Rip Zone

We go to the Park often because our yard is minuscule. We have our favorites and there is lots of running around.
Loved working with Stacey's latest kit. This one was so fun and I'll use it again and again. Loved the metal elements and the signs. Go check it out on Stacey's Scraps. All the gals did awesome layouts so you can see the kit in all it's glory. Hee!
Congratulations to the winners of the Template Challenge. Just beautiful Layouts. Enjoy your gift certificate.

Road Trip

The kid's love to make funny faces. We usually eat at McDonald's half way, but I sure would love something better. It's a long drive and we do it twice a year. Just can't afford to fly and then rent a car and car seats....Blah Blah! We always have fun while we are visiting and Gammie is 93 and won't be here forever. We have to enjoy her as much as we can. Love to here her stories of her younger years.
This is a new Freebie from DigiScrap Addicts - Wild Dandelions - SYTYCD WK3 - Hit the Road, Font - CK Higgins Hand.

Blanket Napper

So I woke up this morning at 4am COLD and felt for my blanket. It was missing. Upon opening my eyes I looked over at my husband who had worked until midnight and was peacefully sleeping with my blanket covering him. (He is usually HOT and doesn't want one but after the Thunder Storm last night it was a little cool.) So I got up and got another. This morning I told him that he had kidnapped my blankie and I had woke up cold. He said I must have put it on him during the night and fallen back to sleep. HA! I said, You must have pulled it over onto yourself when you got cold. I have been teasing him all morning, calling him the "Blanket Napper".

Check back later for all the latest Kits and Layouts. Stacey has two coming out this week and Scrap That Idea have a fantastic Collab out. I'll post kit previews and layouts later today.

Mommy's Little Girl

Loved this cute little outfit from Mima but it was so hard to get on and off that you only wore it this one time and I took photo's. Such pretty material! I wished I knew what you were thinking in this shot.

Finally Home

This is my take on the Template Challenge. This is my cousin and her husband just back from Afghanistan. Used Stacey's Scraps - Fly Boy kit.
Happy Memorial Day and today I'm thinking not only of all those lost in battle but the family's on both sides left behind. It's not just about Bar-B-Q's and fun but one of Remembrance! And of being thankful for all our men and women in the Armed Forces.

Head over to Stacey's and pick up this great Template and go for it. It's worth $20 Gift Certificate.

Love the Park

We went to the park one evening when Daddy was working and had so much fun playing. You always want to walk Solie.
Used Sweet Blossom Designs - Garden Love.

Mothers Day

We went to Rancho San Rafael Park and walked through the gardens. It was beautiful and our daughter was very excited to see a rabbit.
Used Sweet Blossom Designs - Cotton Candy kit.

That 70's Party and My Boy Loves to Dance

Love this new kit from Stacey's Scraps, Dancing Queen. You have to check out her blog and all the other CT pages. Really Love this one. Makes me think of the Movie Mama Mia. Hee! I will use this one again and again. It's only $3 at Scrap That Idea. That is amazing. Traditional Scraping you would pay that for 5 papers and you can only use those once.

My good friend and I on our way to a 70's party many years ago when we were younger and thinner. LOL. Our son at a birthday party in April and they have a fun dance floor with lights.

This is a cute kit from AWP - Vicki - Flutterby Flowers, Font - Fontdinerdotcom Sparkly.

Batman Heros Have Capes

You got your Batman costume a little early and wanted to wear it all the time especially while riding your bike. You would watch your shadow to see if it was flapping in the wind. Dad and I smiled to each other. You have a little batman costume for your rabbit too!

Used AWP - Vicki - Country Cottage, Font - Galeforce BTN.

Water Park

This was an amazing day. I decided to stay all day if we could especially since we can't go often. The kid's didn't nap any more so we should do OK. They had such fun in the kiddie area. My older nephew's took our son to play a little while I played with our daughter. Even now when ever we drive by the park they ask to go, even in winter. I explain that it has to be hot to play outside in the water. Hope we can go once or twice this year.
Used Kristin Aagards - Bath Time kit, Font - Galeforce BTN, and the alpha is unknown (no information on file name, no preview or TOU.) Sorry would love to know who's it is.

Rainy Day and Hip Hop

Here is Stacey other very cute kit. This was so much fun to work with. You have to go to her blog and check both of these cute kits out. Sorry for the delay. You have a few more days for the freebie before it goes to the store. Be sure to say Thanks. We love comments and she is an AMAZING designer.
My two love rainy day's and well when you live in the desert high or low it doesn't rain much. Our daughter is a puddle jumper and when she sees a puddle some time's I say, "Don't even think about it" because I know what she is going to do. Our son was jumping from rock to rock and I said they could be slippery and I didn't think it was a good idea because he could fall and get hurt. He didn't get hurt but he did get very wet. His face was one of shock and disgust.

