You Rock 15

It is had for me to believe that my grandson Cole is halfway through his teen years at the ripe ol' age of 15.  Cole is fun, friendly, and has weathered some storms in his life with grace, maturity and wisdom. My son calls him the backbone of the family. I haven't seen him in 19 months due to Covid-19 but am looking forward to making up for lost time this summer.

I am enjoying being challenged this month as a guest design team member over at Lasting Memories. This week's challenge was to use a 4x4 photo on our page. This picture that I sniped from my son's IG feed was perfect.

I am also entering this layout in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Happy Birthday Challenge.

Thanks for stopping by my blog....have a wonderful week.

Lasting Memories Guest Design Team Week #1

Good morning and Happy Easter!! I am so excited to be one of April's Guest Designers at Lasting Memories. I really had fun creating this layout of my great-niece and her dog Badger. I am creating a whole memorial album for Reyna and her family as a surprise. They do not read my blog so I am safe sharing it here.

The Lasting Memories challenge this week is a word play challenge. I had to create a layout using an item that begins with each letter in the word EASTER. Here is my entry......

E - enamel hearts (on the kraft envelope)
A - arrow
S - stickers
T - tag
E - envelope
R - red

I loved this Page Map Sketch so I somewhat loosely based my page on it:

I kept the title and tag placement along with the layout of the background papers. I substituted one photo for the 4 smaller ones shown in the sketch. That is what I love about using sketches....they are great to use as a jumping off point or to follow closely. As the maker of the layout it is totally up to me.

Well that is all for now. Thanks for checking out my blog. I will be back next Sunday to share another Lasting Memories challenge.

A friend of mine recently became a grandma for the first time so I made this card to celebrate. I used this perfect sketch from Sketch-n-Scrap:

That is it for to get my second Covid-19 vaccine. Hopefully like will start to return to a bit more normal soon. I really miss seeing family and friends.

Sending Grande Sized Love

I used this fun sketch from Sketch-n-Scrap for the above card:

I love making coffee themed cards and am working on building my stash of general all purpose cards.

That is it for now....I am feeling like hitting the sheets early tonight. I will be back tomorrow with another card to share.

Loyal Bubba

Another page to share from the album I am working on for my niece of their dog who recently crossed the rainbow bridge. Luckily she does not read my blog so I can post it here. I used this Scrappy Friend sketch by Rochelle Spears and am entering it in her challenge.

I am also entering it in Stacey's Scrappy Friends Challenge which was this Tic-Tac-Toe board:

I went straight down the right hand row with an arrow, enamel dots and stickers.

The last challenge I am entering this in is
I embossed the paw prints on the cardstock in the upper right of the adorable doggie photo.

That's it for tonight....I will be back tomorrow to share another page from this album.
