My First Blog Hop

This is the first time I have been involved in a blog hop and I really enjoy it. I started off at and got my sketch. Next, I went to my friend Cristal's blog and picked up my theme. Finally, I went to Kelly's blog and got my final instructions. Here is my interpretation of the assignment!
The instructions at said to use silver and ribbon. I actually used a silver ribbon. Here is a close up of the ribbon.

A lovely honor!

I just found out that I was Design Team's Layout of the Day yesterday (Saturday, Feb. 20th) over at!!!! What a lovely honor. Here is the layout they picked:

New Baseball Layouts

Here are some layouts that I finished up yesterday. I am trying desperately to finish my son's albums by the time he graduates in May!!!! Thanks to and and their wonderful challenges, I might actually get done. Here are some more

Card Sketch

I don't usually post all the cards I make but I really like this one. It is a tag-card made from the sketch over at

Febuary Challenges

I've been kinda busy lately just trying to figure out how to do a monochromatic layout over at At first, I thought it would be easy since my color choices were black, red, white or pink (okay, pink was never really an option for me!) and I do a lot of these colors because they are, opps were, Jay's college baseball colors. The problem came when I realized I'd never done a layout with just ONE of the colors!!! As always I grabbed black - nope didn't work. Then red - not really right. WHITE??? Well it took a while but I think I made the right choice. The white really makes the pictures pop and the mesh added some texture. I hope you enjoy my first monochromatic layout.

Here is some of the lettering up close

Thanks for stopping by!
