Crafting Ireland Magazine, Issue 18!

I am a cover girl again! :)
My "This is Heaven" layout is on the cover. And I have a small "how I put it together" tutorial on page nine of the magazine. You can read the magazine for free HERE. :)
I used the Maggie Holmes line by Crate Paper for most of the layout. I also included flair button by Scrapfellow and chipboard letters by American Crafts.

Journaling - Could there be anything more perfect than laying on a lounge chair on a beach in Mexico. Watching my family at the edge of the water. Listening to the sound of the ocean. Then laying back with a book to relax. It was a pretty quiet beach at the first resort we stayed in this Spring in Hualtuco, Mexico. You can see the second resort we stayed in for the rest of the trip over on the right in this photo perched above the bay. This was my first time seeing the Pacific ocean in person. So peaceful and beautiful.

This was the first time in awhile that a layout came together exactly as I pictured it in my head design wise. :)

Also, just a quick note that you still have time to enter my giveaway over at Craft Your Nest. I will be picking the winner tomorrow. You can see all the details HERE!

See you tomorrow for a super quick post! :)
