A Fun Scrapbook Page

This weekend I did another page in Allie's Freshman Scrapbook. I decided to try some water colors and dug out my sewing machine I got for Christmas. For inspiration, I used the Scraplift Challenge on SCS and cased Val's page HERE plus the CSI#124 where I picked butterflies, glitter and watercolor plus the required colors and a bit of glitter on my journaling.

In this picture, Allie and her "sisters" were getting ready to do some pumpkin carving - love the picture. I had Allie go through all the remaining pictures and tell me which ones she absolutely wanted me to include. I could see the end of the tunnel and was getting pretty excited. Then I realized I had not printed any of her Spring formal pictures. A few days later she announced she decided to start dating Jud (the guy I have always wanted her to date), took up paddle-boarding, went to the beach, went hiking.... so now it is looking like I have a lot more to go. LOL!



  1. Great page and I love the water colors on here. Alli looks gorgeous as usual. Congrats on Alli picking the guy you like to date. That doesn't happen too often. Can't wait to see more pages. Have a wonderful day.

  2. Your page is amazing! Alli is going to have a fabulous keepsake of her Freshman year at UAB that she'll treasure always.

  3. This is a fabulous layout, I love the stitched detail and your paint effect - beautiful photo as always.

  4. What a fun picture and a great job with the layout. Glad she is dating someone you approve of :)

  5. Great scrapbook page Nancy. It will be treasured for years to come.

  6. Love how you connected the colors! Fabulous layout and fun picture!

Brotherhood Wishes, a Paper Purse, and a Special Mug

Hello friends. No more fun travel or parade pictures - back to every day normal life.  On a positive note, I have been able to fit in some art. Hereis an art journal spread I finished this weekend. I am adding it to Alison's Summer Landscape challenge theme at **Art*Journal*Journey* .   I started the pages in my journal around July 4th after seeing Dina's stripes inspired Mixed Media challenge on and got as far as stamping some foliage at the bottom.  I was stuck after that, and I wasn't sure where to go with it next.  A few days later, I was clearing out some things in the craft room and ran across a Thomas Kinkade book I cut up and use in my Bible Journaling.  There was a picture of  the San Francisco Bridge and another of some mountains so I tore them out and added them to my page with Gesso representing some of the beautiful things in America and also Alison's countryside theme.  They did not blend in very well and I needed to alter them to wo

My Favorite Parade

Hello Friends! Hope you had a good weekend.  I look forward to this weekend every year because I love the Fourth of July Parade in Prattville.  It makes me feel like things are right with the world - it is a bit old fashioned, a bit innocent, a bit quirky (actually a whole lot quirky), and a lot of fun.  Anyone can be in the parade as long as you remotely look patriotic.  My kids used to ride their bikes in the parade when they were younger. I thought I would share a few pictures. The mayor and City Council had one of the first floats (by the way all the floats and cars throw candy, necklaces, and toys so the people watching are all paying close attention so they can catch the good stuff). Notice how the floats are really just trailers with a few decorations. This was one of my favorites - it was the sanitation department and they had all their candy in a toilet on the top of the truck - lol!  I am pretty sure it was tootsie rolls - lol again! The local judge - isn't she pretty?  

Hot Air Balloons, Santa Fe, and Watermelon

Hello friends. Posting Day Three from our New Mexico Trip.   When  I was 26, I was on a hot air baloon team.  Our lead pilot back then was awesome and was asked to do a lot of commercial flights and invitationals. My favorite experience was at an invitational in Telluride, Colorado.  Flying down the middle of that city was amazing, but flying around Albuquerque was always wonderful as well.  Anyway, I wanted my daughter to experience the special feeling of being in a hot air balloon in Albuquerque (the balloon capital of the world).  Her son was a bit afraid so he stayed with me. Allie was lucky to have the owner of Rainbow Ryders as her pilot and she met a wonderful woman who is an established travel blogger (I will try to get her contact info and share it because she was very interesting and I bet her blog is interesting too).  They hit it off really well, and she was so encouraging to Allie who wants to get into Social Media Marketing.  For the travel blog video they got to go insid
