I'm still alive

In the last month I've been on a long weekend getaway to the island, one to Maryland & Virginia and I'm about to head upstate to Port Jervis. Combine all this with very intermittent internet service and that means I've barely been online. The good news is though I have lots of new photos to scrap and share so I should have an interesting fall ahead.

The Last

The challenge was to use questionairres to create an "about me" layout
I chose a few questions and entitled it "THE LAST". The paper is DCWV All Dressed U and the letters are K & CO. The embellishments are a circular paper clip and a stamped image that I received in a swap. I don't know who the stamp designer is just that it was a perfect match for the paper. It also fits the Lasting Memories Challenge #3

Memorial Day Weekend 2009

Have you ever sort of completed a project but knew there was one thing missing or something just wasn't right?
That was me with these two layouts

The first layout is of a family BBQ on the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend 2009. I had some great BBQ embellishments from different swaps which went great. I had to shift my photos around a bit (I love repositionable adhesive) to make space for the journaling pocket but this was one day where I had to include journaling. Since it was something so personal I wanted to make it private thus the tag and pocket. The fiber on the tag also met the July "fuzzy" challenge over at Scrappin n Chattin.

The second layout is of a picnic on Memorial Day with my kids ministry volunteer team. The circular close-ups looked great and I loved the handmade embellishments that added an extra special touch from various swaps. The paper and embellishments flowed together to create a terrific story of a fun day. The mini folder allowed me to keep my journaling hidden while still adding to the overall layout theme. I entered this layout for the poses challenge over at Scrappin n Chattin.
