I chose to scrap this photo of Ollie and Santa from Christmas 2018.

LM 498 - 3 Things - Plaid, tag, hearts


This week at Lasting Memories, our challenge is to use these 3 things on your layout: plain or gingham paper, hearts and a tag.

I created this layout using photos from my husband's 35th birthday.  He doesn't like to make a big fuss for birthdays, but I surprised him with giant balloons.  I also went to the bakery that we used to love near our old house (45 mins away).  I got him our favorite cake - YUM!

LM 497 - 3 things - Washi, stripes, stars

This week at Lasting Memories, our challenge is to use these 3 things on your layout: washi tape, stripes and stars.

This is the opening page for my 2019 album, so that's why there's no journaling.  I thought about using a solid colored background, but I'm glad I went with this one that had the painted stripes on the back.  I've been dying to use this gorgeous washi I found at Tuesday Morning and I absolutely love how this page turned out. 

I took Paige Evan's virtual class on Scrapbook.com.  She created a layout using washi tape like this and it really inspired this layout!

May Stick it Down

Here's the May sketch for Stick it Down, created by yours truly.  




I created a layout using photos from my nephew's christening.  I am honored to be selected as his godmother.  Spencer was a year and a half in these photos, though he looks like a 4 year old.  I bought him his cute little white suit and I think I had to buy size 4T!  He's a big boy!
