New Goodies

I'm excited to show you the pages I created this week. I just love the creative teams I'm on. Linda and Erica continue to outdo themselves every week, and this week is no exception!

Erica's new kit this week is called Happy Homemaker (you might notice, it coordinates with last week's kit). This kit is packed full of super fun doodled elements!

{This is a scraplift of Happy by iScrap for the Grand Theft Layout Challenge at Scrap Matters.}

LDrag Designs' new kit, Tangerine Twist, is absolutely gorgeous. I'm so in love with the colors! It was just begging to be used for a clustery, flowery page, so here's what I came up with...
36 weeks

I'm thinking it's about time for another template. It's been a while. So, stay tuned! :)

The Quilt

I finally finished baby girl's quilt, and I'm so happy with how it turned out!!

Baby girl's quilt

I have been planning this quilt for months, but once I found fabric I liked and actually got going on it, it actually came together quite quickly. I think it helps that I did big old 8 inch squares. That and I tied it instead of quilting it.

Baby girl's quilt

Mostly because I'm lazy, but also because the minky fabric that I used for the back was too stretchy for machine quilting.

Just look at that soft, fuzzy coziness. :)

I'm just grateful I got it done before she arrived. Three more weeks to go! Maybe I have time to make matching sheets?

Happy Snapper and a HUGE bundle!

LDrag Designs has come out with an awesome and HUGE bundle this week! It's Mermaid Fantasy and it's packed full of good stuff! It's got the fun, girly mermaid stuff, but it's also got a lot of beachy/ocean life elements, too. The Sea Friends Add On is especially adorable!! So, here's what I made with it this week:
Cabrillo Aquarium

Here's a close up of the pages, so you can see the fun elements!

Erica Zane also came out with a new kit this week called Happy Snapper and I LOVE this color scheme! The kit was perfect for scrapping this little moment I captured of my three favorite guys:

You may remember the little hat I made for baby girl not too long ago...
Hat for baby girl

I started a little dress to match around the same time but did get it finished until just last night... finally! It's just a little pillowcase style dress. I wanted to keep it really simple since the colors are so bright.

Now that I've finished up that project, I've officially started on the quilt and I'm super excited about it! It's going to be cute!

FuchsiaLime and Just Married

I'm a bit late blogging these layouts because things have been a bit crazy around here lately. I'm only 4 weeks away from having this baby and I seem to have lost all my energy. ;) Better late than never, though... right?

LDrag designs
was hard at work last week and created these TWO beautiful kits. They are both so bright and fun. I love the pages I made with them.

First is Just Married
Just Married

I can never get over how young my hubby and I look in our wedding photos. We were just babies! :)

The second kit is called FuchsiaLime:

There is a gorgeous addon for this kit as well.
