Two Peas Digest

And once again, it's time for the Garden Girls Digest. Be sure to stop by each and every blog for a peek into what's new and inspiring + fun giveaways here and there.

This is my latest layout in the gallery. A fun mix of the Be Amazing collection by My Mind's Eye and a little trip to Mexico we took.

And a sneak peek of a layout that will be up soon. Just putting the finishing touches on it.
I used a little bit of this and that. And it all went so well together!
One of my favorite layouts from the gallery is this soccer one by Pea Aphra Bolyer. She has an amazing way with color and design.

Five collections that are sitting on my desk right now....(can't wait to start my project with them!)....

Echo Park Hop + Fancy Pants

Welcome to the Echo Park and Artful Crafts blog hop! Leave a comment and let me know which Echo Park collection is your favorite and you could WIN it. Comments will close on midnight EST, 3/26/12. Follow the blog hop below for more chances to win!
I used Echo Park's This and That Be Charming collection to make a card for my son. I love the wood planks in this line and I combined it with a great lattice cut from Silhouette.
I was recently asked to be a Guest Designer over at Fancy Pants. This is one of the projects that I made for them using the Childish Things line. I love the retro colors and whimsy in this line. I paired it with some denim fabric for a boyish feel. I used pinking shears on the fabric to mimic the edges of the filters in the line. This was a fun page to make and I loved using different pictures that I felt captured my son's childhood just "right".

and a little Bella love...

Pictures of my little guy making a Valentine for his favorite girl. This is a mix of Bella Blvd patterns from Winter Wonder and Easter Things lines. I love how Bella's color coordinate line to line. So easy to mix and match like this. The stickers are all from their Easter line, yet they are versatile enough for a Valentine's page. I used the graph sticker to add his sweet little writing. I think it adds a personal touch to the layout and ties in with the theme.
