The First Fishing Pole

This is Stacey's Scraps newest kit, "Not Too Shabby". I was on vacation and missed this beautiful kit and she is such a sweetie and now I have made the very cute page of my little boy play fishing on our vacation to California in '07. He loved his Scooby Doo fishing pole and fished everywhere; parking lots, fields, backyards and anywhere else he could practice his casting. We did have to draw the line on occasion even though it's a little plastic fish on the end. Go Here to see all the other CT's layouts and Here to buy this beautiful and versatile kit.

Fathers Day Kit

This was our nature walk at Rancho San Rafael Park in May. Loved this photo on this layout.

Mom said she loved this photo of the three of us. We loved to watch TV with Dad.

Dad was always ready to help anyone who needed it especially with Car repairs. He was a genius mechanic. He made sure us girls never got taken advantage of at the auto repair shop.

Just love this wonderful kit for Fathers Day. Used a little of everything on my pages. I'm a little late posting this because we were out of town and just returned this evening. Go to Stacey's Blog and check out all the latest kits and layouts by all her CT's.

Ruby Slippers - Believe (1st Anniversary)

It will be one year on June 24th 2008 since I started doing digital scrap booking. I thought I would share my first two pages I made. I was hooked right from the start. As you can see I didn't know about shadows, erasing parts of element or how to do layers. I would delete a section until I got it in the right order. I've come a long way baby. LOL! I've learned so much about the computer and Internet but am learning something new everyday.
One of the girls, Kristie, in my on-line traditional scrap club sent out a link to a blog train and I jumped on board.
This was a blog train through DSO - Digi Scrap Addicts - Scrap Journal, A compilation of all the designers involved.
We all start somewhere. Laramie

Mini Golf in the Dark

This was the end of a very long day but a fun one. Both the kid's were old enough that they weren't napping any more and we stayed all day. We ended with another game of mini golf and they were so tired they could hardly finish. I was surprised when they wanted to play again after the sprint cars and thought for sure they would fall asleep on the way home. But they had to much fun talking about all the fun they had had that day.
Used this wonderful kit before from Studio Ziska - Scrapbook Graphics - Ocean Cloud, Font - Gigi.

You Play

We go to the fountains all the time in the summer because they are free. You two have so much fun and our daughter made great faces on this outing.
Did a challenge over at My Scrapbook Art so head over to check out my Scrap lift Challenge. You can see my inspiration for this page. Here
Kit used is a Collab from Scrap That Idea called Beach Hut, Fonts - Liorah BT and Footlight MT Light.

All You Need is Love

It was so cold but you wanted to try to fly your kite. You would just get it up and the wind would whip or slow and the kite would come crashing down. You were having so much fun but Mommy finally had to say it's to cold and we walked back home. Had fun playing with the frames in PSE and got some neat effects on this picture.
This is another freebie from DigiScrap Addicts - Seni Desings - SYTYCD - All You Need is Love
