A Hershey Holiday

Hi Friends,

One of the benefits to being a CYDI designer is that I end up scrapping a lot of photos I never got around to before.  This was the case with this week's CYDI challenge, Holiday Hullabaloo.  Back in 2008, I took my daughter, who was a senior in high school, to Hershey, PA for a few days away.  For the past five years, I've been meaning to scrap it, and finally did -- thanks to CYDI!  I used Betty Edward's Ornament for the border on the top.  Hope you'll join us in this challenge (it doesn't have to be Christmas -- any holiday will do -- just not a birthday!).

Make some time to craft today!

Puppy Love!

We have a new puppy!  She is a Great Dane and we have named her Bonny.  Her coloring is classified as Merle.  We got her at the end of May 2013, so she is three months old now.  She is growing like stink!  Every time we look at her she looks bigger!  She was the largest of her litter, and her mother is 130 lbs and her father is 160 lbs so we think she will be about 140 lbs when full grown!

It just so happens that the challenge at Can You Digi It is "Lovin' Our Pets", so this was a great opportunity to scrap some of the best photos I have of Bonny so far.  It also helps that she happens to be the most photogenic dog on earth!!

So for this layout, I used Paws Up by Green Goddess Creations.  Hope you'll check out the challenge and post your entry!!

Have a great day, and hope you find some time to craft today!

Cool Guy

Hi everyone,

Had fun at the beach and boardwalk in New Jersey over this past Independence Day weekend.  The weather was great but wow was the water ever cold!  I couldn't go in past my waist!  Still, there's nothing better than being at the beach on the fourth of July and to go along with that, I made this layout of a photo I took of Spencer on the boardwalk.  I used Butterfly Bliss elements from Delightfully Distressing Designs.  Hope you like it, and it inspires you to do some of your own scrapbooking!
