Well, I decided to give my blog a facelift. Lucy pointed the way for me to find some cool backgrounds, so I thought I would give it a try. Of course, the banner no longer fits, but I will keep trying new backgrounds and banners until I am happy with how they look together. Keep in mind, I am really dumb when it comes to Photo Shop Elements, so it may take a while! Feel free to leave comments on what you think!!
It was a FABULOUS weekend with Lucy and Betty! The only problem was that it went by way too fast! It has been a busy scrappy week and I think I got some nice stuff done. Here's a sneaky-peek!!
This was for the crop at ScrapbookDoodle. It is a crop where you can only use scraps. And, on this one I had to do a 6X12 page about ME using only scraps that Lisa sent me. Thanks, Lisa!!
This was also for the crop at Doodle. The challenge was to use hand stitching. So, I did the large circle. All I can say is, I need a sewing machine!! LOL!
This was a sketch challenge for Magistical Memories. I loved the sketch and of course, love the subject of the page!
And, this was also done for Doodle. It was a challenge to use a sketch by Becky Higgins. I love how it came out! Mr. Cool at his best!! I hope everyone out there is well. Here it is the perfect snowy, scrappy Sunday. Have a great day!!
Ok, Scrappers!! There is going to be a crop at WeScrap in a few weeks! I was able to participate in their last one and had a great time....head on over and check it out! Can't wait to see what you create!!

Happy Snow -Day!! It was wonderful to have the phone ring at 4:30am to tell me that I could shut the alarm off and stay home today. Ahhhh.....sometimes living in Maine in winter pays off! I have been puttering around the house this morning baking banana bread, picking up the kitchen, chatting with friends and starting to do some re-organizing down stairs. While I have been puttering away, TWO storms have raged on. TWO storms you ask?? Yup! One outside....and one inside!
Here is what the storm OUTSIDE looks like:
And here is what the storm INSIDE looks like!! I think they have darn near every toy they own out!! But, they are having a great time together and giggling non-stop. I LOVE SNOW-DAYS!!!
Well, I have finished the Christmas present for my sweet Memere...better late than never, right?!! For those of you who don't know what a Memere is, she is my grandmother. Memere is the French-Canadian word for "Grammy." She is super special and still going strong at 89. Getting her a gift is always hard because she has everything she needs and really doesn't have room for more knick-knacks. So, I decided to bug my cousins for pictures so I could make her a "brag book" of all of her 9 Great-Grand children. I used mostly "school photos" because they are the perfect size (and that's what they sent me :) ).
I am only posting a few of the pages here. If I get permission from my cousins, I will add their kids' pages later. For now, you have the cover...
I need to interject some thanks here---> Thank you, Libby for helping me with how to make this cover!! It came out beautifully!! You rock, girlie!!
I wanted to include this page. It is the back page of the album and has my little note to her along with a photo. Isn't she gorgeous!!??!! Here is Colby's page: And, here is Elizabeth's page:
I used a Bo Bunny 6"X6" chipboard 3-ring binder album. And, I used mostly scraps for the pages. I learned a lot doing my first mini album, that's for sure! I will do some things differently next time, but I think Memere will love it, just the same!
