03/31 Another perfect paper match!

My friend and her brother encountered an agressive manatee one afternoon. Naturally she took a few pictures to record the event and I turned them into a scrapbook page. Imagine that?!!!

Life is always exciting in FLA - Florida!

03/31 Spring is here!

I love the new colors in the Club Scrap Avante Garde and I anxious for the new Close to My Heart Summer Idea Book! My life is indeed filled with color! So my challenge to myself this week is to learn how to do "Digital Scrapbook" pages. ME! -the person who loves ribbons and embellishments and all of the cool papers. Hey - it is a challenge and my brain needs a workout! I doubt that I will ever replace digital scrapbooking because I love everything about this creative hobby, and have so many photos. But check out my work!

03/29/08 March Madness!!

Wow - I have completed more scrapbook layouts this month than I think I have completed in the last three years! This layout is my Valentine's Day gift from my husband. My friend Cherie and I went to the see Jersey Boys at the Tampa Bay Performing Arts Center! We even splurged on Valet parking - hey we deserve it!

03/27/08 Where has the time gone?!!!

As I attack my pictures with fervor and turn them into scrapbook pages for my children I wonder "Where did the time go?"! Here is another 'blast from the past' - Kevin in 1st grade! I had to scan his school photo and the pics my husband took on the first day. I am glad I am such a sentimental fool, otherwise I would not have one photo of my chidlren growing up.


03/27/08 Where is Addie???

Great question!!... I have been so busy - #1` - C.O.M.P.A.N.Y - our family and friends from the north! Why can't they visit in July?!

FCAT - can't the state of Florida schedule this test in July - oh yeah - no school! So basically March is a wash!! But to wallow away my time, I have been working on my scrapbooks. I will get these done by June!

Here is a cute layout for Robbie's baby book!

How about Easter 1990?

What about my 'sewing friends' from up north?

So if you think I have been sitting around eating "M & M's" - guess again!

Week #4 - Club Scrap Challenge - Bridges

My goal is to finish Robbie's scrapbook by June when we fly out to California! I just might make it! This challenge is great for me for two reasons:

#1- I am forced to start and finish the pages as they have a time limit!

#2 - I can use my Club Scrap paper and not feel like I have to wait until the paper has been retired before I can put it one of my personal scrapbooks. (I have CTMH scrapbooks I used for my demos)

Silly Huh?

Our trip to Chattanooga, Tenn.

Robbie and Liz's second day on their road trip to Califronia!

Day 3 - travelin' through Oklahoma!

The papers are from Club Scrap's February kit- Bridges. Perfect for the 'bridges' in my photos!

03/01 Life is Crazy!

How can "LIFE" be so crazy!!! I guess I got myself involved in too many projects this spring! So here is my example for the Cricut Seasonal Swap that I participated in and that was due this weekend! Hey - I finally scrapbooked the photos from the M & M World in Orlando from April 2007! OK- so It was only a few of the photos - that means more to come......

Liz - don't we look good?!!!!
