My Photography

I'm not pro by any stretch of the imagination...but I love taking are what I consider to be some of my best shots.

My Scrapping Cat

This is Hershey...he is the inspiration for my scrapbooking business...he is a 10 yr old maine coon with an attitude. He never sits with anyone, is not a cuddly, love everyone kind of pet, but I love him anyway...the only time he ever stays with me, is if I'm down in my scrap room...he usually sits in the window or on the chair next to I began calling him "my scrapping cat". When I started my business, I was with a Canadian company as a consultant, but when I decided to leave and go out on my own...I had to come up with a wasn't hard..and I think it's kinda catchy.

Baby It's Cold Outside

An old picture, and a lone one, of my daughter...followed the color wheel on this one.. 3 side by side colors...edged the cardstock with white embossing powder for that cold icy look


This is a layout of my son and I...every year, mostly anyway, we go blueberry picking together. I was inspired by my dd actually, who did a picture on her fb of her friends and it mimicked a motivational I copied her idea for my title. I do still need to do some journalling...

This past weekend, I was on the cricut boards and found some card challenges. I usually don't like making cards, but there were sketches with the challenges, and I thought...I can do here is what I made

Carolyn's Garden

We did some renovating in our back yard this year, and took some pics. The journalling is done on a paint chip from the hardware store. For the flower, I made a two petal template out of cardstock, and did it old school...trace and cut. I tried to stamp right on a silk flower, but the ink kept bleeding until you couldn't read the words...

Many Faces of the Man I Love

Been waiting for some time to get this one done...another scraplift, but sometimes ya just gotta cheat a little to get the job done.

It Was the Summer of '96

Been steadily working at getting all those old pics scrapped...been at it for a couple years. I have found it to be quite challenging as I wasn't a scrapper then, so my pics are random and not very good quality, but m happy with the overall result. These are some random pics from summer '96...found the layout in a Scrapbooks etc mag.
