california gurls (and guys).

For some reason, I have “California Gurls” stuck in my head. It’s not one of my favorite songs, but it’s catchy. Hence, I’ve got it on repeat in my head.

I may have heard it yesterday when we were out in the city celebrating one of San Francisco’s craziest and biggest celebrations, Pride Parade. It’s colorful and over-the-top, but more importantly, it’s major fun. Anyway, here are some fun pictures from this weekend’s event:

Even though it was hot, we had a great day (and got free tans). We also found close FREE parking. Wahoo!

As for recent work, I only have one layout to share today. The rest of my projects will be posted in the next couple of days. I’ve got some fun Pink Paislee layouts that I created for That Scrappy Girl.

Can you tell that I’ve been into circles recently?! I can’t seem to get enough circles, hehe. …and because I can’t share anymore layouts, here’s a sneak peek of one of the Pink Paislee layouts featuring cuts from the Pazzles machine:

Don’t forget to visit later on this week for more major inspiration this week. You are going to love it all; I promise! Oh, and a winner to the $60 CSN lighting giveaway will be announced tomorrow. Stay tuned!

Lastly, thank you to everyone who has been so supportive of me and my dreams – both personally and in this industry. πŸ™‚ You are all amazing, and I appreciate all of the sweet messages and phone calls. Also, I appreciate my family and friends that surround me with their love. Seriously, God is so good.

Now, I’m off to go swimming. Thank gosh for pools in warm weather! πŸ™‚

    Looks like you guys had a great time! I wish I could have made a trip back there to go to Pride with you guys, but instead I have to hang out here and work in San Diego. Can’t wait to see you guys in a couple days!

    I’m so sick of the So-Cal life…

  17. Oh, I’m so jealous, wish we could have met up with you there, maybe next year though, looks like you guys had a lot of fun, thanks for sharing the pics of the parade. I’m loving all the circles, they’re great.

  18. I think you need some round SRM Stickers to put in all those circles. I know who might have some… πŸ˜‰

    Looks like is was a fun day… can’t wait to see those photos scrapped!

  20. OMG BSB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    You take such great pictures, so vibrant and full of color!

  21. I feel the same way about that song! I guess it’s just a fun summer song. I like those. Cupcake mini-floats = awesome. Backstreet Boys as grand marshals = super duper awesome! Haha! I loved them back in the day. So cool to see pics of them! (But where’s Kevin?!?!) I love that layout. Those circles are so simple but they look so great! Okay, can you tell I’ve had half a cup of coffee. I’m rambling like crazy! Have a great day!
