A layout of our eldest daughter Nikki. Photo taken at what was our local coffee shop.
Paper by Fancy Pants Design, Fancy Botanical Papers Pansy. Lettering by Basic Grey. Paper from December 2007 Scraptivity Kit – they still have some left at the discounted price of $19.99 on their website.
Chris wouldn’t be too happy to see the title of this post. But I did call him that when he was a little guy. Wouldn’t have gotten away with it even at the age he is in these photos, but really wouldn’t now at the age of 16.
Chris has always been interested in music. I put him in piano lessons in second grade. I had a lady who would come to the school in the middle of the school day to teach him. Here he is playing the old piano that Aunt Jean gave us years ago for the girls. We found someone to take it in the past year, so we could make room for Mom’s furniture after her death. The old piano was worn right out, and we were unable to tune several keys.
Here’s the layout, using Dream Street Papers Tracy Whitney Designs Clubhouse – Bull’s Eye and Clubhouse – Dungarees.

Sketchy Thursday girls have provided another awesome sketch this week:
Here is my take on it, featuring my daughter Mary from 2004:
I was very disciplined until the November kit. Really I was. Would not begin another project until I completed the month’s kit that I began at Scrapbooks and Smiles class night. Then we had our late November meeting, and I was so wrapped up in Christmas preparations that I didn’t finish the kit when I returned home. Well, December’s class was early in the month, and we were given the last extra kit that night as well – the table of contents page and last page. I finished November’s kit last month, and finally at Bizzy B’s crop this weekend I finished December’s kit and the table of contents. Tonight I finished the last page. Yay! Now I have a beautiful book completed, one theme. That is a proud accomplishment. All you scrapbookers can relate.
Like most scrapbookers, there are few photos of us, because we are usually behind the lens of the camera shooting the photo ops. The photos here were taken last month by myself. Well, the advantage of taking the shots yourself is that you will persist and take the shot that makes you look THIN! Ha ha. Anyway, here is the page:
All materials by, well, Basic Grey of course. Weren’t you paying attention???????
A layout for Chris of he, Mary, Steph and Josh canoeing on Lake Shabomeka at Northern Lodge last August. We love to spend time every summer there!
