Summertime and the Livin' is Easy



Well ... that's according to my dear sons who are all out of school and lovin' every minute of Summer! My house feels like chaos now that they're back but it's a good kind of crazy. You just forget how much teenage boys can eat and sleep, LOL! I did this layout for SCS VSBN (Virtual Scrapbooking Nights) which was this past weekend. The challenge was to use a "word cloud" which they gave the site for to create. It worked perfectly for these picts I had of the boys. This layout was a fun one because it was time to get out my NEW pack of CTMH Fanfare and play! The layout idea came from Studio J. Nope...it's a done traditional but sometimes when I'm looking for a sketch idea, Studio J is a GREAT place to get ideas! I'm sure I'll have lots more fun Summer Pages soon and this paper pack will be coming out again! FUN colors! Supplies: CTMH Fanfare, EK Success Punch, CM Star Punch, Cricut CM Cheerful Seasons

Ties That Bind Us Together



This weekend I had time to scrap! Yay! I think my Scrap Mojo is back from it's vacation. This page is of my son Brandon home from college on Spring Break. There are days I look at pictures of him and wonder where the time went. The layout came from a scraplift challenge at SB.com and thanks to Jen & Angie on the SCS Recyclers Thread I had some cute ribbon & bling to add. Of course, my new Spellbinder Labels 4 added just the perfect touch for the title, embellishment and journal spaces. The paper is CTMH Emporium, I've just about used it all! Gasp! Supplies: CTMH Kraft CS, CTMH Emporium Paper, CTMH Inks Sweet Leaf, Crystal Blue, Vineyard Berry, Cocoa, Amuse Banner Die, Spellbinders Labels 4, Crinkle Ribbon, Bling, Stamps Hero Arts Cheery Bird

I've Arrived!

In my usual fashion, late but with a GREAT story to tell. I didn't join the bloggers of the world until now because what would I have to share, at the time, I didn't think anything...well...I've changed my mind. I do want to share with all my friends and family-- my thoughts, creations and ideas. So, welcome to my World.

We'll Live, Love and Laugh 4 Life together!

Looking out the Living Room Window I realized today was a good day to get those projects I've been putting off DONE! It was beautiful to look at but I sure didn't want to get out in it this morning! Good thing I was on vacation.
