Hi!  I've been on a roll this week!  I really love scrapping when it just falls together so easily!  Of course, having such wonderful designers to work with really helps the creative juices flow!  I have a few to share--some can't be posted yet because the kits haven't been released! 

Here is a layout  that I used the great kit PANDEMIC by Dream Big Designs and Pixelily Designs found here:
These boys really love each other---and now there are three in the mix!  There were three when this photo was taken, but the photo only had the two boys.  Jacob was too small for the bear hug!!  I hear he's the biggest bear huger now though!!  Sounds like Amy is earning her keep trying to keep up with him!
I made a template for this layout for the template challenge that you can find here as a freebie:  template challenge.  Come on over and join the fun!  We'd love to have you!
Thanks for stopping by!!  Have a good day, and may God Bless you!

Hi!  I've been feeling so bad with my allergies. It's going to be a long spring as the lilacs haven't even budded yet.  The good part of allergies, though, is time INSIDE to scrapbook! I can't seem to go outside much at all as the allergies really get me down. Thankfully, the allergies seem to be letting up a bit!
So, two of the layouts I've gotten done this week are Disney layouts of one of the Birds trips!  They had a year pass there, and I have a lot of photos, but haven't done many layouts!  Poor Noah was still a little shy when it came to meeting the characters, but Jonah was a bit braver.  Jonah especially loved the princesses, as you'll see in the first layout!  :)  By the time they met the super heros, Noah was feeling a little braver.  Here are my two layouts!
 I used the fun kit Frou Frou Fairy by Caged Bird Designs for the first layout which is  my grandsons meeting the Disneyland princesses.  Aren't the boys just adorable?  Look at the cute expression on Jonah's face.  He looks like the Bird that ate the canary!  He's holding hands with the beautiful princess and he can hardly believe it!!  You can find this sweet kit I used for this layout here: Frou Frou Fairy

The second layout demanded a bit more color and boldness, so I chose a kit called World Of Magic by Catia Cunha that you can find here:  World of Magic.  I hope to get to some more Disney layouts soon!  These were fun to make.
Thanks so much for stopping by--May God bless you!

Hi!  Happy Sunday!  I'm suffering with Spring allergies--but since I can't go outside, I've been busy scrapping.  I'm always on the lookout for great beach or water related kits to work with.  I recently found a really fun one!  It was designed by Dream Big Designs, and the name of it is Submerged!  It was just perfect for me to use on some of my San Diego photos, and can't wait to use it for some Sea World photos too.  We always have beach photos to use, so this one was a lot of fun.
Here is the layout I did with it:
It has a white background, so you can't see the edges well!  :)  You can find this fun kit here:
Submerged.  Thanks for stopping by today--and if you are suffering from the same spring allergies as I am, I'll pray for you!  Just think--summer will be here before we know it.  God is so faithful!!  He has the seasons under His control.  We remain in His capable hands!

Today is Wednesday!  Half the week is gone already.  I'm coming down with a cold--or a sinus infection--or an allergy attack!  Whatever it is, I'm NOT feeling well for sure!  Earl is working on a computer program to figure out how to play trains with grandchildren in Tennessee while we live in California.  He's a genius, so I'm sure he'll think of something!  :)  We miss our little guys--and grandpa misses playing trains with them. 
I have a few layouts to share with you to day.  I made a layout of Amy and Becky.  The photo was taken in June when Amy and Scott were going through Denver on their way to their new home in Tennessee.  The girls (sisters) had lots of fun together, and I'm sure they enjoyed seeing all the kids playing together.  Being a mom, I love that my girls can get together once in awhile.  I wish it was more often--I'm sure they both miss that closeness they once had.  Anyhow, here is the layout.  I used a kit called I Am Woman by Mandy King and Marie H, and you can find it at Scrappity-doo-dah! 
Almost all the other layouts I've done since my last post, I can't post yet--but there is one more I can post!  It's about my granddaughters in San Diego. The kit I used was called Any Other Place in the Sun from Dani Salles that you can find at at DigitalScrapCafe.  The name of the layout is It's NOT Hawaii--and chronicles our trip to the beach when we visited San Diego!  These girls love to visit the beach!
Thanks so much for stopping by!!  Come back soon.  May God Bless you!

Hello Blog!  How are ya doing?  Anything happening here??
I've got a few layouts to share this evening!  
The first one is one I made with a kit from Modern June called Vintage Flea.  When she posted the sneak peek we (the creative team) wasn't sure if it was going to be a vintage kit, or a circus kit, or a bug kit!  But it's a GREAT kit!  I love it.  I made this layout of me when I was a little girl (Kindergarten photo).  My mom had given me my first permanent.  She loved it and told me how beautiful I was, but LOOK AT THAT PHOTO!!  I think she was lying to me so I wouldn't get mad at her for giving me the permanent!!  My sister laughed and laughed.  She didn't "need" permanents because she had the natural wave in her hair!  She still has that wave.  Anyhow, you can find the kit exclusively at
 The next layout I have to share was made with another kit at Scrapable!  It is from the March Build a kit--another winner in my eyes!!  It's called Off the Beaten Path--and you can get it for free with a 10.00 purchase!  You won't be sorry!  It's fun!  This layout is of Noah and Jonah, and how Jonah helps her little brother out!  :) 

I used a kit from Aprilisa and also a template from her!  The kit is called Colors of Love and the template pack is called Picture Perfect #3.  The layout is about my granddaughers that live in the San Diego area!  They LOVE to visit the beach!  --no matter what or when.

and here is another layout---I used a great set of kits from Simply you simply me (the elements, the papers and the word art are all separate kits but called xoxo.  I love the cute elements in this kit!  I also used a template from Connie Prince.  Love her templates too!
 My last layout share for tonight is from a kit from Double Dutch Designs called Circle Crazy and a template from ME!  :)   This is Noah again--He's such a sweetie!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Keep a song in your heart and a prayer on your lips!  See ya next time!
