I love to go up here.  And this time we took our granddaughter.  We used to take our boys when they were little long time ago.
For the challenge at Lasting Memories - my country tis of thee.
I also used the sketch from Stuck on u sketches.

First Bath

I love these photos of Zachary from his first bath.  I did challenge #5 at Scrap and play.  I used stickets, pp, love, alphas, snuggle (the word) and hearts.  It is also for the challenge at Paper Secrets July 1st sketch.  I converted it to 8 1/2 x 11 and used only 2 of the 4 photos.

Father, pop, papa, dad

This month at Cookin up creations, we are featuring TV Shows and Taco Tuesday is a sketch challenge. So I picked this sketch for you to use from Stuck?Sketches blog. It is their July Sketch. I converted it to an 8 1/2 x 11 page.  I picked the TV Show "Father knows Best" and did a page about my son and his new baby.  Go to cookin up creations and join my challenge!
It is also for the current challenge at Frosted Designs since they teamed up with Stuck?Sketches this month.
For child's play challenge - I featured the triangles and circles from the photo (with a punch at the bottom of the page).


I love this photo because it was just so funny how Gracie jumped in front of the camera and made this silly photo when I was trying to get a picture of the new baby brother Zachary and Gpa.  She might have been just a tiny bit jealous!   I used the June sketch from My Creative Sketches.

Always be curious

Fun photos of Gracie and Stephanie playing dress up! 
I used sketch 60 from Sketch n scrap.


Ashley's 21st birthday family meal/celebration.
For Kelly's word challenge (family, celbrate, laugh, the colors), Brenda's sketch challenge and Rochelle's tic tac toe challenge (I used brads, stars, tag)  for their scrappy friends challenge.
For Creative Embellishments photo inspiration challenge
For the Paper Girls challenge to use red, white and blue.
For Color me scrappy color challenge - color plus a celebration!

The title page for my new grandson's baby album.  I used the sketch from sketch n scrap inspired by sketch #6.  I flipped the sketch and converted it to 8 1/2 x 11.

Slice of Summer

When I saw the challenge from Frosted Design to use this mood board I found this photo of Gracie playing in the water sprinkler at her home.  I used summer colors and the title with the word summer on it.  I used the sketch from Sketch n scrap #58.

Baby Boy

My first page to scrap with my new grandson, Zachary.  I decided to do his book 8 1/2 x 11.
For my challenge at Cookin up creations for the 5th birthday bash celebration.  My word for the day is celebrate.  So my challenge is to scrap anything that deserves a celebration - new baby, birthday, graduation, etc.
For the challenge at Back Porch Memories to use buttons.  I used real buttons and the buttons in the stickers.
For the June challenge at Scrapping everyday miracles. Theme and verse: James 1:17  "Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows."  This may not be an everyday occurrence but it is a miracle from God!


A lot of different photos from several days from our trip last summer to Vermont.  Love this travel collection (I think I got it from Back Porch memories).
For the Scrap and play bingo challenge - I used chipboard, enamel dots and fiber.
For the challenge at Back Porch Memories to use various kinds of pp on your page.
For the birthday bash at sketch n scrap and Lisa's challenge to use only scraps.
