Stargazer

Good morning and happy Monday!  I hope that all had a lovely weekend.  We had absolutely gorgeous Spring weather here.  (I think that it's about time that the groundhog considers retirement.)

Here is a layout kit that I made using papers from the Carta Bella Space Academy collection.  I love the colors and the 50's-style rockets and robots.  My DH says that it reminds him of The Jetsons.  I still have a few of these kits available for sale on this blog.


Thanks for checking in to my blog today.  Have a wonderful and blessed day!

Pizza Party

Happy Friday! Another weekend is here and another month (albeit a short one) has flown by, hasn't it?  Well it's a perfect time for all-night scrapping sessions with pizza on the agenda!  This is a recent kit of mine.  It looks good enough to eat!


Thanks for visiting my blog today.  Have a wonderful, safe, blessed and fun weekend!

Grandpa

Good morning! Hope your week is going great so far.  I am getting so excited about my next trip to Treasured Memories in Lafayette, Louisiana. We are having Treasured Memories first Faith Day Event. I will be teaching Bible Journaling, Project Life,  a faith scrapbook layout, a mini book for journaling as well and many, many awesome ideas and techniques. Then the rest of the weekend I will be designing 20 new kits for Janet. You know that she is AMAZING designing and making her own titles! Each kit will have one of these titles in it. You can visit her FB page for her awesome sneak peaks at Scrapbooking with "TM" (Facebook).

Like I shared yesterday, my new kits are up but many of them have been selling out pretty fast. Here's one of the kits which sold out in an evening.


Have a fabulous and blessed Thursday! And remember to print those pictures that are on your phone!

The Unicorn is a Mythical Beast - James Thurber

Good morning and happy Wednesday.  Here's a new layout of mine that features the unicorn, one of my grand-daughter's favorite animals.  Her brother insists that the unicorn is not real.  Carolina says that it is because she has a book about unicorns.  You can't argue with that kind of logic.

Happy Birthday, Danny!

Good morning and happy Monday.  I hope that you had a great weekend.  We went to Port Charlotte on Friday to celebrate my son's 30th birthday.  We were joined by my sister and niece from Ft. Lauderdale and our daughter was able to make it down after work.  (We had kidnapped her two kids at 6 am on our way out of town.) The celebration started in the afternoon with a bowling session.  Here's the group.  Danny's keeping up a family tradition by wearing the official "family birthday hat".


Here's Danny with a couple of his buddies from the team.  (They all bowled with their opposite hands so as to not risk injury.)


Here's Danny showing his son Landon the finer points of bowling.


There was even an article in the local paper about his birthday!


And of course here are a couple of layouts where the photos from this fun day will go!

Snap Shots of You

Good Morning and happy Thursday.  I'm excited because my son and his family are back in Florida for the next eight months.  Right now they're in Port Charlotte, but will be moving up to the Tampa area in April.  They came to visit me last weekend in St. Petersburg and we're going to be visiting them in Port Charlotte this coming weekend.

Here is a recent layout of mine.  I love the lady with the glasses.  I'd like to think that she looks like me, even though she doesn't.


Here us my DIL and granddaughter last weekend in St. Pete.


Here I am with Danny and his two.

Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day!  Hope your day is filled with love, flowers, chocolate and many hugs! And I also hope that you take many, many pictures (selfies allowed) even if it's just doing something simple. Enjoy all of these love-inspired layouts I made over the weekend. 





This beautiful arrangement was made by one of the ladies at the Whim-So-Doodle crop this past weekend for another participant.  Absolutely gorgeous.

Masculine Layouts

Good morning and happy Thursday.  Today I have a couple of recent "masculine" layouts.  Even though I used more subdued colors and used gears and other "manly" embellishments, I couldn't resist at least a few flowers!

More Spring Layouts

Good morning! I know that it's still officially winter and there are still winter storms in several places but.... Doodlebug has come up with very cute collections this year!  So, here are two more layouts I made using them. The colors are just so happy and cheery.




Andrew is still home taking it easy, taking all his meds and feeling better. Thank you all for keeping him in your prayers. Have a wonderful and blessed day!

Spring Fairies

Happy Tuesday!  I got my hands on the new Doodlebug Designs Spring Collection and played with it. I had the cute fairy from Jolee's that went perfect with the theme.


Andrew (our 5 year old grandson) has a severe ear infection and both eardrums ruptured over the weekend. The little guy is in so much pain, poor thing. Carolina said she wanted to be his "butterfly nurse".  Here she is with her face painted.


And here she is with her wings attached.  We are praying for a speedy recovery and in the meantime we are loving him and spoiling him rotten!!!


Have a wonderful and blessed day and please keep Andrew in your prayers.

At the Playground

Good morning!  Hope your week is going great so far.

Children LOVE playgrounds, no matter the weather, the season, the town or the size! Having 4 grandchildren of my own, under the age of 6, I have to say that my husband and I know almost all the playgrounds around town.

When my son and his family were in Japan a few weeks ago guess where he went almost every morning he was there?  To the closest playground from the hotel where they were staying at!  Landon eat dirt here and there and Madison made a friend whom she loved. 





Here's the perfect layout for thoese wonderful pictures. I know she will treasure them specially when she gets older.


Be inspired, print those pictures and scrap them! Have a fabulous and blessed day!

My Beach Box

Good morning and happy February!  I hope that your week is going well.

Like many of us, I keep  plastic containers of scrapbooking things for use at a later date.  I have theme boxes (as I call them) for birthdays, holidays, dinosaurs, cowboys, sports, etc.  You name it.  Well, this past weekend I took my Beach Box with me to Alabama.  Unless you live in the Southern Hemisphere, it's way too cold to even think about going to the beach.  That's exactly why I took it.  To get my mind off of the cold.

Here are a couple of my creations:



Thanks for visiting today.  Have a wonderful and blessed day and try to stay warm!
