I am so excited to announce my big new adventure! My friends (and fellow designers) and I have started Lucky Lark Designs. Through this, we will be offering scrapbooking classes and events on a local level as well as offering kits for sale online.
Our first class starts Thursday, September 9th. For more information, visit our blog at Lucky Lark Designs. It's a work in progress, but all the important information is there for now.
So if you are in the area, please feel free to join in! We are so excited about our new adventure!

For the first one, I hand drew all the elements, then cut them from double-dot cardstock. I love this paper because one side has subtle polka dots and the other is solid.
This next card was so much fun to make! I formatted the text in Word and printed it directly onto more double-dot cardstock.

Admire the moon.
Look on the bright side.
Listen to your heart.
Don’t fear love.
Remember, it’s never too late.
Don’t run...face your fears.
Be an optimist.
Open a new window.
Speak straight and true.
Life’s too short to be ordinary.
I attached the photo and papers to the canvases with spray adhesive. This was much less messy than trying to use Mod Podge. I hot glued the small 4x4 canvas with our family photo to the larger 10x10 canvas. This made the the bottom canvas a little top heavy and it kept tilting forward off of the plate holder. I remedied that little problem by simply tying the canvas to the plate holder with a piece of ribbon on the back.
This project was fun to make and it was so easy to use the coordinating product from Bo Bunny. Hope you enjoy it!

We borrowed Grandma's gardening wagon and tied some large dowels in each corner. I gathered two edges of some muslin I had lying around the house (see...I knew it would come in handy some day!) and stretched it over some kind of flexible noise makers scrounged from the boys' toy box. Voila! A covered wagon!
So, here's the funny part of the story. The kids were walking around the high school...that's it. Just around the high school. No big deal. Cam starts off at a brisk pace. He was excited!
Here he is back at the beginning 5 minutes later. He looks a little tired. Even the wagon looks tired and droopy. This is probably why we weren't born 150 years ago. We wouldn't make very good pioneers.
We'll just let big brother pull the wagon back to the car...
