Good morning!  Here are a couple of layouts that I made about fishing.  Both were kits that I had for sale that turned out to be very popular.  On the top layout I glued bits of broken shells along the "beach".


Well, thanks for visiting my blog today.  Have a wonderful and blessed weekend.

This is My Life

Good morning!  Hope your week is going great so far.  In case you are wondering about my health, it's been three weeks already since my last back surgery.  I am feeling much better and stronger today, praise The Lord.  It's been a hard and long road but I know at the end it will all be good again! James 1:2-3 says:  "Consider it pure joy brothers and sisters, when you face trials of many kinds because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance".

Today's layout is another one of my kits that I made recently and it's all about me, myself and I. Selfies will look great on it, don't you think?

Have a wonderful, fun and blessed Thursday!

Good morning!  Here is a layout I made last month titles simply "Princess".  I was inspired by the 3D sticker that eventually ended up in the lower left hand corner showing a number of (but not all of) the Disney princesses throughout the years.  After all, who does not have at least one special princess in their life?
I actually made this into a kit and it sold out very quickly.  I guess many people do have a special princess in their life!

Thanks for visiting my blog today.  I hope that you got some inspiration here.  Have a wonderful and blessed Wednesday.

Family Memories

Good morning!  Here are a couple of colorful layouts that I made last month whose theme is family memories.  These are two of my favorite words; "family" and "memories".  Everything else is just details.

Thanks for visiting my blog today.  I hope that you found some inspiration here.  Have a wonderful and blessed day!

Gray Layouts

Good morning!  I don't usually work with grays, but one day I decided to try some.  Here are three layouts that I made with gray.  I really like how it makes the other colors come alive.  I may start working with grays more often!

Thanks for visiting my blog today.  Have a wonderful and blessed day!

Good morning! Giggle has to be one of my favorite words in the English language and it might be because I am always around babies! There's nothing like the sound of a baby's laugh. No matter what your mood is you will always smile at this sound!

This layout is still available as a kit if you are interested.

Thanks for seeing my blog today.  Have a wonderful, blessed and safe weekend!

Country Living

Good morning!  Here's a layout that I made recently titled Country Living.  I used papers and embellishments from Kaisercraft, Calico Studios and others.  This was actually a kit offered last month and it was s quick seller.

Thanks for visiting my blog today.  Have a wonderful and blessed day!

Good morning!  Hope your week is going great so far.  Here's a layout I made focusing on the lighthouses. I absolutely love old lighthouses and try to visit them during my travels if there are any in the area.
I used a bunch of papers and embellishments to put it together such as Kaisercraft, K & Company,  Soft Spoken,  Jolee's, some netting, some shells, and so on. 
This scripture came to my heart as I designed  it with the lighthouses:  
Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world.
Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
John 8:12
Have a wonderful, fun and blessed day!

Authentique Papers

Good morning!  Here are couple of layouts that I made using Authentique's Classique:Pretty collection of papers.  I added a Julie Nutting doll to each of them to make them even more "classique".

Have a wonderful and blessed day.

Summer 2014

Good morning and happy Monday!  Hope you had a lovely weekend.  It rained almost non-stop here in Gainesville.  I guess the flowers were very happy and so was I, laying in bed listening to it on the roof.

Here are four layouts I've made recently related to summer.  I hope they inspire you to print all the pictures you've taken lately and actually scrap them.   I just loaded a program on my iPad and iPhone that I can upload all the pictures I take almost immediately and I get 100 free prints every month.  You can't beat that deal!  Now there are no more excuses to not having time to print your photos, right?  And the good thing is that you can pick them up locally within hours at Walgreens or they can mail them to your house.
Get inspired and get going!

Have a wonderful and blessed day.

Back to School

Good morning!  By now, everyone is back in school.  Here are a couple of layouts I made last month.  the first one in in a vintage style with a lot of browns.

This second one is much more lively and colorful.

Both were made into kits and I actually have a few of the second one left for sale.

Have a wonderful and blessed day and weekend as well.

Cowboy and Cowgirl

Good morning and howdy, y'all!  Here are a couple of layouts that I was inspired to make after seeing photos of my granddaughter riding the ponies at her favorite attraction.
There's plenty to do at this farm east of Seattle, but she just likes to ride her two favorite ponies.
This first one is for the cowboys.  The colors and patterns are very masculine.

And on this one I threw in a little pink for the cowgirls in your life.

Both of these were made into kits and I still have a few left if you're interested.

Have a wonderful and blessed day!

