two peas in a bucket gardeners digest {march}…


I don’t know if anyone enjoys these garden girl blog hops as much as we enjoy putting them together for you! I feel so blessed to be a part of the garden girl design team at Two Peas in a Bucket – and I am constantly inspired by the girls I get to work with every day! I love hopping along with all of you!

Speaking of the Garden Girls…did you know Two Peas recently launched a brand new blog (here’s the LINK)?  You should check it out, and become a “follower” so you won’t miss a thing! 


I wanted to share a recent project that went up in the garden – I haven’t blogged about it yet, so I thought today was the perfect day to share it!  It’s a two-page layout all about Meagan’s birthday last summer.  It just happened that her little brother, Zach, was released from the hospital to go home on her birthday (a great birthday gift).  So the photos look like a regular “birthday page”, but the journaling is a little more about how I was so proud of how she handled celebrating (or rather not celebrating much) because of everything else that was happening that day.  You can see more of the fun little details and read the journaling (if you want to) by clicking HERE to see the layout in my gallery at Two Peas.


{you can also see links to all of the fun new products I used on this layout – just click here!)


Have you seen the shopping section lately?  It is being filled with beautiful new product almost each and every day!  Here are just five (it was hard to choose only FIVE!!) fun new products that have recently made their way from my bucket to my home…look for them to be appearing on projects very soon!

…and this isn’t a “new” product, but it’s one of my favorite and it’s back in stock right now!  I love, love, love my Silhouette Cameo.  If you haven’t jumped on the bandwagon…now is a GREAT time to do it!



And finally, I have to brag on a scrapbooking friend who inspires me constantly!  Most of you probably already know Laura Vegas, but if you don’t, you definitely need to check out her work – she is crazy talented and one of the kindest, most genuine people I know.  Here are a few of the gorgeous projects she’s shared recently at Two Peas:
