Ahoy Captain! - Pirate Map

I know I'm a little late to the party but look how fun this is. I created an authentic looking map for my nephew as he dressed as a pirate for Halloween. Actually, my sister, her husband, 2 kiddos, Grandma, and I (Aunt) were a gang of pirates.  I even designed the map to been based on the area they live in which is surrounded by mountains with two lakes.

Rustic Horse Card

Oh, how I wish I could draw!  Something so beautiful from a few wavy lines!  I can proudly say I shaded him with watercolors as the stamped image was purely a line drawing.  Then I created a rustic feel with woodgrain paper with delicate wildflowers. I added a border of faux stitching and a flower cluster to complete the card.

Sea Princess Headband - The Robin's Nest DT

If you need a last minute costume accessory idea, this is the perfect addition for a little ones costume. I decorated this headband in under 30 minutes. Headbands are great because the kids can easily put them on themselves, they stay on better than hats, and there are endless possibilities for decorating them for any theme. You can find the complete tutorial HERE.

Life Is Beautiful Layout

I loved the natural elements of the moodboard and emphasized the woodgrain, meadow wildflowers, kahki color, and homey feel of the rustic images. I added faux stitches with a gel pan to create a patchwork quilted appearance.  Here is my layout Life is Beautiful.
