Guest Star Mandie Pierce!

I am at stay at home mama of 3 and wife to an Air Force officer. We are currently stationed n Northern California. But, we've been as far north as Alaska and as far south as Texas. I started scapbooking in 1999 when our oldest was about 6 months old. I tried to quit once, but it didn't last! (It's too much fun!) I love all of the product, but I also love the documenting our family memories in a creative way. I like to think I am funny; but, in reality, I am just dorky! My husband (Troy) and I watch way too much t.v. We're junkies with a whole schedule each week! Though, when he is travelling, I usually spend my time scrapping or reading a novel. Thank you guys so much for this opportunity to join in the fun, and thanks Stephanie Howell for picking me! :) My blog is: Like a Lemon to a Lime (that came from an old Beastie Boys lyric from No Sleep Till Brooklyn - just incase anyone wondered. lol.)

I used the JB red/ black line. I used the die cut paper as a mask for mist & created a border with 2 shades of mist... Maya Road black licorice and Tattered Angels pearl. For the title I used one Jenni's new inks "Chili Powder." It was a perfect match for the paper. :) The postage stamps are vintage.

For this layout, I used the journaling cards and mini papers (& a little piece of one of the full sized papers.) This line reminded me of all of the old, family photos my mom recently gave to me. This particular one is of my great grandmother and two of my great aunts.

I really, really wanted to use that pink flower on one of the journaling cards and the pink butterflies. So, I cut the black and white leaves from the Mama's Dress paper. I cut a double circle out and put the leaves on in the shape of a wreath, added the pink flowers and butterfly & done! :)

Such lovely projects with a vintage vibe! Thanks for the inspiration Mandie!
