21 OMG I can't believe it!

So now my oldest is 21.

Happy Birthday Chelsi Ann!

Here she is with her cat, Liberty.

We hid 21 envelopes with items in each. She could only keep the envelope if she could answer a "Family Trivia" question. Sample questions:

1. How did Bumpie get his name?

2. How does Grandma spell her name?

3. What are Nanny's 2 favorite places in the whole world?

4. What was Ryan's hamster's name?

She also had to perform the 5 letter cat alphabet and sing the little turtle song.

Love you, first child of mine!!!

Love this prompt! Made this from some very old cards that I found in a small chest of drawers. Stamped them and added some "pink" paint chips. We have so much to be grateful for.

Digi Again!

Here is cute lo of Kelli's 16th. I have been digi hybrid scrapping for about week due to the upstairs being painted! This is the april 06 fiskars sketch and the papers are the july 06 freebies from 2 peas! It turned out so fun. I need to use sketches more often.

A "BOO"ing We Will Go!

Here we are getting ready to "Boo"!

The "Boo"er is dressed in black and about to load the "Boo" items in to the car. (Amber is helping). The Get Away "Boo" driver (me) has driven to the homes and planned the means to avoid detection. The "Boo"ers will be listening to Purple People Eater, Ghostbusters, and Addams Family while carrying out their mission! Oh boy! We just love the Halloween Season!

This prompt was "Where would you ride your magic carpet to?" or something like that. I was more excited about my idea to make a mini folder in a matchbox then the actual prompt. If you know me at all you would know that I would go anywhere, anytime!!! Soooo, I covered the matchbox and found a tag of matching paper and then tried to find pictures (of Pictish symbols) to put on the mini. I included pictures from Aberlemno, Edinburgh, Meigle, Dunning Cross, and Brandsbutt. It is my own wee treasure box of prevous magic carpet rides!

Woke up to SNOW on Sunday morning, and as I was rushinig off to church I did not take any pictures! There was not any down in the city, but as I returned up Rabbit Creek Road there was still a little. Amazing that our house is that much higher than Anchorage! Here are pictures of another sunset and then some wild flowers from last week. The flowers are in our neighbors back yard which is out our front window. (I think! Growing up on a lake I never know what is back and what is front cuz it is the opposite to everyone else!) ENJOY! And see the mountain range in the first one? Usually the sun doesn't shine on them so nicely...just begging me to take a picture!

St. Orland's Stone

Mini album technique that I learned from Shimelle Lane... I think I watched a video of her on a talk show or something! This is the 3rd one I have made using this fast and easy technique. I love it!

After much deliberation, chose Debbie to be my SPECH! Sorry it is a terrible picture! Journaling reads "YOU be my spech, Debbie! Just by being yourself, you give so much! So glad I know ya!"

Fish and Chips

I am just salivating for a jumbo haddock supper with cheese on the chips and salt and vinegar from Lowe's in West Hill. Just thought I would feel better if I said it... but I don't!
