Planner Stamping: April 4 - 10, 3016 Netwon's Nook Designs Summer Scoops

{I'm backdating my posts to the weeks they should of been posted. 4/29/16} 

I didn't intend this layout to be a rainbow, it just kinda ended up that way.  Out of all the birthday paper I have, this set is still one of my favorites.  Since I don't like cake, I decided it would be fun to add these cute ice cream images to my layout.  My birthday is my favorite holiday, so I definitely wanted something fun for this week!

With Brent taking his vacation week off this month and being super busy at work, I've gotten really behind.  I've been planning here and there, but aside from Instagram, I haven't been really good with sharing.  I finally got all of April done and put together!  I have layouts photographed, so now I just gotta get my posts done and get going on May!

Since my birthday was on a Tuesday, I worked.  We celebrated my birthday early on the weekend before and Brent and Boston still owe me a birthday dinner, lol.  But hey, just stretching out my birthday month and I'm okay with that.  My FIL's birthday is also in April, so we all went up to see Brent's older brother Brian and they went to the Mariner's home opening game.  As always, it was great to see all of the family and hang out.  Hope you have a great day!

Planner Stamping: March 21 - 27, 2016

{I'm backdating my posts to the weeks they should of been posted.} 

Traveling this month has made my schedule extra crazy!  I barely got this done in time for Monday and now I'm slowly catching up!  Though Brent and I aren't religious, we are excited to celebrate Easter with Boston.  My mom was always into holidays and I share that passion and fun!

I've been trying to actually use the stuff I buy, lol.  This is the Easter sticker kit from the Planner Society.  I love the bright and cheery colors for spring.  I tried to keep this simple since I didn't have a lot of time. I was also excited to use my new planner stamps from Studio l2e.

I wasn't able to shop ahead of time this year, so you can see I have a lot going on.  I'm happy to report that I have all of Boston's Easter goodies and I have everything for Kelley's diaper cake.  She's due next month with a baby girl and I'm super excited for her.  I lean on the cutesy side of crafting, so I LOVE that I get to be all girly decorating this cake, lol.  I'll share more once I get it done.  I hope you all have a wonderful day!

Planner Stamping: March 7 - 13, 2016 Work Layout

{I'm backdating my posts to the weeks they should of been posted.}

While I was at CHA, I got to meet Tiffany, who owns VillaBeauTIFFul and is also on the Mambi Design Team.  When I saw that she released planner stickers with 'sparkle' on them, I knew I had to have them!  Since I stamp and decorate my personal planner, it's nice and easy to use more stickers in my work planner.  Simple, cute, and functional!

I really love having the extra space to write in my work planner.  I've been debating if I should write more in my personal planner.  I get the most comments on my handwriting, lol.  (Which I do appreciate.)  And while I've been blessed with awesome penmanship, I actually like to stamp.
It's more fun and relaxing for me.  I'll have to switch some stuff up in May and see if I like it.

Pretty much since the new year started, I've been swamped at work.  We've been hiring a lot, training a lot, and launching new products.  Definitely not a bad thing, but just much more than we anticipated.  Especially for this time of the year.  I haven't been to San Diego in it was great to go back and get to spend a few days with Frank.
