Happy 2012!

Happy 2012!  I hope you all had a fabulous holiday weekend.  Both my boys and my hubby were home last week so it was just nuts around here.  I am still trying to make heads or tails of the post-holiday mess but I figure that's what the (entire) month of January is for, right? ;)

I had a new layout go live in the Garden over at Two Peas In A Bucket today.  For this layout I used the fabulous new Farmhouse collection from October Afternoon as well as the newest Studio AE release by Technique Tuesday - It's Okay.

This layout is copyright Two Peas in a Bucket

These photos of my boys were taken at a local arboretum - there were lots of old barns and farm equipment around and I thought they were just perfect for these products.  I created a simple grid design for my layout using both a mix of black and white and color photos.


For my title I simply lined up the letter stickers across the top of my photo block. The different fonts and colors are all included in the Farmhouse collection and give a really fun feel to my layout.




I used the Studio AE stamps in a few different places around my layout - on tags, journaling blocks, etc. I am such a fan of these stamps and how easy it is to add these to layouts here and there for that easy splash of color and detail.

In other scrappy news there is a fun announcement here on the Scrapbook & Cards Today blog.  I am just so thrilled to be joining the team at SCT as a regular contributor.  Their magazine is top notch and Catherine, Becky, and the other design team members are just amazing.  2012 is definitely starting off with a bang!  Thanks for stopping by!  :)
