A new week to enjoy!

I'm going to start this early this morning.  I do need to run to the store for a couple of things. I'm looking for a baker's rack to put my plants onto in the East window (that sounds like I already told you about doing that). Maybe I should run over to the Goodwill store and see if I can find a "side boy" for my bedroom to put away the books that collect dust. I have them for references but it seems that lately I'm not needing to look for anything. 

I've got the Wedding Album finished and then I went through the thousands of pictures on my computer and put together 5 folders of pictures and scrapbook pages for 5 different people. 

The largest folder was my Grand daughter Bridgit with 3,928 pictures and 598 of those were scrapbook pages over the last 10 years that I've made for her. 

The oldest daughter's file is 3,785 pictures and 509 of those are scrapbook pages. And I'm sure I haven't found them all but I think that's a good start. A lot of her pictures were of her 4 children in their really small years. She lost all of her pictures when she left Alabama to move to Colorado. I'm sending  as many as I have found and hopefully there aren't too many of the same picture just named differently.

I found a file of pictures from 10 years ago before I started doing scrapbooks and all I did was put a frame around a picture and a word or two. Now I'm a little more creative with the help of some of the best designers in the universe. I'm trying my best to remember to put the credits at the bottom of the pages. Sometimes it thrown together with stuff that I picked up but have no idea who put it on the web site. And if they didn't include a preview with their credits on it, I can't remember who did it.

Here's a few I made this morning or should I say they are a "Do Over"!
A young friend's graduation.

Grandma Charlie & Dominic (who is 10 yrs old Wednesday.).

Dominic and his Daddy in early 2005.

The latest puppy to join us. And he looks just like our other dog did when she was a puppy in 2008.

A friend posted a pic of herself at 3 yrs old and I couldn't resist make a "Then and Now" scrapbook page.

A QP from Miriam's kit Denim & Lace, put to good use.

This little lady will be 10 yrs old in Dec this year and will probably be mortified to find out I put these pictures on the internet. Ah well she's such a sweet girl she'll probably forgive her Nana!

She has always been a bit of a character and I love making scrapbook pages of her.

Doesn't she look horrified at being stuck in the tub with all her stuffed animals. It was so we could get some moving done without her underfoot.

Such a beautiful face.

A cousin back in Pennsylvania posted a then picture so I made a Then & Now picture of her also.

That's it for today. Time for brunch.


  1. Nicely redone Missy! Thanks for using my page and word art. The more of these you do, the more you want to do!! LOL or so it goes with me! I too, have thousand and thousands of photos on my computer, on CD's for back up and now on DVD's and still I have not made a dent in them....I think I have 40 albums and 4 just for states we have traveled in and 6 for just my cats....and they are large albums too, then many I have made and given away! Plus, I am having some printed now as gifts and I have my blog printed so that I can leave my history behind....ROFL!

    1. How do you get your blog printed or do you do it yourself? I know how to copy and save as a PDF but it would be great to have it in a notebook or on a cd if possible.

  2. And I thought I was bad, making as many as I do. I'm going to have to post the new ones from this morning.