Baby Boy and Baby Girl

Good morning!  Here are a couple of layouts that I made using Carta Bella's baby mine collection.  As you can see, they have pink papers and stickers for the baby girls and blue papers and stickers for the baby boys.  I actually made these into kits and still have several of each available.

Have a wonderful and blessed Wednesday!

Good morning!  Well, today is exactly one week since my back surgery and I'm feeling much better.  I'm still in bed most of the time, but do get up from time to time for short periods.  I can't wait to get be to where I can do "marathon scrapping".

"Selfies" seem to be all the rage these days.  That's why I love the title of this layout I recently made.  I love the color combination as well.  There seems to be a little bit of everything, but it goes together well. The frames for the photos are wood and chalkboard background. I found them at Michael's.

Have a wonderful and blessed day!

Good morning!  Well, we made it through another week.  Today marks the start of Labor Day Weekend, the official end of Summer.  Many folks will be out enjoying one last cookout and that is the theme of these three layouts. 


As for me, I'll be celebrating Labor Day from the comfort of my bed.  I'm hoping to be released from the hospital today now that all of my tubes and connections have been removed.  My doctor told me yesterday that he's going out of town for the weekend and does not like to release anyone when he's not around.  Uh-oh!  I hope that doesn't mean that I'll be stuck here until Tuesday!  HELLLLLPPP!!!

Thanks for visiting the blog today.  Have a wonder, blessed and safe weekend!

Good morning! I bet you do not see layouts with this title very often. I am sorry the colors did not turn out good at all. The flowers are in different shades of pink.

Carolina just turned seven months old and started eating solids. Her first food besides her mom's milk was sweet potatoes. She loved them!

Thank you for visiting! Have a fun, fabulous and blessed day!

Good morning!  Well, my surgery went fairly well even though they weren't able to get everything accomplished that they hoped to.  Hopefully I will get to go home in a few short days.  Thank you all who have called and written.   It means the world to me!

Here are a couple of layouts I made recently inspired by my granddaughter Madison Rose who has been taking ballet classes. She loves it, especially when she gets to raise her arms above her head. Soooo cute!

Have a wonderful and blessed day!

Beach Time!

Good morning and happy Tuesday! Well, today is a big day for me as I am having another back surgery, probably as you are reading this post.  Please pray for me that it all be well.

Back to scrapbooking... I designed these layouts for Treasured Memories the last time I was there.  They're both about Summer and time at the beach.

 Here's my children their spouses and babies enjoying their summer time at the beach.

I can't believe these warm days are almost over!  Thank you for stopping by today.  Have a fabulous and blessed day!

Baseball is in the Air....

Good morning!  For those of you who follow baseball, you know that the 2014 season is in the final stretch.  I hope that your favorite team is doing well and is headed for the playoffs! This is one of my latest kits this week...
Here's a baseball layout I made and it actually has pictures in it!!!.  I bet you can figure that my favorite team is the Seattle Mariners......

Here's a picture of my son congratulating the catcher after a win.
And here he is with my daughter-in-law and grand-daughter Madison Rose before the game.
This is my friend  Barb, a fellow scrapper and a huge Kansas City Royals fan.  Barb sent me the coolest stickers ever; Mariners stickers from Jolee's.
And here is another dear friend and fellow scrapper Katy from Yakima, Washington and her husband Tim.  They drove all the way to Seattle to watch a game.  I happened to be there that week celebrating my birthday.  (I'm the short one displaying the Mariners cookies that Katy brought.) 

George, Valerie and their babies are also big supporters.  They've even travelled to stadiums outside of Florida to watch Danny play.
Nothing like family and friends, right?  Hug them, tell them you love them and take lots and lots of pictures of them. Have a wonderful and blessed Monday!

Our Special Day

Good morning and happy Friday! Another week that just went by sooo fast!  In a way I am happy because I have been having back pain for a several weeks now and to my regret, I have to have another back surgery this coming Tuesday. At this point, I just want to be released from this pain and to be strong again for my family, especially my grandchildren.
I will still be blogging and posting my layouts, as well as I am able.  (Did I tell you my husband helps me with this blog among other things in my studio?  Yes, he is a keeper!)
I had so much fun making this layout with the title "Our Special Day". I used the metal bird which I think looks amazing on top of the layered cards on the upper left corner.  I hope you like it, too.
Have a wonderful and blessed weekend!

Black and Red

Good morning! I hope you like this color combo because today's post is all about it! I think black and white pictures look amazing in all of them.  You can either use old photos that you have or print your newer color ones to black and white.

As always, I hope they all inspire you to try new things and new colors/embellishments together. Have a beautiful, fun and blessed day!
