|Glen Cove High School - June 1965|
Just look at that hair, will ya? Check out the long white gloves, too. I can't believe it, but that prom was 50 years ago! I did love that dress - light blue dotted swiss. Don't you love how my date wore a blue suit to match? We had a great time, and we're still friends!
Can't identify the paper used, nor much of anything else. "Fabulous" is an Ali Edwards die from Technique Tuesday, and the pink corner borders on the photo are Spellbinders Botanical Swirls and Accents. The flower is from Scappin' Supplies. Wish I knew where I got the Prom alphas - love them and they're almost gone.

I went with my granddaughter and daughter to see a local production of the musical Tarzan, and it was awesome! It was extra special because one of her swim instructors played Tarzan and her music/PE teacher played Jane.
Older paper - no information about it. The alphas are Memories Captured from Fancy Pants. I inked the photo mats with Hero Arts Grass, and Memento Dew Drop Cantaloupe, Tangelo, Rich Cocoa, and Teal Zeal.

All of the paper and embellishments are from SEI's Autumn's Smile collection. I've splattered the paper with Tim Holtz Distress Spray Stain.

Another two-page layout - this one featuring Thanksgiving, the first ever with both of my kids and all five grandchildren. The first page is based on this week's sketch from scrapbooksteals Mid Week Mojo, and the second from a Get It Scrapped sketch. They are part of my participation in Get It Scrapped's Calvinball activity - fun!
Most of the paper is old and of unknown origin. Alphas are from Authentique's Curiosity and Fancy Pants' Memories Captured. The little "A Time For" sticker is from Jillibean Soup, the clock stamp from Techniques Tuesday's Timeless, the leaf and "Family" sticker from SEI's Autumn's Smile, and I cut the "Happy Thanksgiving" title on my Cricut.

The next two in the Fall series for my daughter's family. There wasn't room for a note on each photo, so I numbered them and put notes on the journal card.
Most of the paper, the large leaves, and the burlap are from SEI's Autumn's Smile collection. The yellow glitter paper is from DCWV, the alphas from ek success, and the journal card from We R Memory Keepers.

|First Day of School - 2014|
|First Day of School - 2014|
I'm working on a series of layouts for my daughter and her family - currently I'm scrapbooking the fall months of 2014. Here's my granddaughter on the first day of school, and of course her little brother had to tag along. I love this Autumn's Smile collection from SEI - the colors are so rich and all of the elements are lovely. Just about everything you see is from that kit. And I'm quite taken with the journaling pockets (one within the other) - I filled them up with the story of how she ended up in 1st grade, and information about her cousins, who go to the same school, and the grades they're in. I'm playing along with Get It Scrapped's Calvinball game and trying to do two layouts every day.

|Younger Grandson at Kid Wrestling|
|Older Grandson at Kid Wrestling|
These two layouts show two of my grandsons at their final wrestling tournament for the season this last weekend. Both are based on sketches from scrapbooksteals.com's Mid Week Mojo (see sketches below). They could be a two-page spread, but will actually go into two different albums, one for each boy, which is why they both have a title.
The chipboard alphas are from We R Memory Keepers Jet Set collection, and the wrestling stickers are from Scrapbook Customs.

|Eiffel Tower at night - May 2008|
Finally getting around to scrapbooking a trip to Paris in 2008! I really liked making this layout - having a black background, choosing the blues and golds to match the photo, those fancy alphas, having a title cluster up in the corner, enhancing the little journaling card - it was so much fun!

My friend and I went to DC 6 years ago; we had been there some years before but hadn't had time to see much, so this time we crammed it all in! Had a really terrific time!
This two-page spread is not quite complete - journaling, dates, and a couple of small embellishments will be added. All of the paper is from Keller's Creations, ribbon from Jilly Girl, and the inks are Memento Dew Drops Ladybug and Danube Blue. (Inking the paper was an afterthought, as I thought it looked too bare - won't do that again!)

|My sister and I were M & M|
With both of our names beginning with M, my sister and I called ourselves "M & M." This layout is another in the series of my life, for the albums I'm making for my two grown children and their families. It's based on a sketch from Get It Scrapped. Most of the paper is from October Afternoon's Oh Darling and My Mind's Eye's Now and Then collections, the pink frame and most of the washi is from Pink Fresh, the M's are from the Oh Darling collection, and the journal note is from Elle's Studio Tiny Tags.
