I'm participating in a blog train today!  It is with one my Creative teams, Luv Ewe (isn't that just the cutest name ever?) She has her store at Funkyplayground, and has some amazing kits!!  Her newest kit is Endless Love, which is the kit we've all used for our fun brag book pages that we are giving you today.

Here is a preview of the kit to begin with, and a preview of all the things you can get if you hit all the participating blogs.

I'm the end of the train!  You should have come from Keesha's blog!  Here is where you can download  my FREEBIE:

If you missed any of the pieces, you can find the full list at
Have fun!!  May God Bless you!

Hope you have a great day!

Hi again!  I have a few things to share with you today.  I've been busy again creating some layouts for my family.  I've really enjoyed working with some of the older family photos this past month too.  That is something I've wanted to do for quite some time!  One of the layouts I did with the older photos is this one: 

These photos are back form 1952. The first photo is my husband and his little brother Jim, and the other photo is of his older brother Lewis.  It's so fun to use all the photos from when they the boys were small. 

For the next layout I used the cute Little Circus kit from Snap Wings found here:  and a JB STUDIO template.  This is for the Random Challenge that starts May 21st!  I hope you join me.  You can find it here:
Thanks so much for stopping by!  I love visitors.  I'm going to be participating in a blog hop this weekend, so come on back and visit!  Bless you!

I had another busy week.  National Scrapbook Day was great!  Had so much fun going from forum to forum and collecting a lot of goodies!  Thanks to all the designers that so unselfishly provided so much enjoyment to all of us!!  I appreciate you all!
I'm hosting the Random Challenge at Digitalscrapcafe this coming week.  I used such a great kit--a collab from the designers there!  It was called Joy in the Garden (linked to store) 
I think I'm a collab girl!  I enjoy working with them every time.  They are filled up with such great embellishments, and so much fun to play with!  Anyhow, I did this layout about the California poppies that are in my back yard.  They cover the desert floor in the spring, and are just so beautiful!!
 You can check out the challenge here:  random challenge.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you come and try the challenge.  God bless you!

Here Amy and Scott go again!  They are packing up for the 7th time in the 9 years of their marriage!  This time they are moving to the suburbs of Kansas City, Kansas.  Scott's new job will be as one of the three pastors at an up and coming church in Olathe, Kansas.  Amy is busily packing the boxes, but she's going to have to watch out, because Jacob likes to crawl IN the box and play with the things Amy is trying to pack!  Silly Jacob. 
The first layout I have to share today is a layout of Jonah out on a hike with his daddy!  I used Day at the Zoo kit from Dutsji Designs for this layout.  You can find the kit here: Digital Scrap Cafe.

 The next layout I have to share today is also of the Bird Boys!  This time, it is ALL the Bird Boys.  In Tennessee by where they live, there is a lake that has started flooding.  They visited lately, and of course, a lake is just what the boys needed as an excuse to get wet!  The funny part is, DADDY got in there with them!  Looks like they had a great time together.  Making memories.
I used Aprilisa's kit Dad's the Man for this layout of my grandsons and their daddy standing in the overflow at the lake in Tennessee.  You can also find this kit at Digital Scrap Cafe.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you stop by again soon.  God Bless you.

Here I am!  Ready to blog.  I've been pretty busy, and I love it!  It's been keeping my mind off my daughters family that lives in Tennessee.  They've had some pretty bad weather there over the past week or so, and I'm trying not to worry!  I know God is in control, I just like to hear that my kids and grandchildren are safe.  Praise be to God, they ARE safe! 

I have a few layouts to share this evening.  The first one is a remembrance of my maternal grandmother--Grandma Pettibone.  She died when I was about 10 years old, but I still remember all the fun I had with her.  She taught me how to play poker when I was 3 or 4 years old.  She thought she was teaching me rummy!  My mother about had a heart attack when she saw her little kid playing poker with her mom! 
The first place I remember my grandmother living was in a fancy house.  I didn't realize she lived in "the maids quarters."  She wasn't the maid--she just rented the little efficiency apartment from the owners of the house!  I think she was the happiest when she lived there.  Anyhow, here is my layout--it talks about picking strawberries with Grandma.
I used a great kit from Snap Wings called Angels Around.  You can find it here:

Another layout I'd like to share is of my little grandson.  He's such a cutie, and growing so big!!  He's five now ya know!  :)  I used a kit called Funshine from Spinky Dink designs found here:

Isn't he just the cutest?  I'm hoping that someday, long after I'm in Jesus' arms, that this little guy, and the rest of my grandchildren will have fond memories of me like I do of my grandmother.  It's harder these days to have these close relationships, as families are spread around the country!  My grandma lived a bit closer to us!  I am thankful for that wonderful relationship I had with my grandma.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you'll stop by again sometime soon!  May God Bless you!
