Baby Mittens .....

Found this photo I had scanned a while back lurking in my files. I miss my Mittens! She was a gift from my boyfriend (and roommate) on the 4th of July in 1989 when I was living in Seattle. Such a tiny little thing about 6 weeks old. She was with us until January of 2005. She was my baby before Ollie came along. Even though we have six fur-babies now and I wouldn't trade any one of them .... well I still miss my little girl.

Journaling reads:  Look at that sleeping kitty.  Can you find her mousie?  Playing with him must have tuckered her out.

Another gorgeous layout from Beth ....

Love her layouts, love even more that she uses my kits (or in this case a Sisters by Heart kit).  Isn't this layout gorgeous? 

She used the new Sisters by Heart ~ Brown vs. Pink kit from Sisters by DeDe Smith and Georgia Oliver.  You can find it @ Digitals here.

She's done it again .....

Beth is simply amazing!  I send her a kit and she can whip out a fantastic layout faster than anyone I've ever seen.  I'm in awe of her talent.  Here's her first layout with the new Sisters by Heart ~ Brown vs. Pink kit.

Isn't this great?

Sisters by Heart ~ Brown vs. Pink

Sisters by Heart has a brand new kit in the store!  Introducing Brown vs. Pink ....

DeDe (DesignZ by DeDe) happens to love the color brown and her sister by heart, Georgia (Dreams Ink! Digital Designs) happens to love the color pink. By themselves these are great colors, but put them together and something fabulous happens! Brown and pink are wonderful for girls and for Valentine's Day and for many other uses. Use just the brown parts or the pink parts or put them together for that magical touch!

Remembering Papa .....

Three years ago today we lost such a huge piece of our family and heart.

Here is the post I did that day:

This photo was taken the last time I saw Papa Merlin.  I miss him each and every day.  I'm know he's with Grandma Vonda now and they are watching over my angel, Jenn.

Reminding myself ......

February/March 2011 ~ Scraplift Challenge

Join me at Digitals for the scraplift challenge! You can find the thread here.

WELCOME TO February/March!

We are having quite a winter here in New Jersey! I know many others around the country are also. We've already logged about 5 feet of snow so far for the season and we have 2 months of winter left. The first day of February we are receiving lots of snow and sleet. I don't know about you, but I'm dreaming of spring!

Great layouts in response to last challenge! This is such a fun challenge to run, everyone is so creative and I love all the different takes on the layouts each month.

This time I chose this gorgeous layout by Cyleigh.

This layout is so much fun with all the layers and the series of three photos and then the perfect small round photo below. LOVE it! Tons of inspiration here!

You can find this layout here. You can also find her gallery here. Be sure and check out her gallery for one beautiful layout after another. I sure hope you'll stop by and leave her some love.

I hope you can find some inspiration in this layout to scraplift. Be sure to include at least three items by Digitals designers in your layout to be eligible for the prize.

When you've completed your layout, post it to the Scraplift Gallery, then come back and post a link to your page to this thread. This gives us all a chance to oooh and aaah over your layout. It will also help me to make sure that I don't miss sending out anyone's posting bonus.

Here is a preview of your prize this month.

Have fun and I can't wait to see what you do with this challenge!
