The On My Desk collection from Gossamer Blue has been begging me to make a layout with it. I really wanted to use some of the bright pinks and girly designs that come with this collection, so I set out to find a photo I could use.
I found this Instagram photo I took just a few weeks ago of Chloe and a friend of hers on a mother/daughter beach excursion. We had stopped at Sweet Frog for lunch. I probably normally wouldn’t do Sweet Frog for lunch, knowing how many candies and sweets my daughter enjoys piling on top of her yogurt. Not exactly a healthy lunch option. Especially knowing from experience how much harder it is to maintain a healthy, balanced diet while on vacation. But being on vacation calls for a little loosening of the rules, right? A little Sweet Frog for lunch is probably OK just this once. It made a great memory and I was happy to catch this shot of my daughter and her little friend enjoying their sweet treat. They are so cute!
I purchased the flower cut file from Kim Stewart a little while ago and was waiting for a chance to use it. These cut files are just so gorgeous! I adhered them loosely so they would lift off the page in some spots, creating some dimension.
I pulled a little of this and that together to make the “happy memories now in progress” subtitle. All of these pieces are found in the On my Desk collection. There are puffy stickers, die cuts, wood veneer pieces, etc. The gold letter stickers are left over from the September Gossamer Blue kits.
I backed parts of the cut out designs with some of the pretty papers in the collection. I seriously love each and every piece of patterned paper in the On My Desk collection. There are so many fun girly designs, like the gems, flowers and hearts. But there are plenty of neutral and masculine designs as well. Like the blue polka dots, the stars, and more. I feel like it’s a very well rounded collection with something for everyone.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Drop me a line and let me know what you think of this collection, any questions you have, or just say hello. I love hearing from my readers!
