My Everyday Life

Those of you who know how I create layouts know I often combine papers from different companies. I find a sheet of paper I really like, then I roam the store looking for a paper to use with it. That is how this layout evolved. I really liked the '10 things I love' pocket embellishment from My Little Yellow Bicycle at Sassy Scrapper. I got one of those then found a sheet of pattern paper from MLYB (Fresh Print Clothesline) to coordinate with the pocket. With those 2 items in hand I walked around Sassy Scrapper looking for another sheet. I found it in My Little Shoebox. Oh my gosh, what cute papers! I chose the cream circular paper with the blue scalloped edge. The four rub ons are from Rhonna Farrer. I am including a photo of the metal container the rub ons came in just in case you have them at home. I used my electronic Dymo label maker to create labels which I adhered to the strips in the envelope. Looking at the layout on screen I'm thinking I might need to add a flower or two on the left lower corner of the envelope. What do you think?

Here are the 10+ things I love about my everyday life:
Being retired with no schedule and sleeping late
Being Mike's wife and having him at home with me
Being Griffin's mom and spending time with him
Enjoying our cats
Surfing the Internet and keeping in touch with others
Reading, Creating, Sewing, Cooking, Napping
Watching television and movies
Taking day trips and going to visit friends/family
Eating out
Having security...spiritually, financially...LIFE IS GOOD! I am blessed and thankful.
