Artful Marks Fathers

Father's Day is just around the corner and so this week's new release is a kit that is perfect for this time of celebration!

A Father is neither an anchor to hold us back, nor a sail to take us there, but a guiding light whose love shows us the way.  This kit focuses on men and science in a Man’s World theme (see my other Man’s World kits).  Highlighting the masculine drive and fathers of mankind in blue, green and tan this kit is great for Father’s Day or for other powerful male pages.

You can find this collection in my shop and at 20% off.  Purchase the Bundle and save 40% off!

Open for Goodness

Ah, June.  I'm working with my office window open.  For now.  Until the summer heat gets too much and I have to run the AC.  I love this time of year.  Sunny and 75-80 degrees is my kind of weather.  It's good for my soul.

Speaking of good...this week's new release is another installment of the Faithbooking series.  This set focuses on Goodness.  I am getting used to a different work schedule since the girls have been out of school.  Getting a complete collection done proved problematic this week.  I hope things become easier in the weeks to come as I balance work and family time.  Fortunately my girls still want to hang with me even tho they are teenagers!!

My Favorite & My Best {Teenage Driver}!!!

I have a teenage driver in my house now.  A couple weeks ago when she went to take her permit test I was so nervous that she wasn't going to pass.  When she came thru the door and I asked her how it went THEN I was nervous that she DID PASS!!!  Yikes!!!  Life is so very interesting as you go thru the fazes of it with your children.

As we were reminiscing about it, memories of the Barbie Jeep that the girls had when they were little surfaced.  It was only fitting that I do a layout about it (see below). My new templates My Favorite & My Best {Story} 9 that are in my shop this week were just perfect for this!


Here's the layout I did with one of these templates.  Here's the girls in the Barbie Jeep in 2008 and then now while Ava is learning to drive in 2016.  Looks like Ava is still in the driver's seat!


Here are some more inspirations for you from my Creative Team...


I also have another new release in my shop...another installment of Urban Grunge.

Throw Kindness Around Like Confetti

"Throw Kindness Around Like Confetti"  What a great visual that is!  And wouldn't the world be such a better place if we all did that?  That's just one of the word art sentiments in this week's new release.  My new release another installment in the Faithbooking series.  This is the May prompt, Kindness from the scriptures that focus on the Fruit of the Spirit in Galatians 5.  This kit has great shades of green, orange and purple and is great for your faith journaling...or even those of you who don't, there's enough in here for you who are not of the faith persuasion.
