ABC's


Here is the latest layout I did for the alphabet scrapbook I am making for my grandson. I'm making the layouts in no particular order!
I created this lo as a part of the red, white and blue challenge at SNS. This lo for the letter 'F'. I used red acrylic paint to create a frame and to make a photo mat for journaling.
The journaling says:
"Oh little Turner, how you keep us smiling with all of your funny faces...all of them so sweet!"
I thought that once it's finished it would be a fun book to read to him all about him!!!

Updates


I am trying, once again for a DT placement on Savvynsassy so I thought I would update my bog. One thing that I find though is that not too many people visit here very often so I will try to generate some more traffic!
Thank you to those who drop by and leave their comments! It is very much appreciated!
I asked my dh if he could design me a logo for my webcast and in a matter of hours it was done and I love it!!!...although the color isn't exactly the true green of the logo on paper.

Style Stone Pendant - Jewellery or Scrapbook??







I love this pendant I made tonight using rubber stamps, ink, embosing powder and style stones. At first it looks like an ordinary necklace but when you open it up it's a mini scrapbook! The pics are those index ones that are 1 x 3/4 inches!! TFL!
I was so excited to have one of my layout be chosen last week as "Layout of the Week" at Scrap Love!!
Check out their blog!!

I did a photo shoot with my daughter and her baby on Saturday.It was such a nice day and the lighting was just perfect but every time I would try to get a good shot my camera battery would need replacement. Finally I took my dh's camera and I think I got some pretty good shots!

My ***New*** Scrapbook Podcast!


Hi everyone! I am so excited that I've created a new scrap booking podcast where I share some of my ideas and techniques.
Please check out my first episode where I demonstrate how to make this butterfly card using dry embossing and chalking techniques.
I am aware that I need better lighting and more close ups so I will try to improve the quality of the program as I go. Until then, I am taking joy in the journey!!!
Please click here to check it out and I will continue to add new links as I create more episodes!

Our 35th Anniversary

We just returned from a wonderful vacation in Banff, Alberta.
Our 3 children treated us to a stay at the luxurious Rimrock Resort and it was a real treat. We went for a gourmet dinner in the hotel where the dining room overlooked the spectacular mountain view and the next day we headed across the street to soak in the Banff Hot Springs.
