Some Recent Faves

I've been having a lot of fun playing around with Jillibean Soup lately.  I LOVE all the fun colors and the way they pop off white and kraft backgrounds.

I used a mix of lines for this page....all the colors were great for this picture of my mom and I.  Love how this one in particular shows our relationship together.  We do nothing but laugh.  She is always such a breath of fresh air in my life.  She helps me to deal, and re-evaluate how I look at things.  She's a great listener and always lets me cry on her shoulder, which usually leads to laughter.  She is my biggest cheerleader ;)

I absolutely love the quirkiness to this collection of paper.  As I was sorting through them I loved how the colors played off each other and immediately started designing a page in my head.  It's kinda funny...sometimes I get ideas about a page and have it already planned, all I have to do is find a picture that works with it ;)   This one of Samantha was perfect.  It was the only good sun flair one I got of her so it didn't really have a partner.  It's kinda hard to see here but I stitched some sun rays up in the right hand corner to add some subtle texture.

I love it when pages make me so happy ;)
