Love, Love, Love You

It is hard to believe that these pictures were taken nearly 15 years ago.  The baby in the photos is the boy that made me a grandma....Jacob who will be 15 in about a month.  What a sweet baby and little boy he was and what an awesome young man he is now becoming.  I though it was about time that these sweet pictures were scrapped.  I used this great sketch from Sketch N Scrap:

All the products on this page (with the exception of the Dream Big cloud) are from my very favorite company Bella Blvd.  I love how easy it is to mix and match their collections.

I have set a goal to create something every night this week.  Two nights down and 3 more to go.  I hope I can do it. If I do, I will be back tomorrow night to share.


Invasion of the Man Cave

My husband is spoiled to put it mildly. He has a man cave all to himself fully equipped with a sound system, and gaming consoles and fo course all the latest and greatest games.  And he doesn't have to share since we are empty nesters and I am NOT into gaming....lol. However this summer we had my 10 year old and 14 year old grandsons visit for 10 days and if they could they would have taken up permanent residence in the man cave.  In reality, Dave did not mind sharing at all with them but he always let them think he was aggravated.  Of course they hardly noticed....look at their faces in the picture for proof of that.  LOL We had a great time with them and are looking forward to the next time they come to visit.

I used the awesome Stuck Sketches July 1 sketch and am entering this page in their challenge.

Well that is about it for now.  I hope to back tomorrow to share another page....this one has baby pictures on it.

Be Happy

We had a lovely day together with my granddaughters while we were in Chicago in May.  We went to Lincoln Park Zoo and just had fun being together.  One of my favorite animals in the zoo are the flamingos and the girls loved them too. I decided to make this page so we could all remember the day.  I used this awesome sketch from Stuck? Sketches:

I am also entering this page in the July Anything Goes Challenge at Clique Kits.

Well that is it for my weekend. Another five days of work but I have some evening projects planned this week if I am not too tired.  Do you scrap during the week?


Happy Holidays...Christmas in July #10

I am still knocking out some Christmas in July cards. I actually have made about 15....this is the tenth one I have shared here.  For this card I used this sketch from Sketch N Scrap:

I have several more posts to write tonight as I have been a productive gal this weekend.  Thanks for checking out my creations.



My husband and I work together and we have a co-worker who is undergoing cancer treatment and having a rather rough time of it.  I have been sending him cards on a regular basis to encourage him and this is another that I made over this weekend.  I am entering it in the Simon Says Stamp Monday Nautical/By the Sea Challenge.

Thanks for stopping by my blog tonight.

Celebrate Your Day

I love the current pineapple trend.  They are one of my favorite fruits. I remember being in Hawaii and driving near the Dole pineapple plant and how the air smelled of pineapple....what a wonderful aroma! I made this card for a dear friend who is having a birthday next month and I know she loves pineapples as much as I do. I used this sketch od Corri Garza's for Paper Issues:

I am entering this card in Cupcake Inspirations current challenge #367 -- Tropical

Isn't that the most awesome inspiration picture?? I was inspired by the pineapple and the yellow and green.

Well that is it for today....I was very busy today so I will have loads of blogging to do tomorrow so don't forget to stop back and check my posts. I hope your weekend is all you want/need it to be.

Christmas in July #9

At this rate I am going to have to keep making Christmas cards in August, September and October to have my 60-70 cards made that I plan to send out.  But it really does not matter because I am process oriented and I am LOVING the process of making my cards this year.  This card uses one of my brand new Pure Innocence Stamps from My Favorite Things.  I am just learning how to color with my Copics and I am pleased with the way this image turned out. This little girl really looks like my granddaughter Izzy which is one reason I love these stamps so much. I used this sketch from

I am also entering this card in the Mod Squad Get Krafty Challenge. The background paper is from My Mind's Eye Kraftday Funday collection and the panel that my image is on is also kraft.  Red paired with kraft is one of my favorite color combinations.

Well it's finally the weekend and I made a bunch of cards tonight that I will be blogging about over the weekend.  Tomorrow I hope to work on a couple of layouts....including one double pager.  Catch ya'll later....Happy Friday!!
