I am back!

Good morning! I am back after a beautiful weekend at Treasured Memories in Lafayette, Louisiana. There most be something in the papers that make ladies happy, fun & creative.  At only her first crop, look how wonderful her pages turned out!!!

These are some of the layouts I designed for several of the croppers.  This first one is very "boyish" with strong colors and textures.  There ain't no girlie-boys in Cajun Country!

This 12 x 24 is going into a shadow box.  The collage of vintage and modern photos was done in sepia, so we kept the colors of the papers  and embellishments complimentary.  There are seven sets of twins in this family!  So far, that is!

This is from the Enchanted BoBunny collection.  The frames are for 5 x 7 photos.  This layout will be part of a wedding album that will stay with these colors throughout the entire album.

I will have more pages from this crop in the upcoming days.  Be sure to check back in throughout the week.

This is how my precious daughter-in-law Lexie welcomed us the first night of the crop when we came home at 2:30 am.

And the second night......

She made us some chocolate covered strawberries too. I felt so welcomed and loved! Thank you Lexie!!!!!

I got to spend all the Sunday with my grand-baby Madison Rose who turned  5 months yesterday.  She is already sitting and crawling!!!!! She is soooo cute!

I am so thankful to the Lord for a beautiful weekend, for the gift of friendship and for bringing me home safe and sound. Have a great and blessed day!


  1. Wow - what a great daughter you have! Looks like it was better than staying in a Hotel :-) And I agree - there must be something with papers and embellishments that make ladies happy :-) Have a nice day!!
