What I am up to....

The Month of March is here and Thank you Lord for the nice Spring Weather we are having.. It's been very warm here and very nice.. The last of our Iowa friends left this morning.. I hope they are going home safe and with nice weather ahead of them.. On our last day together we had a nice happy hour on the deck, it was fun to be outside in this nice weather..
Mean while I have been busy with the hotel,, doing more spring cleaning and renting a few cabins here and there.. but hey it's better than nothing at all..
When I am not busy I am of course busy with my hobby of scrapbooking and Project life.. I wanted to share with you a layout I did of my lil grandson a photo of him that I love very much..




I added this layout to my Project life album.. I love this photo of my lil Grand son.. he is just too cute.. 


This project life layout was added to my Project life album 2014. I took tons of photos of flowers at Lowe's when we shopped there a few weeks ago.. I love flowers and these had so much color..

Project Life March

I have one more layout to do for February Project life 2014 Album. I plan on working on this layout tonight.. But I wanted to share my first page For March 2014.. I love how this page came out..

I used the design G for my page protector.. the first picture is of my lil Grand daughter who is being very happy.. Love her smile.. the next is a photo of me relaxing on our deck of our home.. Next is of a self photo of my self, I was all dressed up for a date with my Handsome Husband.. We enjoyed a wonderful lunch at Out back Steak house.. On my title 4x6 card I stamped out March 2014 Madness, added some stamped hearts, stamped bicycle, and dragon fly.. I added a wood camera, arrow, that I found at Micheals.. then painted the Heart made of wood. I love how this turned out.. and the colors matched well.. I have never cared for my own hand writing but I am learning to love it.. so my journal is in my own hand writing.


On the other side of the page protector I made this 4x6 card and stamped it with a heart. added tiny hearts around the boarder of the card. then colored in boarders using my colored pencils.. This photo is of my beautiful youngest daughter..

Color Studio Class

My color studio class starts tomorrow, I am already excited about this class today we were given our first assignment today.. so much fun to find a favorite image or color you like and pull together scrapbooking papers elements and so on from the colors of the image.. I want to add a layout of my lil grandson birthday to add to my February project life 2014 album.. so this class is going to be a big help for me..


My colors are Red, Blue, and Yellow. Pattern papers are cut into two inch, one and half inch, and one inch circles. I cut them out on my Cameo.. My layout is inspired by Jamie Long she had a layout in Scrapbook Trends Magazine Create Embellish... My photos size are 4x4 and 3x4. I am using a Heidi Swapp color magic frame and will use color shine spray Mustard to color the frame.. the number three is from Pink Paisley London Market.. Navy Blue arrow from Heidi Swapp. Red button from October Afternoon, Tags are cut from Studio Calico Sugar Rush Labels.. white foam letters are from Thickers. when I get this layout all together I will be posting more.. so stay tuned...

MS Trip....

This past week end I was in Mississippi for my little grandson third birthday.. it was a great time..


I arrived on Friday and picked up the lil man at his other grand mother house, we then drove to Long beach to meet my daughter, and grab a to go chicken salad at harbor view restaurant.. Off to Walmart from there to pick up a few things.. then back to waveland to pick up dinner at taco bell for tristan and his sister edelle. we picked up edelle at her aunts house and then headed home..


edelle and tristan enjoying their tacos...


I love my daughters Mardi Gras reef that she made.. very simple but so pretty...


Paw Paw Gary sent edelle some quarters to put in her piggy bank, so she is counting her bank roll.. I see a new piggy bank in her future.. 


After a full belly of taco's and some cookies for dessert, it was play time while mommy and daddy went out to get supplies for the big party.. not long was the kids asleep.. it was a long day..


The next morning edelle and I had a girls day planed.. edelle is all dressed and ready for her day with her maw maw..


we had breakfast at Mc Dees edelle loves the hash browns so she had two,, plus a pancake.. it was the start of a good day..


after breakfast we headed out to Barns and Noble, edelle is playing with the train set in the children book area.. she got a new magazine.. with stickers.. we also went to Old navy, and Micheals of course..


Back to waveland for lunch at her all time favorite taco bell.. she ate two soft tacos.. 


Then to the play ground we went to burn off some of the energy.. all in all it was the best girl day ever...


Then back to the house for the big birthday party.. this is tristan cake.. I must say it was the best tasting cake i have ever had.. 

The theme of the party was Jake the Pirate but tristan was not to much into dressing in his pirate costume.. but he found his gift bag early and grabbed a gift out of it.. 


Edelle is all rocked out in her pirate eye patch color pink...


after a full day of shopping, playing at the park, and birthday party, it was not to long after a bath that the kids feel asleep.. The next morning I headed back home.. it was a great two days spent with my grand kids.. I love spending time with them and making memories to last a life time.. I have not added this to my project life album as of yet but that is in the working..
