Somehow my scrapbooking has taken precedent over my "real" design work! Not really, but when the creative urge hits, sometimes you just need to go with it. So is the case with this page. Just loved the look on Noah's face and how his eyes just gleamed. The boy has... Continue reading

Yes, another birthday. This morning my cousin emailed me saying, "I think you'll enjoy being 29!" I laughed and then really thought for a minute about how much my life has changed since 29. Scary how long ago that was!!! Although I was having a whole lot of fun at... Continue reading

Valentine's Day has now come and gone, and yes, I'm relieved! I created a couple of sweet layouts to commemorate the day but it seems they got lost in the shuffle of my crazy life. Husband has been out of town for over two weeks (I sent him his layout... Continue reading

SNOWMAGEDDON!!! That's what all the weather reports are calling it. Seems that I've been posting a lot of snow layouts but I guess when you get record-setting amounts of the fluffy white stuff, that's what you do! Today the sun shined its rays upon us and the pics look a... Continue reading

I like snow, but this is RIDICULOUS!!! I spent three hours shoveling, and NO, it's not finished. After seeing my best friend (and primo design queen) Lisa Hetrick's post with her spring creation, I was inspired to create this fun, and wishful!, layout. Even used the spring butterflies that I...

Looks like Maryland is in for some serious SNOW!!! Growing up in northern New York has kind of tainted my view of the Maryland "state of panic" that occurs over such precipitation but nonetheless, I'm excited for the much needed downtime that the impending storm will bring. In the meantime,... Continue reading
