Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving my friends!  I hope your surrounded by family and friends!  This year is a quiet one for us.  All of our grown children are elsewhere this holiday so we will be eating out.  Then having a relaxing day at home.  I have chosen to look toward the positive and realize that this will be more and more the norm as our children are getting married. 

Have a Blessed Day!

You Did It!...

Hi Friends!  Wow where has this month gone???  I have been so busy taking care of family, church happenings and giving my scraproom a makeover, that the month has slipped by.  My hubby and I celebrated our 30th anniversary this week!  I can't believe that either...he's my high school sweetheart, my middle school crush!!!
I'm very excited and honored to be GDT @ Stick it Down for the last challenge of the month.  You will have until December 1 to get those entries in!  It's a 2 page layout but you know the drill you can do one side or the other.  I really hope you'll find time to fit it in your busy schedule to play along.


Have a Blessed Day!

Fish Stories Told Here...

Hi Friends!  Thinking of  you all up north and the snow a lot of you have been receiving.  We are due to have a hard freeze here in South Florida this week.  At least it warms up though so I'm not complaining.

Coming Soon...

Hi Friends!  So happy to share my latest layout with for the challenge @ Colorful Creations.  The challenge is not only a color challenge but a sketch challenge too!  The reason I was excited about my layout is I have been wanting to scrap this picture for a long time.  I wanted to use the Cricut Cartridge 9 months on my page.  My picture is over two years ago and my precious little grandson will be 3 in May.  Wow time sure does fly!

As you can see I flipped the sketch.

I focused on the blue, yellow and gray and whites.

Have a Blessed Day!

Hi Friends!  I have another layout to share with you of my precious grandson and his little friend.  I can't believe it's been 4 years since then...time sure flies!  I used the cutest stack from DCWV "The Kidlet Stack".
I used a sketch from Stuck?! and combined it with a picture challenge @ Pixel and Paper which teamed up with Child's Play.  Combining them was so easy and I had the pictures already picked out so just adding the word challenge items was just about all I had to do!  Love when things just fit!!

Recipe- Paper- DCWV & Coredinations, Eyelets- Making Memories, Brads- Colorbok, Journaling Sprouts- jillibean soup, Ink- Studio G, DNC Floss Glossy Accents- Ranger, Misc. Button


Looking at this photo I was inspired by the stuffed animal toys.

Something older than 1 year- The kids are 4  now  
3 patterned papers, I used more than 3 patterned papers

I Heart Autumn...

Hi Friends!  Here's a layout I did of a trip I took to Indiana in the fall.  Living in Florida we don't get to see all the beautiful leaves change.  I miss that but I didn't like having to rake them as a kid!  By the time I arrived to my mother in laws house most of the leaves had fallen and had lost those pretty colors but we enjoyed our time in the woods.
I think this is the first tie I have played along @ Stick it Down and loved doing a 2 page layout.

Recipe- Paper- DCWV & Recollections. Cricut Cartridge Live Simply, Hoot n Holler, George & Basic Shapes, Cricut Alphabet and Cut Font- Bready Regular, Wiggle Eyes, Buttons- Darice, Die Cuts- SEI

Have a Blessed Day!
