Happy Birthday Dad *85*




My Dad recently turned 85 and we took him out to one of his favorite place....Maggiano's.  It was a wonderful day celebrating his milestone birthday so I just had to document the day on this page. I used this awesome sketch from Rochelle Spears' blog:


I am entering this page in Rochelle's June Rewind Sketch Challenge

Well it is late and I need to hit the sheets but I did get a chance to create a pretty girly page tonight and provided the rain will stop here in Florida long enough to photograph my page after work tomorrow, I will share it tomorrow night.  Thanks for stopping by.

Summer Coffee Lovers Bloghop #7



Back again with my 7th card of the bloghop. I am really enjoying myself, in case you haven't noticed.  This time I decided to use a rather patriotic color palette because the 4th of July is coming up and that is always one of the highlights of my summer....I just love cookouts and fireworks.

I used this color challenge from My Favorite Things.


I used their sentiment as well....I just love punny sentiments. You can see more details about their challenge HERE.  You still have plenty of time to whip up an entry yourself as there is still a week left in the challenge.



I used this great sketch from Kerry Urbatch for the Sunday Coffee Lovers Sip and Share feature on the blog:

I am entering this card in that sketch challenge also.

But....getting back to the Summer Coffee Lovers Bloghop -- I am really excited about this bloghop...there are 77 sponsors and TONS of prizes, inspiration and freebies. Just enter a summer themed, coffee themed card on THIS post for a chance to enter. And do not forget to check out all the other entries...many have blog candy.

Be Your Own Kind of Beautiful


I just spent 2 weeks with this beautiful little girl pictured in the above scrapbook page. And her sister, daddy, cousins and uncle.  It was glorious to see my family and make memories with them that will hopefully last a lifetime. So now I begin documenting them and this is the first page that I created. I took this picture just this past Tuesday at our resort in Disney World and I think it shows off my lil' Izzy's natural beauty and her inner sparkle as well.  I used PhotoPlay Like A Girl collection and this awesome sketch from Sketch-N-Scrap:


That is it for today....this was my third post of the day.  I have been busy in my scraproom since I got back from vacation.  But I have another layout planned out in my head so please check back with me tomorrow to see what I have been up to.
