A Lady in Waiting

Today I made a corresponding page to go with the Photo Op page I make yesterday.  Today’s page was part of quote contest.

Anticipation-this was Alex’s first trip to Disneyland. She waited so patiently during the Princess Lunch for the characters to make their way to our table.


I used the same kit, The Magic In You  by Band Geek Designs which is available at ScrapMatters.

Photo OP

The Magic In You by Band Geek Designs, is inspired by magical moments in life and the magic inside each of us. The fun and carefree colors in this kit will bring magic to your pages. You can get the kit here.


Last October the kids experienced magical moments when they met the Disney Princesses at a luncheon.

Did someone say Happy Meal??

The food industry, according to, has always been in the forefront when it was about advertising.  Look at these catchy slogans  used to get the food-lovers drooling. McDonald's came up with a slogan that said, "I’m lovin’ it".  It became hugely popular with the lovers of McDonald's burgers and fries.  They advertised their Happy Meal with a slogan, "Put a smile on". It really brought a million smiles on the faces of children around the world.

Alex and Connor have a completely different take on a Happy Meal here.


I used Splendid Fiins Super Hero series to make this page.  Too fun!!

I re-worked an old page yesterday using Blast Off by Down the Road Designs from ScrapMatters. I liked all the space stuff!

I hope your week is a blast!!!

Beach Beauty - GSO at ScrapMatters

I woke this morning to see that my Beach Beauty layout was selected as a gallery standout at ScrapMatters. Yay, yay, this is always such a boost when it happens. I love these photos of Alex frolicking at the beach.


To make this page, I used Sunburn Savvy by Erica Zane and the word art is from Wordart-Light and Breezy by Jopke Designs.



I hope your day is filled with sunshine.

Turn Your world Upside down

Each year the AP Psychology students design a t-shirt to promote their class. This year they used a photo of Dave wearing inversion goggles. These glasses literally turn your vision upside down.


It's science time! Whether it is the science fair, backyard experiments, homegrown crystals, or working in the lab, Hypothesis, by Plum Dumpling Designs is the perfect kit to scrap the questions in your life. Doodles include both the colored version and just the doodle.


Have a great day.

Brain Freeze

I made this page for a speed crap at ScrapMatters using Plum Dumpling Design’s I screamI Scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream! We love our ice cream around here and I'm sure you probably do too! I Scream is a kit to celebrate all things ice cream. It has a great primary color palette and lots of those cold treats like cups, cones, milk shakes, root beer floats and more! I Scream is a perfect kit to scrap those drippy, melty messes and those fond memories enjoying your frozen treats!


Connor has a classic case of “brain freeze” in this shot.  This kit was just perfect to capture this memory.


Thanks for stopping by.

More in the Store Monday with Jodie Lee

Jodie Lee has vintage overlays for us today.  These make beautiful additions to so many scrapping projects.  Today I used them on some travel pages and on a card.  You can get them here.


Here we are in Egypt.




Dave needed a birthday card for a friend who is a fellow social studies teacher.  The overlay was perfect for this project.


Thanks for taking a look.

One Month Later . . .

We’re back from our wonderful European vacation and I’m ready to get scrapping again.  It will probably take me a couple weeks just to get the vacation pictures into some semblance of order, so look forward to seeing them in the distant future.

For today, I have a gorgeous set of papers to show you from Carina Gardner at Jessica Carina has designed a wonderful series of Victoria papers. The set I used was Victoria Art Paper set 3.



This is one of my favorite photos of Alex.  Isn’t she just gorgeous in this photo!!!


Thanks for taking a look.
