More layouts to share

I made a few more layouts over the weekend that I wanted to share

This is a photo of two of my nephews that I took a couple months ago when I was babysitting. I love how Sutton is trying to grab Lincoln's hand. I have a feeling that they will spend alot of time together as they get older.

This is me on top of the green monster at Fenway Park when we went there in October. I cut the edge of the border to represent grass from the outfield.

These are photos of the kids the day we went to Cousin Logan's football game. Logan is a senior in high school and a captain on his football team. The boys just worship him and he is always good to take the time to listen to their questions and play with them.

This is my new roommate Finn......he is pretty cute when he isn't biting me :-)

Thanks for looking!!! Have an online crop coming up this weekend so I am sure I will be back next week with ALOT more layouts to share.

Have a great rest of the week!!!

I actually scrapped!!!

WOW...I actually got some scrapping done this weekend and it was so fun. I love when the creative juices start to flow. I will post the others later this week, but I wanted to get this one posted because it is my favorite. I made this layout for two different challenges. First for a sketch challenge on the Bo Bunny blog and secondly for the Digi CT Reveal Challenge (monocromatic) at A Cherry on Top.

I took this photo of my nephew a couple of months ago and as soon as I saw it, I knew I had to pair it with one of my favorite bible verses. It has special meaning because it was the basis for one of the first solos I sang in church as a teen. And it is a message that I need to be reminded of often....follow god and he will light your way. I should frame it and hang it by my desk as a daily reminder.

THANKS for looking. Hope you all have a great week!!!

A challenge for 2010

I had to come back and tell you about a challenge that I am really looking forward to in 2010. is doing a year long challenge called "My Lifetime Story" and it is all about ourselves. There will be a challenge posted every Tuesday which will help you tell the story of your life. My Grandma Hanson passed away in 1992. Now that I am an older adult I wish I knew some of her she met my grandpa, what life was like when she was a child, etc. Now I have the opportunity to leave my story for future generations.

If this sounds like something you would be interested in, head over to ( and check out the challenge in the forums. There is a list of photos to start rounding up for the first three months of challenges. Don't worry if you don't have photos, you can always journal your story or maybe you can find an online image that would tell the story for you.

Hope to see you there!!!!

Wow I have been gone a long time.

Wow...I can't believe that I haven't posted anything since September, but I guess I haven't really scrapped since then either. Scrapping has become an interesting challenge because of my new roommate. Meet Fineas, Finn for short.

Finn and I have adventures almost every night. He was cute and cuddly when I got him at 7 weeks. He is still cute and cuddly when he wants to be, but he can also be the meanest most hardheaded cat I have ever met. I have many scratches and bite marks on my hands, arms and feet. He especially likes to attack me when we get ready to go to bed at night. And there is NOTHING in this house that he hasn't explored and started chewing on. If it is within his reach, he considers it his own. But don't get me wrong....I love having him around. It is such a warm feeling to come home and have him greet me at the door. It is just nice to have another body around here.

Aside from Finn, the highlight of October was our trip to Boston for my cousin's wedding. It was Ethan and Kellan's first airplane ride. While Kellan was scared, Ethan was all over it. And by the time we got in the air, Kellan relaxed and loved it too. But the highlight of the trip for me was the tour of Fenway Park!!! I LOVE baseball and the Red Sox are my second favorite time, behind the Twins of course. It was a great tour and the best part was standing on top of the Green Monster. Now when I watch the games, I can say I have been there....I love that.

Here is a photo of me on the green monster:

Ignore the stupid look on my face :-)

Anyway, working on christmas projects and trying to get some scrapping time in, so I hope to be back more frequently!!
