Sumer time fun with Paradise Cove.

1 comment:
I have to be honest this is my very first time using a travel notebook and guess what?  I LOVE it!  Did you know that a travel notebook is included in the Paradise Cove Full Bundle? For my creation today I used the Full Bundle which includes so many wonderful little treasures!
I decided for this particular travel notebook it would be my daughter’s adventures from College her Freshman edition.  She lives away and most of these pictures come off of social media-which makes the journaling portion hers.
My favorite embellishment on this layout has to be the cactus because these photos were taken when she came to visit us here in the desert.
This traveler’s notebook I plan on giving to her for Christmas along with the start of her Sophomore year.  Thanks for popping in today-happy creating!

fighting the croupy crud with On Guard

No comments:
So my boys came home last Friday saying they didn't feel well...they also said 2/3 of the football team has whatever it is.  We started LOTS of fluids, vitamin C and Doterra Essential oils On guard:
The boys are feeling much better and now I am now feeling like I'm coming down with it-guess what I'm doing?  YEP-vitamin C, lots of water, and On Guard!  (*I am not a consultant/distributor for Doterra-just sharing something I like to use!)

Here are some closeups:

This beautiful girl just turned 19 this last week-she was here to visit from college-it was SO fun to go on some adventures and do her makeup!

She was such a GREAT sport-I did a live and I shared it to my business page; Gloss, Color, and Sparkle if you would like to watch it-she honestly CRACKS me up: 

Thanks for the visit today!

I am STILL here!

1 comment:
So the summer and lack of schedule got the best of me NOT going to lie, I am still creating and will be sharing that with ya.  I am going to be focusing on my project life for a little bit-to say I am behind is an understatement, (I got half of last year done-NO worries, the other pictures are printed I just need to assemble!) So while you wait for some creative goodness I have a motivational quote:
