Boho Blossoms scrapbook page and a blog challenge question!

The Boho Blossoms set from My Favorite Things is definitely one of my favorite things :) Such a versatile set - and perfect for my girlie pages with photos of Nattie! All the stamps on this page are from that set: the little ones were used on the background paper and borders and of course those awesome big flowers pop right off the page!

I was busy today, working on some DT cards for the latest release of stamps from MFT. There will be 3 new sets introduced November 1st, so be sure and stop by here on Oct. 29th for the beginning of 3 days of sneak peeks!
It was a beautiful day here in Conifer; chilly in the morning, and bright and sunny in the afternoon. Tonight I took Nattie to her piano lesson - which is a nice half-hour of quiet for me while she's in working with her teacher. I usually take a magazine along and make the most of the peace and quiet :)
One of the blog questions from 2 peas this week was: "What were you doing 10 years ago around this time? What were you doing 5 years ago around this time? What are you doing right now? What do you think you will be doing in the future?" - what a great question! Let's see - 10 years ago we had just moved from Boston to northern CA with Nattie (1 year old!). We were living in an apartment, saving hard to buy our first home in the U.S. Five years ago we had just moved (again!) to Murrieta, CA - Jamie was just a few months old and Nattie was starting elementary school. We were again living in an apartment, waiting for our house to be completed!
Right now we're here in Conifer, CO and have been here for exactly 1 year! We LOVE it up here and I don't see us moving in the near future (we've had enough of that for a loooong time!). As for the future, who knows? The only things I truly hope for are the health and happiness of my family and friends...the rest will fall into place and work itself out :)

Great post. I love the blossoms, I'd never seen them before and you did such a good job using those on your page. I'll have to pick some up!

Love the layout! Can't wait to see the sneaks on the 29th!

I just moved from Cali 3 weeks ago to Ohio. Ohio is fine and we're closer to family but I miss Cali.
