Gram and Me

My friend Bev Code, had a sketch and used almost the identical papers for layout. I loved it so much that I "copycatted" 
These papers and stickers from Echo Park, For the Record, are gorgeous. If you are interested in getting these papers and stickers, you can find it all here:

This is a photo of my gram and me when I was about 6 months old.  There really is no story to go with my photo, other than that My gram and I were best friends. I loved her as if she was my mom. We talked on the phone every single day a couple times per day until she died. I miss her more than anything.

Puppy Love layout using Echo Park paper

Sharing another layout. :) I'm calling it Puppy Love. Yes that is me up in the right hand corner holding my dog as she sleeps. She is spoiled like that, and has me well trained. lol   I don't know what's with my droopy sad face???

I used Echo Park paper for everything on this layout, even where the ribbon strings through, I threaded the paper through instead of ribbon. This is the For The Record line. The flower sticker on the right and the border sticker on the left are from this paper pack as well. Here is the link for that store:
Thanks for taking a peak. :)

Explore Nature scrapbook page

I thought it would be fun to do  Scrapbook page this time.  I used Mitzi Sato-Wiuff's digi stamp image for this nature page.  I thought it was perfect with her little snail.  I can't wait for summer to go camping again.  Nothing better than to be out in the middle of the woods with a camper, a campfire, and family.

Happy New Year- Giveaway Winner Announcement!

Happy New Year Friends!

 I hope you all had a great New years Eve.  I spent my night with my husband and two sons.  We played Apples to Apples, Win Lose Or Draw, ate some goodies, and watched a movie together.  Then we went downtown to watch the fireworks go off, and they were beautiful.  Amazing how they can make little smiley faces, and hearts.  My favorite are the ones that sizzle.  So pretty.  There was a bird that didn't think so, boy was he mad, he was louder than the fireworks.  lol  Must have been too close to his nest.

Okay, so anywhere, where was I?  oh yes, I was going to announce the New Year Winner of my little stamp set giveaway.  :)
I used random number generator, and the winner is #3 Chriss Real that's You!  Girl, your New Year is off to a good start.  :)  Please email me and I will get these out to you on Friday.

Would love to hear how everyone spent their New Year.
