Sorry there was no posting over the last week. We were in England for a much anticipated wedding and the days got away with me because of all the planning and last-minute things we had to get done before we left. I'll update on that later, though, because I have a really fun paper pack and accent pack that just went on sale today! :)
Last May I went to Santorini with a girlfriend (the one who just happened to get married on Saturday) and I was just so inspired by all the gorgeous colors of that lovely island. :)
So, I started created Kamari Beach almost a year ago and it took me that long to get it just right! LOL ;)
And the brand new creative team at JessicaSprague.com has really rocked this kit! They are totally blowing me away!
Thanks so much for stopping by! :) I hope you are having a wonderful Tuesday! :)
So excited about a fun new product that's debuting today! :)
I love having good basics on hand when I create my pages and projects. This little note is sure to find its way into so many of yours. I love the faded journaling cards. They're so soft and will blend with and compliment so many, many kits.
If you're looking for something a bit louder, tho, just crank it up a notch!
You can totally use these little beauties on their own, too, though! Love this card idea from Kari.
Thanks so much for stopping by! :)
So excited to announce my new digi home! I've been asked to join the oh-so talented ladies at JessicaSprague.com! I am nervous and shocked but also really REALLY excited to be there! To celebrate I have some fun new products in my shop.

We are having lots of fun this weekend decorating eggs and getting ready for our egg hunt.
Colin's scary Easter bunny egg that Mia, in her backwards pajama top, just adores.
We have friends coming over but I wanted to keep it simple so we're just having pot roast a la Pioneer Woman. It is a fabulous recipe.
I've been finding lots of Easter related artwork around the house which has been surprising and incredibly adorable.
Lara's little Easter scene she made for a friend at school.
I'm planning on keeping these. I've been wanting to have more seasonal decorations throughout the house but I don't just want any old "decorative" thing from some store. So, we're keeping all the girls' Easter art so we can bring it out each year and marvel at their little creations. :)
I love the little pom pom eggs. :)
And just to keep things lively...
and honestly I have no real answer. I've been wondering about that, too, and decided it would be fun to record my day.
