Saint Patricks Day Crop - 3/14/15

Spent the day with Marian, Kathy and Marie  cropping.  It had been a long time since I have done this.  It was a very enjoyable time.  Though I left about 9:00 - I actually stayed all day.  I worked on my Heidi Swap binders and continued on my Year 51 Project Life Album

Creating Custom Canvas'

This past year, I have had a great time working with canvas' to create special treats for my family and friends.   Here a few that I have done so far and I am just getting started.







Creating with Project Life

After losing everything that I thought mattered, getting divorced and so on, I decided that I needed to focus on good things and document my new life.   So on my 51st birthday I began a Project Life Album to document Year 51.   Though I am only half done with it, I have all the journal notes and photos ready to go to finish the album.   I made a record on my IPhone and documented each week / day.    It was a great way to document my new world and not dwell on my old world.
Here is a sample of my "Year 51" Project Life Album








With this album ending in May, I started a mini album to go through the summer till the day I left on a plane for Las Vegas for Inspiration Unlimited.   It made a great difference for me to find something each day to be happy for.







I am really enjoying the process in creating these albums.  They make me see all the great things in my life and I am so thankful for them all.

Little Missy Mouse

About a month ago, one of my scrapping buddies Lisa Ritchie asked me to be on her business' creative team. Lisa loves Disney and she has created a business for digital scrapbooking. The things she has made are absolutely fabulous. You can use them to create digital items or print them up to add to layouts or want ever you would like. So this begins my journey into digital scrapbooking. I have to admit that I was very nervous and still have lots to learn. The release this month is Little Missy Mouse - so here are my layouts. I still need to design a Freebie to give away but still learning the ropes. Lisa's company is : http://chubbychihuahua-designs.com/ Go check it out, you won't be disappointed:
