Whooo Loves You!!!

I have been trying to work on my daughters school scrapbooks.. Here is a page I did this week from this school year. She is in 6th grade this year.. Anything that has a owl or tree on it seems to be the hot thing this year.. I got this cute owl paper on the clearance rack at Michaels Craft store awhile back. I love the bright colors of it-the only thing that would make it better is if it was glitter paper-lol!! I threaded all my buttons of course.. I trimmed all the yellow and owl paper so it is laying on teal paper.. The red strips are a pack of strips I bought at Michaels also. I just hand made my little bows. The picture is of my daughter and her precious teacher-Mrs Starr and then the bottom one is of her class outside this fall during our annual Book Fair.. The page turned out good!!

Mother's Day & My 13th Anniversary

I took this yesterday of Kandis at my Dad's barn-Kandis loves to pose for a picture..

This is my Family-Roger-Me-Kandis-and my step son Clayton... This was taken in last August 2009 by my sister in law Yesterday my sweet daughter could not wait for me to get up. She had stayed up late the night before and planned the sweetest stuff for me for Mother's Day..My husband was gone to work-so it was just me and her all morning/afternoon.. She sung me a song by the Isaacs-it may be called 1/2 a day away from U?? Not sure-but she sounded so beautiful singing it to me-she put her whole heart into it..Then she had secretly painted me a rock for my flower garden. It said Mom with the O as a heart.. Then since she had not bought me any gifts she went in her room and picked me out stuff of hers and wrapped me up her stuff-I really wanted to cry but was trying not too.. A tiny bottle of lotion-a sweet card that says U are a blessing that I had given to her some time ago-a hersey bar out of her easter basket-and 4 coupons-a free body massage-a free clean car-a free pedicure-and a free clean the house.. Plus she gave me a huge foot rub and warmed up my neck thing for me. I got so much special treatment.. Plus she made me such a sweet mother's day card.. I am soooo blessed... I have a step son too - his name is Clayton and he gets to spend Mother's Day with his Mom of course but I love him too!!!

So Yesterday, May 9 2010, also was me and Roger's 13th wedding anniversary.. I am very blessed to have been married for such a long time.. I love Roger so much.. This was a difficult year for me and my husband was always right beside me to help support me.. We started our 12th anniversary last year on May 9th with a horrible flash flood-and my husband and my Dad are such take control guys. If it had not been for those 2 we would of totally lost our house . But this year we start out dry and even though the signs of the flood are still evident in our backyard-it proves as long as U stand together-U can get thru anything!!!! I can not wait to see what the next 13 years has in store for us!!!


This is a page I have been working on for a few days-it has been sitting on my scrapbooking table and I would do a little thing here and a little thing there.. I seen this page in one of my recent scrapbooking magazines-Not sure if it was creating keepsakes or scrapbooks etcs. BUT when I seen they had used this TWEEN rub-on that I already had I had to make this page asap. Her journaling even matched my pictures to a T. hehe.. one thing I have to have on all my pages but something I dont feel I am very good at-shew!! I struggle to put down in words what I want to say so bad.. These pictures were taken this fall by Wendy Baisden These are my favorite pictures I think she has ever taken of her-with her homecoming pictures running in a close 2nd.. I made my pink flower with my snow angel glimmermist-it was creme to start with-i love the way it turned out =such a pretty pink. I got the journaling card at my friends local scrapbook store, the Open Book. This is my daughter in her volleyball jersey and her cheerleading warm-up. She is only in 6th Grade but these pictures make her look so much older I think.. I love the way the page turned out.. My girl is truely my heart...
Hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day!!!

You and Me

Me and husband are about to celebrate our 13th wedding anniversary on May 9th-and so I scrapbooked this older picture of me and him from way back. I am thinking this was taken somewhere close to 2003. Let me give everyone a word of advice-make sure u write on the back of pictures the date of when u took the pictures.. As I start to scrapbook older pictures I struggle to remember when they are. Even only being married 13 year-It it hard to remember the years on these.. The pretty you+me I got at Michael's off a clearance rack. I made the heart out of jewels my self. Super easy and simple page.. try it out!!

Fun Colorful page. This is my cousin and one of my very best friends-Steff. This is us on Black Friday out being goofy early n the morning.. Tons of bright pretty colored paper all layer up and inked. Sowed 1 strip one the page. A couple big flowers and then some different colored buttons. I used a rub on to journal alittle on. I had to use one of my jewel titles of course.. I used the Tim Holtz mini stapler to put my polka dotted ribbon down. That thing is the bomb-I used Wendy's but I so gotta get me one very very soon.. it is the next thing on my list .. I used one of my mini new butterflys on my flower.. A lot going on this page.. but I love it!!!

Enjoy Page

Another Cute page I got to make. I have been wanting to do a page with the flags for awhile-it seems to be what U are seeing a lot lately.. Love this cute little bird me and Wendy made with our cuttlebug machine.. Had to add some jewels of course.. It's never complete without them. This is my daughter of course in Oct of 2009 -the 1st little photo shoot we had after I got my Nikon D80 camera...

My National Scrapbooking Day Pages

I hadnt planned anything for National Scrapbooking Day but at the last minute my friend Wendy decided to come to my house and scrapbook with me late.. It was a fun change becuz' we usually scrapbook at her house with her huge room full of supplies. I finally had a chance to share a few things from my stash-it was FUN... We have been playing out pages from some scrapbooking trends magazines.. Always nice to get the juices flowing with ideas from magazines..
My 1st page is my daughter and my husband(Daddy). I might have went a little over board with the jewels but hey-bling can only make it look better..I got tons of those jewel clusters at Michaels on clearance the other day-so I stocked up on them in all colors. Love my felt green thickers. I have been journaling a lot lately around my edges-really liking the way it looks..
This page is of my husband, Roger and his Daddy, Roger Lee. They both have bees-so we both have lots of bee swarms.. Here is one they captured at my house last spring. I used glimmermist on my Big chipboard B-in forest green. I used my felt green thickers again-lovin that color. I got those pretty jewel burst at CKC in Louisville in tons of different colors in Feb.. Then I just got my cute lil bees at Michaels for 50 cents the other day on Clearance too-dont u just love a sale!!
This one is of my husband on a train at work one day back in April 2004. He is a Engineer for N&S Railroad but was working fireman this day. A man was out taking pictures of trains one day and asked these guys if he could take their picture-and he took it and mailed us this 5X7...It is great.. Very simple page of just layering paper over paper. I got these cute lil screw brads at CKC in Charlotte or Louisville last year.. I had to take pictures of most of these pages -mostly becuz they were so thick.. but this one becuz the strips were just not matching up at all..
This last one is of my daughter back in April 2006. This was her 1st trip ever to build a bear. I got this great tree CKC also.. Also got this stencil to this owl i used. Then of course everything looks way better with stickles.. just incase U want to copy this page-my pictures and pattern paper were 3X4 inches.. I seen this page made somewhere-but the squares where a lot smaller. I love how I was able to use 3 pictures on this.I have had these pictures to scrapbook a long time..
So I hope everyone else got to scrap some on NSD-if not-never too late to catch up!!

Messer Girls

Here is a page of my daughter and her 1st cousins in 2006 and then in 2009. What a difference 3 yrs make.. I hadn't sowed in awhile so we got the sowing stuff out for this page.. We used yet another page out of one of the scrapbooking trends magazines as our example.. I am in love with everything on this page.. I am gonna start sowing some more by hand.. I just got a bunch of those jewel clusters the other day too.. So I was excited to put those on...
Happy National Scrapbooking Day Everyone!!
