First Gallery at Elle's Studio


It's up, the gallery at Elle's Studio is up and it really amazed me. Who knew that there are so many wonderful ways to use these beautiful labels and papers. I made a Valentine's decoration that is hanging in my kitchen...





A semi lovey dovey lay out of Mr and Mrs Sibbet. Before there was Emma and Lily, we liked to travel. We took this picture in France in front of the palace at Versailles. We had a whirlwind weekend in Paris before taking the chunnel to my dear friend Alison's home outside of London. I met Alison in 1994, I spent the summer in the Poconos lifeguarding and teaching swimming at a camp~Alison was the track coach. Our cabins shared a wall and we both were bunked with 9 year olds...hers were sweethearts and everyone would agree that the girls in my cabin were NIGHTMARES. Thank goodness I didn't have to chaperon them, I was at the waterfront all day.

I thought I was writing about my lay outs?


I found this chipboard bird over at Red Lead Paperworks and I covered it with Elle's mini paper. Did you know that Elle's Studio also sells coordinating 8.5x11 Bazzill cardstock? It comes in a bundle and some are dotted! Perfectly matched with the new release.

I used one of the new XOXO extra large journaling spots ...and popped up one of the smaller ones on top of it. I also used a set of the new clear stamps to layer behind my photo.



















We took the girls to Disneyland in December for Em's 4th birthday....so magical. The girls loved the holiday parade and little Lily would not take her eyes off all the dancers, I don't think she even blinked.

I added a little bit of ink around the "believe" flash card to make it pop a little. Otherwise it just got lost with the muted colors in my lo. I love the calendar spots...

Those pretty vintage snowflakes are also from Elle's Studio.


Please check out the entire gallery over HERE, it really is a beautiful collection of cards, projects and lay outs, I really love what everyone added and I think you would too!

Over on the Elle's Studio blog, Elle is having a charitable auction for Haiti relief. She has put together a box full of 100+ products and the highest bidder gets it all!
