Hooray for the red white and blue

 It is a linky party at Paper Issues.  I immediately wanted to do pictures of Adrienne and crew at the recent Braves game. I just love this picture of her with all her guys! I combined it with a scraplift Sunday also at Paper Isssues.
Here is the layout to lift
I LOVE it unfortunately this just totally kicked me.... I just could not get it to a point that I was happy..... And it was keeping me from moving forward with any projects..... Why do I fall in that trap??
   Here is my Red White and Blue layout!
Definitely will not go down as one of my favorites but It is behind me and I can move on! LOL hoping to learn from this funk and not fall into the trap so quickly any time soon.
  Hope today finds your mojo flowing!

Scapping Our Stash May Blog Hop

  I love using up my stash. It always gives me pleasure to find hidden treasure in my craft cave. I am currently unemployed so right now my stash is my friend! You should have arrived here from Kelly Jeans blog. If not you need to go back and check out her wonderful take on pocket pages!
 I recently took two of  my grandsons to the local animal sanctuary called Noahs Ark. It was truly a special day. They are homeschooled this year and will be attended school next year so I am trying to spend every moment I can with them . This day gave me many special memories to document.
I absolutely love the picture in the tree so it had to be front and center. They started climbing the tree to get to the peacocks that had flown up there. always fun to see a peacock fly! I used picmonkey to help me get my pictures to a 2x2 size.
    Products used... Recollections... Today Tomorrow and Forever 12x12

Still kicking along

  It just seems like I am spending less and less time in the craft cave. Currently all of my grandchildren are home schooled. Next year which in these parts begins August 5th, 3 of them will be attending school. This is going to drastically impact my life. And I must say this Grandma does not like change. So I am making every effort to spend EVERY minute I can with them. that being said I have lots of pictures that I can scrap while they are in school...sniff sniff...
  Paper Issues had a scrap and chat with a challenge on their facebook page last night. I made this layout for their mood board challenge. I used sketch # 80 from Sketch-N-Scrap. I have been going through older photos for a project I am working on. I found these from 2011 and decided to play with them. That is always fun for me since I generally am a current scrapper.
  Here is the sketch
And here is my take

Thank you for stopping by.
Hope today is filled with laughter and joy!
