More old photos. Yay! Still playing in digi-land. This kit came from petit moineaux and is called Orangeade.

Nothing else of any excitement is going on in these I guess that's all I'll post today. Oh! I don't think I'll get to my February calendar page in Feb. considering tomorrow's the last chance. I never got any good photos for it, but hopefully I'll figure out something so that I continue with the project.

I've been tagged... I guess I'll play along...haha!

The Rules:
You must list one fact about yourself for each letter of your middle name. Each fact must begin with that letter. If you don't have a middle name, just use your maiden name. After you've been tagged, you need to up-date your blog with your middle name and answers. At the end of your post, you need to tag one person for each letter of your middle name.

My middle name is...Lee (Woohoo! Mine's short too!)

L...lefty! Yes, I'm a south-paw. least people around me are generally laughing...hmmm.

E...ever-changing. Life makes changes, so I make changes. Interesting how that works.

A little freebie

I used to make digital scrap kits...I used to enjoy doing it too! So today, I decided to spend a micro-second of time and play a bit. I came up with some papers I sort of like. If you like them too, then feel free to download them and enjoy them. I'd love to hear what you think of them.

You can download them here.

Just a wee little scrap

Some of the old pictures I received are tiny, and therefore the scans are tiny. So, I picked up a few "tagger" scrap kits at Candy's Treats so that I would be able to make them look like they're big and fantastic anyways. This is just a picture of my grandma. It looks like it's from one of those photo booths at the mall. Though, they probably weren't found in a mall back then...haha!

I love T.G.I. Friday's. Their sizzling chicken & cheese is the best! Yesterday we drove to Williamsport to meet my nurse friends for the afternoon. They're traveling nurses and currently are serving time (haha) in California. I can think of worse places to be in the winter, that's for sure. But, they were home for a little vacation, so we were glad to get to see them. We went to Friday's for dinner where I had lots of fun playing with my camera. I made this lovely layout today to showcase my favorite picture of my hubby to date.

I'll probably scrap some of the other photos once I have another day off. Though most of them I actually want to print and paper scrap them! Shock, gasp! I don't know if I'll remember how, but I'll do my best.

On a roll

I'm so inspired by all these old pictures that have finally made their way into my possession that I just can't stop. That and all of the generous freebie digital scrap kits I've been finding lately have kept me well supplied with creative energy. So here's one more for the weekend. This is my mother as a baby. I have the date is 1953, though I think this picture was taking in 54. I'm not exactly sure. (Sorry for publishing a birth year, mother...haha.) Another great kit I picked up from Kalanice.

Just threw together this page of me and my sister in 1988. Loved the bright colors in this kit I got here. I hope it didn't get too busy, but I like it even if it did.

Told ya so...

Well, I got busy on a layout with my newfound old pictures already. I was inspired by the pinks in this kit I got from Mandy Mystique's blog. It was a freebie to celebrate her grand opening, and is now on sale at buzybeescrapper. The alphabet spelling out "family" is something I've had for awhile, I thought it worked great with this kit. I thought all the pinks worked well with the pink tones in this photo.

And here are a couple of surprise pictures. While looking through my cousin's photo albums...I came across pictures of my dad's dad. This is odd due to the fact that this cousin is from my mom's side...hehe. So here are the two pictures I found and snagged. Notice my grandfather had an afinity for carrying his camera do I. Coincidence?

I hope to get the rest of these old photos scanned over the next few days so I can order prints to make the book for my mom. Very exciting.

Old photos

My cousin recently gave me some old pictures he had inherited from our aunt. The one above was taken when I was a baby. Those are 2 of my 4 sisters and my mom with me. Obviously, I won't remember that one being taken.

This one is a picture of my mom's dad in his army uniform. The back reads Private "Dutch" Renshaw. Taken at New Cumberland. That's the first picture I've ever seen of him in uniform. I think it's pretty cool.

And this one is my mom's mom when she was a girl. It's hard to picture grandparents ever being young, so I love this photo just because it lets me actually see her. There were a few more of my grandma when she was younger...I'm so glad to have received them!

I can see these photos becoming some scrapbook pages in the near future. I'm actually considering making a book with all the pictures of my mom and her mom and dad for my mom's birthday. It's coming up fast, I don't know if I'll achieve it or not. We'll see!

Kim's Birthday

My mother-in-law's birthday was last week. I made her a card using a few papers from My Mind's Eye Bohemia line. I thought it came out pretty nice, but the picture doesn't do it justice. Here it is anyhow...

I also made a digital layout of the event. For every birthday, the family tries to get together for cake and ice cream. It's never a big thing...but just as the quote says, the small things really are the big things in life. It's always great to get the family together. I used the Wild Sorbet kit from Michelle Coleman of
