Recent Projects

Life has been really hectic around here. You would think that now that Matt is living away from home and Jake is on his own, I would have all the time in the world to indulge in my paper crafts. But alas, I do not. I work a full time job and during the week after work I'm just too tired. On Saturdays I watch my grandson and on Sundays, I split my time between working in the garden, creating in the sun room, doing laundry and housework.

But I did find some time recently to do a little creating. Here are pictures of some recent projects. Hope you enjoy them.
I entered above layout in a sketch contest and came in second. Not bad for my first layout contest.
The Religious Milestones layout was completed in 2007 as part of an album for my husband.
Wanted was also completed in 2007 and added to my husband's album.

The layout below was done using the Paper Dolls Cartridge only. The initial idea came from a class at a lss. I purchased one of the left over kits and completed it at home with, of course, a few changes. I, like most people can not copy a layout completely. You know we always have to change something, LOL...


This is a little book I created for my Dad. He loved it and displays it on the coffee table for all to see.






Wow, looking back at some of those pictures is a bit scary, especially the last one that says 48. All I can say is "Who ME??"
