School Layouts

Good morning and happy Tuesday!  I made two "school" kits in this latest batch.  

Our 4-year-old grandson has started Pre-K and absolutely loves it.  When I picked him up after school yesterday afternoon, he told me "Today was the eleventh day of school.  Tomorrow is going to be the twelfth."  He tells us that he's going to go to school until he's 28!




Here's Andrew going into his school on the "eleventh" day.  (Today will be the twelfth!)


And today is our oldest grandchild's birthday.  Madison Rose is five today.

Yesterday her mother took her to the pool.  She told her "Mama, this is the best last day of being four.  We went swimming in the rain, saw a rainbow, did 5 cannonballs (strictly prohibited in their community pool, but what the heck, the old fogies had already gone home) and jumped in every puddle on the way home."  

These are the simple pleasures of life, are they not?!


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

Bucket List

Good morning and happy new week!  I hope that you had a safe and restful weekend.  I think that this was the first weekend in several that I actually stayed home.

During my life I have done a number of things that might actually be on other people's "Bucket Lists".  I've ridden the highest cablecar in the world and I have seen the highest waterfall.  These things were done long before I even new what a "bucket list" was.

Now that I do, there are a few things like skydiving or ziplining that I would like to try.  Unfortunately, my medical limitations will probably prohibit me from ever doing them.  Oh, well.  At least I can dream about them.

Here is a layout celebrating the "Bucket List".  It's also one of my latest kits that I have for sale.  


You can see this one and others by clicking on the happy scrappy shopper at the top of this page.  Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a wonderful and blessed day!

Hello Sisters!

Happy Friday! Are you ready for the weekend? I sure am! We get to babysit two of our grandchildren both days and we have plans!

Here's a layout I designed recently using the new Crate Paper Collection called "Cute Girl". Its name says it all because it is soooo cute and has adorable embellishments. I used Faith Illustrated papers.


I will be posting all new kits on this blog on Sunday, stay tuned! Have a wonderful and blessed weekend!

Hey Girl

Good morning and happy Wednesday!  Regular followers of this blog will know that I have two lovely granddaughters who are most definitely girly girls.  Madison is soon to be 5 and Carolina is 2½.

I made this layout with them in mind.  The girl is a digital stamp downloaded from Saturated Canary.  I colored her with copic markers


Here are some of the photos that will go on this page.  This is Madison modeling a new dress.


Carolina on her "phone" to my aunt in Venezuela.


Madison on the beach.


Carolina all accessorized and ready to go.


Thanks for stopping by again.  Have a wonderful and blessed day!
