So Big

Rebecca loves to dress herself and I love to see what she come up with. Pink tutu, hot pink shirt, blue jacket, blue necklace, pink shoes. Don't forget the Ariel socks. She also has been doing this cheesy smile lately. Silly girl.

I'm the Birthday Girl

Digital scrapbook page I made of Nina on her birthday. I made the page from a sketch from PageMaps. They are having their 5 year anniversary and have a challenge running.

The paper and most elements are Grey Avenue by Simply Sweet Designs by Kim. The pink under paper and clip holding the heart are Joyful Girl by ComputerScrapbook.com and Valerie Foster. The stitches are Moulin Rouge stitching. The flower is a brush by Design House Digital and Karla Dudley from their 2010 Fall Blog Hop. The tape is Happy Tape Elements by Design House Digital and Celeste Knight.

The View

Gorgeous view.

Then you turn around the other way and see this. I'm grateful to have a temple nearby. I love going to the temple. I don't love leaving my lights on while I'm there and having a dead battery when I get out. But it was so good to go again.

Grandpa's Funeral

While in Texas I did some scrapping with my mother. She wanted to work on this book she started 10 years earlier from her father's funeral. It has pictures, the program, and cards from people that she received. We were able to finish it up. The first picture is all their grandchildren taken from the open house at my grandparent's house just after my grandpa's funeral. I'm in the back holding a baby and the short one, not wearing purple.

Life's a Beach

Working on more scrapbook pages. This one I did for Scrapbooker's Anonymous' May Challenge which is to use your stamps. I had to make a patterned paper with stamps and 3 embellishments. The puprle paper I stamped and then the 3 embellies are the tag and two of the bubble stickers (one says explore journey, and the other is the pink and purple flower).

The title and matching beach embellies are by JoLee's boutique, the paper is Colorbok and the left bubble sticker is too. Stamps are Unity, ink is Staz-on, cardstock is DCWV, and ribbon is Making Memories.

Tweet Tweet!

I made this card for Unity's challenge which was to use a bird.
Stamps are Unity, Ink is Staz-on, ribbon is RibbonFX, flower gems are Hero Arts, cardstock is DCWV.

Some things never change...

like how much you mean to me

I did this card for a couple of challenges. The first is the Unity KOTM challenge. Inside I stamped the sentiment from the same KOTM which is stated above. I took a picture, but it turned out blurry.

I also used flower soft on it to give it texture to use for the ATU challenge #30 for this week "Get Felt Up". (yeah that's right :)

Also, I used the scraps from a scrapbook LO I made this week and used a stamp on it, so I can use it for Scrapbooker's Anonymous' card challenge.

Stamps are Unity, purple flowersoft on flower, ribbon is Making Memories, Ink is Staz-on, Paper is Colorbok, cardstock is DCWV.

Steve and I had a mini trip just the two of us while in Texas. We went to the Snake Farm and Animal World in New Braunfels.

Can you guess how many snakes there are in this picture?
