies in so long that I used almost ALL my favorites!! Here is what I used...

- Small Banners stamp set for the banner
- The Twinery twine for banner
- paper from Momenta and Pretty Little Studio
- Enjoy the Journey set for the sentiment
- heart shaped note card from Pretty Little Studio
- crinkle ribbon from 3 Girl Jam
- little girl SVG from The Scrap Chick
- girl's face from Peachy Keen
- sun SVG from Weather Girl at Lettering Delights
- fluid chalk ink 

I hope I will be back again soon with another project!! :)
