Vintage Layouts

Good morning and happy Wednesday.  Here are a couple of layouts that I recently made.  I love playing around with this vintage style of papers and embellishments.

Thanks for visiting my blog this morning.  Have a wonderful and blessed day.

Santa is Coming, but Liam is Here

Good morning and happy Tuesday.  Here is another layout from my weekend with the Hive.  As I mentioned yesterday, I was in a Christmas mood.

And here is a photo of our newest grandchild who arrived Sunday.  His name is Liam Daniel.

And here he is with his proud papa who is now the father of three!

Isn't technology a wonderful thing?  Even though we're on opposite sides of the country, we're able to video-conference across the miles.  Here's a photo of me watching my daughter-in-law holding our newest grandson.  How long will it be before we're able to reach into the phone and hold them ourselves?

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

Weekend with the Hive

Good morning and happy Monday.  I just got back from a weekend with the Hive in Dothan, Alabama.  What a terrific time we had!

I was in a Christmas-y mood so most of the layouts I made were Christmas.  Here's just one of them!

And one of the things that we like to do during these get-togethers is to go to Hobby Lobby and Michael's and take pictures for out layouts.  Here are just a few of them.

Oh, my!  Now I will have to spend a couple of day recuperating and catching up on sleep!  Thanks for visiting my blog today.  Have a wonderful and blessed day

Patterns and Textures

Good morning and happy Friday!  Woo hoo, the weekend is here!  Hope you have great plans for the weekend.  I know that I do.

One of my favorite things about making layouts is mixing no only different colors, but different textures and patterns, as well.  These are not things which are achievable with digital layouts.  Here is another layout I made over the weekend using the Hungarian papers I wrote about a few days ago.

And here are some close-ups showing the joining of distressed papers, paper flowers, painted chipboard, metals, bling, and so on.  These photographs do not do it justice.

Thanks for visiting my blog today!  Have a wonderful and blessed day and a safe and restful weekend, filled with scrapbooking!
