Good morning!  I have been having lots of fun with some of my grandchildren.  We've made lots of banana nut bread, and gone on many a walks looking for wonderful fall leaves, and played lots of new games!  I've read the same book over and over, put the same puzzle together over and over, and listened to the same hummed songs over and over!!  But, know what?  I'm so enjoying every second with the kids.  They are so special!! 

I have a couple of layouts to share today--
I made them both with the same kit.  It is a collab between Ruby Lane and Misty O'Brien called
Fall Festival and you can find it here: Funky Playground and I also used a template called Hodgity Podigity 3 on the Birthday Cake layout (from 2009), and a freebie blog template called Autumn Template on the Celebrate Fall layout. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!!  Come back soon ya hear?

Hi!  I've been out of action for a bit!  I have some layouts to catch up on, but only time for one before church this morning.  I had this cute photo of Sarah, and when I saw the sweet elements in this kit, I knew the mix was what I was looking for!  I love this layout, and of course Sarah too!!  :)  She has grown so much.  We just celebrated her 4th birthday about 2 weeks ago in fact.  She is still as precious as she was when this photo was taken, but oh so much her own little person. 

I used the kit called You Make Me So Happy by Aprilisa Designs that you can find here:
And I have a few photos of some of my other grandchildren that were taken yesterday at Sea World!  It looks like they had a great time huh?  They haven't seen each other in quite a long time, so I'm thrilled they  had this chance to be together!

I'm not quite sure where the other two were, but they weren't in any of the photos shared!!  :)  Aren't they just the cutest??
Thanks for stopping by.  I'll be back posting a little more regularly very soon.

Hi!  I've been BUSY!!  I have a few things to share today--I'm a little behind on my postings. 
First off, did you see that C.W. Picket is guesting this
month at Scrapable?  She took her cute Camp Out kit there with her--you can find it here:  Camp Out 

I made a couple of layouts with this kit that I love!  Scrapping is so much fun because it allows you to relive fun times from the past!  Sometimes that "past" is yesterday, and sometimes it goes back a lot further.  I use scrapping to stay close to the grandchildren.  I don't get to see them as often as I'd like, but I have boxes and boxes full of photos (and a few hard drives too!).  So when I go back through the photos to decide what to scrap, those precious memories of our time together come flooding back to me.  I love that!   These particular photos are from a camp trip we shared with the the Thompson grandchildren in 2004, and the second layout was from photos we took in San Diego when we visited in April.  What fun with these precious girls!!

 Another kit I've used in the last week or so is called Autumn Melody from Mandy King.  You can find that kit here: Autumn Melody.  I made this layout of Micah and I with it.  I loved that trip to the Pumpkin Patch!  It was so much fun.  Fall offers so many opportunities to have fun in the beautiful outdoors that God gave to us!!  Thank you God for memories and for a beautiful world to live in!
Kerry Stewart also released a kit today called Perfect Pumpkin that brought back memories of Colorado and helping Micah and Abby pick out their perfect pumpkin a "few" years ago!  More precious memories.  The kit can be found at 2 peas in a bucket, and is called Perfect Pumpkin, which is the name of the layout too!  It fit!  
 I also used a template from Photocowgirl on this one!!  She's guesting this month at EES.  Be sure to check out her great template pack when it gets loaded there!  
I have more to post, but no time now!  Will try and get back later to add some more!  Have a good day, and thanks for looking!
