Travel

Good morning!  Last week in my travels from Florida to Louisiana and back, I couldn't believe the number of families on I-10 on a good old fashioned driving vacations.  I shouldn't really be surprised.  After all, half of the fun is getting there!

Here are a couple of layouts that would be great for your vacation photos.

Happy Monday

Good morning and happy Monday!  Well, the Treasured Memories event is over and what a great time we all had!  Here's The Hive all dressed up in our 50's attire at the local malt shop.  Don't we look spectacular?



With Summer in full swing, I've been inspired to make some vacation layouts.  These three here have an ocean theme; for either spending your vacation on it or next to it.

Steampunk

Good morning!  Yesterday was the first day of Treasured Memories' Rayne Event Mega Crop!  We cropped all day until midnight.  This morning at 9:00 we're going to do it all over again!

This is a layout that I made by request.  At the time I had no idea what "steampunk" was and I'm still not completely sure.  The best I can describe is that it's a combination of vintage and future.

Coffee Lovers

Good morning!  One of the things I miss the most when I'm away from home is the morning cup of coffee that my DH brings me while I'm drying my hair.  He knows just how I like it!

This layout is for all of you coffee lovers out there! 


 
I hope that you feel inspired!  Thanks for visiting my blog today.  Have a wonderful and blessed day!

Frozen

Good morning!  Well, we made it to Louisiana and we're having a great time.  Last night we went out for Cajun food at a very popular local restaurant.  The food was absolutely delicious (although a bit spicy for me).

I've gotten many requests to make layouts with the theme from this very popular movie.  Here is one of several that I have made.



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

Sugar and Spice....

Good morning!  I am on my way to Louisiana to participate in the Treasured Memories annual Rayne Event.  I am excited beyond words!

Here are a couple of girly-girl feminine layouts that I made recently with lots of pink, flowers and butterflies.  It's absolutely perfect for that special young girl in your life.
  


And here is Carolina, one of the very special girls in my life.  Here she's sitting on the bathroom counter while watching her mommy put on makeup in the morning.

Elegant Layouts

Good morning and happy Friday! Here are a couple of layouts with an "elegant" flair.  In the first one the dolls are dressed up in their finest clothes. The girl doll is from Prima and the boy doll is from C- Thru the Woods.
 

I made this layout for a dear friend and I actually had a lot of  much fun using her stash! 
 

My husband and I are taking baby Andrew for his first canoe ride in the river and springs. Can't wait!Have a wonderful, fun and safe weekend!

Blah blah blah

Good morning!  I have a dear friend who LOVES to say "blah blah blah" when you ask how her health is.  This is so cute and so "her" that I was inspired to make a few layouts with this title! The dolls in the first layout are stamped with Julie Nutting's stamps. The dolls in the second one are free-handed using great papers.

Legacy

Good morning! Here's a couple of layouts filled with goodies such as chipboard pieces from Blue Fern Studios, Kaisercraft and Fabscraps.  
 


Madison is feeling much better since her daddy arrived home yesterday!


My talented DIL (Madison's mommy) made these decorations for a double baby shower they were celebrating last night.  I thought you'd enjoying seeing them.

Happy Monday!

Good morning!  Hope you had a fabulous long weekend.  After all of our guests left I decided to scrap with patriotic colors.  Here are three layouts that I made.  I hope you like them.
 

 
 
And here are two of my patriotic grandchildren, Andrew and  Carolina.


My other granddaughter Madison spent the 4th in the hospital with pneumonia! My poor baby.....


And here is my sister from South Florida making us tequeños, a Venezuelan style cheese stick which is white-cheese wrapped in dough and then fried.  Very tasty!


 As you can see, lots  of great pictures to scrap and a ton of  memories to treasure forever! Thanks for visiting my blog today.  Have a wonderful and blessed day and week!

Time to Scrap!

Good morning!  Hope your week is going great so far.  I love the title of this layout!  After all, when is it not time to scrap?

I used dolls from Unity and the large wooden clock is from Blue Fern Studio.

Baseball fun!

Good morning!  Here's a layout I made called "Baseball".  It's actually one of the kits I'm offering this month.

 
This is probably not one of the pictures that should end up on this layout.  It's Danny on the first day of Spring Training this year clowning around when they took individual pictures.  Fortunately, they took another one, but this one got leaked onto the internet somehow.


Then someone got the bright idea to sell T-shirts with this priceless image.  Here's me. Steve & Valerie modeling our "What the Farq" T-shirts!


And even his daughter Madison got into the act!


Here's a more normal picture of Danny with his family from a couple of weeks ago in Tampa.


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

Dogs

Good morning!  Hope you had a wonderful weekend.  I'm getting back from a get-together with "The Hive" in Dothan, Alabama.  I hope to use this week to rest up for the upcoming weekend because we'll be having out-of-town guest for the Fourth of July!

Here's a layout I made for dog lovers.  Before I had grandbabies, I had a granddoggie.   (I still love that little pooch, but I think I love the babies more.)

Summertime is here!

Good morning! Aren't you glad the weekend is here? Well, definitely we can say Summer is here because it has been soooo hot in Gainesville! The crazy thing is that we have been having thunderstorms every single afternoon for the last two weeks! It's a bummer for us because that is when I take the babies to swim, right after their nap. We might have to change them to mornings.
 





Have a fabulous, fun, safe, and blessed weekend! Come back Monday for more inspiration.