Noah's Ark

Here is a preview of Stacey's new Kit 2 by 2. I can't believe I forgot to post these to my blog. I have been posting every where (Hee! Hee!) and forgot to put them here too! What a fun kit to work with. I have to figure out how you can click my preview and go to her blog. For now go to my side bar to see this cute kit.
This was such a cute room and our sweet little boy never slept in it. I worked swing shift 7pm to 3am and well I would either fall asleep in the rocker for 3 or 4 hours and wake up stiff or be up and down after I got slept in bed with me where you could nurse when you wanted and I didn't have to move. My sweet friend gave me everything, all the furniture and bedding. Our daughter made good use of it...I wanted to sleep a night through more than anything but you woke up every two hours. What a zombie! But sometimes I would be so tired and just watch you. There's nothing like it. Watching your baby sleep....

My Bike

Some of you may not know it but I used to have a bike. My Dad and I went on many trips all over the country and I took a few on my own. Wow there is nothing like it. You feel like your flying. It's quiet a Rush. Now that I have little ones and am older, feel mortal and have given it up at least for a while. But on a beautiful day when I see others out riding I long for the freedom of a ride. My Dad taught me to ride when I was 13 years old. I tell you that was a long time ago. It is so great to see more women riders today. I felt like the only one for years.
The kit I use was a new one from Flergs - Digiscrap Addicts - Helter Skelter & Into Twilight. Go to her blog and it's week 3 of SYTYCD.

Sticky Goodness

Here is Sara's new kit Cotton Candy. I was a Guest CT this week on her blog and made the above page with her kit. Go to my side bar to check out all her beautiful work.
Took the kid's to the Park the other day and got some cute photo's with their cotton candy; or as they say down under "Fairy Floss". Learned this from Sara, and thought it was very cute. They had such a good time because we seldom have cotton candy. I feel the need for having my teeth cleaned at the dentist after. LOL. I forgot to show you Stacey's preview's with my pages but will with the next CT pages.

Dads Memorial

The service was so wonderful and we were so glad that we had it at our old church in Kansas City. So many of Dad's friends, co-workers and fellow bikers were their. It was so great to connect faces to all the stories of the special people in his life. Sure missing him especially all the stories and I'm sad that my little one's won't grow up hearing them. Paul and Marsha did a wonderful service for us.

Nature Walk

It was a beautiful day in March and we went for a wonderful hike along the River Walk on the Truckee. I was wonderful and still have more photo's to scrap.
Beautiful new kit be AWP - Vicki - Simplicity, Font - Holiday Springs BTN Quill.

The Doctor's

I did a traditional layout of this photo for my daughters room. They had fun playing doctor with the Baby Doll. I knew I wanted to get some photo's of them playing doctor so I told them I would buy them a doctor kit to go with their outfits. They operated, checked baby and gave her shots.
Love this kit. Picked it up on NSD from Haynay Designs - Just the Right Medicine, Font - CK Scrawl & Goudy Old Style. Go to my side bar to check out Haynay's blog.

Pyramid Lake

It was a perfect day to go to the lake. Not to Hot! The kids had so much fun playing in the water and digging in the sand. We might not be close to the ocean but there are some great lakes here.

I love my new PSE. I just zipped around the kids with the magnetic lasso and Tada, it was done.

Gonna Get Me

This was a park we don't usually go to but you two had such a good time there. They had three different playgrounds and we tried them all. You favorite game of course is when I chase you. I'm either a Shark, Monster or something else and sometimes all the kids want to play too!
This is a fun new kit by Stacey's Scraps - Space Cadet, Font - Metalic Avocado. Go to my side bar to get to her blog.


I got some great pictures of our daughter this day last year. Our son was in preschool and we went to a fun little park on the other side of town. She had fun playing in the leaves, on the playground and playhouse.
Kit used was a grab bag I picked up at Scrapbook Graphics. My first Grab. Used Studio Flergs part - Buttercup, Font - Liorah BT.


Starting to get a few photos of 2007 done. Almost done with 2008. Yeah! Our little girl was playing in the fountain at Auntie's House and I snapped these through the window.

Kit used was Sweet Blossom Design - Sweet Valentine.

Garden of Love

This was a fun trip to Great Grandma's and you two had so much fun playing in the back yard. Especially jumping off the big rock.
I used Sweet Blossom Designs - Garden of Love kit, Font - Elegant.


For Earth Day two years ago we have a fun thing called Tune into Kid's, there was free fishing, model trains, pony rides and more. It was bitter cold but our son caught eight fish. This was his first time fishing and he loved it. Daddy has his annual fishing trip this time of year and he didn't catch as many as our son. LOL. The Model Train was a big hit as our son Choo Choo's in the picture.
Kit used was Sweet Blossom Design - Bee Happy, Font - Character.
