Dad's 71st Birthday and Free QP

Have you seen Scrappin' Daisies new kit Pocket Full of Posies?

I scrapped this page with it!

Journaling: We wanted to do something special for Dad’s birthday. Stephanie and Liz were able to come into town on the 21st of October. We all got together for lunch downtown. We met at the Cafe Rio near Marie’s store so that she could join us. It was great to get together and visit. Afterwards, we went shopping at Smith’s Marketplace. It was so fun to gab and shop and enjoy each other’s company. It doesn’t seem possible that Dad is already 71 years old. He looks so great. We are hoping to have many more birthday lunches in the future. We love our Daddy!!! Birthdays are a great reason to get together. We don’t do it often enough.

I made this quickpage from my layout for all my digi-scrapping friends

Up To No Good

Scrappin' Daisies has a new kit out called "Up to No Good"
Here is a preview of the kit

This is my first layout. I can't stop scrapping my sweet new grand-daughter Peyton

This second layout is a total scraplift. The sad part about that is: "I can't remember where I saw the original layout!" I found it in my page ideas folder, so I'm unable to give kudos to the original creator. If this looks familiar, give me a shout so I can give you credit.

My scraplift started with a template I created -

I want to share this template with all my digiscrapping friends

What a great Wednesday!

Yes - it is my 43rd birthday! I have had a perfect day.

What made the day so cool?

Many friends and family called, texted and e-mailed greetings and birthday wishes
I didn't work much! I spent a few hours at the salon early this morning.
I went to lunch with Brett.
I took a nap with no interruptions.
I had a fabulous Rib-eye dinner with all my kids and grand-kids.
We finished the meal with Brett's homemade butter rum pecan ice cream.

I feel very content and blessed!

Birthdays are the best!!!

Braden got his first deer!

Our family loves to hunt.

Braden got a tag for a management buck. "What does that mean?" you may be wondering. It means that he has the opportunity to shoot a deer that is a three point on one side and a four point on the other.

And guess what - he got an awesome deer!

More on the story and pics coming soon!

This is what I have been working on

Since I know that my husband doesn't really read this blog, I decided to share.

I wanted to make an album for Brett for Christmas.

Scrapper's Guide was having a contest and I won an 8x11 shutterfly album. YIPPEE!!!

I decided to document our January-February trip to Hawaii.

Here is the cover page. Click on it to view it larger.
This page took me forever. I love the heart, but I'm not really sure I like the title. Any ideas?
