Childhood


Brilliant day.  Warm'ish, sunshine, and family.  My sister is here visiting for the holiday, so we decided to get cracking on the scrapbook I'm making for our mum.  Here is what almost 5 hours turned into on Thanksgiving before we ventured over to my hubby's parents for the feast.

Yes, 5 hours.  Not having scrapbook exercised for a bit, it took awhile to adjust my brain to an 11x8.5 layout.  But I really love how it turned out in the end!

All the stamps are Unity, from several different sets:

Grandma's Needlepoint
Explore today & every day
Chicken wire
Le Chic

Everything else is Stampin Up.

Off to get a walk in (while it's still fabulous) and work on some more pages, and explore some other blogging friends to see what they are up to!

It turned out so cute. I am always slow on layouts so five hours seems pretty quick:-)

NIce LO. Love old photos because they tell a story and remember with photos is like living again.

PS: Did you use the original photos for this one? I will share what I do as advice to you with respect. When talking about old photos I usually scan them and reprint for scrapbooking and save the originals as treasure. :)

This is beautiful and reminds me of the STACKS of old photos I have of family long gone.... Saw you on Friends with Flair (Unity)
I just found the comment you left last week on my blog. Eek, sorry I was not more prompt. I will try and shoot you an email after this holiday weekend, if it is not too late.

Your scrap page is wonderful!

Your layout is wonderful! I'm a slow scrapbooker, too. It took me all afternoon to do a page today.

Mixed Up Media Chix - Summertime Blog Hop!

I have a fun project to share today!  Very excited about this one.  I've been working on it for over a week and...well...it's still not completely done, but it's getting there!
I've done this for a super wonderful friend that is going through a bit of a rough time.  She needs encouragement, so I'm putting together a little art journal to let her know how special she is.
And while this is a special gift, it's also part of a really fun blog hop I'm participating in with the other Mixed Up Media Chix!   Follow along...You'll truly be inspired.
So, if you need to start at the beginning:
HOP START
Oh, guess what else is going on...
IT'S OFFICIALLY SUMMER.
IT'S MY ANNIVERSARY.
Anyway... Here are a few images of the pages in the journal.





Each page has a little journal page insert: 

This journal was made from lots of recycled stuff, including...wait for it....
Toilet Paper Rolls! (yeah, I know...totally cool, huh?)
Old Book Pages (including those from a h…

Big Birthday Celebration

Are you here having fun hopping along with 3GirlJAM in celebration of Julie's sister's big birthday year?  What a great little cyber party we're having!  (she's really a young thing, but she's having a great year)

Well, if not, you should be hopping along (I'll tell you why in a moment). There are some really wonderful birthday ideas from all of us on the design team...and including Julie's two girls, who are also having fun celebrating their aunt's birthday.

If you need to go back to the beginning, head over to the 3GirlJAM blog to get started.  Otherwise....


Here's my card in celebration her special year! I used blue crinkle ribbon from the newly released Red,White,Blue Bundle.It's such a nice shade of blue!  The white has bits of the red and blue in it (and I love the ribbon when it's like that)...and the red is also pretty awesome...like marachino cherries.  The little button in the center is from Pinque Peacock (love lady bugs!) and e…
