I want to thank Mary Vogel for all the help she has given me on helping with my blog look...with all of her work with her own blog, Virtual Convention and everything else she does...she took the time to help me...Mary, as I always knew..YOU ARE THE BEST!!!!!!!! THANK YOU....(I am on the flooring bowing down to you..lol) I do not know where you find the time....
Sorry everyone, but it has been CRAZY around my house. My youngest son and family have been moving in to my house for the past few weeks and as of yesterday..they are moving out of my house...No problems between us...they are moving back to a house that belongs to her family that they will be renting. More room...etc..plus she grew up in the house so she really likes it. When they get all moved out and I get everything all together again, I can start playing again. Going to miss the kids and grandkids but I also missed my time alone. Don't get me wrong..I REALLY enjoyed them being here...but not enough room in my house for everyone. 3 small bedrooms, living room, dining/kitchen combo...it was TIGHT....lol. Anyway, I will get some layouts done and get them posted here asap. Have a great day...Gail
Here is a picture of Amelia (4 mos) and Elora (3yrs) that I fixed up for their Dad (my son Jeremy) for Father's Day. I used CTMH textured cardstock Bubblegum and some garage sale trim that is almost like the trim on Elora's dress. Then I put it in a 5x7 frame.

OOPS..they are not in order..SORRY..anyway, they are of my boys when they were little.....Thanks for looking..OOPS again..I don't know how to rotate them.

Thanks everyone for the comments...I not a scaredy cat anymore...heehee...this is actually a lot of fun....Have to get ready for work . When I get off from the store tonight I will work on some of the layouts we did at retreat. As soon as I get them done I will post them. Have a great day. Gail
Here is the layout I did for the retreat. Everything is CTMH. Paper from the Sweet Harmony Lv 2 Paper Packet and Stickease. Dimensional Alphas, Rhinestone Flowers from the Connection Club, and I used Black Exclusive ink for distressing and Amethyst on the Alphas. The other letters in Amelia Faith are from the Stickease. It is hard to see but I added Liquid Glass to the A and the F and a Rhinestone flower to the tip of the letters. The only cardstock used was for the base pages. Oh..and I also used the Summer Posies w/Rhinestone flowers in center and New England Ivy Ribbon on the stickease tags
I love being with my grandkids and other family members. I am an Independent Consultant for Close To My Heart (Scrapbook, Stamp,and Card Making)and I love it. I also work a couple of other jobs. I now live alone, my 2 boys have left the nest and I occasionally get the granddaughters to come stay with me.
