Hooray for our Protectors!

Good morning!  Here are a couple of layouts that I made in honor of those brave men and women whom we sometimes take for granted, but are very glad that they're on the job 24/7!  Here's to you, wonderful heroes!
 
 

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  Have a wonderful and blessed Thursday!

Fall Layouts

Good morning! The temperatures are dropping and the days have been amazing lately.  We started taking the grandbabies for stroller rides again and they love it!  They were mesmerized looking at the leaves fall with the wind and Andrew told us that the trees were dancing!  Soooo cute!
 
 
Here are some Fall layouts I've made recently.  Love to work with these colors.
 


 
Have a fabulous and blessed day!

Love Always!

Good morning!  Here is a layout that I made recently for all of us who still believe in perpetual love!
 

And here is a picture of me with the man I walked down the aisle with nearly 37 years ago.  We were with our three grandchildren in St. Petersburg this past summer.
 
I don't write about him enough in this blog, but if anyone would have told me all those years ago that that I would still be as happy and in love as I am and that I would still miss him as much as I do when he's not with me, I would have said that they were crazy.
 
Here's to you "Mr. Bea"!

Family Memories

 Good morning! I love Mondays... maybe its because I feel its a new beginning and look forward to see what God has in store for me this week.

Here' s a layout I made recently using a ton of clocks in different textures, colors and sizes.  Black and white pictures will look amazing in this layout.
 
Have a wonderful and blessed day!

Happy Friday!

Good morning! Are you ready for the weekend! We took Andrew and Carolina to the local Pumpkin Patch yesterday afternoon and they had so much fun! Andrew wanted to take about ten pumpkins home with him!!!! It was pretty cute.

I am off to New Orleans for the weekend to teach at the Scrap-a-teers event. They will be making 10 layouts in two days!!! How fun is that...

Here are two layouts I made recently for one of my customers. 
 


Remember to follow us on Facebook. I will be posting the layouts all weekend. The link is Amazing Grace Paper Crafts

Have a fabulous, safe, fun and blessed weekend!

Shabby Chic

Good morning!  Here are three layouts that I made in the Shabby Chic style.  I really enjoyed working with the lace and the distressed papers and layering to make it look old, but elegant.
 


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

Bea Weekend at Treasured Memories

Good morning! As I told you yesterday, I will share some photos of last weekend at Treasured Memories. The first picture  is of me with Janet, the owner of TM. She is one of the sweetest, fun, creative  and most giving persons I have ever met.
 

Here is my son Danny who stopped by on Saturday.
 
Here are some of the ladies who had their picture taken with Danny.  (Lark, in the blue shirt, thought that Danny was "hot" but was disappointed that he was already spoken for.)

He brought souvenir gifts and door prizes for everyone.
 
Here he is signing some scrapbook pages ...
 

... which were made into a special layout.  This one has Danny and me with the staff of Treasured Memories.  It sold out quickly.
 

 Here are the five of us after it was over; Mr. Bea, me, Madison, Danny and Lexie.

I Love You to the Moon and Back!

Good morning!  Well, I'm back in Florida after a lovely weekend at Treasured Memories in Lafayette, Louisiana.  Pictures to follow latter this week.

Here is one of the layouts I made before I left.  I actually used my Silhouette for the title.  I'm going to start using it more.
 

Have a wonderful and blessed day!

Simply Lovely

Happy Friday!  Are you ready for the weekend?  I sure am!  I am actually at Treasured Memories in Lafayette, Louisiana today and tomorrow will be with 30 fabulous friends. Stay tuned to my FACEBOOK page for the new layouts/kits designed this weekend.

On this layout I used a Sizzix die to cut out the petals for the large daisies.  I love the bright colors all mixed together.
 

Have a fabulous, safe and blessed weekend!

Graduation

Happy Thursday!  Hope you are doing great and are enjoying the change of season.  You see pumpkins everywhere, fall festivals on weekends and the leaves changing already. Fall is soooo much fun!
 
Even though it's many months off, here's a layout related to graduation but not using the conventional colors black, red and white. I love how it turned out and hope you like it, too.

I Love Purple!

