Planner Stamping: March 28 - April 3, 2016 Work

{I'm backdating my posts to the week that is dated in my planner.}  We hired a new trainer in Las Vegas and Melissa came up to Seattle this week.  Cheryl asked me to be there while Melissa was in town, so I went up for a couple of days. 
 
We took her out to eat lunch at Bahama Breeze.  As also, my department always has a great time together!  With my birthday being in just a few days, I also got my gift early.  They got me an Amazon gift card and I used it to go towards a whole set of Tim Holtz distress markers!
 


I used stickers for the Reset Girl for this layout.  I am really into succulents right now, so that's what drew me to this set.  Hope you all have a great day!

Planner Stamping: March 28 - April 3, 2016 - Sparkle Creations Cafe Lucy

{I'm backdating my posts to the week that is dated in my planner.}  I went up to Seattle this week, so it was a good excuse to do a coffee theme.  I was inspired by the Starbucks care you see in the photo.  I picked out washi tape from stash to match.  The little coffee clip, I made at a planner party at Craft Warehouse.

Though I'm not selling stamps right now, I still use my SCRS stamps as I please.  I figured Café Lucy was a good fit for this layout.  I loved using the coffee cup from Sweet Stamp Shop for my daycare icons too.


Here's a picture of Boston at the park before I left to go to Seattle.


We celebrated my birthday early with the Smiths.  I picked Red Robin since it was kid friendly and I could redeem my free burger!  Well, I hope you all have a fabulous day!

Planner Stamping: March 21 - 27, 2016 Work

I don't tend to use purple a lot, but I was really drawn to this sticker set.  Navy has been my color this year and I love it with pink.  I think that's what made me love this set so much. 
 
I didn't have too much going on this week, except that I had a doctor's appointment on Thursday.  With it being in the middle of the day, I took the day off.  It was also Brent's day off, so I got to spend most of the day with him.
 

We had my dad watch Boston so we could just hang out.  With us working opposite schedules and days off, it's hard for us to find time to ourselves.  I hope you all have a wonderful day!

Planner Stamping: March 21 - 27, 2016

{I'm backdating my posts to the week that is dated in my planner.}  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 14 - 20, 2016 Work

I love embellishments! And it's been so hard for me not to use them in my planner.  I am such a lumpy card girl, lol!  As On Trend 2 was getting to come out, Craft Warehouse had the original line clearanced out.  Though I'm not a gold fan, I just love the mint and coral! 
 
I felt like my flowers needed just a little something more, so I put some enamel dots on there.  Yes, it makes my planner thick, but I only keep a couple months in mine at a time, so it's really not that bad.  I love how this layout with this set came together.
 

This week I went down to Las Vegas to help Tami and Melissa train another Mentor Workshop.  Tami and I were messing around with Snap Chat and took some face swap pictures. 


Of course the nerds that we are, didn't take any normal pictures while I was there!  It was good fun though and a fabulous trip to Sin City! I hope you all have a great day!

Planner Stamping: March 14 - 20, 2016 - Stamping Bella Uptown Girls Pattie and Dottie

{I'm backdating my posts to the week that is dated in my planner.}  I originally thought I would do a green layout since St. Patrick's Day fell here.  But since I had to go to Las Vegas at the last moment, I decided I needed something more fun and glamorous.  I decided to use my newest Basic Grey paper, even though I'm still sad it's their last collection.

I actually didn't finish this layout before I left, so that's why it's so empty, lol.  The weekend after I got back, I worked on updating it with all the things Boston and I did.  I don't want a blank week in my planner, so I'm okay with a less complete one. :)


I sure did a lot this week though!  I rushed to get our taxes done.  My cousin wanted to go to OMSI (Oregon Museum of Science and Industry) so I went to meet her to give her my membership card.  Since Boston and I were already there, we went into the 0-6 room and he had a blast playing around.  We also had an in between meal at Little Big Burger and brought donuts home!  As it always is, it was wonderful to see Tami in Vegas and catch up.  We mostly chatted about her upcoming wedding in October.  I'm so excited for her and you all know, I just love weddings!  Well, have a great day all!
