To Do Lists

Are you a list-maker?  I do, but my lists end up all over post-it notes all over my desk. I decided to start a new planner (why yes, that's three!).  This planner is just to keep track of things that need to get done.  Here's my first pages:


Love the Butterfly Dreams paper from Elizabeth Craft Designs.  I thought it was perfect paired with the Garden Flowers and Make a Wish image stamps!  Here's a close-up of one of the pages:


It was loosely inspired by a Crazy 4 Challenges sketch:


Loose - right?  The boxes are there!  :)  And here's a close-up of the other page:


All of the supplies I used are linked up below...except for the Copic markers :)

All About Summer

Today's post over on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog is ALL about Summer!  I decided to scrapbook some pictures from a summer vacation to Disneyland using the Planner Essentials line.  Here are the pages:

The "sun" is made with a Dare 2B Artzy Stencil and some Tim Holtz distress inks in Mustard Seed, Squeezed Lemonade and Dried Marigold.  The stars and "together" are stamped in Tea Dye.  And the rest is brown ink.  The washi tape was a gift from one of my bosses.  And here is the insert: 

 I just squiggled some lines on with a multi-liner pen.  The right side is my ticket to Disneyland!  And here's what it looks like in my beautiful book:


My supplies are below.  Thanks for stopping by!
