Valentine's Scrapbook Pages

I had a fun crafting adventure with my Sister Saturday.  We made up a challenge where we had to create two scrapbook pages.  One had to have pictures of our elusive camera-shy husbands (strangely enough they are both named Kenny... lol), and the other had to have our parents on the page.  The theme had to be love since it was Valentine's weekend, and one page had to have something metallic (for Valerie's Heavy Metal challenge at **ART*JOURNAL*JOURNEY* of course).  

Here is my tribute to my outdoorsman.  The papers are Stamperia Forest which fits my hubby as you can see from this deer picture from last year.  The picture of us together was from my daughter's wedding 5 years ago.  I had to hunt for pictures hard because he is VERY camera shy and you have to catch him at just the right moment. 

Here is the other page in my layout.  My Mom and Pop are in the bottom picture and my husband is in the other three along with pictures of two of my Grandsons.  The picture of Mom and Pop has both my daughters in it - that was 7 years ago....time flies....

Thanks for visiting.  I really appreciate it, and I hope you had a lovely Valentines Day!




  1. I love seeing these photos of your family. What a lovely family it looks like too. What is about husband's and photos? My husband will sit for a photo, but he won't smile, and then complains how bad the pictures are. Glad you added some metal and linked these up to Valerie's challenge at Art Journal Journey. Thanks. And hope all is well and you didn't get any ice like the news was showing. Hugs-ERika

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
