Rosey Posey Play Day

This is Miss Hailey - she lives downstairs from us. I'm not sure she's used to having her photo take yet, but she'll get there! lol

  • Kit - Studio Rosey Posey - Beach Babe
  • Template - I believe it's Amy Martin over at the Lily Pad, but I could be wrong.
Thanks for stopping by!

Puppy Love

Now what is cuter than a puppy? Not me anyway. This particular puppy will only get to be 11 pounds full grown, so even in a couple of years, she will still have that puppy look to her. In that photo, she's playing with her favorite toy - a fox - with no stuffing - with a squeaker at each end. We must love her to put up with that!

Smile for the Camera!

I totally LOVE bright colors! You will notice MOST of the time, I scrap bright. This layout is definitely BRIGHT! Time and again I say how much I love template from NeeNee Designs, and this again is no exception! The bright, however, gets attributed to Wild Dandelions.

A Kiss...

to make it better.

Wasn't life simpler when your kids really believed that boo boos could be healed with a kiss? Unfortunately, that isn't the way. And although this particular picture was taken three months ago, my daughter is currently very sick and even at 18 she wants mom to make it better...unfortunately with Mononucleosis, a kiss just isn't gonna cut it.

Credits go to:
  • Kit - Care for You - Charlize Creations
  • Template - from a bloghop (sorry - that's all the info I have)
Come back and see more tomorrow...I seem to be on a blogging roll....

Blues and greens together always make me think of water...and therefore, summer! This layout is no exception, especially with those cute little fish. My daughter is definitely not one who is a water/beach lover, but every so often, we get her into the water.

Color My World

I have to say - I totally LOVE this layout! I also have to say - I credit it to NeeNee Designs. I have told her many times and I will say it on my blog - her templates allow me to scrap the way I WANT to scrap...but until I can do it on my own - I grab quickly for her templates!

What's with the...

TONGUE!??! Don't you love kids? They tend to stick out the pictures as soon as you point the camera at them. My daughter is'd think she'd know better than to continually do this. Obviously not, since once again I have this layout with her sticking her tongue out at me. Oh well!

And that's all for today! See you soon!

Beautiful You

I must say that I totally LOVE this layout! Between the kit and the template (not to mention the pictures of my daughter) this is one of those layouts I look at and KNOW that this is why I scrapbook. It's also a layout that shows me how far I have come in just over a year.

Bella Boo

Cute puppy alert! This is Bella and she's a Dachshund (not to be confused with a Nissan Scott!) Anyway, isn't she adorable? She's a mini Dachshund and should only reach about 10 lbs. Now she just needs to be housetrained....

Once Upon A Lifetime

I love it when I just simply take the time to scrap - just for me! Not a team commitment or anything else. Just scrapping for the total joy of it! This is one of those layouts! It's my daughter - looking gorgeous (biased opinion I know) and getting ready to leave for her Junior Prom.

Still blogging....see you tomorrow!

I totally love this layout! Why? Well, maternal pride I guess! My daughter took this picture of Devin. As part of her Senior Project, she is making the yearbook for the 2010-2011 school year for Oakland Beach Elementary School. Her first assignment had been to attend and photograph Field Day at the end of the 2009-2010 school year. She caught this picture of Devin while she was there! I thought it was AWESOME and scrapped it immediately!

More to come...stay tuned! LOL
