Hello, friends.  Today I am scrapbooking a picture of my son graduating from 8th grade.  

This was a great day, not only because it represented a step towards adulthood, but also because he willing put on a collared shirt and tie!  Doesn't he look just like his dad?  I love seeing his face in this picture.  Right now he is participating in "No Shave November".  I guess that is a thing in high school.  He practically has a beard!  That makes me think...I should take a picture for a scrapbook page.

Thanks for stopping by!

Meet Me by Nikki Beach

It's time for another scrapbooking challenge over at Sketches In Thyme.  I decided to use photos of my favorite place, Nikki Beach.  Nikki Beach is a beautiful seaside place on the french island, St. Barthelemy.  With the warm ocean steps away, delicious food, a wide selection of champagne, and a great deejay, what more could you ask for?  

I just love that this week's sketch challenge included multiple pictures.  Anytime I can add three or more photos to a page is a fun challenge for me.  Here's the original sketch:

Don't forget to link up your pages at Sketches in Thyme, so that you are entered to win a prize!
Happy Scrapping!

This is as good as it gets.

Good morning, friends.  Today I have a layout featuring my two darling children standing in front of our Christmas tree last year.  Although we often like to travel during the holidays, we decided to stay home last year.  It was such a really wonderful time and allowed us to spend lots of quality time together and focus on one another.  Just looking at this photo of them makes me feel so happy :)  This  year I am going to try to record all the fun by doing a December Daily mini album.  (Thank you Stacy for encouraging me to make one.)  

The card on the left reads, "Dear Santa, I don't need anything. I already have an amazing family and beautiful life."  I am so very blessed. Life IS beautiful!

Have a great day!

Give Thanks

One of my favorite things to do in Fall, is to attend Scrap Society's Give Thanks crop with the Scrapbook Divas.  We have a blast chatting, playing games, and of course, scrapbooking.  I just love the turkey leg headbands that we all wore that day.  One of my besties, Stacy, got one for everyone.  So funny! This layout is of last year's crop.  You can see the schedule of events on the right side of the layout.  The turkey dinner was amazing! The little tag at the bottom of the layout was a make-and-take that we created that day.

Now that last year's layout is done I need to get to work on this year's photos.  They make include wearing a turkey costume...LOL. Hope you all are having a lovely day!
