Shabby Sundress Collection

This is Eve's newest collection. I really love it! It is available at Sweet Shoppe Designs, either as a whole collection (for a special price) or individually. I think it must be one of my favorites yet. Just look at the wonderful colors!!

Wedding Shower

This is the first of many layouts I will do for my new daughter-in-law's wedding shower. I've actually done another 2-page layout, but I've submitted that one for publication, so I can't share it until it is either published (I hope) or rejected (probably more likely).

Jessica chose an 8X8 scrapbook for her shower, so these layouts will be square. I'm actually creating them in 12X12 and will then reduce them for printing.

Wedding Pictures

Here are just a few of the hundreds of pictures I took of my son's wedding two days ago; it was an absolutely beautiful day!

Wednesday, May 16, 2007


We're leaving tomorrow for South Padre Island, where my son is getting married. We'll be gone a little over a week, and I don't know whether I'll have internet access. In fact, I may not even have room in the car to take my laptop (there are 4 of us going in one car; 3 of us women)! So I won't be blogging for awhile. But I should have TONS of photos to share when we get back - I'm taking my tripod so I can get shots of the wedding!

Award for Arts Excellence

My good friend's son won this award, so of course I had to do a scrapbook page for them.

Our friends in Tennessee gave us a couple of Amaryllis bulbs last month, and one of them is blooming now. I must have taken 40 shots, but I finally got a good one (IMHO).
