Lost and Found 2

My Mind’s Eye Lost and Found 2 Sunshine | Monday Card Madness #81

I think today’s steal, the My Mind’s Eye Lost and Found 2 Sunshine Collection is just what we need to warm up a chilly spring. The soothing golden and yellow tones with a sprinkling of sage are sure to be the perfect match for many paper crafting projects. Another love about this collection is the music papers. Given that I live with two band geeks those papers have already been reserved for use! Whether it’s for scrapbooking their performance photos or for their practice needs is yet to be determined.

What has been determined is that the Sunshine collection was a delight to create cards with!

The sparkly embellishments in this collection were the inspiration for my card creations along with my current love of banners. The prints on the papers of this collection are such that just a little addition of embellishments make for perfect cards.

One more favorite about My Mind’s Eye? It smells the best. Scrapbook nerd alert. I know. :)

My Mind’s Eye Lost and Found 2 | Mid Week Mojo

Amethyst – Layout 9

As I was sifting through the mountain of gorgeous papers and embellishments which are part of today’s steal, the My Mind’s Eye Lost and Found 2 Collection, I was really drawn to the embellishment in the Rosy collection that says “This is the Good Life.” After a somewhat stressful “vacation” this past weekend with the family, I pretty much decided that it would be many years before another family trip should transpire.

But then I got thinking about it a little more. It had been years since we were a complete family on a trip. Even though the weather didn’t cooperate, we still managed to more or less have fun. We traveled safe. We stuck to budget. We created some memories which happy ones will hopefully out weigh the stressful ones.  In short we have a great family and we have a good life.

That being said I thought it was only fitting to scrap some of the photos from our recent journey to Zion’s National Park, and the muted tones of today’s steal, really work great with the focus on nature.

I’m always a sucker for the My Mind’s Eye embellishments. They can completely turn around a pretty normal page into something with complete pizazz!

And I absolutely love the 4×6 photo overlays. What a simple addition to really add a ton to a layout, without overwhelming it.

Thank you My Mind’s Eye, once again for providing a collection that is perfection!
