Holiday Cards using CD's November Memory Keeping: 12x12 kit!


I had some fun the other night using these beautiful poinsettias that are included in this month's Memory Keeping: 12x12 kit from Cocoa Daisy. The stickers that share the sentiments on the cards are from the Memory Keeping Pocket kit.

Here is a close-up of the felt poinsettias. I added some paper punched circles behind some gems for the flower centers.

I have to admit, this month's kit has me already thinking about Christmas...and I'm not feeling one little bit badly about that! This time of year is so much fun.

Wishing you a productive week in whatever it is that you are trying to accomplish.

Sharing another layout that I created using the November Cocoa Daisy Memory Keeping: 12x12 and Pocket kits! For this layout I had fun using some of the pocket cards from the Pocket kit to create a grid of sorts for the base of my page. 

After forming my base with the cards, I had fun adding photos, stickers, journaling, embellishments, etc. You can see that I broke the grid's form a bit by adding a photo that didn't fit within the size and shape of the grid. It kind of adds interest and breaks up the space visually.

I love our house in the winter so much! This layout truly captures how I feel about it. I used a heart punch for one of my photos of our house too. So sweet!

Have you ever created a layout of your home? Your home in different seasons? Maybe it's time to get it down in your albums! Our home is so very much a part of our everyday story.


Happy Halloween!


Just sharing photos these kiddos so much! They are such good friends, so very thankful that they each have one another. So important to have someone that you can trust and who knows how to have fun...even at the age of thirteen!

These two are both in love with the Beatles, any old music really and of course fashion from the 60s, 70s and even 80s!

They came up with their clothing ensembles completely on their own (knowing they wanted to go with the 60s theme) and it was a surprise when they saw one another and it's funny how perfectly they go together for not pre-planning or coordinating anything!

This was the first year that Zoey went out "trick-or-treating" on her own, without a parent. I dropped her off with her friend and they went around together, stopping in at another friend's house for a bit.

Afterwards we enjoyed some food and good conversation with some friends and called it a night. Zoey said it was her favorite Halloween ever. I wonder if getting to exercise some newfound independence had something to do with that.

Such a fun Halloween! So glad that she still wanted to dress-up and have fun with friends. That's what it's all about. Always. No matter what your age.

Happy Halloween!

Continuing to have some fun creating with the November Cocoa Daisy Memory Keeping: 12x12 and Memory Keeping Pocket kits! It's so fun digging into last year's holiday/winter photos and catch up a bit on my albums.

There was a bit of trouble with the Cocoa Daisy site on the night of the November reveal, so be sure to check back...there are some additional items available yet, but to my knowledge, the main kits have sold out. To get your name on a waiting list in case more items become available again be sure to check HERE.

We actually got our first snowfall yesterday here so it's been only fitting that I've started in on my winter/holiday crafting!
