A little Overhaul

I've been a busy scrapper's been so fun to create. I found a new source of inspiration at Thank you Michelle and all of your wonderful designers...they have so inspired me!

I also decided to update my blog a bit....made it look more scrappy I let me know what you think.
This is a lift of one of the AMM designers

This is my favorite! Another design inspired by AMM. Love this photo of Jase and Riley

Jason and I were having fun with the camera and got this cute one of Riley.

I love this one of Cliff and Me on July 4th weekend.

I simply had to have some of this BasicGrey Junebug was perfect for a picture of Riley.

This last one is a technique I tried with a mask and glimmer was kinda fun...more silly pictures of Jason and Riley.

Time is Slipping Away

Here it is the middle of July and I haven't posted a thing here on my blog...time just keeps getting away from me. Ok so I have been working more hours lately but that changes this week so I decided I would try and catch up on my blogging. I've been busy scrapping when I'm not counting Costco cards at the front door at work...and I am trying new things....I've been recently visiting my friend Michelle's scrappy site All I can say is WOW there is so much talent there. If copying is the highest form of flattery then I am the queen....I love scrap just always gives me a place to start. I found a layout of Michelle's that I liked and decided to try my hand at I always think of vintage as either 1. girlie or 2. used for heritage I decided to think outside the box a bit here and do a layout about my sweet missionary son.

July 4th they had a flash flood in the town where he is serving. I managed to get a few photos from a sweet facebook friend of mine (thanks Ricki) and have done a couple of layouts. So without further they are.

Here is the journaling for the "Hands of Service"...the photo just said so much to wasn't about the hail stones at all but about Jeremy and his willingness to serve.
"Jeremy sent this photo home so we could see the hail that they had on the fourth of July in Inkom Idaho. when I looked at the photo what really caught my eye, wasn’t the hail at all. It was his hands Hands that once were tiny and held on to mine as he learned how to walk. Hands that built amazing lego creations as a young boy. Hands that massaged my shoulders when I had a headache. Hands that worked in our yard or emptied the dishwasher. Hands that he folded in prayer. Hands that prepared the sacrament. Hands that throughout his life have chosen to serve others and by choosing to serve others he has chosen to serve our Heavenly Father.
Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. Matt. 25:40
I am so blessed to be your Mom. I love you always."
