2nd layout for Scrapfit Challenge #12

I know, I got carried away doing layouts for the challenge. I just couldn't help it! This layout was lifted from Amyee's (ONE of my favorites to steal ideas from) August challenge. Again, when I saw her layout I knew exactly what picture I was going to use.

First layout for Scrapfit Challenge #12

Here is the first layout that I did for the Challenge #12. I "lifted" Katie's August layout. The minute I saw it I knew exactly what layout I wanted to make with it. This is my son, Jay, visiting with his cousin's little league team. His cousins, Ross and Jack were officially superstars for having a cousin who played college baseball.

Card Making Day

The other day I received a thank you note from my dear friend Lottie. Lottie has been battling lung cancer (NO, she has never smoked) for almost 2 years now, and I love to send her little cards and notes to cheer her up and let her know I am thinking about her. In her note to me she said I was her biggest cheerleader (I really hope she didn't mean SIZE!). Anyway, that got me to thinking about my next card. This is what I came up with . . . .

Lottie is an Auburn fan so of course the card had to be orange and blue. Here is a close up of my little cheerleader. . .

I love to do paper piecings and I found this cheerleader on a free clipart site.

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Monday!

Greetings from Hoover, Alabama! We started back to school today. Our Christmas break was extended because of a couple of snow days that really didn't produce very much snow. I loved what we did today and I just had to post it. Remember, in Alabama we hardly ever see snow so we used garbage bags and newspaper to make snowman. His arms are twisted strips of plain brown bags. My class had the best time!
Isn't he cute?

This is a double duty layout. Two forums were having a crop at the same time and
Of course another layout of my son Jay. This is Jay playing for Jacksonville State University in a game against Harvard.

Another SCRAPFIT challenge

This layout is for Winter Wonderland Crop.


I was suppose to "mix things up" and I think I did. This layout is of my son with ribbon and flowers.

Singing with the Beatles

This challenge was to design a layout around a song from The Beatles. My first thought was one of my favorite songs, "Words of Love"


The second one is the Beatles birthday song. This is me sharing a birthday with my nephew, Alex.

A new challenge for one of my favorite blogs/websites. Use the phrase "It's a Wonderful Life" and use some stitching. Well, I'm a baseball mom so when I think of stitching, I think of a baseball. Here is the Jacksonville State baseball team after becoming the Ohio Valley Conference regular season CHAMPIONS!! Thank you for looking!
