This is our new baby Bama.
HE is just the sweetest thing.
Here I used some scalloped PP
along with some altered Heidi Swapp
Raw chipboard letters and a homemade
I don't know if you can tell, but the letters were altered with some Liquid Applique' that you heat and it puffs up... cool stuff. Then I dotted each liquid applique drop with a sharpie.
Here are a few shots taken at the Florida Aquarium. I took the boys last week on our vacation week and thought these photos were pretty cool. They are all Sea Dragons from or around Australia

This one is from Easter...
Challenge was to create a layout using colors
that are complementary on a color wheel.
(red and green)
Here's a 6x12 layout of Jacob
trying to look tuff! LOL!
The challenge was to incorporate
"graffiti"... I created the graffiti
paper using photoshop and some free
brushes I downloaded from
Very cool place to get some neat brushes!
Here's another 6x12... VERY quick layout
Challenge was to use the word
unbelievable on the layout... easy peasy!
Photo from Florida Aquarium... yep, those are my
boys drooling on the glass. THEY both love
to watch the fishies and SHARKS!

I was able to get a few layouts done despite my cold that hit me like a ton of
rocks last Thursday. The retreat was extremely fun and totally needed! I can't wait until
the next retreat!
Oh, and Last Friday was my birthday so it was great to get away for that special day!
PLUS I was able to get my birthday gift at Hobby Lobby. I wasn't expecting to find such
awesome deals... I bought 2 American Crafts D-Ring albums for $10 each! That is an AWESOME deal. Usually I have to purchase them online for $20 each and pay shipping
on top of that! I was so stoked! (they were on sale for 50% off) PLus they had all their
stickers for 50% too! I stocked up on some alpha stickers... LOVE those things!
Anyway, here are a few things I made over the weekend.

Another layout by Jill
Photos taken in Charleston, SC

concert. Guessing around 1994 or 95
Layout by Dianne
Sorry Dianne... I changed the title on this one
so I could use it with this photo.
Photo taken in Colorado Springs, CO
in 2000 (or so)
This was taken at our Apartment on
Academy -- small little place we rented together.
Layout by Robin
Photos of Terrilyn and I at her parents
mountain house in GA back in 1994 or so.
They have a thing called Clover Fest every
June... cause when her parents bought this
vacation home in the mountains, her mother found
a four leaf clover in the backyard. It is a beautiful home!
We partied so hard that week... and LAUGHed so much... man, those were the days.
Layout by Patsy -- old old swap layout.
Well, the photos are a bit older.
These photos were taken at Disney world
when there was only the Magic Kingdom.
This is me and my Mom.
Layout by Jill
Sorry Jill, had to change the title on this one
Rainbow photos I took while living out in
Castle Rock, CO. I was driving home from work when I spotted this beautiful site!
Layout by Amanda. Older swap layout
This is my Grandmother Smith in 1994
at my parents home at Christmas.
She still looks just like this today!
I really miss her (she lives in NC)
Layout by Amanda.
Photos of my Grandmother Patterson
The second photo is my Aunt Cathy, Grandmama and my Mom (Rhonda).
Layout by Tamera.
Photos taken LONG time ago
(probably around 1993 or 94)
Girls night out!
If I remember correctly, this Layout was created by Jenn K.
Not your typical Halloween layout, but the colors matched with the photos so I went for it.
Why not, it's better than them still sitting in an old box.
Photos of my brother and I at Halloween.
(along with my doggie Lucy)
This was during a time when you didn't get to choose what you would be at Halloween... you just wore what you got... and were happy about it.
Looks like we were a couple of Easter bunnies...LOL!
Layout by Tamera.
Photos taken during the Aspen Colorado Hotair
Layout by Patsy from an older swap.
I had the hardest time trying to figure out what
photos to go on this... and I had these 2 sitting on my desk and thought about the amazing changes that have occured in only 2 short years.
Layout by Tamera
I wasn't sure how the photos were suppose to be placed... but this worked out oK.
These photos were from a Mixer in College with the Pi Kapps. FUN TIMES!
Layout by Michelle.
I couldn't remeber how this one was suppose to go... but Lukas climbing up on the bed went perfect with this cool title Michelle made.
Lukas climbs on everything... even climbs out of his crib now!
