Happy Friday! Hope everyone has an exciting weekend to look forward to!  If scrapping is in your plans, I have Mood Board inspiration for you from Mary-Ann and Paper Issues!
This board is gorgeous!  Love the soft colors, but this time the roller skates inspired me!  
 I thought the Sunshine and Happiness from Simple Stories would be perfect. And I used this sketch from Ashley Horton for my layout too! Got to love mood board AND sketch inspiration!
I had so much fun with this page!  If you haven't picked up Sunshine & Happiness what are you waiting for?  It's in the store!! 
Have a great weekend!  And if you get inspired to use our mood board make sure you share it with us over on our Paper Issues Facebook page!

Oh!!! I am loving today's Product Spotlight at Paper Issues!
This line is so bright and happy.  You really can't go wrong with any of it!
I couldn't wait to work with it when I got it in the mail from Cassie.
I mean look at these colors!! 
Because of the bright colors I wanted to use a black and white the effect!
This gorgeous line is in the PI Store so make sure you get yours.  Or if you already have could always use more!!

Need a good challenge to get you scrapping?  Well, then you need to start with the August Take 5 Challege from Mary Ann!  Here is the list Mary Ann created and all you have to do is pick 5 and start creating! You can always use more than 5 like I did, since I just couldn't stop adding things to my page. 

The color combo is my favorite! So easy to use these colors. 

Don't you just love that polka dot paper? It's in the Paper Issue Store if you feel the need to buy a sheet. Or two or three sheets!

Good Morning!
It's time for a new Challenge from Paper Issues! Lisa's challenge is for you to "Go For The Gold"
That could by travel, someone's accomplishments or just using gold! (you can see more details on the blog) I went with achievement or accomplishment.  The picture I used is of my daughter after she showed for the very first time.  It was right when she finished and was leaving the arena.  Love her face.  Totally happy and totally relieved!  We were so proud of her!
I'm sure you have lots of pictures that could fit this challenge!! Get them out, create a page and share it with us!  Can't wait to see what you all come up with!

Hello everyone!! I can not believe it's already July. I don't want summer going too fast.  Of course the beginning of July means new challenges at PI so that is always exciting.  Today I am sharing a layout for the Pinspire Me Mood Board.  It's always!!
Look at the gorgeous colors!! Surprisingly, I didn't go with the colors.  
I went with the yummy S'mores!  
Had to use a few pictures from a few years ago. 
I also like the wood grain in the beer picture so I grabbed some Simple Stories wood grain paper from the PI store!  
Kate wasn't too thrilled that i used this  picture but I love it!!  It shows how much she loved that s'more!  
So it's your turn to create something based on the mood board!  Make sure you share it with us on the Facebook page!
Thanks for stopping by!

It's the first Tuesday of the month! That means there is a new Take 5 Tuesday over at Paper Issues!  I love doing this challenge. It's simple but really helps me get a page done!  The hardest part is choosing only 5 items for the list Mary Ann gives you to choose from.
(I usually end up with more than 5) Shhh...don't tell. 
This months' list includes wood grain paper...had to use the wood grain paper!  I knew I had the perfect picture for this paper.  Look at that adorable goat!  He sat with us for a long time while we pet him.  I just love goats so I had fun scrapping this page!  
Now it's time for you to head over to the blog  or Facebook page to check out the list.  Pick 5 of your favorite things from the list and start scrapping!  If you get a page or card done, make sure you share it with us!  And don't forget to stop by the store if you need to refill on some supplies.
Use my code for 20% your entire order!
Thanks for stopping by!! Happy June!

Happy Friday!!
I am finally able to blog again.  For some reason I could not post a picture to my blog.  And now it seems to be working just fine.  So I can post some new pages from Paper Issues.  Today the June Pinspiration Board is up on the Paper Issues Blog and the Facebook page!
Here it is.  This board is gorgeous.
My layout was inspired by the sun.  I just loved the colors. 
There is so much on the board to inspire a page, project of card.  Hope you will share your work if you get creative.  And, if you need some new stuff to scrap with, head over the the Paper Issues Store.  There may be a little sale going on there right now!  
Thanks for stopping by!
