Mother's Day

I have taught my daughter well!! She saw this card at the Hallmark store and immediately thought of me!!

The inside of the card had a special side to make a child's handprint!! And she did.

I was inspired to complete this layout for several challenges:

Color challenge at Life Paper Scrapbook

Polka Dot Challenge at Frosted Designs

And Sketch challenge at My Scraps and More

Thanks for looking!!


USed the sketch from Pamelas world of Scraps

for this little card

Father's Day

You know your kid is growing up when they actually purchase cards for Father's and Mother's Day! Rob bought a very nice card for his day but what made it more special was the paragraph he added. It brought his dad to tears.

I used this sketch from Life Paper Scrapbooks

Another Toot!!!

So Michigan Scrapbooker Magazine had a call for wedding layouts. Ironically, I submitted this layout on June 14th which was my 38th wedding anniversary!

It has our actual wedding invitation and the flowers are made from the bridesmaids dress fabric. For some reason I have yards of it.

And  I Won!!!!!

Here is Jean Marmo's winning wedding layout. She submitted her layout on June 14th and this is what she said: "Attached please find a layout using my wedding photo and invitation. We have been married 38 years today. The flowers on the layout are from the fabric of the bridesmaids dresses. For some reason I have yards of it!" Thank you to all of you who entered the contest and sent in photos of beautiful wedding layouts.

I won a prize pack from Remember When Scrapbook Store. 

Monday Inspiration

Paper crafter's corners posts a Monday inspiration

I immediately thought of my scrap basket. I was pretty sure I could make a sun from scraps. First, I played with my new Gelli plate to make a background paper. i also used an image from an old book page.

Love Sketch 237 from pamela's World of Scrap

Here is my take
Played with Pink Paislee Artisan and Gelatos!! I wanted to use the tickets and program so most of my circles got covered up.

Got to go to Chicago while DH was at the National Assoc. of Chemical Dist. conference. I attended many of the presenters so did not have a lot of time to wander. I did visit the lake  and  Millenium  park and on Friday before we headed home, stopped at Blicks!!

Wine and Canvas

Last Wednesday I attended a Wine and Canvas class with a friend. They supply the canvas, paint, brushes and someone to guide you through step by step. My painting probably improved with each glass of wine. It was fun to see how different everyone's came out! I will definitely do this again!!

Memorable Seasons June Design Kit.

I got to work with the lovely Lily Bee Destinations! This kit is not just for travel as you will see!

My first layout is a scraplift of Sally C at Memorable Seasons. My daughter has been dating a new guy for a couple of months. I finally got a photo of the two of them

My son recently decided he wanted to move to a new apartment but wasn't quite sure where so.....
Yes, he moved back in with us for a while:)

I am Back but will be Leaving:):)
