Book of Me!

I am so excited as I decided to start an album about my life story! It is called a Book of Me. I just finished the introductory page and am posting it here.  I hope I continue to work on it as my friend Pat gave me some sites and prompts for direction. I am sure it will be a slow process and some may not be easy. It will have a lot of journaling so that is good as I need practice with that! Some will be viewable some will be gently tucked away in a pocket on the page. Here's the first page!

Thanks for Looking!

Back from Vacation!

 I had the best time this past week! Went to the New Jersey Shore and went whale/dolphin watching, visited Cape May and Atlantic City Boardwalk! A great vacation! Met my friend Pat from Vermont there and took my neighbor and friend Barb with me! Drove over 1000 miles round trip! Here are a couple of layouts I did today with pics from my trip!

This is the Cape May Lighthouse

And this is the only whale we saw!

Layout Swap!!!!

Awww yes we did a layout swap over at Scrapping the Moments! Layout swap you ask? We swaped photos and scrapped them, then mailed the originals to the girl who's photo we scrapped! What fun it was. We also sent needed information like a name and age or when the photo was taken! Here is the one I scrapped of Lynn's grandson Owen and his dog Lucy

Then I sent a photo of Maggie at age 3 to Diana and she scrapped this beautiful page

I love it sooooooo much!!!! It is so much better in person, all the detail she puts into a page!
If you think it sounds like we are having fun you should join us!

Maggie got her haircut and donated a 12 inch ponytail to Locks of Love, who make wigs for children going thru chemotherapy." reads the journaling. Maggire also picked the papers I used for this layout!
