Family layout

I like this layout...a lot...because it used a lot of scraps of one of my favorite paper lines - Basic Grey's Bittersweet line, and because it's not a typical fall layout with oranges & other fall colors. I, however, did scraplift this one from someone (I'm sorry...I don't have a link to it...) almost exactly as their's was - well almost - I changed it to fit my one picture. Also, the picture is like the one we used on our Christmas photo cards this year - we don't get many of the three of us together, so it was a treat to scrap it. Love using pinks & browns for a family layout!!

Here's the Rules:

For Christmas morn', that is!!
1.) Don't get up before 7:00 AM (for our house, that is reasonable...).
2.) Don't open any presents until we all get down to the tree.
3.) Don't whine!!
This is pretty much the guidelines set before we go to bed on Christmas Eve. Thought I should list them, as one day, there will be no need for guidelines.
Merry Christmas to all & to all a good night!

"Warm" layout

A friend of mine requested that I update my blog. Yes, it's been a month since I have - actually over a month. Tis the season!! However, it is especially cold & windy today; it was rainy yesterday; & well, I wish it were summer already - so I wanted to post a layout of pictures from this past summer. It was a pretty good day that day - although, because my husband & I got in a argument, he did not go on this particular outing, and well, even though I wish he had - my daughter & I had a good time & did laugh a lot (this is the journaling "behind the journaling"!!) But, it was so warm that day, & the ice cream tasted so good at the Frog Follies. This was August, because the Follies are always held in August. Plus, I love the bold colors on this layout...it is so hard to scrap bold colors, but I think it works this time. Hmmmm, let me just stare at the pictures a while & see if I feel warmer...
