Welcome, welcome everyone! Thank you so much for stopping by my blog on your way through the hop today. I am so excited to be a part of this group! And so happy to get back to blogging. I've taken a looong absence, and this project was a perfect jump start back into it. So thank you to Kristy for getting me out of "retirement." ;) Actually, this will be my first post back, but the last post on this blog. I've revamped everything and will be moving over to All Around Eye Candy in the next week or two. HOORAY!! It's so close to being done. I will have all kinds of fun things going on over there between my graphic design, interior design, vintage furniture refurbishing, photography, mixed media projects, sewing projects and healthy living tips and recipes. (I DEFINITELY have project A.D.D., can you tell? LOL) So I hope you join me over there just as soon as I get it going. I've set up a facebook page for it in the meantime, so if you want to "like" me there, you'll be the first to know when I'm up and running! ( ) It's a brand spanking new page, so don't be surprised if you're the first to like it. ;)


Kristy, from KLD, sent me the {TINY BRACKET} set of templates. They are the cutest little things! I am seriously in love with them. When I opened the package, I instantly had tons of projects run through my head that I could do with them. I can totally picture them being used to make fantastic little tags!

I ended up doing a layout, using one of Teresa Collins' newest lines Family Stories. (JUST released last week at summer CHA in Vegas!) Lucky for me, a few months ago I had new family pictures done and our outfit colors matched this line perfectly!

I used the bracket templates to create the shapes out of paper for this little cluster. It's so simple!

I absolutely ADORE the sequins in all of Teresa's new lines! GASP! SWOON! I die.
