New Layouts

I thought I'd share a few new layouts I did with my grandkids' photos.  And here's my 2009 holiday card.

New Papers

I made some new papers for the kit I am creating in Hummie's designer's class.  I hope you like them:http://www.box.net/shared/uu015d0ya5

I already used one of the pink papers in this layout.

Thanksgiving Fun

Here are some layouts from Thanksgiving.  My grandkids were visiting and we had tons of fun!


Our new lesson in design class was creating papers, especially  parchment paper.  Click the link to find some of mine.  http://www.box.net/shared/nk69ippnig  I will be practicing this technique with other colors.  I hope you like it!

I am busy cooking and cleaning as all my kids and grandkids will be here for the Thanksgiving weekend.  I haven't seen my grandsons since the end of August.  I have plenty of hugs and kisses saved up for them!  Luckily, my granddaughter lives nearby, so I can get my "Grammie fix" pretty often from her.  I did take a break from all the work to scrap a page of my precious Phoebe Bea and would like to share that here.  The background papers and ribbon are from Fairy Fantasies fromBouquet of Pixels and the template is one of Hummie's at Hummie's World.

wordle cover page

I had to use my PC to make and save this wordle and then I emailed to myself on my MAC.  From there I was able to edit it and make it into a layout.  I will use this for the cover of the flip calendar that I am making for the family.   Thank you Hummie for teaching me about Wordle and thank you, Wordle.net, for being available and free!

Thank you, Hummie, for introducing me to Wordle in lesson 43.!  Unfortunately, I could not print or save it as a pdf to use on a layout (It does not work on a MAC, even when following their directions to circumvent the problem.)  So I posted it here on my blog instead----hope you get a chance to see it.  This was fun to do.  Maybe the Mac people can help me with it.

Wall Calendar

I just finished my family wall calendar. Each month is 8.5x11 and is made to be hung in a frame. (I will attach each page to an 11x14 sheet of poster board so it can be displayed in a larger frame.) I used pictures from previous years but in the same month for each month. The only exception is December, as I don't have pictures of our Phoebe Bea, but I won't be able to wait since I'm giving these out at Thanksgiving. Here is a preview of my calendar.

TOU and Internet Shortcut

Success at last! Thanks to my fellow digiscrapper and MAC user, Ann (Star Song Studio), I was able to complete this lesson--at least I hope I did! If anyone has trouble with my link, please let me know. Now on to lunch and then scrapping.

New Layouts at Last!

Well, I should be sleeping as I have to wake up at 4:00 a.m. to leave for the airport.  However, I got the itch to do some scrapping, and that itch was hard to scratch!  Here are my layouts for the Halloween photos of my grandkids.  (Credits to Meetje Designs, Halloween; kk punkinpatch; and Hummie's templates 21 and 23.)  Enjoy!

Happy November!

WOW!  It's November already!  This year is just flying by!  Today is my last day in beautiful Murrieta, CA until my next visit in December.  I hate to leave this awesome weather and head back east....oh, well....hubby and dog are waiting for me there.  I must say I haven't been scrapping much while here because I'm always outside, so I should catch up on all of Hummie's lessons once I'm home.  I am still learning about and working on this blog, so come back often to see the changes.

Halloween Dress Rehearsal

Good Morning!  It's another sunny, warm day in CA.  I'm loving it!!!!  My DDIL sent me these photos last night.  The brothers ae BFF right now----How long will that last????

And here is my sweet granddaughter in her Halloween preview.
She looks ready for candy!!!

I can't wait to scrap these but first I MUST get some sun!


Hello Everyone!  Welcome to my blog!  
Right now I am on a mini-vacation in CA. I've been taking advantage of the warm weather here before I head back to New England and the cold.  It's amazing how much friendlier people are in sunny CA!  My theory is that it's easy to be friendly and smiley when the sun shines everyday.  
I hope to share some of my designs and layouts with you soon.  Please let me know if you like them.
Until next time......Diane
