I'm enjoying my free time!

It's so nice to have a little breather. I always love the week between Christmas and New Year.

I had some extra time this morning to scrap. HERE is the creation I came up with. I have not been posting any of my new pages and I decided that everything I create should be posted. It totally helps me keep track and I love looking back over layouts!

I created this for a challenge HERE. I always love challenges because they inspire me to create a layout that I wouldn't ever come up with on my own.

This is my sweet oldest son, Garrett, and his beautiful wife, Raylynn
So fun to scrap these photos in such a different way!

Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Anniversary Sweetie!

I can't believe that Brett and I have been married for twenty six years! It sounds like such a long time but really it has flown by.

In the salon today I got a special delivery - the most gorgeous flowers you have ever seen!

This is what I created for Brett's present.
We look like little kids in our wedding photos!
I am going to frame it and give it to him tonight. We are going to Park City to spend the weekend at the Coalition Lodge  I'm so excited!

Thanks for stopping by.

I got up early this morning and went for a 30 min bike ride. The sun was shining and I was enjoying the warmth on my face.  Gorgeous morning - gorgeous ride!!!

Then, out of the blue, a bug flies up my nose. I choked and sputtered and coughed. I almost crashed my bike.  How do you get a bug out of your nose/throat quickly? This was my dilemma! I've never had this happen before. I'm embarassed to say that my first reaction was a
farmer's blow 


As I sit here and type, I still feel as if little pieces of the bug are up my nose.


This is my wish for you today - As you're riding along the paths of life,
may you avoid any bugs up your nose!

Summer Fun

I did my first post at the Shabby Shoppe Blog HERE.

This is the video that went with that post!

We went to Raging Waters for Jessica's Birthday. Garrett made this compilation of our fun day.

Here is my "Party Til You Prune" layout.

Journaling - It has been a tradition in our family to go to Raging Waters each year for Jessica’s birthday. This year was no exception. Garrett decided that he would ride his bike there. Of course, we were concerned that he wouldn’t make it in good time but he actuallly rode the fourteen miles and arrived at the park at the same time as we did. (We had to stop at the store to pick up chicken and goodies for lunch.) We had a good laugh when we all arrived at the same time. Kelsey looked fabulous. She was wearing her cute little bikini. Jessica looked better than ever! She has lost so much weight this year. We invited Joy’s kids and we all had a blast cruising the lazy river and laughing our heads off in the wave pool. It was so nice to be together as a family. We vowed to do it more often this year. July 2010

My Son Jacob

School is out. The atmosphere in our house is much more relaxed.

The kids have been sleeping in.

One lazy morning last week I was scrapping and in walks Jacob. We started to work on a layout about him. He guided me every step of the way - from the journaling, to the ribbon on his name, to the brads in the three corners.

Here is what we came up with.
It's so fun to scrap with someone else. You get a whole new perspective.

We created this layout for the Product Spotlight over at
