My Favorite Things...todays share!

I'm currently teaching the song "My Favorite Things" to my student Abby to play at all her family occasions and I am humming it all round my house at the moment. It got me to thinking about how my favorite things change from time to time, and sometimes, I don't even own what I currently consider my favorite things...they are just ideas or photos that inspire I thought maybe I'd start up a regular post about my favorite things...the things that make me smile today...and no, it will not ALWAYS be photos of Ushi or Jeff, lol!

Today, to start off, I'd like to share these photos from Etsy that I'm in love with...I want one of these little fawns in vintage green with pink accents and I want to place her on my vanity in my bedroom to delight me and inspire me and just plain make me smile daily...just don't know which one is my favorite...which to buy? What do you think?

Leave me a comment and let me know what you are loving at the moment! I'd love to hear!
Have a lovely Saturday evening!

Some Eye Candy...

just had to share these with y'all...I'm in love with these layouts by some of the most talented ladies I have ever had the privilege of working with! Here are some of the things they did using my brand new (he)ART art journaling papers brand new today at CatScrap.

New Papers: Heart Art

There are some fabulous new papers in the Fiddlette Designs store today.

Do you know they were originally created on Christine's dining room table when some friends came to visit her for an arts and crafts afternoon?  Just looking at those yummy colours I can almost hear the girly conversation and laughter!  I would have liked to have been a fly on that wall!

I hope you like them and happy creating everyone.
