Wine Time

Using up some older kits and catching up on fun memories that seem like forever ago, but in all reality just several months! :) Took a trip to Napa and Sonoma with my sister in law and we each brought friends to catch up with so maybe catching up should be my title here but I figured "wine" might catch more of your attention!
I put this one together fairly quickly, using circles as my go to to punch out all the cards and memorabilia I happened to collect and actually keep from each winery we visited! I had something from almost every one but as the day moves on and you start sipping wine in the morning, well, you know how it goes, I sort of forgot to grab something from each one...I take full responsibility for that but can't take all the blame because my sister in law, Amy, is on a mission when it comes to visiting as many wineries as humanly possible when we go. I knew this from a previous getaway and the competition continued! :)
I usually print my journaling but took a homemade approach to this whole layout because it felt right! I love the wine bottle on the right side and treated the label as my place to journal. Who knew sitting next to an old friend in church could lead to a wine drinking vacation? I'd call that divine intervention, big time! :)
Great memories I hope to make again on my next adventure to wine country...Amy, if you're reading this, let the competition continue! :)

Project Life, May 2015

Another month in the books, thanks to the May Gossamer Blue kit! Hoping to get to some cards with the remainder yet this weekend. I had a metal drawer organizer sitting out for over a year and realized after trimming out the cut files and laying out all the embellishments and trinkets that come with the kit, what a great way to have all the pieces in view and use what I have on hand!

Here's the left page of the layout...

and the right page...

Hope you're enjoying a sunny Saturday wherever you are! The kids are swimming in our neighbors' pool with Eric this afternoon so maybe I can get a few of those cards created. :)

Project Life, April 2015

Here's a quick update on my Project Life album. Still plugging away and not really keeping up but enjoying the process so I figure that's just as important, right? :)

Summer has officially started here in SD but reminiscing about our fun trip to Cancun with friends several weeks back makes me crave a good mojito and that relaxation that only occurs on vacation!

I used my Gossamer Blue kit from April to complete this is the left page...

A fantastic and fun month. May was, too, but now that June has arrived I'm  hoping to catch up a little, on life and relaxation both! :) Happy Sunday!
