Memory Makin' Monday

Memories come in all ways.  When we were cleaning out my parents home this year we came across this photo that none of us kids had ever seen.  It is a picture of my mom (the baby) and her two brothers.  We also found the dress she is wearing in this picture.  What a treasure!!  Yep I took a picture of the dress and included it in the layout (on the other page)  A baby dress that was at least 88 years old if it was my mothers to begin with, but it looked like it had belonged to many before that.  It was all patched up and mended.  A memory I will always treasure,

FaNtAsTiC Friday

Today is Veterans Day.  I have a special Veteran I like to remember on this day.  This is a layout of my Dad's Army uniform and metals we found when we were cleaning out their home this year.  What a neat thing to find.  I took pictures of it all, and made a complete book about the life of my parents scanning in all the documents and old photo's.  I made the entire book with Studio J Using this Studio Scrapbooking is so easy and so fast and fun!!  Have you tried it?

Whooo Hooo Wednesday

When I first got my New Close to my heart Art Philosophy cricut cartridge, I was excited to try to make a few cards.  I had not used my cricut machine much.... so when I cut my first card, it was really small.  I had cut out a white oval 'card' only way to small.  As I went to toss it into the garbage I  HAD A THOUGHT.  Why not cut a black oval 'card' just a little smaller than the white one.  I created this little Halloween card out of a mistake.    I finished it off with letters cut out with the cartridge too.  Whoo Hoo
