Both pages are the same colors... for some reason my scanner made
the colors different, operator error or technical difficulties?? Who knows!! ;0)

Here is the great sketch that I played with..

 I flipped it about a tad to work with my pics... put a fun sketch to play with!!

You should come and play with us at Let's Scrap... get your layout done and in the

Lil Bug....

LOAD #8 & #9

I was playing along with Two Chicks on facebook tonight..
it was for 'Make Something Monday Virtual Crop'. There is a bit
of a time difference to I got started later and finished wayyyy later. But I did get
one out of the 3 layouts done and it was fun!! Here is the list that they wanted us to 
use for the #1 sketch:

2 vertical 4x6 photos
4 horizontal 4x6 photos
journaling card
2 sheets of coordinating patterned paper
2 sheets of cardstock for base
stickers, die cuts or coordinating embellishments

So here is my take on it....

Here is the sketch that they wanted us to use... cute!!

Hopefully next Monday I will be able to play along a bit more.. ;0) 
Thanks for the fun girls!!!

Another Story Please Grandpa...


This is for a new blog called Use Your Word Challenge Blog .. 
how fun!!! The word for this Challenge was 'Story'. You had to use
it in either your title or journaling... so this was perfect for these pics of
Yummy and his Adorable Grandpa... although you don't see Grandpa, only
his hands.. ;0)

This is the sketch I played with by Sketch Savvy

Yep... another Yummy layout!!! When the California Poppies were in full bloom, there
was a mini field of them down the street. I couldn't wait to get lil Preston down there for
pics!!! Only one problem.. at that time he couldn't sit up by himself... so my thoughts of
him sitting in the middle of a Poppy field were gone!! But we adjusted!!
