Puppy Love

This is Elway, my shit zhu.  I love my dogs.  Elway is loving on his stuffed doggie and I was so lucky to get this picture of him as he never sits still long enough to snap the shot.  This paper is Imaginese paper and embellishments along with some Jolee's Stickers.  The layout is a sketch from pineterst, you can find it in my Scrapbook stuff file. 

Grandma Woody

This layout is about my Grandmother Millie aka Grandma Woody.  This is my last picture with her before she passed away in October from COPD, a lung ailment.  I'm pictured with my Mom and middle brother Billy.  The photo was taken at Grandma's house in Winchester, KY.  Oh how I admired and loved my Grandma.  She was an amazing Woman.  I used My Minds Eye, Miss Caroline line papers and embellishments.  It is a simple layout.  Pink is my favorite color and this paper is my favorite line.

This layout is from my 27th Wedding Anniversary!  Having just celebrated my 28th Anniversary on May 18th I thought it was time I scrapbooked the 26th and 27th! lol  This is one of the busiest and most colorful layouts I have ever completed.  We were in Olympia, WA at Anthony's restaurant.  Can you tell we love seafood!  I chose the colors from our clothing.  The paper is from the Sassafras line called Paper crush.  I got this paper set from the Scrapbook Expo in Puyallup, WA as a gift for attending the crop.  I didn't like the set until I used it for this layout.  The flowers were made using the Tim Holtz tattered florals strip die using the paper from this pack.  The hearts are punched from the Stampin up large heart punch.  I inked everything in the Tim Holtz black ink.  I included a polaroid picture from 1983 when hubby and I were dating in college.  Love seeing us way back when and now!  I love how the hearts look all tucked in with the flowers. 

This layout is from my 26th wedding Anniversary.  Hubby Dean and I celebrated with dinner at the Crab Pot Restaurant in Seattle, WA.  It was an experience for sure!  The food is just dumped on your table.  You are given a little wooden cutting board and wooden hammer - no plate, fork, spoon - nada!  You just dig in!  Even the veggies are thrown in. lol  The shrimp still had their heads on which was kind of icky - but the crab was excellent.  We enjoyed a rainy walk along the pier, typical evening in Seattle.  It was a nice way to celebrate our marriage.  I used some netting, and embellishments are K & Co and the crabs are from Jolees stickers, the alphabet letters is a Sizzix die alphabet called Sunset, the little pot and spoon is a cuttlebug die.  the paper is from a tropical paper pack called sun kissed from Colorbok.
