Where the Sun Shines
Although we appreciate the weather all year round here in Southern California, I truly enjoy Summer since the kids are off school and we have more family time. 
I love all the vibrant and bright colors in "Hello Summer" Collection. Working with this collection got me really excited like a kid in a candy store. I truly didn't know where to start. I had so many ideas running in my head. 
Summer has the happiest and most cheerful colors and it makes me want to scream for ice cream. I fussy cut the flamingo from one of the papers from the 6x8 paper pad. To create my dashboard, I used the "Life is Good" double sided paper from the 6x8 paper pad for the background. I then just added a couple of chipboard pieces. I used the "Catching Rays" paper to make some fun hole reinforcers.
 Who doesn't love to decorate their planner pockets? Whenever I look at this side of my planner, it set up the mood for the theme of my current set up. This scream "I Love Summer" 
I also fussy cut the flamingo from the 3x4 journaling cards. 
  I couldn't help but create another dashboard that I can also use as a divider. My daughter's dress in this picture was just too perfect for this collection. I plan on making more dividers for my summer set up.
Isn't my daughter just adorable with her sunglasses?
 I love all the layering I created on this page. I made a couple of tags with eyelets so I can add the twines. I frayed the border of the picture to add texture. I also inked the edges to give it a finished look.
July Monthly Layout. As I mentioned in my previous blog, I love and enjoy creating monthly layouts. 
 I used the smaller numbers from the number sticker tablets for my monthly layout. Since I am using the Personal size planner, I also try to use smaller size stickers. Large stickers may overpower the page and may take away the focus of the whole layout.
 I also started setting up my Traveler's Notebook. I created a simple but super cute cover for my insert. I used the "Who's ready for Summer" paper. The design of this paper is gorgeous enough by itself without having to do any more decorating. It was very fast and easy. 
I hope you enjoy viewing my bright and cheerful planner set up. I can't wait to document my family's fun adventures this summer. I do have all year long to add more memories in my journal since we have an Endless Summer here in Southern California.


Have you ever been bitten by the travel bug? Well, our family has been itching to travel the world and we cannot wait to see where our next adventures will take us next. We recently just came back from Tokyo Japan during Spring Break and we're already talking about our next travel plans.
Setting up my planner with the Travel Notes Collection definitely got me even more excited planning our next family trip.
I had so many ideas running in my head for my travel dashboard. This collection has so many fun elements that I couldn't decide what to use first. I finally decided to fussy cut the plane and the clouds from the 3x4 journaling cards. I used foam adhesive for the plane to give it that 3d effect. I then layered the word "explore" on the bottom of the page.
 Decorating and stuffing my planner pockets is a must even though it's mostly for decorative purpose. It's more fun and it always makes me super happy when I first open my planner. Do you decorate your planner pockets or is it more for functional use? 
I cannot tell you how excited I was while creating my monthly layout. I was literally jumping up and down with a huge smile on my face. All I can think about is planning our Summer Vacation and our Bahamas trip for December. 

I work 3 12 hours night shifts. My schedule allows me to have 5 days off in a row. So, when I have those 5 days off and the boys have no school, we love to go on a mini vacay. Mini vacays are the best, since you can have many of those during the course of a year.
 Life is too short. Live your life to the fullest and travel to explore what else is out there.
So what are you waiting for? Plan your next trip and document your travel and adventures using the Travel Notes Collection. Summer Vacation here we come!


Mother's Day is just around the corner. What can be more perfect than to use the Mama Llama collection for my planner set up?
Sometimes the best way to thank our moms is with a simple and heartfelt message.
"Out of all the Mamas in the world...I'm so glad you're mine" the perfect quote to use to put my gratitude into words.
 How can I not use the Llamas in my dashboard. They are super adorable, don't you agree?
 I fussy cut the Mama Llama, baby Llama and the cactus from the 4x6 journaling cards elements. I inked the edges of the llamas blue to have them stand out more. I then added small flowers for the finishing touch. Its simple but beautiful at the same time.
 The small pearls that surround the quote makes it more elegant. I added some embellishments from my stash to achieve the look I wanted. I really love how it turned out.
No bits & pieces in this collection to use to stuff your planner pockets? No prob-llama. I used the 3x4 journaling card elements to decorate my planner pockets. I fussy cut 2 more Llamas to turn them into die cuts. 
I used mainly the stickers that came with the Mama Llama collection for my Monthly layout. The stickers are simple yet fun way to decorate your layout. 
 I also love using the new numbers sticker tablet. I decided to use the peach color to match the stickers well.
 The pastel colors in this collection gives my layout more of the soft image. 

I hope you enjoyed viewing my planner set up. Happy Mother's Day to My Mom and to all the Moms out there. Thank you for all that you do.
