Mademoiselle from Paris


Lilpruneau, from Digital Scrap Cafe,  has a lovely new kit for you called Mademoiselle from Paris.pv%20copie-04

Paris-2002They talk about Paris being La Vie en Rose – meaning life through rose colored glasses.  Going to Paris with my daughter taught me that the phrase was true.  We had a lovely trip seeing all of Paris – including the Eiffel Tower and the Luxembourg Gardens.  Paris in the springtime – a wonderful, wonderful trip!


Head on over to her Liliblog blog and pick up a free quick page. Thanks for stopping by.

Digging for Treasure

This blogging every day is so un-me! LOL.  I have had so many opportunities of late to create pages.  It has been fun-time consuming-but fun.  I’m not getting much done at home, besides scrapbooking, but as Dave says, “It’s a tough job, but somebody has to do it.”

Today’s page is from a new kit by Droopette, from Two Little Pixels.  It is called Into the Deep and it is brim full of darling elements and gorgeous papers.


Alex and Connor are digging for treasure in these shots that were taken at Alki beach by Jamie Sayer.digging-for-treasure

Happy Thursday.

Is Gibberish a Country?

Last winter we were enjoying another fine meal at Laurie and Terry’s house.  While we were trying to converse, Alex was talking a mile a minute.  Laurie stopped her and said, Alex, you are just talking gibberish.

Alex responded, “Is Gibberish a country?”

gibberish low res

I used Weeds and Wildflowers, 9930 - J'Aime Chocolat by Patricia Christiansen, Being Me Papers by Gina Marie Huff, and Going Away Collection KPertiet.

I’m off to other uncharted regions. (like my cleaning closet!!)

Carefree Cousins

This photo has lived on my desktop for months.  I loved it but it was over exposed, so I was not quite sure what I would create with it. I started playing around with it this morning and I was pretty happy with the results.

Cousins, Ellen and Alex enjoyed each other’s company out on Laurie’s deck back in July of 2008.
