First Best Friend

For this layout (probably the last until we move! Less than a week now!), I borrowed this sketch from a Scrap-a-Little Sketches:

and used some old photos of my boys
and the theme of Friendship from Friday's Challenge at Frosted Designs:
But -- I was too late to add it there. :-( Can't get used to noon Central Time LOL.

Studio Tour

This is another Frosted Designs sketch. And I used the colors for Erika's Issue Challenge over at Club Creating Keepsakes. The colors for this week's challenge were navy, yellow and lime green. And here's the sketch from Frosted Designs:

I used this for the right hand page then tweaked it a bit for the companion page -- here's my full layout:

Here are the individual pages:

I used DCWV's Designer Jeans stack for the base paper. I think it's Bazzil yellow, but I'm not positive. And the green pp is from a K & Company stack. And the buttons are from my button jar. I may end up adding one more strip of journaling to the top left (a date) and one button or small circle to the bottom left. Still thinking on that...

These are from our Spring Break trip to Los Angeles. We went on the NBC Tour. It's not all that exciting. Although we did get to see Fritz Coleman (weather man) getting out of his car. We had a fun time down there and I've enjoyed scrapping the photos.

First a Little Toot!

My layout, Turtle Time, that I submitted to Frosted Designs for last week's sketch challenge was one of their Top Three! So I'm tooting my own horn :-) I've sent an email requesting the coveted blinkie :-) They announced it last Thursday, but I didn't see it until this morning! We've been a little busy....

And After the Rain....

The next day, this is what the sky looked like -- out my back slider, just like the shots of the hail on the neighbor's roof and almost tornado

Crazy weather

We've been having insane weather here! Yesterday we had a crack of thunder that sent the cat racing back in. Then it started to rain, then pour. Pretty soon we were getting hail. There were tornadoes too! We saw a funnel cloud starting to form, but it didn't have enough speed going.

Christmas in ToonTown

Another oldie pictures layout. The photos aren't the best, but they bring back lots of memories. Having Disney passes and taking the kids so often was so much fun.

This was based on a layout from Sassy Sketches.
