Has it really been a whole month since I've posted??  So much has been going on - lots of layouts to share over the next few posts & some exciting personal news to share!!  We (meaning my husband & his good friend, along with his wife) are opening a brewery!! My husband has left his job of the past 13 years and is venturing out, along with the rest of us to open a craft beer brewery.  Of course at this point, with my kiddos in tow, my role is limited but in the future, as Nicholas enters preschool I am excited to help out in any way I can :)  We have just brought on a head brewer with lots of experience & we are excited to see what recipes we can come up with together.  If you'd like, feel free to like our facebook page HERE & follow our journey!! SO many new adventures on the horizon in the coming months :)  I'll keep you all posted, but in the meantime I have two new layouts to share :)  The first is a layout using the Fancy Pants Designs Down By The Shore collection.  I love the bright, bold color scheme in this line.  Perfect for summer!!!

I grabbed this circle background file from the Silhouette store HERE.  I have the older Silhouette, so I can't cut a full 12 x 12 page.  Instead I cut two smaller sections of circles, and overlapped them underneath the photo - you can barely tell :)  Within the circles I added smaller punched circles, stickers, and punched wave borders.

For my title, I used a combination of Fancy Pants Designs stickers and a Silhouette file (you can find it HERE).

My second layout features the Fancy Pants Designs Trendsetter collection.  I love this photo of Ryan & Nicholas.  There two love each other so much :)
