Winter Wonderland

Photos of my puppies in our "snow", mostly ice.  But it was fun and they were frisky.  We don't get a lot of snow in East Texas.    So when we do, we bundle up and go play.
For the Stuck on us sketch Snow challenge.

Capture the moment

Simple photos for me and the grandkids at lunch one day with the dil.  But special memories anyway.
For the challenge at Lasting memories to capture the moment.  And I used the sketch from Stuck?Sketches.

The Pool

Photos from May of last year.  It was still too cold to swim so they dawned the wet suits and jumped in.

I used the sketch from Brenda for her challenge.

A Perfect Day

I used the sketch from week 1 Let's Get Sketchy for this page.  I also did this for the challenge at Lasting Memories for their simple pleasures challenge.  Going out to eat for birthday's is a simple pleasure and spending time with the kids and grandkids.

Tiny Miracle

 I used a sketch with a sunburst from inspired to scrap. net for this page and the color inspiration photo from Let's Capture our Memories.
Zachary - the little cutie.

Photos of Stephanie being baptized in our pool.  I used the Scripture and theme from Scrapping Everyday Miracles for Jan.

Our scripture theme this month is 2 Corinthians 5:17 
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!  

I wrote this scripture at the bottom of the page although you can't see it very well in the photo.

Timo is 23

Photos of Timothy at his birthday dinner when he turned 23 (Cracker barrel). I used the sketch from Sketch n scrap.   I used one 4x6 photo on the bottom instead of 3 smaller ones like the sketch has.

Gpa and Zachary

Gary and Zachary - Used the sketch from Stuck ? Sketches.  Had to convert it to 8 1/2 x 11.

Families are forever

Photo of Stephanie and Timothy on a trip to Cracker Barrel for Timothy's 23 birthday.  Made this one for her album.  I used the sketch from Show us your stuff (rotated it) and my handmade item is the tag with the quote on it.

Boy oh boy

Photos of Zachary with his great grandparents on Stephanie's side for her album.
I used the sketch from My Creative Sketches.

Our Bluebirds

I love these photos Gary was able to capture with the zoom from inside the house of the bludbirds feeding their babies. Both mom and dad bluebirds would feed them on our pool deck. Loved watching them grow and fly away.   They had two or three different sets of babies over the summer.
They really didn't like us being on the pool deck and swimming and such because they wanted to come feed but didn't really like to do it while we were out there.
For the challenge for week 5 at Let's Get Sketchy to do a monochromatic layout.   Of course, I used all blue for the bluebird page.   I also used the sketch from Let's Scrap Sketch blog for this page.  I combined all 4 of the circles onto on page.

Xo Xo

3 couples - Steph and Timo, Gary and I, and Jeremy and Ashley at the Evan's anniversary party. These papers were perfect.  I used the sketch (and rotated it) from Let's Capture our memories.

Unky Mike

Photos of my Uncle Mike playing with Gracie.  He probably couldn't walk for a week after this!
I used the week 2 sketch from Let's get sketchy.
