And I finished another week of PL

I’m really enjoying the Memory Pockets Monthly collections at The Lilypad. This month’s is called Composition, is loosely school based but still really just appropriate for any type of everyday documentation. The best part of MPM is the fact that there are add-on’s available from many of the designers each time. Sometimes, they are themed other times not. But they always coordinate. And I LOVE mix and matching!

It’s BYOC time!

I did three BYOC layouts this month, varied styles as usual. It’s the last month with Amy Martin as she has just announced her retirement from digital design as of the end of August. That’s the end of an era for me. Amy was one of the very first designers to take a chance on me with her creative team. I’ve enjoyed working with her designers and her amazing team for a number of years now and will be totally sad to see her go. But I know she is moving onward and upward to new adventures!

My Tribe – the tribe word art made me think of my daughter’s friends. Her boyfriend has had the same core group of friends from school as a boy. They’ve all grown up together but they’ve never grown apart. They have embraced her as one of their own. It struck me when they moved a few weeks back that all of his friends and his family were there to support them and that really meant a lot to know that she is that loved.

New York City – yep, not everyone has their dad send selfies from the Statue of Liberty! I wonder if he would have thought of it if we hadn’t taken family selfies just the week before.

Not Too Old – the not too old for a fairytale word art struck a chord with me reminding me of a Mother’s Day gift from my daughter

Table DIY – Can I say how much I love having input into upcoming kits? Well, I DO!! This kit from Little Butterfly Wings is tailor made for my daughter’s latest furniture refinishing project. She saw a photo of a two-tone dining room set and recreated it in her own apartment, all pretty much on her own. Go, sweetie!
