October Afternoon and DT CAll

One of my fave scrappy places to hang is HSS aka Happy Scrappin' Scrapbooking. Sharon is the nicest and most generous ladies I know AND HSS has tons of goodies in the store for all you Cricut and Cuttlebug users AND Pageframe lovers ;) So make sure you check out the DT call.

Here are some projects I did for Serendipity Scrapbooks Weekly Review. I got to review Ducks in a Row by October Afternoon {poor me, lol} and some cutie Twitterpated rubons by Imaginisce. Don't forget that Serendipity just loaded OA's roadmap collection! Of course I needed to add some Core'dinations to my projects...whitewash here...it went really well with these soft colors.


Here is the journaling....when i think of grandmas i think of hugs and kisses and unlimited candy in the candy drawer. i think of McDonalds and Soap Operas and playing in the sewing room. i think of laughing and a brilliant sense of humor. I think of what an amazing woman you were and how you taught me that working hard is nothing to be ashamed of...i think of you tickling my back while i sat on the floor putting off riding my bike up that huge hill. i think of sleepovers whem mom and dad went away and birthday parties on your back porch. i think of getting "squinched" b/w you and grandpa when i snuggled in bed with you. when i think of grandmas, i think of unlimted amounts of love and memories that will last a lifetime.



I did a little super secret journaling on here ;)

Beautiful layouts Ellen, the journalling about your grandma is beautiful.

I always wished I had a close relationship with my nana but that wasn't meant to be.

Thank you for sharing.
