Wonder Woman

Good morning and happy Friday!  Wow. what a great time we had at the Rayne Scrapbooking Event yesterday.  I'm expecting today to be even better!

You know, people are starting to call me Wonder Woman, as in "I wonder where I left my phone" or "I wonder where my car is parked." or "I wonder where my keys are."  So in honor of that plus the new movie, here's a layout kit of my appropriately titled Wonder Woman!


Thanks for stopping by my blog today.  Have a wonderful and blessed day and a safe and restful weekend.

Scraping My Heart Out

Good morning and happy Thursday!  Today starts the first weekend of the Rayne Event sponsored by Treasured Memories.  We drove over yesterday and cannot wait for the festivities to begin.  I definitely plan to Scrap My Heart Out, just like the title of this layout says.


Stay tuned to this blog and to my Facebook page for updates on the event.  And thanks for visiting my blog today.  Have a wonderful and blessed day!

Fun Weekend in Orlando

Happy Tuesday! Hope you had a fabulous and restful weekend. I attended a crop at Coronado Springs Resort in Disney sponsored by Craft Escapes. It was soooo much fun! Their events are always over the top. I got to wear my two Disney LuLaRoe leggings and so did many friends at the crop. It's awesome to be "over the hill" like me because you get to wear things like that!

Here are some of the layouts I made. Hope you like them!




Thank you for stopping by! Have a blessed and joyful day!

Chill Out

Good morning and happy Friday!  Tomorrow afternoon I will be teaching a class at The Crafty Dreamers Craft Escapes in Orlando.  The layout that I will be teaching is shown below.

Cars

Good morning and happy Thursday!  I've heard it said that the only difference between men and boys is the cost of their toys.  Here's a picture of my grandson Landon with one of his toys ...


... and here's a picture of his father with one of his.



Here's a layout that I mad yesterday that will be perfect for these two photos.

Summer Project

Good morning and happy Wednesday!  The week is half over.  More than half for me because I leave for the Craft Escape at Coronado Springs, Orlando on Friday morning.  The car is gassed up and I'm ready to go.

This Summer, Andrew is going to camp at his pre-school and Carolina is spending a lot of time with her schoolteacher father who is off for the Summer.  Nonetheless, I still have them over several afternoons a week.  We started a project which is a large world map that needs to be colored.  It's so big that it takes up the entire dining room table.  They're doing it in "mixed media".  Some days they're using Crayolas, another day it will be markers and other days it will be water color paint.

Andrew already knows most of the countries.  The only issues we're having is that Andrew is not pleased with his sister's coloring skills.  (She does not stay within the lines as well as he does.)


Here's a layout that I can use to put photos like the one above.  They can travel all around the world with ever leaving my dining room!

More Patriotic Layouts

Good morning and happy Tuesday.  Hope that you are all doing well and continue to carry that 4th of July pride in your heart.  For me, who was not born in this country, I carry it with me every day of the year!

This past weekend I had a bunch of Independence Day stuff and a bit of time on my hands so I made these three last layouts.




They are available for purchase, but they are only originals, not kits.  Let me know.

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

Little Firecracker

Good morning and happy Friday.  Even though July 4th is not until Tuesday, tomorrow is the start of the four-day Independence Day weekend.  We don't have any big plans because my DH works all days except Sunday.

I've always enjoyed this holiday because it is such a festive celebration.  And the fireworks at night are wonderful.  Here's a new layout for your Fourth of July photos, Little Firecracker.


Thanks for swinging by today.  Have a wonderful and blessed day and a restful weekend.

Going Bananas

Good morning and happy Thursday!  Today's layout is from my latest batch of kits.  It's titled Going Bananas and features monkeys.  


When we went on vacation a couple of weeks ago, our granddaughter had a whole menagerie of stuffed animals that she wanted to take along.  I told her that she could bring just one.  She promptly went back into the house and returned with just one; a big stuffed monkey as tall as her.

And when we arrived at Pigeon Forge, she was excited to see Sam the Monkey's big big brother hanging from the side of a building.  When we drove past it she commented that he looked angry.  We told her that probably his underpants were too tight!

Who Doesn't Like Bugs?

Good morning and happy Friday!  Woo hoo!  The weekend is here!

I've mentioned that we've been having a lot of rain around here recently.  And you know what rain brings?  It brings BUGS!  Bugs like mosquitoes that hatch, but mostly bugs who don't like the waterlogged ground and come indoors.

Andrew likes bugs.  Here he is with a lady bug.


Carolina does not care for them at all.  In fact, she doesn't want to ride in her grandfather's car anymore since she saw a teeny tiny spider crawling across the trunk,

Here is a kit from May titled "Bugs" for people who like them and even for people who don't.


And speaking of kits, I have a new batch that we will be publishing on Sunday.  Keep on the lookout for them.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a wonderful and blessed day and a safe and restful weekend.

Summer Fun

Happy Tuesday! It's been raining here for the last 24 hours non-stop. I know that the first day of Summer is tomorrow, but I think that someone didn't get the memo on that.


Last week on vacation we rode canoes and went swimming. Perfect pictures for this layout !

Family Memories, Back from Vacation

Happy Monday!  We are back from our week-long vacation to Indiana (Turkey Run State Park), Kentucky (Ark Encounter), Tennessee (Gatlinburg and the Smoky Mountains) and Georgia (Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta).  Andrew and Carolina were amazing and well behaved.  Their favorite part of the trip was  hiking up and down the trails in Indiana and Tennessee.  They were fearless!  After a full day of activities we would crash in  our next hotel and they would swim until evening fell.  Family vacations are the best!

This was one of my kits last month.  I kept the original because I knew I would use it soon.  It's perfect for many of our pictures this summer.


Thank you for visiting my blog today. Stay tuned because I have about 25 new kits that will be available this week and will all be posted here. Have a fabulous and blessed day!

That Hurt!

Good morning and happy Thursday!  Here's a layout for folks that DO NOT like to go to the doctor (which is probably most everyone).

We have a great way of "healing" our crying grandchildren when they fall, stub their toe, or bump their head.  We get very serious and tell them "Oh, my.  This looks serious.  We'd better get in the car and go see the doctor."  It's amazing how quickly the hurt goes away!


Thanks for your visit today!  Have a wonderful and blessed day.

Woof Woof

Good morning and happy Wednesday!  OK. who doesn't love dogs?  Here's a layout that I titled "Woof Woof".  I had originally wanted it to be "Guao Guao", which is how dogs bark in my home country, but I was overruled by my DH.

Well now that Memorial Day is passed and most schools are out of session, it's time for that Summer Vacation.  It doesn't matter whether you drive there or take a boat, a plane or a train.  It's special time together with your loved ones where you can actually put the electronics away and just enjoy each other's company.

Love that Water

Good morning and happy Friday.  Another week has come and gone.  I hope that you have great plans for the weekend and that they include some scrapbooking!

We'll be taking off on a one week vacation to the mid-west.  Absolutely nowhere near the ocean, but that doesn't mean that we don't love that water.  Here are a couple of layouts featuring the ocean.

It's Graduation Time

Good morning and happy Thursday!

Graduations are in the air.  They've either happened or are about to.  I remember what my DH told me when he finished college so many years ago.  He said "Four years ago I couldn't even spell graduate and today I are one!"

Here are two recent layout kits for just the occasion.
