Fun in the sun

Fun photos of the gang at the pool in May in wet suits because the water was still pretty chilly.
I used the Sketch from Paper Secrets and did the challenge - my items for the word CAMP - cardstock, arrow, men (in the photos) and prima stickers. Also for the challenge at Little scrap pieces anything goes.

First swim of the season

Cold enough for wet suits but they got in.
Used the sketch from Scrap Much? and for their color challenge as well.

Happy Day!

I love this photo of Gracie and GPa chillin' in the hammock on our campout so I made a page for Gary's album.  I used the sketch at My Scraps and More #89.  It is also for the Stuck on us Sketches challenge to use a camera die cut/shape on your page.

Photos of the kids playing at the park.  Everyday stuff!
For the current challenge at Color Me scrappy #68.  Love these colors.  My colors are little more subtle than the inspiration photo.


Loved this camping trip and especially like the photo of Gracie and GPa chillin'.  I used sketch 407 from Scrapbook Challenges for the right hand side of this two pager and for the challenge at Lasting Memories to scrap vacation memories.

Baby Boy

More cute photos of Zachary.  I used the sketch from Paper Secrets and used stickers, white ribbon, ink and metal for my "swim" items.

Here is the ball, hit it maybe?

Fun photo of Smokie, who is bringing the ball over to play.  He just loves fetching the ball, but only is you hit it.  You can't throw it!
For the challenges:
Scrap and Play to feature your 4 legged friends.
Cookin up creation to use the song :Call me maybe: or some play on words with it
for the Jewel tones challenge at Scrapbook circle
Used the sketch from Let's get sketchy week 2

GO = Mission trip

Taken the day Timothy was leaving to go on his mission trip.  Sweet and precious family!  I used the photo from Creative Embellishment blog as inspiration (colors).

Natural Beauty

Fun photos of Gracie from the Easter Celebration at Lane's Chapel last year.  I used the sketch 406 from Scrapbook challenges.


Photos of Gracie and Mikey and Charlie on a Sunday morning.  Loved using the big alphas!  Love that look but usually use way too many photos to use something like that.  For the challenge at Lasting memories to use alphas or numbers.  I also used the sketch from Scrapbook Challenges sizzling summer sketch #1.

Birthday Fun

Gracie playing at Mikey's 7th birthday party.  I used the sketch from Let's Get sketchy and put a group of photos into the one photo spot on the sketch.


Fun photos of us playing with bubbles with Gracie.  Her daddy had just as much fun as her.   I used the sketch from Sketch n scrap # 62.  Also for the anything goes challenge at Little Scrap Pieces.

Slice of Summer

Photos of Stephanie and Gracie playing in the pool.  I used the August sketch from Sketches for All and I printed the photo out in an altered color (sepia-or something) so decided to put it on a page by itself so this sketch worked.  For the challenge at Lasting Memories heat wave challenge to use the inspiration photo and for Color Me Scrappy.   No better way to beat the heat in Texas than to jump in the pool.

Loving you is so easy

Photos of my Gracie girl.   I used sketch 88 from My Scraps and more and it is for the Myscraps and more challenge to do fuzzy cutting and use finger painting(or something like that).
