Spring Break trip 2003

This is a 2 page layout that I received in a swap.  I went thru my pictures to find ones that match the pages that I got in the swap.  Thought this layout worked well with these pictures.  This is another trip to the coast.  This is my daughter and 2 of her best friends.  Their mom, the girls and I went somewhere for the day every springbreak.

Hi, I am adding some photos from our vacation. Hope you enjoy. This is at a pullout on the Glenn hwy, between GlennAllen and Anchorage, Alaska.
What a thunderstorm!

This is Julia and Clint doing the "wedding" photos. The one with the 5 girls is the Maid of Honor, Matron of Honor and the bridesmaids.

Here is my daughter, Julia and her other half, Clint. This is Clint's first sight of Julia in her wedding dress. They sure are cute.

This is our 2008 2500 Dodge Quad deisel pickup, 2010 Arctic Fox camper and small cargo trailer, that we went to Alaska in. We are pulled over on the Fraser canyon in BC.
I will be scrapping this trip and my daughters wedding soon.

I am back from the wedding and vacation

Man, have I been off this for awhile. Daughters wedding went very well. Then Hubby and I went on vacation for 6weeks. Getting back into the groove.

I have a scrapbook day planned for next weekend, Saturday, the 19th. 11-5. Just come work on you own projects. I will have a small make and take set up.

Wednesday, May 20, 2009

Still haven't posted anything new. Please be patient with me. The wedding is in countdown mode. I have added a new gadget. I may still figure out all the blog stuff.

The gadget is "The Next Level". Their launch day is June 1st, with blog candy prizes.

Thanks for looking.

I did a 18 pg layout workshop this past weekend. Had only 2 students. I did a set along with a very 1st timer of anything scrapbooking/papercrafting. And a girlfriend came with her 3 week old.
We got the workshop done in 5 hours with a few distractions here and there. Still very fun.

Hi, I have been busy. Will be posting new pictures soon. Update on my daughters wedding invites, we had designed what we wanted and then was going to have a print shop print them. Went to 6 different shops and no one could print them up and be true to the colors. So we are doing all 300 of them by hand. That is invites and rsvps. Plus, I am making the 3 flower girls dresses. Will post some pictures of scrapbooking or cards soon.
