Oh and the voting thing, only sun. and you can only vote once and only for one LO so make sure you take a look at all of them :) Luv Ya


  4. I first started scrapbooking in my senior year in High School. It was for my Senior Exit Project, and now a million dollars later I still love it. I will have to post my LO's from that book! It is amazing how techniques change. I love looking back in old scrapbooks!

  5. I would love some sun overhere, maybe we can take some of yours!!! And I'll send you some of the wind we have here for days!!:(
    Love your first LO, it looks a lot like my first one!!! And I looooove all the photo's especially the one where Brooke tries to copy her brother, so cute!!

  6. Yep! We both started with the same deco cut photos. lol, looking these pics up on my PC makes me want to redo some of them. I probably will, since most of my first pages are my pregnancy photos and my DH army days.

    Congrats on the catwalk feature. I get confused at SIS, I need to take the time to learn the site.

  7. First of all: congrats with the catwalk!!!

  29. OK, I have to issue a warning. I have tried to post a comment three times now and none have shown up. So I am trying again. Please forgive the multiple postings should they decide to show themselves.

    First of all, a big CONGRATS to you the Catwalk! I love that layout! Speaking of layouts, your early work is still amazing! I can relate to what the style was then, since I was trying my hand at it then also. You were rocking the scrapping world then!

    Love your little treasure package from Amy! I received one day before yesterday! I was so surprised when I opened it! She is just the sweetest! Can't wait to see what you do with your goodies! And I also can't wait to see the pages you create with those fantastic Mother's day photos! They are so awesome!!!

    One last thing, with regard to your comment on my recent post, you, my dear, are one beautiful lady, INside and OUT!!! XOXO!!!
