He Likes To Pirate Dance

It’s reveal time over at Cocoa Daisy
The “Bed & Breakfast” kit is just gorgeous
I’ve made 2 layouts for reveal
and am looking forward to playing more with the kit
especially for all the amazing challenges that are going to be happening at the crop in a couple of weeks
The first page is using the kit


I used  the “circle & squares” stencil add on with the “Sunshine” Maya Road mist add on


and paper from the Candlewyck Inn paper add on


oh and my trusty dymo had a run with some pink tape


The second page I made


I distressed the Jillibean Soup alpha


used my circle punch on the Barley Pearls paper
and then stamped around each using the circle from the gorgeous Cocoa Daisy Dresden Quilt stamp


machine stitched my journal lines


Such a cool kit I am sure these won’t be around long
so if your interested make sure you head over to the Cocoa Daisy store
There are also some surprises happening
Including gorgeous Tote Bags with an exclusive design created by Julie Fei-Fan Balzer
The kits and bags will be available for purchase from November 1
In some home news:
Megan has had the opportunity to help write, direct, shoot and edit a film for the My State Film Festival competition with her school.
The school ended up entering 4 films and she’s excited that her film is now open for voting in the People’s Choice award.
You can view the film HERE and to vote you need to press one of the share buttons, in fact you can press all 300+ share buttons if you desired to do so (?!).
You don’t have to actually share it if you don’t want to, just press a share button, but I know she’d appreciate your vote (as would the other kids who took part in the film) and passing on the link so others can vote too.
She isn’t in the film because she was behind the camera for all of it. She loves LOVES LOVES this kind of thing
both the grade 6 teachers have told me how well she did with the job and how good she is at
I just love the way she has been enthusiastic about the whole process and how much she enjoys this creative outlet
I hope she gets to do something like this again in the future because it’s been a joy to watch

Pin It Now!


  1. It looks like Megan had fun making the video. I thought it was funny that he was scared but he stopped and took the time to eat a berry. Cute touch. Best wishes on the competition.

  2. love your layouts. that CW template is fabulous and how you used it, is great. =)
