It's Right Around the Corner

I can't believe that tomorrow is May 1st. I will be teaching at the Scrapbook Garden in Huntington Beach on the 9th....finally I can show you all my creation. I am thrilled with the way it turned out. Thanks so much to my online friend Jenny for giving me the inspiration. The class isn't quite full yet so if any of you local girls want to take the class give The Scrapbook Garden a call.

A Real Find

I was out in the garage the other day and came across a box of OLD photos and I mean seriously OLD! It was so cool. Some were back from the early 1900's others were from the late 1800's and then there were the ones from the 1950's a whole book of photos of my grandfathers neon sign business including some of the signs he made for businesses in San Jose. I have been looking for this album for over 10 years. I thought for sure it had gotten thrown away in the move. In among the photos was a St Helena Star newspaper from 1926 with my grandparents wedding announcement in it. I think I got as much fun out of reading the ads as I did the discription of Gramma's dress "The bride wore a "frock" of white beaded georgette crepe made with full skirt and simple bodice." Then they went on to say, "The Rundle home was beautifully decorated, pink gladiolas, roses and maiden hair fern being used in profusion." I can't remember when the last time it was I used the word "profusion". It was a great I have my work cut out for me....I need to scan all of these photos....that is going to keep me busy for a long time.
This is my grandmother with her brother and sister and her parents...dont know the guy on the far right

This is my Mom with my Grandma and Great Grandma
This is a photo of my grandfather. I am thinking he must be about 2 which would mean this photo was taken about 1898!
I am so definitely going to be scrapping some of these awesome photos.

A couple of Layouts

I've managed to scrap a couple of layouts this past week....both of my missionary. One recent and one not so recent. How did he manage to go from this sweet little boy to this amazing young man I will never know. But I love him dearly and am grateful he is serving his Heavenly Father.

Of course I have to post a layout of Riley....our sweet little dog. He has been home from his "Survivor" adventure for over a month now and we continue to be grateful for his return. We have bought him a harness for walking now so I feel much more comfortable walking him.

These are some photos from last fall.....he got a hold of a roll of toilet paper and just made a mess. We couldn't be mad at him for too long. One look at his face and he KNEW he was in trouble.
For those of you looking for another sneak peek of my class soon as the store gets the photo on their website I will post it here. Have a great week everyone.
