Finishing Layouts

I am working on finishing last year's Christmas layouts before Christmas this year:) I think I can do it!

Here is another. I used this sketch from  Sketch N Scrap

Here is my layout

Sketches really help me pull a layout together quickly!

Cards - Handmade Paper

Not only did I make cards --- I made the paper for the cards!

Come check out my post over at ArnoldGrummersPaperMaking!

This is a fun and easy project - great for recycling and kids would love it!

See you there!

Christmas 2015

I am trying to finish scrapping last year's Christmas before this year's:) Don't know why I didn't do it sooner!

Each year I give my children a dated ornament. When they got married, I gifted each of them the box of ornaments that had been given over the years. I am continuing the tradition but often it is now just one per couple.

My daughter and son in law live in Phoenix, so last year's ornament was a snowflake to remind them of Michigan!

Football and Scrapping

I am watching college football ( a big thing in the state of Michigan) and scrapping. I guess it is time for me to finish last year's Christmas:)

I am using this sketch from StuckSketches

And here is my layout

Each year I give each of my kids a dated ornament. This wedding cake ornament was the perfect one for 2015. It is a reminder of the year Rob and Beth  got married. 

Got messy with paint and modeling paste!

Been Gone

For those who may not have heard the news shouted from the rooftops --- my daughter is expecting our first Grandchild in April. Unfortunately, Jennifer lives in Phoenix while I live in Michigan. I have to see my girl at this exciting time, so I  just got back from spending a week with her. At 20 weeks, she is looking pregnant! We shopped for maternity clothes, registered for baby goodies, and I cooked meals for her freezer as well as  cleaned and organized.

One afternoon, I had a bit of time so I got out the mixed media pad and some markers I brought.  I worked on loose sketches.

Now that I am back I am busy scrapping and finishing projects! Stay tuned!

Thank You

I love to send thank you notes - especially to people who do not expect one! I send one every time i win a prize. I appreciate giveaways so much and feel it is only right to thank the person sending it out!

Here is one I recently sent. I played with paint and created something a little different.

Thank you for visiting! I appreciate it!
