Playing With Paper Never Gets Old…

I absolutely love my baby sister, Emilee. I am exactly 11 years and one week older than her. For the longest time I thought that I would never have a sister. Brother’s aren’t all that bad…but to have a sister…lovely.

There is such a big gap in our ages that we have never, ever fought. I think I may have gotten a bit frustrated with her once when she was about 3 years old and decided to paint my bedroom dresser with my nail polish. Thinking back, it was totally my fault for leaving my nail polish out in the first place.

Emilee and I are very much alike. I love that.

But I especially love our differences. I am very fortunate to have such a wonderful sister.


Then there is this little darling:

My niece, Addie, turned two in February. I was visiting California and the kids and I were able to attend her birthday party!

This little niece of mine is something else, I tell you. Addie has an infectious smile and a wonderfully sweet temperament. Love that girl!

All the paper and embellishments used in these layouts are from the new Pink Paislee, Soiree line. Fabulous! Wonderful! Love it! This lovely paper came in the mail in my Scrappy Gourmet Design Team box. How lucky am I? Very. Lucky.

There’s some Shimmerz, Pink Stiletto in both layouts too.

Both layouts were inspired by:

Valerie Salmon, Got Sketch

I found it HERE (on the new and improved Scrap N Art website).


Dan, the kids and I are headed to LAS VEGAS this next week. Super excited! I’m sure there will be loads of photos to share! If my posts get a little spotty…well…more spotty than usual, I guess now you’ll understand why.

Catch you on the flip side!

xoxo, Christie
