You Are My Best Friend


Elle has three dogs in her family and she takes turns treating them as her #1 friend, lately it has been Malcolm that is always by her.   The picture on left was one day she had a stomach bug and Malcolm stayed right by her while she spent the day resting on the couch.   The other picture was after Malcolm had stayed at another house while they were busy doing some work on the house and it was easier without the dogs around, so Malcolm got a lot of hugs when he came home that evening.

I used the April 15th sketch challenge at  "SCRAP OUR STASH"  along with using the sketch  you had to be sure and use an arrow as an embellishment, I added 3 gold puffy sticker arrows.

April Showers Bring May Flowers


April Showers bring May Flowers and also beautiful flowering trees.    I was so happy to see we have both a Redbud and Dogwood and also a flower Cherry tree (not in picture) in the front yard of our new home and also a large redbud on the side yard and one in back yard and several in the woods behind us.   I just love this time of year when the trees are at their peak.

I used Sketch #223 at  "SKETCH N SCRAP"  for this layout.

Loving Spring


This was such a simple layout to make but I'm really happy with it.  This is my take on the single page sketch for April at  "STICK IT DOWN"

Welcome to Paradise


Our son and family took a Spring Break vacation to Mexico and had so much fun and got some awesome family pictu   "SOUL SCRAPPPERS"    Below is the layout I scrap lifted.

Welcome Home


I'm finally getting around to making a layout about our new home here in Columbia.   We are so happy here.   We both fell in love with the house just seeing the pictures online when it was listed and then we saw it in person and decided to not look at anything else this was the house for us.   We love it.

I'm using this layout to enter in the April Mood Board Challenge at  "SOUL SCRAPPERS"   I was inspired by the colors on the board  including all the black in the pictures and the square that had the rainbows also the square with the door that goes with our front door in the picture.

Easter Egg Hunt


I just finished this double Easter page of my granddaughter.   I got to be with her this year for Easter, last year was Covid, the year before I was out of town, but this year we live in the same town so I'm enjoying more of these special moments.

I'm entering this at    "LASTING MEMORIES"    Challenge #542 is a word play challenge using the word 

EASTER   I have  E=Easter in my title and an Easter theme,  A=Alphas, S=Stickers  T=Tag & the color Teal,  E=Eggs on my paper and the word Eggs,  R=Recollections, all the Papers on my pages are from the Recollections stack called Happy Spring.

LM #542 - Word Play Challenge - EASTER

 Hello, everyone! Happy Easter to each and every one of you! We are so happy that you have stopped by today. It's the start of a new month and we have a lot of fun challenges planned out for you!

All of our challenges this month will have something to do with the month of April and things that happen during the month, so let's get started with the first challenge>

 LM #542 -  Word Play Challenge - EASTER - Since today is Easter Sunday - use a scrappy item, theme, or technique for every letter in the word "EASTER". Your layout does not have to be Easter-related - it can be about anything. And since there are 2 "E"s you will need to include 2 different "E" items. Please let us know what items you used for each letter.

New Lawn


    I made this simple but fun layout today for the newest  "LASTING MEMORIES"  Challenge #543 to use a 4x4 photo.   The reason behind the challenge is that April is the 4th month.   Well I doubled up on 4x4 size because my birthday is April 4th.
