You all know how much I enjoy Monique Griffith's layouts. This is one of her kits that I ordered. I just love it. The kit had a lot of tiny pieces but over all, it was so much fun to cut, & put together. I love the papers that she chooses and wish I only had half of her talent.

I used a lot of stickles and I didn't realize you need to have professional tutoring to use them well. I learned a lot but I know I still need a lot yet to learn.

The cuts for this layout are from Life's a Beach.

This is a layout I worked on at my last retreat. I havne't put a title yet or photos, but plan to do complete that at my next crop. I am also going to put photos of my 6 grand-daughters in the photos. I loved the paper and it has beautiful lines of stitches on the pages.

I cut the yellow journal tag out using the Live Simply cartridge. I purchased the beautiful flowers from Michaels a while back. They are from the Recollections brand. I wish I had bought more. They really enhance the page. The butterfly embellishments were also Recollections from Michaels.
