Forty years and counting…

I’m back with another digi-page on this cloudy, lazy Sunday. After all, what better way to continue the ongoing project of flattening and broadening my butt than to sit at the computer for a few more hours documenting memories.

This past February (wow, was it 5 months ago?!!) my dad and stepmom celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary. It is such a blessing to see how much they love each other, how they take care of each other, and just how silly they still are with each other after all these years. Aren’t they adorable?

While we’re at it, I’m not sure I showed you the cake I made for the occasion. It was my first attempt (and probably my last) at brushstroke embroidery on fondant, so please be kind. I don’t even remember what kind of cake or filling it was.


OK, I need to get up and move around a little now before my feet fall asleep. Enjoy what’s left of the weekend!


All 4 of us

Just popping in with another digi-page. See, I can scrap something other than my sweet granddaughter!

This was taken up at my dad’s house last month. There are precious few times that the four of us siblings are in the same place any more, but this was one of them. Gotta preserve it for history! (Please note for the record that at 5’7”-ish, I am the shortest of the bunch.)

It’s hard work staying cool!

At least that’s how my granddaughter makes it look! She’s always so serious about everything, but I’m sure she was having fun in her little yellow bikini!at-the-lake-web

The colors in this layout were inspired by the recent heat wave we experienced here in the northeast. Brutal, I tell ya!

Yes, I really do create layouts with subjects besides this cutie. I did one about my youngest daughter last weekend, but I can’t show it to you yet… Soon.

Supplies: Template is a FB Freebie from Digital Scrapbook Ingredients that coordinates with the Beautiful You kit; Papers and elements are from the Love Me Some Summer collection by Mandy King, available at Gotta Pixel.

Keep cool!
