The day has finally come! And since you are here, you obviously have been to some of the other blog posts. Since I have alot of photos, I will limit my text. So sit back, enjoy, and be inspired!:)
"Travel Journal" by Sharon Hill
The travel journal is made by using Fancy Pants new Brag Book. I carefully took the book apart and reorganized the pages to the order I wanted the pages to be in. After I finished the pages, I carefully put the book back together. I even had some blank pages left. So I plan on using them on future layouts for journaling. I will cut some in half or thirds to use as journal blocks on the layout. I used some seashells I got at the beach in Antigua on the front cover of the journal. The cover was colored using the new Distress Stains. I used Vintage Photo and used the Distress inks in Aged Mahogany, Faded Jeans, and Walnut Stain. I started each section (port of call) of the book my journaling a little about the island and what we did for an excursion. Then I put photos of the excursion and then in the pockets I put tickets, receipts, brochures, etc. I also took photos of the towel critters and souvenirs I got and put them in the journal as well.
"Post Card Holder" by Sharon Hill
The post card holder looks like a backpack, hence the 2 ribbons on the back of the holder. I got the instructions from Scrapbook-Crazy website but modified it to make it much larger to hold the post cards.
"Paradise Found" Layout by Sharon Hill
So there you have it. Sorry for the long post. I just wanted to show some of the pages to the journal so you have an idea of what to do with the pages. Now the next step is for you to go to the next person in line on the Blog Hop List.
Sharon Hill (you are here)
I hope you all get inspired after today. Have Fun!

I know, I know! It's April. I didn't realize that it has been that long since I last posted on here. So I will skip a couple of months projects and show you all the ones I made from the February MW Express Kit. I loved this kit! Especially the heart shaped box filled with embellishments. It actually looks like a box of candy. In the paper liner cups that candy would be in, the embellishments were in each one instead of candy. So cute! And of course I did all my layouts of the love of my life, my cat Marvin.:) Enjoy the cuteness!
"Love At First Sight" Layout
I cut the tree out of one of the papers in the kit and adhered it onto cardstock.
"The Odd Couple" Layout
I cut out the flowers along the bottom edge from one of the papers in the kit and adhered it to the cardstock after I adhered my photos.
"My Sweet Valentine" Layout
"Marvin's Friends" Layout
"All Dressed Up" Layout
"Love, Bliss" Card
I used the paper doily that I used as a mask for the "All Dressed Up" Layout. I adhered the doily to the front of the card.
"14 Days of Valentines" Tags
These tags you can put any kind of ticket or coupon that you create to give to your sweetheart for the first 14 days of February, one for each day. You could put things like this ticket is good for a romantic dinner, breakfast in bed, etc. Each ticket or coupon is redeemable by you only of course.
I made the roses out of the paper in the kit. One of the papers was light pink with different sized and colored words on it. I used Barn Door Distress Ink to cover all that up to make the petals red to go with the petals from the other paper.
There you have it. All my projects I made using the February kit. This was my assigned month as a MW TeamWorks member so I got my kit early and had a deadline to complete everything. Then my projects were posted on the MW Blog during February along with other projects from my fellow team members who were also assigned that month as well.
So until next time.....
