Heritage Album Is Done!



I have finished the heritage album my mom wanted me to do for her brother! I have done a youtube video of it so I have some type of record of it being completed for myself. I am so glad it is done and I made my deadline which was Tuesday evening, although it has now changed to Thursday evening. Yeah me! I really did not like putting the stickers in the book my mom bought and tried to explain to her that these were not something I would but in a heritage album. The flourish stickers weren't too bad, however you can see I used grunge board flourishes and painted them brown. The Martha Stewart pansies weren't too bad either, but again, I would not have used them. The ladybug stickers were the worst, ugh! But mom wanted them in there so I put them in. So please tell me what you think good or bad and if you have any suggestions when I do my own 12x12 scrapbook pages. Or should I do mine similar to these? Thank you for looking!!!

Faces Of Dogs


Here is my project for the Scrappy Frogs Challenge Blog this month.  Our challenge was anything red!  And since I love my dogs, I decided to use them for my red challenge.  The paper is My Minds Eye Festive & Frost and Bazzill Dotted Swiss.  I cut the words with SCAL and the frames behind them were cut from my Cricut Imagine.  I also used a Martha Stewart punch and added Kaisercraft rhinestones to it in red and used another Martha Stewart punch for my borders.  I used my Epiphany Crafts Button Maker to make the button and used ribbon from my stash to make a couple of ribbons.  This project took me no time to do at all and is a wonderful addition to my scrapbook!

Heritage Book




My Mom asked me to do another heritage book for her brother who is visiting next week.  Although I have little time to do the book, it has been a scrapbooker's dream to work with all these heritage photos from my family going back to the 1800's and know their names too.  Apparently my mother has a whole treasure trove of these items that I am just learning about and I had to give her the whole lecture about documenting all of this and the stories before it all dies with her, as I would have had no clue who most of these people are, except my own grandparents, maybe.  So now I know what my great and great great grandmother look like.  I have had people ask me to show the pages when they are completed, so here are the first seven.  I apologize for the quality, as I have one week left to finish before the book is turned over to my Uncle, however I have scanned all the photos and will be doing scrapbook pages for myself and will have more time to take photos for everyone to see.  As it is, I took these with my iPhone and forgot to clean the lens...........ooppss!  So at least you can get an idea of what I am doing and now I need to get back to work.

Relay For Life 2011


So if you know me, you know I am a breast cancer survivor.  This evening (today happens to be my husband's birthday also-happy birthday baby!) I walked in my 6th Survivor Walk in the Relay For Life, which also marks the month of my 6th year of surviving breast cancer.  The Survivor reception was very nice.  We got ziti in a tomato sauce sprinkled with parmesan cheese, ceasar salad, and garlic bread for dinner and had a choice of dessert.  And our survivor speaker told us of her journey 20 years ago, fighting ovarian cancer.  Every year our t-shirts purple, however this year our t-shirts were sponsored by the American Cancer and their "Happy Birthday" campaign.  I am sure you have seen those commercials where they are singing "Happy Birthday" to all us survivors.  Every time I hear one of those commercials, I smile even though getting older is not the most thrilling thing with body parts just not quite the same as they were once upon a time..........lol!  However every birthday is a gift and every day a joy, even the bad ones.  So no matter the aches and the pains and no matter the frustations in every day life, each day is a gift.  Each day is to be lived and cherished.  And never forget to stop and smell the roses...........................
