May Was Beautiful!

For my second page for May, I included several pictures that are just the 'ordinary' things around here. Ordinary and yet so very "un-ordinary"! How can I take such beauty, on large and small scale, for granted? Who is not filled with wonder at such blessings around you?

Yearbook May Right 




I used Gypsy Couture's 'Uncommon Days' for this page.





It seems summer is rushing to a close...it sure went by quickly!

Looking Back - July Guest Spot

I was fortunate to have a guest CT spot with Rachel from Seatrout Scraps in July. I really like Rachel's work. The kits are pretty, practical, adaptable and she is super organised which made it a breeze to keep track of what happens when. Thank you Rachel!
You can find Seatrout Scraps at Gingerscraps, GottaPixel and Scrapbookbytes.

Some of the LO's I made during the month : (LO's have store links for Gingerscraps)










Thanks for dropping by!

Yearbook - July 2014

Catching up on previous years is not going as well as I would have liked it to, BUT so far I'm keeping up with this year's pages! July 2014 - Left



I used Cathy Krenek's 'Bug Hunter' Bundle for this page. Right now the pieces of 'Bug Hunter' are available separately as part of the Gingerscraps Buffet. I expect it will be made available as a bundle in the near future. You can find it HERE


I really like that little ant wondering across the page ;-)

Aunt Mabel...and a Good Buy

I made this LO a while back, but wanted to draw your attention to this beautiful kit "A Mother's Love" by Cathy Krenek. It is on sale at the time of writing. This beauty can be yours for only $2.00.

 Find it HERE

I really like the way these colours work together and how perfect it is for my vintage picture!

Working in The Garden

Ha! This picture of our oldest son always make me smile! He looks so goofy....and I'm sure he intended that! The gardening efforts were not too successful, but the fruit trees and flowers were adequate compensation for the lack of vegetables.



I used Cathy Krenek's "Garden Grown Bundle". It is chock full delightful little goodies to make many wondeful LO's. Actually, it would be easy to make an album using only this collection.



I'm linking here to Cathy's store at GottaPixel, but it is also available at her Gingerscraps store (the store is closed at the time of writing, for upgrades) All the parts of the bundle are available separately too.

Do you have any cute/goofy pictures of the kids in the garden? Go ahead and scrap them, then you too will have a smile on your face when you look at them in years to come.

1941 - Friends

Kimberly Stewart recently released another kit that just begged me to scrap some vintage photos with - "
"Maybe -The Kit"  The colours as well as the elements are exactly what I like and Kimberly's papers are always beautiful.

Family Heirloom

This picture featuring my Great grandparents is particularly special. My sister and a distant cousin calculated that this picture was taken in December of 1892, which means that Great Grandma is carrying my Grandma (who was born the following February) Yup, that ‘bump’ is Grandma. Isn't that amazing?
My cousin is writing a series of books on some of the women in my family, all named ‘Sophia Charlotte’ and since she knows our history pretty well, I’m sure they are right about their conclusion. Pretty neat stuff!

I used the “Artless Collection” by Lonetta Avelar for this page in my family history album. Gorgeous stuff!




I turned my page into a Quick Page for you. Get the freebie HERE. Sorry for the mistake on the preview! The collection/kit is called Artless not Artful *blush*

Enjoy!
