Summer Layout

Reminiscing of a great summer road trip with my best friend Sarah... We went on a week long road trip from Calgary to Kelowna, BC. We stopped at so many great towns and attractions. Even found the famous Ogopogo and Sasquatch! LOL We had a few bumps along the way, literally, but it was a fun trip!

Papers and embellishments from Simple Stories. Bits of Summer Line.

Halloween Witch Hat

Why hello blogger world, yes it's been awhile! But alas, here's a fun Halloween project I made a few weeks ago and have been far too busy to post it. This is a cute decoration, or maybe even strap it on your head for a costume! I picked up one of those paper mache hats from Michaels, and decorated it with various Halloween items!  I really love Stampin' Up!'s new colour combo this season, the Basic Grey looks so chic with Tangerine Tango and Black.

Strap this on a headband and you got yourself a costume! LOL, it's kinda awkward...

Papers:  Howlstooth & Scaringbone DSP, Champagne Glimmer Paper (SU!)
Stamps: Letter It, Frightening Feline (SU!)
Embellishments: Tangerine Tango Pom Pom Trim (SU!), Grey Zipper ribbon (Maya Road ), Scallop Muslin (Pinkpaislee)

Spa Day!

I spent a relaxing afternoon with my mom at Hannah's Euro Spa in Thorold, ON. My lovely friend Carrie is the owner and does everything herself! We had her new Thai Foot Massage and I also had a pedicure with bright coral nail polish! Carrie just moved into a new house and made the front of it into her spa. The decor was beautiful and very inviting! I wish her all the best in her business!

Thanks Carrie for a great afternoon!! Love the Chai tea with Almond Milk!

Flight home...

I flew home to Ontario on a few days ago to visit family for 2 weeks. I got some nice photos to share of the past few days...

Leaving Calgary...with downtown in the distance!

Flying over a lake, but looks like a tropical location...i wish!!


driving from Niagara Falls...gorgeous sky!

Driving back to Niagara Falls for dinner...nice sunset!

Off to spend a spa day with my mom!

Crazy Hail Storm!!

If you live in the Calgary Area, or Alberta in general, you're used to crazy hail storms out of the blue...but this was the first one I've seen with hail the size of golf and tennis balls! Insane!!

Vintage Postage Layout

I had fun making this layout! I had this photo of my brother Taylor sitting on my desk for awhile, I just needed the right inspiration, and papers! Everything here is new products from Stampin' Up! including Postage Due stamp set, and coordinating papers...I love the new Chevron Embossing Folder too!
The background paper is already embossed with a woodgrain on it, but I stamped and spritzed it, then wiped off the excess with a sponge.

really love this look!

This was the day I surprised him for his birthday this past was such a great moment seeing his face when he saw me come out of the kitchen...I'll never forget it!

Lola's Layout

I made this quick and easy layout using the Afternoon Daydream Simply Scrappin' Kit from SU!  I love the colour combo. Gray is one of my fave colours right now. This layout is about my Lola, the cutest kitty around!

I showed her this scrap page, and she loved it...even stepped right on it and creased the cardstock! LOL sweet!

Cotton Candy Hair!

I bought some fun hair extensions from Etsy, thought I'd share!

I got some pastel pink, and then the ombre teal.  And don't you love those neon pink earrings! I'm totally addicted to neon again...what goes around comes around, eh!?  I'll post my new neon stuff soon, including my awesome toe nail polish..neon yellow! You can see me from a mile away! LOL

  I like it braided...I only got 2 of each colour, so can't really wear it down...but it's just for fun!

Some Foodie pics

Here's a few pics of some healthy options I've made this week...
This is my organic spinach salad, with quinoa, avocado, grape tomatoes, fresh corn from the cob, red onion and feta cheese.

The quinoa was actually leftovers from the night before. I had made a quinoa 'risotto'.

I cooked the quinoa with chicken stock, added red onion half way through, cooking til all the liquid is absorbed. With just a bit of liquid left, I added the fresh corn and peas, finished cooking. Then at the very end added the diced tomato and feta cheese.  It was such a great meal! Honestly if you haven't tried quinoa, do it! This will save the world from starvation one day....complete protein, gluten free, source of fibre, calcium, iron...the perfect food!

Here's my breakfast right now...

I got a free 2lb box of blueberries at the Superstore a few days ago, it's hard to eat that much! LOL  I'm having a couple handfuls with Kashi high protein cereal and coconut milk. I no longer drink dairy milk unless it's in a coffee...But I only buy coconut or almond milk now. Delish!

Rustic Altered Frame

I know, FINALLY, I post a craft project!! I spent yesterday cleaning and organizing my craft corner, what a mess! I feel like I can breathe now!  So I've had this frame for awhile, it's from Winners, I didn't weather it myself. When I was cleaning I came across this 5x7 photo of me with my Gran and Gramps, so I slipped it into the frame, then added the little vintage details. Super quick and really easy for a gift! But I'm keeping this one for myself...

This sentiment isn't a stamp, but its from the new Fan Fair DSP. I'm totally in love with this paper, such beautiful vintage patterns, including lace, postage stamps, keys, eiffel  tower, bicycles...adorable!

The postage stamp, is actually a stamped image from the new set Postage Due, then punched with the postage stamp punch. And the Naturals Buttons are a new fave, they look like wood!

Lola hung around the Big Shot while I worked on this...she's a great little helper...

My Big Shot needs to be dusted! LOL
