Hoping You are having a Blessed Palm Sunday!

Well I am here to place two new LO's on my blog. I had these photos concerning Easter, "According to Children" is what I named them. They are of my nephews daughter and her children. I used Winged Heart Ohio's Victorian Easter Kit to show off the photos. 

The photos were taken at the Akron Zoo and I found
them to be so precious I just had to share them with all of you. Hope you enjoy them and I encourage you to click on the Comment under the layouts and leave me your thoughts about them. I like to read them.
And as always I pray that God's Blessings be on you!

Busy day today but I wanted to Post and place two new layouts that I have completed they are of my two adult children. My daughter was in from out of state for a family funeral. Though the circumstances were unpleasant, it was wonderful having her here with us. I remember in earlier posts telling you that my goal for this year is to get my photographs scrapbooked and hopefully all up to date. Well LOL I realized the other day, that it is not going to happen in this year but hopefully during these next two years! I have a lot of family photos from as far back as the nineteen sixties.  The two layouts below I used CE Designs BoHoGardenbook pages and they worked perfectly with my photos.  You are able to leave me a comment below, I value your opinion because that is how all scrappers learn and improve. 
                        As always, May the Lord Bless You!

Well February has come and almost completely gone so very fast!

     February has been a very full month for me with daily homemakers work and digital daily creative time (which is what I love to do) that it has come and gone. I have told you before that I am not a daily or even weekly blogger though I would like to be. I hope this month has been a very good month for you.
     My uncle Ernie and aunt Barbara celebrated their sixtieth wedding anniversary on January 21st. Their  daughters gave them a party of celebration on the 24th and it was so beautiful and so much fun for the entire family and extended family. I want to take a few moments here and now to thank his daughters for the wonderfully beautiful celebration. Of course I gathered photos and have been digitally scrapping them and of course I want to share them here with all of you. So far I have four layouts completed and am sharing them with you so here they are!



  Ernie is my mother's youngest brother and her family has always been very important to me we have always maintained a loving relationship through their life time. There is nothing in life that can separate a family if they put God first in their lives and family second then all the other things in life! They have seven children, one son and six daughters, seventeen grandchildren and four great grandchildren (so far). Yes, Ernie and Barb have always put God first in their lives then family and it resulted in a wonderful family blessed by God!
     When my Lord comes and takes me home I will once again see my father, precious mother and the rest of her family that has already gone to heaven!
        Praise God from whom all blessings flow!
Until my next post here I pray you accept Jesus as your Redeemer if you have not already done so and learn to walk closely with Him and if you already have I pray for that closer walk with Him for you! By God the father, Jesus Christ His son and the Holy Spirit is how we walk this life.
                       God Bless You

A New Year filled with new opportunities and Blessings!

   Welcome to the new year. I have been very busy transitioning into this year. I have set myself a lot to accomplish this year concerning photographs and getting them sorted and put into albums then going back one album at a time and scrapbooking it. It is a lot to accomplish but I am determined! I just completed one album for my husbands family where we were celebrating his mothers eighty third birthday. I used a kit by Raspberry Road Designs and created by Susan Deter titled "Family Gatherings". When I saw this kit on their website I just had to have it. It is such a beautiful kit! Below I am placing the layouts that I created with this beautiful kit.







I began with the front cover page and ended with the back cover page. In these photos that were taken in 2009 is one of my husbands sisters (the one with short hair) who was battling cancer and passed away five months later. I found these photos and wanted to do something special for each of the living siblings and my husbands mother and decided on this album to give to each of them. 
   Now I would like to tell you that PixelScrappers  January Blog Train "Crafty Evening" is available on their website and all the designers participating have created wonderful additions so click the name above and hurry over and get all their contributions.
               Until you come visit my blog again may                                God Bless You !

Hey, where did October go?

   Yes where did October go? I want to start it over again, it went bye so fast! I didn't even get to go driving around our areas to see all the beautiful colors but I did buy me a large mum plant and even got it planted! It is a Lavender color mum and I plan to buy another color next year maybe even two of different colors. Our weather has been in the forties at night and fifties during the day but this next week it is supposed to get back into the seventies, alright that is what I call fall weather, at least it use to be.
   During October one of my favorite aunts had her 95th birthday so of course our family had a Birthday Party for her and had relatives from all over the U.S.A. come home to join her and what fun we all had visiting her and each other! Of course I took photos, previously I placed the first three layouts on here so I would like to put the final three here below for you to view now.


Sally's my BFF and her Designer name is WingedHeartOhio and if you click on her name it will take you directly to her blog where     you can download the entire kit that I used titled "The Music of my Life" as a freebie. Please do leave us a comment because we do like to hear from you and we do value your opinions.                           
As always I pray that God will Bless You Abundantly

October is my favorite month of the year!

