I was asked what my scrapping goals for 2014 were so here they are!
My scrapping goals are not too demanding! I don't set a number of layouts as that is too much pressure. I am making another attempt at a loose interpretation of a PL. I I also want to start scrapping my girls photos. I am going to get the special scanner out that I can start scanning slides and scrapping those photos. I also want to do more of the heritage pages. I have a lot of work to do with those photos. My Book of Me also has not been touched in a long time. I think all of that could keep me in my scrap room for the next year!
I have a few other things I may be doing but I will surprise you with that. So stay tuned as I hope to make some changes here on my blog. I will be updating you on my new projects in a few days!

Memories can be triggered anywhere by the smallest thing. The important thing is to document those memories as soon as possible so you don’t put them away without documenting them for the future generations. Thanks for looking! All products are by Jana Morton.

This is the Japanese Maple tree in my backyard. It is my favorite. The background photo was taken at night, then I turned it to B&W, then used a filter and blending mode on it. All products are Autumn Memories by Jana Morton, and available at Passion2Pixels. Thanks for looking.

The journaling reads: Like most siblings you two argue a lot and act like you don't care about each other. Yet when one of you gets in trouble the other one is there to support the first one. This is a scene when you were hiking, and if you look closely not only are you chatting and walking together, but Maggie has her hand in your pocket Bobby. How about that!
Thanks for looking!

Have you ever heard of Wordle???? It is place where you can create cool looking word art! Jana Morton had a wordle challenge this week. You go to wordle.net and then click on create and follow the instructions. Essentially you type in the words you want to use then without commas, spaces and one set of words per line. It then mixes it up and then you can change the font, layout and color palette. Then you save it to PDF Creator. This will make more sense when you see my page.
I think this would cool to use with the Silhouette! I am going to with my DGC. Have a good one!
I posted the other day about Jana Morton’s new site. You can find it HERE. Last winter a group of us at Creative Passions who were taking her classes began calling ourselves “Jana’s Junkies”. On her new site she has a section called the “Junkie Jive” where once a month she will feature one of her students to let everyone get to know a little more about one another. I was honored to be asked to be the ‘Lead-off batter” for this project. You can find what I had to say HERE!
Have a great day!

In 1964 Bob purchased 90 acres of property in Lewisville.
The propery had several old buildings still on it. An old log house, a shed and
a barn. All were built between 1850 and 1900. They were built down in a
valley , dismantled and each piece numbered and brought up to the
top of the hills and rebuilt . If you look inside the barn you can see the
original large logs that were used for the foundation and supporting
structures. Bob kept the structures as long as he could. The barn
eventually feel down and had to be removed. He sold the property
recently and the new owner took down the log house.

A collage of different expressions I caught on Bobby’s face! Love that sweet face!
I used a hexagon shape from the graphics products in PSE11. I then made an outline of the hexagon and deleted the original shape. I duplicated it four times more and filled the hexagon shape with color to make them into clipping masks. I clipped my photos to the masks, and then made a white outline stroke around each one and moved them close together. All products from Designer Digitals.

Finally getting last week’s lesson for the class I am taking with Maggie.
Maggie is thankful for her dog, her family, her paints, and whoever made sweets! My journaling to her says:
I am thankful for your creative spirit. You have always loved coloring drawing, finger painting...anything where you could create a picture. I have many pictures of your chalk art. You even left me a message on the driveway that you had stopped while I was away.
I am thankful for your imaginative spirit also. You can be a princess one minute and a super hero the next. You always make little objects into whatever you want them to be. You always love it when I make up a story for you at bedtime when you spend the night.
I am thankful for you. You are my first grandchild, and I waited a long time for you to arrive. I am thankful for your pretty smile,
your unconditional love, the way you always run to meet me, even though you saw me the day before. I am thankful for getting to cook
and bake. with you. You truly are a gift.

We visited the memorial in August and it is quite an experience. They have done a lot since I was there not long after the attack. There was only a shed and chain link fence there then. All this work has been done with private donations-no tax money is used to build the memorial.
Thanks for looking!
The journaling by Maggie says: “I like my room. My favorite part of my room is my sign. It says Girls Only-no boys aloud It is funny I make my brother follow it”.

When you are a Cleveland Browns fan you are one of the Dawgs. If you attend a game the prize seats are in the Dawg Pound!

Hope you have a fun day!

The beginning of the school year brings so much excitement to the kids this time of year. Did they get the teacher they wanted? Are there friends all in their class? I registered for a class to take with my grandchildren called “Making Memories with Children” with Jana Morton and her girls Mia & Ellie over at Creative Passions Classes. She has made up templates for us to use with inserts of art work and journaling included by the children. It will make an album about the child by the time we are done in four weeks. Here are my first two layouts. I let Maggie pick some of the colors and items we used on these pages.
Thanks for looking! All products are by Katie Pertiet and Lynn Grieveson at Designer Digitals.
