Disney Album

Busy weekend creating a Disney Album using pictures from 1986 to 1997.

What fun to use another person's Layouts.  Check out Melinda Baggenstos (from Scrapbook Nook in Kent Washington) her LOs are worth a try.  Makes the page come together like a breeze and adds consistency with your album.


Here are a few pictures I was used.

Goodbye Seattle

Being gone from Southern California for four months was easy and hard.

Being away from everything 

  • you know 
  • you love
  • you understand 
is taxing and exciting at the same time.

I was on a two month which turned into a four month relocation assignment in the beautiful town of Mukilteo, Washington. I had an apartment, my craft supplies, a challenging assignment, and a great support system at home.

What I learned about myself is that I enjoy my day to day life in So. Cal.  Not to say that Mukilteo isn't a great place to venture out into, the sights are unbelievable, but being there without my husband and family makes the days seem to drag and nights even longer.

I found a few craft stores, met a few friends, and experienced the area and I am glad to be home, ready to spend the summer with my kids home from College and plan out my next design team applications.

Hey everyone come over and play this week at Let's Scrap

Here is this weeks sketch

Here is my take on the sketch.... a little hard for me to have this many pictures under the same theme so I used a page of Daily Junque, fancy cuts and here is my take

So come on over and play!!

DT Challenge #145 - WINNER

I was so excited to be able to share with you all my challenge, which is inspired by another passion many share – Cooking. Needless to say I am not the chef in this house, although my husband. With this passion of his we also share watching cooking shows, which brings me to my inspiration – Alton Brown. Alton Brown has a notorious way of using alternate products to cook. His has a major dislike of single purpose tools, which brings us to our challenge.
I challenge all to make a single or double page layout or even a card, sorry no digital LO’s will work, using items that are normally used to prepare food.

We had five lovely women enter this challenge.
1 - A LO entitled "Christmas Pearls"
2 - A LO entitled "Holding You"
3 - A LO entitled "Cupcake Love"
4 - A LO entitled "Sago Pudding"
5 - A LO entitled "Spaghetti Time"
Using the Random Number Generator the winner is #4 - AKA Sago Pudding by Evelene.

Let's Scrap Weekly Sketch

OK is this week's sketch

And here is my interpretation...All the papers are from my Cocoa Daisy's monthly kit.

This page is about when Brooke moved to U of A this Summer and drove her car named "JIXI".  So JIXI's new home is the parking garage at her new apartment complex called District on 5th.  

JIXI also travels that 1.5 miles to the campus where she is lucky to have a spot in a covered parking garage.

This has made JIXI very happy as she has always slept in the garage at home.