Yes October is my favorite month of the year because in Ohio it is the month when Nature displays her most beautiful color schemes all through that which GOD created for us to enjoy. The changing leaves of trees, colors of flowers and grasses, harvest of falls healthy foods such as squash, especially pumpkins. I love all things pumpkin: pies, pumpkin & crème cheese rolls, muffins, cookies, cake, soups, coffee creams, breads. I love all the different kinds of squash to bake, grill, fry, add to soups and salads as well as desserts and breads! WOW GOD, thank you for everything!

Well I am back again to share some Freebie news !

August was a very busy month, I could tell you were praying for us and September isn't a whole lot calmer yet so keep those prayers going before God for us!

On August third a cousin of mine passed away, on August twenty seventh his elder brother passed away and September sixteenth an acquaintance of ours from our church passed away. It surely has been two very emotional months for all of my family but I must say that Jesus has carried us through it all! Praise God from whom all blessings flow praise Him all creatures here below, praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost! Isn't it wonderful to know them personally and know that they are our source for everything if we just allow them to be? My prayers for you are that you know or learn the truth concerning God the Father, Jesus Christ His Son and the Holy Spirit and accept the truth and learn to walk with them personally and as Always you are in my prayers.

My Husband's Birthday Surprises !

Hello again, I am back to share with you all of the layouts I have created so far with my husband's marathon memory keepsakes. I already gave it to him on his birthday but he has completed a lot of runs so I had eleven completed for him at the time I gave it too him but I am continuing until I complete all of his runs. Below you will find the first eleven:










It took a lot of work, I used EMS Arts Kit titled Marathon but it was not the colors that I truly needed so I had to also create my own papers for the proper colors of the keepsakes, it was challenging but at the same time exciting for me. I have now completed three more layouts, I have placed them below for you to view. Please don't hesitate to leave me comments, I would like your opinion and value your opinions.


 Now to get back to doing more of his runs for his memory album, by the way, if you noticed I titled his album "Marathon Man" and I did that because he is my marathon man and I am so proud of him!
    Until next time I pray that God will Bless You and Your's

Working on my husband's Birthday Surprise and having so much fun!

     Hello, I am back again and as you have been able to see I am just not an everyday blogger. August has been a very busy month for me in many different ways. August 3rd  a cousin passed away from cancer and August 19th his brother passed away because of leukemia and pneumonia. It has been a very emotional time for my family. God does sustain us and the Holy Spirit does comfort us and Jesus walks closely with us as long as we allow them and I am so grateful.
     My husband's birthday is this Thursday the 27th and I had told you in my last post that he is a Runner and has Run in many Marathon races over the years and that I wanted to make him a Memory Album with all of his keepsakes from each run and so I am placing my created layouts that I have completed so far here for you to view. Please don't hesitate to leave me a comment by clicking on the word comment below this post, I would love to know what you think of them. I have used graphics from EMS Arts' Marathon kit as well as some that I created myself.  The first layout will be the first page but is presently missing my husband running out of the frame but I will place him there before I print it. The other 5 layouts are completed as you see them. I have many more pages to layout so for now I will close my posting so I can get busy but not before I remind you how much Jesus loves you and remind you to allow Him to walk with you.
                                        God Bless You

Sorry it has been nine days since I've been back!

Well I have been busy in my personal life as well as doing digital layout creations for others. I do digital memory albums for other people as well as my own. Since I do have a BFF who is a phenomenal Digital Designer, she keeps me supplied with kits for what ever theme I need or want. You can click Here and it will take you to her blog where you can see all her lovelies for yourself and upload all her free beauties. My husband's birthday is coming up this next week. He is a runner and has entered many marathons over the past fifteen years and I have all his running bibs, meaning his number papers they wear while running and lots of information sheets about each run as well as all his ribbons and other keepsakes that I have already scanned into my pc so I have decided to surprise him with an album of all his running experiences, it is one thing I know he will really like and appreciate. I am really excited about doing it for him and now you know what I will be doing all this next week, doing what I love to do, digital art work!
     I hope this weekend is a very blessed one for you and your loved ones and remember that Jesus loves you , just open up your heart and ask Him to come in and forgive you of your sins and He will do exactly that and live in your heart forever! He brings love, joy and peace for as long as you allow Him.
       Blessings to you ALWAYS

I am having so much fun!

It is so much fun for me as I create layouts of my life experiences by using the perfect papers and elements. Winged Heart Ohio's kit titled Bugs In My Garden is so perfect for my photos of when I and the ladies of my garden club went to tour a farm that contained five acres of floral gardens. I feel like an artist creating an oil painting as I create my digital layouts and I enjoy creating every bit as much as an artist who is painting.
     In my previous post I shared with you four of my layouts from her kit and below I am sharing three more layouts from this same kit. You can go to her blog by clicking here and download all of her wonderful designed creations she certainly is an exquisite designer.
Do leave us comments we enjoy reading them and they do so inspire us because we value your opinions.
     And as always do remember that you are very special in God's sight.
