Black Spots??

Connor went on a field trip this week to the fire station.  He had a question for the firemen. “Do you have a dog with black spots?”  They didn’t but we learned that in the old days, when horses pulled the fire trucks, dogs were used to protect the horses. The Dalmatian would take up position just off the side and towards the rear of a horse and run with them.


I made this page for my first ever speed scrap Thursday night at ScrapMatters.  It was fun and what a quick method to made a page.  I used Haynay’s, My Magical Place.  You can find this wonderful kit at ScrapMatters.


Thanks for stopping by.

Toot x Two

This has been a banner 24 hours.  Yesterday, I received notice from ScrapMatters that my Layout, Stolen Moment, had been selected as the layout of the day.  This morning I learned  that my layout, Hold My Hand has been featured as an inspirational example of everyday real life scrapbooking on today's Story Board at Log Your Memory!!

Stolen Moment

I used Timeless, the May collab for this layout. The template is by Fran B.



Connor and Laurie share a beautiful day last week in Hold My Hand.


For this layout I used 365 Project Popups No1 by Jopke van Dongen at Pixelpress and Captivated Visions scrappers bowl template.

Watch Me Grandma


Connor was showing me his best moves last weekend.  I was stuck on what to title the page and Dave gave me this idea. How many times do you hear that while playing with the kids???  I need to pick his mind more often!!  I used a free template, May 10th Template by Camijo and a free kit, Weekend Fun, Weekend Sun Newsletter Sampler by Simply J Studio and Haynay Designs.  Both are at ScrapMatters.
