Everyone is golfing

Jason bought Kai his first set of golf clubs last week.   About the same age that Jason got his first set.

So with everyone in town for the weekend we had 4 generations going to the driving range.

Double layout today

When the kids were in Florida for Thanksgiving, they did a lot of different things including going on a Zip Line in Melbourne, FL.

The top layout is for the Sketches in Thyme sketch #72 in March and since I had more pictures I made the 2nd layout to go with it using some of the same papers.

Everything is from My Minds Eye - Lime Twist collection.

It's been a busy day !!!!    I went shopping for some scrappy stuff, only bought one piece of  12x12 stickers of Authentique genuine.   Had a 30% coupon of Authentique.

Then went to Lowe's and bought a new light fixture for the bathroom downstairs.   The one they had there was ugly to say the least.   Plus we are going to repaint the room, so this was the time to do it.

We have had a week full of rain.    2 weeks ago we got some new landscaping and an irrigation system put in.   We decided we were to old to move hoses all around the yard to water it this summer.

But since then we have had close to 3" of rain.  

But today, it actually got sunny so I went out trimmed some more bushes and then got more grass seed, in the low spots and places the landscapers had filled in were so wet I thought seed was washing away, so a spread new seed all over those places and then a little more overseed over the entire yard.

So I'm beat now.   It's getting really black outside, so the rains will start again.   Suppose to rain tomorrow also and then finally clear for the weekend.    Hope all my seeding takes root and then before long it will be major mowing time.

Todays layout

I used the #3 sketch from Let's Get Sketchy.    Everything else I had found sketch wise new for the month I think I had already used.    I actually found the picture just trying to find something to fill into a space for this time frame in Jason's album.

And here is the layout

Cabo was so Beautiful

I spent 2 days rearranging all my scrapbook albums.  Of course I have a separate album for Jason and Susan's wedding in Cabo, but decided to make a separate album of all the other pictures from the great vacation part of the trip.   I already had some made but not in an album by themselves but here is the latest one I just made yesterday.

I used Cosmo Cricket papers from the Salt Air collection,  I had used these on another layout a couple of weeks ago and didn't like the outcome at all, but they really worked much better on this layout.

Authentique March layout sketch

This was a great sketch to work on and I used papers from my Authentique Blissful collection.

I absolutely love these colors in this collection and the quality of the paper is unsurpassed.

another layout from Jason's 21st birthday

I used Rochelle Spears sketch for March

Leslie's 18th birthday

A scrapping day

I matched up a bunch of sketches and pictures last night with the idea of making lots of layouts today but so far have just managed this one.    But I'm now ready to make another one.

This is a sketch by Rochelle Spears on the paper secrets blog.    I love the sketch and its the first time I've torn the edges of coordination card stock and I really like the look of it.

This is from Jason's 21st birthday, only 14 years ago.  Now on to doing another layout from more pictures from his birthday.
