Crate Paper Open Road Layouts

Happy Thursday All! As the school year is winding down, all I can think about is summer. And with summer, comes vacations and road trips! The new Crate Collection, The Open Road, is positively perfect for documenting all of your summer travels! I've created two layouts documenting my recent trip to San Francisco, and you can check out more details on the Crate blog!

Gossamer Blue May Layouts

Happy May!!! Maybe May means that the Never Ending Winter will finally end! It's been yucky and cold here in the Mitten, and frankly, I'm ready for some real Spring! One thing that did brighten things up around here this month were the Gossamer Blue May kits--super colorful and fun! Here's what I made:
