With Granny

Hi everyone!!

Today I am bringing to you a new Things That Shine layout.  I have to tell you the more I work with Ashley’s kits the more inspired I become.  I was planning to say that this is my favorite layout to date, but I actually have a new layout in the works that is fast becoming my new favorite.  That’s a good thing right…to always love the project you are currently working on the most!!  🙂  For this layout I used items from these Things That Shine kits: Celebrate Summer, Spring Showers, and Leaves are Falling.


I went back in time for this layout.  This is a photo of my mom holding my son.  They both look younger, LOL! (Sorry Mom!)  I just love my son’s serious face and my mom’s apparent joy.


Two sweet birds, a cross stitch rose, polka dots, and a doily…these Things That Shine really emphasize the theme of grandson and granny,


with thoughts of love,


and cause for celebration.

And now for a DIY photo corner:


Just trim off the corner of any envelope with patterned scissors and slide the new fabulous corner over the photo!



Thanks for joining me today for this post that started out the same, but ended a bit different.  For all these lovely goodies please visit Ashley Calder’s Esty Shop Things That Shine.  When you receive items from Ashley you will feel like a special gift has come your way.  So treat yourself to a wonderful package of beautiful fun!

I have a mystery project in the works that is just about finished and I will share it here soon, so stay tuned!

Have a happy day and go make stuff!!  🙂
