Our first day in Hawaii

Destination: Paradise

We are off on our vacation to Hawaii

A Dynamic Duo

Maggie has been having a ton of fun jumping with Roy at her lessons. Dawn and Britney pulled out the camera a couple weeks ago and got some shots of them in action. Roy alledgedly has arthritis but he sure does not look like it as he goes over those risers.

Graduation and Wedding cards

We have a couple of friends graduating from high school soon and my cousin's daughter is getting married in a few weeks, so I needed to make some cards. Robyn at The Pink Stamper featured cute graduation cards last week, so I adapted her cards to my creations.

Happy Birthday

It is hubby's birthday tomorrow. Here is a card I put together using "Just Because" cards and cuttlebug embossing folders.

April 12 of 12

Having fun documenting the 12th day of each month with 12 photos!

12 of 12

Last year I did Project 365, taking a picture a day for 365 days. It was a cool project but pretty time intense. I liked documenting what I did throughout the year, however. As the year progressed, I wondered what I could do for this year. Then I came upon a website promoting "12 of 12". Take 12 photos on the 12th day of the month for 12 months. Then document that. Very doable....
I am just learning how to do digi LO's, so I thought it would be fun to do my 12 of 12 LO's digitally. Granted, it takes me way too much time to complete one versus a paper LO but it is fun learning something new.

I have been picking up freebie papers, elements and templates and trying to learn as I go. It is a work in progress but the results are not too bad....


Welcome Baby Jack

This LO completes our 2001 family album!!!

It welcomes my new nephew, Jack, to our crazy family. Can't believe he is now 9. Hardly a baby any more but still the baby of the family!

Spring Break

This is a digi LO of our spring break trip to Hawaii. I am going to put this LO in our family album. The LO has a smattering of fun photos from our trip. I will do a dedicated Hawaii album with lots more pictures.

Blue Goose

I had fun creating this LO for Sketches! {by tamara} for National Scrapbooking Day! I followed a sketch she sent me ahead of time and played along! I made the train with my gypsy and cricut. We love trains!

Birds of a Feather

This a hybird LO. I took these photos of the bird's nest and eggs and put them in a digi LO. Added some paper embellies and brads to finish it off.

Snow Fun

We took the kids sledding to Mt. Ashland. I think they had fun...but I remember that they really enjoyed the hot chocolate we had waiting for them in the car when we were done!

Joy---Christmas 2001

I am almost done with the 2001 family album! Only a couple more LO's to go....

I finished this LO's quickly using a page kit I had on hand from Mosaic Moments. I really like the kits that Tami Potter designs. So simple but you can embellish them if you want to.

I completed this LO following a sketch for a challenge group I am in on the Cricut message board. I had the photos cut out last night but was not sure how I was going to embellish the page until I got Sketches! {by tamara}'s recipe challenge in my inbox this morning---use yellow, alphabet and a mask as the recipe. So I made a mask for "Random" and used random alphabet fonts for those letters. I also made my own background paper with script stamp on the dark blue paper using yellow ink. Yellow ribbon was also used and there is a yellow memo.

Happy Birthday Roy!!!

Roy turned 13 on March 24. Maggie made him horse treats, full of molasses, oats, grains and topped with peppermints. He loved his birthday treats. Roy kept putting his head down, trying to get into the container to get more!!!
