This is just a funny one of Alex that I came up with to scrap some pictures of him at Hanauma Bay. I think he's so cute when he makes faces, don't you?

Women in my life

This is a 2 page layout that I just finished for a contest at my local scrapbook store. It became something that I really wanted to be proud of because it has my mom and grandmother on both pictures. I'm happy with the results. I hope you like it, mom...I love you. :)

3 more from Hawaii!!

I made those little squares on the left side of the "Getting Ready" page. I layered 3 strips of paper and then punched them out in squares and matted them. I like the way they turned out. The letters are chalked.

I love the picture of Jim and Alex going off to snorkel together and this beautiful paper is just perfect for it.


This is a beautiful beach right on the Marine Corps base Hawaii. What a wonderful view and the water is glorious. Alex had a blast and so did Jim.

Just Playin' Around

A cute one of Alex being silly on the beach....just a few different shots with a bunch of circles punched out of the excess photo. A little wave at the bottom with 'footprints in the sand' punched out.


This is a 2 page layout I completed. The sea shells and star fish are made out of polymer clay and I love the way that they really finish off the page.

Are we there yet?

More layouts from our Hawaii vacation!!


Driving along the road just enjoying the beautiful colors of the land. I got this palm tree die cut a while ago in a kit that was 50% off and had tons of stuff in it. I did some doodling with a green marker to add some extra grass at the bottom of the page. Found these pretty pink flowers at Walmart and I knew they would add to the page because I had that Oahu die cut with the pink flowers on it.

16 Hour Crop

Well I'm back from a 16 hour crop and it was a fantastic day of cropping and fun with a really good friend, Sandi. I was able to complete a total of 18 layouts which exceeded my goal of one per hour so I was really happy when the day was done. My back hurts from sitting for so long in a metal folding chair but next time I will be a bit more prepared with something for that. Will post more pictures tomorrow.

Class at the local scrapbook store

I took a class last night and made this layout. I learned distressing using water and wrinkling the paper and embossing and heat setting among other things. It was a great class and I really enjoyed myself and got to know some other ladies in my area that are scrapbookers!

Just a fun and cute layout of Alex swimming at Turtle Bay resort in the heated pool, he stayed in there for hours and didn't want to come out.

On Patrol

First layout I did for Robert's deployment book.

I have always loved this picture that I took of Alex almost 4 years ago and I finally got inspired to put it on a scrapbook page. This was such a wonderful and fun afternoon for both of us. Kids are so low maintenance and playing with a little fountain attached to a hose is sometimes all it takes.

It's not just a cardboard box

Another one of those days where Alex was amusing himself and created the perfect opportunity for me to scrapbook a moment in his life.
