Soul Mates Scrapbook Page

Hi there, This a photo of a scrapbook page I made. I did case it from splitcoast. I'm very sorry I could probably not find it again. But I loved it. Mine is not exactly the same as my inspired one, but I still love it. The paper is from of course, Stampin' Up. It's called Morning Mocha and is retired now, but I have a pack left that I will make a few pages from for an upcoming Craft Fair.. I have to add, that the photo was taken by my photographer (daughter). She does such a great job. I just really love her photography work. Notice how she kept the pump red on this black & white photo. Hope you like.. and thanks for stopping by..

I have been trying for a very long time to learn and understand the life of this man. I can't explain why, but I feel like I just need to know what made him tick.. For this man is my Great-Great Grandfather. His name is Ferdinand Wiese. This is the only photo that I have of him. Don't know what kind of uniform this is. All I know is he came from Germany, sounds like a very stern man with a temper, and died in Iowa in 1886. But one thing I do know is that he gave me the BEST Great-Grandmother anyone could ask for. So, if you are reading this and are a history buff, please leave me a comment on your feelings of what the uniform is.. I really would like to solve my mystery.

Hi there, It has been a long time for me to post something. Sorry about that!! It's been a little crazy around here. No, I take that back..It's been a lot crazy..LOL Anyway, here are a couple of cards that I made just recently. The one on the bottom is an Anniversary Card that I made for my Sister & Brother-in-law. 25 years!! That's great!! The one on the top is a thank you card. I found this on someone else's blog and kinda copied!! For the life of me I can't remember the name of the blog. But I send a great big Thank You to all the bloggers out there for all their inspiration. Leave a note and let me know what you think. Everything used to create these cards are from Stampin' UP! Visit my Stampin' Up shop today.. Happy Stampin'

Sponge Bob Card

Good Morning and thanks for stopping by. Today is our Grand-daughters (Bella) 3rd Brithday. I had been looking at several spongebob cards on blogs, pinterest, name it. Anyway, I thought it would be a perfect little birthday card for a perfect little lady. Sooo...Here is my take on the project. It's not perfect, but I think it turned out really well. All paper and supplies are from Stampin' Up. I haven't written down any measurements yet. I just kinda eye-balled my way through. Hope you like it, and have a Happy Day..

Happy Sunday, Everyone! Wanted to show you this page I created today. It's a really quite simple page. I just wanted to highlight on my Granddaughter, Marcee, making the local newspaper for Student of the Week. The school colors are purple and gold, so Stampin' Ups Regal collection really works great. The purple is Elegant Eggplant and the gold is More Mustard. Wishing you all a great and fun summer. And thanks for stopping by.

Birthday Card

Hello. Hope you are having a great weekend. I wanted to take a moment to post this birthday card that I made for our oldest Granddaughter. She is now 13 (a teenager, young lady and the greatest 13 year old I know!) I might be a little prejudice, just a smidgen..LOL. Kaylee is into the Zebra stripes in this stage of her life. Everything is Zebra stripes. I have to admit though, I am kinda fond of them myself. Anyway, I am happy with how my card turned out. What do you think. Even ran the envelope through the printer using a print shop program to make it ( YOU GUESSED IT!) Zebra stripes.
And for her gift bag, I found this Zebra Tote at Wal-Mart!! It was the only one they had in this style. Perfect!!
