Christmas Afternoon

I woke up with snow on Christmas Morning except I didn't get outside to take a picture until it was almost melted.  You can barely see my Christmas Tree in the front window.  I wish my mother was here to see the snow on Christmas Morning.  Hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas.

EVOLUTION OF A SCRAPBOOKER

(I found this on another scrapbooking blog, liked it so well I wanted to share it with you)

1. "Cut a picture? You've got to be kidding!"


2. "Well those sure are cute pages. I'm not that creative."

3. "You have IDEA BOOKS? Let me see."

4. "I guess I'll need an album, some adhesives, and paper."

5. "Oh, and I'll also need some templates, stickers, die cuts, & one of those trimmer things."

6. "I can't get my page to look exactly like the one in the book!"

7. "You mean I have to write in my album I will need some pens. What should I write?"

8. "I finished my first page. Do you like it?"

9. "You know I have a ton of zoo pictures, and Jr. needs his school pages done; I need another album & some more paper."

10. "You have printed paper? And precut paper? I'll take one of each!"

11. "NEW STICKERS? I'll take some!"

12. "NEW DIECUTS? I'll need those!"

13. "A NEW TOOL! I NEED THAT!"

14. "A NEW IDEA BOOK? GIVE ME THAT NOW!"

15. "Wow- even bags and binders to get my supplies organized? I definitely need those!"

16. "Sorry honey, you'll have to make dinner- I'm off to a crop!"

17. "Clean socks are in the dryer!"

18. "HOLD IT! I HAVE to get a picture of that for the scrapbook."

19. "Would you please wear this shirt? I have the cutest paper to use in my layout and that will match perfectly!"

20. "YES, I came up with the idea myself."

21. "YES, that is my own handwriting."

22. "YES, I make time to scrapbook."

23. "Honey, we need to add a room to the house for my Scrapping room."

24. "Life is crazy. I just need to crop!"

25. Tax time: "Yes, scrapbooking is a medical deduction--it's my THERAPY."

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY

To my mother:
"IF ROSES GROW IN HEAVEN LORD, PLEASE PICK A BUNCH FOR ME, MAKE SURE THAT THEY ARE PINK AND PLACE THEM IN MY MOTHER'S ARMS AND TELL HER THEY'RE FROM ME. TELL HER I LOVE HER AND MISS HER, AND WHEN SHE TURNS TO SMILE, PLACE A KISS UPON HER CHEEK AND HOLD HER FOR A WHILE. BECAUSE REMEMBERING HER IS EASY, I DO IT EVERY DAY, BUT THERE'S AN ACHE WHITHIN MY HEART THAT WILL NEVER GO AWAY. I MISS YOU MAMA♥ HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!."

Scrapbook Layouts


This is a layout of finish several months ago.  I thought I would share it.  This is of my mother and Courtney my daughter and my mother's oldest grandchild.  This was actually the last Christmas 2007 that mother got to enjoy at home.  I am so glad that I made this picture.  We miss you mother very much.
This layout is of Courtney and Bella.  I love the colors that were in this paper. 

This layout here is of Courtney, Larry and me.  This picture was taken back in 2007.  I love the colors in this paper and love the Christmas trees.

My Parents Wedding Picture 1954

This is a layout I completed last night for a challenge on Scrapbook.com.  I have been working on this for several months.  I can't seem to stay focus on anything since my mother passed away.  I remember the last things is said to me on August 16, "Go an make a poster" I knew what she meant was to go a scrapbook.  She loved to look at my scrapbooks that I have made for my daughter, Courtney.  Mother would also sit with me and tell me about pictures I had and stories behind those pictures.  Family was truly important to my mother.  Oh, How I miss her.  Hope everyone enjoyes this layout.  It was made with love.

Snow/Ice on the water


This picture was taken from my front porch.  This is across the street from my house this morning.  I thought it was pretty how the snow/ice was laying on the water.
