I love the city of Paris. There are so many enchanting gardens and city parks, and it is so delightful to spend the day wandering the city taking in all of the beautiful scenery. I took this photo of my sister outside the Louvre museum. I love this paper with the softly colored birds and flowers, they seem delightfully whimsical to me, and remind me of the charm and joy that is Paris!

As always at CHA, there were lots of new collections that were cute, but one stood out hands down above the rest. It was the gorgeous Nantucket collection from Pink Paislee! I loved the colors, the ephemera, the awesome wood shapes and most of all the clear stamps. It was the only collection that I knew was an absolute must- must have! Now I finally have most of the collection and I am so excited.

I love mini-albums and have always wanted a place to keep some of my Grandmother's favorite dessert recipes. As soon as I saw the Bo Bunny Sweet Tooth collection I knew it would be perfect. This collection has a lot of great journaling cards, so when I see my Grandmother during Thanksgiving I am going to have her write down the recipes in her own handwriting. That will make the album extra special!

Happy 1st day of summer!! I love the On the Boardwalk collection from Graphic 45, and since I live by the ocean, it is perfect for lots of fun summer beach activities. The papers have such pretty colors and a cute water appeal that you can easily use it for poolside fun, a day at the lake and even a cruise.

The entire Madeline collection from Prima is so beautiful, and I think the Bella Donna paper is one of my favorites. There are so many ways you can design with this piece. I cut out around the flowers and scrolls, and then mounted it on a sky blue piece of cardstock that I had glittered. I glued the photo on a 6x6 size of "Ste.Marie" paper and cut the letters out of "Spring Tide." The spring tide paper is so pretty, because musical notes are always a favorite, but Prima made this one in a beautiful aqua color. I embellished the papge with some Prima flowers and some extra flowers and a butterfly from Michael's.

I love the colors in the BoBunny Gabrielle collection, the blues that turn into a rich teal and the soft pastel oranges that turn into a bright orange, they all combine so beautifully. I made this mini album as a design team project for my LSS "Memories Live On" in Cupertino, California. I didn't add any photos because I wanted people to envision their own photos inside and what they could add to personalize it for themselves.

I absolutely love the Prima Madeline collection. So many pinks and flowers (my favorites) and I really love the soft blues and greens, those would also work great with boy/masculine pages. I made this card for a friend and took the photo in my hydrangeas that are just starting to bloom. I love the Prima rose blossoms, it feels like I just plucked them out of my garden and am sending them to a friend.
