Little Boy Layouts

Good morning!  I always get requests for little boy layouts.  This first one is one of my kits from earlier this month.  It turned out to be very popular!

I made this layout for one of my friends.  This collection is from Creative Imaginations.  I absolutely love how the papers are embossed to look like a Lego block.  And the colors are so bright and vibrant.

Speaking of bright and vibrant, my daughter-in-law took Madison to Tulip Town, a beautiful seasonal attraction north of Seattle.  This is essentially a tulip bulb farm that is open to the public during the month of April when the flowers are in bloom.  Lexie says that words cannot describe the beauty of the place.

Madison Rose was like a butterfly enjoying the flowers.

She also wanted to smell each one of them.

There's nothing like God's creation....Matthew 6:28-29 says: See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet, I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these.

Have a wonderful, happy and blessed day!

Girly Girl and a New Boy Stamp!

Good morning!  Hope you had a terrific weekend.

Here are two new layouts that I made with the same Julie Nutting doll, only dressed slightly different to match the colors of the layout.

And here's a layout made with a new boy stamp from a different designer.  His name is Andrew, just like my grandson.  I'm planning on combining him with Julie Nutting dolls in the very near future since they're all the same size.

 Thanks for stopping by today to my blog.  Have a wonderful and blessed Monday.

St. Patrick's Day Revisited

Good morning! I've heard that we celebrate St. Patrick's Day here in the U.S. a lot more than in Ireland!  You see all the decorations, scrapbook papers and embellishments everywhere you go. They are all so cute!

So of course I had to make layouts about that special day, even if that's mostly in America, right? Well, here they are! 

If you are Irish or just love the pot of gold and shamrocks you can make one of these for yourself! Have a wonderful, fun, safe and fabulous weekend! Come back Monday for more inspiration.

Strawberry Picking

Good morning!  Here's a layout that I made for some photos taken on a strawberry picking expedition with my daughter and grandbabies a few days ago.

The only problem is that I have six photos and left myself only five photo mats.  I may have to redo the layout because there's no way I want to leave out any of these photos!

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

Good morning!  I love to make layouts with titles like this because almost any picture taken within the walls of our homes (especially those not posed) seem to fit well, like this one ...

... that my daughter took of me trying to get a little scrapbooking in while I'm babysitting two.  You can tell that this one wasn't posed because I didn't even get a chance to take my glasses off before she snapped it!  There's no place like home!

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

Non-Stop Fun!

Good morning!  Here are a couple of layouts I designed the last time I was at A Scrap in Time in Crestview, Florida.  They're themed for family game night where all of the board games and cards come out of the closet and get put to use!

I'm really getting antsy to get out of the house.  I'm sooooo looking forward to the first Saturday in May when I go back to A Scrap in Time to celebrate National Scrapbook Day.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a wonderful and blessed Tuesday!

Happy Monday!

Good morning! Hope you had a lovely weekend. I spent mine with my dear friends Peggy and Joy who came to visit me this weekend. We scrapped until dawn, slept for just a few hours and then back at our tables for more fun. We didn't want the weekend to end!!!!

The following three layouts were designed for A Scrap in Time in Crestview, Florida. Each one of them tells a story. This first one is about an amazing woman reflecting her abilities as a homemaker.  It's perfect for a mother or grandmother's photos.

This one is perfect for a "selfie" photo!

And this one's titled My Bucket List.

Hope you are inspired by all of the possibilities above and make them your own. Have a fabulous, fun and blessed Monday!

Chalkboard is In!

Good morning!  Have you noticed that I am crazy about Prima's Chalkboard papers?  I just love the black background.  It makes the bright colors really stand out!

This is another one that I designed for A Scrap in Time last time I was there.

I made this layout for a friend who is scrapping the ultrasound pictures of her grandbaby. Cute title, eh?

Have a fabulous, fun, safe and blessed Thursday!

Our Heroes

Good morning! Hope you are having a great week so far. I designed these layouts in honor of our military heroes last time I was at A Scrap in Time.  AST is located in Crestview, Florida, in the Florida panhandle, home to a number of military bases. These layouts where very popular among the locals.

Have a wonderful and blessed Wednesday!

Animal Lover

Happy Tuesday!  Having a little boy around the house makes one have a special tender heart towards anything that moves, crawls, barks, meows or growls.  Andrew recently received a dinosaur puzzle and is now excited about them.  While his mother calls them all by their correct names, his grandmother (me) uses names like "esophagus", "stroganoff", "ambidextrous" or any word that comes to mind!!! Here's a layout I made for him that I was able to turn into a kit.

Of course he also loves dogs; all sizes, shapes and colors.

Here's a layout I designed for A Scrap in Time.  I used one of the new Julie Nutting's dolls that comes with her adorable pet poodle by her side.

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

I Love You!

Happy Monday!  Hope you had a lovely weekend.  My sister came to visit and to spoil me rotten over the weekend.  She left last night and I already miss her sooo much!  Nothing like family, right?  I am feeling much better and I am starting to scrap this week since I am able to sit up for longer periods of time. I will be posting my new kits sometime this week so be on the lookout!

These are two layouts with the same title and yet so different from each other.

I designed this layout for A Scrap in Time last time I was there.

This is my sister Andi holding baby Carolina when she was born. I LOVE YOU!!!!

Have a wonderful and blessed day!

Pretty Titles

Happy Friday!  Wow.... this week just flew by, didn't it?  Well, here I am with more layouts and this time I want to concentrate on their pretty titles such as A Moment in Time, Pretty Day and Happy Days are Here.  Almost any picture from any occasion will look good in them.

Tomorrow is our son's last day in Phoenix where he's been for Spring Training.  He spent his day off yesterday hiking up the beautiful Camelback Mountain. What a view from the top!

He starts the season playing in Los Angeles on Monday.  He told us that he is ready to win!  Go Mariners!

For the rest of you, have a wonderful and blessed weekend!

I Love Grandma!

Good morning!  If you are a grandma you know that your heart totally melts when you hold one of those babies in your arms. Mine heart is totally sold out for the three grandkids I have so far! 

One of the most requested kits I get is about grandma's. This layout was one of my kits I did recently. I loved the paper line and the colors, so bright and happy.

You can see more details in these close up pictures.

Well, thanks for stopping by today.  I hope you found some inspiration in this layout.  Have a wonderful and blessed day!

Various layouts for Spring

Happy Tuesday! I am sharing four layouts I made recently, perfect for the season since the flowers are starting to bloom everywhere.

Make sure you take lots of pictures while the flowers are in full bloom. I want to share this song with you today, as it has touched my heart thru all my health ordeals lately. I hope it ministers to you as much as it has to me. Remember God loves you and He will give you everything you need to endure it all.  The God I know SONG . Have a wonderful and blessed day!
