World's Best Dad - Wild Whisper Design Team

Hello! Welcome back! It's been a very long since my last blog post but I'm back with a project I created for Wild Whisper Designs. This months new release is called Small Patterns and it's a fabulous collection of double-sided pattern paper. 

Here is sneak peek of my project -

A New Month & A New Adventure

Hello! It's been a really long time since I posted anything to this blog but I have a really good reason.
A little over 8 months ago my husband lost his job. At first it was a really upsetting time - we went through all the emotions but once we caught our breath and could think clearly we decided what to do next. A dream I have had for a while was to open my own scrapbook/paper craft store but it was never the right time until now. 

The dream started to take shape the more we talked about it. The more we talked about it the more we realized that we could actually do it. 

Fast forward to June 1, 2018 - the day we took possession of our new retail space!

Behind the scenes my husband, Glenn & my dad have been building display fixtures and my demo bar and front counter.

Follow us on the road to opening by keeping an eye on The Paper & Ink Boutique social media.

You may be thinking "What does this mean for Paradise Lost?"
Paradise Lost will be taken over by Heather - my very good friend and co-host of Paradise Lost Crops & Retreats. She is new to blogging so hopefully, with a bit of guidance and encouragement from me, she will keep the blog going with her beautiful scrapbooking and cardmaking.

Stay tuned as I'm not quite finished with Paradise Lost yet!
I'll be back on Wednesday, June 6 with a project for the Wild Whisper Design Team.

Welcome back! 
We are getting to the end of April and that means there is just a few  more days of Fur Babies inspiration to come. *insert sad face here* I know I have really enjoyed creating with this wonderful collection and seeing all the fantastic inspiration from the rest of the DT. 

The good news is another lovely collection is going to be unveiled next week! EEEEk! 

For my final Fur Babies project I have another 12x12 layout featuring my parents dog, Winston.
He is pretty adorable, crooked teeth and all.

Here is a sneak peek.
