Our Legacy

Good morning!  I trust that you had a wonderful weekend.
 
Here are two layouts that I made on the subjects of "family" and "legacy".  The colors I used on the second layout make it perfect for old black and white photos.
 


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

Happy Friday!

Good morning!  Here is another layout that I made for Treasured Memories.  It's a great title for a mix of old and current photos.  I'm not sure what you'll do for the future photos!
 

Thanks for visiting the blog this today.  Have a wonderful, safe and blessed week.

Piles of fun!

Good morning!  Here is yet another layout that I designed for Treasured Memories the last time I was there.  This one is about raking up all of those beautifully colored fallen leaves and what to do with the big piles. 
 
My husband tells me that he was young they would pile them all under a certain tree and then jump from the lower branches of the tree into the pile.  Then later they would light the pile on fire, something that is seldom done today because of the pollution laws.

Just Be You!

Good morning and happy Wednesday! This is another one of the layouts I designed for Treasured Memories last month. I love this paper line from Teresa Collins. So perfect for this time of year.
 
 
 
I belong to a great informal group of scrappers called The Hive and since my name is Bea we call it Bea's Hive.  We love everything with bees!  We meet once a month either in Dothan, Alabama (where we first met) or at a Scrapbook event somewhere in the Southeast.  I thank God for putting us together. We have the best of times and memories to last our lifetimes.
 
Here we are in the lobby of our hotel in Dothan this past weekend. 

 



And here we are outside!

 
Have a fabulous, wonderful, happy and blessed day!

Thank Heaven ... for Little Boys

Good morning friends!  Hope you had a lovely weekend. I spent mine with the Hive in Alabama scrapping for three days.  I feel totally refreshed after being surrounded by great company.
 
These are layouts totally related to little boys.  The first two I designed for Treasured Memories and the last one (Robots) I made it as a kit.
 



This is my precious grandson Andrew who inspires me to scrap little boy layouts.  He is very active and loves numbers, letters & shapes, the moon, and everything yellow - yellow lemons, yellow bananas, yellow sun (yeah... go figure!).

TLC

Good morning & happy Friday!  Here is a layout I made for Treasured Memories.  I made it colorful for a child's visit to the doctor or stay in the hospital.
 
 
Here's a picture of my granddaughter that would go perfect with this page.  She had some surgery the other day and this was just before she woke up from the anesthesia.

Just Imagine & C'est la Vie

Good morning!  Have you seen this new Prima collection called Epiphany?  It's busy but very striking.  Pictures printed in sepia will look great in this layout.
 

I designed this next layout for Treasured Memories last month.  Janet came up with this title since there's still some French dialect spoken in Louisiana and the Fleur de Lis with its French origin is very popular.


Have a wonderful and blessed day!

There's beauty all around...

Good morning and happy Monday!  Hope your weekend was as lovely and restful as mine.  I took the longest nap ever after I came home from church yesterday afternoon!  I didn't even know what day it was when I finally woke up and it was already dark outside.  I don't do that often enough, I guess.

These are layouts filled with color and layers. I designed them for Treasured Memories last month.
 

Julie Nutting dolls always look amazing no matter where you put them.


Madison and Andrew have been able to spend a lot of time together this year. They love each other very much and really enjoy being together, regardless of both wanting the same toy ALL THE TIME!!!



 My friend Sherry took these lovely pictures of them. Thank you my sweet friend and thank you for stopping by! Have a wonderful and blessed day!

Travel

Good morning and happy Friday!  In spite of my surgeries this Summer, I did a lot of traveling.  It seems like I was somewhere either close to or far from home every weekend.

Here are three layouts that I recently made.  The first two for Treasured Memories.
 



This one for Scrapateers.  In this one I combined a C Thru the Woods boy stamp with a Julie Nutting girl stamp.  They go together nicely, don't you think?

Our Story

Good morning!  Here is a layout that I custom made for a client for photos of her 30th wedding anniversary.  She wanted yellow and blues because that was the colors they had chosen for the decorations at their anniversary celebration.

Outdoor Activities

Good morning!  Welcome to another week.  I hope that you all had a wonderful weekend.  The weather was gorgeous here.  The kind of weather that makes you want to be outside without worrying suffering heat stroke or being eaten alive by mosquitos.

Here are three layouts that I made for your photos of your outdoor activities.   This first one is about fishing. 

This one is about hunting.

And this one is just about being out in the woods on a beautiful day.

He is a picture of my two oldest grandchildren  on a recent fishing expedition.  By this point they were done fishing and having fun throwing bread into the pond.

Thanks for visiting my blog today.  Here's to a wonderful and blessed week.

Vintage layouts

Good morning and happy Friday!  Well, I'm on my way to Dothan, Alabama today to scrap with a group of dear friends over the weekend.  I can hardly wait.
 
Here are a couple of vintage layouts I made recently.  I absolutely love using the brown lace.  It gives it that aged, but elegant look.
 


Well, I hope you got some inspiration from these two layouts.  Have a blessed and safe weekend and we'll see you on Monday!

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!
