Are U Ready for Spring???

I is one more layout I did last night for Kynnedie. I used the new line "Lucy Bird" by Imaginesce. I also used Prima flowers, Liquid Pearls, rub-on stitches, Jenni Bowlin butterflies and white Thicker letters. These are also the papers I am using in my March class, which my pictures do not do it justice at all. Today, I tried taking the pictures outside in the morning sun. Think they are a little better.

What a Cutie Pie

One more for the night! As you can see I am very busy right now. I have got to get caught up on the people I am scrapping for. I have about 6 on going projects right now and Miss Kynnedi is one of them. She is the cutest little thing...well actually she is a teen now, but the pictures I am scrapping are of her when she was a little girl. I love the Lucky Line by Little Yellow Bicycle so I just had to use it and the pictures went to well with the papers. I have to apologize for the photography...I stink at it! Plus as I had told you my camera lens went KA-PUT! So I am using my nifty fifty that I know nothing about!!! Anyways, hope you enjoy my last layout of the night.

Jana Eubank...Thank You for your sketches!

I have come across Jana's blog before, but it's been awhile. Today I was blog hopping and wow oh wow...I love all of these sketches Jana has provided us with. Many of you know I'm a 2 page scraper (though I love 1 pagers) but I just know I can extend these over to the other side very easy! Go check out Jana's blog and tell her I sent you!

The LaHaye's

I have been working on Dr. Chip and Lacey LaHaye's family albums. The album that I have worked on for the past several months is the building of their home. It is breathtaking and very unbelievable. I have finished up another portion of the 2nd book. A friend of mine started the 1st book and I am sure by the time I am finished with this project there will be at least 4 books. It is so much fun seeing the progression of this home. They are building out in the country on several acres...I just love the layout that I worked on which shows the front of the home, I used the K&Co. magnolia stickers, Prima flowers and the new Webster Pages to create this lovely layout. I would like to "Thank" the LaHaye's for allowing me to work on this project for has been so much fun!

Matagorda County Fair & Rodeo

Each year we go visit my parents and go to the small town rodeo. Last year was the first year that we weren't able to go due to Troy's accident. We were determined to make it this year. Here are a few shots that I got before we left the house. I have to say...we just love the wild bull riding contest (not quite sure that's what it's called) but what it is, is 3 amateur guys get out there...wrestle a HUGE bull, and get the ropes on it while one of the guys has to ride it down to the other end of the rodeo arena. I actually have a friend that use to participate in this, he got pretty banged up by the bull, and many of the guys do. There use to be a man that was in his 60's or 70's that would participate every year...thank god he finally saw the light and retired! This year a young group of boys set the record for this competition...and it was rather exciting. I know most of my Louisiana friends don't see me as the type to love all of this...but I REALLY DO!

Sad Day in Football!

Today, as I was logging onto yahoo...of course the heading read "Jake Unemployeed" This broke my heart. I can remember him saying, "I will always make time for autographs because one day I will be a nobody." And this might not have been exactly what he said, but it was close. Just because he's had a bad season they got rid of him to make room for some newby named Matt Moore. As many of you know, I am not a HUGE football fan. But I am a HUGE Jake fan. I have watched him through the years and he has done so much for our community. He is such a respectable guy and family man...and I understand Pro football is all about making money (which is one reason I don't like it) and I guess they feel they have done the right thing. But I hope he shows this team that he is not finished and I hope he kicks some ass somewhere else! Go Jake!!!
