Here is my first layout using the February C'est Magnifique kit! I so love the purples, pinks and blues that were in this one!

So this is my niece at her wedding, which Kevin and I attended via Skype. They literally put the monitor on the alter and I got to see her walk down the aisle and everything. Kevin was very sick and didn't have a plate in his head so we couldn't make it to Florida. We even 'went' to the reception and people would sit down and chat with us. Kinda cool, but still disappointing that we couldn't be there.

I have to say that I love the stickles included in the kit. It adds the perfect touch to the frame and the butterflies and I even just put a dot in the center of the small flowers that were in the kit.

I wish you could truly see how glittery this one is. That frame really sets that photo off!

Kevin and I had to spend some time in Pittsburgh last spring and while we were there we jumped in the car and headed first to NYC and then to NJ to see an old friend. It was the first time I had seen my best friend, Bernice, in many years - like 11 maybe?

So this layout features some KaiserCraft papers. Bern and I have both always loved butterflies so it was a given for me to use this line. I also love the soft colors and dreamy designs.

C'est Magnifique January Layouts

I have to admit to being a little intimidated by the 7 Dots Studio Dreamer Collection at first. Once I started though - I fell in LOVE!

Here are my last few layouts of the year. I am so pleased to have actually reached my goal - the first time ever!!

So this first layout is actually of my niece back in the 80's. It's hard to tell in the photo, but she is actually sticking her tongue out with this cute little devilish grin on her face.

And I finally pulled out some molding paste that I have had forever and used it with the Prima Gate template. I almost colored the paste, but at the last minute I changed my mind and left it white. I like it that way - it's very subtle but still draws your eye in to the photo.

This next layout is my son back when he was still healthy and whole. I think this picture makes it pretty obvious how much he put me through, lol. We were at the hospital so often that they all knew us by name.

Anyway, he tells me he wiped out pretty bad on the landing here. I believe it!

This last one is of my Aunt Vicki back when she was in school! I found this photo in my mom's stash of pictures that somehow ended up at my house. Finder's keepers, eh? LOL.
