Early morning birthday card

Yesterday was Lucy’s birthday.  I thought I would make a card for her, and drop it off at the Island.  So, this morning I got all of my extras from my latest design team and made a card! I’m so happy with the results.  On the inside I used a Hero Art’s “happy birthday” stamp.  I hope it’s dry for tonight! I just have to say, I love, love, love Glossy Accents.  I put a thick coat all over that little sticker, popped it up on pop … [Read more...]

Club CK Love

You know, I’ve not been sharing my work much lately. I’m not quite sure why.  It’s not that I don’t like what I’m doing, I certainly do.  I think it’s just with all that is going on with home, and work that I just don’t get around to posting.  I need to stop that.  I think it might be hindering me from moving forward with a different path. So, last week I decided to post my LYB & Simple Scrapper design team entries to my Club Creating Keepsakes Gallery.  Wouldn’t you know it…  I was … [Read more...]

Operation Write Home

My besties and I got together and had our own little over night crop…  Instead of doing layouts, I decided to make cards for Operation Write Home.  Scrapbook Island is going to act as a collection point, and I thought, I can make cards!  So here you go…  What I am sending to the troops! … [Read more...]


Here we are at day 21, and Lain gives us Hometown as our prompt.  So, we finally found the cord for the slide projector, and we started looking at slides.  No order to things…  Then we found one of my mom’s favorite house.  John said I should do that picture.  So, we tried to scan the slide and yeah well, that didn’t work. So, for your viewing pleasure.  Ponytail Mohawk Fun. … [Read more...]

LOAD 16 - 20

First off, I have been a sucky commenter on the boards.  I wish I knew why.  I love looking at what everyone is doing, but I can’t easily do it on my phone, so…  I’ve been remiss. I finally finished my design team project on Saturday morning.  Thank goodness.  When I turned it in, I was told that now that she knows I can do it, she is going to start giving me harder things to work on.  Hmm.  Well, at least LOAD will be over by the time that … [Read more...]

LOAD 15 - Music of your life

OK, well, we all knew that I did R.E.M. as my hobby.  So I was going back and forth about music.  I could do all the songs I sang to Sean when he was an infant.  Nah.  Then I remembered that I could do my wedding day.  I love our DJ, I did then, I do now.  He did an excellent job with mostly what we didn’t want, not what we did want.  But when I got the call the day before the wedding saying he lost his notes…  Well, I must have gotten confused … [Read more...]

LOAD 14 - What?  I don’t like this prompt.

Dude-  I know this is “Past Perfect” but dang, the prompts are so close to each other, and honestly, I’m not one who stays in the past.  OK, in my head maybe, but not in my scrapbooking.  I like to think about today, and capturing this movement.  So, here is Sean, in all his band-aid glory after Girl took a pretty good swipe at him.  He kept those band-aids on a bit too long.  We found out he really does have my skin!  Ouch!   So, … [Read more...]

LOAD, 8 - 13

It’s been so busy!  Sean was sick, and I stayed home for 2 days.  I didn’t want to, but I did.  I’m still working on my design team project, and hopefully it will be finished this week.  Or it might be the death of me.  Yes, it was a challenge, but I’m not sure I needed a challenge this month. So, let’s start with day 8 of LOAD:  What do you miss? I miss holding Sean while he sleeps.  I remember this evening, he passed out so … [Read more...]

LOAD, Day 7 - No Santa?

Today was all about misconceptions.  What you believed when you were little, but didn’t pan out that way.  I IMMEDIATELY thought of this picture,  Marilyn and I sitting on Sants’s lap.  We look so happy, don’t we?  Ha. Anyway, I thought it was perfect.  I got to do my clustering.  Which I love.  I’m super happy with it, and I got to use Christmas papers, even better.  Not much love on Flilckr today, but hell.  I got lots … [Read more...]
