My favorite Ribbon right now

So I am totally late for the Ribbon party over at Core'dinations!! Last week the design team wowed us with all sorts of inspired creations using May Arts ribbon, Check it out!!!
This chevron ribbon was by far my fave you will see it a lot in the coming weeks :)

For this week I cut a collection of circles and embossed them with a variety of folders, most of them from lifestyle crafts.

Sorry about being late with this one, right now I am literally moving mountains and I will show you some updates on the house shortly. Hope you are having a great weekend.

Authentique and Core

All week long Core'dinations has been cranking out the creations with the brand new Authentique, this nostalgic collection of papers was wonderful to work with . The argyle pattern was one of my favourites.

and the sheet of tag, flags and stickers that went with it were incredible. In the middle one was some  ribbon by May Arts, the canvas texture was just what I felt it needed.

Make sure to stop over at the Core Blog, we are having a great give away and our facebook page is fast approaching 6000 likes and we need your help to spread the word.

Getting out of the ground

So friends I have been a little busy this week  and here is what I have been up too, we the start of good weather we are finally building our house. This is where I find out if my hard work planning and design all come together. I know it does not look like much now, but it is in this moment that this becomes permanent. Today I pour the first bit of concrete and after that there will be no more moving the location or turning it or size changes. I want this to be my family home for years to come, so here is hoping I've done it right.

Naturally I want my kids to be a part of the process, it is important to me that they see the value of hard work. So this is my 4 year old wet dowelling the footing under his room

Here is my 6 year old screeting the concrete under his room, they are each so proud of the space that will be theirs to grow up in.

Lastly this week we have had a Canadian air force salute flying over our house, these guys have been practising formations right over our house and  it is like our own air show everyday.
I love it.

Lots to come next week and I will keep you updated on the progress.

Happy NSD

Good Morning Everyone, this morning I am feeling scrappy, it is so good to feel the mojo flowing again. I am continuing to work on my sons first year 8x8 album and here is the latest addition. Just a note: Anyone who has bought or is buying the new Jillibean Soup Game Day Chilli collection, should buy the Kraft Core pack. SERIOUSLY every colour is perfect it was like they were made for each other.

I took a challenge to "lift yourself" and so I chose one of my all time favourite layouts to use for inspiration.
This one!! I had to remove a photo and simplify a few element because of the size difference, but I love the end result. 

Have a great day, hope you do something scrappy!!!

First Dip

So for today's layout, I looked to the sketch from October Afternoon for inspiration.
It is another 8x8 but this sketch was nice and simple and easy to change to fit my needs.
I used their Seaside collection

I also got out my Core and paired it up with a little spellbinder fish!!

My greatest Journey

 For the next little while you are gonna be seeing 8x8's on my blog. Yesterday my son wanted to see baby pictures of himself, so I pulled out his first year album. Naturally my youngest wanted to see his and I realized that I have not finished it and I have not done some of the journalling in it. So before this new baby arrives I think that I will try and get a bit more into Levi's first year album, starting with this layout.

I used October Afternoon's Rocket age collection, some beautiful Core'dinations Colors and Queen n Co Gems. Lastly I created this little pin set to match, I will admit to being inspired by the My little bit of whimsy set.
