A lot to share today!

Good morning!  First of all,  Stuck On Us Sketches has a new sketch today by the one and only Liz Qualman.

I turned the sketch into a two-page layout and it worked!  I love these pictures of my husband and  our son. My title "Farquhar sweet world is always fun" is the total truth!  When these two guys are together they are either playing, joking or hugging!  These photos were taken last fall in Arizona on a hike up a mountain.  Stop by SOUS to join our challenge and to see the other designers' work.  They are all great inspirations.

Peggy and I played all afternoon yesterday.  I went through her boxes and, of course,  found some truly gorgeous stuff!  I am so glad that she is the "queen of scrapbooking-everything" and that we have the same taste!  She is into genealogy so she has been printing pictures of her ancestors dating back to the late 1800's.

 All afternoon scrapping and we can still manage to smile for the camera!

I love clustering!!!!

Peggy was about 7 years old in these pictures (these ones are not from the late 1800's).

Can you tell that we like flowers and bling?

Can you believe this photo was "photo-shopped" about 100 years ago?  Her great-great grandparents were photographed separately and they combined them into this one portrait.

My cheap camera didn't capture the fabulous colors of this page. These are greens and blues in different shades.  (I hope my husband follows my blog and gets me a new camera for Mothers' Day!)

Have a safe, fabulous and blessed weekend!

    Sorry I've not been around but I've been so caught up in family matters and I'm still doing a lot of running around. But, I haven't forgotten you and glad to see all's well!


  4. Hi, Beatriz ... there doesn't seem to many people on the blogs today .. guess folks are still working on taxes or something. Not me .. got done weeks ago! Anyway, these pages are great. What fun it would be to come and take your class! Lucky ladies! Love Peggy pages .. she is going to have a get a blog LOL Talk soon!

  5. Sounds like you had a great day! It is always so much fun to share a passion with someone who shares the same passion! Susan and I are so happy that we have scrappy time together and "scrap chat" every visit before we join the rest of our family! ;) Lovely LO's and such amazing old photos! How wonderful for Peggy to have all of this documented for future generations to come. :)

  6. Again, I am just amazed at the amout of projects you get done in one afternoon. I am a super slow crafter. These are all beautiful and really love the generation pages.
