Valentine Candy...

                                                  Valentine Candy...Conversation Hearts.
        You have to love a candy that will talk to you. I have a whole lovely glass block full of  Conversation Hearts...now if I could just figure out how to get them out...I could have a great conversation with them.

January, February, Winter and Penguins

                                                                     Winter is here. 
We're past all the hoopla of the Holidays and we're down to the basics of Winter......cold...cold and just a touch more cold. When I think of Winter...I think of snow, ice, cold and penguins.  What?...you don't think of penguins?  Let me fix that for you.  Here is the January Class Sampler....Penguins! Eight of them...all doing their favorite winter activities...from ice skating to ice fishing...and there is one little penguin eating a fresh icicle.  (Go ahead...tell me that you didn't do that when you were a kid.) I know that January is gone and it's February...but it's still Winter....so this Sampler will still be appropriate for this month.

Last Summer.....

                                   I love this photo of Morgan..(I say that a lot about photos, don't I...but that's why we scrapbook.)....it was taken last June at one of the Lake Michigan beaches....she loves the beach. She is definitely my grandchild!. It felt good to finally do a layout using some of the watercolor background papers that I like to make but forget to use.

A Brand New Love......

                                               Beautiful, aren't they? I love this photo. Hayley took a wonderful selfie of her brand new little boy and herself cuddled up together in 2015.
                                                I'm finally getting some layouts completed...and most of them seem to be in the same color family when I'm done with them....blues, greens and teal. This layout actually has one more mat on it in a soft blue/green stripe....my scanner decided it wasn't necessary. It also burnished the shiny gold heart to a deep bronze. When you think about it, the scanner really didn't do a bad job!
