Autumn Memories

Not much to say today, just trying to get some of my scrap things organized and trying to figure out what I’m going to make for the DigitalArts-Cafe Blog Party for December 1st – December 7th. In the meantime, I made a Quick Page using some commerical use items from Latte’ Dah.  You can check out some of her designs at skrappin digi kreations, Busy Scrappin‘, Sugar Mama Scraps, candy cane creations or at her blog

Here are a couple of layouts I made using the qp with my grandson in them.

My latest lo made from “Old Schooldays” by Attic Treasures

This is my latest lo that I made using Attic Treasures Old Schooldays kit.  I love all the elements in this kit and the papers.  I’m not very good at making these lo’s yet but was satisfied with this one.  I made my first frame ever, on Photo Shop 7.0 that my son gave me, for this lo from Anneli’s chalk board that was in her Old Schooldays kit. I hope this was acceptable.

My Genealogy Book

I wanted this blog as a diary for my scrapbooking but am so scatter brained that I can’t remember to post everything like I wanted to. Maybe one day I will get caught up. I still have more blinkies that I’ve collected to put on here and am still not happy with my site. I start working on it and then remember something else I was suppose to do or get disgusted because I can’t do something right so I go to something else.

I have finally got done the first three pages of my genealogy book that I have been wanting to do for so long. I’m just not good at putting these layouts together and want them to be something that I am absolutely happy with before I use them in my book. So these three pages I am very happy with. I will share two of them here but one of them has to much personal info on it so I choose not to download it on my blog. But I think it turned out great.

This is the first page of my Dad’s tribute. It was done with a Scrapbook kit called “My Dad” by Ashalee Wall of Ashaleeandsweet.com.

This is the second page of Dad’s tribute. It was done by the same Scrapbook kit “My Dad” by Ashalee Wall of Ashaleeandsweet.com but I added a frame, ribbon and flowers from the DAC Collab Team and staples by Lynn Griffin.

Me in the yellow with black and white polka dot dress


This page was done for the July Book Of Me Challenge at DSO. I done this page using a Scrapbook kit from Munchin Scraps Spring Polka Dots and used bumble bees from Carolina Girl Scrap Creations Backyard Playground Elements. The fonts I used are Earwig Factory and Boopee. This is a photo of me when I was three years old wearing my sisters walking dolls dress. The dress was yellow with black and white polka dots.

My Blog Header

Last night I played around and made my blog header from Digital Arts Café collaboration kit freebie “No Milk No Sugar” by designers Phillsboo, Aliya, Adelina and Brooklyn.

I love the colors and embellishments.

Easter Layout


This is a layout I done using Creative Victorian Designs Easter Lovely background and Inherit Blessings frame, Boolands Granddad Overlay, Laura’s DigiWorld Background, Carena’s wordart. The photo is of my mom, sister and myself on Easter Sunday in 1969. I was five years old and just got my first pair of pantyhose and my first itty bitty heels. lol
