Any Occassion Card


I just made this card using the sketch #195 at   "SKETCH N SCRAP" .    I didn't add any sentiment, I thought I would just put it in my card stash for some reason I need a card to send out.

Star Wars Metal Art


I had four pictures of my grandson putting together this metal Star Wars piece on a rainy weekend.

So it was perfect for the single page sketch at  "STICK IT DOWN".

Diamond Art


This was the first weekend of summer break after school was out but it was all rainy and cool for
Texas weather so the kids stayed in and did crafts.    Mylan was doing diamond art.   I've always
wondered what it would be like.   I think I might have to try it too.

I used the sketch #227 at   "SKETCH N SCRAP"    for this layout.

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.
