A little bit of this & that!!!

So did everyone have a wonderful Mother's Day weekend? We did! It was filled with some household chores including cleaning our deck on Saturday, but Sunday was pure relaxation and time with my nieces and my Mom. My Mom loved her gift and card...especially the licorice jelly beans!
Here's a little peak at some of the sweetness from this weekend...
And all the ladies together in ONE photo!
Total shocker that we got ONE decent photo of all of us!
And this lovely from my Mom's yard...

Now for the scrappy stuff!
Today I am sharing my latest reveal as a CT member with ACOT. I was asked to use the Thrift Shop collection by October Afternoon and I loved every minute working with it! I love the perfectly primary color combo of red, yellow, blue and green! It is one of those collections that just makes me happy on the inside!!! Below are my projects and if you are interested in reading my full reveal article please pop on over to ACOT and check it out!
One of a Kind
Memories of You
Papa Read to Us!
and some cards...
You & Me

Thanks for your visit! I love reading your comments and really appreciate your visit!

Happy Hugs!


  1. Holey Moley woman! You have been BUSY!!!!! I love all of it (but the card with the pretty flower steals my heart).

    Happy Mother's Day HUGGGGGS!

  2. Great layouts! Boy your nieces are really getting big. Did you hear that Making Memories store is closing??

  3. Juliana, I do love this October Afternoon set of papers - they really are bright and happy! But even so, what you've done with them is pretty special. I especially like "Made with Love" and "Papa Read to Us"... the "basting" on your pattern piece is great, as are the cut-out flowers, with little red button trims. I like the way you've combined the photos - multi-picture layouts can be so tricky.

  4. OMGosh! Great pages and cards! I really LOVE the first page with the sewing pattern paper and how you hand stitched it! That one is worthy of publishing! :)

  5. Happy Mother's Day and AMAZING OC projects. Love that family photo too.

  6. Hi Juliana, So glad you had a wonderful Mother's Day, I did too! Love your ACOT projects - that's a lot of scrappin'!

  7. beautiful work, Juliana! I adore that first page so much!!

  8. WOW!!! so many gorgeous layouts! but i must say i really love the first one {Made with Love} - maybe it's the sweater your wearing... :D
