Hello (ho, ho, ho),
Christmas is over but the Christmas spirit remains around here. Friends are coming to visit and that is AWESOME!
Hurrying up to get everything posted so that I am all ready to have fun when friends arrive!
Tim with family in SE KS.
We went to SE KS. My grandson went with us. My sis-in-law and her girls made us some awesome tasting and beautiful pies. I had to take pictures of them and add some fun stickers to the pictures and to PL cards. I also took advantage of some KS stickers that I had and some summer stickers on PL cards.
The top picture is Ethan (grandson) and his cousin. The far right slot has pics of two nieces with the lemon meringue pie. The bottom left pic is my sis-in-law and my sweet nephew. The 3rd small slot is the rhubarb pie. Finally, the last large slot is Tim, Ethan, and Brad riding in the back of the truck to the water hole. The kids all swam. Fun times!
That is it for this page.
Merry Christmas! I have this image on a flag outside. Love it!
Ho ho ho!
Hope you are ready for Christmas and enjoying the season! I still have presents to wrap but the cards are mailed, presents to be mailed are mailed, decorations are wrapped, and I think I have all the groceries needed for the Christmas food. I am doing pretty well (ok, we do have to finish our granddaughter’s vanity).
Today is my youngest son’s last day of high school. He won’t graduate until the spring but he doesn’t have to attend. I am happy and a wee bit sad about how fast time flies.
Now, on to PL.
Part III of PL week 30.
This is our time in KC before we went on to Wichita. Most of the pictures are at a park that that Brad went to as a kiddo, we took our kids, and now our grandkids. It is a lot of fun. We also have pics of our family at IHOP in the morning after the hotel visit. Finally, the last picture (pasted on a PL card) is of Tim at a skate park in KC. I also put a cute sticker above the picture. I added a PL card to journal on. I added a few cute stickers to that, too.
Such a great time!
Maybe I will finish week 30 before Christmas. It is a big week.
A fun part two to week 30.
Most of the slots are filled with pictures of the kids “excavating”. The large one on the right side of the top row has a clear acrylic “slide” in front of the picture that says “Good Times”. The bottom small slot is a picture of my daughter in law, me, and KS grandkids at the hotel swimming pool. The last slot on the page has a PL card that says “adore”. I added a gold heart and wrote “I” and “my family” around the heart. It turned out cute.
Part III tomorrow.
Starting a new week. It is a fun week which makes a lot of pages to the layout.
Part I of week 30.
We finally saw our KS kiddos. We met them at KC. We went to the T-Rex cafe. All of these pictures are from there. They have animated dinosaurs, a place for the kids to “excavate” and to look for stones, a restaurant, and a Build a Bear with mostly dinosaurs to build. Of course the grandkids got one. It was a fun time! I put an acrylic PL card that had a camera on it. I put an clear acrylic disc with a 30 on it. Finally, I added alpha letter stickers for the word “week”. A fun page!
The ending of week 29 of PL.
The last page of week 29 – finally!
We spent a day at the beach when I got back from DC before we went to KS. The second small slot has a clear acrylic card with a decoration around the edge in front of the picture. It says, “This magic moment”.
The top right slot is a PL card. The 3rd small slot is a PL journaling card that I wrote about all of the pictures. The last small slot has a picture of a gift that I got from my pal. I finally got it hung up.
On the bottom row is Diego after he got wrapped up in a shirt. 🙂 Then a picture of the Abs and me playing with our food.
That’s it. Tomorrow Week 30.
Hi friends, family and fellow scrappers!
I am always so excited for the weekend. This year we have so much to do before Christmas. We have committed to a project for our granddaughter that is a joint effort with my hubby and me. We have so little time together from his crazy work schedule that I am feeling a little pressured that it might not happen. I will post a picture after Christmas. I am excited but nervous about the time frame.
The second part of PL week 29.
This page shows pictures of us and the crowd (I wanted to show how big the crowd was) at the Christian event in Washington. We left early and ended up not coming back because the event was shut down early because of the heat. We ended up going to The Museum of American History. One of the displays was of all of the presidential candidates and of course I took a picture of the Trump one. We passed by Ford’s Theater – I took a picture of that.
On the bottom Left picture I put two pictures on a PL card. To make a clear definition I added a border sticker between the two. I did the same thing with the bottom small slot. I used a PL journaling card. I put a picture on 1/2 of it and journaled on the other half. I then added the border sticker.
That’s it for part II. Part III the next time I post.
Hello out there….
Back to PL after one day of traditional scrapping. I really want to do more traditional but I am so far behind on PL.
First part of PL week 29.
This is a start of the time when my Washington friend (use to be California friend) popped by my house to pick me up (along with three of her girls) to go to Washington DC for the Together 2016 event. It was kind of a Christian march on Washington. It was at the Washington monument area. It was so hot that we had to leave early to get lunch. They ended up cancelling the event while we were out for lunch because people were getting sick from the heat. It was still awesome!
The first picture is a selfie with all of us in the car. The second large picture is of the Washington monument. The first small pic is of a license tag that says QQQQQQ. It was strange so I took a picture. The second small picture is of the welcome to Washington DC sign. I saved the sheet from the hotel room. I put it in part of the large slot (along with a picture from the event) and then also in the 3rd small slot. In the 3rd small slot I mounted it on a PL card. I also attached the clear disc with the gold 29 and wrote the word “Week”. I also put on a sticker of a taxi. We took several taxis over the two days. We weren’t planning on it but it happened. The last small slot has a PL journaling card. I journaled about our trip on it. Finally, the last large picture is NOT a selfie pic. We actually had someone take a picture of all of us together in front of the monument.
That is it for the day.
I did a super quick traditional scrapbook layout for Matthew’s scrapbook. I found a perfect piece of paper at a garage sale this summer. I knew (sort of) what I wanted to do. I ended up with simple.
Matthew in two of his favorite superhero costumes (and swimming clothes).
I matted three pictures of Matthew in superhero costumes and then in swimming outfit. If you look you can see that his swimming outfit of choice is Batman on the top and Spiderman on the bottom. He loves superheros. This year at Halloween he was Thor. He is so much like his dad that way.
After matting the pictures I layered them on the page leaving as many Spidermans exposed as possible. I then matted a saying and adhered it to the page. I know that you can’t read the saying but it says, “You don’t raise heroes, you raise sons. And if you treat them like sons they’ll turn into heroes, even if it’s just in your own eyes”.
I think it turned out really super. 🙂
Back for more fun. I love scrapping and wish I had more time for it!
PL week 28. Sweet Absey’s birthday party.
This was a fun day for Absey Doodle. I put the week 28 clear disc on top of the empty space of a picture. I then wrote “week” and about the pictures with a slick writer pen on top of the picture. I also put a Happy Birthday sticker on the picture.
Besides the party we have a few pictures of Matthew and Grandpa putting the teeter totter, that we got Absey, together. There is a picture of them using it in the house. Finally there is a picture of Ben helping Matthew teeter totter when Abigail was through.
Fun day for a fun girl!
