Find Spot

Well you know the expression a day late and a dollar short.   Well thats what I was with this layout.
When I started this layout today I had the print out   "USE YOUR STUFF"  Challenge #279 Fall is in the Air,  But........that was last week so when I went to link it I saw that the new challenge is
#280 - PETS.     So I guess it all worked out because the theme of my layout was our new kitten, Spot that we got last fall and how we kept finding him hiding in my fall basket on the kitchen counter.

Walter Cronkite Impersonation

I'm scrapping old pictures today.   This one is about a year old.   I might have already made a layout using one similiar to it, but this picture was in a stack on my desk so I'm assuming it was there for me to scrap.     This was such a fun day out with my brother and Dad,  we went about 50 minutes north of Kansas City and did some sightseeing in St. Joseph.  We had no idea there was a Walter Cronkite Museum at the college there, but so glad we saw the sign because it was fantastic and we all loved it.
They had this desk set up just like he sat out to do the nightly news and even the option of taking a picture with their camera set up and printing your picture there for free.   We all did it.

I'm entering this layout in a double challenge using the same sketch.
The September 15th reveal at "STUCK ?! SKETCHES"  and the double challenge using the same sketch at  "MY CREATIVE SCRAPBOOK"     These are the links and here is the sketch.
Plus there is an awesome blog hop going on with lots of inspiration for the sketch.

I am starting my PL pages for September today and I used the mid month sketch #86 at

Here is the sketch and link to  "SKETCHES IN THYME PL STYLE"   and following that is my first complete PL page for the month.

Summer Relaxing

We are all settled into our new home at the Lake of the Ozark and now before the summer is totally over we can enjoy the water.     It is so wonderful having a lakefront home so that we can walk out and swim/float anytime we want.   We even have all the toys,  the jet skis are here and our boat will be delivered on Wednesday.     So with this landscape Summer is definitely going to be my favorite time of year.   Let the sun shine.

I'm entering this layout in two challenges.    

"SKETCH N SCRAP"  Sketch #137

And then "COLORFUL CREATIONS"   My favorite is sunny days.

Kai and Mylan go back to School

I finally got all the back to school pictures of Kai and Mylan in Florida and have been busy scrapping them today.       I also got to use a lot of old diets I had from swaps and had been hoarding and never used.   So glad to finally use them all.

I can't believe these two are growing up so fast.    I remember Kai's first day of school and now he is already in 6th grade.   My grandkids are growing up way to fast.

I'm a big kid now

I couldn't believe it when my son-in-law posted this picture of Elle out shopping with them.
My granddaughter is growing up way to fast for me.

For this layout I am entering it in two challenges.    First I used the Sept. 1st sketch at
"LET'S GET SKETCHY"   and then the challenge #361 at "LASTING MEMORIES"


"LASTING MEMORIES"  All about florals - use some type of floral patterned paper somewhere on your layout.

Before Sunrise

We are loving living at the lake, it is just so beautiful and tranquil.   From beautiful sunsets to waking up early and seeing a full moon set.    That is what I caught in these pictures.   I woke up real early and looked out the window and could see the full moon from the night before starting to go down.
I got up and went outside to get some pictures.      Waking up at 4:30 a.m. is well worth it when you see something like this.

I used  Sept 1st sketch #136 at  "SKETCH N SCRAP"  plus I pulled out some super old papers to make my layout.   I used My Minds Eye - Tres Jolie.    This is a 10 year old collection back from 2007.   Yes I never through anything away, I keep it and finally use it.
