Scrapping is not fast for me…

That’s right.  We just had Halloween and the pictures sit nicely on my hard drive.  Part of me says I should do it right away… as I have some scout pictures over 2 years old that need to be done because I did not do them right away!  Instead of doing the scrapping right away, … Continue reading »

Something Scary that wasn’t suppose to be

I couldn’t resist giving Cassel’s Poster Art a try. I found a picture of my boys in scout uniform and thought “I can do this. Doesn’t look that hard.” Baw hahahahaha. I should have known better.

Do it over in March

It’s that time again. Time to pick another old layout and see what I can do to improve it. This time I chose an Easter layout I did of my nephews (Bug’s boys) way back in 2007. While it has the pastel colors associated with Easter it just doesn’t flow properly. The layout was about … Continue reading »
