Never Chronological...

I am a scrapper who scrapbooks "everyday" moments rather than just special events or themes.  I simply enjoy telling the story and journaling is very important to me.
 
 
I never scrap in chronological order either.  I have seen many scrappers get caught up in "catching up" and scrapbooking by year.  I think it can take the joy out of why we/I enjoy creating and playing with patterned paper and glue.
 
 
 
Her are a few more...

Documenting Moments...

Scrapbooking is so rewarding and has a therapeutic way of calming ones soul.
I have so many scrapbooks that I may have rent a climate controlled store room.
 
No joke!
 





 
On a side note:  I really miss the Scrappy Weekends at Archiver's.  That was one of my most favorite stores to hang out once a month.  I met great friends and enjoyed sharing creative ideas.
It seems the Scrapbooking community has gotten smaller in the past few years.
Everyone is really into digital.  I still like feeling the paper in my hands.
Addicted to Scissors, I AM!

Moments in ones life...

The one picture layout. I used to not like them but now I have more room to tell the story.  So, they have become a favorite to create.  I really like sharing my layouts with others.  However, the real reason I scrapbook is that I have a great fear of developing dementia.  It tends to run in my family.  While it seems to happen in the 8th decade of life, it still scares me.  I want to look at my books and read them as if they are a novel of life.  My life.  Nothing is greater than moments in ones life.
 
 
Here are a few that have been documented.
 
 





 
Life is completely rich when you share it with people that are wonderful.  Everyday.

The Catching Up Continues...

Totally and completely in love with my Silhouette Cameo.  I am still learning many different things with it and really enjoy how versatile it is.
 
 
When taking the photos of my layouts, some are a little dark or of centered.  We have had so much rain here lately, I have been challenged with really good natural lighting.
 
 
However, still love my layouts.

It is a new year! What took me so long?

I know it has taken me a great while to return to my blog.  I have mounds of scrapbook layouts to upload and will hope to get this done within the next few weeks or so. I have over 100 layouts since last posting.  Yes, that is right! 
Over ONE HUNDRED.
 
 
So, without further ado...
 








 
These are being uploaded in no particular order.  As you can see, journaling is a big deal to me.
Keep checking back and hope to get everything updated here on my blog.
Thanks for sticking with me!

Yes, I am still here. Long time no post, huh?

My world is pretty busy here lately.  Vacations, school beginning again, scrapbooking, and the most exciting news...becoming a grandmother for the first time!  I will be called GiGi.  So, excited.  Laila Frances was born just in time for Brian (Pop) and I (GiGI) to celebrate our first Grandparents Day.  

I cannot wait to start scrapping pages of my grand baby.  Until then, here are just a few of about 35 scrappy pages I have completed this Summer.

Hope to catch up soon!









It is FOOTBALL season, so...you know the drill.  I may or may not have time to post.  I really must get back into the swing of things.  Blogging is just not what it used to be, huh?!

Toodles!

Warm Weather, Mother's Day, it is beginning to look a lot like SUMMER!

Hard to believe time has gotten away from me.  I had a glorious Mother's Day and I anticipate next year to be even greater with a new grandbaby on the way.

I recently had the opportunity to scrap a bit.

I am sure you will recognize my "girls!"
Summer is almost here and we plan on heading to Georgia for camping on Memorial Day weekend.
Until then,

CIAO!




What a great time to loving LIFE!

Lots of SCRAPPY, Little Sleepy!

I had a BALL at the Spring Scrapbook Retreat at Barren River State Lodge here in Kentucky.

Here are a few of my layouts and Photos of my SCRAPPY Crew!

WARNING:  HEAVY PHOTOS!

























I had the best time!  We did not get much sleep at all.  We ate too much and and giggled ourselves silly.

That's the best time, when you come home and crash on the couch.
