Scrapping Easter with Quick Pages

Yes - she brightens up my every day!!! And, I can't stop scrapping her cute little pics!

Journaling reads: How do you stay clean on Easter Sunday 2010 when there is so much delicious chocolate around. With Brynn, we never quite figured it out. Love those gooey fingers and face.

This is Garrett and his Uncle Ash at our Easter Dinner. They are CRAZY

Another one of my sweet little Peyton.
Journaling reads: The time is flying by. You are growing up so fast. Yet you make us take a moment and soak in the joy of everyday. Your sweet, contagious grin. Your bright eyes. You remind us what is important in life; everyday laughter, love and living it up! Peyton’s photo taken on Easter Sunday 2010.

These layouts are quick pages. Sometimes I find QPs that are too great not to use! Plus they make scrapping so quick. Just add photos, a title, an element or two and some journaling.

VOILA- 4 Layouts DONE!!!

Finally posting!!!

I've scrapped 19 layouts this month but I haven't been posting all the great pages I create. What a shame!

Now's the time!!!

This is my sweet granddaughter Peyton!!! Journaling reads: You are full of joy and smiles- Sweet, Freespirited, Peyton. I made this with an awesome template from Katie Pertiet.

This is my youngest daughter, Breanna. Journaling reads: Every time the camera comes out you “strike a pose.” You seem to tilt your head to one side or another. We all chuckle when the model in you appears.

After creating this layout, I think I have GLEE on the brain.
Anyone who watched this weeks episode knows what I mean.

This layout is a lift of Yee Haw
I created it for the April Scraplift Challenge on Zoe Pearn's Team Blog HERE

I was browsing the Shabby Miss Jenn gallery and found this fabulous page. I bought the kit and recreated it! Total scraplifting!!!
Journaling reads: For Our 23rd wedding anniversary, we went on a Mexican Cruise: Just Brett and I. It helped make up for the trip we missed because we were unable to get our passports. We visited Cabo, Mazatlan, and Puerto Vallarta. We got to know each other again. I am so lucky to be married to “My Best Friend.”

I created this layout for my fantastic Son in Law's birthday

Journaling - You are the sweetest dad and husband in the world. You are working hard to get through medical school while achieving good grades. You are dedicated. You are the most intelligent person. We are so lucky to have you in our lives. What a great example you are to everyone. You are truly a wonderful man worth celebrating!
We love you Luke!!!

Garrett's birthday is coming up and I wanted to create a layout for his special day! I have the greatest oldest son!!!

That's five for tonight - I will post the rest tomorrow!

On Becoming a Nurse

I just completed this page for THIS CHALLENGE at My Digital Stash.
I know Kelsey won't like the picture I used but I specifically remember thinking how cute she looked in her scrubs. I wanted to capture that memory!

Journal - It was the first time I saw you in your scrubs. You look so cute in that light blue color with your long sleeve shirt underneath. You are a serious student as can be seen in this photo of you studying at the computer. I am so proud of you. You will be a nurse in no time!!!

My morning layout

I just bought a template from Designer Digitals that totally inspired me to scrap. Here's what I came up with this morning

Journaling - You didn’t want to let me do your hair for Easter Sunday. You wanted to make sure you rode with Dad to church and he was leaving. I quickly grabbed the blowdryer and your little white headband. You held still for two minutes while I round brushed and styled. You looked so cute that we had to spend the next two minutes taking a pic!

For credits go HERE

Hope you're having a great day! Mine started out pretty perfect!!!

Too Cute About Gifts

My dd Breanna loves birthdays and presents.

Journaling - You get excited whenever someone has a birthday. You love to think about what you want to give them. You are so happy to wrap everything up or put it in a gift bag. You like to make cards with your little name printed inside. You were more excited for Charles Luke’s third birthday presents than he was. The night before his birthday you insisted that we get started on the wrapping. You wanted to make sure things were perfect. You were very involved when he started unwrapping. You would have thought it was your birthday.

I made this layout for the GG Template Challenge HERE

I have never scrapped so much - 46 layouts in March

I have been looking over my March folder and I cannot believe how much I scrapped.

It all started with THIS CHALLENGE at Design House Digitals which I not only completed


March 8th through March 26th I scrapped and posted 31 incredible layouts in my DHD gallery HERE

Here are some of my favorites

1 - Challenges are great. They help you scrap layouts that you wouldn't otherwise think of doing.

2 - Sometimes a limited number of products helps a scrapper be more productive. See a Daily Digi post on this idea HERE

3 - Taxes and Housework do not get done when you are scrapping an average of 1.4 layouts a day - LOL!!!

Where's the Moon?

When I heard this funny story - I knew I had to scrap it

Charles Luke is almost three years old. He says the cutest things.

On Jacob’s birthday we celebrated at Brad and Melody’s house. It was time to go home and Charles wanted to stay. He got a little grouchy.

In an attempt to cheer Charles up, Garrett took him outside.

Garrett looked upward at the night sky. He said to Charles, “look at all the stars!” Charles’ eyes lit up immediately. The two of them counted the stars together. Garrett tried to help Charles count. Charles would say “one...” and wait for Garrett to finish counting for him.

Charles’ mood was improving.

As they looked around in the night sky they saw the lights of an airplane. Garrett said, “that’s not a star, is it Charles?” Charles responded and said, “that’s an ai-wo-plane.”

They continued studying the night sky together. The moon hadn’t come up yet. Garrett, in an attempt to outsmart the wisdom of an almost three-year old, asked, “Where’s the moon, Charles?” Charles looked around for only a moment before responding in his cute little kid voice “At my house?”

Garrett burst out laughing.

Sweet Treats

My friend Tiff loves digiscrapping as much as I do. She has been creating some incredible layouts lately. The layout below is a scraplift of her layout HERE

Brett does most of the cooking in our house. I am so lucky to have a guy who loves to cook! I got a craving for German Chocolate Cake. I still like to make something once in a while(mmmmm - sweets.) Breanna loves to help her Daddy and me in the kitchen (especially licking the beaters.) Here is a layout of our cooking adventures one Sunday afternoon.

These layouts were created with Scrappin' Daisies new kit "Sweet Treats"
