Time After Time by Dana’s Footprint Designs.

Right now, it is on sale with the Mixology at GoDigitalScrapbooking.com.

This reminded me of simpler times growing up and I went back to some family photos and chose one of my sister & I in 1986.

Who else is a planner?

I once was super organized & now I try. That’s the only way I can describe it….. I try!

I am very encouraged & motivated when I go to Planner night at our local Michael’s or hang with the Planner gals. But that doesn’t always transfer back to my planner.


However, I do tend to back fill my planner, which works great for many cases…. such as…. memory books, business planning & motivation to try to use it daily.

Close to My Heart has released this years version of 2017 planners & I had to grab them. They are available while supplies last & can be purchased in a bundle that includes a new album.
The Planner pages are available 3 ways….
1) bundled together with the Everyday Life Album—Stripes (CC1178, $31.90 USD/$40.75 CAD);
2) bundled together with the Everyday Life™ Album—Seaglass (CC1177, $31.90 USD/$40.75 CAD);
or 3) buy only the planner pages themselves (CC2017, $16.95 USD/$21.75 CAD).

I love that the monthly cover sheet is now color-able & each month is a new theme.

This is such a popular area of crafting right now, I’m excited it’s in our planners.

Check out this video for an up close look at what’s included in the Planner pages.


If this planner is your style grab them while you can at
