So Far Behind

I am so far behind in updating this thing. Since we have been home I have been able to scrap more and I am having so much fun. I do wish I could move my scraproom downstairs so that I didn't have to run up and down the steps after Kevin all night long, but I have so much stuff it could never fit into a small bedroom.

So anyway, here are some layouts I have been working on:

This one has special meaning for me, obviously. It was done for a challenge over at ScrapMuse and it was based on what we are most thankful for. We are so lucky that Kevin is alive after all he has been through and it means the world to me that I CAN take a family photo.

Levi came to visit us in Florida this summer and he and I went to Busch Gardens one day. While there, I allowed him to run through the fountains. He didn't have his swimsuit, so he was fully clothed and he got so wet that my car seat didn't dry out for days. He was just so excited!

This one is of Breezy at the Japanese Tea Garden in San Antonio. I have SO MANY photos of that day so expect to see more, lol.

This photo is of me sitting on a bench at the garden mentioned above. I played with some of the special photo effects using PSE I learned over at Jessica Sprague.

I took some mulberry paper and cut it into strips and stitched them to the paper in a gathered fashion. I didn't plan on it looking this way, but I do like that it's different than any other layout I have ever designed. I used a lot of my Nov ScrapMuse kit for this one.

I had this wonderful photo of Hope riding a horse while she was here visiting over the summer. I used some stickles on the sunflowers to make them each different and I am loving those Prima flower centers!

Can you believe that Kevin took this picture of me? For someone with the use of only one arm/hand, it's amazing to me.

We ended up going to San Antonio for surgery for my son and we didn't get home for 2 months. Aaargh! I am so glad we got back though and I finally got some scrapping done!

Here are a few I made recently:

This one is based on a sketch designed by Tricia Peever over at ScrapMuse. You can view the sketch by clicking here.
