Hello Friend

Oh it's Thursday!

I love Thursdays. 

Why?

Because the next day is Friday. I love anticipating a good Friday! 

And then it will be Saturday. 

TWO great things are happening this Saturday.  The first is, Chipotle is finally opening here in my hometown. I am so excited. I miss having a Chipotle on every corner. It is my comfort food! 
The second thing is, one of my dear friends is visiting from out of town. It's going to be epic! 

Speaking of friend...  I am still seriously crushing on the True Friend collection from Fancy Pants. It's so pretty! 


This card came together really quick. I love it when that happens! Some simple layering, utilizing the color palette to create balance and those tags make such perfect sentiments. 

You can still grab some of this darling collection in the Paper Issues store! Use code melissa20 to save 20%! That's a pretty sweet deal. :)

Have a wonderful Thursday!

Supplies: True Friend by Fancy Pants, September Skies wood veneer by Heidi Swapp, kraft cardstock by Bazzill Basics Paper.

Thank My Lucky Stars

Happy Tuesday!

I am here to share more with you about this page I created using the November Inside Out kit LUCKY,


Lately I've really been pondering how blessed I am by certain friendships in my life. Especially those who are in my hometown. When I moved away to Chicago, I knew I wouldn't forget or replace those friends.  What I wasn't ready for was how much I actually missed them. So... upon moving back to the Pacific Northwest, I've kind of flung myself back into these friendships but, with more gusto and with more appreciation. There is no taking for granted going on right now!


I played lots with the stars and shimmer on this page. I wanted it to sparkle and exude how priceless and wonderful it is to have friends like Julie in my life!


Our visual journaling pages can either go into a lot of depth or... like this page... can be so simple and to the point. There isn't much more to say! I love this lady. I'm thankful for her and I love how having her in my life makes it sparkle! And I think this page really embraces all of that. 

Thanks for swinging by today!
