More old photos -- and a few newer ones

Here's the newest -- our dog, Southpaw enjoying the sun.  (for a challenge at Paper Issues)

The next is an old photo, Christmas car and souvenirs from the Marine Corps Birthday Ball, 1986.  Boy, we were young.  lol

The next is for a challenge at Scrap Our Stash, using a sketch and the word FLOWER (use items on the layout starting with each letter)
My items are:  Flowered paper, Lines of  journaling, lined/striped paper, Ochre color, Word stickers, Ecru Ephemera Embellishments, Red apples

I think this was spring or summer of '92 -- Scott was walking well but was still in diapers or pullups.  Such fun memories.  Miss those days :-)

A few for various challenges

These photos are horrible, but they're from our time in DC/NoVA and I wanted to document the story.  We used to go up to DC all the time on weekends -- something was always going on.  We were up there one weekend for the Kite Festival -- a very blustery, cloudy Kite Festival.  It's always so fun seeing all those kites in the sky.  It's for challenge at Paper Issues (Take 5).

The next one is a photo of a coworker and me.  The journaling talks about how I didn't realize how lucky I was to be working where I was.  But I ended up at another school with a much less wonderful staff and director and learned the lesson.  Fun times in Orange.  This was another challenge at PI

And the last one for today -- more throw back photos (I've been having so much fun with these oldies).  David and the boys at The Farm (my in-law's).  For a dual challenge with a sketch from Rochelle Spears April Rewind and Grand Diva's April Inspiration Challenges.
