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.

I am going to be a SUPER G!

My son and his bride, Crystal will be having a baby on or before September 8th of this year.
I want to be called "GG."  Since we are in an Olympic year, that would be...
SUPER G for all of you out there.



I am headed to a scrapbooking retreat for four days at Barren River Lodge/Resort here in Kentucky.
When I return, I will be posting some of my pages and tell some stories!

BTW, I cannot wait to spoil this baby!

Is Winter OVER, Yet?

Seriously?!  I have cabin fever with all of the cold weather, ice, snow, & wind making it colder than it actually is.  Usually this time of year we are already seeing the Crocus budding.  Ummm, not yet!
What is with that?!

So, I have been scrapping some warmer memories.







I am counting the days until SUMMER.  Until then, Valentine's Day is coming up and so is my Anniversary.
We plan on celebrating in Nashville.  I cannot wait to take some photos and share our fun.

Until then, stay warm and dry.
THINK SUMMER!

Random Scrappy for a GREAT CAUSE!

This past Saturday was great fun with wonderful fellowship, food, laughter, and scrappy fun!
It was a gorgeous day and we all had a wonderful time.  Our group was the last to leave.  We scrapped and created until the bewitching hour.  We did not waste a minute.  
I truly enjoyed myself and simply loved scrapping random photos.
These are always the best fun.
As usual...I brought more stuff than I used in creating my layouts.
This is always the case.

Without further ado;











I am thrilled that in March I will be attending a retreat for 3 nights and 4 days!
Wahooooooooooooo!!

The Chill is EVER winding...

Today is Brianna's first day back to school this week.  The windchill is still below zero but at this rate, she will not have a summer if "snow days" continue.  She and I have been keeping ourselves busy. 
 Although, cabin fever and the need to put my toes in the sand is a real dream.

I am getting really excited as I have a Crop for a Cure next weekend and in March I will be out of town 
 4 days for a Scrapbooking Retreat. 
 I always enjoy time away to create and giggle with other women that enjoy 
sharing their love of paper, glue, family, and memories.
It helps to have pretty paper as well.

I have a few layouts to post and then it is back in my studio for ME time.  
Alone.
(at least until 3:40 PM)



 The above layout was inspired by JUST G over at Studio Calico.
Her original layout was from 2009.  
Still a classic design and I love it.

 Above and below you will see more Christmas cards that I have kept.  I keep a special scrapbook for these types of pages.  I love great photos and appreciate friends and family that share their salutations with us through all special occasions. 
You will recognize this special family as it is the Owners of Studio Calico.
April and Greg were one of the first families we met when we moved to Bowling Green.
Their family has grown from 2 to 5 since we moved here.  I hear there is another Foster on the way.

Above, over exposed photos can work.  It is the story that counts.  At least, to me!

Stay warm and HAPPY Creating.
