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!

  7. So pretty, love the colours :)
