I made this LO for Scrappin-n-Chattin's 4 Legs LO. 55 is my cat, well the family cat. I'm not really an animal lover. As the journaling states, "55 was found on Hwy 55 as a kitten. That's where his name comes from!" In the bottom pic, he is in a gift bag. He loves getting in gift bags at Christmas or birthdays! I didn't add a whole lot to this LO since the paper has enough color already! It's Colorbok that I bought from Target, 8 pattterned sheets for $0.99!! A good deal I thought! I will be using the other 7 soon enough! This is the prettiest one I thought and I had to use it! It's busy and 55 is busy at times! He does sleep a lot, but when he gets wild watch out! I have to work the rest of the week so I won't be scrappin' untiil next week! Have a good weekend and a good day with your dads/husbands!
I did this LO for Scrappin-n-Chattin's Buttons LO. See the buttons in each of the 4 corners? These pictures were taken Mother's Day weekend 2010 at my Uncle Roy's house. We had a cookout to celebrate my grandmother being home from the hospital after her colon surgery and recovery. The pictures (clockwise) are of Tyler in a hammock chair, the Rhodes Great-grandchildren with names of each child, Tyler and his second cousins playing in the dirt, and the Rhodes Grandchildren and their spouses with everyone's names. I decided to keep this LO simple since it took me so long to put it together! I hate how long it takes me sometimes! I included buttons in the corners, because the challenge was to include 4 buttons in the LO. They add a little decoration to the LO! I'm off again tomorrow and plan on scrappin' again, so look for another blog post! :)
I made this LO for Scrappin-n-Chattin's Seasons Challenge for this month. We were to include one of the seasons (winter, spring, summer, fall/autumn) in the title. These pictures were taken in December 2009, I believe. My mom and Emily were making a snowman. I did help some, I just decided to take pictures after awhile! My stepdad is a Washington Redskins fan so we decided to use his Washington Redskins jersey and toboggan! In the picture on the right you can see him looking out the window at us. TFL and have a good week! :)
