Use Your Stuff # 360 - Mood board

Good Morning and Happy Memorial Day, welcome to today's challenge:

This beautiful Mood board is your challenge, take it in any direction that speaks to you it's got such a summer vibe to it :)
Tina here as your host this week. The top left corner water color spoke to me, reminded me of the trip we took to the Greater Cleveland Aquarium last year:
also I included a border arrows and most of the colors in the mood board less the pink. To see more of this layout stop over here at my blog

This moodboard told me summer,beach and tropical beauty.

I was inspired by the colors of the mood board.

I was inspired by various elements of the mood board to create this project; the colors, the arrows, the buttons, and the butterflies.


I have created an art journal spread with VLVS Stamps!

Now it's your turn to give this challenge a try :)

#359 For the Moms

Hey everyone!

This week's challenge is celebrating Moms - your mom, your grandma, aunt, cousin, sister, step mom, so many different kinds of moms that we have!

Show us how you celebrate that special mom in your life!

The DT has some great projects to get you started!


I did a simple Mother's Day card for my mom using up some old 6x6 papers and a 
couple of stamps - the flower one was recently gifted to me from my aunt. 

I used the  Echo Park "I am Mom" collection to scrapbook these pics of me and my 3 kiddos from 2015...

I was inspired to scrap these "Us-ies" (Us + Selfies) of my children and me from Mother's Day 2017. I turned my photos into black & white because the bad
lighting made the colors in the photos look awful.
I used the Mama Llama collection from Simple Stories because I love llamas and I chose to use the brown PP from the collection because brown is my favorite color! Everything else is from Elle's Studio.

I have created a layout of my daughter and granddaughter on Mother's Day of this year.

Here's a fun fold card I made for my sweet Mother-In-Law for Mother's Day.

Here's the Mother's Day card I made for my mom.  
Note: the word "Mother's" was added after I took this photo.

Challenge #358: Weather

Hi, this week at Use Your Stuff, show us all kinds of weather!  There are all kinds of crazy things going on around the globe these days to feature, commiserate or what have you.
What does weather mean to you?  Show us in the linky below.

Meanwhile here are some DT ideas:

Imho (and I'm probably not alone here) sunshine is the best type of weather,  
and my hubby has a lovely hobby of shooting sunrises and sunsets...

My daughter's soccer season has been plagued with rain.  So I decided to feature a picture of her toting her soccer gear to the field in her new "soccer backpack" (AKA the garbage bag).

I don't have many weather related photos to scrap but I did take this photo of a "Fall" leaf that fell onto the snow on our deck.  It was a early season snowfall so I thought it was interesting that the leaves were still falling from our trees.
