Enjoy Today

 My granddaughter is on vacation in NY with her Mom and Dad and grandparents on her Dads' side.    They got there mid day yesterday and already they are having adventures.   My daughter sent these pictures to there time to Great Chazy River close to their home in upstate NY.    Looks like jet lag from Missouri is not effecting her one bit with a plane ride that left at 6:30 a.m. here.

I was inspired to do my take on the double page sketch at  "STICK IT DOWN" .

Happiness is Homemade


The strawberries have started growing at our grandkids house and they are happy,  after the first big picking they were able to make a strawberry pie and some strawberry jelly.

I used the prompt at   "LASTING MEMORIES"   for this layout.

LM #550 - All About the Photos - Multi-Photo Layout

Hello, everyone! Happy Sunday to you! We are smack dab in the middle of the long holiday weekend here in the US. I hope if you are lucky enough to have a little extra time off that you can find some time to get scrappy!

Today we kick off a new theme and a new set of challenges, courtesy of DT member Lauren. It's going to be a month full of challenges that are "All About the Photos." Let's get started with the first challenge.

LM #550 -  All about the photos - Multi-photo - Create a layout using at least 3 photos.

I saw this picture of my Dad and his dog Precious last week when I was looking for trip pictures from 2007.   This picture was taken right after we got home from our road trip.    My brother and I had just
surprised Dad with this puppy 2 weeks before we took a road trip to Texas to visit my daughter.
They became best buddies and inseparable from the first moment Dad held her.   He slept with Dad under the covers for Precious entire life.    When I saw the picture I printed it because I knew I had to scrap it.

Today I used the June 2021 Remix challenge at  "SCRAP OUR STASH"  there was a scrap lift to use and you had to use polka dots on the layout.  I had it all put together except for title and embellishments and realized I had forgotten the polka dots so found some polka dot paper to use, did some more tearing and added it in two places on the layout.

Let's Go


I think my granddaughter could live on a bicycle.   She still uses her bike with training wheels some, but also has a bike she pedals and balances attached to the back of her Dads bike and they go on long rides and she has a bike without training wheels too, that she rides on.    She has goals to be a professional rider when she grows up and watches bike races on TV with her Dad and has her favorite cyclists.

I used the sketch challenge #226 at  "SKETCH N SCRAP" .

Fried Chicken


I'm making layouts from an old trip to Memphis and filling in my album.   I made this layout using the May sketch from "ROCHELLE SPEARS" and it was perfect for my two pictures from our fantastic fried chicken lunch at Gus's.   We were told we had to eat there during our trip and we weren't steered wrong, it was so good.   Best fried chicken ever.

Memphis City Park


I got another layout made today from our trip to Memphis back in 2012.   I love filling in old vacations with more layouts.   I get to scrap and revisit trips all at the same time.

I used the "SCRAP OUR STASH"  sketch challenge for May.    I fussy cut some flowers from some patterned paper and added them with pop dots to the corner of my layout.
