Is taking a screen shot of my daughter's IG pictures stealing?

Hey there Project Lifers!

Today I will show you how I am incorporating my daughter's college life into my 
project life album. Some may say I am stealing her pictures but I prefer to say I am preserving her dorm life. Now that she is gone at school the few glimpses I see of her is on IG. I love all the pictures she post so I screen shot them  with my iPhone. I then print them through Walgreens or with my Selphy. As I was working on this page she happened to be home. She started to flip through pictures and was so happy to see that I printed them. 
This is my daughter - I actually dropped something off to her and got to snap this picture. I did not even know she took up drinking coffee! lol I used the January Scrapbook kit from Studio Calico to embellish this layout. 

That lil bear is her favorite bear named Rebecca. She got her as a gift from her daycare when she was 2. Rebecca got lucky and still holds her spot on her dorm bed. Ladies.... how could I not document this!?

Here she is at her first tailgate and homecoming.  Ok... now you can call me stalker but she told me she was on the schools Facebook page. Um, I had to people - I had to go on the school's Facebook and screen shot it!

Here is my layout and I had so much fun putting it together! The tag sweet dream is embossed and I would love you to come on over to Stuck on U Sketches
The challenge is to add embossing to your project life page- super easy right!?

Thanks for stopping by!

Brother P- touch Review! Let's label EVERYTHING!

Happy Friday!
Today I am sharing how much I love this P-Touch Brother label maker!
I purchased it with the intentions of labeling all my ink pads. I have not made it that far but def had to open this bad boy up and give it a try!

The P-Touch comes with built in frames ... the hearts were perfect for my new lipstick.

It is so easy to use! It's a mini computer :) I was able to purchase this on sale for $19 at Office Depot (reg cost is $34.99) This handy dandy label maker also will print on fabric labels that you can stick on to clothing! I thought that was pretty neat! 

My new lipstick from Wet and Wild... Fergie is the maker and I had to test it out.
For $4 you can not beat the price. The color is called Old School Glam and I thought the name was so cute!

So here is my lable - I decided to put it on my Kate Spade planner along with some new stamps by Heidi Swapp.
Let's just say love all her new stamps & inks!

Hope everyone's weekend is super fun!

Happy Crafting!!!!

Amy Tangerine Stamp Set not just used for scrappin!

Today I am sharing a layout with the girls over at Stuck On U Sketches. The challenge is to
add Vellum! I hope you will hop on over and play!
I used Chic Tags vellum  and I loved the way they came out over my photos.

I am trying to work on my project life album and who decides to play?
My lil guy... of course I had to start snapping shots!
He was just too cute!

I cut down the vellum and placed it over my photo to take up the white area.

The best part of project life is you get to capture/ document your favorite pictures of your favorite people!  

Sometime a picture is just an awsome picture and no embellies are needed!

Here is my bubblegum and this girl needs a new ribbon. Let the hunt start!

Thanks friend for stopping by!

I would love to see your pics so come on over and link up with us! We have a wonderful sponsor this month and one lucky winner will receive some awesome goodies, so do play along..
A word from The Girls over at STuck On U Sketches:
We would like to thank everyone at
for offering their goodies as our first blog candy of 2014!
Thank you for your thoughtfulness!
They are sharing 2 amazing Tim Hotlz stencils (which are all
the rage right now, such amazing things to do with stencils!)
and 2 super huge Project Life card sets (each containing 60 cards!)

Happy New Year! I hope everyone had an awsome Christmas too!
I love everything about a new year, new month, new week or day!
I am hoping to improve myself as a person. I want to learn more about myself and my craft.
  I appreciate all of you lovely ladies for reading my blog.  

Got my nerd glasses on giving my tired eyes a rest from contacts.

Loved this truthbomb that I found online. It really hit home because why keep what you want a secret!? Let it out! Hoping to go for it this year! I would love to learn:
 -how to use my Cameo and all its features
-master my new Hello Kitty sewing machine
-how to operate Adobe Photoshop
-give my blog a facelift
there... I said it. My secret wishes are no longer a secret!    
Valentines? YES Valentine's Day!
Found these new goodies all under $20 at Target.  

As soon as I got this bad boy home I had to stamp it up! Love it!

Ending with my December Daily Review... fun. It was so fun to capture the month leading up to Christmas.
Def keeping this album out so we can enjoy it yearround!  

The last page my pretty tree with just lights on it.

Happy crafting!
