To remember God’s blessings through the years…

  • I tried…

    …to do a scrapjack and missed the deadline – by one day!!! I was so bummed. I think my world is too small if something this insignificant can spread such a cloud over my day. Then again, maybe it’s the weather – gray and wet with some lovely thunderstorms today. I keep having to turn…

  • Pearls, Curls, Girls

    This page was giving me such a headache until Rebecca’s ribbons arrived, and then I finally got inspiration to complete it. I love the daises! (I tolerate the accidental overcropping of the photos!)

  • What I made today…

    I was busy all day, enjoying the cozy indoors which were in such high contrast to the nastiness outside. I completed two full page spreads, and a pot of soup whose aroma has me salivating as I type this.I also made some stock to have in the freezer for the next time I want to…

  • Bridal Portraits

    Yesterday was productive, despite a cold coming on. I finished a full page spread that had been giving me grief for weeks. Finally got it the way I wanted it. It felt good to get it done and slide the page protector on! The left page uses a flip tab to fit a few more…

    Here’s my latest and most favorite page! I actually made this page the afternoon before we left on vacation – I had the time, and the inspiration and I HAD TO SCRAP. ๐Ÿ™‚ I used one of my favorite color schemes – tone on tone with this luscious green and that is enough to make…

  • The formals

    I made a huge flip-out page to showcase most of the formals that were taken after the ceremony. The black and white pages open in the middle to reveal a four page spread of all the family and couple shots. I like the detail of the epoxy corner stickers…

  • jumping outside my box

    With this page I totally went out of my comfort zone – I doodled – and I love it! After my success I promptly went to Joann’s and bought myself three more pens that could do this (my white gel pen was my only opaque pen – now I have gold, silver, and bronze –…

  • Untitled post 18

    I loved the song my dad and I danced to at the reception, and I love this page – it was fun to figure out how to incorporate a lot of text on a page with all the song lyrics. I distressed the edges of the photo and paper with my gold ink pad –…

Here they are…First, “The Little People” who were in (or closely related to) the wedding party. I loved having all of our little siblings and nieces and nephews in…
