FLOWERS challenge

  The second challenge at Scap & Play is a word challenge. I really enjoy these because I have to think outside the box a little  and really pay attention to my supplies.  My son and his family recently lost their precious family pet after 17 years. My DIL is having a very rough time coming to terms with it, I made this and framed it for her in memory of Scarlet.

Here goes....
L----Lime twist is the paper collection from MME
O-----orange flowers
W----wooden alphabet
E------epoxy sickers
S----Scarlet the title

 Thank you for stopping by.
I hope that you have an amazing Memorial Day, Please take a moment to remember those that paid the price for our freedom.

Jeff's Birthday

  Jeff just turned 60 and though life seems to be in fast play I could not let it pass without a celebration. All the family was here and a few close friends that can deal with our chaos! This is the first time that all the cousins got to meet Zade. What a fun day but few pictures as it was sooooo crazy. This is Olivia holding Zade for the first time. This is for the sketch challenge at Colorful Creations.

My take
Thank you for spending your time with me.
Have a truly wonderful day....take time to enjoy the little things!

Scrap and Play First Challenge

  I love Tammis scrappy style so was very excited when she decided to start the Scrap and Play challenge blog. May 1st was her first sketch challenge. I got my layout done immediately....blogging took a bit longer life just seems to go so fast sometimes.This was a day when I took my precious grandsons to the park. I had wanted to go some place "special" but the weather was iffy so we went to a small local park where I often walk. They had a blast and loved everything. Was really awesome to get to see my routine boring walking trail through the eyes of children. How often have a walked by this big sand hill and seen nothing extraordinary..they saw a great adventure. I am blessed to have my family with me so much but leaves little time for playing with paper! LOL
Without further rambling here is the sketch. 
I am in a yahoo group Scrappin and Chattin that does monthly challenges. One of the challenges this month was to use bokeh paper that was a new one for me but I really love the paper that I found. I love the subtleness  and can't wait to work with it again. So here is my take.
Thank you for stopping by. I hope your day is bursting with new discoveries!
