So Tired ...

Hi, everyone! I have said goodbye to my sister and her boyfriend and I am super exhausted. The visit was wonderful, but there were just too many late nights of partying in a row {followed by too many early mornings of activities} for this sleep-loving gal.

I just wanted to quickly post the layout wall hanging I made during last Thursday's evening UStream as a gift for my sister. The title is "Sister by Chance, Friends by Choice" and the pictures are from my wedding:

The layout is made with papers and alphabet stickers from the Basic Grey "Capella" collection. Other embellishments came from Clearsnap {ink}, Lace Heaven {lace}, Prima {pearls} and Wild Orchid Crafts {flowers, leaves}. I also used some assorted charms from my collection on the project.

Here is a close-up of just the layout, without the hanging. You can click on the photo to see it larger in a new window for even more detail:

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoy the layout. Now, I'm off for a nap!

Life's a beach. Scrapbook it.


  1. This is even more beautiful when we get to look at it up close. It came together beautifully and should be a gift to be treasured for generations to come.
    Not only did we get to watch you create it but it was simply a pleasure to be able to "meet" Liz. I am glad you had such a fun filled (if sleep deprived) weekend.

  2. I like the upclose view. Glad you had a great visit. Go take a nap!

  3. Very pretty - I need some of those flowers! Love the layout. Must be nice to be the relative of a scrapbooker! LOL!

  4. Thanks, guys! :D I was so happy with how this turned out that I might make more of them for around the house. It was a relatively quick and easy way to get a beautiful photo "framed" and onto the wall. Glad you guys got to meet, Liz ~ that was fun! We chatted a little after we signed off & she said she loved the clapping smiley applause you gave her!

  5. I love how this turned out...sorry I just left mid stream...Cole turned the computer off on me and I lost chat so I didnt bother coming back on! kids! lol I'm guessing u didnt get to hang it in the bedroom and see how long it would take her to see it since she came onto the ustream at the end!?

  6. Yeah, I ended up just giving it to her on camera, since she came by at the end to say hi to everyone. It's recorded if you want to see it!
