Let it Snow

During a heavy snowfall last winter I went out to take pictures. I think falling snow is so beautiful and peaceful. Anyway, I snapped away until my lens was so wet I couldn't see anymore. I really liked the shot of the rail fence, and I love these papers.
I used MME papers, AC Thickers, Prims jewels, Imaginese foam snowflakes, Lily Bee journal spot, and my slice.

Morgan & Nana

I've started working on some of the photos from Christmas 2008. I know it's summer, but I have a tendency to jump around, and I am no where near caught up, so I have all kinds of choices of subjects and years.
This is me and one of my grandaughters standing by the mechanical santa that all the kids have fun dancing with every year.
I used My Minds Eye and Cosmo Cricket papers, AC thickers (love that font), and an old Lil Davis chipboard word.

Dad's Plymouth

My dad bought this old plymouth car when I was in high school so that he could drive it in the local parades. He was so tickled with this car. We all thought it was cool because the doors opened like the one Bonnie and Clyde had.
I used Fancy Pants paper, Crate paper chipboard alphas, a MME journal spot, and a handmade journal spot.

You & Me

This is layout of my youngest grandaughter and I. My daughter stopped to see me at work one day, and I just happened to have my camera, so I got a couple of shots with me and the baby. She is just under 3 months old here.
She is the cutest baby, and of course I am not biased at all.
I used WeR Memory Keepers, Making Memories, and Pink Paislee papers, a Jenni Bowlin journal spot, and My little Yellow Bicycle stickers. I also used a couple of different pens to doodle and journal.

She's Winging

After we were done swimming at the pool, Morgan spied the swings and wanted to go 'winging'.
It didn't matter how fast or high. She loved it, but I kept it at a moderate pace, just to avoid an upset stomach on the ride home.
This layout is the second half of the page I posted last night. I used Cosmo Cricket and Making Memories paper, a Making Memories journaling piece, Sasafrass Lass alphas, and Doodlebug brads.

So Sweet

On the third day that the girls stayed with me, we went to the pool, and then they played on the slide and swings outside the pool area till they were chilled, even tho they didn't want to leave.
I just love this sweet photo of Morgan as she's swinging away.
I used Cosmo Cricket, Making Memories and Basic Grey papers, Sasafrass Lass alphas and Queen and Co brads.

At the Park

These were taken on one of our many trips to the park when my little grandaughters stayed with me for a few days. They would head for the slide in every park. This is one that we went to after swimming in the pool. It was getting chilly and they were shivering, but they didn't want to quit. They were having too much fun.

Count Your Blessings

For this layout, I used Graphic 45 and Prima papers, Prima flowers, Making Memories jeweled butterflys, Prima chipboard alphas,a Fancy Pants die cut, and Maya Road chipboard.

Cat's Meow

This is another Christmas 2008 layout. One of the older girls received this handmade oak bunkbed for their dolls, but Morgan decided to put her baby to sleep in it. She used her uncles Pgh Steelers terrible towels to cover it up, then she crawled in to give it a kiss. She is so cute. Two is a great age.
I used Dream Street papers, Basic Grey die cut, a Prima chipboard title, and a Fiskars punch.
