A Perfect Summer Day

Jason is enjoying the ocean on vacation a few years back.  I created this page with 10 different patterned papers and three different lines that I thought worked quite nicely together: Crate Paper Journey, Crate Paper Poolside and Carta Bella Cool Summer.  All came from kits at The ScrapRoom. This page is up at Sketches in Thyme today and was created with a Brenda Ragsdale.

Hope you have a marvelous day!

Grand Canyon Adventures

The overnight trip that I took with Jason and Kurt by mule down to the bottom of the Grand Canyon may have been the most fantastic adventure that I have ever taken.  It may even trump going to Australia by myself when I was in my 20's.  I loved documenting our story with the Crate Paper Journey line from The ScrapRoom's August 2016 FOTM.  The page above shares my review from TripAdvisor, which I wrote very shortly after we had returned from Arizona.

I am still overwhelmed with gratitude that my two boys and I were able to share this adventure.

The switchback's were incredible.  They were scary and beautiful.

I liked the photograph of the return trail above that came with the park's description of the trip.


I can hardly believe that I took the pictures above from sitting on a mule over cliffs on the Grand Canyon.  Even the memories are surreal. I hope my children never forget that this challenge that they took with their mom.

Thanks for letting me share my adventure of my lifetime with you.  :)

Fourth Grade Band

I chose some fun, colorful papers from K1 Memories for my monthly take on Week 4's sketch at Sketches in Thyme.  I did not have any high quality photographs but wanted Kurt to remember that he played in the band one year during elementary school.  The sketch was created by Brenda Ragsdale:
I wanted a little bit more color and festivity added to the photos, and thought the circles reminded me of roaming spotlights.  

Hope that you have a terrific weekend!
