happy 7 happened!

it was me and da hubz 7th year wedding anniversary this past 3.15.2016, tuesday...sometimes we drive each other coocoo, but...hey what couple doesn't?  hahaha.

and of course, every year, i do a layout...

lots of stuff used from my own stash... but also took advantage of the ali edwards "heart" story kit and stamp set.  i love that they both went so well with this.

i so love her story kits and stamp sets... so versatile, in that you can use them in so many ways and they are timeless...and then on top of that, one can definitely be able to travel with them.  i intend to bring them all on our travels this summer.

the "tough" story kit and stamp set is coming way!  can hardly to get them in the mail!  i love the fact that it's not always the goodie goodie you should think of scrapbooking, telling a story.  i can already think of stories and how i'm gonna use this one!

i have to say that my style has really changed over the years... and i think and most likely will stay with it for a LONG time. more simple, more white space.  i use to spend more than 2 hours doing a layout, because i would deck it out on the WHOLE i've learned that i don't need to spend so much time to make it my own.  i also put myself on a timer, 1 hour or less.  i have done one layout in 20 minutes! and it turned out to be one of my faves!  i like the challenge of doing a 15-20 minute or less layout.  it's enough to give me that "i scrapbooked today" satisfaction.  i'll be challenging myself this way from now on!  you should try it, it's kind of refreshing and exciting at the same time.

on another note... i am participating in AE's Day in the Life which is on March 29th! i got the kit and my fave is the roller date stamp! so in love.  12 more days!

and in may it will be Week in the Life and got the kit and the gray stories album.  woot!  so anxious for this one to start too.... and i really don't know what is my fave in this kit!  so many in it!

time to get a little munch on and get ready to sub a Zumba class for a friend tonight at The Alaska Club!  this is usually my night off...but couldn't resist my friend when she asked me to sub for her.  AAA-OO!  lata my playaz.... xoxo.
