Do you know the way to San Jose or make that Santa Fe


I'm combining this layout with two very different challenges.

First at "SCRAP CHALLENGE YOURSELF" #117 - Life Balance.   Family adventures bring balance to me, my brother and I love to travel the same way, with lots of 'stop and smell the roses' time.   This year we took a 10 day trip exploring more of Route 66.  Last year it was all of Missouri to Oklahoma City, this year we started exploring again in Oklahoma City and got all the way to Winslow, AZ, before starting home again.   This layout is pictures from part of return home trip, with a play on the song do you know the way to San Jose song, changed to Santa Fe for us.    So family time and seeing new places is what I look forward to in my life to bring balance to the everyday times at home.


Next this layout is for the Challenge #668 - Stash Busting - Layers at  "LASTING MEMORIES"

I have several layers of papers and pictures and embellishments and title letters and then I also used 2 buttons and one brad on my layout.

LM #668 - Create a layout with lots and lots of layering and use brads, buttons or bling or even better all three if you can.

Happy Birthday Dylan

 This is our granddaughter Dylan in the center of this group of girls celebrating her 9th birthday with a sleepover with all her besties.

I am entering this layout at "LASTING MEMORIES"  for Challenge #667 - Stash Busting - Birthday theme.  I used 3 different patterned papers and use a tag with the #9 on it for my title.

Catching a Frog

 I'm taking a little break from scrapping road trip pictures and catching up on family pictures.   This is a picture of my Granddaughter on Easter weekend when she caught a little from in her backyard.   She was so concerned about it and was looking all over for a safe home to put it back into the environment.

I used the Scrappy Friends Challenges for this layout.    Using  "ROCHELLE SPEARS BLOG" sketch and then the Tic-Tac-Toe board at "SCRAP WITH STACY"

I used the middle column down, Banner, One Photo and Journal Card.  I also added a butterfly and some enamel dots.

Welcome to Utah


My daughter and family took a 10 day trip from home in Missouri to Utah for some great camping and time in nature.      I need to get busy scrapping some of the pictures they shared on FaceBook.

This sketch #655 at  "LASTING MEMORIES", the last one for August was just perfect for these welcome to Utah pictures of everyone.