Good morning! Well, after seeing Carolina dressed in purple I think I love it now!!!! I took her outside for a minute and she was mesmerized with the grass. She touched it....
 
 
Touched it some more....
 

And of course, found the perfect leaf to eat!!!!

 
These pictures will look amazing in either one of these layouts. Once I print them out I will decide where they look best.  Maybe I'll use them both!



Thank you for stopping by! Have a wonderful and blessed day!

Visit to ESS

Good morning! As I mentioned yesterday, I spent last Saturday at Everything Scrapbook & Stamp in Lake worth, Florida.  After the class we got to crop until midnight.  I designed these layouts for the store and they were made into kits.  In case you would like to purchase any of them, please call them directly to place your order. Their phone number is (561) 432-5201.
 
 
 
 
 
These pictures never give justice to the details or the wonderful papers.  This is the new line from Graphic 45 called An Eerie Tale.  All of the mats and embellishments are popped.
 
 
We celebrated Donna's birthday with cookies and carrot cake.
 
 
Here are some of us at the end of the night.  Michelle, the owner of ESS, is finishing up a fabulous page for her mixed media journal.
 
 
A great time was had by all.  ESS has so many new and current items in stock that it's great fun to crop until we drop.
 
Have a wonderful and blessed day!

Say Cheese!

Good morning!  I hope that all of you had a great weekend.  I had a wonderful time in South Florida.  I spent Saturday at Everything Scrapbook & Stamps in Lake Worth and Sunday with my sister and niece in Ft. Lauderdale.  What a surprise it was to come home last night to temperatures below 60!

Most snapshots taken these days are digital taken with a cell phone.  Film and cameras have become a thing of the past, but they seem to be all over the place in the scrapbooking world.  This, of course, includes vintage cameras, film strips, movie reels, View-Master disks and so on.  Here is a layout that I made using some of those cameras.
 

Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope you enjoyed this layout.  Have a wonderful and blessed day!

Blues and greens

Good morning!  Here are a couple of layouts that feature lighter shades of blues and greens.  I think they go together quite nicely, don't you?
 


Thanks for visiting my blog today.  I hope these two layouts gave you some inspiration.  Have a wonderful and blessed day!

Happy October!

Good morning and happy October!  It's incredible how the weather has changed lately.  Its been beautiful around here. I started making Fall layouts already!  Here's one I made while my friend Peggy was visiting me.  She made hers related to friends.  Isn't that cool how you can just change some embellishments and a title and your layout could be anything you want it to be?
 
 


Hope you enjoyed this idea! Have a wonderful and blessed day!

Star Wars

Good morning!  Star Wars is a movie that really has some staying power.  The first one came out in 1977 (my husband and I actually went to see it on our honeymoon) and he tells me that there's a new one with most of the original cast coming out next year!

Here's a layout I made for a special request.  All of these characters are from the first movie. 


Madison & I went for a walk this past summer and look who we ran into in the park, Darth Vader and an Imperial Storm Trooper!

And here's my son's best friend, Buddy, at a baseball game with Yoda and Chewbacca.  (Buddy's the one with the baseball cap.)

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

A Day at the Park

Good morning!  Hope you all had a great weekend.  I actually made two excursions out of the house this weekend with my husband.  He took me to Hobby Lobby, to Michaels and to Jo-Ann's.  (Where
else would I want to go?)
 
Here are two layouts that I made recently with the same title.  I didn't realize it until I laid them side-by-side, but they almost look like photo negatives of each other!  (My favorite is actually the darker one.)  The little girl is from Unity Stamp Co.

Celebrate!

Happy Friday!  Are you ready for the weekend?  The title for this layout is "Time to Celebrate".  I found these gorgeous papers at Jo-Ann's.  They are actually a very heavy paper.  And you know me.  I love everything "chalkboard".
 
 
Have a wonderful and blessed weekend.  And don't forget to visit my Facebook page for some original layouts over the weekend.

Doggies!!!

Good morning!  Before I had grandchildren I had a "grand-doggie".  His name is Moses and he has his own scrapbook.  Sometimes we forget just how important our pets are to us.
 
Here are a couple of layouts that I made for dog lovers who want to scrap their "best friend".  I hope that you enjoy them.
