Jingle Bells

Yep it's Christmas in July - I made this page for a challenge. It is not my best work - but I accept it for what it is. It was amazingly hard to "get into" Christmas when it is in the upper 90's with 90%humidity. I even tried listening to the wonderful Christmas music that Noel Mignon has playing on her blog - just didn't work. Ok enough of that here is the page I made.

A Great Day

Yesterday was a great day - why - well here is why...

I got to spend the entire day with my Grandkids - they are so cute!
My Grandaughter is getting ready to start school this year and she is so very excited about it. I was fortunate enough to spoil them a little too - new School backpacks, some supplies, and a few new outfits each. We had a great time shopping, they modeled their new clothes for me, we went to Burger King for lunch, and then went swimming for awhile.

Yep it was a great day and I got some great pictures too (scrapbook worthy).
So watch for future scrap layouts featuring these two adorable little ones.

Whatta Weekend

It has been a really hard weekend for me, work has been off the hook busy. You can check out the link if you want to know more about our scallop harvesting season.
Ok so that has kept me really busy, and then of course this is CHA weekend. So many new things to look at (and drool over) I have been surfing the net quite a bit for the new treasures being introduced. Then there is Fiskateers virtual crop - crammed full of challenges and good times - I had to work all weekend - but I did manage to get a few challenges done. I have had a couple other events happen this weekend that I am NOT going to disscuss on here - but these have made me re-examine my life quite a bit. It is not always easy to let things go - even when you know it is the best thing to do. But sadly I am going to try to close this chapter of my life and start a couple new ones. So here is to NEW Beginnings!!!

The Amazing Spiderman

My adorable little grandson LOVES Spiderman, he dressed up as Spiderman for Halloween last year and we took some awesome "posed" shots of him playing the role. I had an idea for a LO using this comic strip paper, I had a hard time finding the paper at first - but a good friend sent it to me. I have had the pictures printed for months - I just needed to do the LO. Well a challenge came up in Treasured Scrapbooking to make silhouettes of your pictures on a scrap page - so I knew what I had to do. It worked so well - these photos were just perfect for this page - don't you think??

For Pinky

My great friend Pinky posted a challenge on her Blog and I did this page for it. The Challenge said to make a tropical/flowery page. I did this at work yesterday. I had only one tote full of supplies and did not prepare ahead - so I dug through my tote stash and found this flowery paper - but it was on BLACK. So I hand cut all of the flowers off the paper - leaving a thin line of black as an outline and layered onto of the yellow paper - Whallah - tropical!!!

I am going to share the LO that I entered into the contest - we had to use circles I did my best. Ok I have to get ready for work - running late now - playing too much on here. Thanks for looking

Thank you Friend

A very dear friend of mine sent me this Blogger template - I LOVE IT!! I do seriously have a Flamingo Fetish and this is perfect for a Floridagirl - don't you think?? Well this has inspired me to do some revamping with my blog - I know I have said it before - and I really want to. But here is the thing - I am intimidated by blogger - I never used to be intimidated by computer things - I don't know why this one gets to me. But I have been assured that in the last 4-5 months blogger has become easier to navigate, to add pictures and slideshows, etc. So I am going to work on this - I am!! Only one other problem - for some reason my work computer does not like blogger sites - so I will have to do all of this from home - which limits my time - ahhh. So be patient with me friends and watch for some more changes.
