Boxes, Boxes, and more Boxes

Nicole just caught up on 365.  I’m pretty sure  a move overseas keeps one pretty busy. Can you imagine how much packing material would be involved in an overseas move.  I couldn’t believe she was able to send me the pix so soon.  So here are four new 365 pages. 

WW_SS8_ElemPrevI’m using Weeds and Wildflowers Sweet and Simple 8.

Adorable Connor

Happiness is having a grandson who is huggable, squeezable, more precious than gold.  Loveable, kissable, and two years old.


Have you checked out Gina's (Weeds and Wildflowers) new smart pages? They are just beautiful and oh so versatile. I saw the orange in the design and went straight to one of my much loved pictures of my grandson in his favorite orange shirt.

What goes step, bump, step, bump???


She came through her leg surgery with flying colors.  Here she is working on an activity board and listening to tunes on her iPod touch.


Yesterday she did some great digital designing.  Just look at this sweet cup that she made with the Skool Daze August collaboration from Digital Scrap Cafe.  This cup would made any beverage taste yummy.


cup-back I have been complaining so much about our super-cold summer, but I think I will refrain from such complaints.  The thermometer is registering at 98 degrees at the moment.  Thank goodness we bought a room air conditioner last year.  I hope you have a cool day.  Thanks for stopping by.

Bye Bye Baby

We just got a call from Nicole as she head to Europe.  I’m happy for her but so sad for us.  We know that she has been looking forward to her move, but Switzerland is a long way from Seattle.  She diligently sent me her August 365 pictures so I could get them up.  I love the Life 365 Sweet and Simple August kit. Who would guess that orange could be so striking.

July is done.  As I look at Nicole’s pictures, it really looks like she tried to make the pictures fit the July color scheme-can you believe how much blue and red are incorporated into the pages and pix!

Today, I did a feature on the Weeds and Wildflower's blog about using the Sweet and Simple Life Pages.  You can check it out here.
