Just the Two of Us

It is rare to have pictures of Trace and I together, since one of us is always holding the camera. The benefit of having a teenage son is that he was able to watch the twins while we went to dinner in Hot Springs and took a picture of us before we left.

Piece of My Heart

Here is a LO of me and my oldest son. As a teenager, good pictures of him are few and far between. especially ones with me in them!

Sweet Victory

I have managed to pass on my love of chocolate to my DS Joshua. So, when it was time to design his car for the Awana Grand Prix, he opted to make a Hershey bar! This LO is based on a sketch from Sketchy Thursdays.

All Because Two People Fell In Love

I love using song titles on my pages, so when I saw this tag in my BoBunny Timepiece collection I was very excited! Here is one of the many amazing pics taken by Tabitha of Triplett Photography. Of course being the good friend that she is, she thoroughly enjoyed ordering me around to pose for pics (reflected in my journaling). I also reused some tissue paper from a gift, sprayed it with Glimmer Mist, inked it and shaped it into a flower behind the clock. This LO is based on a sketch from Liz Chidester she made for Memorable Seasons.

Another Branch

We have a lot of family - some share DNA with us, but many do not! Here is a LO of some of the many girls in our extended family. Since we have four boys, I have to scrap everyone else's kids to get my girl scrapbooking fix! This LO is based on a sketch by Liz over at The Scrappiest that she designed for Sweet Peach Crop Shop's Anniversary celebration. I am a Bo Bunny addict, so I used their Time Piece collection for this page.

At the Zoo

I never seem to manage to scrap my zoo pictures, but I decided to tackle a few for a challenge to use animals in your LO over at Scrap Friendzy. These pics were taken at the Caldwell Zoo in Tyler, TX.  This LO is also a scraplift from a LO by Caroline the member of the month over at Memorable Seasons.

Sweet Child of Mine

We actually managed to have a family photo shoot back in the fall with Tabitha at Triplett Photography. She got this beautiful picture of Justyn after he insisted on climbing up in a tree! I love Guns n' Roses so when I came upon a "musical" challenge - I had to use their lyrics as my title. Also, out of the four boys, he is definitely the "Sweet" one. It is based on a sketch from Stuck on U Sketches.

My Joy

While completing challenges over at Scrap Friendzy, I came across one to use the theme "My Joy". It was a no-brainer for my to do a LO about my children - they are my joy. I love that I can experience the world all over again through their eyes - what greater joy can there be in life!? This LO is base on a sketch from Sketchy Thursdays.


I have four boys that keep me very busy, unfortunately I have no girls, which puts a serious damper on my scrapbooking at times! Every opportunity I get I take pics of my niece and friends daughters'.  This is a LO of my DH and my niece when she stayed with us for a couple days. It is based on a sketch from Liz over at The Scrappiest.
