Design Team Day!!

Challenge:   Mini Album
June 25 - July 1, 2013

I have this fabulous mini album for you today.  I love this little Bo Bunny album. Several years ago I used one to make a family album to take with me on a visit back home. Imagine my wonder and surprise when one of these lovely little albums popped up on a selling/buying group I am part I bought it knowing exactly these pictures would be the perfect event to use in this album. Hope you enjoy.

This year on Good Friday rather than just sit around the house hubby and I thought it would be nice to take the whole family on an outdoor adventure. So, we went to this state park we had talked about going to and fished, had a picnic, biked, and just had a great time enjoying the warm Florida sunshine. 

This picture includes all the pages left to complete. I can't wait to get back to it. This was a really fun little mini-album to work on.

Make sure you check out Cuttin and Stampin for other mini-albums this week.

Summer Time Blog Hop

Good Sunday Morning Ladies!

I am sharing today a wonderful layout I created recently at my annual summertime scrapcation. I got so much accomplished on the 5 day trip. So excited that lots of layouts are going in my annual albums. Here is a really cute summertime one I did of my 3 grandchildren with my oldest daughter "Aunt Holly" when we went to Epcot. Visiting with her is very special cause she lives way way far away as my grandson Lane says...we live in Florida and she lives in Oregon, so we treasure her visits.

Here is the blog line up: 

1.  Suzanne - back here if you did not begin there

10 Dorothy ~> go here next

Thanks so very much for hopping with us today. Don't forget to leave comments along the way to be eligible for the wonderful prize our sponsor Suzanne has offered up.

Challenge:   Case It
June 18 - 24, 2013

 I LOVE "Scraplifting" cause it gives you an idea to use as a springboard. I found this card right around the time we were doing the umbrella challenge and already had this adorable stamp set I had never used, so wanted to try this. I know, I know, Spring is officially over. I will probably hang onto this card and use it next year and brighten someone's day with it. Anyhow, here is my take on the card. 

And here is my inspiration!

It came from this blog.

Create your own Case It Project and enter in this weeks challenge. Go to the Cuttin and Stampin blog to get all the details.

My Newest Adventure!

I embarked on a new adventure just recently. I have opened a Facebook Group where I am selling new, hot, trendy, current, have to have it right now scrapbook supplies! And the best part is the cost is less than most retail locations. I also am willing to take special requests and see if I can obtain whatever you are looking for. All you have to do is click on the will also be on the sidebar for easy access later...then ask to join the Facebook group Scrapping for Less. I typically approve new members very quickly. Then, you can take a look around and see what I have to offer! Hope to see you soon!

Summer is Here Blog Hop!!

I am so excited to start off this summer! I recently retired and this will be my very first summer as a retired teacher! I started off the summer with a scrapcation trip to a timeshare with 3 other girlfriends. I was able to get 38 pages completed!! Go ME! I am trying my best to get at least through all of 2011 by the end of this year. I don't scrap chronologically but I do put my pages in my albums that way! So, therefore, I think that way!...I am almost finished with the first half of 2011, then I have 3 sets of pics left over from 2010, and 1 set from 2009...those I want to photo edit so they have been put off for far too long! 

Anyhow, I scrapped some awesome summer pages this past week for this hop!

Thanks for joining us on this hop. I hope you found some great inspiration!

And here is the most awesome prize package donated by the fantastic Suzanne from Zannie Berry Creations.
