Page Swap Layout

About every three months, several of us gals get together and do a page swap. There is usually a theme and we all bring "theme" food and make a day of it. Kathleen made this layout. What is so great is having pages in our albums that aren't necessarily our style but that we like just the same. Kathleen is very girly and I like what she does. This worked great with these pictures I had and I stamped the words "Cocoa Beach" myself.


This is David standing in front of our new Chevy Cruze Eco, which we love. It's also a picture of him with an 80 to 85 pound weight loss over the last 10 months. We both feel and look better!

Spring 2009

Daffodils are my favorite spring flower....I like my tulips and my hyacinths, but daffodils just do it for me. The daisies are actually ones bought at the grocery store and sitting on my kitchen island.


These are my iris' and asylum from 2004. Just getting them scrapbooked! Again, Basic Grey papers and embellishments.

And still more 81st birthday party layouts....

Again, Uncle Ronnie's birthday party and Basic Grey.

More 81st Birthday layouts...

Just more layouts from Uncle Ronnie's birthday party. Layout is from Basic Grey class I took at Scrapadoodle in Peoria.

Shimelle's Sketch of the Week

This is my take on the Sketch of the Week at It's pictures from my uncle Ronnie's 81st birthday party. There were a ton of people there with both family and friends. Even his daughter, Ronda, from out west flew in with her husband and surprised everyone. I hadn't seen her since she was in high school!

A movie day...

I'm keeping the car today and going to the movies. Looks like something I would like but David would hate sitting through, so I'll go it alone. Maybe some shopping after, but no canning of garden veggies today!

More graduation pictures...

This is the last of the graduation pictures....FINALLY! It's actually a page that was done in a class at Scrapadoodle. I sat it out on my sb table and grabbed a bunch of pictures from a packet I had and these just seemed to go. I managed to get every single graduation picture scrapbooked. I put all her other info inside the invitation, plus a thank-you card from Rachel for her gift.

More detail of the 2 pages...
