Hale Koa Beach

Just a little beach area we discovered while we were exploring the Marine Corps base.

Breathing Space

I saw a commercial yesterday with beautiful scenery and the words "Breathing space" flashed on the screen and I instantly thought of the beautiful panoramic photos I have from our trip to the Grand Canyon.

A layout I finally was able to put together with a sepia photo I had of the boys from before Robert deployed to Iraq. The picture was taken in the fall of 2005.

My first homemade card

So it seems that when you scrapbook the next thing to try is cards, right? This is my first attempt at a card and I'm mailing it out to mom tomorrow. :)

You make me happy

A few more from Hawaii

Went to a 10 hour Creative Memories Crop yesterday so I was able to work on a few more pages for my Hawaii book. I did a little bit of everything, pictures from when I went to the Botanical Gardens, more beach pictures (of course)...different techniques with ink and wrinkling and of course I used my Cricut for some of the lettering. They had a Sizzix machine set up so I used that for one of the layouts to have a different font because I like to change things up a bit. I didn't win any raffles this time, last year I won a huge basket with all sorts of organizational things in it. I took a 10 minute chair massage which was very relaxing. The food was very good and overall I had a lovely day. I already signed up for the next one which will be November 10th, so I'm glad I did because I got a discount for the being an early bird. :)

Can't go a whole day lately without doing some scrapbooking. I went to AC Moore and picked up a ton of flowers at 50% off this weekend and I've been cutting them apart and spraying them with archival mist, can't wait to start using some of them. This is from pictures I took yesterday at the farm, they have a swing set up at the top of the hill for kids to play on and Alex had a blast!!!

More Hawaii stuff

This is the last 3 Hawaii pages that I completed on my recent 16 hour crop. I will be working on other stuff now for a while and I am still not sure that I'm going to work on when I go to the 10 hour Creative Memories Crop next weekend, I guess I better figure that out and start preparing my supplies.

This was a layout that I did for a challenge on the ezboard I am on. We had to do a monochromatic green layout and the minute I read that I thought of Alex's room and the pictures of him in his new room.

Sharing the creativity

What is it that they say about the greatest form of flattery? I am really impressed at Alex's scrapbook, it is turning out so nice. He wanted his own scrapbook but he wasn't satisfied with the ones they sell in the Dollar Tree, no...not my kid...he wanted one with a dog pattern on it and that's what he got. He took a few pictures of Daisy and I had to get them printed out for him and he picked out his paper and I got him some stickers. He's having a good time doing his book.
